This expansive studio features large windows overlooking Vinalhaven Harbor (recently featured on the cover of Yankee Magazine!) a fireplace for chilly nights, two large comfortable seating areas featuring a mix of vintage furniture and oriental rugs, and a table perfect for cozy dining or board games. Private outdoor seating area overlooks the harbor.
The sleeping loft, accessible by pull down ladder stairs, sleeps 4 on one full and two twin beds. For those less adventuresome (also see loft access age and weight restrictions under house rules), an innerspring full size futon and a twin pullout sofa offer the option to sleep on the main floor. There is a private full bath with basic personal care amenities.
Guests can enjoy light housekeeping with an outdoor gas grill with side burner, microwave, mini refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, plates/cups/glassware/utensils (NOTE this is not a full kitchen). Lobster pot. Complimentary coffee and tea. Crisp 100% cotton sheets invite a deep restful sleep after a day exploring the island. There is a flat screen TV for use with VCR/DVD and HDMI cable, and a selection of movies for all ages. Free WiFi. Selection of books, Maine-related publications and vintage magazines. Cell phone access can be arranged via a cell booster on premises (AT&T customers get reception but for all others there is limited coverage on the island).
Hiking, swimming, kayaking and cycling are just some of the activities island visitors enjoy. Kayaks and bicycles may be rented on the island. Concerts, lectures, ham & bean suppers, nature and bird walks, and other events are regularly sponsored by various island groups and organizations. The Vinalhaven Historical Society boasts an impressive exhibit on the island’s history, from its 18th century roots as a fishing and agricultural community to its heyday as a significant producer of granite for some of the nation’s most important buildings including the Washington Monument and the U.S. Customs House in New York City. A guest binder provides you with all you need to know to enjoy your island experience.
