Whether you’ve fantasized about owning a private island or are simply itching to go off-grid, this newly listed Maine property may be of interest. Dubbed Duck Ledges Island, the 1.5-acre lot sits between the shores of Maine’s Acadia National Park and the Canadian border. It includes a quaint one-bedroom cabin that offers an unparalleled coastal getaway.
Set off the coast of Maine, Duck Ledges Island can only be accessed by boat, offering a truly off-grid experience.
Built in 2009, the 540-square-foot structure oozes with charm, starting with the swinging hammock on the covered front porch. Inside, the open-plan living space features tall picture windows that offer panoramic views of the oceanic setting.
The cottage rests in the middle of the island surrounded by smooth sand and lush patches of grass, which can serve as additional campsites for guests.
The wood-clad walls and timber-framed windows enhance the interior’s warm and rustic aesthetic, while the pitched roof elevates the overall sense of space. A wooden ladder provides access to two twin beds on the cabin’s upper level.
