389 South Road
This island home is newly on the rental market, with interior pictures to come.* The house is on a hill at 389 South Road, in an area known as the “Massachusetts Colony,” above the Chebeague Island Boat Yard. From the front porch and upstairs, you can see the open ocean through the trees. This home was built in 2002 on 14 acres, with woods on both sides and behind the house; surrounded on all sides by big old oak trees, giving a feeling of privacy.
Honestly, the house looks a bit dark from the road, but inside every room is bright and sunny with lots of big windows… especially the sunroom.
The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the cooking supplies and dishes to satisfy a seasoned foodie. Appliances include oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge, all spiffy and clean. How big is the kitchen? With 32 knobs of maple drawers and cabinets there is plenty of space for more than one cook. Meals can be at a smaller eat-in kitchen table or the full-sized dining table in the adjacent room. But please! Have breakfast on the porch! The sunroom off the back of the house is the warmly traditional tongue-and-groove pine walls and ceiling and a great spot to read a book….for peace and quiet just close the door into the house and open the windows.
The house has three bedrooms. One bedroom is on the first floor at the back of the house with an adjacent bathroom. The second floor has two bedrooms. One over-sized bedroom is the size of the entire front of the house and sleeps four, twin beds on one end and a queen bed on the other end. The picturesque window is from this front bedroom. The back bedroom sleeps two, for a total of up to eight guests. The upstairs bathroom is a “Jack and Jill” with a pocket sliding door to divide the bathroom into two sides: shower/sink and toilet/vanity sink. Handy for sharing among the upstairs guests.
Full washer and dryer is thoughtfully on the first floor.
There is a porch along the entire front of the house. Ahhhh.
What is included? All sheets and bedding. Internet. A few good bikes. Beach chairs. Lots of birds. Walks in the back woods and walks to the beach. Your hosts are “Air BnB Superhosts” with several years of experienced hosting. Eliza Jane Adams has been a life-long summer resident with family connections in the Massachusetts Colony and ready to welcome you to island living. Husband Rocky Helpin adds the right touch of Canadian friendliness.
Minimum stay is one week, Sunday to Sunday. Some shorter dates may be available.
