Really a Great Island

ME1089_1NcLast week we posted about a saltwater farm in historic Castine, Maine. This week our focus takes us out into Castine Harbor, to a small island that’s special enough to be called “great.” That’s its name, in fact—Great Island—and is it ever that! It covers about 11 acres and includes a lovely house that offers sunrise and sunset views—a real rarity for Maine waterfront.

With a deepwater dock and a location just a stone’s throw from Castine’s public landing, this place offers the privacy and seclusion of an entire island paradise combined with easy access to all the amenities and comforts of the mainland. There are only a handful of private islands for sale in Maine, and each one has its own special character. Owning a private island isn’t for everyone, but for someone who wants exceptional privacy and natural beauty within view of a charming village center, it doesn’t get any better than Great.
