This 2 story Victorian Gothic style cottage was built in 1986 and sleeps 4 people. It is surrounded by the ocean on 3 sides with views of open ocean glistening in the morning light to the east, neighboring islands to the west, and to the north there are beautiful views of the only mountains on the Atlantic coast of North America. Both sunsets and sunrises can be seen from inside the house.

Instead of separate bedrooms the house features beds in windowed alcoves with extraordinary views. There is a dining area on each floor and the spacious kitchen on the second floor has French doors leading onto a western facing deck for viewing sunsets while dining.

Great Duck Island is a blend of pointed fir forests, seaside meadows, wildflower and moss gardens, surrounded by popplestone beaches, granite cliffs and hedges of wild roses. It is the nesting habitat for a large number of birds, including bald eagles, guillemots, eider ducks, petrels and seagulls. There are also a large number of hares on the island which are often seen scurrying about.

The island is a perfect place for couples or families seeking solitude and an intimate experience of nature. The beauty of this magical place: the sparkling ocean, the crashing waves, the glorious sunrises and sunsets and the romantic mountain views will nourish and restore your soul.
