With a classic Maine setting of rocky coastline and sweeping views over Boothbay Harbor to the Atlantic Ocean, this early 1900's cottage affectionately known as the ''Mousetrap'' is ideally set on the water's edge of Mouse Island. Mouse Island is a private 16-acre island with approximately 6,000+/- feet of water frontage. Ownership of this cottage includes a 1/3 interest in common of Mouse Island with just two other cottages. This seasonal cottage has 2,044+/- square feet of living space and features 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 fireplaces. The sun filled cottage has retained its original charm and character with wonderful water views from most rooms. A waterside covered porch overlooking the anchorage is the perfect venue for outdoors entertaining and family gatherings. The anchorage that is exclusive to this cottage has a newly built pier and 2 moorings that provide access to the region's exceptional boating activities. The shared/common Mouse Island features include a large wharf with deep-water docks, large storage building with a workshop and bowling alley, caretaker's cottage, 2 waterfront studio buildings, tennis court, south-facing sand beach, walking paths and trails. The island is served by electricity and seasonal public water from the mainland. The island is accessed by private boat and is conveniently located within 2 miles of the coastal villages of Boothbay Harbor and Boothbay. The villages provide a wide variety of specialty shops, restaurants, artisan galleries, marinas, golf and tennis facilities, and the Boothbay Botanical Gardens. Portland, Maine's largest city, is 58 miles away while Boston is 163 miles to the South. This special property a wonderful step back in time.
