See yesterday’s post for more details on this off-the-grid private island in Maine.
Winter Harbor, Maine
The main house and beachfront bunkhouse together can sleep 12. The main house has three bedrooms, two baths, and sleeps six. This is also where the kitchen, dining area, and the living room are. The bunkhouse sleeps six, with four bunkbeds and a double bed in a loft. Rental includes on-site hosting and one round-trip to/from the mainland per day. Your hosts will do your grocery shopping ahead of time for you so your vacation can start right when you get there (you pay for the groceries).
Rates: $5000/week for six. (That’s $119 per person, per night. That’s heading toward Green Postcard’s upper limits, but you’re getting a whole island!) $150 for each additional person. -- $5900/wk for 12. (That’s $70 per person, per night. If you can get the kiddos in the bunkbeds to pony up their allowance.)
Super Splurge: If you want to be truly pampered, Spectacle offers a fully catered package for up to six guests that includes three meals and three round trips to the mainland per day. Up to $9500/wk for six.
When you’re packing for your Spectacle Island trip, Jaime suggests including Island Boy, by Barbara Cooney, and Time of Wonder, by Robert McCloskey, for the kids. Although Jaime says they listen to a lot of Billy Joel and country on the island – “feel good, relaxing music” – she also promises this: “Spectacle alone has its own special way of making you feel good.”
