Bird's Nest sits high on a rocky ledge immediately on the mouth of the Sheepscot River. Surrounded by conservation land, this house boasts spectacular views out to sea. With 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 large family areas, screened in breezeway/breakfast area, modern kitchen and 1600 sq. ft. of space, this house can fit 6 in beds, plus 2 on futon. Also, golf cart,fireplace, W/D and shower. Includes dock. Ferry service on lobster boat 3x/d Jul/Aug. Immediate access to rocky point and Beach.
Bird's Nest is the perfect island cottage, with modern amenities, separate sleeping quarters for 1 - 2 guests, and a very linear layout, so guests can chose to congegrate in the living room (with half the wall in plate glass windows overlooking the stunning ocean view) with fireplace, games, and music; or retire to more secluded quarters that are spaced out so that privacy and quiet are guaranteed. Each bedroom has its own bath, though those living in the detached bedroom must come to the main house for theirs.
Disponible para huéspedes
Bird's Nest sits on 3 pristine acres, with just the lobster boats, gulls and ospreys to interrupt your peace. Or, walk just 5 minutes to the South side of the island for a game of tennis, a visit to the candy store, or a stroll along the sandy Cory Cove Beach.
Atención a los huéspedes
I grew up spending summers on MacMahan Island in the house bought by my great grandfather in the early 1900s. It was my love of MacMahan that caused me to settle in Maine and raise my family here, and to finally purchase my own MacMahan house in 2015. I now live just 45 minutes away and am available for any question or concern during your stay. Further, the island Superintendant and his crew are available to help with any problems that might arise with rented boat (if you rent one), golf cart, or house.
Now my children will grow up with the freedom that an island and close knit community affords, a love of the sound of the wind and the waves and the birds, and the smell of the balsam fir and sea that permeates this secluded and quiet and welcoming island.

There truly is no place like MacMahan, and Bird's Nest is my favorite spot on the island. Bird's Nest is immediately on the ocean and is unique among the island cottages in that it offers a separate sleeping cabin (great for your pre-teen or teen!), longitudinal floor plan that allows family to spread out if they like, and island location that is private and quiet, yet close enough to the bustle of the "south end" if desired. See for more information.
Guests must adhere to rules in MacMahan Island Handbook, designed to protect the safety of the community and tranquility of this very special place. This will be provided.
