Pumpkin Point is located on Rackliff Island, which is part of the Tenants Harbor and St. George Peninsula. The island is access by a causeway and truth be told, getting to this beautiful, waterfront house is almost as breathtaking as the property itself.

Driving down tree lined Island Ave, the road suddenly opens up onto one of the most stunning views you will see: at the end of the causeway, a pine studded island settled in the middle of Wheeler’s Bay, a vibrant boating and fishing community. Pumpkin Point overlooks the wide, open ocean and the outer islands on the horizon, Spruce Head Island to the left and Clark Island to the right. You will see lobster boats, sail boats, kayakers and cruising boats working their way around the Mussel Ridge Channel.

Pumpkin Point was designed and built to bring its unique and striking waterfront location indoors – floor to ceiling windows, warm wood abounds and a soaring fireplace, built from the very granite surrounding the island, is the mainstay of the family room.

Outdoor living spaces are found on each floor – a covered outdoor dining area, a sprawling deck at the front of the house as well as two private decks on the second floor. There are views from virtually every room and they are ever changing as the tides.

The property itself sits on a small point; on one side, the lawn leads to a private wharf and smooth granite ledge dipping down to the water and an easily accessible sandy beach dotted with tide pools on the other. This property is the best of both worlds; go boating and fishing from the wharf in the morning and then spend the afternoon with your toes in warm sand reading a good book.

Rackliff Island is perfect for walking, running and biking – plus, it is equidistant to the villages of Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor and the larger cities of Rockland and Camden/Rockport. The communities have vibrant centers with restaurants, museums, shops and cultural events.

The main floor has a spacious family room with a fireplace and a large kitchen with a dining area to seat 10-12 people. Both these rooms have access to the front deck via French Doors. The ceilings are high and the natural light is beautiful. Also on this floor is the master with a king bed and an en suite bathroom with an oversized customer shower. A smaller bedroom is on the opposite side of the house with a queen bed and a full bathroom (tub and shower combination) in close proximity. The front vestibule of the house has a half bath as well. The first floor also has a mud room and a laundry room.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large game room with a regulation sized pool table, a minibar, a cozy conversation area overlooking the water and a multi-purpose room.

The first bedroom has a queen bed and water views – there is a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination just outside the door. The second bedroom has a queen and water views – it also has access to a private, roof top deck with a bistro set. The views from this elevated deck are amazing! Adjacent to this bedroom is a smaller bedroom with two twin beds accessed through the queen room. Another full bathroom with a tub/shower combo is also just outside the door.

The multi-purpose room, which is accessed via stairs leading from the garage on the first floor has comfortable seating and a foosball table.

Pumpkin Point is truly an escape to another world – it allows for island living without needing a boat or a ferry. The natural beauty that surrounds it is found inside as well. And although it can host a large group, it doesn’t feel overwhelmingly big…it feels well-planned and comfortable with nods to well-developed aesthetic style. Pumpkin Point allows you to experience Maine – the real Maine which is precious for all that it is and all that it isn’t.

Other things to note
WIFI NOTE: Agent recognizes that access to the internet is as important as electricity and running water to most, if not all, people. However, Maine is a more rural state by nature and infrastructure. Accessibility is limited, often unpredictable and unreliable depending on location.
While some properties do have internet connection that is more “modern”, many properties are in locations that only allow for DSL or satellite connection which can be slower and at the mercy of weather, whole network connectivity and the like.
Please be aware we cannot guarantee the speed or accessibility of the internet at any of our properties during your stay.
Outages of any type are not the basis for a refund. We cannot guarantee repair times or repair person availability.
With that said, if you have certain needs regarding the internet, please let us know and we will indicate the properties providing the service that best meets your needs.

All linens and towels are provided.

One-on-one attention is a rarity these days. Luckily, at SummerMaine, it is the foundation of our business. So don't expect to get a receptionist or have to press "1" for rentals. When you contact me, you are contacting a company that truly wants to make your vacation as perfect as possible. As crazy as it sounds, I am as excited about your vacation to Maine as you are! SummerMaine is essentially a matchmaking service — a matchmaker pairing vacationers with the perfect house to make their vacation just right. If one house isn't the right fit for your needs, I will help you find another that is. After you find the house, look to SummerMaine to be a guide to the area. Want to eat a lobster dinner on a dock or take in a world-class concert? How about a ride on a lobster boat or a day at the spa or the perfect place to have a picnic? Just ask...I'll point you in the right direction. The reason SummerMaine is so good at this? I love Maine — after all, I was born and raised here and ultimately made to decision to return after 10 years of living "away." Being brought up in the small community of Tenants Harbor gave me a unique view of the world which has been enhanced by the opportunity to explore places outside of Maine's borders. I enjoyed everywhere I went but, after all, there is no place like Maine! I know why people want to come here, to vacation here and to be part of our unique way of life — whether it is for one week or the entire summer. The Midcoast area is such a special place. The feeling you get here is about more than being on vacation. It is about an experience and an escape for family and friends. I believe in the absolute joy of spending time in Maine and that's why I love this business. I love sharing a place I cherish with people who may have never experienced its pure simplicity and welcome back those who have already fallen in love with it. SummerMaine is Maine and SummerMaine is where your perfect vacation starts. We look forward to making you vacation a memorable one! See you this summer, Fletcher
