Imagine owning a beautiful vacation retreat without having to travel very far from home, combining isolation and convenience.

Have you ever thought it would be great to have an island retreat but worry about tropical storms and hurricanes? One you could escape to for a weekend because you don't have to travel that far from home? The solution can be found on Fox Island in Orrington, which offers a beautiful summer retreat without the bad weather.

Located on beautiful Brewer Lake, the island only has two other cottages, and so your island retreat will be very secluded. You'll have an area for private parking of your vehicle, so you can boat over to your island paradise. With a fireplace, laundry, beautiful porch, and outdoor eating area, you'll have everything you need for a fun and successful getaway. I can personally attest to the fact that the boating and swimming on Brewer Lake is great. You'll want to pack some bug spray, however, because the black flies can get pretty thick.

Close to Bangor and Bucksport, it would be easy to zip out for a movie or dinner out. This idyllic property is listed on through Trisha Quirk with ERA Dawson-Bradford Company.
