For years, House Island in Casco Bay has been a beloved destination for weddings and celebrations. Just off the coast of Portland, Maine, and with 26 acres of beauty, the island has always offered privacy in a truly luxurious setting. Now, in the midst of the pandemic, Noah Gordon who owns the upper 12 acres, has repositioned his portion of the island as a safe and private retreat for both short and long term rentals.
“The northern 12 acres of House Island with its 360 degrees of unobstructed vistas of Casco Bay, 5 beaches, 3 luxurious homes, 3 helicopter take-off and landing zones, deep water anchorages for yachts and killer sunrises and sunsets may be rented for $250,000 per week, plus expenses (a competitive price range for yacht charters and larger scale residential properties).” – PR Newswire
From take-off in New York or DC to feet on the ground on the island, House Island is within a two-hour trip, making it quicker to reach than the Hamptons, Nantucket, or Martha’s Vineyard. Activities available on the island include everything you can imagine that would come with the benefits of a beautiful island with 5 beaches; swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, lawn games, and outdoor sports, just to name a few. Attentive hospitality staff, private chefs, and 24-hour security offer all the amenities you need to enjoy a safe short term or long term stay.
We have had the pleasure of working on House Island, illuminating weddings and milestone celebrations, and we are thrilled at the prospect of more people getting to enjoy the scenic beauty of this historic location! For a peek at our work on the island, view our recent blog post of Margo and Collin’s charming wedding that took place last summer. (See below for a few shots captured by Jamie Mercurio Photography!)
