The Dwelley House

The Sig Harrison House

Are you looking for a lovely, traditional clapboard house on Islesford, just a short walk up from the dock (meaning you can leave car life behind during your vacation)?

If so, our well-maintained house, which dates from the mid-1800’s, might be just right for you.

We are a hop, skip, and jump from the dock, restaurant, post office, art galleries, and beaches, which means you can get everywhere on foot or bike (two provided with the house).

Furnishings and artwork are good quality, with three bedrooms, a sleeping loft for young people, traditional oak dining table and chairs, screen porch for watching the world go by. There is an extra bed on the porch.

The house accommodates six people. Croquet set and volleyball net. Cart for hauling groceries. Baseboard heat for chilly mornings and autumn vacations. Wifi. Contact Kit Harrison for inquiries:

Available July – October. $1300/week. Minimum stay two weeks.
