A dream cottage house called Hunting Island Cottage with amazing view, located in Hunting Island, Maine designed by Knickerbocker Group. Rough stone walls, antique furniture, crisp but soft decor, a spectacular cottage!

 Once a hunting retreat with no electricity, the original cottage held a couple of small rooms, rustic plumbing and remnants from ocean debris washed in through windows during winter ocean storms.

 An open airy bedroom filled with local art is an inspiring and private retreat for island guests.

 Natural stone shower tile keeps the main bathroom’s look in line with the rest of the home.

 The cottage’s exterior walls are made of stone found on the island.

 A modest addition allowed for more elbow room while retaining the elements of the original structure.

With the cottage located so close to the water’s edge, careful attention was given to be sure the building could withstand the ocean’s fury yet invite gentle summer breezes and the ‘music’ of an ocean setting.

For the romantic in all of us, this stone cottage seems to rise right out of the rocks it was built on. Perched on the shore of a one acre island, the cottage bravely faces the open Atlantic Ocean.
