The lighthouse is the very reason this place exists. This humble cottage was built to house the lightkeeper and his family while tending to the lighthouse on the remote Penobscot Bay island.

This extremely rare opportunity to own some Maine mariner history is reflected in the steep $1,975,000 price tag.

Isle au Haut is a rugged island with a small year-round population and daily boat service from the mainland – located some five miles away. So you wouldn’t be totally isolated.
