Eagle Island is completely off the grid; meaning there are no electric or telephone lines or water systems coming in or going out.

Everything that is brought to the island has to be either consumed, composted, or brought back to the mainland to be recycled or thrown away in order to maintain the pristine landscape that we all love and cherish and that makes the island such a special place.

All of the rentals on the island have varying systems to accommodate the basic needs that are usually taken for the granted on the mainland. We use rainwater for utility, washing dishes, showers, etc. and we carry all drinking water from wells.

Some of the rentals have solar power providing enough electricity to power reading lamps and some have none at all requiring candles, portable solar lamps and flashlights. We have found that for most people, this lifestyle is a welcome break from our modern lives in the “real world” and offers a new perspective on what we believed we were dependent on.

Hill House

Hill House sits on the highest point of Eagle Island offering spectacular views of Penobscot Bay. Built in 1898 as overflow for the Quinn boarding house, all the doors are numbered in continuance with the bedrooms at the farmhouse inn below, giving visitors a real feel of the building’s history.

Treena’s Camp

Treena’s camp was built in the early 1900’s and generations of her family have been living in the sweet little L-shape cottage on and off for just over a century. The camp sits atop a small knoll with west facing, panoramic views of Penobscot Bay and the Camden Hills.
