Kayakers’ paradise. Island cabin. Easy landing sites. One double bed, two single bunk beds. Cook on wood stove. Bedding (sheets, pillows, duvets). Water for kitchen dishwashing is rainwater from the roof. You can use the filter to make drinking water or bring your own drinking water. No hot water unless you heat it yourself on the wood stove. One towel per guest. Cutlery, dishes, pots and pans. Keep yourself warm with the wood stove on chilly days and nights. Cabin is not winterized. Sliding patio door looks out to the ocean. No fridge. Lighting and phone charger is solar powered. Clean outhouse. Plenty of islands surround for day trips. Park at public wharf for a short kayak to the site. Paddlers should be mindful of tides. Easiest to arrive at the cabin from the wharf when the tide is rising (coming in) or flat. Picture yourself here - cooking on a Lunenburg foundry wood stove, in an 19th century lobster fishermen’s shanty on an uninhabited island. Exploring nearby islands, you’ll find remnants of abandoned Acadian homesteads - old foundations, overgrown orchards, rock walls, wells, bridges, old breakwaters and wharves. There are also many places to explore on Outer Sheep Island. You’re likely to see great blue herons in the summertime, owls, eagles, hummingbirds and lots of species of sparrow, warblers, and finch. Wonderful place for mushrooms. You’ll see old Acadian forest and find an old well and sheep paths. Great places to swim all around the island.
