Nestled in a quiet spot on the hillside with views of the meadow below, across to the village, up to the lighthouse, and over to Manana, Holdfast House gives you the best of all worlds. Just steps away from pizza and ice cream at the Novelty in one direction and the yoga studio of Monhegan Wellness in the other – who could ask for more? Bring your binoculars to enjoy the birds in the meadow and the apple tree just outside the window. You’re welcome to bring along some seed to fill the feeders if you’d like to keep things hopping.
Head on up to the front door and step into a large L-shaped living area, bright and airy and including a desk conveniently located at a north-facing window looking out over the meadow and up to the lighthouse, all set for a writing retreat or the work that you just couldn’t leave at home. Ahead is an open galley-style kitchen fitted out with a gas range, full size refrigerator with freezer, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave along with dishes, pots, pans, cooking utensils and a couple of empty growlers just waiting to be filled with locally made root beer or Trap Stacker Ale at the Monhegan Brewing Company. Upstairs you’ll find a full bath with tub/shower and two bedrooms at the front of the house. The cozy twin includes a lovely window seat for quiet reflection while the double beckons with the promise of views of Manana right from bed when you open your eyes in the morning. There is a gas heater in the living room to take out the chill on foggy days. Cell phone reception is spotty as it is on most of the island.
