This is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Just imagine pulling into the driveway of this classic Maine summer cottage and comprehending that it's yours.  All yours.

You'll pull through the gate and then slowly drive down the rock lined driveway where you'll park in front of the barn, all the while admiring what awaits you on this almost 2 acre property.

You'll then walk the path to your new two-story summer cottage situated on a piece of oceanfront land that any tourist from away would die for. This 2,052 square foot 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, cottage known as "Ledgelawn" is located at 27 Lighthouse Lane at Eggemoggin Reach on Little Deer Isle, just about 50 miles away from Bangor.

As you stand for the first time on it's wrap around porch you still can't imagine how fortunate you are to be looking at Pumpkin Island off in the distance within Penobscot Bay.

This adorable place was renovated back in 2015, and features an updated kitchen with hardwood flooring and granite countertops, a dining room that looks out over the bay, a very large "great room" with a stone fireplace and high-beamed ceiling, and just to keep you occupied when you're not admiring the view, a media room.

Now here's the kicker, this place is up for bid, as Keenan Auction Company will hold a public auction on Friday, June 11th, at 11 a.m.  Yeah, no problem at all, right?  For a $20,000 deposit, you get to bid!

Maybe just maybe you can get it for a steal.

Previews are scheduled both Friday the 4th and the day of auction.  They ask that you don't drive there, as shuttle service will be provided to this remote area.  For more information call 207-885-5100 or email to

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
