Pomp Island is a beautiful 37 acre island with a 3-bedroom log cabin where you can spend your vacation enjoying nature on the sea shore and in the woods.
Come explore the shoreline and woods of Pomp. If you are quiet, you will see deer and a variety of birds including hawks and bald eagles. Greet the lobster men and women as they haul their traps around the island, and enjoy sunsets over Cadillac Mountain from the front porch.
Bring your own (or rental) boat, kayak, or canoe and you can explore neighboring islands, each with their unique shoreline, beautiful coves, and small sandy beaches. You'll also see rocky outcroppings where harbor seals, cormorants, and gulls cluster. A mooring is available for a boat up to 18 feet in length; kayaks and canoes can be hauled on shore.
Enjoy relaxing in the cozy cabin (please see pictures!) There are 2 bedrooms downstairs, each with a bunk bed, and 1 bedroom upstairs with a queen size bed. There is 1 bathroom downstairs with a toilet and shower. The kitchen, dining, and living areas are together in one open area with vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has a gas range, refrigerator, sink, and is furnished with cooking utensils and dinnerware. The dining area has a large dining table and chairs. In the living room you can keep warm with a nice fire in the wood stove and kick back with a book in a comfy chair or sofa.
Pomp Island is off grid. Bottled gas provides energy for cooking, lights, and hot water. A cistern system is used to collect rain water for washing and showers but you will need to bring your own bottled water to drink! Cell phone reception is good.
Pomp is not for everyone, but is truly a treasure for those who are looking to get away and enjoy the ocean, woods and island living of Down East Maine.
Pomp Island is about an hour north of Acadia National Park in Down East Maine. It is accessed from the mainland at Jonesport by bridge to Beals Island and then by a 10 minute boat ride. The Island is offshore about a half a mile and is surrounded by many other small islands. Each island is unique, many are uninhabited, and so are open for exploration. This area is a haven for kayakers, boaters, and nature lovers who enjoy some comforts but also the experience of living away from the hubbub of everyday life.
