East Rising is a delightful family-owned rustic cottage on Orr's Island. When you walk into the home it is very apparent that it has been loved and cared for generation after generation. Walking through the front door, there is a mudroom and laundry room and to your left there is a suite with a bedroom and a bathroom and to your right is the kitchen. The kitchen is practical, yet roomy for all of your cooking needs and next to it is a nice dining room with enough seating for all to gather round and enjoy a lobster bake with family and friends. The next room is the living room, which offers an abundance of seating with beautiful views of the ocean and a fireplace, adding comfort,as well as, rustic style. Upstairs there is a cozy bedroom with a twin bed and a full bathroom, and three other bedrooms. The two large bedrooms upstairs are spacious and have unbelievable views of the ocean. All of the rooms are comfortable and full of character. East Rising surroundings offers a wonderful yard and a large swing set for children to play, and a nice wrap-around porch for people to enjoy the view of the open ocean. There is also a path that leads to the ocean for a swim or for exploring the nearby coast. The cottage is just a short walk away from Lowell's Cove, which is a small local beach that natives have enjoyed for many years. It is a great location for kayaking, swimming, and soaking up the sun. With all of its character and charm, the opportunities for fun and fond memories are endless at East Rising.

This is an unusually attractive Maine cottage with lots of old-fashioned charm. The neighboring houses are close by, but the foliage makes the house quiet and private. The setting is glorious, with spectacular ocean views, and there is a short pathway to the rocky shore which we found offered an ideal location for evening cocktails. The morning sunrise is spectacular, hence the house's apt name. The rocks are great for swimming, but it's impossible to put in or take out small boats there such as kayaks because the drop-off is steep. The four upstairs bedrooms are spacious and comfortable though sharing just one bathroom. The downstairs bedroom does not have a water view but has its own bathroom. The kitchen is dated but it was well-equipped and everything worked fine. We would definitely rent this house again. We had two really good weeks there, and could have stayed two more.

We had a wonderful two-week family reunion at East Rising! This home is ideal for a large group that values gorgeous ocean views and large, comfortable, indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy the views. We loved walking down to the water to sit on the rocks and contemplate the beauty of the ocean and the islands. There is no easy kayak launching from this property but there are nearby launch spots within a short drive. The sound of the ocean can be heard at night in the two master bedrooms and it was a truly magical sound to fall asleep and wake up to. The first floor bedroom is perfect for anyone who is less mobile.
