Private 1.5-acre Maine Island For Sale

Billy Milliken has listed Duck Ledges Island for $339,000. The 1.5-acre private island off the coast of Maine is nestled between the state’s Acadia National Park and the Canadian border in Addison.
Deeply rooted in Downeast Maine, Milliken has owned the island since 2007. In 2009 he built a one-bedroom, single-story, 540-square-foot cottage near its sandy beaches. The cozy cottage has wood flooring and a single deck that faces the coast. The treeless landscape provides a unique view of the natural environment, including the local seal colony.
Reportedly, conditions on the island are unforgiving between October and May due to freezing temperatures. In fact, potential buyers are required to spend one night in the cottage so they can experience exactly what they’d be getting into as the island’s owner.
However, no matter the level of the tide, Duck Ledges Island has quality anchorage and landing points. Mooring can be found adjacent to the island, a quick boat ride from the public marina in Jonesport, Maine, and a facility in Addison.
