Waterfront view 4 bedroom, 1 bath House with Boat Mooring
About Jonathan Hill
We are a New Hampshire family with 4 children. We love boating. Casco Bay offers so many islands and inlets to explore. Our island house has been in our family for several generations. We rent for a few select weeks simply to cover the taxes. We spend the rest of the summer up there ourselves.
Why Jonathan Hill chose Great Diamond Island
The proximity to the beach and boating is a big part of our island house for our family. Out on the island is beautiful and peaceful. And yet fine dining and plentiful shopping can be had with a short ferry/boat ride to the mainland. July and August are the best summer months, but September is a special secret time that is simply fantastic on the island because Portland's hustle bustle quiets down.
What makes this House unique
The house is very relaxing. You can spend a lot of time sitting on the porch or the balcony and reading a book and watching the boats go by. A one minute walk to the beach to explore, or a swim on hot days, is one of our favorite things to do.

Excellent summer cottage and super helpful owners/managers.
We had a great long weekend of sailing based out of this cottage. Jonathan and Paul were super in helping with preparations, getting settled, and just being available. Highly recommend this house.
Perfect Island Getaway
Charming and peaceful home with exquisite views. Picture perfect sunsets in a nicely appointed island home. Easy communication with owner and check in/out seamless. Golf cart and bikes an awesome bonus. Hoping to return!
Perfect rustic getaway
This house was perfect for our family. We like to cook and there were cast iron pans and every implement imaginable. Dinners facing the sunset were the highlight of our summer. Love the charm and friendliness of GDI. The house is rustic but beautiful and very comfortable.
Rustic and relaxing
It's a great place to stay with your family if you want a low key, relaxing vacation. The cottage is on the rustic side, but it is in great location, facing the most beautiful sunsets. Our kids loved riding in the golf cart, playing in the water, and exploring the old fort on the island. Highlights were a tour of Fort McKinley and a date night at the Crown Jewel. The owners were very accommodating and let us check out late when there were no renters after us. And everyone is SO friendly on the island.
Great vacation on Great Diamond Island !
The property was exactly as advertised and exactly what we wanted... Quiet, restful and by the water. The owners were great and very responsive. We had 5 adults and a 1 yr old. Played at the private beach and the Great Diamond Island Assoc beach. Grilled out every night and had a wonderful family holiday ! The sunsets are unbelievable !!! Thanks again !!
Excellent renters! Great communication. Very friendly and considerate. They left our place spotless. We do hope to have them back anytime.
The perfect rustic island getaway!
Great diamond island and this cottage were more than we could have hoped for! Two families with a toddler each and two doggies ALL had the most restful, amazing week here. The cottage is idyllic with a fantastic sea view, comfy beds and really well stocked. The owners were lovely to deal with, very communicative, just a super easy transaction in all. If you're looking for a complete chill out from civilization this is the spot. No cars, gorgeous sea, very, very calm vibe. The neighbors were wonderful, the lobster was wonderful, the island is welcoming and pristine. Very thankful for this gorgeous spot!!!
