Kelley's Cove - Family Home

Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
This has been a great family home for years with lots of wonderful memories for many people. It is conveniently located between town and the ferry. It has a great views, lots of wildlife, grass yard, and water access. Kelley’s Cove is located towards the start of Fairbank Point, where the water starts on the southeast side (sunrises). Beautiful morning sunrises are across the water and to the left. Kelley’s Cove is a dug-in cove/bay which provides well protected water access and dockage. This is a great area for boating, canoeing, kayaking, and decent fishing. It is about 2.7 miles from the ferry dock and about 5.5 miles from town. The Kelley homestead was originally built in 1951. It was added on too and updated over time. Being built in the 50’s, it was common for bedrooms to be smaller and without closets. There are 3 bedrooms with queen beds and an open wardrobe type closet for clothes. There is only one bathroom. The living room has a great water view and door access to the front deck. The kitchen has electric stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, cooking utensils and dishes (everything). There is a laundry room with washer and dryer. Towels and linens are provided. Internet WiFi is provided and is good enough for Youtube or Netflix streaming. The entire house has been recently re-painted and many items updated. There is a front deck to relax on, with grill, table and chairs. There are two docks out front, providing a boat slip for you, while the other is for the caretaker and potential kayak rentals. In the front yard is a fire pit with log style seating and enough firewood provided for a fire. Often there are 2 families of ducks being raised in the cove, with plenty of deer and other wildlife passing thru. The bay itself is about 6 ft deep and the bottom is not rocky or sandy, but muck(a squishy soft bottom). There is a right of access to the water for kayak rentals on the front right side of the yard. Renting kayaks is very convenient. On the satellite view, you will see outside the kitchen window is a private drive, which gets occasional use by kayak renters. No Smoking No Pets - unless discussed and owner approved with a $50 pet fee Check-in at 4 pm and Check-out at 10 am. Minimum stay - Summer = 3 Nights... Spring and Fall -2 Nights...

Serene and special
I wish I could give Kelley’s Cove 10 stars. I chose this place for a surprise weekend getaway and it exceeded all of my expectations. This was our first time to the island and we were blessed to find this place! Our favorite part of the house was the window overlooking the cove where we enjoyed our morning coffee while watching the deer, mergansers, and sandhill cranes. The pantry, kitchen, and bathroom were all well stocked, above and beyond any other Airbnb or VRBO I’ve stayed at. Communication with the host was top notch and all of my questions were answered quickly. We can’t wait to come back next year to do some more exploring and relax at this special home.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic place!
This Drummond Island rental is great! Can't say enough about how well stocked the cottage was. If you think you forgot to bring something (toothbrush, hair dryer, coffee, etc) don't worry - it's all there! Right down to the makings for s'mores and everything you need for a pancake breakfast. Kari the caretaker lives real close and is right there if you need her. Communications with Jason (the owner) and Kari are the best. This place comes highly recommended and I would MOST DEFINTIELY go back.

5/5 Excellent

Jeep Weekend
Kelley’s Cove was an excellent place to stay! Clean, easy to get to, close to the ferry! It was absolutely perfect for our weekend Jeep The Mac trip. Check in process was easy, we had friends arrive early and Kari accommodated them immediately. I would recommend this property to anyone that is visiting the island. Although we weren’t at the cabin much since we were out and about, we will be booking for more days next time. The only small issue we had was with the internet connection for our cells phone and TV which wasn’t a big deal since we were on an island and it’s expected in my opinion. Pretty typical for a secluded cabin. Thank you Jason and Kari for our wonderful stay! See you next year!

5/5 Excellent

Very nice place
Lovely all around. Property is very well maintained and super clean. It rained throughout our stay but we brought our raincoats so we still did some hiking.

5/5 Excellent
