McGee Island has 3 residential structures: the Main House, the Cook House,  and the Little Boat House.

The Main House is a beautiful, traditional, shingled summer home built in 1915. The interior walls were left exposed showing the beautiful wood that was used to construct the building. It has 9 bedrooms with two King, three Queen, and seven twin beds that can sleep 17 people. There are 4 full bathrooms equipped with original claw foot-era tubs as well as a relatively-new, partially-enclosed outdoor shower which tends to be the favorite place for bathing.

The Cook House, originally built in the late 1700’s, has an updated kitchen equipped with modern appliances and an outdoor BBQ gas grill. There are 2 dining areas in the Cook House. The breakfast table in the kitchen seats 6-8 and offers commanding views of the harbor. The adjoining dining room can seat up to 22 (if everyone squeezes a bit). The Cook House also has a full bathroom with a shower on the first floor and a large bedroom with 3 twin beds on the second floor.

The Little Boat House, also built in the early 1900’s, is located right on the water. It has a porch, a comfortable living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom on the first floor. The entire second floor is a bedroom with two queen beds. This makes the Little Boat House a favorite with teenagers as it gives them a place where they can be on their own, can talk with each other ‘till all hours, and is close enough to the Cook House for late night snacks.

Barter and McGee Islands form a natural deep-water harbor that can accommodate yachts up to 60 to 70 feet in length. If you don’t have a yacht, don’t worry; our caretaker will be happy to transport you and your luggage and groceries from Port Clyde to McGee in our island boat.
