Kirstie Alley’s Oceanfront Cottage on Maine Island

Kirstie Alley's Maine Island Cottage

Kirstie Alley marches to the beat of her own (slightly eccentric) drum, even when it comes to decorating. Her Islesboro beach house in Maine is unapologetically girly, filled with pink walls and floral fabrics. It’s on the market for $2.35 million, so let’s take a look!

Kirstie Alley's Maine Island Cottage

The 3,100 square-foot clapboard cottage sits on 16 lush acres on an island in Penobscot Bay.

I would never think to paint my kitchen pink, but I think hers is fun. I’m suddenly craving cupcakes.

It kind of reminds me of Minnie Mouse’s pink kitchen at Disney World that I showed you last year.

Looks like she collects all sorts of vintage goodies.
There are 5 bedrooms…

…and 5 baths:

The island is only reachable by ferry, boat, and air, so it’s very private.

    Kirstie style here is unabashedly girly, pastel colours everywhere. Love it! It would be like living in a lovely fantasy film. Her weight loss is amazing and she looks fantastic. Go Kirstie!!!

  3. Brigid says

    I agree with you, all it would take is some paint, and it could look like a coastal cottage… but I like it as pictured! It’s cozy and pretty :) Now, where did I put that extra 2 million??

  4. says

    Love it! Not the pink, for sure, but some fresh paint would be an easy, inexpensive change. I think the only other thing I would alter would be the scalloped edging on the shelving. Otherwise, it’s gorgeous. That house has great bones and excellent location. And yes, she looks FAB.

  5. Beach Vintage says

    Absolutely in love with this placw, thanks for sharing x x

  6. says

    Paint is such an easy thing to change… I have a daughter who would take the pink kitchen – and the whole house really with the exception of some of the wallpaper – just like it is and absolutely love it! If I had the funds, I would buy it in a heartbeat! The location and views are wonderful…… :-)

  7. Barbara says

    It’s a little too frilly for me…..the wallpaper, curtains and way too much “stuff”
    made me a little dizzy. Kinda looks like a Shabby Chic store. But, many things were
    really nice especially the Depression Glass.

  8. Jenn says

    Love it! Unabashedly girlie in every respect! I love the “go big or go home” aspect to Kirstie’s decorating style. The “vintage” appliances in the kitchen are awesome!

  9. says

    I think it’s so cute! It’s a place when you embrace your “little girls dream”. Super cute!

    Have a great weekend!

    PS: I’m mentioning you on my post today. I know you’ll remember that house! :-)

  10. says

    I love it! I remember a few years ago watching something on TV when she had her kitchen remodeled by Nate Berkus. It’s always been one of my favorite kitchens. She has beautiful tastes.

  11. Farmeress says

    Cozy and a place for the brain to rest and feel the change of scenery and location. Love some of the bold ceiling treatment which brought smiles.

  12. says

    Hatin’ on the house. It’s just a little too much like a doll house. Always have been a Kirstie Alley fan though. I had NO idea she lost all that weight. My mouth hung open for a good 30 seconds!!! WOWZA:)

  13. says

    It’s not really my style, but I do like pink and fun color combinations. If I were rich enough to buy that house, I’d be rich enough to own a second residence decorated in a more restrained style. In fantasy land, it would be fun to own this house as is to stay in when you want to indulge your girly side.

    BTW, she looks incredible in that picture.

  14. J. Elizabeth says

    As I was trying to think of words to describe this, I kept coming up w/ things like “yummy”, “appetizing”, “scrumptious”–all food words. That kitchen is a siren’s song of cupcakes, parfaits, and dimity. Love the pink. Love the airiness. It’s such a cheerful house–a place that’s good for your soul. And the ceilings are awesome. The only miss for me was too much pattern in the green bedroom–and I’m a MacKenzie-Childs/Mary Engelbreit fan, so that’s saying a lot. Maybe Kirstie’s place in LA is all hard-edge, modern, and Zen-ny and it took away her appetite. She looks unbelievable now.

  15. Beverly Palmer says

    I think she did an amazing job for her style. It’s absolutely beautiful even though it’s too girly and frilly for me. The bones of the house are incredible and I love the high ceilings.

  16. jeannine520 says

    Good for her on her weight loss! I’m sure she feels great. I’m not too fond of that style of decorating, it’s too fussy and girly for my tastes so yes, I’d need to redo it. The house itself seems nice though.

  17. laurie says

    Hey, it’s all about the location and I love the location! If I HAD to……I could break out a paintbrush and make it more to my taste (wink).

  18. says

    It absolutely looks like a doll house….

    She has a great sense of style. And she looks great again…

    Not sure I would keep it that way..I am too outdoorsy…I’d be afraid to touch anything but the house itself and the spot it is in…Love it!

  19. says

    Kirstie Alley is looking great these days! This house is a little too shabby chic for my taste, but you’re right, all it would take is a little paint here and there to change that. I love that shade of pink, but I’d rather have it in my bedroom instead of my kitchen. It is a bummer that they tore down Mickey and Minnie’s house at Disney World. I thought that they were really neat when we went a few years ago.

  20. Maddie says

    Good for her! She looks great and she decorated a house to suite her style. The pink is enough to give me diabetes, but I am so sick of the neutral gray, gray and more gray. You are right. A little paint, change some light fixtures, your own furniture and it would be a perfect beach cottage (I’m talkin’ a rather large Newport style cottage). But I wouldn’t turn it down.

  21. Cindy says

    I *LOVE* it! Love love love it! But…I don’t think my husband would feel very comfortable living in something that in-your-face-feminine.

    The good thing is this house has great bones! It wouldn’t take much at all to tone down the ultra-feminine vibe without losing the cottage charm.

    Great house!

  22. Lindab says

    It is a little too “sit down and have a marshmallow” for me, but boy do I love the layout. I love the ceiling in the living room.

  23. says

    Love the house but the decor was so sweet I needed a shot of insulin to lower the blood sugar.

  24. Kim says

    I’m not a fan of the wallpaper, but that could easily be changed. Other than that, I love this cottage. Especially those high ceilings and exposed beams. This cottage would be a great place for me to sit back and relax. Plus those views are amazing.

  25. says

    Love the house. I could make most of it work, but there are some things a bit too girly for me and would have to be moved.

  26. says

    I’ve always loved her..and her home.
    I could move a flash..if my family lived close and I had 2 Million dollars.. hoping she is negotiable:)

    It’s so pretty and the views are just great.
    It’s got her stamp everywhere.

  27. says

    Wow! very pink and frilly!! But a wonderful house in a fantastic setting – I could live there in a heartbeat (would have to paint the kitchen though!)

  28. melissa says

    I love it. I would move right in and live happily ever after :-)

  29. Staffy says

    Ugh…… nice house, shame about the overwhelming tack enveloping the place!

  30. says

    I LOVE this house. Especially the pink kitchen with those darling scalloped shelves! I couldn’t live in it 24/7, but what a great place to rent for a girls weekend, right? I love Kirstie, she looks fabulous and I think has great decorating taste. Or at least great taste in hiring the right decorators! :)

  31. says

    OMG, that house is my pink girly dream. I would happily live in it as is (if she left the furniture). Now James Bond, Indy (and probably Han Solo, once he’s old enough to have an opinion) would hate it with the heat of a thousand suns. We’d have to repaint to make it more coastal to satisfy them, but I think I need it as a private retreat just for me! Think I could talk James Bond into that? :)

    And I can’t believe they took down Mickey and Minnie’s houses. Sadness. Do you know what they put in their place?

    • says

      They wanted to focus on more “princess” types of attractions, according to one worker I talked to when we were there last year. At the time he said they were just relocating the houses, but readers who went this summer say they are no longer there.

    • says

      No, she’s single (last I heard, anyway!) and her kids are grown, so she didn’t have to share her girly beach house with anyone else.

  32. Elvira says

    The house has great bones and the location is superb, I love it. The decoration has too many “skirts” and too many pastel colours for my taste, it’s like a bakery or a candy store. Julia, your comment on having a craving for cupcakes in the pink kitchen was spot on, I felt the same! I would tone the decoration down a few notches and it would be perfect.

    Kristie is looking great now with her new figure. Good for her for losing all that weight!

  33. Maria says

    Love it. She’s had this place for awhile so think it must’ve been done when Shabby Chic was all the rage. Easy and inexpensive fixes to update it.

  34. says

    I love it! I wouldn’t change much. Maybe tone the pattern down just a bit. I especially love the kitchen and bathroom in the photos.
    People are always so opinioned about others’ decorating tastes. It can be hurtful, I know. I’ve had people insinuate that my house is too pink or girly (pink is actually only an accent color used in a lot of our house. Ha) and still others have accused it of being too neutral in color. Ha You can’t please everyone, so people just have to decorate for themselves and their family’s enjoyment. :-)

  35. says

    Wow–I’m surprised so many people love the uber-girly thing. Looks like it’s a great house in a beautiful location but the decor would give me nightmares, complete with elephants in pink tutus and demented sugar plum fairies.

  36. Mary in TN says

    I love her house. It’s nice when you have the money to spend on the things you love. And she looks like Denise Richards in that pic. She’s done a wonderful job of reinventing herself and I am so happy for her.

  37. Jill McNeal says

    I love it! If I had the money~ it would be mine! I would love the privacy so my dogs could just roam around… :)

  38. Janice Mahon says

    I read somewhere several years ago that Kirstie puts all her money into real estate. Probably not a good idea today, but this house is beautiful.

    Kirstie is a girly girl and it shows. I kind of like the pink, it is warm and inviting.

    And she looks great, she’s 60 years young, and has a winning personality. Go Kirstie!

  39. JW says

    This house would be perfect just as it is for many people. Those who want to change it drastically should probably look at some other type of property/

  40. Nita says

    Her house is tres feminine like she is. It’s cute. She looks wonderful, but it’s easy to get a girlish figure back when you lose that much weight if you have never had a baby.

  41. Mia says

    Lovely house and location, but I would have to strip it and redo it before I could step foot in it!

    About the Minnie house…it’s gone, and so is Toontown…they are putting in castles for each of the Princesses at that location. Belle’s castle, of Beauty and the Beast, is going to have a fab restaurant…and as I recall, Ariel’s castle is going to have a ride in it. You can check the progress online at various websites. It looks like it’s going to be lots of fun!

  42. Lauren says

    I love it, very girly! Might be a little too girly to convince my hubby to move though 😉

  43. says

    The house is gorgeous! It may not be decorated to every ones taste, but what’s the point of having a home if you can’t style it to suit you!

  44. Virginia says

    I have gotten lost in your site, because I too am hooked on houses. This home is charming.

  45. says

    She must have had the same decorator as the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island! Wow! the color and busyness! Fun though.

  46. kylie says

    Ms Allie you are one truly blessed lady, this home is adorable, I can only dream :)

  47. Joyce Michelin says

    Well cute is certainly the right word for it. Unfortunately, it’s so sweet it makes my teeth hurt.

    • Jane says

      Gotta agree with Joyce and others. A bit too cute for me but would love being a guest there. I’m not one for painted and frilly floral chandeliers. The whole house screams “girl’s bedroom” to me. But hey…more power to Kirstie for knowing what she wants and anyone who wants the house should be able to realize wallpapered and painted rooms can easily be fixed.

      The location and privacy ave to be MAJOR selling points.

  48. says

    Just stopping by from pinterest. Oh my, I think I could totally get hooked on this site. Off to read more…

  49. Mikey says

    It wouldn’t take much at all to redecorate her house. Now, Christina Aguilera’s on the other hand…
    I see a 37 acre island with home, in Maine, on for 12 mil. An amazing property. Ah, what a life…
