My wife and I both are professors at the Maine Maritime Academy here in Castine. I am a merchant mariner and professional sailor, my wife is an Oceanographer.

Andy Chase purchased this house in 1998

This is not a rental property. It is our home. We are fortunate to have a camp on an old piece of family property nearby where I summered as a child. We spend the summers there and make our home available to you.

We bought this house after renting in town for 7 years. When it became available we knew it was the perfect home, because it is in sight of the harbor, near the middle of the village, yet its location inside a corner of two streets makes it incredibly private. Sitting in the garden in summer, you can't actually see any of your neighbors or either street, as they are all hidden behind various hedges.

Great House, Beautifully Kept

This was our 9th stay, and I can't imagine summer without our visit to Castine and this beautiful home! You can always tell homes that are kept "just for rental" versus those that are lovingly lived-in. This falls into the latter category, and it is homey and well-stocked. Andy and Lauren have new surprises for us each year, with regard to new furnishings and accommodations. They are very responsive in answering e-mails. We highly recommend this home, and are already looking forward to our trip next year.

Top Notch Home in Beautiful Castine Maine

This was our 8th stay at this property - so clearly we love it! We like to cook, and the kitchen is so well stocked that we always find whatever implement we need. The gas grill outside works wonderfully for grilled salmon, steak or hamburgers. We love reading in the living room (very comfortable chairs), but there are also games and a TV room upstairs. The view from the deck is spectacular, and sitting on the deck overlooking the Penobscot makes for a relaxing afternoon! We always visit the Wilson Museum and the Castine Historical Society. For dinners in the area, we like the Pentagoet Inn, Dennett's Wharf (more casual) and Arborvine in Blue HIll (about 45 minutes by car). Don't miss a cruise on the Guildive, a beautifully restored 1934 William Hand wooden sailboat, captained by the nicest, most professional, husband-wife team a person could ever wish to meet. By all means come to Castine and enjoy it - it is magical!

We have rented the Chase house for two weeks each summer for many years. The house is always immaculate. The interior architecture makes the home seem even more spacious than it is. The location is great - everything you need is pretty much in walking distance. (BTW- they have a great high tech washing machine too!)

Hi again. 2008 will be the 4th year that we've rented Andy and Lauren's home, and obviously we are very happy there. In fact, it feels like going home, every time we turn into their drive at the beginning of our stay! The house is very comfortable, and is well-equipped for good, relaxing vacation. We used to go out to dinner most nights during our Castine stay, but we find ourselves cooking in more and more each year. The grill on the deck is easy and efficient, and the kitchen, though small, is well-stocked and easy to move around in. So we put on some music, open the windows, open a bottle of wine, and then preparing dinner becomes fun rather than a chore. In addition to the kitchen, we enjoy the well-furnished living room, the colorful garden and the deck with the great view, and the comfortable bedrooms. You'll love this house too, BUT DON"T TAKE OUR WEEK!! ;-)

After four wonderful seasons of bliss at Andy & Laurens lovely home, I'm a little afraid to say how much we enjoyed it...for fear that it'll be rented the next time we come. But, after four years, maybe we have an "in" with Andy. The house is truly a "home." A super kitchen, which inspired us to cook in rather than going out which, by the way, saved us a pile of dough. A lovely, comfy living room and a great deck overlooking the harbor. Three very pleasant bedrooms and 2&1/2 baths, so nobody's bumping in to anyone else. But most of all, the house just feels "right." Each time we drive up the driveway, we look at each other and say..."let's stay a little longer this time." And, maybe next year, we will.

Castine, Maine is one of the most historic and well preserved coastal villages on the entire US East Coast, originally settled in the 1600's.

The Castine area is host to theater, summer concerts at Kneisel Hall (30 min. away), quality shops, art galleries, antiques, Maine Maritime Academy and fine restaurants. Centrally located between Camden and Bar Harbor (1-1/4 hr. to each), the town offers a quiet and convenient place to stay.

In Castine, we have one of the oldest nine hole golf courses in the country, a tennis club (clay courts), yacht club, Dyce Head Lighthouse and many historic walking trails. Working fishing villages, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Camden, and Isle au Haut are all lovely day trips accessible from the town.

The local waters are favorite cruising spots for yachts and the Maine windjammer fleet. The area offers several excursion boats, hiking, and sea kayaking. There is a rocky beach just across the road, or 1/2 mile away is a sandy public beach.

Other Activities: Maine Maritime Academy pool and fitness rooms nearby, open on limited basis, with user fee.

Golf: The Castine Golf Course is a challenging and beautifully maintained 9-hole par 35 course. Scottish golf course designer, Willie Park Jr. laid out the current nine holes in 1921, which offers stunning views of Castine Harbor and Blue Hill.

Considered 'one of the greatest golf architects of all time;' Park said the Castine course was one of his best. Park's design presets nine holes on Windmill Hill across from the Revolutionary War era Fort George and overlooking Castine Harbor and Blue Hill in the distance. Not only was Willie a deft putter, but he was the man to beat in golf club and course design.
