Overview

Cundys Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

This warm, secluded and enchanting country home with breath taking views from every window will make you think you’ve just stepped into a Currier and Ives painting. There are many near by activities to enjoy; you can water sking, boating or fish right from the dock. A twenty minute drive will take you to the historic town of Brunswick.

The post-modern, shingle-style, 4100 square-foot house is located on Sebascodegan Island in Casco Bay on the coast of Maine.The property is situated on a totally private, secluded peninsula within the Cundy's Point Association on five plus acres, with 2000 feet of shoreline. The house is within 50 feet of the water on all three sides. There is a private dock which will accomodate a boat of up to 40'and a mooring is provided. To the West are open views of Quahog and Casco bays, Big Hen, Birch Island, and Yarmouth Island. To the East is Ridley Cove and the picturesque fishing village of Cundys Harbor. The International Jet Port is just 50 minutes away.

The sunrises and sunsets from this location are magnificent. There are several paths from the house through the extensive natural landscaping, perennial beds and cutting, vegetable, and herb gardens, which add charm and color all year long. The gardens extend to the sea banks; they are professionally kept and contain peonies, old-fashioned beach roses, lilacs, Asiatic lilies, dahlias, blueberries, wildflowers, lupines, rhododendrons, bayberry, hydrangeas and foxglove.

The Living Room faces the water with direct access to the wrap-around deck through three sets of French doors and a staircase to the back gardens and deepwater channel. The Living Room also has a woodburning fireplace! Directly behind the Family Room is a large screened porch for waterfront dining and boat watching. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms and two guest baths. There is one one king sized bed, two queens beds, two queen pull out beds and two twin beds. One of the bedrooms has an adjoining sitting room, which can be used as a fifth bedroom.

The property also has a dock for tieing up your boat or swimming.

Simply spectacular

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with Cundy's Harbor many years ago when visiting a friend who was living there. The charming little village is quintessential Maine, and though it is secluded and unspoiled, it is also very convenient to restaurants, shopping, and for touring the coastal region. This house is truly magnificent, but not in a pretentious way, decorated in excellent taste, with no detail overlooked. The kitchen is a chef's dream, the rooms are spacious, and every room has water views. The private setting makes you feel you are in your own little world. Unlike many vacation rentals, this a truly a home, with warmth and personality.

Idyllic setting indeed

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at this lovely home and it was one of the most serene settings we have ever experienced. The location could not be more beautiful and the peace & quiet is incomparable. The people in the small community it is located in were very friendly and to watch the local lobstermen was fascinating. Being very close to Brunswick with all of its restaurants and Bowdoin College influence is another big bonus. Our family, friends and dogs had a tremendous vacation here with all the relaxation or activity one would choose. This is the quintessential Maine vacation - pines, rocky coast, beautiful inlets and peace and quiet. A very well maintained property and spacious house with owner and caretaker eager to make sure the guests were happy.

Spectacular luxury home at Cundy's Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully kept home on a property with quintessential Maine waterfront scenery. The photos are accurate, but don't really convey the true beauty of the house and property. The kitchen and gas grill are high-end appliances; the home furnishings are warm and inviting. Unlike many rental properties which are devoid of personal touches, this home is filled with collectibles and art work. This may not meet all tastes, but we found it to add warmth and personality to the house. Dan, the caretaker, was responsive when the propane tank ran empty on the grill, and he was helpful in offering suggestions on where to buy fresh lobster.

We spent a week here leading up to Commencement at nearby Bowdoin College, and found the location of this property to be convenient. We found the 18-20 minute trip to-and-from campus to be easily done multiple times during the week, and also were able to get in a day trip back to Acadia. After four years of staying in various locations in and around Brunswick, this home has an ideal combination of spaciousness, luxury and location. Although we no longer have a student at Bowdoin, and therefore nothing drawing us specifically back to the Brunswick area, we will not hesitate to stay again when we return to the Maine coast.

Paradise in Maine

  • 5 of 5

This house and property are absolutely AMAZING. This is a beautiful and peaceful place for a vacation! The water views from almost every window was breathtaking; even the garage had a nice view. The house was wonderful, it had a very homey welcoming feel to it with very interesting art and antiques throughout. We felt like we were visiting a friend and not in a vacation house. The house is equipped with every modern convenience needed; chef's kitchen was spectacular. My husband and I, who are both foodies, had a wonderful time cooking; the viking range is just like the ones you find at top notch restaurants. We enjoyed, bike riding, walking out to the dock and sitting by the water, and had a great time when we took the canoe out for a little adventure. The owner left information on where to eat, shop, and most importantly, where to get lobsters! We thought that was super thoughtful gesture! Can't wait to go back to this magical place!!!

An annual retreat that we look forward to without fail

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Cundy's harbor many times, and have stayed in other houses but this is without a doubt the best place if you can get it! The location is incredible, with views that do not disapoint. We enjoy using the bikes to ride all over the island and into town, though walking is wonderful as well as sitting on the deck enjoying the sounds of the boats, birds and peace. The house has a fantastic gourmet kitchen with room to cook and eat and enjoy. Everything you need is there from the large lobster pot to baking pans if you are so inclined. This house has room for plenty to enjoy privacy and still get together for meals and communing by the fireplace. It has a TV but really, this is like our own luxury camp and we enjoy kicking back and enjoying nature. The wireless system lets you keep in touch with the outside as you need, so this has the best of it all. We will return next year without a doubt!

Beautiful Cundy's Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This home is beyond lovely, the amenities divine, and the surrounding scenery is so picturesque it only gets better with each turn you take. My husband and I stayed with our 6 yr old son, who loved walking down to the water to skip stones, sit on the dock, and cast some lines for fishing. It is a perfect spot for relaxing and taking in the quiet sounds of nature, enjoying the fresh seafood from right there in the water, and strolling around the neighboring areas. The home is quiet, spacious, well-kept with a classy sense of country style, and it's all only a short walk to general, local town shops and eateries and just a few minutes drive to fabulous local shopping, more great Maine eating, and all kinds of artisan boutiques and historic venues.

If I could move to this home on Cundy's Harbor I would in a heartbeat, though I completely understand the owner never wanting to give it up. The home is splendidly appointed and maintained with all conveniences imaginable. The views are outstanding, and I spent much of my time communing with nature in the garden, on the patio, and through the lens of my SLR -- the scenery does not disappoint and I have so many photos of exquisite sunsets I can't decide which to frame for my home. Just looking at them makes we want to go back sooner rather than later. We will certainly return, again and again!
