Perched at the top of a delightful rural wildflower meadow, this waterfront cottage looks across Back River Cove to the unspoiled coastal woodland of the Medomak Valley Land Trust. Great spot for biking, kayaking and canoeing or just relax on our new private float! Interior is classically Maine, with pine floors and walls, picture window views and true cottage atmosphere. Large deck with picnic table, fully equipped kitchen, bath with shower stall, living/dining area, and two bedrooms; one with double bed and one with two twins (can be pushed together). Living area has pullout sofa, radio/tape player, TV/VCR, gas wood stove. Kitchen has microwave, gas stove, lobster pots, etc. Waldoboro is about 4 hours from Boston or 1-1/2 hours from Portland.
Henry and Cathy live in Miami FL. They have been traveling to Maine over the course of their 40 year marriage because as a child Henry vacationed in Maine with his parents. When our youngest daughter was 10 she went to the Audubon Camp in Bremen Maine. We had 10 days to comb the Mid Coast region and we knew that we needed to own a piece of paradise. So, the acquisition of the 2 cottages became a reality.
This piece of paradise fit all of our criteria. A place to come and relax with friends on a tranquil waterfront. Since there are two cottages about 75 yards away it gives privacy if the two are rented to different people and it also gives a chance to travel with friends or extended family. Cathy loved the uniqueness of the retro cottages that gave her the opportunity to easily enjoy decorating and turning them into Raspberry and Blueberry over the years. They love to kayak from the dock (although renters must bring their own but they can enjoy the row boat) around the cove and nearby islands. When the tide goes out mussel collecting becomes another adventure for that special indoor meal! . If you like to poke around and discover things Mid Coast Maine is the spot. We discover something new each year!!
Location, Location, Location!!! After exploring the area for over 6 years we have found that the being close to all Mid-Coast activities is wonderful. You are away from it all on the cove but traveling to Boothbay, Rockland, Camden or Outlet shopping in Freeport are all easy treks. It is even possible to visit Acadia National park for the day. If you are coming from far away the Portland airport is just over an hr drive and Boston/Logan is a 3 hour drive.
There are many attractions within a 30 minute drive. Some include a nature walk at the Audubon Center in Bremen, a ferry from New Harbor to Monhegan Island, a visit to Pemaquid Lighthouse in Bristol or the Jetty Light in Rockland. How about antiquing in the countryside or shopping in the nearby villages of Damariscotta, Round Pond or Friendship?
Drive 15 minutes more to Boothbay Harbor or take a tall ship day cruise from Camden. Birding, hiking and bicycle routes are nearby and sheltered water for kayaking and canoeing is a step off the beach. In Rockland visit the Farnsworth Museum and take in the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Visit the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath and Fort Edgecomb near picturesque Wiscasset. There are theater performances all summer in Waldoboro, Damariscotta and other nearby towns.
Attend the Wooden Boat Show, The Maine Blues Festival, The Lobster Festival or Boats and Harbor show in Rockland.
