Harpswell House Rental Photos and Description
Waters edge home 4 Bdrs., 3 1/2 baths, 8 max./additional separate 1 Bdr. Apt.
Private waterfront location 50 feet from a scenic cove directly off Quahog Bay at the Northeastern part of Casco Bay. This beautifully renovated year-round home expanded and totally redesigned in 1989-1990 offers spacious, airy accommodations with 4 bedrooms & 3 1/2 baths. A long deck and pier over Card Cove afford sunny southwesterly exposures for maximum enjoyment at this quiet saltwater setting. Pretty hardwood, tile and carpeted floors, comfortably furnished, updated kitchen ('06), space to relax indoors and out. The tree bordered lawn & casual garden create a sense of retreat. Watch lobstermen head out the far side of the cove or return with their catch to the other side of this quiet point of land...buy fresh off the wharf just a walk across our narrow peninsula. A scattering of boats, including our 38 ft sloop which is available for a captained sail charter grace this protected cove. Bring your own canoe or kayak or we will help you reserve kayaks for delivery from SeaSprayKayaking, we have water access throughout the changing tide. Located between Brunswick and Bath, @ 10 mins. from US Rt.1 Cook's Corner, one mile off Rt. 24 heading towards Bailey Island...just off the beaten path yet very accessible.
Local knowledge: Having been both inland and coastal 'Mainers' since 1940's, we will provide area guides, maps, and share our knowledge to help you take advantage of the best of what our Coastal Maine offers!
One-bedroom apartment may be available depending on the reservation schedule. For a single person or couple, you might consider renting the one-bedroom apartment located over the garage portion of the house. Generally only the main portion of the house or the apartment would be rented at one time as we do prefer only a total of 8 persons in residence, however sometimes the rental may overlap a night. Very separate, perfect if bringing a nanny or relative who would like a 'private space'. Light , spacious with wonderful water views.
Rental rate varies based on rental period/length of stay.

Being year round residents of Harpswell and long time 'Mainers', we currently are B&B hosts at our home just a couple miles away, (check out our website www.CaptainsWatchBandB.com). We are nearby to welcome you to the house and share our information about what the area offers. My partner is a graduate of Bowdoin College, coming to Maine with his family when in High School (near Bangor), while I came as a summer person...enjoying our family 'camp' near the center of the State for all my summers while a young child and teenager...loving Maine, I came back to raise my family in the greater Portland area and now make Midcoast Maine my true home!
Donna purchased this house in 2005
