COVES EDGE SPACIOUS RETREAT, 50 FT. TO WATER. SUNNY, PRIVATE YET CONVENIENT

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.

About Donna

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

Why Donna chose Harpswell

Our sailboat is moored in the harbor and available for a charter with advance notice. We love this house and its location and do hope to move to the property when we retire from out Bed and Breakfast business is another few years!

What makes this house unique

Quiet, spacious rooms and views, within few feet of a protected cove (a part of the coast respected for its kayaking options and natural beauty, FMI see the local website www.HarpswellMaine.org )...this house is accessible to the entire Bath/Brunswick region as well as within a hour of Portland and Rockland with all points between an easy drive.

Please bring your own beach towels...we provide regular house linens (towels and bed linens) only. Boat: Captained 38 ft.sailboat may be available for charter, please inquire. While there is water at all times from the dock (our dinghy is kept on the dock to access our sailboat), guests are welcome to enjoy the dock at mid to high tide for swimming as there is a 9+ foot average tidal change. There are also steps to the flat shore frontage for gradual access to the water. The cove does not have heavy boat traffic. Kayaks can be rented for the week or for several days from a local outfitter or bring your own. TVs have basic cable, 19' in kitchen, large flat screen in 'great room' with DVD. House has excellent coverage for cell phones.
