Friendship House Rental Photos and Description
Oceanfront Guesthouse with private pier, boats, antiques, Orientals. 3BR/2BA
Immaculate, year-round 3 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront home on 7 1/2 acres with private pier overlooking Muscongus Bay & islands. Antiques, Orientals, cathedral ceilings, gleaming wide pine floors & skylights, along with top of the line mattresses & appliances including single jacuzzi tub provide a very comfortable setting for an unforgettable vacation. Wake to the nostalgic scent of fresh salt air & the plaintiff call of seagulls. Watch the occasional local fisherman check his pots for lobster from the elevated sun deck, spot the family of seals on Haystack Island or see the resident Ospreys nesting with the guest house binoculars. Use the two sit on top kayaks, two sit in kayaks, tandem kayak, (a total of 5 !) or take the rowboat provided to explore the endless coves and islands. Take advantage of our large take one/leave one library to read on the deck which is complete with patio furniture, gas grille and magnificent views. Later enjoy a cocktail on your private pier as the ducks and seals swim & the tides change below.
And that's just the beginning... you haven't even left the property!
The downstairs living room has beautiful & comfortable seating, a large picture window & the TV/VCR/DVD. Off this is the double bedroom with private bath. Upstairs the great room has a mix of antique & new furnishings where you can enjoy the cd stereo & the panoramic view of boats, islands and spruce trees thru huge French doors that lead out to the 2nd floor deck. The kitchen is large, bright & well equipped. The master bedroom has a stately queen antique four-poster bed & the main bath has the jacuzzi tub, separate shower & skylights. Upstairs the protected loft holds two comfortable twin beds. It is a truly beautiful & restorative vacation home. Although there are beds for more people, we are limiting the number of Guests to a very strict 4 people. This way you can choose which of the bedrooms would best suit you, and will assure you of many years of a wonderful vacation in a well appointed and carefully kept home
The nearby Farnsworth Museum is famous for its collection by American artists, & the Transportation Museum has the first Ford Mustang ever built!
We are only 30 minutes from Camden and Rockland to the North and 30 minutes south will bring you to Damariscotta, Pemaquid and the Boothbay region. Fine dining, world class golf, museums, festivals, concerts, the opera house, schooner trips, hiking, biking, & fabulous antiquing are all only a decision away. Waldoboro itself has an active summer playhouse/theatre and the local pier in Friendship is only minutes away where you can buy succulent lobster fresh off the boat. Or on vacation, why not treat yourself to an organized clambake on the beach where all the work & cleanup is done for you! We have compiled an extensive list of activities and ideas, complete with phone numbers, etc. that is available at the guest house. Included in your rental is the use of 5 separate kayaks, (2 sit-on-top, 1 tandem, 2 regular) and a 14 ft. aluminum boat

Guestbook comments from the owner
Beautiful Home. Exceptional view. Terrific location. We had a wonderful time laying by the water reading, thinking about nothing and everything, kayaking to several islands. Enjoyed meeting the rare domestic animals at Kelmscott Farms in Lincolnville, went on a magical sail with Capt. Steve on the Friendship Sloop, Surprise, basked in the sun at Popham Beach...one of the best in New England, played with the rocks and starfish at Camden Hill State Park and walked around Camden - nice bookstore, hiked around Monhegan Island- watched a white baby seal frolick- the cinnamon ice cream was a tasty treat. Which brings us to dining- Pine Cone Cafe- very good food and atmosphere, and Peter Ott's in Camden- the best pesto and pasta primavera and the raspberry pie was a slice of heaven. Needless to say, this vacation goes down as one of the best. Thank you.
