LOVELY OCEANFRONT HOUSE WITH STUNNING SEA VIEWS

Tenants Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The house is named the Carousel because it is an octagon, designed with rooms arranged around about a massive central post. It is a cozy, two bedroom house on a rocky bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The house has a spectacular view of Metinic, Two Bush and Matinicus Islands. It sits on a quiet dead-end road near the village of Tenants Harbor and in the small community of Harts Neck. Tenants Harbor is about 12 miles from Rockland, an interesting town with museums and galleries.

The layout consists, moving counter-clockwise, of the front hall, 2 bedrooms, each with a newly renovated private bathroom, a welcoming living room/dining room facing the ocean and a well equipped, updated kitchen with gas stove and dishwasher. Upstairs, there is a loft with two beds that overlooks the living room. A porch off the dining room overlooks the cliffs and is the perfect place to relax or to entertain. Upstairs, there is an open loft with skylights, ideal as a studio or third bedroom. There is heat from an airtight Reliant wood stove, a gas monitor and baseboard electric units. For rainy days there is also also cable TV and a DVD player.

The ocean is endlessly fascinating! With a clear northwester, you can see hundreds of islands, yachts and lobsterman pulling their traps, while in the fog, you are enclosed in your private world. There are many wonderful places to walk or ride bikes, and renters have the use of a private dock and tennis court nearby. The town also offers warm water quarry swimming and the opportunity for boating of all kinds. The Rockland area has many terrific restaurants, galleries and museums.

Families looking for day camp for their children could take advantage of the excellent Blueberry Cove camp down the street.

An added note: no one should visit without taking the day trip out to Monhegan!

We spent a lovely week at the carousel cottage -- loving the view, the sound of the waves on the rocks below and enjoying cooking in the newly remodeled kitchen. We highly recommend the house to families, or two couples. You won't want to leave once you get there!

Amazing location. Quiet and beautiful view of the coast and sea. Excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities. Clean and well managed. All details were expertly and pleasantly handled. Photos of property give very good view of the actual facility.

Beautiful house, gorgeous location and stunning views

  • 5 of 5
We had a charming 5 night stay in this beautiful house, with all the intentions of doing so many things- however, we found it hard to tear ourselves away from the property- its stunning views and peaceful location drew us in and we found it hard to leave! We did visit Arcadia Park, which was amazing but our favorite was the day trip to Monhegan Island- a must do! We are hoping to come back next year (and the year after that!)

Charming place, newly renovated

  • 5 of 5
You won't find a more charming place along the coast of Maine. The whole front of the house facing the ocean is windows. You fall asleep at night listening to the waves crashing on the rocks below. The kitchen has been newly renovated and is bright and cheery. The bathrooms have just been updated and are great. There is so much to do in Tenant's Harbor or, if you like, nothing at all. We had a rainstorm one evening with the most spectacular double rainbow over the ocean. This place is quiet and peaceful. There are books and movies; the internet access is great; and the climb down to the rocks is fun. You would do well to give this place a second and third look. We love it.

Sixth Time Renting

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have repeatedly rented the Carousel as a get-away from the stresses of life. I have even written a book over those years. So that's the way we use it, but one could hike the trails, rent a kayak, take a ferry to Monhegan.
This year there were many improvements. The kitchen was enlarged and updated. It was fun to cook and my guess is that it's a 5 star kitchen even a five star chef would love.
The bathrooms had lovely makeovers and, for us, the most important addition was a nice heater which takes the chill of off-season visits.
The location is perfectly situated up high right on the ocean. My favorite part is going to sleep to the sound of the waves, and awaking to them in a different rhythm, a different tide.
My husband loves good restaurants and we particularly like the Dip Net in Port Clyde, Slip Way in Thomaston and Primo in Rockland.
We would, of course, recommend you come visit.

Wonderful, Even With A Nor'Easter

Wonderful, Even With A Nor'Easter
  • 5 of 5
We had 8 nights in this charming octagonal house, with gorgeous views from its great room/dining room, and the sound of crashing surf even in our bedroom. It was cold outside, but the wood stove and additional space heaters kept us comfortable. We were thrilled to find such a site with only a couple of days notice, and appreciate the owners accommodating us when nearly all else in Maine had closed down for the season. Tenants Harbor is a non-tourist town, with most of the action occurring at the General Store this time of the year. Our bed and linens were comfortable, the kitchen functional, and overall effect was the best of coastal Maine. We hope to return during warm weather, spend more time on the spacious deck, and share the summer experience with our grandchildren.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your note. We are glad you could visit and do hope you come back in the more busy summer months, where you can eat, window shop and visit art galleries in nearby Rockland and Camden and enjoy a meal by the sea in Port Clyde or other seaside locales. Other exciting news is that we have renovated our kitchen and bathrooms over the winter months. Best. Jenifer.
