Port Clyde Barn Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom Loft with Full Kitchen and Bath, Sleeps 4
The 'Sailloft' is located between the villages of Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor. The space is the upstairs of a converted 1880s barn, with high ceilings and skylights, and a nice southern facing deck looking out to the ocean.
The bedroom has a new Queen-sized bed and ample closet space. The living area has a large pull-out couch which sleeps 2, and is actually very comfortable. There is a Full Kitchen and Full Bathroom, and there is a T.V. with VCR, (Satellite), Stereo, and wireless Internet. Across the road is a right of way down to the water, and it is a great place to poke around, launch a Kayak, or just lounge on the rocks. Within 2 miles are 2 general stores, 7 restaurants, an ice cream shop, the ferry to Monhegan Island, Antique stores, Art Galleries, a beach.
Light houses.... Lots to do in the summer. Though the Barn is attached to our house, there is plenty of privacy, and all the usual amenities are available to our guests - BBQ grill, Hammock, Info, etc.
For Water Lovers: Many of our guests are Kayakers or Sailors. The 'Maine Island Trail ' passes within view of your deck. Many of the islands in the area are open to camping and landing for the day. We are water people ourselves and have all kinds of 'local knowledge' that we just might share. Launching is possible across the road from our place (high tide) , or at numerous spots around the peninsula. There are two excellent ramps within 2 miles for launching bigger boats. During mid to late summer the Striper fishing gets pretty good in the bays of the area as well. There are some great schooners in Rockland, Rockport and Camden for a nice day trip. There are also numerous fresh water ponds and lakes rivers and streams within a short drive.
For Nature Lovers: There are many short hikes around the peninsula that take you to some beautiful stretches of coastline. Commonly spotted are seals, porpoises, herons, various shore birds, bald eagles, osprey, occasionally puffins. This is a very rural area, with lots of deer, moose, coyotes, etc. Within a half hour there are longer hikes through the hills, many with amazing views of Penobscot Bay. Monhegan Island is covered with hiking trails, and the ferry leaves from Port Clyde. You can't find too many more beautiful stretches of coast than here..
