Why Emilia chose Castine
'We fell in love with Castine early on in their relationship. For years, we ran a non-profit that hosted an annual Kayak Regatta that began in Castine and meandered throughout stunning Penobscot Bay. We also spent their honeymoon in Castine, as it's a very romantic place.
When the opportunity to buy a property right next to our dearest friend came up, we jumped on it!'
What makes this cottage unique
With towering American Elms that shade historic, salt-air streets, it's no wonder that Downeast Magazine rated Castine one of 'Maine's 10 Prettiest Villages.'
For a small village off the beaten path, Castine has an incredible amount of amenities, from golf, to sailing, to amazing food and live music every night of the summer season!
LaTour Street is special because it's in the village of Castine (on the neck), but away from the bustle of Main Street. It's incredibly tranquil and quiet, but all the amenities of Castine are a stroll away. Also, the trailhead to the Witherle Woods, one of Castine's (and Maine's) treasures is at the top of the street.
A renovated, 1940's camp, this house is quirky, campy, and fun. The huge stone patio and screened porch provide great space for outdoor living and entertaining.
