Castine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bath, sleeps 8, sunny patio, screened porch

This vintage 1940's camp offers a location that is central to the charming Castine village, the bustling waterfront, and the trailhead to the stunning Witherle Woods.

Stroll or bike to the village where live jazz, fresh-baked goodies, and towering elms await, or rock your worries away on the large screen porch, where the only thing that breaks the quiet is the occasional chime of bell buoys in the bay. The south-facing, spacious flagstone patio is perfect for sunbathing or dining and looks toward a field. Come unwind in this simple, cozy-feeling, yet spacious, fully furnished camp and enjoy the beauty and rich history of Castine.

About Emilia

Aaron and Emilia are artists and adventurers who live in Gorham, Maine. Emilia has been a touring, performing artist (singer/songwriter) for the past decade. Aaron co-founded Rippleffect, a non-profit that provides learning adventures in living classrooms to Maine youth.

Emilia purchased this cottage in 2007

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.

"Ahhhhhhh, finally". Those were my first words- I am not kidding.

We are two stressed Boston junior executives with two Tazmanian devils for children. We needed North and we needed it NOW!
Downeast Maine had been on our bucket list forever!!

Emilia was a delight, we got lucky someone had cancelled last minute and we were IN. The cottage was perfect: Funky, lots of character, comfy, and great sunlight...! It was situated on a hill and abutted a wilderness preserve- ideal for morning hikes or sunset strolls with chilled glass o wine!! Big yard bonus for the brats. The bedrooms were neat, clean, devoid of silly coastal posters. Bathrooms tidy, no frills.

The kitchen was well prepared, dining table gorgeous rustic, great for large dinner party.. Wrap around screened in porch proved helpful on rainy day- likewise ping-pong table in garage. (Proving: There is a God.)

Castine is a great town (we soon discovered) but it can be busy in July, Fortunately Emilia's cottage is on the quiet side of town, on a forgotten lane, really quiet! Except for the cacophony of sound that is the birdsong in the early morning. Sometimes too early.

Yes, nature at last, yet minutes (walking) to in-town and all the services you'd ever want: groceries, fuel, beer, baked goods, (Bah's Bakehouse is a MUST every day), restaurants,(Stella's or Pentagoet Inn will impress) etc. And head the other direction for beaches and lighthouse!

Run don't Walk, to book this place. It is a lovely, simple get away for those on a tight budget and stressed out from work it will be the best money spent if retreat and relax is in order. (BTW: we discovered besides being a gracious hostess Emilia is an accomplished singer songwriter too! Her husband a famous expedition sea- kayaker!!).
