The prettiest town on the coast of Maine, with lots of history, as well as beach, golf and tennis.
This classic sea captain's home, built in 1823, has been lovingly cared for and renovated to accomodate up to ten people. You will be very comfortable here, whether sitting on the screened porch or sitting by the fire in the family room.
The house is one and a half blocks from the ocean and the town dock, near restaurants and shops. It has a large fenced yard, a modern eat-in kitchen, large bedrooms, formal living room and dining room, family room, and a wonderful screened porch.
Within two blocks are the golf course and the tennis courts, which welcome visitors for modest fees.
Castine is a special town for those who love history and the sea. Our historical society is open daily with fresh exhibits about the early sailing days on the Maine coast, as well as exhibits of famous writers and artists that made Castine the place to come for summer inspiration. You can get just about everywhere on foot or bike, leaving the car parked until you want to explore Acadia National Park and other inviting small towns on the coast. Kayak rental and tours are also available at the town dock, along with ice cream and lobster rolls!
Come here to smell the sea and relax in a beautiful setting that takes you back to simpler times.
Castine is a historic village with forts and embankments dating back to the 1600's. The town is oriented toward Penobscot Bay, some of the world's finest sailing waters. Just off Route One, south of Mount Desert and Acadia National Park, the village offers shops, restaurants, golf, tennis, yacht club, kayaking, forest preserves with ocean views, and a simple quiet retreat in the Down East tradition. Summer or fall, life in Castine is full of activities ranging from lectures at two local museums, jazz and classical concerts, church fairs, and walking tours. The town dock offers low cost, temporary mourings; boat tours are available, and the town beach is a place for all ages to relax and soak up some rays while swimming in the ocean or the salt water pool. Autumn offers wonderful crisp air and glorous colors for hiking in the local woods, trips to Acadia National Park, or cozy reading by a fire. Please see our link to Castine. Com for more information.
