SPACIOUS MID COAST MAINE WATERFRONT HOME

Wiscasset House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

“The Prettiest Village in Maine' is where this spacious, comfortable home is located along the shore of the Sheepscot River in Wiscasset, the gateway to the Mid-Coast Region. Your family can make themselves right at home in its 3500 sq. ft. of living space, located on a quiet, dead end road.

The master bedroom includes a comfortable king size bed, a sitting area, large walk in closet, and a view of the river. An inviting 2 person jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom has a view of the river as well. There are 4 queen bedrooms, 3 with a water view, and 3 twin beds. Enjoy watching your favorite shows on the 60' smart hdtv with surround sound. High speed wireless internet and a desk is available for your laptop. Board games, books, and toys for adults and the kids.

Our home is conveniently located just 3 miles from scenic Route 1, and just 5 miles to Shaw's Supermarket. The village of Wiscasset is home to many antique shops, small shops, and eateries. A popular stop for many is Red’s Eats, known for its succulent lobster rolls! The Maine Eastern Railroad runs through Wiscasset, and can take you to Rockland where special events are held each year such as the Maine Lobster Festival, and the North Atlantic Blues Festival. Boothbay Harbor will hosts the Annual Windjammer days in June and includes two days of family fun, street parade, antique boat parade, and fireworks over the Harbor. Owls Head Transportation Museum offers many events throughout the summer. Well known Moody's Diner in Waldoboro offers homemade Maine cooking, and just a 20 minute drive from the house. Bath is home to the Maine Maritime Museum, a popular destination for those interested in Maine's maritime heritage and culture. Camden, Pemaquid, Damariscotta and many other must see coastal towns are all under an hours drive. Flights into Portland Maine, Manchester New Hampshire, and Logan airport in Boston, offer convenient access to Maine’s rugged coastline, beaches, lighthouses, museums, state parks, or just relaxing in Maine’s casual atmosphere.

A peaceful, relaxing place, yet close to all that the Mid-Coast has to offer.

My husband and I built this Sheepscot Shores home in 2001. I grew up in Wiscasset and my husband, who grew up in New Jersey, loved this area and we decided this waterfront property would be a perfect fit to build a home. We have 5 children and we all have spent many holidays and celebrations at the home, along with our extended family.

Sandra purchased this house in 2001

I have always loved being by the water and this property is located on a dead end road, is very quiet, and the view is beautiful no matter what time of year it is. It is close to coastal Route 1, a popular road for traveling along the coast, and it's easy commutes to all that the Mid Coast has to offer. It's also an easy drive to some of Maine's lakes and beaches.

The house is 75 feet from the water's edge, and there is an easy walkway getting down to the water. The large deck, located on the waterfront side of house, is great for sitting outside and taking in the view. A grocery store is only a 5 minute drive and less than that to the village of Wiscasset where many small shops are located, including antiques. Red's Eat's, a very popular and nationally known eatery, is located in the village as well. They offer the best lobster and crab rolls in Maine!

A PERFECT WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
After over a month of painstakingly checking out rental homes in the mid-coast Maine region last spring, I decided on this one for our surprise family celebration of my husband's 60th birthday in September. The minute we walked in the house, everyone knew I had made the right choice! Not only was the house in a great location for traveling either north or south for a day's exploration (which we did - the Windjammer Festival in Camden; Pemaquid Lighthouse; a schooner ride in Boothbay; kayaking in East Bath; LL Bean; a wonderful day in Kennebunkport, just to name a few!), the house was also perfect for just staying home and relaxing (which we also did - quiet moments in the chair by the water, grilling out on the deck, boiling lobsters at $3.99/lb - WOW!, and putting together jigsaw puzzles on the coffee table to the sounds of a crackling fireplace at night). We found everything immaculate and loved the fact that there were so many little extras in the house that Sandra had provided (the cooler to get lobsters from the market; the amazing spice drawer in the kitchen; the stocked laundry room, etc.). You just don't see that in many other rental homes - you have to start from scratch when you arrive and end up with a lot of extra expenses. Our family of 10 loved the three-floor opportunity to be together (or to not be!), the incredible back deck (and view), and the warm and inviting way the house was decorated. Did I mention the wonderful master bedroom and bath? WOW! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We made a memory that will last the rest of our lives!

CHARMING AND SPACIOUS-BETTER THAN EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 12 adult women sharing this home and everyone was very pleased. That is not an easy achievement and hats off to Sandra who has created a beautiful space for gatherings. Everything is as written and the actual space is well laid out that you immediately love the home. The view is amazing and we even used the canoe, which is a big deal for the city slicker gals. Having 3 levels, many beds, closets, dressers and bathrooms gave us alot of elbow room to stretch. We came together in the kitchen/dining room area for huge meals and alot of chaotic talking, plus the large, comfortable living room with fireplace made for fun late night chats. Had a lobsta' feast, a birthday party and many meals with incessant eating and laughing. I would recommend this home to families with kids or adult groups, as everyone is in a real bed, no futons or bunks. Also a real wood burning fireplace and central heat is a big plus. Just one hour from Portland and even closer to Augusta, this location is ideal for north or south trips along U.S. Hwy.1. There is alot to do and towns are close by for even more shopping and sightseeing. Sandra has done a great job at thinking about the details that make people feel comfortable when they are away from home. Had perfect weather and even more perfect memories staying at such a lovely home. Want to come back and stay longer next time.

VACATION IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
The house was accurately listed and well maintained. The owner provided all details and easy to communicate with. I would recommend this property for family gatherings as it was very spacious. Wiscasset is well located for coastal dining and shopping and we would recommend this property to friends and family.

REALLY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week at this very comfortable house. The house was very spacious and had more than enough space for the eight of us. The location is very good for seeing mid-coast Maine attractions: Boothbay Harbor, Rockland, Freeport, and charming Wiscasset.
