ENJOY FAMILY VACATION AT OCEAN VIEW RETREAT W/WIFI

Tenants Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck or your private bedroom balcony, watching the lobster boats off Clarke Island. Stroll down the quiet road to the nearby lobster dock or old quarry. Pull a good book from the well stocked shelves and find a cozy spot for a good read...

Our spacious home was completely renovated in 2009, with modern conveniences, little luxuries, and New England charm. Large windows bathe the interior with natural light and provide ocean views from nearly every room. Perfect for entertaining, the main living area features an open floor plan, leading to a large deck. Prepare your fresh lobster dinner in the all new, well equipped kitchen, or enjoy indoor or outdoor dining at one of the many nearby restaurants.

The upstairs features a large, open sitting area that includes a futon and doubles as extra sleeping space. Each bedroom is decorated with comfort and relaxation in mind. The king bedroom includes a futon below its large sunny windows. The queen bedroom features a sitting area and private balcony with spectacular views. Downstairs, the 3rd bedroom has both twin and full beds.

Before you climb into bed, have a long, luxurious soak in the antique reproduction slipper tub, while gazing at the stars. Or enjoy our custom walk-in shower with its unique river stone floor.

When the mood strikes, there is plenty to do! We are 10 min from Port Clyde, with dockside dining, kayaking, and the ferry to Monhegan Island. In 15 min you can be in Rockland, known for its unique shops, art galleries, movies, festivals, and the noted Farnsworth Museum. A few minutes further, and you are in scenic Camden.

I'm sure you will agree - our Maine vacation home is the perfect getaway!

ANOTHER AMAZING WEEK IN TENANTS HARBOR

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's second time staying at this wonderful home in Tenants Harbor. We wish we could stay forever. The house is perfect--everything is clean and new and lovely and the kitchen is very well-stocked. The house is in a great location--close enough to Rockland's restaurants and shops, but far enough away so you still feel like you are staying in the country. The owners are incredibly nice and easy to deal with. I can't say enough.

WONDERFUL MAINE RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and 14 year old grandson spent a week at this wonderful retreat in Maine. The house was very clean, spacious and very accommodating. Owner provided such things as laundry detergent, soaps, condiments and other items we usually have to buy. The kitchen was large and updated with lots of cabinets and work space. We ate most of our meals at the house, especially enjoyed steaming lobsters which were plentiful this month. This house could easily sleep eight people, so with four of us, we had plenty of space. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck. Owner was very helpful and prompt in repairing a commode that needed adjustment.

House is conveniently located so that we could go North to Rockland and Camden and South to Boothbay Harbor. The St. George Peninsula is lovely and we enjoyed the local restaurants and the kayaking in Port Clyde.

The only negative would be the poor cell phone reception. My Ipad worked fine. It was peaceful and nice to get away from our hectic schedules. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle and experiencing the magic of Maine's Mid Coast.

VERY COMFORTABLE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 (including a 3 and 4 year-old) had a wonderful 2-week stay at this home in Maine! My husband had high expectations for eating a lot of lobster, and he was not disappointed.He was able to easily prepare lobsters in the spacious kitchen equipped with 2 lobster pots. In fact, the house's caretaker, who lives nearby, is a lobsterman and he not only gave us a good deal on lobster, but also delivered them to the house straight from the dock!

While there is an industrial area down the road, the neighborhood is quiet overall, especially at night. There is even a cute "pocket library" and quaint Episcopal Chapel a stone's thrown from the house. All the neighbors we met were very nice. We also enjoyed swimming in the nearby quarry, and getting fresh drinking water at the spring at the head of Fort Point Trail (about a 5 minute drive north of the house).

We enjoyed many of the same sights as other reviewers already listed. I will add that Rockland Coastal Children's Museum was a very worthwhile trip -- our kids loved it! We made a day trip to Acadia National Park....it took us about 2 hours 1 way to get there, and we couldn't really do the park justice with such a limited amount of time. If you really want to see Acadia, plan to spend a night or two in adjacent Bar Harbor.

Another "lesson learned" is to take dramamine/wear seabands if you take the Puffin Cruise out of Port Clyde! We saw lots of puffins, seals, etc. but the boat was narrow and pitchy.

We especially appreciated the home's very reliable wi-fi and washer and dryer!

From the lobsters to the campfires in the backyard with smores to sleeping with the windows open to the kids running around in the very green, grassy yard and then taking bubble baths in the claw-foot tub, we loved our stay!

BEAUTIFUL HOME IN GREAT LOCATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We were four seniors traveling together to enjoy the cool weather in Maine as well as sightseeing local points of interest. We found the house to be certainly beyond our expectorations. This house is very nice. It has an open floor plan on the first level which would be great for a group. The sleeping accommodations were extremely nice and the house could easily sleep twelve people. Both the king and queen size beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen is very nice, although we didn’t cook a single meal, we found it to be well supplied (could use more glasses unless you prefer to bring in plastic). The only thing missing was a blender (we like making margaritas). We were impressed by the ample supply of nice white towels. The washer and dryer were very convenient and something that you don’t always find in a rental. It was a push for us to have our sheets and towels washed before leaving since our flight departed out of Manchester so had to get up very early on the day of departure to accommodate the owner’s request. The area is quiet and the house had a nice water view although at some distance. There was a warehouse of some type down the dirt road which is unsightly so would not recommend a walk in that direction. The rest of the area was beautiful! There is no telephone and reception for our cell phones was spotty. We enjoyed the WiFi capability. You could only get reception for one channel on the TV and it is not compatible for Apple TV so bring movies. We enjoyed eating at many of the local restaurant and found the food to be very good. Those restaurants included two visits to the Happy Clam, Dip Net, Cod End, The Café, Farmer’s restaurant, Rustica and Shaw’s Wharf. We also had a nice dinner at the Atlantica in Camden. The food was good, but overpriced. The restaurant had a great view. Our sightseeing included Monhegan Island, Camden, Cellardoor Winery, Owls Head Lighthouse, Birch Point Beach, Marshall Lighthouse, Colonial Pemaquid Historic Site, Ft. William Henry, Pemaquid Lighthouse, and The Old Rock Schoolhouse. Take an umbrella. Maine is green for a reason….it rains (only a couple of days while we were there and we enjoyed it). Our only wish was that we had stayed two weeks. One week was not long enough. Being from Oklahoma, we particularly enjoyed the water view and the cool weather. Loved sleeping with the windows open! This was a very nice place to stay!

BEAUTIFUL, RECENTLY-REBUILT HOME WITH WATER VIEWS, IN A PREMIER PART OF THE MAINE COAST.

  • 5 of 5
This is like a new home, with large multi-use spaces filled with natural light, decorated simply with great taste, with wood floors, quality fixtures and comfortable furniture. The kitchen on the first floor is superbly equipped with all new top-of-the-line appliances, which my wife, a great cook, really appreciated. The entire first floor, except for a bedroom and bath, is open space, for living, lounging and dining, all with views of the water. There's a TV/DVD and WiFi, but no phone. Bring a mobile phone. Upstairs is the master bedroom which is huge with a very comfortable king bed, and a second large bedroom with a queen bed. Both bedrooms upstairs have great water views, and are separated by a comfortable sitting/reading area with a sofa and futons. A huge beautiful bathroom serves the two upstairs bedrooms, featuring a claw-footed tub with a hand-held shower head attached, and a large walk-in shower with a pebbled floor. A new washer and dryer are also in the upstairs bathroom. Downstairs is a third, smaller bedroom with a single and double bed, but without water views. Adjacent to this bedroom is a small bathroom with a tub/shower, that also serves the downstairs living areas. Off the living areas is a deck with water views, grill, and table and chairs. We had 6 people in the home for about half of the 2-weeks we rented it, and it was very comfortable with that number. Tim, the owner, is very accommodating and makes sure the place is spotless. We sailed the Maine coast in our own sailboat for about 30 years, and Tenants Harbor was one of our favorite ports of call, visited annually. Now retired, we live next to the ocean at Seabrook Island, SC, south of Charleston. When we decided to revisit Maine, Tenants Harbor was our first choice, and we didn't regret it. Visit Port Clyde, take the ferry to Monhegan, and walk up to the museum. Go to Camden for lunch on the waterfront and drive to the top of the mountain behind the town for a great view of the bay. Visit the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland and see both sections that have Wyeth paintings. And visit the Transportation Museum in Owls Head, far more interesting than you might think. And get your lobsters and Maine crabmeat at the Cod End in Tenants Harbor. Ask for Susan, one of the Miller family who own it, and mention that Snow Dance sent you. It should get a smile from her. Have fun in a great house in a great place!

WONDERFUL HOUSE IN A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two children and I just spent a week at this wondeful house in Tenant's Harbor. The house is beautiful. Everything is new and tastefully decorated. The pictures don't do it justice. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the cooking equipment we needed, and everything was clean and lovely. While there were only four of us, the house could have easily accomdated another 6-8 people. The bedrooms were huge. The location was wonderful--just far enough off the beaten path so you feel like you're the only one around, but close enough to everything so that you don't have to drive far for restaurants, shopping, etc. Next time we can get up to Maine, we would love to stay here again!
