STUNNING WATERFRONT MAINE COTTAGE

Eliot House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Quintessential Maine home featured as cover story in Accent Magazine (See Cover Photo). Very private situated on the Piscataqua River with access to the Atlantic Ocean. Dock and mooring provide use of kayaks, canoe, and excellent swimming. Lie in the hammock and enjoy stunning sunsets every afternoon. Home is located directly on the Piscataqua River, about five miles from Portsmouth, NH where the Piscataqua joins the ocean. Boats can go directly to the ocean and use of a mooring at the house is included. The river is tidal and makes for very good swimming (the water is generally 10 to 15 degrees warmer than at the ocean) with safe, gentle current anytime between half and full high tide. This part of the river is wide and wooded with few houses for a very private feel in completely natural surroundings.

Home features 1 bedroom with a queen size bed and a den and bath on the first floor. Master Suite with king size bed with bath and second bedroom with a king size bed that converts to twins on the second floor. Master suite includes gas woodstove, French doors to balcony overlooking the water, master bath includes large spa tub. Kitchen/dining/family room with stone fireplace and French doors to deck and screened porch. Living room with grand piano and built in bookcases.

Kitchen offers 6 burner cook top, stainless refrigerator and walk in pantry. Property surrounded by gardens and many opportunities for quiet walks. Nearby Portsmouth and Portland offer tons of cultural events, restaurants and shopping.

Visit our site at vistamagicavacationrentals for additional photos and information. PLEASE CONTACT US BY EMAIL ONLY AS WE ARE OFTEN NOT ABLE TO BE REACHED BY PHONE! (I am sorry but we are not set up to host weddings, family reunions or other large groups of people).

There is a tremendous amount of wildlife viewing directly from the house including bald eagle, red tail hawk, cormorant, fox, deer, wild turkey, and seal. Excellent fishing for Striped Sea Bass and Bluefish, directly in front of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Maine and were delighted by your wonderful home and tranquil setting. The home was well equipped and had a very welcoming atmosphere. The scenery was beautiful and the views from the master bedroom spectacular. It was really conducive to sharing time with our family. I couldn't have picked a better setting. The pictures on the website were lovely but the experience of being on the river in a very private setting and lovely accomodations was even better. We especially enjoyed our dinners on the screened in porch. We will definitely recommend your home to our friends and family and hope to get back to Maine for another vacation. Carol

A Wonderful Week by the Water in Maine

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house! Our group was made up of people between 7 and 80 years of age and everyone had a great time. The site was enchanting: the river, the landscaping, the sunsets, the hammock! The deck and patio area is a great place to sip a second cup of coffee in the morning or for cocktail hour when everyone gathers for the evening. The pool table served well while the screened porch area was used for everything from a fancy birthday meal to challenging scrabble matches. Our long days were rewarded with exceptionally comfortable beds. The house itself is beautiful with just a touch of whimsy and charming art pieces throughout. We definitely want to return someday!

Serenity

  • 5 of 5
I have vacationed in Maine many times but this was my first stay in Eliot. What a beautiful area for relaxing. The house is spectacular and very comfortable. The views are beautiful from all around the home. We enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets from the dock and the deck. It is also a great area for biking and kayaking to take in the local sights at a slower speed. Portsmouth is a short drive when you want nightlife but we always were glad to come back. We hope to return soon.

The home we vacationed in for 7 days was fabulous, breathtaking view of the lake and sunsets

  • 5 of 5
The home was exactly as detailed, spacious rooms, comfortable and quiet area, screened in porch was wonderful to have meals in, and watch the sun go down. The home has a nice library of old movies, sit back with popcorn and enjoy. Nice for boating and easy access to all areas, ie, York Zoo, Kittery shops, Wells Antique shops, Wild Willies Hamburgers to die for in York. Great antique shops along Route 1. Kennebunkport- wonderful place to walk around. The caretaker was very pleasant and hospitable. Great house to vacation. Property well groomed. Owners were easy to work with. Plenty of things to do while on vacation here. Had a great time and would come back. Beautiful area, what a great place to come. It was hard to leave.

blissful setting

  • 5 of 5
As we prepare to leave your special home I carry with me so many wonderful memories and such a sense of peace. I will miss hearing the roosters in the morning and all the other sounds of nature that add to the serenity of this magical place. The tides, the morning and evening skies, and the changing light all make this a truly wondrous setting. Your sense of elegance and whimsy create a feeling of relaxation immediately. Usually it takes several days for me to shift into vacation mode but as soon as I walked into your home it was instantaneous. Every room has its own character with loving attention to detail. Your sense of color and design is a feast for the eyes.
