Town of Harpswell: The town of Harpswell is made up of a series of long, skinny fingers of land reaching into the ocean, and dozens of islands in Casco Bay a total of 365 islands. This town has more than 200 miles of coast that you can explore, ranging from exposed ocean frontage to wide bays to calm, twisty inlets. When you drive around Harpswell, your breath will be taken away by the ocean views. Harpswell is one of the most beautiful parts of the Maine coast and because of its geography, it is not 'on the way' to anywhere, so it has remained unspoiled, despite being very close to Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, and Bath. If you want the real Maine, this is the place to come. There are great restaurants (especially seafood), swimming beaches, boat launches, walking trails through scenic woods with glacier-carved cliffs, world-class sea kayaking and boating, shopping, historical sightseeing, arts, music, and theater events, all in midcoast Maine
Have owned the property for over 50 years. Estes Lobster House which is next door, a 150 seat seafood family restaurant keeps my summers very busy.

Truly a hidden Treaure of Maine 'follow route 123 till you come to the sea', South Harpswell, MAINE
In the center of the Maine coast which allows you to day trip or relax by the coast and Casco Bay.
This house was spectacular! Not only was the house huge, clean, gorgeous and had more amenities than we could have even thought of, but the owner was delightful. It is the whole package for "the perfect escape" to Maine! I know that I am planning to return with my family and friends and this is where we will stay. You won't believe how tranquil this house is and I loved the scenery everywhere I turned! What a fabulous experience!
This house was incredible! The ocean view from all the windows and patio were amazing! The owner was so friendly, giving us great ideas on where to get food and have fun. The fire pit was so great in the fall weather. I would come back here in a heartbeat, I wish I could go every year with my friends and family!
We really enjoyed our stay at Larry's home. He was so helpful with things to do in the area and when we returned home after a full day of sightseeing there was a fabulous fire started to help us unwind. He was a great host and the home is outstanding! Very spacious and restful.
Six of us (2 couples, 2 singles) rented this house for a week and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The rooms are all generous, there was plenty of space for all of us to gather and enjoy each other's company. The great room offers a wonderful wall of windows that drew us like a magnet every day to watch the boats, tide changes and water fowl. Binoculars were thoughtfully placed to aid in our endeavors. The home owner is very accommodating and tended to our every need. If the opportunity presents itself, spend a little time with him; he has some great stories! He is close by when the restaurant next door is open but not intrusive in any way. Nor did the restaurant traffic affect us in the rental house at all. The fire pit was a wonderful way to relax after nightfall.
We highly recommend this rental - the house is clean and well-maintained. The location and layout are superb. Far enough away to be able to chill and relax, yet close enough to enjoy a leisurely drive up the coast to explore or travel into Portland.
Kitchen could use a few extra items but the essentials served us well and we adapted - we even hosted a dinner for 12 one night. Definitely get down to Dick's for FRESH lobster - make use of the lobster pots in the kitchen!!
enjoyed our stay Kitchen needed some items, tongs, cutting board, but stll better than most. Adequate stock of spices and pans. For grocery needs try the Vegetable Corner on route 123 about 5 miles orth of the house. A gourmet convenience store. Also Dick's Lobsters is within walking distance south on 123. For prepared food try Erica's about 4 miles away or the Garnet Trading company on 24. There is a lot going on in Brunswick, especailly on weekends. Try the Sea Dog Brewing company. House has three large bedrooms and easily handled six adults and two chldren. Easy drive to Portland and points of interest to the north along the coast but it is secluded as the photo shows, taking 30 minutes to get to Brunswick, the nearest town of size.
Spacious, clean, and great location. Hit up Estes Lobster House right next door for cheap, amazaing lobster or head down the street to Dicks Lobster dock and pick up your own. Make sure to drink a beer with Larry (house owner) and see his awesome collection of animal mounts (Buffalo, Muskox, Bear, Moose, etc.). The man is an American Hero with a sweet Maine rental.
