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

Incredible house with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

end of season

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great Place, Great Location, Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5
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.

We stayed for a week with our son, his wife and his 3 boys. Lots of room for everyone. Great views were a thrill to wake up to each morning. Who knew watching the tide come and go could be so fascinating. Larry, the owner, was very helpful and easy to deal with. His restaurant is right next door & I was a little worried that the parking lot being so close would be an issue, but I hardly noticed.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Loved this home! Great setting on the water, beautiful surroundings, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. This home has a great open layout with large windows, water on both sides, airy and light feeling. Decor is a dream of hunters and lobster lovers! Large bedrooms, each with it's own bath is excellent. Each bedroom with it's own view of the water and a balcony also great! Kitchen is spacious, equipped with all your needs. On-site owner very helpful, made sure everything was in order and looked out for our comfort. Harpswell is a great quiet neighborhood, great for walking, jogging, clam digging, and lobster eating! Overall, a great vacation spot! Will return for sure.

A Fantastic Getaway!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property far exceeded our expectations. The home is absolutely stunning in every way. The location is incredible with ocean views on both sides of the home. The design of this home with large windows throughout provides for magnificent views, especially at sunrise and sunset. The furnishings in the home are very comfortable which gives one the feeling of being right at home.

This location in South Harpswell is ideal for an enjoyable stay with peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The owner was very accommodating and helpful. One unexpected benefit was the proximity of the owner's Seafood Restaurant, only steps away. We definitely plan to return to this wonderful property and would highly recommend to all who want to escape and relax at this beautiful location..
