AFTERGLOW - THE BEAUTY OF SUNSET ON SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEW WITH PRIVATE BEACH

Friendship House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6, private sandy beach, high speed internet

Afterglow is nicknamed for its beautiful sunsets & reflections across the salt water. It is right on the ocean with a private beach & looking southwest towards Pemaquid. Spectacular ocean views and breathtaking sunsets are viewable from the entire house. A garden and a large grassy play area suitable for croquet or badminton extend right to the private beach. Trees offer a sense of privacy and quietness. Imagine waking up in the morning to the sweet smell of the ocean, watching lobstermen pulling up lobster traps through bedroom windows; sitting in the living room, dinning room or on the deck with delicious Maine seafood and watching serene evening sunsets. Exploring the rocky shoreline, sea kayaking, strolling on the public beach or joining the community house music gathering are a few activities characteristic of the immediate local area. Friendship affords good access to Camden, Boothbay, Pemaquid, Freeport or more distant attractions like Bar Harbor and northern lake regions.

Activities/Attractions in the Immediate Area: Swimming, canoeing or sea kayaking right from our private beach area. The grassy play ground beside the beach is suitable for croquet/badminton. Each August (first or second Saturday) there is a regatta called the Chowder Cup in Friendship. This is an event that anyone with a sailboat may race in. You can sit back under the shade on our property or right on our private beach enjoying the race. It is really a fun to watch all kind of boats with variety of different sails racing by. Friends and neighbors, small boats and big boats, experienced sailors and novices all go. They race against each other and also trying to get around all of the working lobster boats as well. The Community House and the Long Beach are within walking distance from Afterglow. In summer season, visitors, friends and neighbors gather together with music, variety of delicious food and games at the Community House. Long Beach is a beautiful public beach enjoyable for jogging and seeing the famous Friendship Sloops.

Activities/Attractions in 5 min. Driving Distance : Friendship Harbor is a beautiful working harbor. You can choose your own lobsters at the Harbor straight from the water they were living in. Nothing can be as fresh as this! Friendship Day is held on last Saturday of July each year. This year it is on July 31st and starts at 6:30 am with a 1-5K foot race followed with a pancake breakfast, parade, musical entertainment, children’s activities, contests, craft fair, softball games, fresh lobster rolls, clam chowder, Lobster Boat Races, food/bake sales, the famous Friendship auction and fireworks. The Friendship Museum located in the “Old Brick” schoolhouse offers the community a variety of events throughout the year on topics related to the history and traditions of Friendship. In the summer, it offers trips to places of scenic and historical interest and participates in Friendship’s annual community-wide celebration. Friendship Public Library is affiliated with the State of Maine library system and contains 18413 volumes in collection.

Activities/Attractions in 10 min. Driving Distance: The Waldo Theater in Waldoboro, designed by Benjamin Schlanger in 1930s with an Art Deco interior and a facade done in Greek revival style, is renowned for its wonderful acoustics and features a variety of performing arts, live entertainment and classic movies. The Old German Church, another historical masterpiece, is believed to be the oldest church in Maine. It was built in 1772 by a group of Reformed Lutherans on the eastern bank of the Medomak River with its square-benched pews, galleries and towering wineglass-shaped pulpit. Other attractions and activities in nearby towns are Bay Chamber Concerts in Camden which offers world class performances, Rockport Opera House, Farnsworth Museum, Lighthouse Museum, Owl's Head Transportation Museum and Lobster Festival in Rockland, Maine Aquarium and Boothbay Railway Museum in Boothbay, Pemaquid Lighthouse and Pemaquid Beach are the must places to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Ming and Dave-

I will never be able to thank you enough for the absolute privilege to stay at

your Friendship house. Once we were able to sit down Sunday morning and soak it

all in- we just couldn't believe how wonderful everything is.

The house is perfect for our family. From the size, beautiful antiques,

incredible book collection and the beach toys (thank you again) - it's just

wonderful. There isn't anything I would change!

The kitchen is great - it has everything we need and then some. I especially

enjoy using the older pans, and cook wear, etc as I have some of my moms and

aunts that I use at home.

The kids have enjoyed the yard and beach, have used the rocks as forts, and we

now have a family of crabs and snails...along with an extensive rock and shell

collection.

We have taken day trips and seen monkey c monkey do in Wiscasett, Mt Battie in

Camden, mini golf in Boothbay Harbor, been to the alpaca farm in Waldoboro which

we also went to for Waldoboro day, and will simply enjoy the beach all day

tomorrow-

I will hate to leave on Saturday and truly miss this wonderful house by the

water with the waves splashing onshore and the little duck family visiting each

morning and evening-

We will definitely want to return next year when Shane comes home from

deployment.



Again, thank you so much for letting our family stay at your Friendship home. It

really is an honor.

Sincerely,

Liza

THANKS! WE ENJOYED OUR VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We are a retired couple and came to visit Maine last summer. We stayed at “Afterglow” for a week and really enjoyed our vacation. The home is very comfortable and well equipped. We spent most of our time on the deck reading, relaxing, watching sailboats, sea kayakers passing by, duck family swimming around, local lobstermen working… The shaded large deck is a plus on a hot summer day! Afterglow is private, quiet, and serene, but never boring. A Dennis the Menace duckling excites the brood. An osprey may fly by. The spectacular sunsets give the evening time a special and charming moment. We also enjoyed sitting on the private beach observing the incoming water surge against the rocks, clear water, beautiful small rocks and sand. Thanks for allowing us to share such a beautiful location. We are coming back this summer.
