Castine House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is the perfect home to experience the beauty of the Maine Coast in an idyllic and historic Maine town. This home is also wonderful for families!

This colonial home overlooking picturesque Castine harbor was built in 1790, and has been owned by the same family for the past 60 years. The home is well-maintained, with modernized kitchen and bathrooms, yet retains its colonial charm. The rooms are spacious, with high ceilings, moldings, and wainscoting. Two staircases access the second floor; one is a grand staircase with spindles and carvings.

There is a bedroom with 2 twin beds and a full bath on the first floor, perfect for those who don't like stairs.

The property is located on a half-acre lot, with an expansive lawn sloping toward the harbor and large elm trees. The home is ideally situated in the central historic district, only one minute's walking distance to Castine's dock where you can watch all the harbor activities while eating an ice cream cone or lobster roll. All restaurants, art galleries, shops, a grocery market,library, museums, churches, Maine Maritime Academy,golf course are within 1-5 minutes' walk.

BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT HOME IN CENTER OF CASTINE

  • 5 of 5
Eight of us rented this property for four nights during Memorial Day weekend 2013. The property did not disappoint. It is as advertised: It overlooks the main part of a small, charming, waterfront village on the coast of Maine.

The property: The home has all the necessary modern amenities while also maintaining its traditional charisma. The layout of the home is just wonderful. The space between the downstairs living room and the upstairs bedrooms allow peace and quiet for those wanting to go to bed early. The rooms downstairs are very roomy and comfortably seat large groups. The bedrooms are very large, which was perfect for our group as we needed extra space to all dress and prepare for a wedding. The bathrooms were spacious, clean and with plenty of hot water (and great shower water pressure!) for our group of 8. I would say that if your group includes young children, there may be some fragile items you would want to move out of reach before they are broken.

The village: The village was just what we hoped it would be. It is a quaint Maine town, right on the water. It was very quiet the weekend we were there as it was so early in the summer season. Within 2 blocks of the house are a breakfast/lunch café, a cute little lobster shack on the water, numerous restaurants and bars. Also, the waterfront is about 1 block from the front door of the house. It was cold and rainy the weekend we were there, but I would imagine later in the summer the waterfront would be alive and beautiful. The town is also perfect for running, cycling and hiking if you want to do a shorter outdoors activity without driving to Acadia.

The renters: The owners of the house and the rental manager were very helpful throughout our entire renting process. They were easy to contact and quick to reply via phone and email.

I would happily recommend this rental property to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful home in a small, quiet, quintessential Maine town, right on the coast.
