'SEAS THE DAY' - SPECTACULAR NEW OCEAN FRONT RETREAT

Pemaquid Point House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

'Seas The Day' is a TOTALLY remodeled Oceanfront property facing John's Bay and the open Atlantic ocean. As experienced VRBO renters we acquired and remodeled this classic Maine Saltbox with VRBO renters in mind. No expense has been spared on this complete ground up inside/out renovation. Our lobsterman delivers fresh to the deck!!!!!

Upon entering you will be treated to our expansive 'wall of glass' water view. Sitting on the western side of Pemaquid Point you will look out across John's Bay at Miles Tower and over 1000 lobster pot buoys which are harvested in the morning. Keep an eye out for seals, dolphins and minke whales off shore. Evening brings spectacular western sunsets. Looking southwest you will see the open ocean and islands named Threads of Life, Thumb Cap and Christmas Cove. Enjoy all this from the 33 X 12 deck, featuring a 12 X 12 motorized retractable awning, gas grill, wall lanterns, Adirondack chairs and stereo speakers.

Take 4 steps down to the new lawn and walk just 40 feet to the shore. Located here you will find a big fire pit for cool night gatherings. Inside the open floor plan was designed for entertaining and easy vacation living. The kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, a glass front wood burning stove, walk in pantry and spectacular water views. We have added a breakfast table and chairs. The living and dining area feature James Harrill art with matching nautical decor, Sony flat screen TV, stereo sound system and a beautiful stone fireplace. The master bedroom features 'the room with a view' where you will sit up in bed and see the water everywhere. This bedroom also features a king size bed, walk in closet and flat screen TV. On the main floor is a large bathroom with a bath tub/shower and a separate laundry. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms. One has a queen bed and the other has a double and a single bed. The bathroom features a large glass shower, pedestal sink and a claw foot antique tub. Every room has large ceiling fans and the original gorgeous, wide, Maine Pumpkin Pine floors. Every appliance is new as are the electrical and plumbing fixtures. Recessed lights abound and every light switch has a dimmer allowing you to set the mood.

The home is located in upscale Seawood Park featuring safety for all and beautiful walking paths. The property is surrounded with tall fir trees and abundant wild roses, raspberries and lilacs to insure privacy while you enjoy over 1200 feet of oceanfront. Near the flag pole you will find lobster traps and buoys that have washed up on our shore. We are very near Shaw's restaurant where they filmed 'Message In A Bottle'. Here you can buy lobster right off the boat. The famous Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is just down the road. Make plans now to visit this beautiful piece of paradise and make beautiful memories for you and yours. Cleaning fees, linens and firewood are included. We are the house with the red front doors! Be sure to scroll all the way down to see all the great photos. More master bedroom and kitchen furniture has been added since photos were taken. In mid July 2013 we added a great hammock on the waters edge that our clients love! Our week runs Sunday to Sunday, due to clients request, beginning in 2014.

All short term rentals include cleaning, linen, towel service and firewood.

About The Owner

Although we make our home in Nashville Tennessee, we have rented 2-3 times a year through VRBO for the past 8 years. Through our wonderful experiences we learned what we needed, wanted and really appreciated in a vacation rental. In 2008 we decided to cross over to 'the other side' and become owners. We looked at southeast beach properties and Rocky Mountain ski resorts. In the end we fell in love with the breathtaking coast of Pemaquid Point Penninsula in New Harbor Maine. We tell our friends and family 'our vacation home is up in the middle of the woods on the ocean in Maine'. It truly is the best of all worlds. All the benefits of the ocean (can you say lobster?!) without the stifling heat. As an avid runner Bon loves logging the miles on the quiet tree lined roads while Bill fishes for striper and blues off the rocky outcropping on the beach. The kids explore the bay and outer islands by kayak looking for seals. We all love walking down to the lighthouse and having breakfast in the restaurant while watching the crashing surf. And of course there are the morning coffee, and evening cocktail walks along the groomed shore path. So calming, so peaceful, so absolutely wonderful. We have done absolutely everything possible to make our home exactly how we would want a rental for our family. To top it off, Mark and Lori Chesebro, owners of the Chesebro Gallery, serve as our caretakers providing a warm welcome and local information and color.

Great view of sunsets over Johns Bay

  • 5 of 5
We have rented various vacation homes in the Pemaquid area for 10 years. This is one of the best, with direct access to the water and unobstructed views. One of the few we would want to book again.

Best Place On Earth To Unwind

  • 5 of 5
Where to begin? Family friends had asked us to join them on vacation in what they called the best place on earth to unwind. How could that be….well we saw firsthand what they were referring to. Seas the Day was by far the most breathe taking, peaceful, place of serenity that we have visited yet. From the sunrise to the exceptional view of the sunset we were at peace. This home is so welcoming; the home owners have done vacationers a favor by allowing them to experience a slice of their heaven. To be able to enjoy sleeping with the sound of waves crashing, walking down to the water’s edge to see nature first hand, fresh cooked lobsters delivered to the door, Dot’s fresh baked pies daily, resting in the hammock for hours watching the ocean view or just to venture through the local towns to enjoy all that they have to offer…..the list is endless. My husband and I now know what they meant by Best Place on earth to Unwind and we will surely be back next year to enjoy this with them again! Bill & Bonnie have opened their home for others to enjoy, we thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. Diane has been a great client for 4 years and we are delighted she invited your husband and you to share the experience. Diane and her adult sons embrace the "Seas The Day" experience, many improvements we do with her in mind. Come back next year and enjoy the new hot tub and central air conditioning we are adding after the season. Best, B&B

An incredible vacation property.

  • 5 of 5
The rental property is everything that the owner claims it to be. The views are picturesque and the house is well organized and clean. What truly sets this rental apart is the effort the owners put in to making your stay an experience. It is obvious that they enjoy their property and want you to experience the same. For example, they provide a detailed list of places to go and people to see. Follow up on their recommendations or simply sit on the back deck by the sea. Either way, your time spent at Pemaquid Point will become a cherished memory.

One word..........PICTURESQUE!!

  • 5 of 5
This was by FAR the most relaxing, not to mention GORGEOUS, vacation we have ever taken barring none!!!! From the moment we opened the door, we could see the owner had paid attention to every little detail. The house was spotless, the bedrooms were comfortable and roomy and the living and dining areas had everything you needed or wanted. It was exactly as pictured and described. The sound of the gentle waves lapping at the rocks below lulled us to sleep every night and the sunsets in the afternoon were just spectacular! There was plenty of wood for the fire pit each night, and the sound system on the deck was the cherry on top of an already picture-perfect house. The owner was very attentive and had given us suggestions of places to go and things to do. In fact, one person he suggested we visit turned into someone we ended up forging a friendship with. He also gave us the name of someone that would deliver steamed lobsters for less than the price of hot dogs and it was TRUE! I personally ate 27 lobsters during that week! We did most all of what the owner had suggested and it made for a really great time. There is SO much to do and see here but THIS house really was the key to our perfect vacation ....and was where we spent the majority of the time because it was just so beautiful and serene that you didnt want to leave. After all, if you could eat all the lobsters you want for less than a hot dog and at the same time be on the ocean with a drink in your hand, music playing on the back deck as you watch the sun slowly sink behind the horizon, AND with family and friends at your side......why WOULD you leave the house?? We will MOST DEFINITELY be renting this home again and will be counting the days. It doesn't get better than this!!!!!! Thank you Bill and Bon for letting us share your dream spot for that week!

Takes Your Breath Away

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed 2011, 2012, 2013 & yes 2014!!
Seas The Day was referred to us by a relative when we were looking to return to Maine once again. We had been going to Maine for more than 20 years and always stayed in cabin type homes. When we went on the website for Seas the Day, we were blown away. We have never stayed directly on the ocean as this house is. Our first night there was a breath taking sunset. From that moment on we have continue to return. Bill and Bonnie have been extremely accommodating and have always been there to help us make the most out of our stay and make sure that everything is satisfactory. They have recommended places to visit and places to eat. Yes the “Cupboard” does have the best sticky buns ever and a very affordable breakfast. There is nothing like having fresh lobster delivered to your door and yet this year was made even better by having them cooked & delivered to the door. Where can you stay that offers such a wonderful amenity? We have gone down the rocks every day and collected sea glass, walked the path, chilled in the hammock, watched the lobster boats and enjoyed the most beautiful sunsets. Seas The Day is an exquisite home that the owners have taken great pride and offered to others to have a piece of paradise. We continue to return with our 2 older boys based on the beauty of this house, the scenic views and peaceful surroundings. If you are looking for the ultimate relaxing vacation home and attentive owners; look no further ~ Seas The Day is worth every penny!

I expected it to be larger! Pictures where crafted

  • 2 of 5
There was a reason they did not show bedrooms upstairs. ridiculously over priced. House across the street with 4 bedrooms was less expensive. Upstairs bedroom's only have one window, warm and closed in. It is nothing more than a dormer. The description of three bedrooms is over stated! When you pay TOP DOLLAR you expect much more.

Owner's Response: Obviously this reviewer doesn't agree with the rest of the reviews below. Are the upstairs bedrooms small, yes. However one is large enough for a queen bed, dresser, 2 night stands and bench. The other has a double bed, twin bed, night stand and dresser. However this winter we are planning to "rip off the top floor" and "blow it out" making both bedrooms much bigger with floor to ceiling windows, private decks and adding a new huge 2nd master bath. If this renter had expressed these views we would have attempted to work with them. Their comment that the "Pictures were "crafted" doesn't jive with their statement that "there is a reason they didn't show the pictures", mutually exclusive. When you deal with the public you learn some folks just don't play fair. For instance the house across the street is not on the ocean has been off the rental market for 2 years due to bad renters. Oh well, guess they won't be one of our MANY repeat renters, thank goodness.
