'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.
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.
