About Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005

HI there- Here I am in front of my Maine home with one of my huge Dahlias- I have over 50 varieties that grow beside the house in the summer. My whole family are Mainers and my mom and dad met at the Brunswick naval air station long ago. My grandfather owned the town grain store in Bath and my great grandfather had a farm once attacked by Indians. Spruce Cove is a magical place and home to me and my grown boys ( occasionally) and many friends from around the world all summer. We come in the winter too for cosy retreats and snow shoeing and contemplation.

Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005 purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005 chose Harpswell

We bought this property because my husband fell in love with it the minute he saw it and was so very happy here. It has a magical quality about it because of the tides coming and going , the wildlife and the tranquility. Every summer is filled with wonderful memorable times from the fairy twinkles of fireflies in the woods in June to the fall colors brilliantly shining off the cove in October.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

You drive fifteen minutes from Bowdin College and Brunswick

(only 30 from LL Bean) and find yourself in the most quiet serene setting of nature imaginable Bald eagles soar overhead, baby foxes cavort on the walls around the garden and the tides ebb and flow teaming with birdlife and an occasional deer, stripers caught right in the Cove off of my kayak.

Wonderful home, and setting. Perfectly described.

  • 5 of 5
We are a mixed age family group. All of us enjoyed the comfort and convenience of Carla's beautiful home. She is very hands-on and works to help you enjoy her property, and the boats that are available for your use. We loved cooking in the large kitchen, drinking coffee or other beverages in the sun room or around the fire pit, playing croquet on the grassy lawn, even watching Sharknado on Netflix. This property has everything to make your vacation successful. Really loved the kayaks.

The Mystical Maine

  • 5 of 5
The home is set in a beautiful setting on the shore of a cove in Harpswell,Maine. The home is large, beautifully appointed and with many personal touches. It was far more luxurious than we anticipated. There are gardens everywhere and many flowers were in bloom. It was spotlessly clean and there was nothing that we neded that wasn't there to use.

Kyaking and hiking were wonderful activities and I would recommend this home to anyone. In fact we are planning to return next year and I have already recommended it to a friend who is planning a visit to Maine.

Knockout location for a perfect family vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Gorgeous, clean, and comfortable home with all the creature comforts for my extended family of 8. The kids and grandkids enjoyed the huge yard (complete with fireflies), garden and coastline. And I enjoyed eating my fresh lobster and sipping my wine on the veranda while watching them all play (and the stunning view of course).
Great location near the quaint coastal towns, local restaurants and activities. We're planning our next year trip!

Top Notch for Everything

  • 5 of 5
A truly tranquil spot that is very much home from home. The owner keeps the property in fine order and there is plenty of space and something there for everyone. Do try to avoid falling out of one of the canoes from the basement if you can as the shore is naturally muddy and a careless slip led to a smelly dunking. Fortunately, hot showers and towels fixed that problem.....
That was the only problem.

The location is well placed for those that want to explore the local area too and next time we visit we hear that there may also be a dock!

This is managed by an owner that wants to do it right.

You will be hard pressed to find a better place to stay and we didn't want to leave.

Fabulous Maine vacation home on a private cove

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a large home for a family and friends reunion in Maine. This beautiful home, located on a secluded finger of the Maine coastline, was the perfect location. The property resides on six acres of land at the end of a private road which guarantees you the upmost privacy. The house sits at the top of a hill which overlooks a beautiful bay. Lots of trees and wildlife. We even saw a family of foxes on our morning walks.

The house is huge! The bedrooms are large and most are framed with beautiful windows with views of the bay. The modern kitchen is equipped with professional oven and upscale granite counter tops. There is a lovely sunroom to sit in on rainy days. A large deck which is just outside the kitchen door is the perfect spot for evening entertaining. It includes a barbecue, large patio table and bar. If you and your friends decide to party into the night, the backyard has a large fire pit and you can play the music as loud as you want since no one will hear you except your guests.

There are many activities available for you during the day. Hiking, sport fishing, boating are just a few of your choices. There are many good restaurants in the area and plenty of places to pickup fresh Maine lobster. If you want to get in the car to do some sight seeing, the scenic Maine coast which includes the Pemaquid Lighthouse, Portland Maine, and L.L. Bean's world headquarters are close by. I never wanted to leave this place. It was one week of "living life in the bubble". I can't wait to come back again.
