The house is located within a historic neighborhood, with a relaxed and friendly feel.

We love Maine for the history, the beauty, the abundance of nature, the friendly people, the lobster...but most of all for the sailing. We live all summer aboard our sailboat and are happy to share our home with visitors while we are out on the ocean.

Sarah Burnham purchased this house in 2003

Quince Cottage was built in Damariscotta Mills around the year 1850 and sits on a lovely piece of land in one of the oldest villages in Maine. It is called Damariscotta Mills because it nestles between the fresh water of Damariscotta Lake and the tidal waters of Great Salt Bay, at the head of the Damariscotta river. The house retains many of its original features of wide pine floorboards, lathe and plaster walls, old wavy glass 6-over-6 wood-pane windows, and white clapboard siding. The house faces south to a generous side yard with rustic cottage-style gardens and a gravel patio and outdoor fire ring.

Damariscotta Mills is a natural place of abundance where Alewife fish have been migrating up the streams for thousands of years. The mills were built in the 1600's and 1700's to take advantage of the natural fall of water from the lake. By 1809, a fish ladder was built to preserve the prolific fish run and efforts continue today to maintain and improve this natural abundance. Visitors thrill to the courage of these little fish as they swarm upstream in late May and early June (while the lilacs bloom). By July, the crowds and the fish have gone and the lake has warmed to perfect swimming conditions. A small sandy beach is filled with families while the bridge is host to teens jumping into the refreshing water while others enjoy picnics and the sun on the adjacent lawn. By late summer, the gardens start to produce their abundance of tomatoes, squash and herbs. It's a time for relaxing in the shade or driving the short distance to Pemaquid Beach for a salt water swim. Eventually, the leaves begin their yearly show of brilliant colors and it's time for Pumpkinfest.

Quince Cottage is located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood that is just a short distance to all the Midcoast has to offer; great restaurants and shopping in Damariscotta, the spectacular Pemaquid Lighthouse, picturesque Boothbay Harbor and still less than an hour to Freeport/Portland to the south and Camden/Rockport to the north.

TRANQUIL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a tranquil spot to spend a week....I only wish we had more time. My recent vacation with 5 teenagers was a slice of heaven on earth. The teens found plenty to keep them occupied and active, while I enjoyed strolling through town shopping and enjoying the local sea food. This house is huge, and so quiet. The gardens are spectacular and serene. I will definitely be returning.

QUINCE COTTAGE DELIVERS

Our visit to Quince Cottage was really great! The house is warm and inviting. We especially enjoyed the gardens. My daughter was thrilled to meet the cat next door that sat next to her in the swing in the yard. Breakfast on the sun-porch or in the herb garden was a treat. The beds were quite comfortable and the bonus of wifi made our teenage son very happy. I espcially enjoyed the age of the home. With a similar layout and feel of the home I grew-up in, I was taken back to my childhood. The wideboard floors and plaster walls and ceilings are well kept and take you back to when craftsmen knew how to buld a home. Everyone we saw durng our walks greeted us with a wave and a smile. Just a few miles to Dmariscotta, this was convenient to get to the local sites.

Damariscotta Mills is a historic neighborhood located at the south end of Damariscotta Lake where three waterfalls connect to the tidal waters of the Damariscotta River. In the 1600s, it was a thriving area of mills and abundant in fish and oysters. Today, the historic Alewife fish ladder teems with life each spring and the Damariscotta river oyster farms are gaining fame as some of the world's tastiest. At the heart of the neighborhood is the popular swimming area between the lake and the mill pond, with a small sandy beach for relaxing or a rocky area for the more energetic splashers. Nearby is the quaint town of Damariscotta, the sandy salt-water beach of Pemaquid, the picturesque lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, and the seaside town of Boothbay Harbor. There are many acclaimed restaurants nearby or you can have lobster served right on the water. Boating trips are easily arranged to learn about lobstering or just sit back and enjoy a sail.
