Come experience, and be mesmerized by the crashing surf, beauty, and history of the Pemaquid Point Peninsula.
'Ledgewood Cottage' sits on 12 private oceanfront acres and is the only property on Long Cove Point.
The cottage has a sunny, open floor plan which provides a great place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous views, listen to the crashing surf, or watch the lobster boats and seagulls float by. Enjoy the the upper deck, or lower screened-in porch, both with commanding ocean views.
Enjoy total relaxation sitting on the granite cliffs with your favorite book or paint brush and canvas, not to mention your camera so you can capture the beauty of the coastline of Maine.
The cottage is a great place for a family reunion or group of friends, and sleeps 8-10 comfortably in 4 bedrooms.
There is a large open living area which expands into the spacious kitchen with a large island to gather around for casual meals, or enjoy eating in the large dining area, both with great views!
On the lower level there is another gathering room, bedroom (with Queen bedroom) and full bath which is very private from the main living area.
Pemaquid Point, with its dramatic streaks of granite, shaped by thousands of years of glacial movement offers what few other coastal locations in Maine have, the incredible 'drama' of magnificent rock formations which lend themselves to the sea.
The name 'Pemaquid' Is said to have its origins in the Abenaki Indian word for 'Situated Far Out'. Immigrants from Bristol, England established a settlement in Pemaquid in 1631.
Today, many of the historic sites still exist for you to experience.
Today, Pemaquid is an active center for the traditional trades of Lobstering, fishing, and clamming. Mussels, and Oysters are cultivated in the Damariscotta River, and are some of the best in the world.
Enjoy the beaches, wonderful restaurants, including lobster pounds, funky road side seashacks, and sit down meals all nearby, and many boating excursions which will allow you to experience the breathtaking coast.
Visit the magnificent Monhegan Island, rich with its artistic history of many great American painters, most notebly the Wyeth Family (NC, Andrew and Jamie) and see painters of today and tomorrow working. Explore the coastline with its breathtaking views which will last a lifetime. (Daily access by several boat excursions)
Many other boat excursions include nature cruises, puffin cruises, whale watching and fishing.
The nearby villages of Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Wiscasset, to name just a few, offer wonderful site seeing, restaurants and activites for every age.
This is a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. The setting is very private and the views are fabulous! The photos do not capture the wonderful view from the kitchen/dining and living rooms. The sound of the ocean can be heard from every room in the house. The living areas were spacious and the house was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen and outdoor gas grill made it easy to make wonderful meals and enjoy the view at the same time. We especially enjoyed climbing on the rocks and watching the various birds, boats as well as the crashing waves. We had fabulous weather-- even the one storm was amazing to watch from the living room. Boat trips to Monhegan Island and to watch the puffins, as well as a day sail were easy from here. We really want to come back again! Thank you for sharing your special home!
We really enjoyed the fantastic ocean views from the living room and kitchen !! The home is very private, and we enjoyed watching the boats, birds, and the crashing surf. There is a path from the house down to the rocks from where the views are breath taking. There is a booklet with information about things to do in the area. The binoculars and Wifi were a nice touch. There are not too many channels on TV, but there were many games and jigsaw puzzles that we played.
Had a fun trip to the top of the Pemaquid lighthouse, Pemaquid beach, Boothbay railway village and botanical gardens during this stay. Pictures don't do this house justice, and we would love to return. Thank you Laura. We had a wonderful vacation !
