QUIET, REST, & RELAXATION ON HISTORIC PEMAQUID HARBOR

Pemaquid Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

You are invited to enjoy one of the prettiest and most peaceful spots on the East Coast (or anywhere, for that matter). We have found Pemaquid Harbor's perfect mix of sea, breeze, woodlands, history, and quiet to be the perfect getaway tonic. The pace is peaceful and low key, not noisy and fast-paced as at commercial resorts.

The house is situated on three quarters of an acre right on the harbor. The view is spectacular, as the photo will attest. A path leads down to our dock where we have approximately 75 feet of ocean frontage. The nine- to 11-foot tide leaves the dock high and dry twice a day.

The joys here are many, but modern conveniences are relatively few. There is no television, but there are plenty of books. For your convenience, there is a CD player/AM/FM stereo. High-speed internet is provided, but there is no resident computer (and a wireless card or Ethernet cable port on your computer is required). The additional 'one-quarter' bath listed above is an outdoor (but fully enclosed) shower for communing with nature. The indoor bath includes a tub and shower.

The three bedrooms include one with a queen-size bed, one with a double-size bed, and one equipped with a set of bunk beds. Additional sleeping space is available on a full-size sleep sofa in the living room.

In short, this is a family summer cabin designed to provide a comfortable and casual vacation equal to the spirit of Maine itself. No pets and absolutely no smoking, please.

THE CLASSIC MAINE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This cottage presents an opportunity to experience a truly classic Maine vacation. The location is so perfect that you may never want to leave the cottage as the view is so lovely. It is pleasant to just sit to watch the lobster boats working in the picturesque harbor under the watch of Fort William Henry.
However the cottage is located in an area where it is possible to experience all the things that a proper Maine vacation should include.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (the lighthouse that appears on the 2003 quarter) is just minutes away and is well worth a visit or two. Being in Pemaquid means that you are in the heart of Lighthouse Country, with 10 other lighthouses – 13 if you count all 3 small lights at Doubling Point -- in the immediate area.

You will be practically next door to a lobster co-op and within easy distance of several other working harbors.

You are also close to three unique villages: Damariscotta, Wiscasset and Boothbay Harbor. All are pretty and charming and we usually go into Damariscotta frequently with occasional forays to Wiscasset (great antiques) and Boothbay (whale watching and sailing cruises). All three villages offer terrific restaurants. Be sure to check out the restaurants in Round Pond and Bristol as well.

It is worth making a trip to Hallowell, in between Damariscotta Mills and the state capital of Augusta. In addition to being known as a northern jazz nightspot, Hallowell has been identified as "Maine's Antique Riverport.” It is a really fascinating town.

I have only covered a fraction of the activities in the area. There are also many hiking trails that are appropriate for different skill/fitness levels and ocean kayaking is very popular. Next year we plan to bring our canoe so that we can canoe in the Pemaquid River.

The cottage itself is very comfortable and homey. And Beth and Peter have always been the best of hosts/landlords. I am so glad that we found this cottage and we so look forward to our annual trip. It is a wonderful break.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been staying in the Pemaquid Penninsula area for over 15 years at a small motel & cottages. When that became tiresome about five years ago I chanced upon this cottage on VRBO. We took a chance, fell in love and ended up becoming long distance friends with the owner. Everything is as stated, spotless and well worth the money for the relaxation it provides. I can't speak of the tub and shower because we have always used the outdoor shower. We particularly enjoy the "Golden Hour" just before sunset in the Adorondack chairs on the lawn overlooking the harbor with our favorite adult beverage in hand. We look forward to our two weeks there in 2013 and beyond! You will not want to go back to the real world after staying here.
If you visit do not miss the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum, a two foot guage railroad in nearby Alna. ME especially if you have young children. The volunteers there will make you feel like family. Favorite restaurants include the Samoset and Shaw's Wharf in New Harbor and Francine's in Camden. For breakfast we get cinnabons at the Cupboard nearby or eat at Ship's Chow Hall on Route 1 in Wiscasset. Pemaquid Beach is the nicest beach north of Bermuda though the water is a tad chilly.

MAINE COAST THE WAY IT SHOULD BE!

  • 5 of 5
Great get-away spot. It's quiet and very scenic. My visit was 40 years ago but the view hasn't changed and a swim in the ocean will still be "brisk". The owner has done diligent upkeep to a cabin he loves.

It's a great place to slow-down.
