Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our fourth year here, and looking forward to 2015! Morning coffee on the porch or in the sunny kitchen, close enough to many fun things to do, yet far enough from the tourist traffic. A welcome place to come back to after treasure hunting, or a day at the beach! The owners are wonderful people! Highly recommend as a great place to stay!

Antiques, Local Color, Lobsters, Sun and Sea!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three stayed in this lovely, spacious older home. All systems worked fine. We burned a few logs in the Russian stove one cool morning, but most days were 78 to 88 degrees. Would recommend to friends and family. We return every year.

Found some great bargains at Montsweag Flea Market in Woolwich. Bought lobsters in Friendship for $3 per pound! Enjoyed the sun and water at Birch Point Beach State Park in Owls Head, Damariscotta Lake in Jefferson, and Martin’s Point Beach in Friendship. We watched videos found in the media library, in the evenings and on the occasional rainy day. Explored Fort William Henry at Colonial Pemaquid Historic Site in New Harbor. Would love to try kayaking in the many wetlands we saw. Bought souvenirs at the Friendship Day craft show, but missed the lobster boat races. More bargains at Big Al’s odd lot store in Wiscasset. Browsed the Rockland Antiques Exchange and the used books stores in Rockland. Returned home tired but happy,

Central location. Big house for a group of folks.

  • 3 of 5
Lots to do around the area. Many beds for a big group. Grill in poor shape and only one burner on stove top worked which makes cooking challenging. Nice view with no access to water.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. I hope you found some of the kayaking and beachcombing spots we left directions for.

Our old gas grill is still hanging in there, fortunately, and we are saving for a new one. We may be able to buy one by the end of this summer.

I'm sorry to hear you had trouble with the stove; perhaps there was confusion about which knob contolled which burner, between the stove and the JennAir grill. We arrived the week after you departed and found both burners worked fine. Feel free to call us when something does not work, if you should come another time, and we may be able to clear things up on the spot.

Wonderful and Unique Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous Maine house with plenty of room and lots of books for young and old. Our three year old grandson could have stayed at the house with all its attractions and never even missed the beaches. (Although, we definitely enjoyed the nearby beaches.) The location was perfect - close to good places to eat (Moody's) and great places to visit. (Booth Bay Harbor) Where else can you enjoy peacocks in the yard? The owners were terrific and went far out of their way to insure everything was perfect. This would be a great place to enjoy off season as well.

Lovely Mid Coast Maine

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this delightful home in July 2012 with 3 other adult couples and found it charming and spacious. The house was stocked with everything we needed (and quite a bit more).

The Damariscotta restaurant "Schooner Landing" was a good find, with reasonable prices, upbeat staff, and tender, sweet lobster. Great water view, and outside dining available.

The owners were wonderful and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this home for your next mid-coast Maine getaway.

Family size 5 bedroom house with fireplace, near rocky and sandy beaches and town boat landing, a ferry to Vinalhaven Island, close to Boothbay Harbor, Bath, Wiscasset and Damariscotta. Antique shops too numerous to mention. Waldoboro boasts an alpaca farm, and its own live theater. Fresh local seafood outlets and dockside lobster feasts ... or more conventional restaurants too. Kayak rentals are available on our street.

Don't miss Waldoboro Day and the clam hod races in June!
