THE HARBORGATE 50 FEET OF THE OCEAN WITH PRIVATE DOCK

Harpswell House Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6 Baths Sleeps 20 people

Location, Location, Location That is why you want to rent this popular property. It is located just 5.5 miles from Cook's Corner, 6 miles from downtown Brunswick. 15 minutes to Freeport and 30 minutes to Portland. Quahog Bay is a wonderful spot, enjoy your own private deep water dock. Cook Lobster on the deck. Enjoy spectacular sunrises into the many windows in this 1969 cedar home. Every bedroom has a view of the water.

The unique layout gives you two beautiful four bedroom homes. There is room in the main house for everyone to join together for meals and social time, but the separate home, in the same yard, gives you the alone time if you want it. We supply two 2 person kayaks, you may also bring your own boat and tie up to the 24' dock.

During our high season (Memorial Day-Labor Day) we request that both homes be rented by the same group. We only rent Saturday-Saturday, with a one week minimum. During our off season though, only the main home (the one located on the water) is available for rent. We will consider shorter rentals during the off season only, with a three night minimum.

ENJOYED BY ALL!

  • 5 of 5
This property is beautiful! 8 adults ranging in age 21 to 56 enjoyed this property and location.
The home is very spacious,modern and clean. The hammock and kayaks were a hit. Only thing missing is a fire pit for s'mores. (maybe not allowed) Neighborhood is very quiet.
We arrived an hour early and the property was ready. Terry greeted us and gave a tour of the house and explained how things work.

Terry was VERY helpful with great recommendations!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words! And so glad you all had a great time. We've been thinking about a fire pit for a while.....we're a big s'mores family too. Thanks for the suggestion! Hope to see you all again next summer.

THE FIRE PIT IS HERE! Please bring your own wood.

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

We held a family reunion at this property, with people from ages 8 to 80. Beautiful property. The main house was gorgeous and comfortable. Kayaked every day. Owner was accommodating and very easy to work with. Incredible experience.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We traveled from California, Florida, Louisiana and Massachussetts for this family gathering. Very relaxing--best view in Harpswell! Wished we could have stayed longer than a week!

Perfect setting for a family reunion. We rented the main house and both apartments. Very family friendly, great big lawn for kids to play. Dock was awesome. In addition to the kayaks provided, we brought 2 of our own. The kids really enjoyed kayaking to the "little island" at low tide. We were during the lobster was really cheap! $3.99 a pound cooked and cleaned--can't beat that. One day we kayaked around and ordered 20-something pounds of lobster while sitting in the kayak for pick-up later that day--what a great memory.

House was ideally set-up for a large group. Although we had the apartments, all cooking and dining happened in the main house, which worked out just fine. Plenty of room for all!!

Harpswell is very quiet community, but very charming. We drove out to Popham Beach (about 25 minutes away) several times--well worth it! Lots of sand and really cool tides. Kids and adults loved it. Camden, Maine (about 90 minutes) was also worth the drive. The men also did a lot of golfing in the surrounding areas.

Hope to visit again one day.

WONDERFUL RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We rented the main house and the 2 apartments for our stay. We had a mini-family reuinion and it was the perfect place for us. The views and home are wonderful and fully stocked. The place was completely stocked with plenty of towels and sheets for all beds. Terry was very easy to deal with and someday we may go back. I would reccomend this as a great rental. Even the views from apartments were fabulous.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
6 siblings from different parts of the US, and some of their spouses, met at Sarah & Terry's lovely home for a family reunion. The views from each room were beautiful, the place was comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay very much. Terry took us for a boat ride we arranged and as an added bonus, dropped us off at Admiral Peary's summer home for a tour. Terry was very knowledgeable about the area and proved to be as good a host as he was a tour guide! Thanks to him for the restaurant recommendations, too!
