This recently redecorated clapboard house combines historic atmosphere with modern convenience. Seascapes, shells and blue-and-white color scheme give the décor that classic coastal New England feel. Sit out on the covered porch and cook lobster or just admire the spacious yard, complete with picket fence and flower beds. Eat-in-kitchen, updated bathroom, washer-drier and master bedroom are all on the same level. Wireless Internet and basic cable provided.
We live just across the street from the property, and our kids and grandkids are often in town. We are never short of ideas for activities for all age groups, and we'd happy to point you in the right direction.
My family and I rented this property the week of July 4th and we had a truly memorable Maine experience. The house is recently renovated while keeping the historical charm of New England homes. The property is only feet away from restaurants and shops. Rob, the property manager, had many recommendations including Red's Lobster Shack which has the best lobster rolls in New England. We must have ate there 8 times during our stay! The house is right off Highway 1 which allows you to take many day trips to different parts of Maine. We also enjoyed whale watching, stripper fishing at Booth Bay Harbor and Pemequid Beach all of which were recommendations from Rob. If you want the true Maine experience stay here!
I rented the upstairs unit at Green Gables with my wife, son, and nephew. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and charming. The location was great - very close to Red's Eats, a famous spot for lobster rolls. There were numerous antique shops within walking distance.
The owner, Terry, was fabulous. He lives just down the block. I enjoyed talking to him about the house and coastal Maine. He was willing do do whatever it took to make for a pleasant stay. I remember him helping me get the lobster cooker going in the middle of the night!
I would definitely recommend this rental.
We spent 2 memorable weeks at Green Gables, Wisscasset. We found it to be everything we hoped for and more. It was spacious, bright, beautifully decorated and comfortable with all mod cons. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful, giving us lots of tips for things to see and do on our visit.
Wisscasset itself truly is one of the most picturesque towns in New England. We spent many evenings at Sarah's restaurant across the street, with it's kid friendly atmosphere and good food it was the perfect place for us to enjoy a meal and keep our 2 year old entertained at the same time. Macs cafe nearby is a must for a tasty dessert and coffee and of course world famous Reds Eats across the street served the most delicious lobster, we found the queue in the evening to be a lot smaller but it was always worth waiting for!
We would often take a stroll home along the harbour and grab a cheeky icecream at one of the stands along the way.
Wisscasset was also the perfect base to explore other nearby towns like Boothbay, just a 20 minute drive away which had fantastic restaurants and fun activities like kayaking, boating and whale watching to name but a few. There are also many scenic beaches and lakes to explore.
Some evenings we would watch the sun go down and sip a drink on the porch at Green Gables with our hosts discussing possible activities for the next day as our toddler played in the big garden.
Having travelled all the way from Dublin, Ireland to visit Maine we had high expectations, Green Gables and Wisscasset didn't disappoint. We will definitely be coming back!
Our family just returned to NJ from an idyllic vacation in Maine and I must say Green Gables was the absolute perfect home away from home... it was quaint and sweet and amazingly located, as we loved walking and biking around town (and stopping by Red's Eats of course). It was also really convenient to make day trips to Boothbay Harbor (lots of activities like kayaking and boat trips), Pemaquid Lighthouse, Damariscotta, Camden and much more. The beautiful Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens are not to be missed! Thanks to Rob's many tips, we were never short of things to see and experience. And oh yes, Mac's is the best place in Wiscasset for a cappuccino and decadent desserts (their crab rolls are pretty awesome too). A lovely hidden jewel is the Butterstamp workshop and gift store... it's a leisurely stroll from Green Gables. We'd like to thank Terry for his warm Maine hospitality and yes, the lobster pot and gas stove was a lovely additional touch to our stay. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay in mid coast Maine... we are definitely going to return to Green Gables!
My wife and I had a wonderful time staying here. It was very clean and well maintained, and the host was charming and eager to see that our time in Wiscasset was well spent. We really liked having the yard to relax in after the sunset to eat lobster and drink cold beer!
Wiscasset is a very picturesque town with plenty of historical buildings to visit and explore. My wife and I spent our mornings walking the streets and our afternoon exploring nearby villages. The local restaurants served up delicious seafood. We took a boat tour on another day and checked out the nearby beaches. The weather was perfect! And at night the air would cool off and we could sleep soundly with the windows open.
Our five days in Wiscasset was certainly one of our better getaways!
Around the corner is Main Street Wiscasset, and several antique stores and seafood restaurants like world-famous Red's Eats. Or you can stroll less than two minutes down to the picturesque marina, the boat dock (which is also a put-in for kayaks), and the Maine Eastern line train station. Wiscasset is the antiquing capital of Maine, and visitors will find an auction house a short drive over the Route 1 bridge. The 'prettiest village in Maine' has a recreation center with a swimming pool, and locations to purchase seafood fresh from the dock. The house is a 25-minute drive to Pemaquid Beach, and the famous Pemaquid Fisherman's Coop. Drive 20 minutes for the resort atmosphere, whale-watching and fishing trips available in Boothbay Harbor.
