Beautiful Apartment in Great Location
This is an immaculate property that boasts beautiful water views in a tranquil setting, from high among the treetops, while being convenient to town (2 miles by land; less than that, by water).
The apartment is very large, with a sleeping alcove, a living area with small couch, rocker and TV, sitting areas, a table for 4 and a reasonably sized kitchen with bar seating for 2. Sliding doors take you out to a deck with grill and table/chairs; 6 windows bring in lots of natural light with "Maine views" of woods and water and spectacular sunsets over the river. White walls, natural wood floors and trim are accented with lots of color, artwork and a mix of furniture that provides a comfortable and contemporary feel.
Adirondack chairs are placed at strategic site-points or you can bring folding chairs down to the beach, the dock or the rocks. A canoe is available for you to take out whenever you wish. You can explore the nearby island, paddle around many of the hidden coves or go into town or go downriver (just be mindful of the tides and currents).
Newcastle/Damariscotta and the Pemiquid Peninsula have spectacular scenery. Boothbay Harbor, Wiscasset, and Rockland/Camden are an easy drive. Portland/Freeport and Acadia will take longer, but are within reach, along with many interesting sights in between. Ferries can take you to Monhegan, Vinalhaven and other locales. The area is studded with points and coves and farms and villages that will keep you busy. There are countless opportunities to hike or stroll; swimming can be done at your own beach on the river or at (still warmer) Damariscotta Lake. Fishing, boating, antiquing, scenic drives, art of all kinds, great restaurants (and lobster pounds) are within easy reach. ....or soak up the environment with a good book (there are bookstores in town and Patsy has provided a few, on the book shelves). Shopping is close with lobster pounds, fish markets, great farm stands, supermarkets, wine & beer, bakeries all nearby.
Patsy is a warm and wonderful host, who will make you feel most welcome and will give you the space you may want. She's knowledgeable about just about everything ...just ask.
We've been here twice and this feels almost like home (without the mortgage). Judging by similar comments in the guest book, others seem to have the same idea.
This is a very nice property in a great part of the state. It's hard to miss. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
