Waldoboro House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedroom, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 8.

This converted barn was beautifully renovated to a 4 bedroom house. It is on a private peninsula jutting into one of the last pristine bays on the mid-coast of Maine. Walk across a beautiful sweeping hay field to a small pebbled beach for some of the best swimming around. Feast on local lobster or dine in one of many great local restaurants. Bring your boat because there is a paved launch ramp just down the street. The fishing is great. This house is a perfect place to bring family and friends.

Waldoboro: Waldoboro is on the Medomak River, at Muscongus Bay. It was originally a German settlement and was known for its local shipyards, which built five-masted schooners in the 19th century. Waldoboro is within easy reach of the Midcoast towns of Pemaquid, Damariscotta, Boothbay, Freeport and Portland to the south and Rockland, Rockport, Camden and Belfast to the north.

...but that would be unfair to the owner of this wonderful property, which is just as lovely in person as it is in the photos. We stayed at the barn for a week in early summer recently, and had such a relaxing, pleasant time that I felt sad to close the door behind me on the last day. This is truly impressive considering that we were a party of two families with four boys under the age of five among us. The boys were enchanted by the yard and by the water (which is everywhere around you in this place) and we were able to combine short day trips to kid-friendly locations with relaxing evenings at the house, enjoying a little wine and cooking for ourselves while the kids watched a movie in the sitting room.

The barn, itself, is absolutely charming. The folks who serve as the caretakers literally appeared in the driveway as we were stepping out of our car and made themselves available at all times, offering generous help and advice. The owner's recommendations were also very useful and you absolutely cannot miss the lobster down at Broad Cove Marina. We sat there on a sunny day with our boys and showed them their first lobster meal right on the water. It was totally memorable.

If you want to feel like you've escaped the stress of your life and you want little more than to look at a lush view, hear the birds, and unplug from it all, this is a great place in which to do it. And there is still a grocery store, pizza, ice cream...just minutes away. We are grateful for for a week we will always remember.

We Fell In Love with Maine and this House

Our extended family stayed in this property the last week of July 2010. The property is beautiful, spacious and gives you the true "summering" in Maine experience. The house is an old ox barn and is tastefully decorated and has all the amenities and comforts that you would want. The walk to the river is through a sloping field and the boat ramp is also close by. Great for canoeing and kayaking. The area is great for biking too. Waldoboro is centrally located to so many things, you definitely will want to come back again and again. After staying in this property we want to come back again and again.
