About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4/5, 2nd bathroom upstairs for owners to us

Spectacular, first floor apt. of an awesome oceanfront cape on Pemaquid Peninsula for summer weeks. Here, majestic seascapes, islands, open ocean, and sunsets preside over Johns Bay. The property consists of one acre of gently-sloping lawn to a rockbound coast. Pemaquid Beach and Lighthouse are nearby. We are a NO-PETS and TOBACCO-FREE household to accommodate all guests. The self-contained accommodation on the first floor consists of two bedrooms: the master with a queen and single beds; the second bedroom with, one double beds (one possible from a couch). A four-foot-wide, glass/tile shower in the bathroom services both bedrooms. The owners use the private self-contained upstairs. If renters desired the whole house, you must check with the owners for price and availability. The open area has a queen-sized, multi-positional, Craftmatic bed surrounded by banks of five-foot-tall, casement windows. The large, second-floor bathroom has a shower-bath of tile and curved glass. In the large open area there is a moveable sectional sofa which can accommodate an additional person as an overnite guest. A memory foam comfortable pop-up single bed that is stored in a closet that can be used by downstairs renters or upstairs should the case may be. This large loft area also boasts a full bar kitchen with skylight venting a portable induction cook top, dishwasher, chest freezer and convection toaster/oven. Nearby there is an antique desk with computer WIFI, 33' HD TV and stationary bicycle. All sheets/linens are provided as are fireplace wood and charcoal barbecue. Should renters wish to occupy the entire house for one or two families, it is available at owners discretion. The fully private, self contained First Floor rents for US $1750 per week. Renters have full access to the two decks, grounds, tables, chairs, umbrellas, picnic table, hammock, etc. We can walk easily to Pemaquid Beach. We are located approximately 2000 feet away from this most gorgeous, fine-white-sand, beach. Pemaquid beach (known as one of the best in Maine) is tractor-sifted every night, and the facility operates a seasonal concession stand that sells good food and drinks. Our son has grown up playing on this beach. We offer some beach toys and also provide a beach umbrella and chairs for your day's enjoyment at Pemaquid Beach. Pemaquid Lighthouse is a picturesque and magical place complete with nautical museum and art gallery with an ocean-view restaurant adjacent to the lighthouse. We've driven here in the early morning hours for the ritual, rising of the sun over Monhegan Island. This New England lighthouse and its majestic, geological outcroppings will stir the photographer/painter/humanist in everyone. Caution: DO NOT VENTURE TOO FAR ONTO THE ROCKS. A ROGUE WAVE COULD FOREVER SWEEP YOU OUT TO SEA - PLEASE BE FOREWARNED!!

Museums/day trips/evening Trips: The Owl's Head Transportation Museum (Owl's Head, Me.) is a magnificent facility to visit. Antique cars, trucks and planes abound and are this facility's specialty showpieces. The OHTM occasionally provides opportunities to ride in antique biplanes during specific times of the year. The Maine Maritime Museum (Bath, Me.) is another destination from which you will come away with a great appreciation of Maine's maritime heritage/history. The Farnsworth Art Museum (Rockland, Me.) owns and displays a large, permanent collection of the Wyeth family paintings (N.C., Andrew and Jamie) as well as works by many other artists. The Farnsworth constantly hosts shows of all stripes of artists throughout the year. Bowdoin College (Brunswick, Me.) stages live theatre productions and has a new recital Hall and museum open to the Public. The Rockport Opera House (Rockport, Me.) hosts many world-class music and operatic concerts through its Bay Chamber Concert series and master-class offerings.

Boating : Pemaquid Harbor provides free community access (boat ramp at the 'Fort') to the waterfront for all types of marine craft, from sail, motor to kayak. Re: kayaking, local rentals/guided tours are available in the town of Pemaquid. Tie-up for small, row and motor boats is facilitated at the Pemaquid town dock; however, the dock is seized upon by boats throughout the summer, so access is on a 'first-come, first-served' basis. Wonderful, sunset, puffin- and whale-watching cruises are offered by the comfortable 'Hardy' passenger vessel out of New Harbor. The Hardy Boat also takes day tripping passengers to and from magical, Monhegan Island 10 miles out to sea. Hiking the island's cathedral woods and coastline are breath-taking and memorable experiences. Finally, charter/touring boats operate out of nearby Boothbay Harbor. On such a day trip, you might charter a deep-sea-fishing vessel and return home at dusk with, if you're lucky, many flounder, strippers or even a tuna.

And now, Booth Bay boasts a magnificent botanical gardens.

The Pemaquid peninsula is home to an unspoiled, working community of lobster men/women, builders, Restaurants, art galleries, golf course, marine services, Darling Marine Biology facility, National Audubon Society Nature and Wildlife Conservancy, Rachael Carson shoreland walk-on conservancy, oyster and mussel aquaculture businesses, rare Atlantic salmon fishery and a successful island reestablishment of the former nesting site of Puffins. New Harbor was the home of Samoset, the Indian who welcomed and aided the pilgrims in 1621-22. In addition, prehistoric Indian shell heaps as high as 30 feet are found on the banks of Damariscotta River in Damariscotta. Pemaquid is the earliest-known coastal settlement in Maine, circa 1600. Monhegan Island is Maine's earliest fishing settlements, circa 1614. To sum up, this location has become our 'heaven on Earth.' Warm Regards, The Donovans

Other Activities: Sunset, bird-watching, whale-watching and other types of ocean-going cruises and sport fishing

Golf: Wawenock G.C. is the local, 9-hole golf course. It is only 7 miles from our home and a truly fun 'patch' on which to play. Try it twice for a full, 18-hole round of golf. Guest reservations are required as members are given priority for tee-off times. This facility also has a driving range. Farther afield, but still only a day trip away, is the world-renowned, Samoset Golf & Country Club (ranked '7th most beautiful in America' by Golf Digest). This is a world-class, 18-hole, 'Pebble-Beach-of-the-east-like,' golf facility on rockbound Penobscot Bay in Rockland, Maine. A round here carries a hefty price tag; but it is the proverbial 'once-in-a-lifetime' activity of your vacation in Maine and well worth the money and time spent if you are a 'tried-and-true' golf person(s).

Ski: Camden Snow Bowl, in Camden, is the closest ski (toboggan championships) area a little over an hour away.
