Seaside 1800s Cape in Pemaquid

Perfect house in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house in perfect location! Just steps away from both the neighborhood and Pemaquid beaches, this house was roomy enough for our family of six adults. The house is well equipped and offers a lot--including outdoor shower and a hammock. The rooms are spacious, the house is very clean, and the kitchen is well stocked so it was easy to cook up some blueberry muffins or grill outside! It is an easy walk to Pemaquid harbor for kayaking, waterfront dining, a visit to the old fort. Every evening we were out for a neighborhood walk to enjoy the sunsets. The boat to Monhegan Island is just a short drive away. There is a lot to do in the area, but also a lot to do without getting in a car.

....And there are incredible cinnamon buns at the nearby cafe!

A lovely home and great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, just the kind of house I had in mind. I like colonial architecture and the additions from the original enhance the property. The location is perfect. Close to the local market, beach and activities. The neighborhood is like home not a "vacation" setting, which I so appreciated. The house is light and airy with wonderful skylights. You can hear the waves hitting the shore in the evening. I could amuse myself just watching the activity of the New Harbor lobster fisherman. And I love lobster!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. It is so nicely decorated, so comfortable and so big. The kitchen has everything u could ever need. It's only a couple houses from the beach... We walked there every morning with our coffee and watched our kids look for helmet crabs. There are a couple really good restaurants you can walk to. One of them makes the best cinnamon buns you will ever eat.

Be sure to use the outdoor shower and take a snooze in the in the hammock.

Wonderful place to vacation... We will be back!

Great vacation place -- wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay here, plain and simple.

The house is big and airy, with plenty of rooms, beds, and bathrooms for our extended family. Clean, roomy bedrooms, classic Maine charm with modern facilities and comforts of home. House has vaulted ceilings with wood beams and skylights in the kitchen, plenty of sunlight and fresh sea air/ wave sounds from the many windows -- and literally a few houses away from both the natural neighborhood beach and larger public beach with snack bar, showers, and toilets. Nature lovers will love this location.

Easy walk to the old fort, waterfront dining, dock fishing, kayaking, shell and beachglass hunting, and the best breakfast place we've ever been. Our kids climbed the apple trees while we slept in the hammack on the front yard, or sipped cocktails on the front deck. We rode our bikes out to the Lighthouse, and then stopped back at town on the way back to dine waterside with lobster rolls and ice cream at Shaw's.

This place and location had it all, the real feel and charm of a fishing/lobster community, combined with vacation and tourist-friendly activities and things to see and do within steps of the house. Close to the lobster co-op for the best freshest lobsters ever had, the town of New Harbor which is right off a post card, and Pemaquid light house -- which is honored on the State quarter.

We loved our Maine vacation, the Pemequid Point beach location, and all the house had to offer. We plan to make it back each summer, and hope to make this a new family tradition.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this house for a Pemaquid Point vacation. This house was great for the six of us (including two young children). It is s hisorically charming and comfortable. The kitchen is huge, with high ceilings, and excellant natural light. You can walk to two beaches and a fascinating fort and archeological dig. The property owners were great - very accomodating and providing insights and recommendations for the local area that all proved to be accurate. The security deposit was returned quickly, as well. One of their recommendations, the Pemaquid Lobster Co-Op (a ten minute drive)is not to be missed - $20 for a three lobster dinner that was the best lobster we have ever tasted.
