About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy spectacular bold, open ocean and St John's Bay views while listening to the Pemaquid Light Bell Buoy. This is one of the original cottages situated on an ideal lot on a private road. The 'Little Red House' has been meticulously maintained and is ready to help you relax and enjoy life the way it should be.

Read a book in front of the fireplace, walk out your front door onto the rocks, nap listening to the crashing surf or take a short walk to the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse. The house enjoys a prevailing Southwest breeze off of the ocean keeping you cool and bug free most of the time. No matter what you choose to do, you will enjoy the sweeping views & the best Maine has to offer!

Walk along the beautiful shoreline to the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse (back of the Maine commemorative quarter). Take a short drive to Pemaquid Beach for some sand and sun or visit historic Colonial Pemaquid State Park. At the end of the day, relax and enjoy eating lobsters on the deck while watching the sunset over the water!

Email me for more pictures and a Google Earth link or call for more information about the area and our piece of heaven on earth.

Availability calendar is kept up to date. More than 2/3 of my renters return the next year, so if you are interested in next season ask to be put on my waiting list.

Thanks for looking - Rich & Lee

Why Richard Hornor chose Pemaquid Point

We rented this home for about 10 years (3 to 4 weeks each summer) before we bought it. We have been coming to the area since we were both children.

What makes this cottage unique

You can't beat the view, particularly at sunset or the location. Very quiet / low traffic area. The cabin was built in 1930 and retains that character without being rustic. We keep it super clean (we personally do most of the turnovers), well equipped, and the addition (2008/2009) looks on the outside like it has always been there, but the new bath, laundry, outdoor shower, are all high end / luxurious. You have the best of both worlds. Maine in 1930 but with modern luxuries.

Best Vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time here and it is always Heaven for 2 weeks, quiet mornings with coffee watching the ocean and lobster boats from the living room and quiet walks to Pemaquid Light House. Even in the fog and rain it is the best vacation ever.

The renovated kitchen was nothing less than gourmet and so beautiful. We cooked in every night and it was a joy.

Everything was spotless and so elegant. We always feel so fortunate that you allow us to share your home for 4 weeks out of the year.

It is so much more than a "rental". It's a home at Pemaquid Point.

See you in October...we can't wait.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you liked the updates in the kitchen. Lee and I are very happy how it came out. Personally, I love the new Rinnai heater for the shoulder seasons. Thanks for coming back twice a year! You are my first renter who does that, though you have a long way to catch up to my most loyal renter who has been coming almost continuously for 25 years! The Little Red House will be waiting for you in October! Rich & Lee

Maine at its Best

  • 5 of 5

If you don't need water parks, malls, long lines and chain restaurants, but appreciate fresh lobster right off the boat, astonishing scenery, a quiet oceanfront location, excellent local eateries, a sandy beach and wonderfully clean accommodations, THE LITTLE RED HOUSE IS FOR YOU. At nearby New Harbor lobster fisherman unload their catch daily at one of the most photographed harbors on the Atlantic. Taking a ferry ride to Monhegan Island is a must as is watching the sun rise at nearby Pemaquid Point light. Art galleries abound in the area. In the 40+ years we have vacationed along the Maine coast, our time at the Little Red House is at the top of the list. It is well-equipped, spacious and a joy to visit. You will want to come back.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Cozy house. Plenty of space. Great view. Short walk to Pemaquid Lighthouse. Bar / restaurant a short walk up the road. Outdoor fire pit plus indoor fireplace for those rainy days. Firewood being included was a huge plus. Owner is a great guy and easy to work with. Highly recommended.

the little red house

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was heavenly. The house is charming with touches of a "home" and immaculate. The view of the ocean from every window is breathtaking .the walks every day from right out the front door were fantastic.

Our time at "the little red house" is always magical.
