Jefferson House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful, new, country home with full amenities - located on a private road. You will enjoy the sun streaming in as this home has grand southern exposures. The house sits next to lovely woods with private walking trails, on a cove, on Lake Damariscotta. This home has an open living design - perfect for a gathering of family and friends, with a fully equipped kitchen. Everything for active guests, who are ready for water sports and hikes or relaxing by the lake. The lake is down a short, clear path through beautiful woods. A full dock, beach chairs and kayaks are all at the lakefront, ready for your use. A great place for kids to safely explore the woods. Master bedroom with vaulted wood ceiling is spacious enough for a crib or playpen and includes a sitting area and office nook.

Evenings may include a campfire in the fire pit with s'mores, competitions at the Ping Pong table, listening to loons and star gazing. Trips to towns include Damariscotta or Augusta, 20 minutes away or 30 minutes to Camden and Rockland. Ocean drive to Round Pond, New Harbor and Pemiquid include lobster pounds, lighthouse and sandy beach, with antiques and art galleries all along the way. A five minute drive will take you to a farm stand with fresh vegetables and farm raised meats. There is a country store down the road three miles for essentials.

Damariscotta Lake is 14 miles long, terrific for all water sports. Kayaks provide perfect access to get you close to nature and see the loons and turtles. Cove provides sheltered location for quiet enjoyment and easy swimming. Sandy beach at Damariscotta Lake State Park.

Good family reunion home.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of grandparents, adult children and grandchildren had a very nice time in this home for 10 days in August. Sleeping space was good, although there are no blinds so we made a makeshift curtain for the kids' room to keep out morning sun. We all had fun with the kayaks and swimming from the dock. However it was further away from the house than we anticipated- down the road and then down a path so not at all visible from the house. We made trips to Boothbay Harbor for the puffin boat trip, lighthouses, aquarium. Plenty to do and see from this location. We cooked all our meals in the roomy kitchen.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy their vacation in a beautiful, spotless, comfortable, spacious, well equipped home in a fabulous location with water access. I have rented several houses in Mid Coast Maine over the past several years and this is hands down one of the best. This house exceeded our expectations.

The amenities are fabulous, especially the kayaks and the dock. The family of loons on the lake were just an added delight! The owners are extremely helpful in answering all questions and concerns in a timely manner. Don't even think twice about this fabulous place!

WONDERFUL Vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was fabulous, everything just as depicted. The owner was a joy to work with and the house was even better than I had expected. We had a great family vacation week there, fishing off the dock, swimming in the lake and enjoying the beauty and peace and quiet! Many great places are only a short drive away, Boothbay Harbor for whale watching is something I highly reccomend, as is walking the breakwater out to the lighthouse at Rockland. I would reccomend this home to anyone looking to vacation in Maine! The rooms are spacious, the house is well equipped, and really allows for a great famiy time together!!!
