Overview

Portland and Casco Bay Area House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, 1 outdoor shower, sleeps 11

We are excited to share that our property was recently chosen by the Andrew Harper travel company to be designated as a select luxury vacation property. This property is located in historic Bath, ME, which is part of the Boothbay Harbor Region (PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT IN BRUNSWICK AND WE ARE TRYING TO CORRECT). In the summer, families enjoy a spectacular private beach property. Summer pricing includes the perfect combination of both a modern luxury beach house, and located just across the lawn, a quintessential Maine styled premium water's edge cottage. Our child and pet friendly property offers a warmer private tidal beach (high to low tide) to swim and play on, outstanding views throughout, great amenities, including central air conditioning, stunning summer sunsets and beautiful outdoor spaces. During the fall and other off-season months, the property is an outstanding getaway providing excellent privacy for couples and small groups. It is ideally designed for groups seeking a contemporary home with amenities and well appointed sleeping areas. The house design as well as the cottage can provide for some extended families traveling together excellent privacy and more quiet spaces. The cottage provides one of the bedroom accommodations, but also provides the perfect daytime 'beach cabana' by offering a convenient second kitchen, bathroom and shower at the edge of the water. The bay's private tidal beach offers calmer and warmer shores that are perfect for swimming and playing with buckets and other water toys. There are no 'drop offs' or rough surf to worry about and our tidal bay heated by our unique westward sunset facing direction makes for some of the "warmest" swimming water in all of Maine. L.L. Bean kayaks and lounging rafts are located directly on beach for easy use, and there is a fitness room located at the house. This rare property is on a sunset facing tidal bay (high-to-low tide) that has access to travel towards the open ocean, and is home to bald eagles and other important and protected birds and flora. We are not on the open ocean. The property is in very good proximity to a variety of shopping, dining and tourist attractions.

Bath is part of midcoast Maine & the Boothbay Harbor region. Tour nearby historic Bath, voted of the best small cities in America, shop, dine and 'hop on the trolley'. Visit Boothbay Harbor, Five Islands, Freeport Outlets and L.L. Bean, Cundy's Harbor, Wiscasset, Georgetown, Popham Beach, Camden, Portland & more! 56' great room TV/40' master TV, Internet, gas fireplace, on-site massapending upon availability may include professional nanny service, and hot lobster delivery. Dining recommendations and touring information provided.

About Ariane Salamy

My family purchased the property and we had cottages on the land that has become this beautiful new summer estate, consisting of luxury beach house and cottage. As a child, I spent much time playing and swimming on the private beach that guests now enjoy. Today we offer kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboard, floating rafts and lots of beach toys for little ones.

What makes this house unique

Our private beach provides lots of fun and Maine water that is actually warm enough to enjoy. This is because Merrymeeting Bay while being a tidal bay with high to low tides uniquely faces into the sunset making it both beautiful and comfortable to have fun in. We are located in excellent proximity of midcoast touring attracting and much fine dining and fun shopping including Freeport outlets

Easter Weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

For an extended Easter weekend, our family enjoyed being a guest at this coastal home. From the minute we inquired about the property, the Owners were responsive and extremely informative. Our questions were immediately answered, our reservations confirmed, and we anxiously awaited the day we could arrive! We were guests at this property with our young adult son, our brother and sister-in-law, and my husband's parents. The setting was perfect for the seven adults in our party, and everyone had a private and comfortable bedroom area. The view of the water will greet you as soon as you walk in, where you will admire it from EVERY room, and all the views were equally as good. The kitchen was the scene of a memory making dinner that all of our family members participated in creating, and became the favorite part of our stay. We only had one sunny day during our time as a guest here, but it provided a spectacular sunset that we stopped to admire on the patio, even if only for a brief moment. We also walked on the beach looking for sea glass. As a guest, you will discover for yourself that this home was professionally designed, and constructed with quality and care that you will appreciate and respect. The home is lovingly cared for, and obviously cherished by the Owners. The location is private, yet close to restaurants, shopping, exploring and sightseeing for when you want to be entertained. Our stay was extremely comfortable, and very relaxing. We look forward to a time when we can return in the summer! Thank you for your amazing hospitality!

Terrific house, gorgeous views, wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

All 10 members of our three generation family, plus our dog, had a perfect vacation at this property. Not only is the house immaculately clean and furnished with every amenity one could wish for but, in addition, the owners are outstanding. From the minute we rented the house, then received extensive info about things to do and places to go in the area, and, finally, arrived to find various goodies waiting for us, we felt as though we were guests in someone's home rather than renters. This vacation property is a real gem. As far as local food goes, don't miss Five Island Lobster and Gelato Fiasco.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the main house my granddaughter who lives in a very nice house in New Jersey said this is a " mansion!" Maybe neither is a mansion, but what she meant in kids' talk is "this is awesome." The house is very clean and well maintained. Far beyond what I would ever imagine of a summer rental. The equipment and facilities are first rate, sort of what I would expect at home. The guest house was a perfect spot for my younger son and his younger family . The property sits on a tidal bay, fed, I am told by the caretaker, by 5 rivers. Each day my older son kayaked across the bay and each day came back with a story of something new , while the younger ones were collecting "valuable" sea glass on the property"s beach. The location is great for exploring Mid-Coast and Southern Maine. I think Maine is heaven, and this property is a very nice part of it. This from a guy who has been coming to Maine for almost 60 years.

This is an outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

This spotlessly clean vacation home and cottage exceeded all of our expectations. The views of the water from the house are wonderful, particularly the sunsets each evening. The grandchildren loved being in the warm fresh water (quite different from the ocean itself) and the adults enjoyed the canoe and kayaks. Our two favorite restaurants were the Dolphin and Five Island Lobster Pound. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this house as the owner had thought of and provided everything you could possible need.

You just found your vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at property 233669 on Merrymeeting Bay, Maine. As travelers, it is important to us to feel at home at a rental property. After all, we are on vacation. We want to stay at a place that is comfortable and, to some extent, better than home. From the awesome architectural design of the house, the attention to detail in decorating, the landscaping, the view, the smell of balsam fir and the remote away-from-it-all experience (yet so close to many towns), you definitely are in for a treat. To be honest, my partner and I said several times “we could live here”. The pictures do not do this property justice. As of our stay in October 2014, all of the furniture in the common areas had been updated to comfortable leather couches.

The private beach area is great for both dogs and small children as it is a slow incline into the water during low tide and not rocky. We kayaked the bay (awesome!) and hiked the local conservation trails 100 ft or so from the property daily. We drove to both Rangeley State Park and Acadia State Park for some awesome hiking and biking with the dog. We had dinner at several of the restaurants that the owner had recommended (Mae’s for breakfast, Red’s Eats for lobster rolls, El Camino and Enoteca Athena for dinner) and were not let down. They were great recommendations. We visited many local attractions that were listed in the information packet provided by Ariane including Boothbay Harbor, Popham Beach, downtown Bath, downtown Brunswick and some awesome local breweries. Whether you are looking for a property for solitude, luxurious getaway, outdoorsy activities or proximity to nightlife, this property has it all. You can be as active in the outdoors as you wish, lounge on the chairs and take in the smell/view, or head into town for some great food and local microbrews.

We have rented from Homeaway on several occasions in the Adirondacks, Lake Anna, Smith Mountain Lake, Deep Creek Lake, Dolly Sods, Ashville, Poconos and in Europe. This is hands down the best property we have ever rented from Homeaway. And no, we do not know the owner personally. It was just that great of an experience. We definitely enjoyeed our stay!!

Beautiful House in World Class Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this beautiful home perched above its private beach on the east bank of Merrymeeting Bay. The views out front over the bay were splendid every day, even during a rain storm and the sunsets nothing short of spectacular. Out back was a substantial nature reserve on the doorstep managed by the City of Bath that afforded great walks with our dogs through mixed woodland over a variety of trails. We are grateful indeed to the owner who paid great attention to detail to ensure that our stay was of the highest quality in her immaculate house. Bath is a short 10 minute drive away and had everything that we could have wanted. Good restaurants and other eateries, clean well organized and stocked supermarkets,specialist fish merchants and butchers, farmers markets; they are all to hand in or near the town. As if that wasn’t enough, they have been building warships for the US Navy in the ‘Bath Iron Works’ for 400 years. We have been recommending this property to friends and colleagues ever since we got home from our wonderful holiday there.

We are minutes from downtown Historic Bath, voted 'one of the best small cities in America'. Bath, Maine is the gateway to midcoast Maine and offers good proximity to midcoast touring attractions such as Boothbay Harbor, Wiscasset, Camden, and Pemaquid area. Close by visit Bailey's Island, Cundy's Harbor and enjoy lobster at Georgetown's Five Islands. We are close to Freeport shopping outlets the home of L.L. Bean and also offer good proximity to Portland attractions. Property is situated on Merrymeeting Bay in a highly unique westward facing position. You feel in middle of nowhere, but are only a few minutes from everything you could want or need. This is a very rare east coast opportunity to enjoy a private beach, staying on tidal water (high to low tide) and also enjoy stunning sunsets. The bay is highly protected and ecologically important providing a home to many special birds, fish and flora. American Bald Eagles make the bay their home. The duck migration in the fall is second only in North America to the much larger Chesapeake Bay. Come enjoy all our location has to offer!
