Tenants Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck or your private bedroom balcony, watching the lobster boats off Clarke Island. Stroll down the quiet road to the nearby lobster dock or old quarry. Pull a good book from the well stocked shelves and find a cozy spot for a good read...

Our spacious home was completely renovated in 2009, with modern conveniences, little luxuries, and New England charm. Large windows bathe the interior with natural light and provide ocean views from nearly every room. Perfect for entertaining, the main living area features an open floor plan, leading to a large deck. Prepare your fresh lobster dinner in the all new, well equipped kitchen, or enjoy indoor or outdoor dining at one of the many nearby restaurants.

The upstairs features a large, open sitting area that includes a futon and doubles as extra sleeping space. Each bedroom is decorated with comfort and relaxation in mind. The king bedroom includes a futon below its large sunny windows. The queen bedroom features a sitting area and private balcony with spectacular views. Downstairs, the 3rd bedroom has both twin and full beds.

Before you climb into bed, have a long, luxurious soak in the antique reproduction slipper tub, while gazing at the stars. Or enjoy our custom walk-in shower with its unique river stone floor.

When the mood strikes, there is plenty to do! We are 10 min from Port Clyde, with dockside dining, kayaking, and the ferry to Monhegan Island. In 15 min you can be in Rockland, known for its unique shops, art galleries, movies, festivals, and the noted Farnsworth Museum. A few minutes further, and you are in scenic Camden.

I'm sure you will agree - our Maine vacation home is the perfect getaway!

Very comfortable house, fine setting

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed on midcoast Maine and Penobscot Bay many times, and this house is among the most comfortable that we've rented -- spacious and airy, with a fine kitchen, good bedrooms, and deck where we spent much of our time. The area is fun to explore, though on this trip we spent most of our time just hanging out, for which the house served very well. Tim was helpful, answering questions both before and during our stay, and contact with the outside world met our needs with Wi-fi and the house telephone. We'd be very happy to stay again!

Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our 11 and 12 year olds and stayed for a week. Tim has done a great job remodeling the old general store that serviced the quarry, and the house is beautiful. Great find of the trip was the quarry across the street. Kids spent hours jumping off the cliff face into the fathomless pit of fresh water (and this was typically after spending hours at Drift Inn Beach)! Lots of fun and a great place to stay.

Perfect Mid-Coast Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a three-generational family group (5 adults and a baby), and this house was perfect for our week on the coast. Located on a quiet dead-end road with views of the bay and out to sea, it is only a few minutes' drive to Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde, and close to Owls Head, Thomaston, and Rockland. The house was in excellent condition -- the rooms were comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped for serious cooking, and the deck and upstairs balcony lovely spots for relaxing. Tim was very accommodating and responsive, and we didn't have any problems at all during our blissful stay. Definitely look forward to returning!

We absolutely love this house . This house is so very comfortable and provides for all

amenities needed for cooking, dining, and clean-up, from lobster dinners to burgers on the grill. The bedrooms are lovely and spacious, bathrooms are the same. We feel it is very well maintained and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at the Rockland Cafe, breakfast at Port Clyde and the lovely farmers markets at various villages. Our dealings with the owner could not have been easier. He is very responsive and accommodating. We have been there 3 times and can't wait to return next year.

Perfect Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We found Ocean View Retreat to be everything promised and more! It was perfect for our multi-generational family with plenty of room to spread out and find a quiet retreat if needed or enjoy time together. The fact that it was clean, well equipped and in a peaceful neighborhood scored big points. We were most grateful and pleased that Tim was willing to work with us on our dates and be so accommodating.

One of the best features of the property was the ability to walk to the quarry. We enjoyed the solitude and indescribable beauty and found the complexity of the rock formations to be a great reminder of the intricacy and attention to detail of God's plan and provision.

Our favorite outings were tied between Captain Jack's Lobster Boat Tour in Rockland and our drive through Acadia Park. Both should not be missed.

We highly recommend this property and would love to return.

If you are looking for a relaxing week in an incredibly comfortable home with lots of fun things to do nearby, I have the place for you.

From the well-equipped kitchen to the spacious bathrooms to the very comfortable beds in beautifully decorated bedrooms, this is a place you will be very happy you chose.

The views are amazing. From a large deck you can see the well-tended back yard and the water down below. These beautiful views are also available from the upstairs bedrooms, sitting room, and the comfortable seats placed at the entrance to the deck. (Add in a full moon which we experienced on our last night and you will be in heaven.)

The dishwasher, washer and dryer, generous-sized towels, and soft sheets and blankets all combine to make your stay relaxing and luxurious.

Be sure to see Bobby Joe about getting the best lobsters you have ever tasted. Sights that we enjoyed were the Owls Head Lighthouse and State Park, the Breakwater Winery, Port Clyde where we took the Puffin boat trip, the Camden State Park and Mount Battie, and the town of Camden where there are beautiful shops, benches for boat watching, and great restaurants with water views.

We highly recommend that you choose 255125 as the location for one of the best Maine vacations you can ever hope to have.
