Why Marcy chose Maine

I 'camped' in Maine as a child and always wanted to live by the sea. I choose Brunswick Maine as my home due to it's location and proximity to amenities.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A BIRDSEYE VIEW OF PORTLAND

Portland is home to an eclectic mix of Old New England and new urban arts and entertainment. The Portland Museum of Art, and the heart of Portland’s Arts District offer diverse experiences. Coffee, fine dining, and light fare all can be found just a few blocks from your front door. Portland is Maine’s cultural center and much of this culture can be experienced in the Old Port, a historic district full of cobblestone streets, and antique stores. While there you can experience our eclectic and hip music scene ranging from Jazz to bluegrass. If you want... take in a dance club. Some of Maine's most exquisite beaches are just a 15 minute car ride away from the Old Port District.

A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF BRUNSWICK

This wonderful coastal area offers fine dining, art galleries and shopping. Nearby Bowdoin College offers cultural activities and lectures. Only 25 miles from Portland, and approximately 120 miles from Boston, the Topsham/Brunswick area brings together elements of both city and country living, with seaside opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast.

A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF BATH

Long known as the 'City of Ships,' Bath, Maine finds its soul and identity

in shipbuilding. Located just 20 minutes Down East from Brunswick Bath is Nestled along the sparkling Kennebec River. It is a small jewel of a city with the perfect mix of old seafaring history and vibrant daily life. From its architecture and cultural offerings to its urban downtown, Bath's shipbuilding roots define its character.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking for a relaxing and fun-filled vacation in Maine, I highly recommend a stay at Sea Grass Farm. The property is delightfully private and picturesque. It is located on a large wooded lot with waterfront access to a coastal inlet that is perfect for kayaking and other water sports. Just a stone’s throw away is the charming downtown Brunswick and not much further is the historic town of Bath. While you might never want to leave the calming serenity of the property, the close proximity to Portland and Freeport make for wonderful day trips to explore some of Maine’s best museums and shopping outlets. Our stay at Sea Grass Farm was the perfect getaway for my family (daughter, husband and two dachshunds) with something for everyone!

Modern clean spacious

  • 4 of 5

If you were dreaming of a Maine cottage inter woods, this is it And so much more. It is a modern clean spacious house overlooking a lovely cove. Kayaks are right there for using. It has plenty of room with big bedrooms and comfy beds. There is a big granite kitchen and best of all a covered porch with a wonderful outdoor fireplace that we spent many an evening enjoying dinner & a fire. It's a five minute drive to Brunswick & all that it offers. Marcy is close by for help in anything that you need.

Beautiful Sea Grass Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We rented this perfect home for a family gathering over a week. It was more than we could have wished for. It was well equipped for 4+ people staying over, lovely for long dinners on the large porch with a fire most nights eating leisurely meals , and playing games with our gatherings of family. Marcy couldn't be more accommodating and caring about making the stay easy and fun. We brought one kayak and there are 2 more onsite. The location at the mouth of estuaries was amazing. We saw Bald Eagles and Great Blue Herons each time we paddled. The house itself is beautiful and a really nice layout for a larger group. We could not have hoped for a better place to be. We will return! Thank you Marcy!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What wonderful time in Brunswick. This town is right in the middle of everything we were looking for in Maine.

Our house that we rented was great. It had everything we needed in a vacation home. It was equipped with all our needs. The beds were excellent, the set up of the house was great, and what a wonderful wrap around porch where we ate outside and could sit outside when we were not exploring Maine.

When we were not eating out in Brunswick and Portland, the grill was ideal for cooking out.

Marcie, who lives right next door was there for anything we needed.

We were there for 2 weeks and could have been there for another 2 weeks.

Thank you Marcie.

Very nice short term stay

  • 5 of 5

During our holidays in New England we spent one week at the Sea Grass farm.

We loved the spacious and comfortable house. Also it was a perfect starting point for day trips.

Summer escape

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an escape from the Florida summer heat, and Maine seemed the perfect solution. Although we spent only two weeks at Sea Grass Farm, it felt like home while we were there. The house is very comfortable, and Marcy and Joel were great resources during our stay. The house is conveniently located for day trips to lots of interesting places. Our dog also loved the house and the large property, which allowed her the freedom to be off leash . Although we did have some encounters with ticks, we had given the dog a tick medication before we got there, so they didn't cause any problems for her.

Great long term stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for seven months while we first looked for and then bought a house in Brunswick. This was the perfect location for us in that it was convenient to everything, literally everything. While not house-hunting we went to lectures and sporting events at Bowdoin and played tennis at Maine Pines, both within five minutes, and did many other Brunswick activities. (And there's a back road route to LL Bean's, fifteen minutes away!) We stayed at Marcy's rental from fall to spring and found the house great for the "off season", warm and easy. I loved the soapstone wood stove, including splitting wood! Marcy was very helpful to us with regard to running the house and the usual newcomers' questions, as well as helping us understand the local real estate possibilities. All of our questions were answered. Our Dauchshund, Henry and Marcy's Dauchsund, Rocket became good friends. The only downer was that Sea Grass Farm wasn't available for us to buy! If we weren't now Brunswick residents ourselves, we'd want to stay again.
