A special boating adventure without ever leaving the dock. (not a charter boat)
Imagine relaxing on the deck, inhaling pure ocean air and nautical vibes, drink in hand, the freshest oysters on the table, lobsters in the pot, enjoying your own private sunset!
NEBI has the comfort of a home, a 360 degree view of the Damariscotta River. She is docked at Schooner Landing Restaurant and Marina, just 2 min walking distance from charming restaurants, galleries and a short drive to gorgeous light houses, walking trails and beaches.
No previous boating experience required. The use of two kayaks and a canoe is included. You’ll love my place because ... well, who wouldn't want to experience living on a beautiful yacht in Maine?

About Olga Oros & Chip Holmes
What I do depends on the season and the location. During the summer months in Maine I run Damariscotta River Cruises with my partner, Captain Chip, who was born and raised in Maine, meet amazing people, film, take photos, learn a lot, have fun and tend my organic garden. In the cold months I'm back in New York City and hibernate in the editing room creating documentary films. And somewhere in between I visit my family in Budapest and friends in other parts of the world.

The boat is as pictured and surprising very large for a couple. My husband and I choose to stay in Damaricotta as it was half way between Portland and The Lobster Festival. There is an amazing butcher shop and seafood shop next to the boat dock you must see and was a delightful surprise. The only drawback was the mosquitoes which prevented us from sitting outside the boat. We were greeted with a wonderful bottle of wine, cheese and fruit as a welcome which was also a nice surprise. Olga was very helpful with getting the stove to work and recommending places to see. Maine is truly a beautiful place to visit and I look forward to coming back.

This is January, 2017. Snow covers the boats and there is ice on the Damariscotta River but Chip and I are working diligently to make Mazu II a fantastic and very unique vacation experience for you in one of the prettiest coastal towns in Maine.
We hope to share the magic with you this summer wether you stay on Mazu, the Bed&Boat or Mazu II, the floating hotel (we are looking for a better fitting name for her). Thank you. Olga & Chip
The Twin Villages of Damariscotta - Newcastle conveniently located only 2 min. off of the major highway, Route 1, in Midcoast Maine. Damariscotta, the 'river of many fishes' in Abernaki Indian, is named for the alewives that annually migrate the Damariscotta River and then 'climb' the amazing fish ladder at Damariscotta Mills in order to spawn in the Lake. The river is also one of the northernmost mating grounds of the primitive and marvelous horseshoe crab. And these waters support seals, ospreys, bald eagles, king fishers, great blue herons, mackerel and stripe bass, just to name a few. Humans have also worked this river for about 13,000 years. Their most famous legacy forms immense, white oyster shell mounds on the riverbanks. These shell heaps are testament to the oyster beds that once produced shellfish one foot in diameter. Today the river produces farmed oysters and mussels you can sample in local restaurants. Mazu, your boat hotel, docks at Schooner Landing Marina where you can paddle our kayaks or canoe from, along the tidal Damariscotta River to catch the magical wildlife, timeless mansions and the working waterfront of oyster farmers, lobstermen and fishermen and visit the marvelous state park, Dodge Point, and its beach. During the day you also have the option of taking an Oyster Frams & Seal Watching Tour and sample the world famous oysters with Damariscotta River Cruises, and in the evening receive a complementary drink on us during the Happy Hour Cruise. Another day maybe walk around the twin villages to shop, visit art galleries, dine in one of the fabulous restaurants or take a short sightseeing trip to the historic lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, Pemaquid Beach, and the Colonial Fort Henry Williams, Boothbay, Round Pond, South Bristol with its swing bridge. If you are up for some outlet shopping, Damariscotta is only 45 min from Freeport's L L Beans and other stores. Portland is 1 hour drive and 45 min to Rockland / Camden.
Or You might want to plan your vacation around one of the fun festivals in town. May has the Alewife Festival, the Pirate Festival is in June, last Sunday of Sept is the Oyster Festival and Columbus Day Weekend is the Pumpkin Festival & Regatta.
