The Porchside is a one bedroom, one bath dwelling located steps from all the beauty that Corea has to offer. A comfy living room just steps away from the galley kitchen with all the basics, includes a high top table for two for casual dining. Upstairs you’ll find a large bedroom with water views through breezy windows and a 3/4 bath just down the hall. This house was originally a single family home that was separated years ago but in 2007 re-zoned for two family. The Porchside is heated with 2 zone oil heat for chilly fall nights. You have a private entrance and as the name implies, you’ll have a nice wide porch from which you can watch the village pass you by! Read, write or browse the internet. Write your memoir or spend a couple of weeks painting the coastline using the Porchside as your base. The Porchside has a monthly rental rate if you’re looking to spend a longer visit to the area.
There is nothing more “Maine" than Corea! When you think of the postcard image of Maine, you’re thinking of Corea. In fact, you CAN find Corea on postcards and calendars. Corea is a working harbor where the road dead ends in 180 degrees of gorgeous and a lobster co-op at the end of the line.
The Porchside is kitty-corner from our other rental The Boathouse at Corea Harbor. We’ve owned this farm house since 1970 and now the Porchside offers a nicely appointed budget friendly vacation for a single person or a couple. Corea is located on the Schoodic Peninsula in a cluster of small villages which collectively make up the area known as Gouldsboro. Winter Harbor a short drive away is home to the Schoodic portion of Acadia National Park and has wonderful hikes, easy biking and un-real views. Food, farmers markets, organic farm, art center and of course open ocean, beaches (yes, the water is as cold as you’ve heard) and many ways to enjoy your time in a gentle, low key environment.
Downeast Maine is not about glitz and glamour but if a simple, easy to live in accommodation in a relaxed mellow environment works for you, you’ll fit right in.
