Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This private two bedroom, two bath home is in a world of its own, yet only minutes from Rt. 1. Boasting one of the most beautiful, unobstructed views of the Sheepscot River available, the home comes with full kitchen, high-speed WIFI, phone with free domestic long-distance, and, due to a request from a couple of past guests, cable TV!

Fully equipped modern kitchen includes all the appliances you'd expect (refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, electric range/convection oven, microwave) and some you wouldn't (coffee maker, panini maker, blender, lobster pot, beater, toaster oven) . Last year, we have also added a new washer/dryer, so you can go home with clean clothes. Detergent and dryer sheets provided.

Home has monstrous outdoor deck with equally monstrous 6 burner grille and table with seating for six. All bedding, towels, plates, cups, glasses, cookware and tableware provided. Every room has a view, including newly built large sunroom with two couches and additional access to deck. Two bedrooms, maximum occupancy 4 people.

Dock with deep-water float (14 foot at low tide) capable of holding boats up to 24 foot is available for use at guest risk. Dock also has fresh water for boat and fish cleaning.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING JULY AND AUGUST HOUSE IS RENTED BY THE WEEK ONLY, WITH CHANGEOVER DAYS ON SATURDAY.

About Kathy and Bob

No matter where we travel in the world, we always look forward to returning to our little house on the river. Peaceful, scenic and minutes away from great fishing, bird watching or just cruising the backwaters of coastal Maine, this house is truly a sanctuary from the outside world.

Kathy and Bob purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy and Bob chose Wiscasset

Waterfront property, at least with a decent view and not miles and miles from civilization is something not easily found in Maine. We fell in love with Cowseagan Narrows the moment we saw it. Just coming down the drive will be enough to make you fall in love with it, too.

What makes this house unique

Magnificent views, secluded setting off lightly travelled road and moments to shopping and dining. Ultra convenient by boat or car to Boothbay Harbor.

Excellent location & generous hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Well-located to visit mid-coastal Maine. Beautiful, private setting to return to each day w/ comfortable & spacious indoor and outdoor spaces. Hosts are generous - they make sure you have everything you need (from food/coffee to start your day to laundry detergent and basic toiletries) - and they respond quickly to any queries you might have.

Beautiful house, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The house and views were even better than the pictures would leave you to believe. The house was clean and had everything you could ask for. Bob was also very quick to reply and helpful whenever I reached out during our stay. We had a great time and would absolutely stay again.

Perfect home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Kathy and Bob are wonderful hosts. Their home is lovely - very clean and a kitchen that is very well equipped. We had a wonderful stay and every day when we would head out to visit different areas (don't miss Breakwater Vineyards or the transportation museum both in Owls Head), we felt like were coming home as their home is just so comfortable and inviting. They left some nice snacks for our arrival and Kathy even made a delicious zucchini bread for us! I would highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for someplace to unwind and just sit and read a book on the beautiful deck overlooking the river. Thank you, Kathy and Bob, for a great week.

Great very comfortable,

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful away from it all yet close to rt 1 so easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Close to Boothbay harbor that we loved. The home was very comfortable, the owners have thought of everything. If I could I would come back every year.
