Property type house

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms With Scenic Views Of the Damariscotta River - sleeps 8

Splendid westerly views and gorgeous sunsets to be enjoyed by family and friends from this tasteful Cape's spacious deck, living and dining rooms, sunroom and kitchen. Enjoy the wonderful ambiance of this easy-living floor plan with first floor bedroom, bath, laundry area, living room with fireplace and built-ins, large dining area with wide window seat and dining table with room for 10 people. Upstairs there are two more bedrooms ( three twins and one queen) and a bathroom with a shower (no tub). The property has incredible perennial gardens with a path that leads down to the waterfront. At the waterfront, there is an Island owned by the Damariscotta River Association, which can be walked to during low tide. The island is a great place to swim during high tide. This property has a basement flat with its independent entrance that is occupied by the property manager. The property manager works during the day, and you will not see him unless you need his assistance. We have three kayaks and one canoe and rent them out for the entire duration of the stay for a small fee. You can make arrangements with our property manager (former US coastguard employee) if you want to use them. The property is ideally positioned to explore the coast of Maine via the river, visit Pemaquid lighthouse just a few miles down the road, spend time in the picturesque town of Damariscotta (1.6 miles) or explore further afield by visiting Boothbay Harbor ( 25 minute drive), Bath (20 minute drive) or Camden (40 minute drive). Damariscotta was recently voted the #1 spot to visit in Country Living's article "40 American Towns You Haven't Heard of but Should Visit ASAP". See article at This property is set back from a busy road 129/130, and when the windows are open you can hear the traffic - you don't notice it after some time - but if you're expecting a deafening silence throughout the day then this is not the property for you.

Really enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and very pleasant with an awesome deck and a view of the Damariscotta river. We enjoyed grilling and eating out on the deck as well as going to the neighboring towns of Pemaquid, Waldoboro and Round Pond. A truly delightful part of Maine. Nishad, the owner, was quick to respond to whatever questions we had and very helpful. My only criticisms have to do with the kitchen, which was stocked only with salt and pepper and was otherwise bare. When we have stayed elsewhere, the kitchen has usually been stocked with an array of spices along with other staples like olive oil and ketchup, mustard, soy sauce and the like. It's quite annoying to have to purchase these items - and while not a big thing, it's little touches like this that make people feel well taken care of and cause them to want to come back to a place (just a suggestion, Nishad).

Owner's Response: Thanks, Peter. Some people like that option others don't like the fact that there are used condiments in the fridge. I think the cooking oil may be a good idea. In general, most of our guest stay for one week or longer. Between June and October, we have only three reservations that are under one week. Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the feedback.

Clean, neat, organized, comfortable, spacious

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the 3 nights we recently stayed at this lovely well maintained home near the Damariscotta river. There were many amenities that were provided for us that we did not expect. Having ample paper towels, toilet paper, a working coffee maker, microwave and full kitchen were just some of the pleasantries. The owner was also available to text with any problems or concerns. Other than food, there was nothing necessary to go to the grocery store for, and when we did, it was less than 4 minutes away. Relatively easy access to the Damariscotta river was also nice.

Only criticisms of the property were directions, instructions as to where to find the kayak paddles, life jackets and path to the kayaks. The basement and garage were both locked, and I initially thought these areas were out of bounds, however we discovered they are available as well. There were plenty of bath and hand towels for us to use, but no wash cloths. Garabage disposal needs the owners attention desperately as it had an unpleasant odor if left not closed.

There is a tenant that lives in the basement apartment. We never heard or saw this person, however it was not disclosed in the online property description. There is also a fee for rental of the canoes and kayaks, so be sure to ask about that if you plan to use, which I recommend. You will also need to sign a waiver beforehand for the use of these.

THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING. Something, I expected coming from a warm climate myself. We were kept cool by a mild outside temperature and box fans for every room. We only used the bedroom on the ground floor.

I WOULD MOST DEFINITELY RECCOMEND RENTING THIS PROPERTY. I HAD A GREAT TIME. Would be a great place to celebrate PUMPKINFEST in October each year! I would stay here again.

Be sure to Check out Pemaquid Point, Boothbay Harbor, as well as the Damariscotta River Grill, and perhaps a lobster roll or two at Larson's Lunch Box

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having this couple in our house, they were respectful of our property and left it in good shape. I will respond to a number of criticisms above. We have clearly advertised air conditioning for the living room area only. His statement about air conditioning is incorrect. Maybe what he meant is that there is no central air conditioning - something that is very rare in Maine in properties of this age. In terms of the kayaks, it is an extra that we provide, we haven't indicated in our description that these will be available - maybe we should. To rent a kayak from Damariscotta you have to do it by the hour and it is a lot more expensive that what we offer - $100 for the whole stay. The tenant in the independent flat below usually doubles over as our house manager, but she was a little overwhelmed at work and has since decided not to continue working as the manager. We have now mentioned her in our listing. Thanks for your feedback.

Excellent location for mid-coast

  • 4 of 5

The house was well equipped and clean. The owner, though not nearby, was prompt in answering all questions. It is an excellent location for accessing many mid-coastal tourist attractions. Damariscotta is a very lovely but busy place and the home is on a highly travelled street.

Perfect for a Comfortable Stay - Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Cant beat this location for access to Salt and Fresh Water kayaking, hiking trails (great reference book in the bookshelves) and exploring the amazing fish ladder in Nobleboro. Our second year here - we enjoyed every minute, including the great sunroom for jigsaw puzzling. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Always a pleasure to host this group. This is the second year they have stayed at our house, and without exception, they leave the place just as neat as they found it. Hope to host them again next year. Thank you!
