Why Jeff Prostovich and Sharon Lovejoy chose Damariscotta
The first time I saw downtown Damariscotta I felt as though I had come home. The small village of old sea captain’s houses, the perfect New England churches and steeples and mid 19th century brick buildings huddled near the river touched my heart. One building in particular stayed in my mind. For decades, 112 Main Street was the apothecary shop for the town. Years later, the pharmacy was taken over by a country store (now a gallery) and the top two floors were turned into apartments. When the chance came to buy the building, we wandered through the floors up to the top level. It felt like a Paris (don’t laugh) apartment. Maybe it was the 33 steps, but I loved the high ceiling in the stairwell, the moldings, the funky 30's kitchen, the living room, and the two bedrooms. We had often talked about buying a small hotel to outfit with comfortable furniture and beds, antiques, art, and lots of wonderful books. When Jeff asked me what we should call it, I thought of the book Comfort Found in Good Old Books by George Hamlin Fitch. Written in 1911 by the book reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle, Fitch’s book highlighted the most beloved of the books he turned to for comfort. He believed, as do I, that cultivating a love of reading is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Books bring the world to your easy chair; they give you wings; and they are ever faithful friends whether you need inspiration, edification, or consolation. Fitch believed in the verity of the old quote by Thomas Carlyle, “My books are friends that never fail me.” When our first guests checked into Comfort Found, they said, 'This is a HOME,' which was exactly how we wanted them to feel. Jeff and I would like to invite you to experience the real taste of New England in the warm and welcoming rooms of our dear 'Comfort Found.' I think you'll feel, as did our first guests, that you've stepped into a well-loved home. Thee is welcome here friend.

Great in-town location; spacious apartment
Charm and location extraordinaire!
We loved this charming apartment with its spacious living area, but the location was beyond outstanding. Steps from everything mid-Coast Maine has to offer...restaurants, water, views. If you enjoy books as we do, you will be in heaven!
We loved staying at COMFORT FOUND LITERARY LODGING in downtown Damariscotta. I’m a book person and the apartment is filled with an eclectic selection of top quality books! There are many comfortable spots for reading and writing! Beds are comfortable and bedrooms tastefully decorated with antiques and books. Kitchen had everything we needed for meals at home. The apartment was squeaky clean and very welcoming. We hope to return when we can stay longer. The location couldn’t be better; downtown, but beautiful river views. The hosts were welcoming and attentive to our needs. Thank you!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and our selection of books. We welcome your return anytime.
