Overview

Harrington Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The waterfront lodge, spacious and comfortable, was built on two acres from a Beaver Mountain Log Home kit and completed in 2010. The precision milled parts fit like furniture and gives our home the feel of a log house with all of the modern comforts. With more than 2000 square feet and two decks, there is plenty of room for the whole family, even on a rainy day. It is located on West Carrying Place Cove in Harrington Bay and there are no other houses within view.

Prepare lobster or your favorite Downeast dish in the beautiful modern kitchen with a granite counter top and all high quality appliances. The dining room and the ‘great’ room are featured on the first floor with beautiful bay views while you eat or relax. In addition, two bedrooms (twin beds in one and a bunk in the other) along with their own bath are also on the first floor. The master bedroom (king size bed) and master bath are on the second floor. The deck on the second floor is accessed from the master bedroom and is a perfect place for a quiet read or a morning cup of coffee. Sunsets from this view can be spectacular. There is also a gaming loft/balcony on this level which overlooks the living room and is stocked with many family games, cards, and books.

The lodge has baseboard hot water heat and with the cool ocean breeze and full screens has never been in need of air conditioning. We have limited the electronics to increase family time and to enhance the peaceful retreat aspect of our home. While there is no landline, cable, or wifi, there is good cell service, which eliminates any feeling of isolation. There is also wireless Internet at the town library

For outside activity the ocean side yard is large enough for a game of catch or croquet and there is a basketball hoop in the driveway. The sheltered cove is a perfect place for canoe/kayak trips and windsurfing; for the ambitious boater the beach front is also a perfect launch site for longer sea kayak trips into Harrington Bay and the shores of the open ocean. The path to the water is short, less than 100 ft. at most tides. The public boat launch is only one mile from the house and there is no charge to launch your power or sailboat.

Hiking trails and walking the shoreline are also easily available in the area. It is also a pleasure to view the local bird populations, including a pair of nesting bald eagles and their young.

There are many restaurants in the area and a list of where to buy lobster and other special places will be emailed to you as an attachment. Another copy will be left at the lodge. If you are interested in some of the more well known attractions, Harrington is only 33 miles down east of Schoodic Point, and 51 miles down east of Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. In the other direction, Lubec and the Roosevelt Campobello International Park are only 53 miles from Harrington.

Balsam and Ocean Air

  • 5 of 5

The first impression you'll get is the fresh ocean air with warm hints of balsam surrounding this secluded cabin. We found it to be a very clean home, with a well stocked and efficient kitchen. Great kayaking at high tide, and with each low tide we had the opportunity to watch the local fishermen dig for clams and worms, just beyond them in the deeper channels we could see lobster boats hauling traps. Each evening we enjoyed gorgeous sunsets! Great place to "unplug". There is no wi-fi or cable, so be prepared for an electronics withdrawal period, you'll be glad you did.
