3 bedroom cape, 1.5 baths situated on the water's edge; sleeps 6
Check THIS one out! What a spot! Situated almost at the tip of the peninsula Gun Point on Great Island, this location offers spectacular views of Casco Bay. Facing southwest, one can behold outstanding sunsets behind Orr's and Bailey Islands across Gun Point Cove, and admire the vastness of the open sea of Casco Bay beyond, all while soaking in the warmth of the setting sun. The 3 bedroom well kept and modern cape is on the ocean's edge. The movement of the tidal waters will soothe and relax you making your getaway one you will not soon forget. For children of all ages, the bathing cove, formed by the ledges and right in the front, offers great fun for swimming at high tide and exploring tidal pools for sea creatures at low tide not to leave out the collection of seashells of all shapes and sizes. And for the older, experienced swimmers, there is a dock shared with owners for deep water swimming during any tide. It is a very quiet spot yet close to public beaches. Sight seeing drives through quaint coastal towns is a must. You will not be disappointed. Come and experience what living on the Maine coast is all about!

Best Maine vacation
A beautiful, peaceful water's edge home in a culturally rich area.
All needs are met and the additional second floor bedrooms/bath allow privacy on both floors.
We look forward to our fourth vacation in August.
Amazing views and so peaceful. Home was immaculate.
Loved kayaking and watching the lobsterman and nature.
Private ocean front true as advertised.
Our family stay was two weeks the end of July 2017. The first week we filled the house with five adults and a five month old. The second week it was just the retired two seniors of the family as the rest had to return to Pennsylvania and their jobs. A wonderful way to have a vacation both ways!!
Our house had everything we needed and could imagine for all of us to be comfortable and feeling at home.
Now some more amazing points. The views and sounds of the ocean out our doors were very special.
Lobster boats some colorfully decorated with the soft sounds of the surf when they take in a catch.
The most beautiful sunsets with a golden, pink and red across the ocean. We watched the sunset from the beach at the house property.
More about the beach at the house property. We pick seaglass, shells and stones to fill a jar. No one was disappointed because we all could find our favorites right on our beach.
We spotted a white egret twice, osprey, and a harbor seal fishing for his lunch behind a fishing boat. A friendly seagull that perched at the end of the house dock he was fun to keep track of too.
Thank you very much Lilliette!
Peaceful and relaxing. The owners are very accommodating and nice. So nice to be right by the shore and smell the ocean air. My husband fished off the dock and caught mackerel, and we bought the freshest lobsters from a lobsterman! Wish the weather had been a little nicer, but tat's nature! If you want a quiet retreat, this is it!
Wonderful time in Harpswell!
A perfect get away location with great water access for swimming, etc. Liliette was very helpful and informative, the house was well equipped with everything we needed. Great location to island hop or to antique along the coast. Great restaurants on the islands along with in Brunswick only 20 min away. Would definitely recommend.
Great family break
This is an idyllic spot with beautiful views. Our kids loved the beach, swimming, rock-pooling and fishing; we enjoyed the peace. The property is fully equipped with everything you need for this type of holiday and the owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful. One of the best places we have stayed at in this truly wonderful corner of Maine.
