Overview

Portland and Casco Bay Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

This property is on the tip of Basin Point in Harpswell Maine. This Casco Bay Victorian is as classic as you can get. Built in 1912 it has remained in the same family from generation to generation. There are many aspects of the property that is still original. Such as the bathroom with the claw foot tub and pull chain toilet. The copper hot water tank remains (only for looks) as well. The view to the south is of halfway rock, Eagle island and the home of Admiral Perry. The home still has its original slate roof and wraparound porch where you will enjoy family gatherings and return year after year. The views of the sunsets are breathtaking. Inside you will feel the history as you enter the original kitchen that has a Kenmore electric range with a gas heater attached on top. The dining room has ample seating and antiques as well as the large living-room. Downstairs are two bedrooms with a bathroom between them. Upstairs has 3 more bedrooms and a full bath. Throughout the house are beautiful wood ceilings and many walls and built in shelves and storage. There is also a water-view from every room in the house. You are located next to the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant as well as Erica's Seafood where you can get fresh lobster to cook back the the house. There is plenty of land to explore as well as having water access where you can kayak around the nearby islands. You can rent a boat slip at the marina next door if you need. Dogs are excepted at this property. There was a stair case added to the west side of the peninsula. This allows access to a tidal beach area with Maine Coastal Sand. This allows more privacy for your family with gorgeous views of lobster boats, soaring eagles and Whale Boat island.

Great place for families!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property with a group of our college friends and it was just what we needed. Most of us have small children and this place was well equipped to keep us happy and safe (gates on the porch, toy chest upstairs, big tub and even sippy cups in the cupboard!). The large yard overlooking the point was a great place to play. We loved watching all the happenings at the marina down the hill and enjoyed the sandy beach at Stovers point just a short drive from the house. Ocean views from nearly every window doesn't hurt either!

Eternal Water and sky

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely lovely place, a homey house at the end of the earth. Cozy, old fashioned and very welcoming. We were 8 adults and 3 children and the house held us all happily. The perfect porch and the endless lawn brought us outside over and over. This house is not fancy, but it is elegant and classy. And I will dream of Erika's lobster rolls for the rest of my life.

Just what we wanted! Spacious, The water's edge!

  • 5 of 5

A great place for our family reunion gathering from Paris, France, Oregon, CA,NY and NH. Plenty of space for all.

End of the point, sunrise and sunset, even a double rainbow. We loved Erica's lobsters several times! ...and the Dolphin

Restaurant. Perhaps the most joy came from our son's little dog who made friends with the dogs at the marina!

Needless to say, Green Victoria was perfect for us. Yes, we would recommend it to anyone who loves the end of the road, looking at the ocean/bay!
