Port Clyde house description

Eiders gather along the shore in early summer to shelter their young and teach them to dive for tiny shellfish. Lobstermen haul their traps just off the shore. A pebble beach and tide pools to explore are at the water’s edge. This is truly the rock-bound coast, and it is all in view from the oceanfront cottage we call 'Eider Cove'.

The house is privately situated down a winding drive. Its unique architectural features are designed to take maximum advantage of the panoramic ocean and island views. An ample deck stretches along the water side. The living room with cathedral ceiling and 16-foot window wall, dining area, kitchen,
bath with shower, and laundry/utility room are on the first floor. Two bedrooms, with queen bed in the master and twin beds in the second bedroom, both with ocean views, and full bath are upstairs. There is a sleeping alcove with sofa bed off the living room and a sleeping loft accessible by ladder from the twin bedroom.

Port Clyde is a fishing village at the end of the Saint George peninsula. The Saint George River and Muscongus Bay are on the west side of the peninsula and the approaches to Penobscot Bay on the east. Lobstering and fishing dominate the commerce, the economy and the conversation. The village is a 10 to 15 minute walk from the house.

Port Clyde harbor is the base of operations for the second largest ground fishing fleet in Maine. The recently formed Mid-Coast Fishermen's Coop has established the first community supported fishery called 'Port Clyde Fresh Catch' which assures a supply of the freshest fish to local restaurants and markets.

Port Clyde hasn’t been overrun by tourists, but beginning in June there is a healthy influx of summer folk including many artists. You will find a general store, a small hotel, guest houses, restaurants, two churches, and art galleries in the village. There is also a kayak rental outfit which provides guided tours.

There is lots of activity in the harbor, including the ferry to Monhegan Island, 10 miles offshore. A day trip to the island is an experience to be remembered. At the very end of the peninsula is the Marshall Point lighthouse and museum, a favorite destination of our guests. Drift Inn Beach is just a few minutes walk from the house.

Tenants Harbor is a few miles away with a couple of small markets, several restaurants. a nice hotel, and a harbor that is a popular stop for cruising yachts. Rockland is within 30 minutes, and Rockport and Camden are a 40-minute drive. They offer museums, many restaurants, shopping, concerts, festivals and windjammer cruises. The Farnsworth Art Museum and Wyeth Center, both in downtown Rockland, display the works of many well known Maine artists, including N. C., Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. The golf course is just west of town.

We look forward to welcoming you to Eider Cove, Port Clyde and mid-coast Maine
