Property description

Enjoy spectacular bold, open ocean and St John's Bay views while listening to the Pemaquid Light Bell Buoy. This is one of the original cottages situated on an ideal lot on a private road. The 'Little Red House' has been meticulously maintained and is ready to help you relax and enjoy life the way it should be.

Read a book in front of the fireplace, walk out your front door onto the rocks, nap listening to the crashing surf or take a short walk to the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse. The house enjoys a prevailing Southwest breeze off of the ocean keeping you cool and bug free most of the time. No matter what you choose to do, you will enjoy the sweeping views & the best Maine has to offer!

Walk along the beautiful shoreline to the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse (back of the Maine commemorative quarter). Take a short drive to Pemaquid Beach for some sand and sun or visit historic Colonial Pemaquid State Park. At the end of the day, relax and enjoy eating lobsters on the deck while watching the sunset over the water!

Email me for more pictures and a Google Earth link or call for more information about the area and our piece of heaven on earth.

Availability calendar is kept up to date. More than 2/3 of my renters return the next year, so if you are interested in next season ask to be put on my waiting list.

Thanks for looking - Rich & Lee

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Pemaquid Point:
We rented this home for about 10 years (3 to 4 weeks each summer) before we bought it. We have been coming to the area since we were both children.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You can't beat the view, particularly at sunset or the location. Very quiet / low traffic area. The cabin was built in 1930 and retains that character without being rustic. We keep it super clean (we personally do most of the turnovers), well equipped, and the addition (2008/2009) looks on the outside like it has always been there, but the new bath, laundry, outdoor shower, are all high end / luxurious. You have the best of both worlds. Maine in 1930 but with modern luxuries.
