Property description

This is 'the way life should be'... Camp Card Cove is a comfortable shingle-style Maine camp/cottage on large private 2 acre lot in Harpswell. Located at the end of a long dead-end gravel driveway, this architecturally designed Maine waterfront camp is yours to enjoy. Its location is peaceful and private on beautiful Card Cove, a protected deep-water anchorage, just a few minutes sail from gorgeous Casco Bay. The entire level lot and over two hundred feet of owned waterfront and private dock are at your disposal. Fish, barbecue, relax and rest as you gaze out on the cove and breathe in the salty fresh air. The fall is the perfect time to spend in Maine, enjoy hikes and day trips without the crowds. Explore the beauty of Mid Coast Maine, including Booth bay Harbor, which is only 45 minutes away. Relax at night with the gas fireplace indoors, or outdoors with our fire pit.

The home features 4 bedrooms ( Master, bedroom one and two and loft )and 3 bathrooms for maximum comfort with minimum hassle, there is a total of 2600 square feet of living space. This is a newer construction home, not a fixer upper, in immaculate condition. We can send additional pictures of Quahog Bay, the grounds or the interior of the cottage if you like, just ask. Why stay at hotel or Inn when you can stay at your own private oceanfront cottage? The home also features a separate 'kids suite' with two sets of bunk beds on the second floor with TV/DVD and separate bathroom. The kids can be close by yet the parents can have their privacy.

The master bedroom opens onto a private second floor balcony with ocean views to Card Cove and Quahog Bay. Sip some wine and watch the sailboats and lobster men from your private porch. There is another bedroom on the second floor, as well as one on the main floor, perfect for guests that find it difficult to maneuver upstairs. A large but cozy living room with gas fireplace and TV as well as a screened in porch and outdoor deck complete the perfect vacation! The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and glasses. The view from the kitchen is incredible, and most likely you would want to cook at the house, instead of frequenting restaurants!! However, if you choose to eat out the towns of Brunswick and Bath have some very fine restaurants and Portland's Old Port is an easy 35 minute drive.

Boaters take note...there is a mooring and dock available for use with prior arrangements so sail to the home or bring your boat and explore Casco Bay. We also include the use of a small dinghy and two kayaks, a 10.6 foot 'Precision' and a 13.8 foot Old Town 'Loon'. Bring your own if you prefer or make it easy and fun and just use ours!

Imagine sailing on your day-sailor in protected Card Cove . Sail the bay and smell the salt air.

Late summer and Fall are more beautiful than ever. Watch the changing leaves, eat lobster in the cool fall air.

Don't forget to plan ahead for the summer..peak weeks book well ahead of the summer so reserve your week now.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Fall rental inquiries are starting to pick up so reserve early!!! Ask about our multi week discounts. JUST E-MAIL US!

Thank you,
John and Karen

Guest Comments:

We really enjoyed your house and in spite of all the pictures you have on your website there is no way to do justice to such a lovely house. The sunrise over the water and watching all the lobster boats were both beautiful.

Regards, Judy

Location

Car: Recommended

Sailors/Boaters may have use of on site mooring if needed. Please ask for details. Owner must be notified and prior approval obtained.The Town of Harpswell, located on Casco Bay, Is a short scenic ride from Portland, Freeport, Bath and Boothbay Maine. Harpswell is the unspoiled coastal community that is accessible by way of the beautiful Bowdoin College town of Brunswick. Harpswell is a unique coastal community which recently celebrated its 250th birthday. For over 100 years Harpswell has been a mecca for vacationers seeking a saltwater environment, a serene way of life, and an abundance of natural beauty. Its 216 miles of coastline consists of Harpswell Neck, the three large islands of

Sebascodegan (Great Island), Orr’s, and Bailey, which are connected by bridges, the most notable being The Cribstone Bridge, and a scattering of over 200 smaller islands accessible only by boat. With some of the few remaining working harbors on the Maine coast, it offers an authenticity of which we are proud.

Harpswell has it all! Light houses, Ocean views, walking trails, beaches, Historical sites, working lobster harbors and marinas all here in the Mid Coast Maine region.
