Castine cottage description

This vintage 1940's camp offers a location that is central to the charming Castine village, the bustling waterfront, and the trailhead to the stunning Witherle Woods. It's also right around the corner from The Manor, and perfect for wedding overflow or a nightcap. Stroll or bike to the village where live jazz, fresh-baked goodies, and towering elms await, or rock your worries away on the large screen porch, where the only thing that breaks the quiet is the occasional chime of bell buoys in the bay. The south-facing, spacious flagstone patio is perfect for sunbathing or dining and looks toward a field. Come unwind in this simple, cozy-feeling, yet spacious, fully furnished camp and enjoy the beauty and rich history of Castine.

              Castine is rich in history and architecture, with some of the oldest, towering American Elm trees in the country. It's impossible to stray too far from the water and a lighthouse crowns the ledge at the top of the road.

              Other Activities: ping pong, beach chairs, and tandem bike in garage, Castine golf and tennis club nearby.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Aaron and Emilia are artists and adventurers who live in Gorham, Maine. Emilia has been a touring, performing artist (singer/songwriter) for the past decade. Aaron co-founded Rippleffect, a non-profit that provides learning adventures in living classrooms to Maine youth.

              Why the Owner Chose Castine:
              'We fell in love with Castine early on in their relationship. For years, we ran a non-profit that hosted an annual Kayak Regatta that began in Castine and meandered throughout stunning Penobscot Bay. We also spent their honeymoon in Castine, as it's a very romantic place. When the opportunity to buy a property right next to our dearest friend came up, we jumped on it!'

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              With towering American Elms that shade historic, salt-air streets, it's no wonder that Downeast Magazine rated Castine one of 'Maine's 10 Prettiest Villages.' For a small village off the beaten path, Castine has an incredible amount of amenities, from golf, to sailing, to amazing food and live music every night of the summer season! LaTour Street is special because it's in the village of Castine (on the neck), but away from the bustle of Main Street. It's incredibly tranquil and quiet, but all the amenities of Castine are a stroll away. Also, the trailhead to the Witherle Woods, one of Castine's (and Maine's) treasures is at the top of the street. A renovated, 1940's camp, this house is quirky, campy, and fun. The huge stone patio and screened porch provide great space for outdoor living and entertaining.
