Welcome to the perfect Maine get-away. This property has a wonderful sense of privacy and seclusion even though you can walk to town. Enjoy the 300 feet of waterfront – the bluff overlooking the cove, the rocky shore, or the shell beach – it’s all yours.
The main floor has a spacious kitchen with patio facing the water, a large dining room, sunny living room, an office/fourth bedroom, the laundry, and a powder room. Upstairs, the house has a full bathroom and three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a sitting area overlooking the cove. The queen beds in the master bedroom and second bedroom have new quilts and bed linens, cozy duvet-covered down comforters, pillow-top mattresses, and plenty of pillows. The third bedroom is designed as a bunk-room for the kids.
We have provided every comfort we can think of to make your stay a perfect one… picture yourself strolling down to the water and call us today! (See more photos on our website.)
More About the Property: A property this large is a rare find right in town. There is a wonderful large field surrounding the house with seasonal wildflowers and wild blueberries and a large mowed lawn for games. Use the shell beach for easy kayak or canoe access. At night, take advantage of the bluff overlooking the water. On the lawn, you can play with our bocce ball set or make use of the badminton/volleyball net usually set up (all equipment provided).
The kitchen is well-equipped with a stove, double-sink, refrigerator with ice-maker, and plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, and pots and pans, right down to the wine-glasses and beer mugs. Outside on the patio, you can sit and relax, watch the water, grill your dinner, and then eat at the picnic table on the large adjacent lawn overlooking the cove.
Special touches include a DVD player, digital Cable TV with Surround Sound and high-speed Wireless Internet. The office closet is stocked with games for your enjoyment. There are books and dvds, too.

Recent Reviews: June 2013 thank you so much for letting us stay in your home, we had a great time eating the lobster and looking for sea glass at low tide…the highlight of our trip was getting to go from Lubec over to Campebello Island, without passports, so wondering whether we would be left back into the US was a little unnerving but the views from the island were spectacular. We look forward to future trips so thank you again. From: J&M Pennsylvania
