Harpswell (N,S,E&W) cottage description

Step out of the stress of everyday life and into this little bit of paradise. This family owned cottage is part of a larger home, located at the end of a peninsula, with water views from most rooms. A self contained, 882 square foot, two level apartment with private entrances, is the perfect solution to expensive rentals not easily afforded during the present economic climate.

Casually elegant, this recently renovated 1927 summer home is a blend of old world charm and modern conveniences. Each bedroom is lined with windows, affording views of passing lobster boats, changing tides, and gorgeous sunsets. An open concept living area and kitchenette provide all the conveniences necessary for comfortable living.

You can spend time sitting on the deck, overlooking the rocky Maine shore, or hop in the car and drive to nearby Boothbay Harbor, Old Orchard Beach, the outlet town of Freeport, or Pemaquid Point. In close proximity there are many venues for kayaking, boating, whale watches, and excursions, so you can be as busy as you please, or just idle, enjoying the cool summer breezes and breath taking water views.

So, come and see us. Take a deep breath of the fresh clean Maine air. Walk the quiet, picturesque streets, lined with beautiful old family homes, eat lots of lobster and once again, enjoy life. You deserve it!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: As a child this beautiful Maine home was owned by my grandparents. Grandpa built a separate unit, which is now what we refer to as our bungalow, so that all of his grandchildren and their families could enjoy the vacation home and he and Grandma could still keep their sanity! Growing up in this house made it a part of me, the sights and smells of the ocean, and the memories attached to them. So, in 2008, when the second generation needed to sell it, my husband and I bought it in order to maintain the family traditions. The grandchildren are all grown now, some with grandchildren of their own but the traditions will carry on. We hope you can make some memories too, and enjoy this beautiful spot just as we do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Harpswell (N,S,E&W):
                      We chose to buy this home so that we could keep it in the family. It is such a beautiful spot and has so many wonderful memories.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      You can have as much privacy as you want or visit with others who are living in the main house or renting the other guest cottage.
