Newly built in 2007; equipped and comfortably furnished; washer and dryer, WiFi, cable TV, DVD, phone, gas log heat.

Harborside dining; lovely sandy beach, Pemaquid Lighthouse, historic sites, Monhegan Island ferry, sightseeing boats nearby. An artist's and photographer's Paradise! July and August are high season, but don't overlook the serene beauty of spring and fall when attractions are open the crowds are thin, and the scenery is fabulous.

The lobster fishing village of New Harbor is located near the tip of the Pemaquid Peninsula. Local shopping, galleries, historic sites, and one of Maine's best sandy beaches all within walking distance. Our lighthouse, featured on the Maine quarter coin, is world famous.

A fifteen minute drive to Damariscotta will bring you to a lovely, quaint riverside village with many shops, restaurants, cultural activities, movie theater, and a modern hospital. Camden, Rockland, Augusta, and Boothbay Harbor (don't miss the fabulous new botanical garden!) are all within an hour's drive.

Other Activities: Sandy beach with children's programs and facilities, state parks.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are two active professionals, failures at retirement, attempting to spend as much time as possible in our beloved New Harbor. Marilyn is a musician and has an active piano teaching studio (thus 'Suite') and John is a retired manufacturer of specialty food seasonings and spices (thus 'Thyme'). Now you know why we call our cottage 'Suite Thyme!'

Why the Owner Chose New Harbor:
We discovered New Harbor 38 years ago while on a camping trip to Boothbay. We immediately packed up our gear and moved to a campground in New Harbor. We returned year after year, first camping, then renting cottages, then, finally having our own home. Even after all these years we still marvel at the beauty of New Harbor and still enjoy its fabulous amenities and friendly locals. We constantly meet more and more folks who have had similar experiences. After having explored so much of the Maine coast, we just knew we had stumbled into a very special place. To us there is no more pleasant location on earth. Our view is breathtaking. Fabulous restaurants, galleries, beaches; attractions of many types abound.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Immense natural beauty, lobsters right off the boat, ever changing surf. Easterly view of islands, working lobstermen, and awesome sunrises make it hard to leave! We find it difficult to tear ourselves away from the property, but with so many attractions and distractions so nearby, we often do just that!
