Property description

Enjoy some time in beautiful Maine! Bring family and friends to enjoy our rustic home set back in the beautiful Maine woods on the Kennebec River.
Pets are always welcome and dates are flexible.
Just steps from the Kennebec River, this location allows you to enjoy a tranquil getaway while remaining close to any attractions you may desire: beaches, fishing, boating, shopping, and more.

The house is situated on four acres and surrounded by the woods of the Kennebec Land Trust. As you drive up the stone driveway to the top of the hill you pass by the front of the house and come around to the back entrance. A deck spans the entire back of the house and has a grill as well as a large outdoor table with umbrella and chairs. You can enjoy quiet mornings out on the deck in the summer sun or meals outdoors in the evenings.
Entering the back door you pass a half bath and small back bedroom on your right to find a large open kitchen and dining room on your left. The kitchen is stocked with all the necessities if you want to cook at home and a large dining room table that seats 10. As you walk through the dining room you enter the family room. A comfy couch, Direct TV, and WiFi are available if weather or other circumstances keep you indoors for part of your stay. Off the family room is the Master Bedroom. With plenty of windows and a Queen size bed, the Master is bright and welcoming. French doors open out onto the back deck so you can step right outside.
Heading downstairs the ground floor has three full bedrooms and a full bath which provide plenty of room for family or friends or both to stay. The full bath is stocked with towels and there’s a laundry room for your use at the bottom of the stairs. Each bedroom has a double bed and ample closet space. All the bedroom windows look out onto the front lawn which stretches down the hill to the road.

The local area offers every kind of activity you could hope for while visiting Maine. The Kennebec River is only 800 feet from the house, with fishing access at the end of Old Ferry Road. Farther down Fiddler’s Reach Road is the public boat access where you can enter the river for a day of boating. You can travel North to Bath or South towards Popham Beach and Boothbay Harbor. If you want to spend a day at the beach you can drive down Route 209 to Popham Beach State Park and walk out on the expansive sand flats at low tide. Visit the Fort Popham Site nearby if you’re interested in a bit of history or grab something to eat a Spinney’s, a long-time local spot right on the beach.
If you’re interested in shopping or lunch or dinner out, Boothbay, Georgetown, and Brunswick are all nearby. Even Freeport isn’t too far if you want to visit L. L. Bean, a Maine institution.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My name is Darren and I’ve been vacationing in the Phippsburg area my whole life. I have a background in construction and I have carefully, gracefully remodeled this home to be a place suitable for large family gatherings. I live in Boston and usually come up to the house only on the weekends. It has been a privilege for me to own this home and has brought me great joy and many memorable experiences, both at the house and out on the water.

Why the Owner Chose Phippsburg:
I didn't purchase this home with the intention of renting it out, but in order to allow people to experience the same joy I've had here. It just so happens that after I completed the remodel, it became clear to me that there was a need for a property as unique as this on the vacation rental market. By offering up my home for rent in this beautiful area, I feel I'm able to contribute to bringing wonderful experiences into other people's lives. One of our guests called this home, “the greatest place on earth'. That being said, the main reason I rent out this property is to allow you to experience just a short visit to paradise and create great memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This rental offers the perfect mix of a tranquil setting away from it all with closeness to everything so you’re not spending the day driving around if you want to get out. We enjoy proximity to the river, beaches, shopping and dining, and the highway. That includes great dining, antiquing, a boat launch, golf, state parks and beaches, historic sites, and more. It’s the perfect location for any renter since you have any activity you desire at your fingertips while still being able to get away from it all and just enjoy the peach and quiet at home.
