Alna house description
Available as a long term winter rental too.
This exquisitely restored/renovated Antique Cape (circa 1790) has been featured as the cover story for Down East magazine. The spacious home(2700 sq. ft) is nestled on 83 acres of meadows and woodlands with 1/2 mile frontage on the Sheepscot River in historic Alna village. The home features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 3 fireplaces, comfortable living room with classic brick fireplace, large dining room with large fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, a sun-filled sitting room overlooking the Sheepscot River, a dressing room, washer/dryer and an oversized 2 car carriage house.
Period details abound including 24' floor boards, color washed plaster walls, wrought iron hardware, plus hand-painted murals and stenciling.
Located half a mile down a private and scenic gravel drive, this home's privacy is assured. The site is naturally landscaped with indigenous plants including the traditional lilacs, fruit trees, a grape arbor, clematis, and wisteria. It is a unique ecosystem at the confluence of the fresh and saltwater portions of the river. Wildlife abounds and a former owner ran ornithological studies for Cornell University.

Three couples stayed at the Alna Cape in Fall of 2011. Relaxing, comfortable, with every amenity you need. Loved the area, we went on day trips all week and would go back every year if possible. So much history and the local towns are so charming. Owners keep info on all the best restaurants and places to visit. Can't wait to go back!!!

Loved this house and property. Peaceful, beautiful and unique. The trails were great and day trips to Pemiquid , Alna, Damarscotta and Boothbay were super. Not enough time to do and see everything we wanted to. Look forward to returning soon!

Paradise in Maine!!!
Paradise in Maine!!!
I was able to spend a week at this rental property in late June and found the house CHARMING and the location perfect for one seeking solitude from the stresses of work and city life but close enough to the coast for town adventures. While the house is dated 1780, the facilities are updated with modern bathrooms and kitchen and TV. Washer and dryer are located in a cool basement cellar. River outings were easy with the owner's kayaks and canoe available at the river. Would recommend this rental to anyone and hope that I will have many return visits for my perfect Maine vacation!!!!

Why the Owner Chose Alna:
We love unusual, unique properties with lots of acreage that can not be duplicated. This fits the bill. Being from the deep, hot and humid South we love the weather year round. We have also been impressed with the genuine hospitality you find from the locals- It probably helps being just a bit off the beaten track- but still only 15 minutes from two great towns- Damariscotta and Wiscasset.
