Property description

We are located on a private dead end road 3 miles off of US Rt 1 in Nobleboro Maine.The house is surrounded by mature plantings to assure privacy. Spend a quite day reading a book in our perennial gardens, soak up the sun on the dock or explore the lake in our canoe or kayaks. Unspoiled Damariscotta Lake provides great swimming, boating and fishing yet we are only 10 minutes from town and the ocean.

The Midcoast towns of Damariscotta, New Harbor, Rockland, Boothbay and Camden have some of the best antiquing, gourmet restaurants, and shopping. Near by ferries will take you to the islands for a day trip.

Location

Car: Necessary

We're happy to supply 1 canoe and 2 kayaks so you may explore Damariscotta Lake. We want you to be safe and it IS the law so you MUST always use life jackets when you use the boats. The lake is patrolled by Maine rangers, if you don't have the right equipment in the boats they will fine you. :-(

We have a generator that switches automaticly just in case we loose power.

 

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Damariscotta Lake:
We purchased a lake front cottage on 1 1/4 acres over 25 years ago. A few years later we were fortunate to purchase the abutting 20 acres. We moved the original cottage and made way for our retirement home at the edge of the water. Over the years the cottage ( VRBO listing # 408266 ) has had many improvements and now it's a comefortable 3 bedroom rseasonal rental cottage. We have separate docks and private sitting areas for both the house and the cottage. We've added mature plantings and perennial gardens around the both the house and cottage to increase the natural beauty and privacy. Our property is located 3 miles from US rt 1 on a private dead end road. The house sits on the east side of the lake looking directly west for maximum sun all day and fantastic sunsets in the evening. Loons and eagles are a daily sight and if you very quiet you can see the occasional deer, fox, and owl, and that damn groundhog in the vegetable garden! Depending on the season, your welcome to pick fresh vegetables from our garden such as herbs, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. We are now able to offer both the front house and the rental cottage for larger family gatherings

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Other than the privacy, the wildlife and the beauty of the lake, to me the best thing is when the phone rings....it's usually the wrong number. Total relaxation...... that's the best!
