Newcastle cottage description

A refreshingly furnished, privately owned and managed cottage, Beckoning Bay offers the serenity of nature, water activities, and close access to Midcoast Maine charms. Its blend of casual and sophistication sets the mood for comfort in this cottage on three acres fronting The Great Salt Bay, Maine's first Marine Protected Area. A highlight of Beckoning Bay is its 12x44 foot enclosed waterside porch. You choose whether to relax and watch unspoiled nature or get closer on the water in the provided rowing dory,and kayaks. It's a private setting yet only a mile from the twin towns of Damariscotta and Newcastle with restaurants, shops and theater (live and cinema).
