Property description

Located on Main Street in the center of Castine's historic district, the house is less than 1000 feet from the harbor. It stands between the oldest operating U.S. Post Office and the Castine Inn.

With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, it can very comfortably sleep 6 people. The house has a fully-stocked kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, silverware), a dining room with seating for eight, reliable Wi-Fi, TV with internet access and DVD player, washer & dryer, outdoor deck, and off-street parking.

Castine has a number of historic sites and parks (including the ruins of British earthworks at Fort George), a deep water harbor (with moorings for small boats beyond the current of the Penobscot and Bagaduce rivers). Attractions include a nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, kayak rentals, a nature preserve with trails, beaches, shops, and restaurants. In addition, the town has a public library, an active historical society, the Wilson Museum, a weekly farmers market, and a charming lighthouse. Castine's streets are lined with 18th and 19th century houses, and shaded by large elms. Next door to the Lowder house is the Castine Post Office - opened in 1814, it is reportedly the oldest in continuous operation in the United States.

The historic port of Castine is located on the Penobscot Bay, about half-way up the coast of Maine. A picturesque small New England town, Castine offers a calming and relaxing break from the rest of the world. You can browse galleries and downtown shops, dine in waterfront restaurants, peruse the local market, or enjoy a lobster roll at the town dock - all are conveniently located within steps from the house. There are also plenty of activities within walking and biking distance, such as golfing, tennis, kayaking, and hiking. It also serves as a base for short drives to towns around the Blue Hill Peninsula, Deer Isle, Camden, Bar Harbor, and Acadia National Park.
