Harpswell (N,S,E&W) house description

The OCEAN is 20 feet from the door!
Our four season home is located in South Harpswell, on Potts Point, a small seaside community jutting out into central Casco Bay. Potts is a picturesque, friendly neighborhood. It is unique in that while quiet and an excellent place to walk and kayak, it also has a town dock, a lobster pound, and a restaurant all within a five minute walk.

This home has been completely renovated and is fully winterized. Some of the updates this year include: new paint, brand new queen mattress, new microwave and HE washer and dryer, new picnic table, adirondack chairs/table and outdoor rocker and updated lanscaping. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and the spare bedroom has two single beds, a full kitchen/sunroom (front room), a living room with a sleeper sofa and a TV/DVD/VCR player (books, games and some movies) and 'map room' that has a NOAA very large map of the area, map of area lighthouses, books on shells you may find and other resources like tide charts for the area! Dining and front room has large bay window overlooking the ocean- a great way to start the morning with a cup of coffee! As you can see, you are on the water and have rock stairs that go from the property to the practically private beach to shell, swim or kayak.

Right outside your window you will be visited daily by eider ducks and many other types of birds and wake up to smell the salt air and rugosa roses!

Kayaking is very popular in Ash Cove. Feel free to use our two kayaks with paddles and lifejackets (State law requires wearing these) during your stay. We also have a 'haul-off' for your dingy as well as a 250lb mooring in front of the house. Walking out to the uninhabited Point is very popular and there you can search for sea glass, shells or sand dollars at low tide and surf cast at high tide.

There are also many restaurants within a fifteen mile radius. We are located twelve miles from Brunswick and just a half hour from downtown shopping in Freeport (L.L. Bean). We have put together many menus of area restaurants so you can can look for a meal without leaving the house!

We have put a lot of love into this home and we hope you appreciate our efforts as it is where we vacation too! We request that renters treat it with the respect that this special property deserves and only rent with that thought in mind!

Just steps from the ocean. 10/06/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Eager to return to New England with fall colors setting in, this bear was rewarded ten-fold with this Oceanside cottage on Potts Point, finally finding a relaxing retreat to view nature’s splendid beauty.
The house is amazing - situated only a few steps away from the ocean. With provided kayaks and canoes, the water front became a paradise for beachcombing, allowing access to the sometimes peninsula that appears during low tide.
Ardell greeted me with a special handwritten note, a move I found to be most touching, an invitation to enjoy the house and the full comfort of the amenities provided. The kitchen pantry was amply supplied for this amateur chef’s needs.
The sunroom provided unparalleled views for watching the sunset over the ocean and for the adventurous folks in our party, the map room and well-curated guide book provided all the staging tools needed for discovering the additional beauties of the surrounding area.
I was able to witness the history of the house by viewing photos from days gone by at the lobster pound just a few hundred feet across the causeway. Needless to say, this bear is ready to make a return to this oceanside wonder and explore more of the natural wonders that await!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Married, one teenaged daughter. We are dedicated to continuing the positive rental experience which this property has enjoyed.

Why the Owner Chose Harpswell (N,S,E&W):
Having spent the last 15 years vacationing in the Casco Bay area we decided to buy a property in the area to continue to enjoy the exceptional beauty which Maine has to offer and share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to kayak. Having Orrs and Bailey Islands nearby is a great plus to this location. Where else can you walk to a restaurant, walk to get a lobster right off the boat or go just feet to the ocean?
