Property description

A perfect private setting to enjoy the refreshing and quaint qualities of the Maine coast. Single family house on a private acre of oceanfront property with nearly 300 feet of its own shoreline and great views of Penobscot Bay, the Weskeag River, and the Muscle Ridge Islands. Natural and cultivated perennials around the property, with plenty of outdoor seatings and vistas.

Casual and cozy environment with cathedral ceiling in living room. Rinnai heater for even heat comfort. Open kitchen and dining concept. One bedroom downstairs and one upstairs. Loft area for quiet time or napping space. Sleeps 4-5 people. Total of 4 beds: 2 doubles, 2 twins. Full deck the width of the house faces the shore. DVD/VHS player for movies.

Plenty of shore, hiking, boating, and relaxing options. Wildlife is common along sea and shore and includes local osprey, heron, seagulls, loons, etc. Guest mooring available for small power boat. State park featuring sandy beach for swimming only a mile away; state park featuring Owls Head Lighthouse just six miles away. Other historic lighthouses, scenic harbors, art, maritime and transportation museums, various restaurants, shopping, sailing, golf, hiking, and various recreational opportunities--and of course lobster--in close by Rockland, Rockport, and Camden.

A great place at a great price. (Check out the reviews).
