Car: Recommended

Activities in the nearby area include kayaking (bring your own or available for rent from Seaspray Kayaking), outboard boating (also available for rent at New Meadows Marina), or you can even take a tour from New Meadows Expeditions. There is nothing like a sunny, warm day on the water. And there is nothing like getting picked up at your own dock! Take a picnic, go fishing, go for lunch at Cundy’s Harbor or Sebasco Estates or just explore around the coves and estuaries. We call it gunkholing. There are great blue herons, eiders, arctic turns, ospreys, kingfishers, harbor seals and porpoises, the occasional loon, and, if you are lucky you can even see bald eagle. Watch lobsterman hauling traps in the bay. Seafarers travel from all over the world to cruise the Maine Coast. Just up the road there is an Audubon preserve with hiking trails through spruce woods and along the area called Back Cove.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have been drawn to this area for some time by the stunning natural beauty, variety of wildlife, the museums, the history, the Colleges, and the diversity of activities. Having lived in Portland, Gorham and Manchester (Maine), we summered and camped in the area until moving permanently in 2002. Jim grew up on the New Meadows messing around with boats first living here year round and then staying at the cottage summers and weekends. His family ancestors first moved into the area in the mid 1700’s as subsistence saltwater farmers and fisherman.

Why the Owner Chose West Bath:
The Blue Heron Cottage is both secluded and yet only a fifteen minute drive to downtown Bath and Brunswick, which each offer many shopping and dining opportunities. Bath is a shipbuilding community on the Kennebec, friendly to pedestrians, with boutiques and pubs. Home to Bowdoin College, Brunswick offers dramatic views of the Androscoggin and a popular walking green lined with restaurants and bookstores. Each is perfect for an afternoon of browsing in all seasons. Shops in Freeport and L.L. Bean are only another fifteen minutes away. Some of our favorite eateries in the area are Admiral’s Steakhouse, Henry and Marty’s, The Great Impasta, and the Dolphin Marina. There are over forty in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is also a vibrant cultural scene in the Bath-Brunswick area. The Maine Maritime Museum offers exhibits, talks, and other activities on Maine’s seafaring heritage. Take a cruise on the Kennebec River to Merrymeeting Bay and area lighthouses. Or visit the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College, which offers guided tours as well as hands-on activities. Tour groups have the opportunity to try on Inuit snow goggles, play with an ajugaq, try a bow-drill, feel various types of fur, and even hold a walrus tusk! The campus also houses the Maine State Music Theatre (MSMT). Now in their 56th year, the MSMT is the premier professional music theater in Maine. In addition, the Bowdoin International Music Festival attracts performers and classical musicians from around the world.
