Castine house description

Classic Maine waterfront home with expansive lawn sloping down to sand beach. Watch the boats come in and out of Castine harbor while playing croquet or badminton on the back lawn. An easy 2-block stroll gets you to Main Street and the quaint shops and restaurants that make up the village of Castine, and the town dock, the heart of the working waterfront. The house sits on the water side of lovely Perkins Street, lined with towering elms and classic 19th century seacoast homes.

This home has been loved and cared for by 5 generations of the same family for over 50 years. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs all overlook the water. Downstairs is a glassed-in sitting porch, connected to a new deck for outdoor relaxing, a dining room with picture windows, and a kitchen. The 'library,' a quieter space with fireplace, provides for relaxed evening conversation or TV. There is also a half-bath downstairs.

The beautiful sand beach, rare for the rocky Maine coast, is yours to enjoy for beach combing, launching your own kayaks, or just relaxing. The gently sloping lawn overlooking the water has, for decades, been home to all manner of sports and children's games.

The house is equipped with WiFi and cable TV. Linens and towels are provided.

Rentals are Friday to Friday, with a minimum of one week.
