Harpswell Center cottage description

With water all around you as you stand in the living room of this completely renovated cottage, you feel as though you are standing on the bridge of a ship--water, water everywhere. The cottage is directly on Middle Bay (Casco Bay area) with stair access to approximately one hundred feet of private sand/rock/calm-water beach with mooring. Enjoy the new deck for cooking and eating outside, a separate yard for ball or badminton games and privacy without isolation. Families will love the ability to swim, fish or investigate tidal pools without leaving the property. Mom and Dad will enjoy quiet time on the deck as the setting sun provides a gorgeous show. Despite its quiet location and relative privacy, it's still close to wonderful restaurants and other local amenities. It's also only 15 minutes from Brunswick for shopping and supplies. Owner has put a high end water purification system as well.

If you're looking for beachfront living at its finest--with updated interiors, 180-degree views of the water and a small beach community--this is your new favorite vacation spot!
