Property description

THE BRUCE FAMILY INVITES YOU TO EXPERIENCE THE TIDES AT TENANTS HARBOR!

We are very excited to extend a warm invitation to you, your family and friends to enjoy our vacation home in Tenants Harbor, Maine. From the moment you drive down Mechanic Street and see the Harbor, the lobster and sailboats, Southern Island, and the Atlantic Ocean you will know you are someplace very special.

There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning to the sound of the lighthouse bell from Southern Island or lobstermen heading out to seize their day's bounty. You will enjoy both harbor and ocean views from our multiple decks while sipping a fresh cup of coffee with a cool morning breeze blowing. Maybe your day will include a local festival, crabbing with the kids off the town dock, a day sail and picnic on a coastal island, or maybe it is just relaxing in a chair on our lush lawn with a good book and taking in the harbor activity.

As the afternoon winds down your stomach will probably be craving something off those lobster and fishing boats you have been watching all day. You can enjoy a lobster or clam bake you prepare or head to one of the many local restaurants; either way we promise you will not be disappointed.

Whether you end the night with an ice cream cone from our favorite shop in Port Clyde or a game of Scrabble from our well-stocked game room - or both, you will sleep well for sure and the good news is you can get up and do it all again five more days! Please come and enjoy all Maine has to offer at our quintessential Maine cottage, The Tides at Tenants Harbor.

David and Skye Bruce

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are David and Skye Bruce and we're here to help you navigate all the fun of Maine’s Mid-Coast. We are Virginians most of the year meaning we are “from away” as they say in Maine, but I spend a lot of time in Tenants Harbor. Skye grew up spending her summers here with her grandparents at a home they owned in the village and David fell in love with Maine when Skye brought him to "T' Harbor"! We own a real estate company back in Virginia and take a very professional approach with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Tenants Harbor, Saint George, ME, USA:
How about that view! Some say it's the most beautiful in Maine and we don't argue! From our home you look out to the harbor and ocean. Most days there is a parade of lobster boats and yachts to view. The island you see is Southern Island with the Tenants Harbor Lighthouse on the oceanside. The island is owned by the famous Wyeth family. (NC, Andrew, Jamie) Jamie Wyeth still spends a lot of time there painting in his studio. On a walk one morning 10 years ago from a home we were renting we saw this cottage for sale. The second we saw the view from the property we knew we would buy it. We have spent the last 10 years, updating, decorating and furnishing with Maine antiques, art and treasures. Our guests tell us its fun just to walk around the home and look! Our goal has been to keep that authentic Maine cottage feel to the home. We fix anything broken, keep it very clean, but don't over update. Example are some of our floors. We pulled carpet up to find wide plank pine floors. Instead of sanding and refinishing we left them as they were. Painted a classic Maine gray with the previous coat of red paint showing through. There is expose brick in places, huge exposed beams on ceilings, cedar shake siding and many other classic architectural features. This is a very special property!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is a special magic to Mid-Coast Maine that makes you happy to be alive! You see the magic at sunrise and through the sea-smoke as lobstermen head out for the day. You feel it on a boat as you leave Tenants Harbor, past the American flag on Mouse Island, the Lighthouse on Southern Island and as you look back to the mountains of Camden. You hear it in the call of a seagull, the sound of a buoy bell or the laughter of your kids crabbing off a dock. Part of the magic in Maine is the physical beauty, but just as important are the people of Maine and the culture. It’s walking into a General Store and seeing a sternman off a lobster boat, sitting with a renowned artist and a Supreme Court justice talking about the weather. There is an authenticity to Maine-- in her beauty, in her people and in her places. I think Maine is a place you have “to get”. Not all people do, but I sure am glad we do! Enjoy your Maine adventure! The way life should be!
