Property description

This beautiful, roomy classic Maine summer cottage has been in the family for generations and is filled with happy family memories. It is fully equipped, spacious and comfortable, inside and outside. There is no better place on earth than the front porch as the sun goes down and casts its light on the hulls of the yachts anchored in the harbor.

FIRST FLOOR: Inviting, comfortable living room with oversized fireplace (stocked wood box), games galore (including bumper pool table), two seating areas, bookshelves filled with classics and contemporary books. Picture window looks out to the harbor and islands beyond. Formal dining room with table that seats 12, picture window out to harbor and islands. Old fashioned pantry with sink. Eat-in country kitchen, fully stocked with utensils, dishes, pots and pans, cable TV with DVD. Contemporary 'fridge, dishwasher, microwave. Downstairs bedroom off kitchen has twin beds; bathroom with step-in shower across hall from twin bedroom. Large front porch for eating and lounging. Enclosed back porch with washer/dryer. Charcoal grill off kitchen.

SECOND FLOOR: Four bedrooms, two in front of house with ocean views, each with its own bath; two in back of house, one with enclosed sleeping porch. Bedroom 1: queen bed, bath with shower. Bedroom 2: queen bed, bath with tub. Bedroom 3: queen bed, enclosed sleeping porch off of it with twin beds (ideal for children). Bedroom 4: twin beds, two dressers. Bedrooms 3 and 4 each has a sink for washing up. All sinks are original white porcelain in excellent condition. Shared bath for bedrooms 3 and 4 off upstairs hall has shower. Another enclosed small porch with 3 twin beds off front bedrooms.

Maximum number of people at standard rate is ten. Up to twelve allowed with a $50 per person, per night additional charge.

All linens provided with house including sheets and towels. Beds are made up clean when you arrive.

Outside, lawn slopes down to 75 feet of ocean shoreline with small beach and rocks for young children. Large deep water dock, swimming ladder. Enjoy spectacular views of the harbor and Tumbler, Squirrel, and Fisherman's Islands from the dock's benches, the porch, living room, dining room, and two front bedrooms. Pick fresh flowers from the garden.
Kayaks available for use.

Note: A dinghy tied to the dock may be used by owners to get to/from boats during rental periods.

ENTRANCE: Driveway brings you in facing the garage; house is down the slope on left. Enter through the lattice back porch, into the kitchen. (Or walk around to the right of the house and come up the front porch steps.)

ONE MILE from bustling Boothbay Harbor for restaurants, shopping, bookstore, library, art galleries, and regular concert series. Within one hour (easy day trips) are extensive hiking, antique shops, more art galleries, and the shops of Freeport.

BOATS AVAILABLE: Two sea kayaks and one double kayak. Other boats may be rented in town, and can be tied up at the dock during rental period.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1962

About the owner: Our parents bought this house when we were in our teens. We have spent every summer here since - its access to the water and its incomparable views keep us bound to it. At this point we rent it out four to five weeks each summer to defray taxes and upkeep.
