At the edge of the ocean just 25 feet from the water sits "The Glenmere Ocean House." This one floor, two bedroom house is the perfect secluded vacation home. Tides rise and fall ten feet so things are always changing. Lobster boats, kayaks and sailboats pass by. The feeling of spaciousness toward the ocean is enhanced by a rocky beach 1000 feet long next door that angles away from the house.
Everything is provided. Full kitchen, all linens, washer and dryer, everything you need to walk in and start enjoying the beautiful views, incredible sunsets, a fireplace, large deck and screened porch. Easy launch from the beach if you have your own kayak. Or, consider visiting our friends at Port Clyde Kayaks where you can rent one for a day, or arrange a guided paddling tour around the harbor or out to the famous Marshall Point Lighthouse and the inner islands. There is Wi-Fi high speed Internet Access.
Please keep reading but to proceed with a reservation, use "Ask Owner a Question" or if you use “Request to Book,” you should add a message because all bookings require communicating with us before anything is final.
Our place is very quiet. Perfect for relaxing and reading but also a perfect 'jumping off' point for visits to places like Rockland (20 minutes) for unique shops, restaurants, and summer festivals, or Camden (40 min) for Windjammer sailing and an iconic Maine town--a river runs under it and into the harbor, or Boothbay Harbor (1.5 hours) for a Whale Watch or further 'down east' to Bar Harbor (2.5-3 hours) for famous Acadia Nat'l Park and whale watch boats there too. Close to home at Port Clyde, 1 mile away, take the boat to Monhegan Island, or a puffin/nature cruise or a lighthouse tour/cruise.
Our ocean waterfront is Muscongus Bay as it meets the Atlantic Ocean. Sometimes we have crashing waves but usually it is quieter than bold ocean frontage. To see our video, page through the pictures and it will be one of them.
We have our own highly admired web page for the house. To see it search glenmerehouse and to help you find us, we pay VRBO/Homeaway for this listing. They have their procedures and they charge you a "Service Fee" but you are renting from us, not from them, and we are always available for questions or help. We have been renting for more than 20 years and as owners, not lodging professionals, we just might miss the 24 hour promise they give you but if they take you away from us, check back.
Thank you for your interest in our place.
