Charming Cottage with Water Access and Use of Tennis Court

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located near the southern shore of Tenants Harbor, this lovely farmhouse is the perfect place to bring the family for a casual mid-coast vacation. Enjoy morning coffee on the sunny deck, a heavenly place to read and relax. Just a five-minute walk down the quiet lane brings you to a beautiful wooden dock, where you can put in your kayak, swim, or simply gaze Eastward, toward the majestic islands of the Mussel Ridge Channel.

Enjoy the simple pleasures of Maine: birdwatching, walks in the woods or on the shore, curling up by the wood stove on a foggy day. Kids love the annex, which is connected by breezeway to the main house--sleep in the loft or in the double bed downstairs and enjoy the private outdoor shower. The nearby village of Port Clyde offers ferry service to Monhegan Island, and the amenities of Rockland, Rockport, and Camden are a half-hour away. Our family has enjoyed this house for three generations; we know you will too.

Very Nice, Cozy, Rustic place, with modern comforts

  • 5 of 5

Rustic cabin with many modern comforts. The property owner is very pleasant and responsive to questions. Nearby towns are very nice, with great boutiques/shops and good food. Plenty to do in the area if you care to explore, and a tranquil escape if you want to get away. I suggest the transportation museum about 20 minutes away (especially if you have kids), and the lobster tour by motor boat in Camden -I think it was Camden Tours- (where they check a few lobster traps and talk about the area). The Tenants Landing General Store is very nice, and has all the basic needs. There is a Wal-Mart about 1/2 an hour away, if you need something not at the general store. Good central point for day trips to Acadia, Bangor & Portland.

Wonderful old Maine house with lots of room off the main highway but not on the water.

  • 4 of 5

Best part of this rental is the access to dock where we could keep our kayaks and access the water. Grandkids loved biking around the neighborhood, picking raspberries, and using the tennis court. Very friendly neighborhood with nice walks through the woods.

Too bad that Homeaway/VRBO adds a 10% service fee AND home protection insurance fee to the cost.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was one of two houses in which my extended family stayed over the last two weeks for our annual family gathering. Sam has a lovely house with great qualities. My kids loved playing in the annex during the two very cold and rainy days our first full weekend there. They also loved the outdoor shower! The house gets some great cross breezes, which makes sleeping very easy. Beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is well stocked for what we needed. Though the house is not water front, it has water access and it is close enough to the water that you can smell it in the air. I loved sitting on the porch and breathing in the Maine air! Make sure to walk down to the dock. Though Maine waters are a bit cold for me, the kids and Dads loved jumping off the dock. We also used the tennis courts a few times. All in all, this is a great house, and you will not be disappointed. Sam is also very easy to work with. Enjoy!

Charming retreat from the madness of life!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we had hoped for! So comfortable and quaint..furnishings were very homey, kitchen easy to work from. Comfy living room with wood burning stove, which we took advantage of! Loft space off the main house perfect for extended family. And Tenants Harbor was perfect! Access to the bay and the shared floating dock was the best! Great place to sit and dream, read or just be. Best part of the house was the outside porch! Comfy,and the views were spectacular! The owner was very accessible and friendly! We will be back Maine!!

Another great vacation in Maine.

  • 5 of 5

Love this house so much! This is our second year. Its like stepping back into our childhood homes in Maine. So warm and comfortable. From cozy fires in the "barn" to cookouts on the porch we always feel like we are "home". The house is so welcoming. We hope to be back next year.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the farmhouse. It was just as described and very comfortable. Being originally from the Rockland area we were familiar so we knew it would be lovely. Very peaceful and quiet. The house is very comfortable and we felt at home as soon as we stepped in. There was plenty of space to have our families over and we made some wonderful memories. The only disappointing thing is that we can't rent it for the holdays if we come up! Highly recommend this house for a true Maine vacation.
