About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
A full service kitchen, along with an outdoor 5-burner gas grill provides all the amenities needed to prepare your favorite breakfast, lunch or dinner. We've even provided a 33-qt lobster kettle so you can prepare your own Maine lobster & clam feast (holds 8-12 lobster depending on size).
When you're not out enjoying Bowdoin College's live summer theatre, dining on Bailey's Island or shopping at the Freeport Outlets, stay in for the evening with a good book. Or, watch your favorite DVD on the 42' flat screen TV in the living room or the 26' flat screen TV (w/DVD player) in the Master Bedroom. Or, try your hand at night fishing off the dock during high tide. Whatever your choice, this property and the surrounding area offers you endless activities, both day and evening, to help you enjoy your week away from the stresses of work.
We upgraded with all new bedroom, living room, dining and kitchen furniture. We've provided all the comforts of home to help ensure a refreshing nights sleep to prepare you for the next days activities. We even installed a brand new water filtration & salt conditioning system. Great taste for drinking and cooking.
The property is backed up with a 12Kw generator that automatically kicks on should a power outage ever occur allowing you uninterrupted enjoyment of your Maine experience no matter what time of year you stay.

Year Purchased: 2009
About: Owners: Michael & Rhonda Boyett: We are both professionals working in the Healthcare industry. We love to travel and have visited many coastal areas (East coast, West coast & Hawaii) in the USA. We've successfully raised two children who are now college graduates and pursuing their own professional careers (Attorney & Nurse). We are originally from the east coast (Maine & Virginia) and moved to California in the 80's. We still have family in Maine and visit often. Please direct all inquiries to our property manager, Heather Allen @ Your Island Connection, LLC. YIC, LLC has served the local islands for over 30-years. Heather and her assistant, Michaela Bichrest, can answer any and all questions about this unique & popular area of Maine. They can also provide complete instructions for booking, payment and other similar requirements.
Why Harpswell, ME, USA:
My parents completed this spec home in 1992 after my father retired from the Navy. We fell in love with the place, visiting numerous times with our children during the '90's; fishing, going out on lobster runs with my Dad and just relaxing. My parents intention was to pass the property on to their kids. With my Dad's passing, Mom finally reached a point where she could no longer take care of the place alone. We purchased the property in the summer of 2009 as our second home. We have had numerous friends comment on how beautiful the property and area are and expressing a desire to stay. It was then we decided to offer it as a vacation rental so others could share in the beauty & tranquility of this place.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet and away from the busy main streets of town but close enough (7-miles) for convenient access for food shopping nd other supplies. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and serene. The neighbors are friendly and very respectful of each others privacy. For us, this place offers a great escape from the day to day stresses of our jobs. This is one of the few places we have ever been that truly allows us to completely unwind and 'recharge'.
