Wonderfully decorated throughout, Sea St House is perched on the harbor in the village of Tenants Harbor, in Midcoast, Maine. Walk to the fish market, general store, library, restaurants and bakery, or stay in and watch the lobster boats pass from the comfort of the panoramic deck. Along with a touch of nostalgia, Sea St House offers all the modern amenities as you explore the midcoast's numerous attractions.
Tenants Harbor is located halfway down the St George peninsula, about a five minute drive to Port Clyde. Forrest Gump ran to Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, as he passed Drift Inn Beach and breathtaking views along the way. Port Clyde is also where you'll mingle with locals talking about the day's lobster catch, or hop the ferry to Monhegan Island for some memorable day hiking.
Rockland, with its rich art, fine dining and culture, is a twenty minute drive up the coast along Rt One. Famous music and lobster festivals happen there throughout the summer, and you can charter sailing boats, peruse the many shops and walk the Breakwater year round. The village of Camden and the Camden Hills are also within a thirty minute drive.
Whether you're sightseeing, shopping, walking, biking or enjoying the sunset from the veranda, Sea St House offers a comfortable and relaxed house to suit your needs. Grab groceries and cook in the large, open kitchen for the week, enjoying the view, a lighted fire and the quiet, or use the area to fill yourself with culture, food and ocean views.

We recently spent a week in this most-beautiful home and setting. With one strong exception - see below - the house was as advertised and more. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want, including coffee grinders, juicers, and even a bread maker. The house itself was large enough to acomodate the eight we had, and the fenced-in yard was perfect for dogs. There was a good gate at the top of the stairs to prevent the toddler and dogs from going down. We felt totally comfortable and welcome and would highly recommend it.
However, this is not a house for the mobility impaired, and is most definitely not wheelchair accessible. The first problem is a moderately sloped walkway from parking area to house, which was covered with shells. The path is beautiful but very treacherous and exhausting for the person on a walker; she wound up leaving the house only once the week we were there. In addition the master bedroom and bath were big and modern but the bathroom had no grab bars, making toileting and showering difficult and hazardous.
A suggestion to the owners: put a door outside the second bedroom. Since the only way to ensure privacy in that bedroom is to close the door at the kitchen, this effectively removed the bathroom from general use. Two people used that bathroom, and everyone else went to the basement.
