What is unique about our 'on the Rocks' location?
If you have ever dreamed of living by the sea overlooking the ocean, this home is the ultimate Maine experience! A breathtaking panoramic view greets you as you enter the door. Three sliding doors lead to an oceanside deck with waves crashing below where you can enjoy AM coffee while watching lobster boats and gulls. Our house sits on the same granite cliff as the picturesque Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and has forever ocean views that you can enjoy safely from the comfort of the living room - especially a spectacular storm if you are lucky to be there to witness one! !!!
An ocean view window wall is in the master bedroom also. Watch the moonlight dance on the waves at night right from your bed! Awaken to sunrises over the ocean, and COOL northeast breezes direct from the sea. We are on the dramatic Atlantic Ocean side of the peninsula, not the calmer Bay side.
Stroll to the lighthouse along the Cliff Rd for a coffee/fresh-baked muffin at the Seagull Shop or in the evening for fabulous sunsets! Bring plenty of film. Photo opps galore! This is picture postcard Maine with fishing villages, harbors, and coves. The movie Time In A Bottle (Kevin Cosner) was filmed here.
Our contemporary home was designed and built by an architect for his personal retirement, but he became ill. We fell in love with the open light-filled plan with lofty cedar cathedral ceilings in ALL rooms, even the baths! Three sliders open to the ocean deck. High clerestory windows in the great room pull in even more ocean breezes and the large size room welcomes families. All rooms are on one floor. The well-equipped kitchen has a 4'x7' eating island and abundant cabinets along 3 walls. Furnishings are Ethan Allen, and Pottery Barn. Our baths were redone 2010. Our home has an air exchange system for allergies, and we cannot take pets. See more photos below and info in our descriptions on the site. We rent by the week only, -no days. Maximum number of renters is 6, including children 10 or older.
Best of all, our location is a nature retreat on a private lane, back from the road noise and people walking by, perfect for building special memories, yet nearby are 2 restaurants within 1/2 mile, within 3 miles is a white quartz sand beach, within 5 miles, an intertidal preserve, well-stocked grocery, fresh lobster right off the boat at Shaw's Lobster pound/restaurant, Boat Tours to puffins, seals, & Monhegan Island, historical fort, art galleries, antiques, kayaking, local crafts, etc. Quaint shops and restaurants are found in Damariscotta (15 miles), Wiscasset, Boothbay Harbor (45 min.). Further afield are the Owl's Head Aeronautical Museum, the Wyeth Collection, Farnsworth Museum, Rockland (1 hour). Brochures are in the house with more to discover. Or you can unwind and do nothing - and enjoy living by the edge of the sea!
