About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


What is unique about our 'on the Rocks' location?

If you have ever dreamed of having a home on a cliff overlooking the ocean, this is the ultimate Maine experience! Our house sits on the same dramatic oceanfront cliff as the picturesque Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (selected for the U.S. Maine commemorative quarter)and has forever ocean views! Stroll to the lighthouse along the Cliff Rd for an AM 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.

Why select our house?

Watch waves crash into the rocks below from floor-to-ceiling window walls in the great room/dining room/ the ocean deck, and in the master bedroom, and picture window in the master bath. Awaken to sunrises over the ocean, seabirds, busy lobster boats, coffee on the deck, and COOL northeast breezes directly from the sea ! We are on the dramatic Atlantic Ocean side of the peninsula - not the bay. And if you are lucky to experience a storm at sea, you are in for a spectacular show, viewed from the comfort of your living room chair! Sleep at night to the waves lapping, or watch the moonlight dance like diamonds on the water from your bed in the master bedroom (Jeanne's favorite sight).

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.

Our location is a nature retreat, back from the road and noise, 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!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Hello! We are Jeanne and Ted, and this is our dream home. Ted, an engineer, was impressed with the solid construction. Jeanne an artist, was 'blown away' by the panoramic open ocean view and everchanging views of the sea and sky. The surrounding natural beauty inspires some of Jeanne's paintings found on the walls.

Why Pemaquid Point, Bristol, ME, USA:
Jeanne has wonderful memories of her youth, painting and studying at Schoodic Point in the Winter Harbor area. We wanted to find a home with the dramatic cliffs she so fondly remembered but closer than being so far north, and easier to reach by car. Yet, we wanted the private seclusion of a real Maine experience without the crowds of tourists. We explored several peninsulas before we discovered Pemaquid Point, - then we looked no further!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is a year round house with heat, so our favorite time to come here is during the quiet seasons. Ted likes to read in one of our comfy Ekornes Stressless chairs, and loves watching the huge waves during a storm at sea. Jeanne finds lots of subjects to paint at the lighthouse and or at the picturesque harbors. Our children and grandchildren love the family reunions and call their vacations 'an old-fashioned vacation'! Our rental season is usually from mid June through the first half of September. We hope you will enjoy living 'on the Rocks' as much as we do!
