About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Our cedar-shaked, one-floor home welcomes you with vibrant flowerboxes and several flower beds on an acre in beautiful Maine. The two bedrooms (one with a double bed, one with twin beds) are complimented by the large sunny family room (with two queen futons) which leads to a private flagstone patio through French doors. The queen sofa bed in the living room is also available for sleeping. There is one full bathroom with bathtub; the shower has great water pressure to wash away your beach day's sand! Washer/dryer on are on site; there is an outdoor clothesline for drying beach towels and suits.
The home is well-suited for gatherings of your family and friends--settle by the indoor fireplace or relax around the outdoor fire pit for an evening campfire. The open-concept, fully equipped kitchen with bay window and the dining area are easily accessible to the large sunny deck via sliders and doors. The gently sloping lawn supports a large area for children to play safely nearby. Our large library of books allows you to read and relax whether you are out on the deck, down at the Point, or sitting on the beach! Our collection of DownEast magazines may help you plan your Maine adventures and excursions during your stay.
Famous Pemaquid Point Lighthouse lies just south down the road (2.5 miles) and the white sands of Pemaquid Beach are 1 mile east. We are located in the village of New Harbor with a quaint, fully-stocked grocery store, gas station, hardware/fishing gear store, ice cream stand, Maine artists' galleries & craft shops, and a bank/ATM all within walking distance from the house. New Harbor is central to all Midcoast Maine cities and towns--Freeport to Camden are within an hour of travel time. The twin cities of Damariscotta/Newcastle are the closest 'big' towns to our home.
Water sports (kayaking/canoeing, sailing, swimming (ocean, lake, river swimming 'hole'), fine restaurants, birding, Hardy Boat Tours (including Monhegan Island and the Maine coast), hiking, shopping/antiquing are all within several miles of our home. The Botanical Gardens in Boothbay are a must see! For children, there are many activities: beach fun, tide pool explorations, hands-on activities at the local Colonial Pemaquid Museum and the Boothbay Harbor Aquarium to name a few.

About the owner: I am a speech/language pathologist who has worked with children for over 30 years in the NH public schools. The children's enthusiasm for life and learning inspires me daily! I am a mom, daughter, Greyhound rescuer, quilter, thinker, reader, hiker, and life-lover!
Why the Owner Chose New Harbor, Bristol, ME, USA:
My family has been coming to the Damariscotta/Pemaquid region since before my birth. I grew up vacationing at our family's log cabin on nearby Biscay Pond. As an adult, I searched for a long time for my Mainehouse--a home that was slightly off the beaten path, but still close to the many places I loved around the Pemaquid Peninsula.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I treasure both the 'perfect summer days' and the quiet moments off-season that I have at my Mainehouse with family and friends. Whether I am reading, working on a quilt, going to an auction, or cooking a lobster meal for others, I am always amazed at the peace I feel in my home in Maine.
