Trixi purchased this House in 2002
Why Trixi chose Friendship
We love Maine and this spot is heaven! Every time we come, we pinch ourselves to make sure that this is, in fact, reality.
What makes this House unique
We love the location. We are only 17 miles to Damariscotta and about the same to Rockland. Both have unique restaurants, museums, theaters and shopping. Because we have about 60 islands around us, kayaking is premier. Since it is our home, we have equipped the kitchen with everything needed for cooking.

Peaceful and Tranquil
We found the description of the house to be very accurate, it really felt like home. The house was clean, attractive and nicely furnished. The kitchen was well stocked with condiments, herbs, cook wear and tableware.
We (two couples) found the setting for the house to be peaceful and tranquil. The views from the house of the water and the sunsets were very pleasing and picturesque. It was interesting to sit on the deck in the early morning and watch fisherman checking lobster traps.
We used the Kayaks every morning to explore the rocky shore, we even saw seals. The tennis court is just a short walk from the house and we enjoyed quiet walks on the private road. We found the neighbors that live on the same road to be friendly and welcoming.
Perfect house - quintessential Maine!
The house is even nicer than the pictures! All bedrooms have a picturesque water view. The house is private with lots of trees, but not enough to block the views. It is well designed with an open feel and a terrific screen porch on the back for your lobster feast! The bedrooms are all large and convenient to a bathroom. The kitchen is appointed even nicer than my house with every gadget we could use. The house is perfect for couples traveling together or a family get together. There is a sense of peace and calmness on the property. We play tennis so the court within walking distance was great. I was brought up coming to Maine every summer and this home has it all!
A perfect house for a week of relaxation with the whole family.
We arrived for the week with five adults and our dogs. The house is set along a beautiful water view with a private access road. We did not have to worry about a busy road nearby with the dogs and the sunsets over the water were stunning. The front lawn was a great place to spend the late afternoon playing cornhole and enjoying the day. We spent our mornings and evenings on the deck looking out at the view. The screened in porch and picnic table was perfect for every meal we ate at the house. The outdoor space was perfect for the dogs as well. Our kids used the tennis courts down the road, and we all walked the dirt road daily with the dogs.
The layout of the house was perfect for us. When we arrived, it was perfectly clean and so well designed. Everything had a place and we immediately felt right at home. There was a master bed and bath on the first floor so that we could stay there and the "kids" stayed upstairs. They enjoyed using the common space on the second floor for board games and card games after dinner. The bedrooms upstairs were spacious and perfect for people to have a little private space when anyone needed it. Downstairs, the kitchen/living room open space was great for us because we did a lot of cooking, especially in the evenings, and there was room for everyone. We used the outdoor cooking pot one night for lobsters and they were excellent. We did not use the little study room off the kitchen much because we were either cooking or outside. We totally lucked out with the weather and found ourselves wanting to be outside every moment possible.
We have a truly wonderful week. We have not been able to do a family vacation to Maine in years because of competing schedules. This week lined up by chance and we found Jutta's Place. Because of the wonderful time we had this summer, our kids have already worked to line up a common week off next summer so that we can return. This house was a great place for all of us to unplug, relax, laugh, eat, and enjoy summer in Maine.
A Very Special Place
Driving on Back Cove Road to Jutta's Place, we knew our vacation would be a dream; as we turned onto Ice Pond Road, we passed under tall evergreens, overlooking Ice Pond, but to our right was the beautiful sea. When we entered Trixi's and Lynn's home we felt welcomed by the loveliness of the furnishings, the cleanlinesness of every room, the spectacular views, and the attention to the comfort of their visitors. Each day, we walked the lovely roads, and though we planned many excursions, we fulfilled only a few--the wind chimes hanging in the tree near the two Adirondack chairs called to us, so our adventures were watching the lobstermen checking their traps, osprey fishing, and hummingbirds beating their wings right near us. This will be our "go to" home away from home. Thank you so much, Trixi and Lynn for sharing your special retreat.
Paradise at MidCoast
Spent two weeks at this spot, a wonderfully comfortable home with all we could ask for. Very private setting ,great views, and comfortable accomodations. Great kayaking, water access over a common dock , beautiful rocky coast . Great local spots ,and close to Rockland and Camden a wonderfully relaxing vacation plenty of room for the dogs! Great owners and caretaker make sure you have a good time!
This is our second return to Juuta's Place! And like last year, we had a wonderful time! We came when it was very very cold, almost blizzard conditions, but the road was perfect! Our dogs felt right at home, relaxed and love walking in all the snow! The fire place was great! We were able to share with some friends that live close by. Location is just where we like to stay, close to shops and stores, but far enough away that you can enjoy the beauty of the house, even in the winter! We will return next year! Thank you Trixie and Lynn
tennis court is available.
