"Tranquility Base" is a place where you can lose yourself in the beauty, peace, and quiet of nature as land, sea and sky meet on rugged midcoast Maine. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS ONE WINDOW AIR CONDITIONER, because very few people on the peninsula have central ac since the water surrounding us greatly moderates the temperature. On those few days when it does get hot, in addition to the window ac unit, we have fans that will help pull the cooler ocean air through the apartment. Mountains beckon on the horizon from your apartment windows, as saltwater laps against giant granite boulders. Summery mountain breezes carry the scent of pine trees and tangy salt air through your window. Nearby lighthouses, museums, antique shops, restaurants, and a range of gourmet to simple general stores entice you. Numerous parks and trails offer opportunities for exploration and exercise, including our own one-mile circle loop through the woods and by the water. Your guest apartment is located just outside the picturesque town of Tenants Harbor. It’s 20 minutes from Rockland, and 30 minutes to Camden. The Portland and Acadia National Parks are each a one hour and 30 minute drive. Canada is only three hours to the north. The Port Clyde General Store, where you can get Lobster Benedict for breakfast, is a brief, beautiful, five minute drive. Kayak rentals can be had there too. The East Wind Inn is close by and offers a delicious lobster dinner. Among the many lighthouses is the famous Marshall Point Light, backdrop in the movie "Forrest Gump." Don't miss the best swordfish and local oysters in the world at the award winning "Primo" Restaurant just 20 minutes away. The area has an epicurean feast of great places to dine.
The apartment is a modern second story walk-up with a full bath, two bedrooms, one with a very comfortable queen size mattress and the other with two twins, a full size antique slate top pool table, an efficiency kitchen with a large microwave and a large convection toaster oven and other small appliances as well as a washer and dryer and full size stainless steel refrigerator with ice and water in the door. Free internet and satellite TV.
It is located on the banks of the salt water St. George River, with lobster traps and boats right out back. Across the salt water river is the Olson Homestead, site of the Andrew Wyeth painting "Christina's World", and a museum of his paintings is in nearby Rockland. Bring your hiking gear, and camera with plenty of storage for pictures, and an appetite for fresh Maine cuisine.
In the apartment you will find notebooks with information on local dining, shopping, hiking, boating, museums.
Kayak rentals nearby. Swimming and fishing in the salt water right behind the house are possible. See details that can be found at the end of the amenities section of this listing.
