4 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Deck, Large Wharf With Moorings
If you are looking for a vacation home that has gorgeous panoramic views of the harbor and
surrounding islands, modern furniture and fixtures, the seclusion of a getaway spot and the
convenience of a short walk to the center of Port Clyde village, you have found your next vacation
spot. Located at the end of a dead end road, this home provides you with ample privacy. It is also
the location of a small working dock so you won't feel secluded. There is a single car garage on
site and space for an additional vehicle to park in front of the house.
This beautiful wharf-side home features a quiet breezeway as you enter the home, a perfect spot
to read a book, or for the adventure-minded, it's a perfect place to keep your kayaks, skis,
bicycles, hiking gear, etc. As you pass through the hallway, to the left you'll find the first of four
bedrooms; a beautiful queen-bed room with a large closet, nightstands and a lovely wooded view. To the
right you will find a full bathroom complete with a double sink, large shower and toilet. Each
bathroom has Maine soaps and plush L.L. Bean towel sets. Moving past the bathroom takes you
to the second queen bedroom. This room is beautifully equipped with an iron canopy bed, a large
closet, dresser, nightstand and has a view of the harbor. If you sleep with the window cracked, the
sounds of the ocean will lull you into an amazing slumber!
Continuing back to the entry hall you face a large harbor-view window with an 8 person dining room
table in front of it, the perfect place for a family dinner. Moving to the left, you enter a fully
equipped kitchen with ample counter space and all the modern appliances you might hope for:
full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, Keurig, standard coffee maker and let's not forget a
steam pot for Maine lobster! And those are just a few of the kitchen amenities. A side door off the
kitchen takes you out to the deck which is equipped with a propane grill, an initial tank of propane
and a large exterior dining table and chairs for friends and family!
Heading to the right of the dining area is a breathtaking living room. Large windows make up the
majority of the ocean-facing windows in this room. There is no bad seat! For your relaxation this
room has a love seat facing the stunning local rock propane fireplace, and a love seat facing the
large flat screen TV. The TV is equipped with basic cable television, has a Blu-ray player, and the
house has wireless internet as well. In addition you will find numerous board and outside games
available for your family's enjoyment! Such classics as Monopoly, Scrabble, The Camp Game and
backyard bean toss. Something for everyone!
Off the living room is a staircase going down to the lower level. Reaching the bottom of the stairs
you are immediately greeted with another comfortable seating area, complete with writing desk.
There is a TV in this room (for DVD's only) and a love seat facing a wood burning
fireplace (firewood not included). There are also two comfortable chairs positioned perfectly for
reading, or relaxing out of the sun. If you keep the french door open you will be in full view of your
family outside playing lawn games and exploring the rocky shore area. Because of its position in
the harbor the shoreline provides great opportunity for overturning rocks and finding treasures
such as sea-glass, beautiful shells and the occasional crab! If you're more of a spectator, there are
Adirondack chairs on the lawn so you can relax in the sun, or gather around the propane fire pit in
the evenings. There is also a telescope at this location, and we've been told this is a perfect spot
for gazing out into the vast universe. The sound of crashing waves adds to the ambiance, no matter which activity suits you best.
Continuing through the sitting room you will come to the third of four bedrooms which has two twin
beds. This room can be converted to a king bed upon request, features ocean-facing windows,
nightstand, closet and a writing desk. The next room is the fourth bedroom which features a
queen bed, nightstands, a large dresser with mirror, ample closet space and a comfortable chair.
This room is perfect for lighter sleepers as it's nestled in a quiet area of the home. All rooms are
equipped with L.L. Bean bedding and pillows to assure a restful sleep while you are vacationing.
Finishing off the lower level is a laundry room with high efficiency washer, dryer and initial laundry
supplies. The next room over is the second full bath. This room features a toilet, sink with
vanity, shower/tub combo and ample storage space. This home offers all the comforts of home,
with all the luxury of an ocean getaway. You will find 8 L.L. Bean beach towels in the laundry
closet provided for fun at the near-by Drift Inn Beach!
Area Amenities: It's a short 12-minute walk to the village post office, ice cream store, restaurants, galleries and the Port Clyde General Store, which is open daily, specializing in morning coffee and pastries, corn, blueberries, native lobsters, fresh cut meats, and all grocery supplies. This is a pleasantly old and proud Maine community with its own library in Tenants Harbor, a great school, fire department, rescue ambulance and is serviced by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. 1/3 of all Maine lobsters come from this county, named after Henry Knox, George Washington's chief artillery officer in the Revolutionary War of 1776. You can learn about him on the peninsula, as well as enjoy programs offered all season at Montpelier, the Knox mansion and museum. Experience local and wharf dining, Wyeth art tours by land and water, Monhegan Island ferry adventures to see Maine seabirds including puffins and American bald eagles, picnicking at Marshall Point Lighthouse, and good ice cream. These are all landmark features of nearby Port Clyde village.
Provided for your convenience are initial supplies of the following: linens, bath towels, washcloths,
hand towels and beach towels, your first tank of propane for the fire pit and gas grill, dish soap,
dish washing soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, basic cable, wireless
internet and a home phone (long distance is not included). This location has a DVD player

Ideal home away from home
This house is well outfitted with gorgeous views. We did not want to leave to return home which is unusual for us. Very convenient to the town of Port Clyde and the ferries. Lots to do in the area. Why go anywhere else?
Thank you for staying with us! See you next year!
Super clean and very comfortable.
'This property has a great view of the Port Clyde Harbor. Property manager was very easy to work with. The house seemed freshly painted with beautiful modern furnishings. We loved sitting by the river rock gas fireplace at night. The beds were super comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. We put the lobster pot to good use!
Thank you for staying with us!
Excellent vacation home, gorgeous view, house was beautiful and clean, easy contact with manager, will definitely stay again
Thank you for staying with us!
Great place to get away and be close at the same time
Perfect little piece of the harbor that gave privacy, but also allowed us to watch all the lobster boats and pleasure boats going back and forth. Saw a seal by the wharf and had a bald eagle land 10 feet from us on the back lawn. The location was an easy half mile walk to the village of Port Clyde and little over a mile to Drift Inn Beach. Both the Beach and Village were Dog friendly, which was a huge plus for us. Our family loved the Dip Net (try the crab and lobster cakes...wow!), the Ice Cream shop and the Squid Ink Coffee shop. Very convenient to the Monhegan Ferry (took the dog on that too) and for day trips up to the Camden area.
Veronika and her team were very accommodating, responsive and helpful, sending us emails of things to do in the area. Some minor items will need repair or maintenance over the winter such as some light switches in the lower level, the filtration for the water system and some of the cranks for the windows. However, the property was in real great shape given we were there near the end of the Summer. All the furnishings were very comfortable and clean. Truly, a great place to go and stay on vacation!
Thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you next year!
