About Barbara Warner

I have lived in LIncoln County for 47 years and raised my family here.

I love the beauty of this area and the life style…

enjoying nature, family, and good friends.

I've always wanted to be on the water, and this house is literally ' on the water'.

My husband and I bought this house to enjoy with our kids and grandkids , and to be able to share this wonderful experience with you.

Barbara Warner purchased this house in 2013

Why Barbara Warner chose Mid-Coast & Islands

There is no other property that has the sort of magical quality of this home. It is a unique, historical building that couldn't be built today.

With it's high ceilings and windows opening to the water on three sides, it really is like floating. Having the lake and all the activity around you is really an amazing experience.

What makes this house unique

I knew I wanted this house the minute I walked in and looked down the hall through the huge glass doors directly to the lake! Amazing view!

You can let the kids play at the shallow beach, while the bigger kids jump into the deeper water on the other side of the bridge, lounge on the dock or canoe or kayak down the lake.

Because I've lived in the are for 45 years, I can direct you to some of the little know spots that only the locals know.

You can enjoy the lake one day and spend the next by the ocean, all minutes away.

There is great fishing right off the dock, or deep sea fishing in nearby Boothbay Harbor.

Hidden Gem on the water

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend if you have a family looking for the comforts of home in a beautiful lakefront location. The owners think of everything and provide all of the essentials so you can arrive worry free. We shared the home with another family and the kids had a blast. There are kayaks, fishing poles, swim gear for the kids and a beautiful dock for the adults to relax and enjoy the view. There is also a grocery store close by, hiking trails and a beautiful lighthouse. We will be back for sure! Thank you Charlie and Barbara.

Unique Spot

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our visit! The property could not have been any closer to the water. The house was wonderfully open and airy and absolutely spotless. The owners live right on the property on the first floor and were always available. They went out of their way to make sure that we were well looked after.

Like staying on a houseboat.

  • 5 of 5

This rental property is wonderful. I have so many terrific things to say about it. From the moment I booked, Barbara (rental owner) was totally available for questions via text, phone or email and always got back to me in a timely fashion. I rented this house as a surprise 5 day get away for my husband's 70th birthday. Our one son, wife and 19 month old and other son and girlfriend also came for the surprise. It was the perfect place for our whole family. Views are spectacular, space is kid and adult friendly, spacious, and conveniently located. I don't think the pictures do it justice. Also not pictured is the third floor which is where our granddaughter stayed. It is a playroom with three little rooms off of it, each with a twin bed. It is percent for young kids. The place is so well equipped.....games, fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, tons of kids toys, bath products, washer/dryer, huge TV, grill, beach chairs, kayaks, canoe, fishing gear, inflatable water tubes and such. The beds are super comfortable and the house was super clean. The little sand beach was the perfect, safe spot for me to hang out with my granddaughter. I could go on and on.

Charlie and Barbara are very friendly and accommodating and will help to make your stay more enjoyable any way they can. They live on the first floor of this rental but they were not intrusive. I would recommend this property to anyone, and so would everyone in my family. They have already said we should rent the same place every year - and for at least a week. It also did t hurt that we had beautiful weather But having said that, there are a couple of drawbacks that reviewers have already mentioned - the swimming areas on either side of the house can often times be quite noisey with young kids and families. But things quiet down after sundown. The master bedroom and one other guest room do not have walls going all the way to the ceiling. So everything can be heard. You can see what I mean in a couple of the pictures of the interior.

Lake Damarisotta and the surrounding areas are beautiful and can thoroughly be enjoyed from this fabulous rental property.

Awesome !

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the lake. An impressive wide open living area. It was clean and well furnished. We loved the closeness to Damariscotta. The one thing we did not know was that 2 of the bedrooms had no ceiling. So privacy was somewhat compromised. But in all, an awesome place.

breathtaking views and great house

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with family. There were 8 of us and the house was plenty big enough to not feel crowded. The lake is absolutely beautiful. We got to see 2 loons regularly. Even a rainy day was nice. The house is literally on the water. The view from the living room is breathtaking. You have access to kayaks and a canoe. The furnishings are great. I fell in love with the table they had made from a beautiful piece of wood. The place is well stocked with towels, kitchen items and even a bunch of beach towels. It was a bit cool so only a few of us went swimming but the water was beautiful and clean. There is a little town beach right next to the house that can be quite crowded on a hot summer day - kids jumping off the bridge and having a ball. So, if you are looking for a really quiet place, this would not be the place for you on a hot summer day. But, if you enjoy the sounds of kids having fun, you will love it...we did.

Barbara, the host, was fantastic, she answered my multitude of questions and accommodated all our needs. She and her husband live on the first floor which came in handy when we had questions but she totally gave us our space. My family wants to do it again (and some of them are New Yorkers that didn't want to drive to the middle of nowhere..now they love it!)

The town of Damariscotta, only 5 minutes away, is a quintessential New England town. They have some great shops in town including sale of local artisan products and a number of the restaurants in town sell local paintings. Don't miss Damariscotta Pottery tucked behind Main street - you can see the potters at work. For a nice meal, I recommend the Damariscotta River Grill. For oysters and other seafood (good haddock sandwich) try Schooner Landing with outdoor seating on the river.

The house is ideally located on Damariscotta Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Maine, in one of the most interesting areas on the Eastern coast of the US. If you ever decide to leave the tranquil beauty of the property, there are many opportunities for recreation and culture.

The greatest attraction is the lake that you will literally be on, Damariscotta Lake. It's a pristine 13 mile lake with great fishing, swimming, and boating opportunities. Listen to the loons otherworldly song as the dappled sunlight is reflected onto the 12' ceiling above you.

You might even find that a loon pops up beside you when you are out in the kayaks or canoe we provide at no extra charge.

The twin villages of Damariscotta/Newcastle are home to many wonderful restaurants and shops. There is a large artists community, and the downtown is filled with many unique items that can't be found anywhere else. The craftsmanship extends to the restaurants and cafes where you'll find amazing food served in beautiful settings.

Lobsters, clams, mussels, fresh from the ocean to your table.

The Damariscotta area is known for it's aquaculture.

A short drive will get you to classic Maine locations like: the Pemaquid Peninsula, which has a picturesque lighthouse on the rugged coast and a large sandy beach perfect for the kids; the Boothbay Peninsula, which has a bustling harbor, a 18-hole golf course and amazing botanical gardens; Wiscassett, which is filled with many quaint shops and extremely well preserved traditional homes. With-in 45 minutes you have: the beautiful villages of Camden and Rockport; Portland, the cultural hub of Maine; Freeport with it's many shopping outlets (and LL Bean); and Bath with it's Maine Maritime Museum.

There are many businesses set up to provide access to the ocean and one of our favorites is a cruise on the Hardy Boat to Monhegan Island. Grab a drink and a lobster at Shaw's Wharf while you wait for your boat to depart. Once on the Island, walk the loop trail around the island and keep your eyes open for the fairy houses as you come back into the village. A new micro-brewery and multiple artists studios can keep you occupied until the boat departs for the mainland.

Another great boat trip is Chip's cruise down the Damariscotta River, which departs out of Schooner Landing. Lounge on an old riverboat while rubbing elbows with some of the most entertaining characters you're likely to meet.

The area has fun events throughout the year. Some of the must sees are: the Pirate Rendezvous (late-June); Round Pond Parade (4th of July); Olde Bristol Days and Lobster Boat Races (Mid-August); Pemaquid Oyster Festival (late September); Pumpkin Festival and Pumpkin Boat Races ( Columbus Day weekend). There are festivals up and down the coast just about every weekend during the summer and fall, and you're sure to find something that interests you.
