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.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Newcastle, ME, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
