The Twin Villages of Damariscotta - Newcastle conveniently located only 2 min. off of the major highway, Route 1, in Midcoast Maine. Damariscotta, the 'river of many fishes' in Abernaki Indian, is named for the alewives that annually migrate the Damariscotta River and then 'climb' the amazing fish ladder at Damariscotta Mills in order to spawn in the Lake. The river is also one of the northernmost mating grounds of the primitive and marvelous horseshoe crab. And these waters support seals, ospreys, bald eagles, king fishers, great blue herons, mackerel and stripe bass, just to name a few. Humans have also worked this river for about 13,000 years. Their most famous legacy forms immense, white oyster shell mounds on the riverbanks. These shell heaps are testament to the oyster beds that once produced shellfish one foot in diameter. Today the river produces farmed oysters and mussels you can sample in local restaurants. Mazu, your boat hotel, docks at Schooner Landing Marina where you can paddle our kayaks or canoe from, along the tidal Damariscotta River to catch the magical wildlife, timeless mansions and the working waterfront of oyster farmers, lobstermen and fishermen and visit the marvelous state park, Dodge Point, and its beach. During the day you also have the option of taking an Oyster Frams & Seal Watching Tour and sample the world famous oysters with Damariscotta River Cruises, and in the evening receive a complementary drink on us during the Happy Hour Cruise. Another day maybe walk around the twin villages to shop, visit art galleries, dine in one of the fabulous restaurants or take a short sightseeing trip to the historic lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, Pemaquid Beach, and the Colonial Fort Henry Williams, Boothbay, Round Pond, South Bristol with its swing bridge. If you are up for some outlet shopping, Damariscotta is only 45 min from Freeport's L L Beans and other stores. Portland is 1 hour drive and 45 min to Rockland / Camden.
Or You might want to plan your vacation around one of the fun festivals in town. May has the Alewife Festival, the Pirate Festival is in June, last Sunday of Sept is the Oyster Festival and Columbus Day Weekend is the Pumpkin Festival & Regatta.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: What I do depends on the season and the location. During the summer months in Maine I run Damariscotta River Cruises with my partner, Captain Chip, who was born and raised in Maine, meet amazing people, film, take photos, learn a lot, have fun and tend my organic garden. In the cold months I'm back in New York City and hibernate in the editing room creating documentary films. And somewhere in between I visit my family in Budapest and friends in other parts of the world.
