Property description

MAZU is a unique B&B, a Bed and Boat located on the Damariscotta River, in midcoast Maine, 2 min off Route 1.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live aboard a boat and have a great home base for all your adventures in midcoast Maine? Step aboard your private yacht, Mazu, a luxurious 42 foot floating vacation rental hotel - floatel - boatel that rides the tides of the scenic Damariscotta River, and experience a unique boating adventure without ever leaving the dock or the mooring.

Imagine relaxing on the deck, inhaling pure ocean air and nautical vibes, drink in hand, the freshest oysters on the table, lobsters in the pot, enjoying your own private sunset between Portland and Bar Harbor! No previous boating experience required. The use of two kayaks and a canoe is included.

ABOUT THE YACHT
The 42-foot boat features elegant bedding, a sleek kitchen, and a spacious deck for sunning and entertaining. There are two state rooms that is perfect for four guests and the boat can sleep up to six.
You can stretch out and relax in the magnificent aft Captain's Cabin, which accommodates a king-size bed and it has its own private head (WC) and shower.
The roomy forepeak stateroom, V-berth, features a queen-size bed, a large hanging locker and a half bath.
The large galley (kitchen) is open at the top so the chef is never isolated from salon conversation. It's complete with an upright refrigerator, electric stove, a large sink, coffee and tea maker.
The attractive dinette, opposite the galley to port (left), seats up to six adults comfortably. By night, it converts to a full-size double bed.
The spacious Main Salon (living room) provides an elegant setting for entertaining. Huge wrap-around windows flood the room with light, painting an ever-changing seascape. A sofa can be converted to a double bed, thus, the boat can accommodate up to eight people.
House Rules:
Make yourself feel at home.

The following is not allowed: 

1. Non smoking facility - smoking is permitted outside on the dock only. 

2. No pets of any kind 

3. NO Parties 

4. No overnight guests without previous approval
We expect to get our boat back in the same condition as you got it :)

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.

 

Owner info

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.
