Car: Recommended

Sweeping Views of Muscongus Bay from this bright and sunny cottage on the shores of the Pemaquid Peninsula. You can relax on the Oceanside deck and watch the crashing surf on the distant ledges off New Harbor Cove. The property has lawns and gardens in every direction and a path that leads down to the shorefront. While exploring the shorefront where you can discover ancient sea glass and rounded boulders that have been tossed by the sea for thousands of years. You may also find an occasional lobster buoy that has escaped the twine in the pounding surf. If you chose to walk south of the cottage on the shoreline road you will come upon the Rachael Carson Salt Pond Preserve in about 1/2 mile. This is a wonderful area to explore with children and discover the mysteries of the ocean life in the 'Salt Pond' Traveling a little further south you will find 'Shaws Lobster Wharf & Bar. This is a wonderful restaurant to dine on Maine Lobsters, Haddock Sandwiches or Damariscotta Oysters on the half-shell. If Boat Cruises are your pleasure you can catch aride on the 'Hardy Boat' and take a day trip out to Monhegan Island which is a few miles of shore. The 'Hardy Boat' also does whale watching trips and viewing of seabirds. If you decided to travel to Pemaquid Point Lighthouse it is just a 10 minute drive south down Rt 130 to the end of the Pemaquid Peninsula. The lighthouse was built in 1824 and is featured on the Maine State quarter. The lighthouse has an educational fishermans museum which is a treat for all ages. The views from the site are splendid and there are some dramatic ledges that go down to the surf. You can drive a view minutes to Pemaquid Beach which is a perfect place for a family swim and nature activities. Nearby Colonial Pemaquid is one of the earliest settlements of European occupation in North America.Archaeological excavations have unearthed many foundations from the17th century, many related to thehistoric fort William-Henry which is nearby. enjoy your visit to New Harbor & Round Pond fishing villages with fish houses and fishermans coops where you can purchase lobsters and clams fresh from the boats. The are many festivals and events that occur in the summer months and they can be found at the Damaricotta Chamber of Commerce.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My wife and I live along the Sheepscot River and enjoy walking on the shorefront.

Why the Owner Chose New Harbor, Bristol, ME, USA:
This cottage and the area has always attracted me as on of the prettiest waterfronts in New England. It is so quintessential Maine classic oceanfront without being tacky.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I am currently a Real Estate Broker with Newcastle Square Realty and this was the most charming cottage I had been in for the last 10 years. I decided that I wanted to spend a few years enjoying the ocean without launching into my sailboat. The cottage is as close to the ocean as you can be without getting soaked.
