Property description


PLEASE NOTE: We have created a video showcasing the house and property -- search YouTube for 'seachimes 61422'.

Come and relax at a real Maine hideaway! The town of Friendship is between Boothbay Harbor and Rockland. Property is very secluded at the end of a dirt road on 1.5 acres with 100 feet of frontage on Johnson Cove. Johnson Cove is tidal -- 2 high tides and 2 low tides each day. Large dock and attached float provide easy access for boating and swimming at high tide (eight- to ten-feet deep at high tide, and warmer than the open ocean) and fun clamming at low tide. We provide a kayak and a canoe! Lawn area on 3 sides of the house - great for kids to run around with no traffic worries. This is a dead end street - we are the last house.

Built in 1993, this four-bedroom home has many amenities: contemporary furnishings, high speed wireless internet, river-rock fireplace in the living room, wraparound deck on main living level, upper deck off the master bedroom, and a short walk to the town market and hardware store.

Main level is great for entertaining and features an open kitchen and living/dining area which opens to large deck overlooking the cove, separate TV room, bedroom (double) and full bath (tub/shower).

Second floor includes open shared area, master bedroom (queen) featuring a skylight and access to the upper deck, second bedroom (queen), third bedroom with 2 singles and full bath (tub/shower). Loft has four singles and works great for kids (or smaller adults)!

The ground level has a laundry room, ping pong and foosball tables and allows indoor storage of your gear.

There is also lots of toys, puzzles, games, books, and more for everyone from infant/toddler to adult. Boat rentals available in town.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: This property is jointly owned by two generations of our family. One family lives in Oregon and the other lives in Massachusetts.

Why the Owner Chose Friendship, ME, USA:
We wanted to have a special place to congregate when the family got together for vacations on the east coast. While we would love to stay in this house all summer, we cannot be there all the time and so we make it available to other families looking for a special place to spend time together.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying in a house rather than a hotel makes it much easier for families to gather and spend time together. The house is in a quiet Maine town and we like to walk to the market, the harbor docks, or the school playground. We take day trips to go sightseeing or shopping but love to come home to our quiet house. Over the years we've stocked the house with everything that we like to do while there and make it available to our guests. You'll find a well-stocked kitchen, toys, games, books, movies, and more.
