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 coastal Maine hideaway! The charming little town of Friendship is located between Boothbay Harbor and Rockland, and our property is tucked away at the very end of a secluded dirt road. The house stands on 1.5 acres of land with 100 feet of frontage on Johnson Cove, a tidal cove that has 2 high tides and 2 low tides each day. There is a large dock with an attached float that provide easy access for boating and swimming at high tides, during which the water is about eight to ten feet deep and warmer than the open ocean. We provide a kayak and a canoe, and if you are interested there are boat rentals available in town! As for low tide activities on the cove, there is always the fun option of clamming. The house also has a lawn area surrounding 3 sides, which is a great space for kids to run around with no traffic worries, as Shipyard Road is a dead end street and we are the last house.

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

The main floor of the house is great for entertaining and features an open kitchen and living/dining area which has access to the large deck overlooking the cove. Also includes a separate TV room/Den, a bedroom (double) and a full bath (tub/shower).

The second level includes an open shared space, the master bedroom (queen) featuring a skylight and access to the upper deck, a second bedroom (queen), a third bedroom (2 twins) and the second full bath (tub/shower). Also has access to a loft space that has three singles and one double, and works great for kids (or the adventurous adult)!

The ground floor has a laundry room, ping pong and foosball tables, and allows for indoor storage of any gear you may have.

House includes many toys, puzzles, games, books, and more for everyone to enjoy, from toddlers to teens to adults.

Location

Town of Friendship, Maine is a cute little coastal town. We provide at the house many activities including: canoeing and kayaking in the cove, playing board games, and hanging out by the fire at night.

 

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 enjoy taking walks to the market, the harbor docks, or even the school playground. We take day trips to go sightseeing along the coast and shopping, but love to come home to our quiet home in Friendship. 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 it well-stocked with toys, games, books, movies, and more!
