As you take the short drive through Raspberry Lane the first thing you'll realize is that it's the perfect mix of seclusion and convenience. The short road curves with the harbor so you can walk right into town, or enjoy the quiet privacy of your vacation spot. Situated on a gentle rise of land, this location overlooks Port Clyde harbor and its working waterfront and sleeps 11 people! There are spaces to park two vehicles. If you enter through the side 'barn' doors, there is a spacious area for you to store all of your adventure gear! Kayaks, skis, bicycles, paddle boards, hiking gear, etc.! Don't forget to bring your swim gear, beautiful Drift Inn Beach is less than a ten-minute walk away! You'll want to take along a bucket or a small tote to carry your sea-treasures back with you! Beach towels are provided for sand castle fun.
Entering the home, you will find a sunny and contemporary kitchen and dining area. This family friendly area features a 4 person sit-up bar so that the chef in your family can interact with everyone while cooking up your favorite meals. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything you might need and more. We've stocked it with all the latest kitchen gadgets!
Situated behind the sit-up bar is a dining room table for six, with views that will take your breath away, and that carry through into the living room area where you and your family can enjoy the harbor scene, play games together or just relax on the sectional couch and enjoy your time away. If you prefer to eat outdoors there is a dining set for 6, a propane grill, and a vista that will make you a Port Clyde vacationer for life!
