About the Property

Beautiful house in quiet river village, with optional use of attached workshop!

Beautiful Greek Revival home with wide wrap around porches poised for sunset views over the tidal Medomak valley and river. Set on 3 acres of hillside, and a 5 minute walk to the quiet village of Waldoboro and its town dock (kayaking/canoeing, etc), this is a peaceful getaway home close to so many beautiful parks, waterways, and other more famous areas of mid midcoast Maine (but more crowded!), such as Damariscotta, Rockland, Camden, Belfast, Acadia. In summers charter a small skiff ride down our river or other launches nearby (explore the islands around Muscongus Bays, include a picnic or stop for a lobster roll in Round Pond by boat!), or in the winter sit by the wood stove and the fireplace, and consider cooking at the working wood cook stove.

Rooms are lovingly furnished with owners' finds from antique and flea markets, and virtually every room has a working turntable with a handful of records ready to play (or bring your own!). This house is the primary home of it's owners, Paul and Erica, and in wanting to share it's beauty, they hand it over to visitors to take opportunities to visit family and sail the coast, or they stay in the barn loft to focus on their studio work. Contact is advised prior to booking to assure latest updates in availability!

In the attached post and beam barn is a well appointed metal and wood shop, available upon request for guided use and/or furniture to sculpture, we can arrange to be a sort of Maker Space B&B! We also offer a 15% discount off our handmade wares to guests and their friends & family, purchased at the house or at our website.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Paul and Erica relocated here recently to live in a quieter and more environmentally rich location, after living on their sailboat in Boston Harbor for 3 1/2 years. They also moved and operate their business, Magma Metalworks, in the attached post and beam barn, where lodgers can also arrange to receive instruction on custom metal work techniques (including welding and brazing for sculpture or furniture for example), or vintage motorbike maintenance or restoration (ask them for more details and package discounts). Hand made metal wares can also be bought at a 15% discount to renters and their guests.

Why the Owner Chose Waldoboro, Waldoboro, ME, USA:
Quiet and out of the hectic tourist towns, walking distance to town and boat launch, and other convenient amenities of a small village. The house is beautiful, with tall ceilings and many large windows, with a beautiful hillside pasture and Ash forest that lead to acres of town land with trails. Beautiful views of the Medomak Valley and the tidal river from the house, and close to an incredible choice of many trails and cultural entertainment.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Optional extras include chartering a skiff down the Medomak River, and/or getting a welding/metalworking lesson in the barn studio. If interested, please inquire!
