About the property

Breathtaking Scenery, Pebble Beach, Pool, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Deep-Wa

Truly “a spectacular location’ are always the words of first-time visitors to The Point. Old friends returning say “you can never get enough of the view”. Located at the very end of Gun Point, the most southerly peninsula on Great Island - The Dostie Family welcomes you to The Point.

Relax and enjoy the stunning vista or take a dip in the solar-heated saltwater pool. Hike the two-mile quiet private road or explore the shoreline for natural treasures. Skip stones from the beach or paddle the sheltered cove in search of seals. Whatever you choose, you will soon be lost to your surroundings - Maine’s natural beauty at its best.

The main house has four bedrooms and will accommodate eight comfortably. The first floor has an open floor plan with a combined kitchen, dining room and living area. The bedrooms are located on the second floor. The kitchen contains all the equipment needed for your lobster dinner or your breakfast toast. The internet keeps you connected. Cable service and a large screen TV are available for the rare occasion when you find yourself indoors. The home is clean and comfortable like that special sweater or your favorite jeans. Not fancy, but with everything you’ll need for one of the most memorable times of your life. If we don’t have it – you don’t need it!

Site amenities include an outdoor gas grill, patio furniture, canoe and a fire pit. The saltwater pool is heated with solar panel on the roof of the cabana. With prior arrangements, boaters have access to the dock and mooring. If you choose to bring your own boat it can be launched directly from the beach in front. On the east shore there is a sheltered cove with a deep-water wharf and float system where you can dock your boat. There is plenty of room to park two vehicles as well as a boat trailer.

Stunning house, amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (two families of four) had a fantastic vacation at The Point. Everything about the house was meticulously thought out for maximum guest comfort and enjoyment. With air temperatures in the high 70s during our week, we didn't necessarily expect to spend a lot of time in the pool, but I was wrong--not only kids but also grown-ups spent whole days swimming and relaxing by the pool, which was warm and sparkling. We spent hours on the back deck of the house, sitting at the umbrella tables and enjoying the absolutely spectacular view, and roasted marshmallows at the fire pit on our last night. The house, furniture, beds, linens, towels, etc were all in excellent condition and everything was thoughtfully provided. The Dostie family were superb hosts and everyone we met on Gun Point was very welcoming. The location feels gorgeously remote but is actually very convenient to Brunswick (less than 20 min) for supermarket shopping and restaurant-going. A perfect house and a perfect vacation!

A Seaside Slice of Heaven!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My recent 3 week stay at "The Point" was a wonderful and the most relaxing vacation I have had in a very long time. The Panoramic View of the Ocean was mesmerizing and calming in my way too busy life. I was able to enjoy every meal out on the expansive wrap around deck with Sun Umbrellas. The Saltwater Pool was sheer bliss and always a comfortable temperature. Everything that I needed was there and it was spotless when I checked in.

The Hosts paid attention to every detail and made it so easy for me. They were wonderful and kind people who really care about their Guests experience.

I would highly recommend this property as it is the whole package and incredibly well priced for what you are receiving in return.

I was sad when I had to leave and return back home but you can bet that I am already signed up to return next year.

Maine Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed one of the most perfect vacations in Maine, and most of it due to this house. It's on a point in Harpswell and you have what feels like a 360 view of the ocean. The wildlife, surrounding it, is also magical, from birds to tidal pools, even spotted a seal. Our girls spent hours picking up hermit crabs, crabs, star fish, snails and collecting shells. The pool is large and well stocked with items. The owners, a ling standing family on the point, are friendly, caring and on hand to help as needed. The house is clean and well taken care of, with a better than most stocked kitchen. And though we're not the outdoorsy athletic type, we could see kayakers all day long. I highly recommend this place, we hope to be back next summer.

Heaven in Harpswell

  • 5 of 5

The Point allowed us all of the privacy that we were wanting The house has a very homey feeling because of the comfortable beds, couches, chairs and distinctive touches such as beautiful stained glass décor. The bathroom upstairs is huge with plenty of counter space for the 7 of us. The walls of windows and wraparound deck facing the ocean allow for peaceful gazing. The backyard was perfect for my granddaughters to play soccer. The archway to the sea was their goal! The saltwater pool was warm and had all of the toys that we needed. Jack responded promptly when we needed his help. All of the Dostie family members that we met were so kind and filled with fascinating information about Harpswell. Thank you. Monica, Anne, Sarah, Katherine, Jessica, Ella and Addison

Our family enjoyed the privacy, the view and the accommodations which turned this into the best vacation we ever had! We are so looking forward to next year to do it all over again. Many thanks to the generous family who allowed us to share their well loved home. I am sure they have plenty of cherished memories from long ago.
