Property description

All the sights, sounds, and beauty of a quintessential Maine lobstering port lie just outside your door. A clean, cozy retreat where you can observe the activity as the boats deliver the day's catch of lobsters to the open-air restaurant where you can eat them that night. Nearby attractions include day trips to Monhegan Island, kayak rentals, iconic Back Cove (rowboats for guests), Pemaquid Light, and white-sand Pemaquid Beach.
Two cottages that offer two bedrooms, one with two twins and one with a queen bed, living room with fieldstone fireplace and wood provided, one full bath, fully equipped kitchen. Small Weber charcoal grills are available. All linens are included.
Call or email for seasonal rates and availability.
We also have rooms and apartments in our main house. Call for information and rates.
