About Property Manager/Owner
I am the great great granddaughter of Ebenezer Haggett who owned this property with his children and it is titled, "the Haggett Homestead". Ebenezer was famous as a shipbuilder who built the five masted schooner. Ebenezer had his ship building company in Newcastle which is now the Lincoln Home and built such beautiful ships as "the Elizabeth", "the Josephus", "the State of Maine". The craftsman in the home is mirrored after the ships with wainscoting and maple flooring.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Newcastle
Grear weekend getaway. The property is part of Maine history - with the wide pumpkin pine flooring, lovely architecture, quaint parlor and ballroom. Glidden Street was captured in DownEast Magazine as "Newcastle's Lovliest Lane". The countryside and beautiful federal homes provide the setting for Jane Austen's "Emma".
What makes this House unique
Close to town and shops, yet quiet and private; lovely sitting rooms for conversation, reading, quilting knitting; Porch setting which overlooks the Damariscotta River-- great for having coffee in the morning. Spacious rooms for friends and family

Lots of Character
Loved the character of the home. It felt like someone was living there regularly. All the furnishings were of the time period the house was built. We were getting lost only having only 2 couples,so we ended up closing the front 2 sitting rooms off and only using 1/2 of the downstairs. Great location, just enough off the main drag but able to walk to downtown Damariscotta.
Great location - easy walk to downtown
If you appreciate old homes and antiques, this house is for you.
Beautiful Large Home - Convenient location - Boothbay, New Harbor, Wiscasset and Portland
We enjoyed our stay at this property. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are upstairs. The home celebrates the older home - has 3 "living areas" or parlors as our husbands called them. Nice kitchen with all that we needed. For some, the house could have some updates - but if you like classic homes - you will like this home. Has alot of history. We liked the location of this home because it was central to Wiscasset, New Harbor and Boothbay Harbor. We used the home as our base for a couple of days and then drove to Portland Maine airport on the morning we checked out.
A wonderful week at the lovely Shipbuilder home
The home is very spacious and comfortable. There is a parlor which is near the porch and at night I would sit in the rocking chair and hear the old maple trees. The living room is beautifully decorated with artwork and antiques and the kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans. My friends and I enjoyed our morning coffee looking out at the bay windows. The home was very clean and comfortable. It is located near the town od Damariscotta and we walked into town for ice cream and dinner and Mama Mia movie. The claw foot tub helped my aching foot from the walk. It was a great visit and look forward to many more. Kate Warren
Peaceful and historic resisdence
This is an historic property with great atmosphere. It is not a corporate hotel. The rooms are clean and charming. The front porch and atmosphere are from another era. The great thing about this residence is the short walk into town for dining and fun. The original family still owns the home so this is a special place for people who appreciate historical homes.
Historical building - walking distance to downtown
Came for a wedding and this was very centrally located place to stay. It is an older type house with less of the amenities you would find with a house of today (smaller style beds for example), but it has character. House faces a graveyard across the street, so that can be a plus for some or a reason to sleep with the lights on during the night for others. Had a great stay. Thx
It's a great location. Apparently Stephen King wrote about the house in one of his. novels
