Seaworthy is a 1929 fisherman's cottage located in New Harbor, Maine. Seaworthy is newly and painstakingly renovated providing modern conveniences and original Maine craftsmanship. Renovation includes a spacious new deck where you can watch the boats come in. The first floor bedroom has a full size bed and an adjoining full bath. The large 400 square foot master bedroom has a queen size bed, seating area, and lovely harbor views. The third bedroom has a full size bed and great harbor views. Seaworthy has two full bathrooms one on each level, a large living room, laundry room, and a large eat in full kitchen. Every room has gleaming wood floors. Most rooms feature views of the harbor. We offer a newly renovated home that is beautiful, comfortable, full of art, antiques, and all things Maine. Please note: The stairs to the second floor are quite steep and may not be suitable for some guests.
Seaworthy is situated on a hill overlooking the harbor in New Harbor Maine-one of Maine's most picturesque working harbors. You’ll watch the sun rise and set, the lobster boats come and go, and the ever changing tides. The lobster wharf where boats come and go bringing in their lobster catch is across the street. The freshest most delicious seafood is available at the wharf. Seagulls circle the harbor and seals are often spotted in the harbor. You can sit and watch the activity from the deck or the many windows in the house. Seaworthy's roots come from a working fishing family and is a perfect home to visit if you love the ocean and Maine coast. Seaworthy is an all season home so you can enjoy the fall and winter months as well as the spring and summer seasons. C.E. Riley and Son Grocer is located within a mile of the home and is open all year. They have a wonderful deli and bakery at the store. There are many things to do in each season.
The sights just outside Seaworthy are spectacular. You may explore the beautiful rocky Maine coast or just sit and enjoy the ebb and flow of the ocean surf all within walking distance. Rachel Carson Preserve is a quarter mile from the home; Pemaquid Beach and Maine's most photographed lighthouse just 3 miles away. The ferry to Monhegan island is located at the lobster wharf across the street, just steps from the house. During summer months thru fall you can take the 12 mile ride to Monhegan island for a day trip or take seal and Puffin tours. October is spectacular for the amazing leaf colors splashed across the region.
The home is an hour and fifteen minutes north of Portland and 2.5 hours north of Boston and Manchester which makes a flight in very easy. The coastal route to Seaworthy wanders thru and near many beautiful towns such as Wells, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, Bath, Wiscasset, and Damariscotta. There are many opportunities for day trips north and south of the house. There are many antique shops and art galleries for every taste.
These are some of our favorite things to do and we hope you’ll have a chance to find your own too!
