Stunning and Beautiful Stay

“ Excellent ”
October 25, 2014
We stayed at this property in mid-October. What an incredible time to visit! The foliage was breathtaking, and staying in this house just made everything better. First of all, it has a water view from the expansive windows which makes you feel like you're staying in an elegant and upscale tree house (in the best positive sense!!!). We went down to the water every evening with a glass of wine to watch the sunset over the water. It was amazing. The house itself is beautifully constructed and modern. One could imagine this house somewhere in the mountains of Sweden. It has clean lines and beautiful wooden beams across the high ceilings. The bedrooms are quite large and well appointed, with the addition of radiant heat which is whisper quiet. We didn't use the wood stove, but I imagine it would be quite cozy on a chilly evening. We booked this house primarily because of the location and the kitchen. I'm a food writer and my husband and I love to cook. The kitchen was fantastic (although we did bring our own sous vide machine and slow cooker, which we wouldn't expect any house to have in stock!), particularly as it has an open living plan and you can look out the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water as you cook. A dream! We loved the long driveway through the forest to the house and the private, quiet location. This is an excellent place to unwind and relax in nature. The nearby town of Damariscotta was such a pleasure to find. It has a natural foods co-op, the quality of which you would expect to find in a large city, plus some great restaurants. They had a pumpkin festival which we missed, but we did catch the huge carved pumpkins up and down the street. Talk about the quintessential New England autumn experience. It doesn't get any better than this. We would recommend this house to any of our friends, and we're planning on coming back next year. This area of Maine is so beautiful. We made short trips to Camden, Owl's Nest, Boothbay Harbor, Bath and more, all of which are pretty close.
