Description of the Damariscotta vacation home rental
Spectacular water views from every side!

Right at the lake's beach.

0ver 2,500 square feet, with 3-bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths on the 2nd floor, and room for 5 kids on the 3rd floor, or use it as a private retreat. There is a very spacious living and dining room area with a very functional galley kitchen. There are views of the water on every side!

Remodeled by an architect in 2005 and in great condition with new furnishings, the property literally sits in the lake, with only the entry wall on the ground. There is a small public beach on one side(great for the kids) and a park with a rock edge for swimming on the other. One side has deep water and the other shallow.

You can sit on the dock on the back of the house to watch the sunset or look at the stars at night, and there is no extra charge for the use of the kayaks or canoe to explore the lake.

There is parking for two cars across the street. The area is lightly trafficked and a great place to stroll around and enjoy the lush landscape and colonial buildings in this historic village.

You are only 5 minutes from town, with excellent restaurants

and interesting shops.

Those who have stayed here have described it as magical , heavenly, and like being on a boat.

The bedrooms include (1) King sized; (2) Queen sized (3) Twin sized beds or queen, if you prefer. the 3rd floor has cubbies for 3 more beds and a double futon.

Dining table seats 8.

Living Room has a 55' TV. Wireless internet provided. Stocked with games and books for your leisure time.

Unique architectural design allows air to circulate and light to fill the rooms.

The loons, osprey, seagulls, etc. are a delight to see and there is excellent fishing.

Area Information
The house is ideally located on Damariscotta Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Maine, in one of the most interesting areas on the Eastern coast of the US. If you ever decide to leave the tranquil beauty of the property, there are many opportunities for recreation and culture.

The greatest attraction is the lake that you will literally be on, Damariscotta Lake. It's a pristine 13 mile lake with great fishing, swimming, and boating opportunities. Listen to the loons otherworldly song as the dappled sunlight is reflected onto the 12' ceiling above you.

You might even find that a loon pops up beside you when you are out in the kayaks or canoe we provide at no extra charge.

The twin villages of Damariscotta/Newcastle are home to many wonderful restaurants and shops. There is a large artists community, and the downtown is filled with many unique items that can't be found anywhere else. The craftsmanship extends to the restaurants and cafes where you'll find amazing food served in beautiful settings.

Lobsters, clams, mussels, fresh from the ocean to your table.

The Damariscotta area is known for it's aquaculture.

A short drive will get you to classic Maine locations like: the Pemaquid Peninsula, which has a picturesque lighthouse on the rugged coast and a large sandy beach perfect for the kids; the Boothbay Peninsula, which has a bustling harbor, a 18-hole golf course and amazing botanical gardens; Wiscassett, which is filled with many quaint shops and extremely well preserved traditional homes. With-in 45 minutes you have: the beautiful villages of Camden and Rockport; Portland, the cultural hub of Maine; Freeport with it's many shopping outlets (and LL Bean); and Bath with it's Maine Maritime Museum.

There are many businesses set up to provide access to the ocean and one of our favorites is a cruise on the Hardy Boat to Monhegan Island. Grab a drink and a lobster at Shaw's Wharf while you wait for your boat to depart. Once on the Island, walk the loop trail around the island and keep your eyes open for the fairy houses as you come back into the village. A new micro-brewery and multiple artists studios can keep you occupied until the boat departs for the mainland.

Another great boat trip is Chip's cruise down the Damariscotta River, which departs out of Schooner Landing. Lounge on an old riverboat while rubbing elbows with some of the most entertaining characters you're likely to meet.

The area has fun events throughout the year. Some of the must sees are: the Pirate Rendezvous (late-June); Round Pond Parade (4th of July); Olde Bristol Days and Lobster Boat Races (Mid-August); Pemaquid Oyster Festival (late September); Pumpkin Festival and Pumpkin Boat Races ( Columbus Day weekend). There are festivals up and down the coast just about every weekend during the summer and fall, and you're sure to find something that interests you.

What a great condo! It fits four people very comfortably. It looks exactly as depicted in the pictures online. It was clean and had many dishes and extra supplies. The Damariscotta area is beautiful with great restaurants, shops, a walking trail just down the road and the best ice cream; also very close by. Kristen was great; answering my many questions quickly.
