About the area

The fishing village of New Harbor is located near the tip of the Pemaquid Peninsula. Local shopping, restaurants, galleries, historic sites, and one of Maine's best sandy beaches are all within walking distance. Our lighthouse, featured on the Maine quarter coin, is world famous. A fifteen minute drive to Damariscotta will bring you to a larger, lovely, quaint riverside village with many shops, boutiques, restaurants, cultural activities, movie theater, modern hospital, and several town fun-filled festivals. Boothbay Harbor, with its myriad tourist activities (don't forget to visit the fabulous new botanical gardens), is 35 minutes away. Portland, Freeport, Rockland, Camden, Augusta, and are all within about an hour's drive. You can do as much or as little as you want. Our guide book, "John and Marilyn's Favorite ThingsTo Do While Staying at Suite Thyme Carriage House," has enough suggestions to last several weeks.

“The VERY Best!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2016

If you love rocky ocean shores, the sounds of waves crashing, Adirondack chairs, privacy, immaculately clean surroundings in EVERY way, perfect amenities, comfy furniture and beds, great TV, WiFi, and more than I can mention....you will love Suite Thyme. It was worth every mile of driving from the middle of Iowa for this week in heaven in New Harbor, Maine. Marilyn and John are perfect hosts...attending to every need but never intrusive. They have a real sense of each and every little thing that would be appreciated by their guests....of all ages. Right down to the steps going up to the carriage house. We are in our 70's and stairs aren't always easy for me....but these are wonderful. There are sturdy, a comfortable rise and there are nice railings to make it easy. And, it is worth going up! We enjoyed the very accurate notebooks that provided helpful information about restaurants and other kinds of entertainment in the area. We are so in love with this spot that we spent lots of time in the Adirondack chairs reading, watching the lobster fishermen out at their traps, listening to the waves crash on the rocks, or just staring at the expanse of water as it changed colors. Fresh lobster close by at reasonable prices, lovely art work and souvenirs, wonderful Pemaquid Lighthouse Park, a very good grocery right in the village, lovely walking areas, games and books for indoors days....are some of our favorite things about coming to Suite Thyme. If you have the opportunity to be the guests of Marilyn and John in this lovely place, DO IT. We feel it will be one of your favorite places too.

“Sweet time at "Suite Thyme"”

Beautiful cottage, beautiful views--all the comforsts of home. The nicest place we have EVER rented. Marilyn and John have thought of all the comforts of home. Close to Pemaquid Point, the charming town of Darmiscotta and Shaws Lobster Wharf right around the corner! Can't wait to go back.

Better Than a 5-Star Hotel

My husband and I booked our Maine vacation nearly a year before our arrival date and counted the days off the calendar as we looked forward to our first trip to the east coast in over 30 years...we were not disappointed. Everything was as described in the listing...the cottage, the location, and the view were PERFECT! Not only was the cottage well stocked with absolutely everything we needed, but it was the first rental we didn't have to clean before we unpacked...it even smelled clean.

The living quarters are on the top floor, which provides the best view of the ocean, just a few steps away. Don't miss the sunrise, or having that first cup of coffee on the cottage deck. It is absolutely the best part of the day! We loved watching the lobstermen from the rocks as they pulled their traps on a calm day and the waves crashing against the rocks when the ocean was rough.

Marilyn and John have thought of everything. On the counter near the phone were two binders of information about the area and about everything we needed to know about the cottage. It included emergency phone numbers and details about everything from trash pick-up to the whole-house generator that comes on automatically if power is lost during a storm etc. On the coffee table were directions for operating the remotes for the TV, DVR, Stereo, and gas fireplace.

The Cupboard Cafe was the place to go for breakfast...the omelets and sticky buns were to die for. Shaws Lobster Wharf (where scenes from "Message in a Bottle" were filmed) have the best fried clams in the area and is so close you could walk there. Moody's Diner and Deb's Diner were also among our favorite places to eat at VERY reasonable prices.

We plan to make a vacation at Suite Thyme Cottage a yearly tradition and have already booked a two-week stay for next fall. A shopping trip to LL Bean is on the agenda for next year along with lots of other attractions we just didn't have enough time for during our first stay.

Thank you Marilyn and John for the perfect Maine vacation!

A truly wonderful vacation
5 of 5
Over the past fifteen years we have traveled to a different place twice each year for vacation. This was the absolute best of them all! The house (impeccable and well-equipped), the location, the view, the local area and restaurants, and the owners, John and Marilyn, together made it possible for us to enjoy the perfect vacation--to unwind, relax, and have a wonderful time.

Wonderful Place to stay in Maine

This is the perfect spot to decompress from all of your worries. A beautifully decorated apartment with everything you need. The kitchen if fully stocked with cooking utensils and all of your needs. The view is spectacular with quiet and peaceful surroundings. The owners take great pride in their place and it shows. They are lovely people and make you feel like it is your home. If coming to the Pemquid Peninsula this is a wonderful place to stay.
