Quiet, Rest, & Relaxation on Historic Pemaquid Harbor

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

You are invited to enjoy one of the prettiest and most peaceful spots on the East Coast (or anywhere, for that matter). We have found Pemaquid Harbor's perfect mix of sea, breeze, woodlands, history, and quiet to be the perfect getaway tonic. The pace is peaceful and low key, not noisy and fast-paced as at commercial resorts.

The house is situated on three quarters of an acre right on the harbor. The view is spectacular, as the photo will attest. A path leads down to our dock where we have approximately 75 feet of ocean frontage. The nine- to 11-foot tide leaves raises and lowers our private dock, runway and float high and dry twice a day.

The joys here are many, but modern conveniences are relatively few. There is no television, but there are plenty of books. For your convenience, there is a CD player/AM/FM stereo. High-speed WI-FI is provided, but there is no resident computer (and a wireless card or Ethernet cable port on your computer is required). The additional 'one-quarter' bath listed above is an outdoor (but fully enclosed) shower for communing with nature. The indoor bath includes a tub and shower.

The three bedrooms include two with queen-size beds and one equipped with a set of bunk beds. Additional sleeping space is available on a full-size sleep sofa in the living room.

In short, this is a family summer cottage designed to provide a comfortable and casual vacation equal to the spirit of Maine itself. No pets and absolutely no smoking, please.

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a magical week in Pemaquid and this home was a big part of the fun. It's quiet, relaxing, and remote. The scenery and the water view were stunning. We absolutely loved every day and night we had there.

Highlights include the dock where we parked our kayaks and did yoga every day, the outdoor shower, the sweet little kitchen, and the proximity to Pemaquid Seafood - by far the best meal out we had.

Beautiful Pemaquid Harbor Front Cottage, Well Suited for Families!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful home was perfect! The living area is large enough to accommodate a two and a five year old and all their toys, yet provided enough space for adult privacy. The beds were comfortable with freshly laundered linens. The top bunk is too high for small children, but would be perfect for an adult, so a blow up mattress might be a consideration.

The view is remarkable and although the walk to the dock is steep, once there, the waterfront is beautiful. We spent lots of time on the deck, relaxing with cookouts and family. We drove to Pemaquid Beach three times, ate at A-Cho's (wonderful chicken wings, rice and rangoons), took the seal watch at Hardy Boat Cruises. Of course we went to Renny's, then had ice cream on Main Street in Damariscotta.

We had a simply wonderful and relaxing vacation! Thank you again for letting us stay in your beautiful home!

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to this area of Maine. The cottage completely exceeded my expectations- it was so cozy and comfortable and felt just like home. The dock was so much fun- our kids loved spending time there in the morning and after sightseeing. The house was great for young kiddos (ours range from 21 months to 7 years); only thing is the bunk beds were meant for kids a little older than ours. Pemaquid is so beautiful; thank you for opening up your home to us. We have done a decent amount of VRBOs and this home is top notch- clean, comfortable and private in a beautiful setting.

Beautiful location & lovely home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying in this lovely Pemaquid Harbor Home!! Amazing view from the yard & the big picture window over the dining table. We relaxed in the sun on the floating dock & enjoyed fresh seafood at Pemaquid Seafood right up the street. This was such a peaceful escape for us!! There are great sites to visit close by (Pemaquid Light, Boothbay Harbor, siteseeing cruises out of New Harbor, etc). The home is stocked & comfortable & the owner is friendly & helpful!! We had a great vacation!!

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

My family (kids 4, 8 and 10) stayed on a November tidepooling expedition. It was incredible! So great to come back to this cottage everyday. Clean, well furnished and stocked (games, books, pantry). Peter was super responsive and friendly. Gorgeous view to wake up to in the morning, especially after arriving in the dark. A+ accommodations and hospitality need I say more?!
