Description

THIS PROPERTY RENTS SATURDAY-SATURDAY, JUNE-SEPTEMBER. OFF-SEASON MAY BE FLEXIBLE.

It's all about the Maine Coast at this contemporary, comfortable boathouse.  The "cottage" was designed by an avid sailor to evoke living on a boat.  It is tucked into the side of the hill, sitting below your parking and above the waterfront which is accessed by a lovely gravel pathway down to your oversized, well-built dock and float.  

This cottage is all about waterfront relaxing, boating and enjoying the unspoiled and unhurried life on the water.  Walk onto the open deck as you approach the cottage. Just off the deck is a cleverly designed room which combines a laundry and a cocktail bar complete with fridge. The sign above the door says: "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere!" Walk into the open concept, Living/Dining/Kitchen with high ceilings, hardwood floors and lots of windows to the water to enjoy the spectacular westerly sunset views.  This living room has a queen couch/sofa bed and a gas fireplace for ambience or heat.  Just behind this great room is the bedroom with built in twin beds, a roomy bathroom with a shower and a hall closet stocked with games.  A ladder in the bedroom takes you up to the loft area with a king mattress and window overlooking the main living area (a perfect "hideout" for children over 10).  The lower level of the house sports the outdoor shower and mechanical room. This cottage is very environmentally friendly and thus has a very sophisticated water and sewer system.  There is a gas grill for cooking too. 

Picture yourself sitting on the deck, enjoying those cool ocean breezes, as you enjoy your Maine lobster and the beautiful sun as it sets over the water.  Life doesn't get any better on the coast of Maine than this.  Bring or rent kayaks and explore the area by water.  Bring binoculars to watch for eagles, osprey, seals and much more.  Sailboats and lobster boats are always going by.    

Venture into Bath or Brunswick to enjoy a variety of restaurants, great shopping, theatre or the Maine Maritime Museum. This world class museum looks at the shipbuilding industry from the 1800's to present.  Bowdoin College in Brunswick is home to the Maine State Music Theater with great shows throughout the season.  In Bath you can enjoy concerts and theater productions at the Chocolate Church.
