About the property

Lovely, cedar log cabin, meticulously built in the 1960s. Expanded in 2008 by award-winning Philadelphia architect . Beautiful glass and red fir common room connects the old and new. Modern amenities including full kitchen. Cabin sits right across the street from the harbor (and a lobster dock), with a water view. A wooded, 1 acre lot in the backyard, with extra parking.

Tenants Harbor is a lovely small village on the coast of Maine. A working lobster village and a haven for artists, who have come for decades to paint the beautiful scenery. General store in town w/ all amenities; Only 15 minutes away from the beautiful small town of Rockland .

Cabin is particularly well set-up for a two-family vacation. There are 2 bedrooms and a full bath in both the original cabin and the new addition (4 seperate bedrooms). Both sides will accomodate 4 each in the bedrooms. There are two double futons in the loft/study in the newer wing that can accomodate at least 2 more. The loft is private and has lovely woods and water views.

Beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the Lobster Harbor View Home in Tenants Harbor Maine. This was our first experience in Maine and we enjoyed it immensely. Drift inn Beach was beautiful at low tide and is only 5 minutes away. McLoons Lobster Shack had amazing Lobster Rolls and Crab Cake Sandwiches. Is BYOB so bring your favorite beverage to accompany your dinner. Prices very reasonable. We also enjoyed Dormans homemade ice cream - the homemade hot fudge was to die for! Purchased lobster in Port Clyde at the Off the Dock Lobster shack. Had couple days of dense fog so spent those days visiting the local lighthouses. Took a Puffin excursion and spent a couple hours enjoying the Atlantic Ocean while watching puffins and seals. Thanks to the Niemtzow for allowing us to spend the week. Just a couple suggestions - the living room furniture is not very comfortable. We had read some prior reviews indicating the same and had brought a couple inflatable chairs. A pub table on the front deck would have been ideal for enjoying our morning coffee. Is difficult to enjoy the water view in the Adirondack chairs.

Owner's Response: Hi Sandra, Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in our home and in the Tenants Harbor area. We love sharing it with others & would be happy to have you again! As for your suggestions, we’re sorry to hear the living room furniture wasn’t as comfortable as you were expecting. It was specifically designed & made by a furniture-maker in the 1950s to fit an authentic Maine log cabin aesthetic; more so for style than comfort. We’re always looking to improve things, so following your suggestion, we will be looking in to adding a sofa for next season with one that is more plush & suitable for plopping down. Thanks again!

wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Lobster Harbor View was a perfect house for our family. It was clean and airy with plenty of space for all. The kitchen was great and we really used it! We attended a wedding at the East Wind Inn in Tenants Harbor which was within walking distance. The walk was beautiful overlooking the harbor and a nearby General Store very convenient.

The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. Great place, great time!

Absolutely beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This location is fairly remote which is what we liked about it. The views are gorgeous. You can walk down to the dock/beach (rocky) area very easily which we did almost every night. Make sure you check the tide charts.

The house itself is very large. The kitchen is well laid out which we used every day. If you plan to bake anything bring baking sheets and pans. The dining room table is very large and great to share a meal, play games/puzzles or plan your day. The loft area is much larger than I thought it would be, although mostly private there is no door. The bedroom with the two twin beds has an open pass through to the living room (used to be a window). There is a curtain but the room is not fully private. You are out in the woods, there were spiders, crickets, and moths. A couple of nights were warm which brought out the mosquitoes, I recommend bringing bug spray. The TV in the living room was very large with Directv, we found the living room furniture to be mostly uncomfortable.

The owner was great to respond to any inquiry we had before and after our visit. I would recommend renting this house if you want to enjoy the Maine coast.

Perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a family vacation. Our group of 6 adults, 1 teenager, and 3 toddlers was very comfortable in this home. We enjoyed the kitchen - gourmet yet casual! We enjoyed the area as well. Rockland and Camden were fun to walk around. We toured all the lighthouses in the area and loved our time at Crescent Beach on Owls Head. The owners were great to work with and have thought of every detail. We would totally come back!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in this very "Maine" home. It is on a quiet street, across the street from the harbor. Not a touristy spot, but rather a real working harbor, with watermen bringing in lobster.

Walking distance to general store and restaurants. Other spots are a short drive. Port Clyde is a quaint harbor with a lighthouse, and home to the boat that takes you to Mohegan island.

The home is rustic-appearing, but actually quite luxurious, with a cook's kitchen, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, and a full washer-dryer. Everything you could want, including a front porch to watch the water and relax.
