Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps
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.
Perfect for family vacation!
About the Owner
Absolutely beautiful location
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!
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!
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.
Activity and Interests
Working lobster docks to explore and pictoresque harbors; nearby lobster shacks (on water) for Maine seafood meals; general store a 5 minute walk; artists studios & galleries.
