The SpaceThis beautiful old historic home, is light filled, cozy and feels like a home away from home. It has many of the original features that speaks to the authenticity of an old Maine house. Adjoining front parlor rooms with a working fireplace for a rainy night only adds to the charming ambiance of this home. There is something about the energy of this house that brings a sense of comfort to those who enter it, which always bring me a sense of joy and an interest in sharing it. There is one bedroom on the second floor that is quite spacious with a king size bed. This room is the only bedroom that has air conditioning offered and is directly off the full bath. The bedrooms on the first floor have one queen size bed and a set of twins. These rooms have fans provided. All rooms have quality bedding that includes soft sheets, a comforter, quilts with closets and bureaus to accommodate your things. There is a television with DVD player for guests to use in the main living room that is for videos only, no television or cable. The beauty of staying here is that in addition to the accommodations, you will be on the property of Maine artist. I have been a professional artist for 14 years, so the art the adorns my home is the work of many local Maine artists that I can connect you directly with, either to meet or to purchase art from, if you so desire. I have knowledge of galleries, and artists from Portland to Rockland that can further enhance your visit here. As a guest you will have complete access to the entire property, with the exception of the barn, which is my office and art studio. If I am on the property and the door to the building is open, then it is a free invitation for you pop your head in and see what I am up to. That is the fun part about renting from a working artist who is partially onsite. Guest AccessYou will receive a set of keys at check in so you may enter and leave premises at your convenience. If you are not going to make it before check in time, where you will be given the keys and shown around, we will arrange another plan. There will be a lock box for you to place the keys into at the time of departure. Interaction with GuestsThe barn on this property is my office and art studio so visitors as well as myself will be on and off the property during your stay (mostly in the daytime). I respect each individuals privacy, so you may have me engage as much or as little as you would like. I do however, encourage you to utilize my knowledge of the Midcoast to your advantage for places to go, people to meet and experience to be had. The NeighborhoodYou are located just a few minutes walk into the village of Damariscotta where you will find restaurants, art galleries, and shopping. The house resides on one the oldest streets which is filled with historic houses that give you an authentic Maine village experience. Local health food store, fresh seafood market and grocery stores are all within walking distance. Renting a kayak and paddle board at the head of the river in town, or taking a riverboat tour is a great way to explore the village by water. Getting AroundThe Concord Trailway bus stop, which connects you to Portland, Boston, and New York is just 1/4 mile from house on Main St. We have limited taxi services here, so a car is highly recommended. Other Things to NoteThis rental is in the most central location for the Midcoast. Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and State Park Beach is just 10 minutes from town ( where you can also catch a ferry to Monhegan Island. Boothbay Harbor, which has a plethra of fine dining establishments, art galleries and is home to one of the largest botanical gardens in New England is just 20 minutes down the road. Camden, Rockport and Rockland are 35 minutes north as is Brunswick, which is the same distance heading south.

The SpaceWe are less than a mile from downtown Damariscotta, with its charming harbor, shops, awesome theater, and even more awesome bookstore. Lots of wonderful restaurants around, and we have written a Guest Book that highlights some of our favorite spots. We offer our guests the use of a beach umbrella and two beach chairs, a bathroom with hairblower and washer/dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a portable full-length mirror, especially for those prepping for a special occasion! We've created this space with writers and artists in mind, and know you'll find the Barn Loft is a quiet comfortable space to do great work or to simply relax and enjoy our beautiful part of Maine. Guest AccessWe have outdoor seating on the lawn (wrought iron chairs and coffee table), and a picnic table and umbrella, that guests are welcome to use. (We have an open deck that is currently undergoing a much-needed cosmetic facelift! We hope to have it back in use by October 1.) Amy has a large flower garden and vegetable garden, and welcomes visitors -- please stay on the paths, and if you want some veggies or some flowers, just ask! There are pots of culinary herbs right outside the apartment door, especially for our guests. The side yard, the screened porch, and our home, are our private space and we appreciate your respecting those boundaries. Interaction with GuestsYes, we will be around to answer questions and offer tips if you like! We're eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Best to reach out to Amy first, as Will is working most of the time in his studio and gallery. The NeighborhoodWill is part of the Bristol Road Galleries, a collaboration of 4 artists all within walking distance of each other. We have info about all of them, and will happily give you directions and/or introductions to any of them. Will offers art lessons in oils or acrylics, if you are interested to study with him during your stay. The garden is a lovely spot to set-up your plein-air easel! Getting AroundWe have a large gravel driveway for parking. No public transportation on our road itself. We do have a local taxi service, and a bus that goes up and down the East Coast can be taken from in-town. Other Things to NotePlease note: We have added the required 9% Maine Lodging Tax to the Booking Fee. We will NOT pester you to collect local tax when you arrive. Also: We have two dogs on the property -- both very friendly, and we never allow them up in the Barn Loft. They are occasionally out in the yard, but we will make every effort to keep them separate from you, if you have any concerns. MacKenzie is a senior female yellow lab and very sweet. Gordon is a young brown mutt, very enthusiastic and cheery.

The SpaceThis no fuss condo has a fully equipped kitchen (sorry, no dishwasher), a dining area that seats four and a living area that opens up to a small patio with grill and a huge lawn in back. The master bedroom is in front and its windows look out onto the parking area of the building and the pool beyond. It has a queen bed, a large dresser with mirror and a big closet. The smaller bedroom has a single bed and an equally big closet and just enough space for a little reading nook. There’s a TV with basic cable (which includes PBS) and an, albeit slow, internet connection. Since the building used to be a motel it has sprinkler systems throughout. Should you need it, there is laundromat right down the street. Guest AccessAfter you pick up your key at our Bed & Breakfast in Waldoboro - which is 10 minutes up the road – you’re on your own. The whole place is yours, including the patio in back. You’ll share access to the pool with the other people in the building and you can use the large lawn in back that stretches all the way down to the river, though it’s a little easier to get to the water from the Whaleback Shell Midden, a 2,500-year-old oyster shell midden located next door. Interaction with GuestsI live nearby and am always accessible by phone, however since we’re in a Bermuda triangle for cell phones for some reason, we only have a landline. Messages will be returned promptly, usually within a couple of hours, but I cannot promise instant access and I do not text. Relax, you’re in the country now ;) The NeighborhoodDamariscotta is a charming, small town on the Damariscotta River with a serene harbor and a bustling town center five minutes away from the condo. It has a beautifully restored theater featuring live performances as well as (mostly independent) movies, a fantastic bookstore with an adjunct cafe, plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs, a real fish monger and a butcher, plus the original Reny's, an old-fashioned five & dime store with soda fountain. On your short way to town there’s the Rising Tide (one of the finest organic food coops I’ve ever experienced), two supermarkets, a YMCA, a bunch of food trucks and a twice weekly farmer's market. Damariscotta is widely known for its oysters and there are several restaurants that do especially good things with them, like the Damariscotta River Grill and King Eider’s Pub. But we can also whole-heartedly recommend Van Lloyd's Bistro, the Salt Bay Café with its myriad of vegetarian and vegan options, the Best Thai, S. Fernald's Country Store and Crissy's Breakfast & Coffee Bar. And if you’re in the mood for tunes and drinks by the water, there’s always Schooner Landing. There is so much to do and see on the Midcoast you could spend the whole summer and not run out of options. You can rent kayaks, canoes or paddleboards right downtown or go on an old-fashioned river cruise, replete with herons, harbor seals and oyster farms. You can drive up the Pemaquid peninsula and visit the romantic lighthouse at its rocky tip, immerse yourself in history at Fort William Henry (which dates back to the 17th century), take a day trip to Monhegan Island, explore the Rachel Carson tide pool, hike the cliffs at La Verna preserve, go for a swim at the sweet little Pemaquid beach (yes, it’s sandy and no, it’s not that cold), and have the best fish sandwich ever at “the gut” in South Bristol. Damariscotta is also less than 15 minutes away from Wiscasset with its antique stores and world-famous lobster rolls, 30 minutes from beautiful Boothbay Harbor and the tranquil Boothbay Botanical Garden, 40 minutes from Rockland with its museums, art galleries and fabulous restaurant scene and 45 minutes from Camden and its sail boat studded harbor – which must also be viewed from the top of Mount Battie in nearby Camden Hills State Park. Plus, there’s Portland and its premier culinary scene, Acadia National Park, Popham Beach and Reid State Park, a bunch of museums, dozens of lighthouses and hundreds of spectacular hikes. And if you think you’ve run out of options just give me a call. I’ve been hosting B&B guests for a decade and can always come up with more.

The SpaceThis is a charming, vintage house that I am restoring. A "diamond in the rough" is how one guest described it. It has 2 bedrooms and a full bath upstairs, and a half bath (sink, toilet) downstairs. There is a queen-sized air mattress. I didn't list the sofa for sleeping but it does unfold into a double bed (however when opened it is slanted, my 20 year old nephew slept on it, but I don't think it would be comfortable for 2 adults, I've slept on the sofa which has down cushions, but then I'm also very short 5'2" so I didn't list it as a sleeping option, but it could be used in a pinch). The house has new wiring, a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, etc). Bay window seat, ceiling fans. There is a gas grill available. Wireless internet, TV has a roku box through which netflix, local, national, & international news, weather, and various other channels are available. When not rented, I will be working on various projects around the house. Guest AccessThe entire house & 2-car garage are for guests. Interaction with GuestsI will be living nearby most of the summer. If I am not around, I will provide details on contacting a local person to trouble-shoot. There is a 3-ring binder in the kitchen with recommended places to dine and things-to-do, both locally and in the mid-coast region. I am also happy to make suggestions if you ask. The NeighborhoodDamariscotta is a captivating, small town on the Damariscotta River which is known for producing world-famous oysters. It is a terrific launching point for exploring nearby Boothbay Harbor, Pemaquid peninsula, and Camden. The town itself has a movie theater, cafe/bookstore, plenty of eclectic shops, restaurants, pubs, a fresh seafood shop, a high quality butcher shop, and the original Reny's (a kind of five & dime store that sells anything and everything). Close by there's a twice weekly farmer's market (Monday & Friday), a health-food grocery store (Rising Tide), plus the local favorite, Larson's Lunchbox for their lobster and crab rolls. Getting AroundThe house is a stone's throw away from Damariscotta's main street. Roll out of bed and walk over to the Bookstore/Cafe for a morning coffee & crepe or bagle breakfast. Or walk a few more blocks to Fernald's Country Store & Deli for lunch (fabulous sandwiches for picnicking). Try King Eider's for the world renowned Damariscotta River oysters & a craft beer on tap, or go high-end and dine at Van Lloyd's Bistro. From either place it is only a stroll home. Other Things to NoteGarage is large enough to accommodate any bikes, canoes, or kayaks that you might bring.

    Two large bedrooms along with two large decks overlooking the Great Salt Bay are the key features of this condo. The kitchen/living space is small; however, you can spread out on the two decks, the 5 acres of land, or lounge by the in-ground pool. The largest bedroom is reached by its own spiral staircase and features its own deck perfect for star gazing at night or waking up to views of the bay in the morning. It is a clean, cozy, and comfortable condo perfect for a family of four or four adults. It is accessed through a common area door with a set of stairs. It is a phenomenal location central to many great mid-coast experiences in Maine. You are 40 minutes from Freeport (think LL Bean Outlet and Cold River Vodka Distillery), an hour north of Portland (fantastic for foodies), and 45 minutes south of Camden Maine (more great hiking).
