Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Located in a historic 200 year old building "Ship Shape" is close to downtown but on a quiet residential street. Just one block to the library, bookstore, post office and all the lovely shops. It is on the shore of the Damariscotta River with wonderful views from inside and out.. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, the light, the outdoors space, and the new comfy bed. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.

The space
"Ship Shape" is located in what was formerly the office of the church. It was totally renovated and a kitchen and bathroom with a shower was added. The only wall that is shared with the restaurant- Savory Maine -is the back of the shower. Because the apartment faces south- away from downtown- it is very quiet even though it is just a block from Main Street.
The apartment is cozy and is furnished with antiques.
Cozy is another word for small. If you need a lot of space to spread out this is not the place for you.
Boaters are welcome if they want to spend some time on land. We are a very short walk to the town landing. The bus stop is one block away. A car is not needed to visit this wonderful town.
Beach chairs and towels and provided.
Off street parking is provided.

Where you’ll be

Damariscotta, Maine, United States

Damariscotta is a very special coastal Maine town. It has a very vibrant year round community. Most of the stores and restaurants are open year round. It is a naturally beautiful area with many opportunities for outdoor recreation. Within a 2 0 minute drive you can get to Pemaquid Beach, Pemaquid lighthouse, Fort William Henry, Dodge Point, Damariscotta Lake Beach and many other beautiful areas that are open to the public.
There are many artists in the area along with many galleries. There are musical groups and both amateur and professional theater companies.
There are 2 weekly farmers' markets and many good restaurants- my favorite- Savory Maine.
