The space

Wonderful old farmhouse with barn available monthly, weekly, or daily, in a gorgeous green setting sheltered by a huge oak. We're in a lobster fishing village, with a five minute walk to back cove, or the harbor, and a 10 minute walk to the ocean. A lovely local sandy beach is only four minutes by car. Lounge on the front porch, or the back deck, where we have a planter filled with fresh herbs. There are three bedrooms, two upstairs and one down, as well as a sleeper sofa in the living room, and one bathroom with shower. Easy access to: swimming either at the public beach or local swimming hole, Pemaquid lighthouse, historic Colonial Pemaquid fort and museum, several harbors, local grocery store, and Shaw's lobster wharf, as well as other restaurants, such as The Harbor Room, and The Cupboard Cafe with its fabulous blueberry pancakes or homemade cinnamon rolls. We're also close to the Hardy Boat ferry to Monhegan. Damariscotta, with its variety of shops, restaurants (including a lovely Thai spot), a terrific book store and local library, and a wonderful old theatre is only a 15-20 minute drive. Parking on site. No phone, internet, or cable, as this is a place to relax. But if you need it, there's wi-fi available at local cafes as well as free wi-fi at the local library.

Only non-smokers, please.

We are in New Harbor, on the Pemaquid Peninsula, about a 1.5 hour drive north of Portland and approximately 45 minutes from Camden.

Lovely house in a quiet picturesque setting. Close to local amenities and tourist spots. Accommodation homely with well equipped kitchen. Lots of reading material! Spacious garden and off road parking. Owners very accommodating providing crib and high chair for baby; stairs a worry for toddler. No TV or Internet, ace for a quiet holiday. We loved the area and are planning our next trip.

Our second time at Jane & Lynn's farmhouse - lovely as always! Took the Hardy Boat Cruise out to Monhegan Island for the day and loved it! The house is a great base to explore the area from.

We had a great stay and the house is as described. Great location to back cove crabing bridge and ocean trail - follow trail location directions provided in house. Nice front porch and back deck and yard - very quiet. House and linens clean and furniture comfortable. Visit "Abundant" bakery/Chesebro gallery within walking distance down the street. Have fun.

We had an amazing time staying in this Maine Farmhouse. We found it to be the perfect spot to use as a home base to explore Mid-Coast Maine. The house has the charm and eccentricity of a home built in the 1870's and short walking distance access to the harbor and ocean. My kids will definitely hold onto the memory of this vacation their entire lives. This home provided us the perfect place to rest our bodies and refresh our souls.

This was our second summer in the house, and once again, it was a wonderfully located haven for a week on the Maine coast! Exceptional points include the kitchen and back deck and yard, plus the plethora of books in the house!

I stayed here with a group of friends for a holiday weekend - it was a great house for a relaxing weekend near the beach, fresh seafood, and Pemaquid. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Maine vacation!

Like everything else in the New Harbor area, Jane's home was quaint and lovely. Jane made everything go so smoothly. Very friendly and helpful. Guidebooks and suggestions were great. If you're looking for a luxury home, this isn't it. It is a rustic, beautiful old farm home with some eccentricities and a lot of charm. No cell service or wifi. We loved sipping coffee on the back patio that overlooks a beautiful backyard. Great location in New Harbor.

My husband and I love books, music, and the arts in general. We also love to hike, cook, and travel and we've recently begun to explore sailing and kayaking. We welcome guests during the summer when we are there or to rent the entire house monthly, weekly, or daily when we're not. Our style is creative, and informal; we love to get to know others and share this lovely little corner of Maine with you. We've also been guests in many places as well. We look forward to hearing from you.
