About Doug and Amy Stark

Hi there. We started vacationing in Port Clyde in 1994 when our first daughter was born. We have returned every year since then and have built SO many wonderful memories in Port Clyde. In 2008 an opportunity came up for us to purchase a mobile home on a lovely piece of property that was a VERY short walk from the beach. It was private yet allowed us easy access to the water as well as a comfortable walk to town and the lighthouse. We enjoyed that home for a number of years and had many people rent and share in our joy. In 2012 we decided to build a new home on the property and that is what you will be renting. It is a wonderful new home that we enjoy sharing with others so that you too can enjoy and come to love a place on earth that has been such a blessing to our family.

Thanks for considering our home.

Why Doug and Amy Stark chose Port Clyde

The thing we LOVE about this home is that you can get to the beach so easily, but you can also leave it behind and go back to a very private, secluded, wooded setting. You have the best of both worlds. The location is such that you can easily walk to the beach or head the other direction for coffee/lunch/dinner at 'The Port'. Or continue on to the Marshall Point Lighthouse (we enjoy many picnic meals there as well!).

What makes this house unique

We don't know what else to tell you other than many people have told us that staying at our home has been their best vacation ever!

Guestbook comments from the owner

After visiting Port Clyde for the fifth time, we can't seem to stay away from here. The accommodations are complete and we love the high and low tides each day! Thanks for letting us stay here!

Beautiful place to relax

  • 5 out of 5
We left for Maine the day after my work year at a school ended. What a great place to unwind and begin the summer! The house is new and clean, with attention to so many welcoming details. Breakfast on the back porch, enjoying the quiet, was a regular treat. Biking to the lighthouse, local lobster rolls, an evening of marshmallow roasting over the fire pit, shopping in Rockland, and beach time are all part of the memories we treasure. It was so nice to be in a place where there is no need to hurry. The rooms are huge and comfortable, the kitchen and living area make a great place for family gathering, the bathrooms are immaculate.

The Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had an amazing stay in Port Clyde. It was a peaceful getaway full of outdoor exploring, beach time, sight seeing, and delicious local fare. The cottage is so welcoming and homey and offers many little comforts that many rentals do not. There was plenty of space for our family of five and the quick walk to Drift Inn Beach or to the village was more than manageable for our little ones. Plenty to do and see but tucked away from the busy, central tourist areas, too. We loved everything about it! Thank you!

Clean and cozy rental exceeded expectations!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this house for our honeymoon! It was clean, comfortable, and enjoyable. We quickly felt right at home and enjoyed the ample space to cook and relax when we weren't out and about. The back porch was a favorite spot to read and drink coffee when we weren't doing the same at the beach. :)

The beach is a (very) short walk from the house as is the town that has some yummy seafood and a general store. For fine dining and more tourist shops, Rockland is a short drive.

Definitely recommended!

Cozy cottage with everything we needed

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this property for the week of August 14th-20th, 2011.
The weather didn't really co-operate with us,it drizzled for the first two days, but we went out beachcombing and as a bonus it meant we had the beach to ourselves. On sunny days there were quite a few more seaglass seekers. We also got to explore the nearby town of Rockland as a result of the rain, it was very touristy, but had a grocery, mcd's, Dunkin donuts, etc.
We felt there was plenty of room in the cottage. We travelled with two teens, a two year old and a 4 year old,( putting up extra air mattresses in the master for the little ones).Someone could have slept on the pull out couch as well. Two bathrooms were nice to have, the laundry room handy, there was a good sized bbq though we didn't use it.
The closest town is really a village, and not really any restaurants, though there are some things served at the general store, and there was an ice cream shop and other cafe barn we didn't go in.
Bring some food with you as the nearest larger grocery store is 20 minutes away, and you won't want to have to leave right after arrival.
Kitchen is stocked with all the gadgets and stuff you'd need- and plenty of pantry space-
Nice big private yard, a pretty short walk to the water entry(almost 5 minutes at 2 year old pace). The high tide/low tide differences at the beach are awesome, the kids enjoyed being in the "deeper" water at one point in the day, then later walking way past that and still being on the shore. Be aware though, the second that tide rolls out, the people in the area flock to the beach, get there fast to get a good spot!

We brought some extra things we didn't really need, because the owners had really though to provide everything. Great time for our family.
The only downside would be of note to other asthmatics- a closed up cottage by the sea can be a bit musty when you first open it up (particularly with it raining non stop)., but we opened the windows and it cleared up in no time. it just meant a bit of extra inhaler useage for our youngest after we first arrived.
We would definitely return to this rental-and have recommended it to our friends with kids- good location, great price, plenty of room and beautiful scenery!
Things to do- check out the lighthouses, the closet one was in the Forest Gump movie. The Monehegan puffin cruise was ok, not many puffins, but we saw dolphins and seals so the kids were happy-
Try some fresh lobster from the dock-delicious!
