3 beds and 2 baths home with Modern Kitchen on 4 private waterfront acres
- English, Portuguese
We have lived in Europe and the USA but the beauty and serenity of Harpswell reminds us of our years living on the coast of Portugal . When we are not in Harpswell we might be found on Long Island , NY or visiting our sons in Manhattan or in Washington DC .
Stan purchased this House in 2017
Why Stan chose Harpswell
While having lived on or near the coasts of Western Europe and East Coast USA we have never owned a piece of our own waterfront property that was private and with the stunning views offered by this property . After many months of looking we fell in love with Harpswell . The house is only 6 miles from Brunswick and 45 minutes to Portland Me . It is difficult to believe that such beauty and privacy can exist within only a 10 minute drive to the very cosmopolitan town of Brunswick and home of Bowdoin College.
What makes this House unique
The sunrises and rising moon views over the water make this a unique place . We love the vaulted ceiling and the large stone fireplace . Master bedroom and master bath on main level of house is so very convenient and we will never buy another house in New England that doesn't have a wood burning stove. Being able to walk to the waters edge and watch the lobster boats and wild life while sipping morning coffee is something that is priceless. Very private (adjoining property to the south sits on 80 acres) yet within 6 mins drive to excellent shopping and within 45 mins to some of the finest restaurants in the USA in Portland Me. Surrounding our home are the great outdoors immediately offering kayaking , fishing, swimming, hiking and wild life watching to name a few .

We had a great time staying at The Tides. It is close to Brunswick and all of the Midcoast of Maine, but you could sit on the deck and read and feel that you are in the wilderness. The house had everything you could need. We had a great vacation
Great place, location, and owner/property manager. Highly recommend!
Tranquil Home on Harpswell Island
Our family had an amazing vacation at this beautiful home. So much to see and do and the hosts were wonderful. The home was immaculate and so comfortable that we didn’t mind the rain! Highly recommend!!!!
Wonderful Maine get-away at cozy waterfront cabin
The property was even better than advertised! Such a pleasant and welcome surprise. Very well appointed, clean and cozy. Stan and Arnold couldn't have been more accomodating. I look forward to coming back next year!
Stan and Arnold were very friendly and helpful. House was well equipped for all of our needs. Location was wonderful and we really enjoyed the water views.
Only reason I did not give 5 stars was for cleanliness. Several areas were dusty and it was very dirty underneath the couch (we vacationed with our 2 young children and toys/pacifiers kept going underneath). It did not look like the couch had been moved or swept under for some time.
Hi Tiffany -Thanks for your review . We take great pride in ensuring that our home is kept immaculate for our guests. We have taken note of the couch and thank you for bringing it to our attention.
My wife and I, and our two small dogs, spent 4 nights at this wonderful house. The weather was not cooperative, so we spent more time than we had planned indoors, but we didn't mind at all. We've stayed at many HomeAway's and this was one of the best by far.
