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.

Doug and Amy Stark purchased this house in 2008

Why Doug and Amy Stark chose MidCoast - Penobscot Bay

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

One of the most relaxing vacations we have enjoyed. Beautiful autumn weather, plenty of things to do and lots of peace and quiet.

Great family cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our daughter, her husband and our grandchildren. The house had everything we needed. The fire pit provided the first marshmallow roasting memory for our grand kids. We all enjoyed it very much! This home was so clean and comfortable, also a very short walk to beach. We would love to return again next year. So beautiful!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice note. We are so happy you had a great time. We love to get notes like this as it makes sharing our home with others worthwhile knowing others are making some great memories as well! We would enjoy having you back again. Port Clyde and that beach are very special places.

Wonderful stay in Port Clyde

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Port Clyde immensely. The house was very clean and the layout, an open kitchen/living room, provided plenty of comfortable living space for our family of four adults. We also enjoyed the screened-in porch for reading and the beach is within walking distance. We would definitely return to this lovely home in the future.

Low tide & seaglass....what a way to start the day!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We walked to the Drift Inn Beach each morning and late afternoon for low tide. Marshall's Point is just a mile away, a special treat at sunset. It was our home away from home for a week...can't wait til next year!

Great place to stay in Port Clyde

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, clean and convenient place in Port Clyde. It's a very short walk to Drift Inn beach, and a short walk down to the harbor in Port Clyde. The house looks to be very freshly built or renovated and has all the things anyone would need. We (parents plus teenage daughter) very much enjoyed staying here and would love to come back in the future.

A beautiful week well spent in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression as we pulled into the driveway was the feeling that we had made the right choice. The well maintained appearance from the outside was reflected in the cleanliness and upkeep inside. We were surprised to find that everything we needed was provided. There was no need to rush to the corner store for a corkscrew. In addition there is a Walmart superstore about 20 minutes away. No need to bring anything with you. We found the best place to purchase live, fresh lobster was from the fishermen on the dock in Port Clyde. Notes on how to get there are in the Visitors book. We had a family reunion there for our daughters 25th wedding anniversary. There was plenty to do for grandchildren of all ages. We spent a day in Camden, well worth a visit - beautiful boutiques. We would highly recommend this property to anyone.
