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 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 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.

Perfect Home for a Port Clyde vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in Port Clyde and if you are looking for a rental in this location, this home is perfect. The owners provide everything you need and the house is in a quiet location, 5 minutes to the beach, has a screened in porch, comfortable beds, a beautiful yard and is clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful and lovely

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to visit Port Clyde and it was so lovely and peaceful that I really didn't want to leave. The house looks compact on the outside, but inside it is open and spacious. The relatively new house is quite capable of comfortably sleeping several people. Two full baths, three bedrooms, private deck, and an open kitchen-dining-living room area is quite pleasant for relaxing with family/friends. It is just a short walk to the cove beach with an expansive view of the ocean --- perfect for all recreational activities or just sitting on the beach. The small town of Port Clyde is also a reasonable walk or bike ride. Port Clyde and the lighthouse symbolize the quaintness and best of coastal Maine. Exploring the beautiful country roads and other small coastal towns was delightful. Excellent place to stay!!

Beautiful place to relax

  • 5 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 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!
