Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3BR / 2BA with Deep Water Dock

Boathouse converted into a private and modern retreat on the Bagaduce, with a shared deep water dock.

The ground floor features two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with two twin beds), a cozy family room, full bath, and laundry room. All beds are outfitted with high thread count sheets, down comforters and cotton quilts.

Upstairs, enter a spacious great room with a wall of windows overlooking the water and a (faux) wood stove. The compact kitchen is fully outfitted with a full size oven, refrigerator, gas stove and microwave. It opens into the living room area with a futon, two midcentury modern chairs and a leather chaise. Windows and fans operated via remote control allow for cooling breezes.

Wake to amazing sunrise views of the water from the full-height loft which features a queen bed and is accessed via a set of ships stairs.

The patio overlooks the Bagaduce River towards Castine. Meander down the hill through lupines to get to the deep water dock.

Things to do:

- Rent canoes or kayaks and paddle from the dock to see the seals.

- Take a 5 minute boat ride to dine at the James Beard award winner Bagaduce Lunch

- Cycle thru beautiful country roads

- Pick raspberries (July) and blackberries (August) on the property

- Take sailing lessons at one of the local yacht clubs which are open to non-members

About Tom & Z

We live in northern California, but Tom grew up in Orono, Maine. His accent returns whenever we are Down East.

Tom & Z purchased this house in 2006

Why Tom & Z chose Downeast and Acadia

We love being able to come here and escape from our every day lives. We turn the screens off and entertain ourselves building fairy houses (see if you can find them), playing board games and searching the tide pools for sea stars.

Happy family in a quiet location with a beautiful scandi touch

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great place for a family to stay. The interior has a Scandinavian style with

light woods and some mid-century-style furniture. Everything was working as it should.

The kids made the mezzanine their kingdom where not adults were allowed.

The host was very responsive, always replying immediately to our questions.

The location is quiet and away.

The only thing we never got fully to work has nothing to do with the house: We only

got information across, once we bypassed the VRBO website and apps and switched

to ordinary email.

Beautiful and well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

Situated with a view of the river in a quiet, peaceful setting. Comfortable accommodations for the four of us and stocked with everything one needs. Owners quick to respond and very helpful. Somewhat remote though small villages are nearby and a fabulous bakery is 5 minutes down the road, as Is the Bagaduce Lunch with fantastic lobster rolls.Takes about 45-50 minutes to get to Acadia National Park. We enjoyed the serenity and the uncrowded winding roads and looked forward to "Happy Hour" every evening in our home-away-from home.

Unforgettable stay in a beautiful waterfront house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our family vacation in Maine in this home. The house is bright, cosy, charming and well equipped. The pontoon is fantastic, offering a wonderful view on the ocean and a direct access to the shore. Girls enjoyed crab fishing at low tide. The location is great, not too far from the Acadia National Park. We find everything needed in the kitchen to cook delicious lobsters. The small harbors all around the place are charming. Thank you Tom and Zelina for welcoming us, we really felt at home in your house and greatly appreciated the equipment, towels, dish washer, washing machine and dryer made available to us. We can only recommend to those reading these lines to quickly book the house. I would love coming back myself. The Nicolas Family from France!

Relaxing getaway in a lovely home with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family getaway at this home! Tom and Zerlina were incredibly helpful leading up to our trip and had a binder filled with suggestions for activities around the area. The home is absolutely beautiful, with great quality amenities (sheets, towels, shampoo, etc) that gave it a luxurious charm.

The river is right beside the house, and we spent hours on the dock fishing and doing yoga-- the view was breathtaking.

Note that the house is a bit far from away from everything, which makes it great for a getaway, but less idle if you are planning to explore the main(E) attractions.
