About Property Manager/Owner

I am the great great granddaughter of Ebenezer Haggett who owned this property with his children and it is titled, "the Haggett Homestead". Ebenezer was famous as a shipbuilder who built the five masted schooner. Ebenezer had his ship building company in Newcastle which is now the Lincoln Home and built such beautiful ships as "the Elizabeth", "the Josephus", "the State of Maine". The craftsman in the home is mirrored after the ships with wainscoting and maple flooring.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Newcastle

The property is part of Maine history - with the wide pumpkin pine flooring, lovely architecture, quaint parlor and ballroom. Glidden Street was captured in DownEast Magazine as "Newcastle's Lovliest Lane". The countryside and beautiful federal homes provide the setting for Jane Austen's "Emma".

What makes this house unique

Close to town and shops, yet quiet and private; lovely sitting rooms for conversation, reading, quilting knitting; Porch setting which overlooks the Damariscotta River-- great for having coffee in the morning. Spacious rooms for friends and family

Charming Older Home in Beautiful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. Plenty of space and interesting to see the older structure and design inside. Beautiful view, just sitting on the porch and enjoying the charming little neighborhood.

I loved staying at the lovely shipbuilder home. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The street is beautiful and reminded us of a carrier and gives postcard.

Perfect FIt

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a perfect location. Easy walk to town, with Fernald's Country Store, Crissy's and of course Reny's. It's close drive to anything you could need. Very friendly neighborhood. It was a perfect fit for us.

Overall a good stay!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay - house was clean and comfortable - we did have a slight issue 're parking as it is on the road and on one of the days we returned to find several cars already parked there! (A minor irritation as one of our party has mobility issues) Great location with easy access to the village/town. Would recommend the property. Only downside is the need to make up beds upon arrival and the expectation that we launder all linens and towels prior to leaving. (It begs the question - what is the cleaning fee for?)

Owner's Response: There is plenty of parking on the property. We now include laundry cleaning in the fee. We don't require anyone to make their beds. The cleaning fee is for the initial and departure cleaning. We have eleven rooms which need to be cleaned. The fee is in line with other homes on the site but our fee does allow linens which is a great benefit to the vacationers.
