Overview

About the property

Hear the ocean from your bed.

The Surf really crashes on the ledges at Camp 34 in a good storm. Deep Ocean Front: facing Fisherman's Passage with 180 degree Panoramic southerly vistas of islands stretching from Monhegan in the east to Squirrel and Southport in the west. Lighthouses, wildlife & yachts are all visible from the house or from the shore. Windjammers, cruise boats, sail boats, lobster boats, the occasional naval warship glide by. The house gets both sunrises and sunsets. There is also mute 18th Century naval cannon on the porch. You're both on the shore and in the forest. Camp 34 is a home and not a hotel or bed and breakfast.

Built in 1900, Camp 34 is a true turn-of-the-century summer cottage. When you're in bed will hear the rain on the roof and the surf on the shore. All the bed rooms have ocean views. The walls are open to the outside sheathing. The airy large living room/dinning room sports marvelously varnished walls & ceiling. The kitchen and lower bedroom are also varnished. The bed rooms upstairs are all bright white. Naturally the living room has a cozy brick fireplace & for the really chilly days there is baseboard heat. Also on the first floor is a bath with shower. Upstairs are three large bedrooms and a very small one, big enough for a bed only, and a bath with large claw foot tub. The Bedrooms all have views of the ocean. All told there are two full beds, one upstairs & one down, and four twin beds so that a total of 8 people may be accommodated. The kitchen is very spacious with a range, refrigerator, a microwave, coffee maker, blender, plenty of pots & pans & china. It was remodeled in 1974 & includes a small office nook. There is no dish washer or garbage disposal. The large oak dinning table has leaves with seating for eight or nine. New in 2017 are a clothes washer and dryer in the kitchen. The old high tech clothes line, utilizing sun and wind power, remains in service off the back porch for drying swimming suits etc. The front porch is very spacious & is great for rocking away the lunch hour on hot, sunny days or cocktails in the evening. Across the town road is a large private shore lot with trees, a grassy terrace, a sand terrace & lots of ledges, great for picnics or sunbathing. Swimming is not recommended from the rocks. Parking for three cars is available. Odds & ends: a charcoal grill. Furnishings through out are generally antique. TV with Cable & Internet connection with dual cable and Wi-fi modem.

There is both privacy and community depending upon your preference. Neighbors are all very friendly. Within easy walking distance for both adults and children is the Ocean Point Casino where various community activities are offered over the span of the summer. Three tennis courts and a ball field for games after church on Sundays. The Wilson Memorial Chapel is about 6 door down to the east. It boasts rotating ministers every Sunday.

There is an interesting drone video of my neighborhood showing Ram Island Light, Grimes Cove and my section of Shore Road. I can make out my flagpole and rocks but not my house... http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/maine/coastal-drone-footage-me/

What makes this house unique

Choose Camp 34 for a truly authentic Maine summer cottage experience: this house has been in the same family since it was built. Change happens slowly here. The cottage has its idiosyncrasies. Clearly, It has not been furnished overnight from a Pottery Barn catalog...!
