Please no smoking inside apartment or within 25 feet of the house.
No pets are allowed.
No parties or events are allowed without consultation with us first. We have good neighbors and we want to keep them happy.
The immediate area around the apartment is not safe for unattended young children as the front lawn and lower parking area slopes steeply down the rocks into the ocean.
The apartment is the entire ground floor living space in the house we live in. Since we live above the apartment you will hear us walking around at times and maybe some muffled voices, likewise we might hear you if you are standing on the front lawn and our windows are open. Parking area, access to apartment and porch area is separate from our living area, but our paths could cross at times when we are outside on our side of the house. We are friendly and happy to share local knowledge but will also respect your desire for privacy during your stay. We are available by phone or text 24/7 or in person depending on our schedule.
Our house is located in a private setting near other year round & seasonal waterfront homes. Our driveway connects to a ¼ mile long road that loops on and off the main road which is a pleasant walk. The Great Island Marina is located a ¼ mile away and our view includes many of their customer’s boats / yachts that are moored out front.
We are conveniently located 15 minutes from downtown Brunswick (home to many restaurants, brew pubs, golf courses, the Maine State Music Theater and Bowdoin College) in one direction and 15 minutes away from Orr’s Island & Bailey Island (small beaches, walking trails, kayak rental and waterfront restaurants) in the other.
If you have never been to Harpswell you have a lot of wonderful new places to explore and things to do. We will gladly offer suggestions on what you might consider doing during your stay- we will give you the "inside scoop". You can also go nowhere and enjoy watching the boating activity in the bay, relax comfortably on the covered porch or cook up some fresh local lobsters outside in our lobster steamer.

My wife and are locals and continue to appreciate the beauty of Harpswell and surrounding areas. My parents built this house in 1989 and I lived in the ground floor apartment for a few years until I met my wife. Shortly after we married we moved upstairs and expanded the living area to accommodate our family. We are excited to share with others the opportunity to experience life on the coast of Maine, Harpswell style! We hope your visit is as rich and rewarding as it has been for us for the past 25 years.
