Homeport is aptly named — this stunning house is truly a home away from home. Situated on the shores of the Weskeag, a beautiful salt waterway, Homeport is nestled in woods offering peace and quiet and privacy.
The house is situated on over 2 acres with 350 feet of water front — watch wildlife from the screen porch (a surprising rarity in Maine), launch kayaks in the front yard or walk to town for lunch.
Homeport is ideally located — minutes to Owls Head and Rockland and just several miles away from the must-see villages of Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde.
Rockport and Camden are 20 minutes by car. You are within 5 minutes of the area`s most coveted beaches — Crockett`s Beach, Crescent Beach, Lucia Beach and Waterman`s Beach.
Bike ride, walk, explore and then come home and settle in for the night by the floor-to-ceiling granite fireplace in the living room.
The first floor of Homeport is open-concept with high ceilings and an eye toward beautiful functionality. The main entrance opens onto a classic Maine mudroom — this is perfect for leaving sandy shoes and towels after a day on the beach.
The gourmet kitchen is truly stunning with high end appliances and granite countertops. The large center island is the place to gather in the morning for breakfast or in the evening while meals are being prepared.
Off the kitchen is a den with a double pull-out couch with foam topper to ensure comfort; available to accommodate more guests if needed. This room is adjacent to a full bathroom and also large enough to accommodate an air mattress, a Pack ‘n Play, etc.
The kitchen opens onto the dining area which is situated in a windowed alcove with views of the water. The table can easily seat 8+ people.
The crown jewel of the house is the three-season porch — this amazingly beautiful room overlooks the waterfront and truly brings the forest and the water inside.
Floor-to-ceiling screens (windows in the colder months) make this room ideal at any time of the day. Enjoy coffee in the morning or dinner in the evening as the sun sets — no need to worry about mosquitoes! There is a dining table on the porch as well as an ample lounge area.
The screen porch overlooks a slate patio as well — find the gas grill and outdoor furniture here. Inside the screen porch there is a small area with a table and 2 chairs — perfect for putting together puzzles, playing board games or sorting through the treasures found on the beach.
The living room is open and large, centered around a massive granite fireplace. There is a sectional couch and other seating. The living room offers a large, flat-screen television and satellite reception. There is a also a high-quality sound system. The house is equipped with HughesNet, satellite-based WiFi.
Upstairs, find three bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master suite is large with a queen bed, a study alcove and a private bathroom. The bathroom has claw foot tub and a shower.
The other two upstairs bedrooms share a full bathroom in the hall — the second master has a queen bed and overlooks the water. The third upstairs bedroom is also quite large and has a twin bed and a double bed. There is plenty of room for an air mattress if it is needed.
Homeport offers a laundry room with a washer and dryer.
It`s the kind of house you are thrilled with the minute you walk in and the kind of house that makes you feel at home.

WIFI NOTE: SummerMaine recognizes that access to the internet is as important as electricity and running water to most, if not all, people. However, Maine is a more rural state by nature and infrastructure. Accessibility is limited, often unpredictable and unreliable depending on location.
While some properties do have internet connection that is more “modern”, many properties are in locations that only allow for DSL or satellite connection which can be slower and at the mercy of weather, whole network connectivity and the like.
Please be aware SummerMaine cannot guarantee the speed or accessibility of the internet at any of our properties during your stay.
Outages of any type are not the basis for a refund. We cannot guarantee repair times or repair person availability.
With that said, if you have certain needs regarding the internet, please let us know and we will indicate the properties providing the service that best meets your needs.
All linens and towels are provided.
Dogs may be considered with owner approval, non-refundable fee and pet policy agreement. Please inquire.
