Charming, Comfortable and Convenient, near everything midcoast has to offer

Located in: Wiscasset

Smack in the middle of the prettiest village in Maine.The Oar House, on a quiet side street is near everything mid coast offers: Ocean scenery, lighthouses, hiking , boating, whale watching, shops and antiques, great restaurants and arguably the most famous Lobster Shack in Maine, Reds Eats is a short walk away. Authentic 1918 shingled cottage with two spacious bedrooms on the second floor, a full bathroom on both levels. Beautiful eclectic furniture, artwork,good linens ,well equipped kitchen.
Beautifully furnished with a mix of contemporary and antiques this house exudes charm. There is artwork everywhere and from everywhere. The owners and ancestors consists of Sea Captains, sailors, pilots, diplomats, miners and artists, the house reflects their travels and talents.The house is two stories and may not be suitable for guests with mobility issues or small children. The master bedroom has an Antiques West Indian 4 poster high bed with a queen mattress. The second bedroom has an brass bed converted to a queen.The pretty upstairs bathroom has a claw foot tub and shower combo. There is a comfortable Daybed in the private first floor sun room off the living area that can be used for an addition sleeping space. Please advise us if you need to have the day bed made up as a bed. LOL the owner finds it a perfect spot for that afternoon nap.
The new downstairs bathroom, next to the laundry does have a large handicap accessible shower. The fully equipped kitchen has an electric range and a full size refrigerator, and quality pots and pans for those who plan to cook. There is a gas barbecue outside and we plan to add some outdoor living area soon. Until then, we enjoy sitting on out front stoop and enjoying the clean air and our pretty historic neighborhood but we eat in our sunny dining room.

The neighborhood

Wiscasset is famous for lots of things, the Prettiest Village in Maine, The Wiscasset Speedway, the worm (fish bait) capital of the world, five masted schooners, Sea captains homes, some open to the public and dozens of specialty and Antique shops and Art galleries, and of course Reds Eats.
A real must visit in Wiscasset is TREATS, a bakery/Deli/gourmet wine and cheese and well ,all sorts of Treats shop is just a 3-4 minute walk from the "Oar House". We also love to stroll to "Sarahs" on the waterfront for a great moderate priced meal with a gorgeous view ( save room for desert or take it to go). Reds Eats is just across the street get there early or if you do not want to wait in line for a lobster roll you can take a few more steps down to the shore and have one at Spragues, or a crab roll, clams, a shore dinner, whole Lobster etc.
Jump in the car for a two minute drive to one of the finest restaurants in the area. The little Village Bistro is the place for a special dinner, but make a reservation because it is popular. If fried seafood is what you crave, the Sea Basket is a couple of minutes drive south on Route 1, not far from Ships Chow Hall which is THE breakfast spot with cheerful service and homemade bread.. Grocery shopping is easy with a major Shaws super market a short drive south on Route 1 and for last minute essentials but with decent sandwiches, Pizza and an outstanding wine selection try the Quikstop right around the corner on RT 27 ( they also carry to die for "Gelato Fiasco" made in Portland)
Damariscotta is only 9 miles away and an easy drive for another dozen or so eateries offering everything from a Mexican food truck to Thai to charming pubs and more cute shops and the two original Renys where Mainers have been getting bargains for dozens of years.
You can rent a Kayak a 5 minute walk or a 2 minute drive away down on the town dock. The Sheepscot is a beautiful estuary to explore.
Portland Maine is only about 45 minutes away as is Rockland and Camden. In the same amount of time you can get down to the Pemaquid peninsula with stunning scenery,a lighthouse, a beach and a colonial fort. Boothbay Harbor is even closer with boat tours, whale watching, shopping, and restaurants. The Maine Botanical Gardens nearby are just spectacular and worth a trip anytime of year. Popham Beach, Five islands, Reid state park are all within an easy drive. Freeport LL beans and dozens of outlest are an easy 30 minute drive There are many hiking and biking opportunities in neighborhood also. A great morning walk would be to cross the bridge to Edgecomb . Watch the lobster men haul their traps, walk a little further and visit the Sheepscot River Pottery on Davis island. If you are a real walker Fort Edgecomb is not far either. The Sheepscot river offers kayakers lots of opportunities to explore beautiful scenery both upriver or down.
