Make your home away from home at this four-bedroom Wiscasset property, a charming escape with a dog-friendly interior, a wonderful in-town location in one of Maine's most picturesque villages, and fantastic access to state parks, beaches, quaint towns, and other gems of the Midcoast.
This classic, two-level home sits on the north end of downtown Wiscasset, just down the street from Wiscasset Elementary School and the banks of the Sheepscot River. You'll be a half-mile walk from the heart of town (where you'll find such treasures as Red's Eats on Maine Route 1), 11 miles northeast of downtown Bath, and 13 miles north of bustling Boothbay Harbor.
Step inside this tidy home to feel a sense of history, warmth, and welcome. Pile on the sofa in the den as you browse the free WiFi and watch a bit of cable TV, or take a seat at the table in the parlor as you set up a board game and light an evening fire in the electric fireplace.
Begin each morning with a hearty breakfast sourced from the local farmers markets in Bath, Damariscotta, and Boothbay Harbor. Grind your own coffee beans for the coffeemaker and French press, flip blueberry pancakes on the sleek electric stove, and find ample seating space (including a high chair) for eight people at the circular dining tables.
Leave dinner bubbling away in the slow cooker - and the breakfast plates rinsing in the dishwasher - as you head outdoors to walk your dog through darling downtown Wiscasset (please note that a 20-lb. weight limit and a small nightly pet fee apply). Just be sure to stop for one of Maine's best buttery lobster rolls at Red's Eats on the north side of Maine Route 1.
Spend your days driving the coast or kayaking the Sheepscot River, and return home to relax in the comfort of your shaded porch and manicured lawn. Throw the day's clothes in the washer/dryer, light the gas grill for a barbecue dinner, and dine on local lobsters and haddock for a true Maine summer experience.
The Sea Salt will accommodate eight guests (please note that the queen bed is in an attached studio space). Additional amenities include a flatscreen TV and a window AC unit in the master bedroom, a clawfoot tub in one of the bathrooms, and a baby gate for your littlest travelers.
Although you need never leave Wiscasset to experience the charms of Maine, you'll be astounded by the variety of towns, beaches, parks, and attractions within your reach. Spend a morning in the historic shipbuilding city of Bath, where you can tour the Maine Maritime Museum 12 miles southwest, or indulge your inner green thumb at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens 13 miles south.
Looking to hit the beach? Head 14 miles south to Barrett Park in Boothbay Harbor, or spend a day on the gorgeous sand at Reid State Park (24 miles south) or Popham Beach State Park (26 miles south). Find peace and tranquility in Georgetown 19 miles south, rent kayaks for the day at Tidal Transit Kayak in Boothbay Harbor, or take a drive that you'll never forget to the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse 23 miles southeast.
