If you are looking for a great, fun vacation house in Castine this is it. The home is welcoming and comfortable, it almost felt like we had stayed at the house many times before, even though it was our first time.
The house is spacious and has three floors that gives everyone room and offers a space a great space to gather on the second floor due to the open kitchen, dining area and deck. This is a perfect Maine vacation house with plenty of room for enjoying life. There are a couple of decks that have a great view of the water, an awesome front porch and it has a yard that is ready for crochet or bocce ball – the house has a croquet set and I think badminton, we borrowed a bocce ball set from some local friends.
The house is setup for a great relaxing week in Maine – it has a good kitchen and grill on the deck – really the perfect setup for cocktailing, grilling and enjoying great fresh food with friends and family. Its a short walk to anywhere in town, to Dyce Head or the Wirtherle Woods. The best days were spent just walking to Markel’s for some coffee and a quick bite, then doing a little local area stuff and getting back to this house in the afternoon to enjoy some great local beer and fresh seafood, and beating family in yard games. If you are looking for a house geared towards spending time enjoying Maine, the company of friends/family and having fun, this is it. I would also recommend checking out the night kayaking trip as the bay has some bioluminescent dinoflagellates residents.
