Welcome to Winter in New England! Make sure to check your calendar as December through March offers reduced rates while you experience another view of the ocean to marvel over. This ocean house provides a unique setting to begin your special coastal winter memories with friends and family. Everyone will enjoy the beauty of mid coast Maine; from local skiing (both downhill and cross country), sledding, ice skating, hikes, shopping and relaxing. Remember to take time to sip hot cocoa as you take in the breathtaking views of fresh snow meeting the blue ocean water. Be one of the first to stay in renowned Friendship Sloop builder, Wilbur Morse's, newly renovated Victorian Harbor House originally built at the end of the 1800's. Explore the history and charm of this fascinating house along with the local history of Friendship, Me. The harbor home provides a beautiful setting to reflect, while enjoying tasty local lobsters. Sail in by boat and dock at the wharf, fly in by plane or travel the path here by car, as the home is accessible by all. Friendship Maine is located in Mid Coast Maine on the Knox Lincoln County Line. Providing easy traveling access to Camden, Rockland, Union, Waldoboro, Damariscotta, Pemaquid and Boothbay. The Victorian is located at the end of Morse Lane and your vacation days will be filled with watching all the boats of Friendship Harbor; beautiful fishing vessels created by the home's current owner, just as Wilbur created the famous Friendship Sloops; all in pursuit of those special Maine lobsters. And don't miss out trying Maine's sweetest lobster. Fresh lobsters are dropped at the dock by two of the cutest little lobstermen you'll ever see (our grandsons), per our guests request, so you can choose the best time of the day to enjoy these decadent crustaceans. Merely pull up the crate from the water, pick out the one/s that suits you best and enjoy. This Victorian home is full of charm and character, originally built for $1,200 with lumber shipped from Bangor Me. You'll find plenty of space within the house. And the additions of new appliances including a stainless steel gas stove, dishwasher and washer and dryer helps you spend more time outside. The house also has two completely remolded bathrooms. Four bedrooms provide two twin beds, one full size bed, one queen bed and one California King bed. This home provides lots of outdoor seating and is located on a large lot with an awesome lawn, which flows directly to the ocean. A fifteen second walk and you reach the water. You'll find the old foundation to the boat shop still remains. This is a special spot to appreciate a perfect sunny day. Depending on the season, enjoy the beach, stick you feet in the ocean, fish off the wharf, take the kayaks out for a paddle, jump in for a swim or just reflect over the water views and let yourself unwind as you drift along with the waves. Make certain to note the week ending July 28 is Friendship Day and the week ending August 4th is the Lobster Festival; both area highlights. Along with other weeks offering both local Lobster Boat Races and Friendship Sloop Races.
