We had a lovely and relaxing stay at this beautiful home. It was the perfect staging point for day trips to Acadia, Deer Island and Schoodic. We enjoyed sightseeing in Castine, particularly the historic landmarks pertaining to the Penobscot Expedition. The Castine Visitor Center was a wealth of information and the person I spoke with was very knowledgeable about the area. The Plein Air Festival was in progress while we were there, an opportunity for invited artists to paint local scenery for 3 days, culminating in a juried art exhibit, A fundraiser for the local arts organization. We also visited and swam Wadsworth Cove , a local swim beach and were delighted to watch someone parasailing. You can walk, bike or kayak to most everything in Castine. There is a Windmill Hill gardens and grocery by the golf course, where you can get tasty ingredients for an impromptu meal or the local market a 2 minute walk from the house. The house is cozy and welcoming, kitchen is well appointed to cook in, a great library of literary fiction, history , classic and contemporary fiction. We had ongoing games of Cribbage and Monopoly. We felt really special and lucky to stay in a beautiful place as Castine in such a cool house.
Do not be discouraged by the exterior of this house. It's a work in progress and is not an indicator of the interior. The interior has been charmingly and lovingly restored. If staying in an old house is your thing you've come to the right place. If staying in a sterile Disney style resort is your preference this may not be your choice. The house is centrally located in the heart of Maine's coastal vacation area with easy access to Camden, Belfast and Acadia National Park. If you plan on doing a lot of activities in Acadia you might want to stay in Bar Harbor overnight as returning to Castine after a tiring day on roads without street lights will be quite a challenge. Overall we had a great week in Maine.
We could not be more pleased with our stay in Castine. If we could have changed anything, it would have been to stay longer! The house was well appointed, extremely comfortable and accommodated our group of adults and children well. It was fascinating to walk through the home and explore the it's history which we discovered in its nooks and crannies. I don't want to ruin the surprise but the homeowners have retained 'the writing on the walls' that reveals parts of the home's long history. The location of the home is exceptional. We were in walking distance of everything that Castine has to offer... shops, eateries, bookstores, golf, the waterfront, historic architecture, the town common, and art galleries... we even managed a 5 mile loop to the Dyce lighthouse and Witherle Woods. Castine did not disappoint. We took day trips to Acadia, Bar Harbor and Bangor. The nearby market has pretty much everything you need but if you want a larger grocery store, plan to stop in Ellsworth or Bucksport, depending on which direction you are coming from (its a 30-45 minute trip to the either location). The homeowners were so easy to communicate with and always responded promptly to our inquiries. They even helped us plan for our trip with activity ideas and notable places to eat. The in-town property manager was a gem too! We were a little behind schedule in our arrival but she waited for us to make sure we got settled in accordingly. One concern I have about staying in old homes is modern conveniences but we didn't have to worry because we were pleasantly surprised to have plenty of updated bathrooms and an updated kitchen along with a very nice laundry unit. We have already decided to head back and stay at this home again within the year. I highly recommend this home for those wishing to stay in or near Castine!
We had a wonderful stay at this home in the heart of Castine. The home is beautifully maintained and spotless. It is exactly as it is described. It is also well equipped with everything you will need. Our family of 6 were very comfortable. The owners could not have been more responsive and helpful. It is located right on Main Street providing easy access to everything this quaint town has to offer - shops and restaurants, tennis and golf at the Castine Golf Club, and a hike in the Witherle Woods. We would happily stay in this house again.
Just returned from Maine Maritime Academy graduation. The house was perfect. It is charming and comfortable. The owners are wonderful and so helpful. The house is a perfect Castine location and a wonderful vacation spot.
Stayed here last summer and had a perfect week in Castine. The lovingly restored house is as comfortable as it is charming. Owners are dedicated antiquarians with strong backgrounds in history, and have brought impeccable taste to bear in evoking its colonial past. It's also a stone's throw from the town's best restaurants, bars and shops, and a short walk to the waterfront and golf course (itself a gem!). A perfect getaway replete with historical flavor--can't say enough.
O porto histórico de Castine está localizado na Penobscot Bay, cerca de metade do caminho até a costa de Maine. A pequena e pitoresca cidade da Nova Inglaterra, Castine oferece uma pausa calma e relaxante do resto do mundo. Você pode navegar galerias e lojas do centro, jantar em restaurantes da orla, examinar o mercado local, ou desfrutar de um rolo de lagosta no cais da cidade - tudo está convenientemente localizado a poucos passos da casa. Há também uma série de atividades a uma curta distância e ciclismo, como golfe, ténis, canoagem e caminhadas. Ela também serve como uma base para unidades de curta duração para as cidades ao redor do monte península azul, Deer Isle, Camden, Bar Harbor, e Acadia National Park.
