A note from the owners: Opportunity drove us from the East Coast to Los Angeles to Nashville —yes. a full life. However, one evening about 15 years ago, the question arose, “If we are no longer tethered to the virtual workplace if we can settle anywhere on earth, where would it be?” For generations, our families flourished in the northeast — summer gatherings in Maine knotted the generational fabric so it was only natural that our search for a place should begin here, on the rocky coast of Maine. We looked at parcels of land in the mid-coast region. When we first stood on the granite promontory overlooking the Damariscotta River at 8 Merry Island Road, we could envision the unique glass cottage that now shepherds the cove below.

However, one evening about 15 years ago, the question arose, “If we are no longer tethered to the virtual workplace if we can settle anywhere on earth, where would it be?” For generations, our families flourished in the northeast — summer gatherings in Maine knotted the generational fabric so it was only natural that our search for a place should begin here, on the rocky coast of Maine. We looked at parcels of land in the mid-coast region. When we first stood on the granite promontory overlooking the Damariscotta River at 8 Merry Island Road, we could envision the unique glass cottage that now shepherds the cove below. We found our place and together we built an uncompromised sanctuary. Now, we invite you to enjoy the wonderment of a sunrise on the Damariscotta, a kingfisher surging from its nest, and an oyster farmer finishing his day of work. ___________________________________ Secluded, year-around, contemporary vacation home featuring breathtaking views and 300′ of shoreline access are now available for short-term spring, summer, fall, and winter rentals. Merry Island Cottage is located on the Damariscotta River 10 miles from Boothbay Harbor, 6 miles from Damariscotta/Newcastle and 11 miles from the village of Wiscasset. Relax in the private, wooded waterfront environment. Experience the daily activities of a working coastal inlet from the expansive cottage windows or the oversized screened porch. Lobster boats, trawlers, sailing vessels, and vacation yachts blend with osprey, blue herons, and wild turkeys to punctuate the coastal landscape. Kayak, swim, fish, sail, motor, paddle or just float in our private saltwater bay. Merry Island Cottage offers 2600 square feet of living space. The open kitchen/dining/living area features 20′ ceilings, large fir crossbeams and a wall of windows. __________________________________________ The main level also includes the master bedroom and bath, a laundry/storage space, an extra ½ bath, a large screened sleeping porch and a deck and multiple entrances into the main living areas. The lower level features a full bath, a guest room, a large bunkroom, and a natural wood porch with entrances to each of the lower bedrooms. The double story layout allows for privacy when needed.
