About the neighbourhood
There are wonderful lake and ocean swimming beaches within a half hour drive. We love Popham Beach in Phippsburg, and Damariscotta Lake in Jefferson.
There are many restaurants in the area, and our favorites are Sea Basket, Le Garage, and Montsweag Roadhouse. Also , the famous 'Red's Eats' is in town. These businesses are in Wiscasset, which is a 10 minute drive from the house. Estes Lobster House is in Harpswell. Five Islands Lobster is in Georgetown. There are many restaurants in Boothbay Harbor, and many other activities including boat tours and 'Monkey See, Money Do'. There is a Botanical Garden in Boothbay which has quickly become a family favorite.
Shaw's grocery store is less than 10 minutes from the house.
