Named for the child who spent her childhood in this sweet house nestled in the woods of Tenants Harbor. Now, her captivating paintings grace the walls of a house built next to a mountain of granite left over from Wild Cat Quarry and just a whisper away from the shores of Tenants Harbor.
Annie's House is a quiet, semi-rustic retreat surrounded by tall spruces and a well maintained lawn and gardens. Built for a family of sailors, the house is constructed with the sturdiness of a ship and a delightful airiness that all vacation rentals in Maine should have.
Located on Haskell Point Road, a quiet road winding its way along the shore, the house has a right-of-way to the shore just 300 yards from the front door. Here you can launch kayaks or simply sit and watch boats pass in front of you — beyond them see High Island, Southern Island and Northern Island.
A repeat renter says her favorite thing to do is walk down to the rocks in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over Tenants Harbor.
It would be easy to walk into Tenants Harbor for breakfast, coffee or to pick up the paper in the morning. Or pick up some lobsters or fresh fish. Port Clyde is just a 5-mile drive away and Rockland is a hop, skip and a jump — about 15 minutes up the road.
The main part of the house houses the kitchen, dining area and the living room.
The living room has a couch, shelves filled with books, a propane-fired woodstove and a television that receives basic reception. There is also a radio and Internet is provided for guest use.
Off the living room find the dining area which looks out to the yard and limited views of the water. Find an outdoor table with seating for 4 and a charcoal BBQ (guests must supply their own briquettes).
The kitchen is just off the dining room and is centered around an island. There is a full-sized gas stove for cooking, as well as a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. The house is supplied with cooking equipment as well.
The full bath is off the living room, with a claw-foot tub outfitted with a shower head.
Upstairs — accessed by a hybrid staircase/ship's ladder with hand railings — find two bedrooms.
The first has one twin bed and the second has a double bed.
The other bedroom is above the multi-purpose room off the kitchen. This room is the perfect place to take off your shoes after a sandy day at the beach. The bedroom above is very private with beautiful built-ins and 180-degree views of the woods and the yard. This is also a double bed.
Annie's House is about a little solitude, peacefulness and tall pines creaking in the salty air — all the while, knowing civilization is just a walk down the road. It's as perfect for 2 people as it is for 4.

"Our family has used Summer Maine for the past 5 summers to find beautiful properties in Tenant's Harbor. Our kids (now 3 and 6) have grown up visiting Maine in the summer. Summer Maine has always been very helpful, and even helped us find a new place when our first choice became suddenly unavailable at the last minute. We will definitely use them in the future."
WIFI NOTE: SummerMaine recognizes that access to the internet is as important as electricity and running water to most, if not all, people. However, Maine is a more rural state by nature and infrastructure. Accessibility is limited, often unpredictable and unreliable depending on location.
While some properties do have internet connection that is more “modern”, many properties are in locations that only allow for DSL or satellite connection which can be slower and at the mercy of weather, whole network connectivity and the like.
Please be aware SummerMaine cannot guarantee the speed or accessibility of the internet at any of our properties during your stay.
Outages of any type are not the basis for a refund. We cannot guarantee repair times or repair person availability.
