Remodeled waterfront home with a wrap-around deck, water views & beach access!

Wake up to panoramic views of the Medomak River at this three-bedroom Waldoboro home, a private waterfront retreat with a gorgeous remodeled interior, a wrap-around deck, and direct access to the river, Muscongus Bay, and the open Atlantic Ocean to the south. Witness spectacular sunrises in the morning and gorgeous moon views at night.

Scenically secluded in an 11-acre meadow with wildflowers and fireflies, this two-level home sits on the western banks of the wide Medomak River five miles south of downtown Waldoboro. You'll be just a few paddles in your kayak (rented locally) from where Muscongus Bay meets the ocean, and 21 miles west of the restaurants and beautiful breakwater in downtown Rockland. From this special location, you might even spot bald eagles, ospreys, seals, bobolinks, and a variety of seabirds.

Follow the lengthy driveway to discover a remote piece of property with generous parking and an unrivaled waterfront position. Inside, you'll find an open living space that has been extensively remodeled with hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, lovely wood accents, and a wall of windows that overlook the water.

Come home from a day of kayaking to rest your tired limbs on the plush sofa, use the WiFi to post photos of your adventures, or play a game of cards around the modern glass coffee table. As your clothes spin in the washer/dryer, you can join your family for an evening in front of the large flatscreen cable TV.

When you're not enjoying breakfast at Moody's Diner just up the road, you'll have a well-equipped, fully renovated kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and plentiful counter space. Whip up some homemade blueberry pancakes, sit down to eat at the breakfast bar or six-person dining table, and use the dishwasher for easy clean-up. And when the weather's nice, cook up something tasty on the gas grill outside.

Spend your days canoeing and kayaking in the river, basking in the sunshine on the wrap-around deck, and enjoying the breathtaking bay and river views from the patio table. You'll have more than 400 feet of private tidal waterfront access with classic Maine granite rocks, tide pools, and mud flats. Back inside, you can curl up with a good book in the second sitting room and open the glass doors to let in the coastal breeze.

As many as six guests will sleep soundly in this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home. The open loft-style master bedroom, which overlooks the river and the great room below, has a king-size bed and a private renovated bathroom. The main floor features one bedroom with a queen bed and one with twin bunkbeds.

Thanks to its beautiful position along Route 1 in Midcoast Maine, Waldoboro is a magnet for water sports enthusiasts, hikers, and guests in search of quiet relaxation. Take a short drive into town for the morning to peruse the shops and restaurants on Main Street, or follow the river in your car, sailboat, or sea kayak to reach the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse 21 miles south.

Spend a day strolling the streets of downtown Rockland, where you can eat breakfast at the Home Kitchen Cafe or sit down for dinner at Primo, the farm-to-table restaurant of James Beard Award-winner Melissa Kelly. You'll also be just 26 miles west of Camden Hills State Park, which is renowned for its hiking trails, seaside views, and gorgeous autumn color. Nearby, you can visit Boothbay and the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, or even Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

Your vacation on the shores of Midcoast Maine awaits - reserve your stay at this lovely Waldoboro home today!

We had a very nice stay at the Eagle's Nest

Loved the overall feel of the home and the nature around it. The waterfront is rugged and fun to explore. The loft and atmosphere in the house is peaceful and quaint and our family enjoyed our time there. Waking up to the sunrise was our favorite part of the day.

It's mid-coast Maines best kept secret! Nesttled between touristy Rockland and Wiscasset is the quaint off the grid town of Waldoboro. This house sits right on the Medomak River which is really "Maine speak" for an Atlantic Ocean inlet. The water views are spectacular from just about everywhere in the house but the loft bed room's view is dazzling! We woke up to sunlit waters every morning which were absolutely magical, right from our bed!
The house itself, a mid century modern was built and owned by PD Eastman who was a compadre' of Dr. Sues and wrote The Best Nest and Who Is My Mother among many other children's classics of the 60s and 70s. The house is tastefully appointed with modern yet comfy furnishings. It's got everything you need which you can read in the listing, but if you want something special and unique that allows you to chill and relax in the coolest possible way without the bother of traffic and tourists, this is your house.

The house was perfect for us, plenty of privacy and ample bathrooms.
The kitchen is small but well-stocked with dishes, cooking utensils and appliances.
The view is lovely of the tides going in and out, lots of wildlife, and a large deck on which to view it all and grill, read and relax!

Everything was perfect

Quiet, peaceful location. nice views. clean and updated home. deer and wild turkeys around. lacks air conditioning which is needed during the summer, especially with king bed in loft. huge field in front but not enough mowed for kids to play in. no kayaks or canoes for use on hand. looks bigger in pictures, very small in size. No privacy for more than one family. Nice deck in back overlooks river, but bright sun rises at 0430 make for short nights sleeping upstairs(minimal curtains). Good but not great stay over July 4th week 2018.
Manager response:
We apologize for any discomfort experienced. The home is located right on the Medomak River, and if guests open the windows on both sides of the home, there is a steady sea breeze that runs through the house to keep cool. The front and backyards offer plenty of play space for kids, and since there are 75 acres, we cannot ask the owner to mow every week. Kayaks and canoes are not listed as an amenity for this property. There are darkening curtains in the loft area to block the sun. Thanks!

I have stayed in several rental homes in mid-coast Maine but cannot imagine a more beautiful home than Eagle's Nest. The home itself was the perfect size and layout for a family with children or a romantic retreat for a couple and I loved the Pottery Barn like furnishings. The views were equally stunning, with acres of fields on one side and a wide expanse of water on the other. Each day began by watching the breathtaking sunrise from the loft bedroom, kayaking along the river, fishing from the rocks, napping on the deck with a book in hand, sharing a drink, cooking dinner on the grill and then doing it all over. Truly spectacular in every way!

We went to this property with a group of 6 friends. It was perfect. Lots of space, we had a great time and the house was very comfortable. A little limited on kitchen ware, but so long as you can clean and re-use pans there was no problem cooking for the group. The only downside was that there were no kayaks as advertised, there was a canoe, but it was locked up and we couldn't figure out how to get it unlocked. Overall, I highly recommend this house if you want a quiet place to hang out, read and drink on the porch. The yard was fantastic as well. Lots of lawn game space.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconvenience and for the confusion. The kayaks & canoes are not advertised as amenities of the home. They were mentioned on another site's listing page as a means of personal entertainment because of the proximity to local waterways. There is a local shop in the area for guests to rent the kayaks/canoes. Thank you.

After a recent move and a period of demanding work, we were looking to get away. The Eagles Nest provided the perfect getaway! The house is remote, but not so much that to make it inconvenient. It is perfectly isolating. The moment you pull in the driveway, past the rows of butterfly bushes and the swarming monarchs, you feel like you are on vacation. The house is beautiful and the wall of windows welcomes the sunrise each morning. We started every morning with kayaking up to Waldoboro or down to Havener's Ledge. (Kayaks from MidCoast Kayak). Quick day trips included: hiking in Camden Hills State Park (40 min drive), Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland (30 min drive), Pemaquid Point Light (40 min drive), and the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. One of the highlights of the trip was definitely Fawcett's Antique Toy & Art Museum, a quirky spot on Rt 1 with an amazing collection of antique and vintage toys and art. But you could simply stay in the house the entire week. The local grocery is nearby, as well as the fantastic Spears Farmstand and Delano Seafood for fresh items. We felt comfortable and completely relaxed the entire week. Highly recommended.

While it is a little off the beaten path, we enjoyed our time here. Many places nearby to venture out. The house was well kept and the porch was perfect!!!

We had a great time here and enjoyed the visit from the turkeys. Close to every place we wanted to go. Beautiful views from house.
