Great value90% of recent guests gave this home’s value a 5-star rating.

Located in a historic 200 year old building "Ship Shape" is close to downtown but on a quiet residential street. Just one block to the library, bookstore, post office and all the lovely shops. It is on the shore of the Damariscotta River with wonderful views from inside and out.. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, the light, the outdoors space, and the new comfy bed. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.

What a cute little place with all the amenities you could need for a short stay. Great location on the banks of the Damariscotta River and walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. including the famous Reny’s. Clean and quiet.
