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.
"Ship Shape" is located in what was formerly the office of the church. It was totally renovated and a kitchen and bathroom with a shower was added. The only wall that is shared with the restaurant- Savory Maine -is the back of the shower. Because the apartment faces south- away from downtown- it is very quiet even though it is just a block from Main Street.
The apartment is cozy and is furnished with antiques.
Cozy is another word for small. If you need a lot of space to spread out this is not the place for you.
Boaters are welcome if they want to spend some time on land. We are a very short walk to the town landing. The bus stop is one block away. A car is not needed to visit this wonderful town. There is a trolley service in the summer to Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid Point.
Beach chairs and towels and provided.
Off street parking is provided.

Grace is right next door most days in the restaurant that she owns -Savory Maine. She can usually be found in the kitchen cooking & baking with the wonderful ingredients available in Maine. Pop over any time. She would love to share her love of this community. She has lived here for over thirty years and has no desire to live any where else.
Please just be respectful of the space.
I am a retired social worker and former manager of 2 natural food stores. I currently own and cook at Savory Maine Restaurant which is located in the historic building that the studio apartment is attached to. I have 2 cats & enjoy gardening & kayaking. I have filled in for several of my friends at their B & Bs and I am looking forward to hosting travelers to this fantastic community.
