Property Description

The Barnacle is a beautifully restored 1940s barn, transformed in to a seaside showplace. Resting only 35 feet from the harbor, it captures impressive views from throughout the interior of the home, as well as from the expansive deck running along the entire waterside of the home. A wide array of seafaring vessels makes use of this protected harbor, offering a tranquil yet ever changing view. The home has been restored top to bottom.


The interior is bright, comfortable and decorated in nautical style with a splash of antiques and family heirlooms. Cathedral ceilings give a spacious feel, as does the open floor plan for living room, dining area, library and kitchen. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to host a lobster bake for 30 on the beach or a quaint cocktail party on the deck. There are huge windows displaying the beauty of the harbor, along with pine floors, Kraft-maid cabinets and all major appliances (except no dishwasher). A beautiful gas fireplace was added in 2006. The laundry room is also on the main level. Four delightful bedrooms are upstairs. Each room has a different size bed: a king, a queen, a double and a twin.


It can sleep 7 upstairs and one of the downstairs couches pulls out to a double. Back outside, there is a staircase that leads down to a private beach, and personal mooring for those bringing or renting a boat. Nestled at the center of Bucks Harbor, its private situation belies the fact that it is just down the street from the Bucks Harbor Market & Marina, which offers organic veggies from the local growers, a huge variety of wines & cheeses, a pizza parlor, ice cream and a wonderful restaurant and marina area. There are weekly markets, too. Bucks Harbor Yacht Club is also within walking distance, and offers movie nights, square dancing, Saturday teas after the races, ping pong, tether ball and tennis. This quiet and peaceful area offers a nice smattering of activities to keep things both relaxing and interesting.

Can’t beat the location!

September 30, 2021

Loved our spot overlooking Bucks Harbor. We watched the weather roll in from the Reach every day. Great boat activity. Gas fireplace came in handy on chilly mornings and rainy afternoons!

Wonderful home and location!

July 14, 2021

We were hesitant about renting a home for which we could only find one review, but our fears were unwarranted, and we fell in love with this beautiful home and location! The Barnacle was clean and well stocked. The owners’ attention to detail ensured that we had everything we needed, and enjoyed a beautifully decorated cottage. We were there to explore the area, but found ourselves not wanting to leave the house because the deck overlooking Buck’s Harbor was too peaceful and beautiful to leave. We even got to watch a seal playing in the harbor all week, which was a highlight. We absolutely recommend this home, and thank the owners for sharing their piece of heaven.

Adorable cottage in a magical location

The Barnacle on Bucks Harbor is truly magical! The house is full of history and decorative touches reflective of a love for the Maine Coast; the location on Bucks Harbor looks like a painting and is unbeatable. The deck with the views of the working harbor, and the dock for your boat (and paddle boarding and crab fishing for the kids), provided endless hours of entertainment. It is also perfectly located next to the marina (our kids walked or paddled over daily for ice cream); the General Store; and of course all of the adventures awaiting you on the Penobscot; we can’t wait to go back!

A relaxing and peaceful spot

Beautiful spot and cozy house. The owners were responsive when we encountered plumbing issues and we hope that they are following through on their promise to upgrade the septic system which was outdated and not up to code. Bucks Harbor is beautiful – we rented kayaks and enjoyed paddling from the dock. A relaxing and peaceful spot by the sea.
