Idyllic Schooner Cove

Residents love their riverfront, overlooking the beautiful blue Damariscotta, a pristine waterfront unique among retirement communities in Maine! With some of the cleanest waters on the coast, this tidal river produces 80% of the oysters farmed in the state. Shore birds abound as do all manner of small boats. And on a clear night the sky, unobscured by urban light pollution, reveals an infinity of stars.

  • An architect-designed building in the celebrated Shingle Style of 19th century Newport “cottages,” a style described as “warm and sheltering.”
  • Historic, picturesque and lively Damariscotta Village nearby.
  • A comfortable size in a building with only 47 units, small enough so that it is easy to get to know everyone, large enough to offer many different activities– a size that allows the chefs to offer choices of entrees, with made-from-scratch, non-institutionalized dishes.
  • Steps away MaineHealth medical professionals on the campus of the award-winning LincolnHealth – Miles Campus.

In winter, residents watch the river ice over, snow fall, while snug and warm at cozy Schooner Cove. Maine truly does know how to handle ice and snow!

“I am so grateful that I discovered Schooner Cove.” Alice McAdams, a resident since 1991
