The Willett House

Seeking a quiet coastal getaway?
The Willett House is a charming 19th century home on a property adjacent to the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center, on the shore of the Damariscotta River. With a secluded beach and expansive woods at the end of a private lane, the Willett House is the perfect place to experience coastal Maine.
Willett House history
The property was donated to UMaine in 1975 by George Willett, a friend and contemporary of Ira C. Darling. Over the years it has been a favorite retreat for scientists conducting research at the DMC.
During your stay
Learn about the vibrant marine science and education underway at the Center. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour with the Darling Marine Center Director.  Explore the natural and maritime heritage of the Pemaquid Peninsula.
The house can accommodate up to four people and includes 21⁄2 baths, a living area, a fully equipped kitchen and wireless internet access. July $1,500/week for select weeks in May, September and October; pro-rated 3 night stays also possible depending on availability.
