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 Willett House can accommodate up to four people and includes 2-1⁄2 baths, a living area, a fully equipped kitchen and wireless internet access. It can be rented for $1,500/week for select weeks April-September. Availability is very limited!
