Unique and Comfortable!
Wow! What an amazing Experience. Chip and Olga are kind and attentive and accommodated us for a last minute booking, which we were so grateful for. I almost didn’t want to get out of the super comfy bed but it was worth it to drink a coffee on the deck looking out at the birds flying over the water. The water pressure in the shower was way better than I expected and overall we were so comfortable, with all the amenities of a hotel room. Of course the novelty of the experience adds to the whole thing and you can tell the attention to detail that they’ve put into the place. If I’m ever back in Maine I’ll definitely stay here again.

No ac
Did not greet us .When we got to the boat no Ac. Never saw them except when we went on tour boat with them. They said the ac went out with the couple ahead of us. We called and they told us that the bedroom ac works but not the cabin ac and that they would bring us fans. We could sleep in the bedroom with the ac going. Could not stay in the cabin way too hot. The fans that they dropped off were so small. The next day they said that they ordered the new ac but it would not be in tell next week. They also told us that if the ac in the cabin was working that we could not use both of them at the same tine would trip breaker. The wi fi was if you had on your phone. Never apologized for the problem. They seamed to go into hiding. Never saw again. Was not what i expected everyone in Maine was so nice and cared about you having a good time.

Birthday Getaway
This was a surprise getaway for my husband’s birthday. Olga, our host was privy to this. She was great as she played along as we first went on the Damaracotta River cruise which she and hubby Chip also run. The NEBI is wonderful...spacious salon, comfortable bed, nice galley with roomy table and the deck was outfitted with comfy chairs. And all within a few minutes walk to town. Summing up: beyond expectations! Great weekend.

Most relaxing vacation ever
Staying on Nebi was the most relaxing vacation ever ! If you want a 21st Century great time, don’t stay in a hotel. Nebi provides such peace & tranquility with your only neighbors being birds & harbor seals. Wake up everyday to a different world, one day fog & light rain, with the Damariscotta river like glass as the tide ebbs under the bridge. The next day bright sunshine, just a harmonic existence with nature. I can’t express what an experience on Nebi meant to me, it was a piece of heaven right here on earth. All my cares melted away. Everything is in walking distance & the people are so friendly, what a pleasure. I cannot wait to book Nebi again, it’s nice to know there is a place on earth as beautiful & where the energy reeks of peace, in a very chaotic world. Many thanks to Olga & Chip who made me feel so at home. Debra Provenzano, NYC.

Awesome stay
Awesome stay aboard the Nebi. We had a wonderful time on the Nebi. Chip and Olga were very welcoming. The yacht was comfortable and roomy. There was always a cool breeze. The small marina the Nebi was docked at was very clean and safe. The restaurant a the marina was good and not noisey. The restaurant had music a few times during the week we were there and the music level was just right we could sit on our upper deck and have cocktails and listen the the music.

Map
About the neighbourhood
The Twin Villages of Damariscotta - Newcastle conveniently located only 2 min. off of the major highway, Route 1, in Midcoast Maine. Damariscotta, the 'river of many fishes' in Abernaki, is named for the alewives that annually migrate the Damariscotta River and then 'climb' the amazing fish ladder at Damariscotta Mills in order to spawn in the Lake. The river is also one of the northernmost mating grounds of the primitive and marvelous horseshoe crab. And these waters support seals, ospreys, bald eagles, king fishers, great blue herons, mackerel and stripe bass, just to name a few. Humans have also worked this river for about 13,000 years. Their most famous legacy forms immense, white oyster shell mounds on the riverbanks.
Getting around
During the day you also have the option of taking an aquaculture tour and sample the world famous oysters with Damariscotta River Cruises, and in the evening receive a complementary drink on us while listening to live music on their sunset cruise. Another day maybe walk around the twin villages to shop, visit art galleries, dine in one of the fabulous restaurants or take a short sightseeing trip to the historic lighthouse at Pemaquid Point, Boothbay, Round Pond, Damariscotta is only 45 min from Freeport's L L Beans, 1 hour from Portland and 45 min from Rockland / Camden.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Nebi, the Bed and Boat, is in Schooner Landing Restaurant and Marina. Address: 40 Main St, Damariscotta, ME 04543. Code to the marina: C1958 When you get off Rt 1, in 1 min you will reach a little bridge that crosses the Damariscotta River. Take your very first right after the Kayak rental shop into Schooner Landing Restaurant's parking lot. You can park your car there for free, and it is safe all nite. Please do not park your car overnight by the dumpsters. Early mornings the dump truck comes and needs to empty them out. I wouldn't want anything to happen to your car :) Chip and I will be running a boat tour between 2-4pm so we may not be able to greet you right away. You will find a black dock cart by the gate to the marina on your right. The code of the Marina's gate is: C1958 (we will text you if that changes). Please make yourself at home and we will see you after 4pm. If you'd like to join us on a tour down the Damariscotta River, please look up Damariscotta River Cruises online.
