About the Moorings
The Moorings is fully booked through mid-September 2021, but we have spots available from late September on. Please check availability on the website for most updated information.
Please note that the Moorings is more of an independent Airbnb style house / apartment rental than a hotel - while we will try to answer all requests in a timely manner, we do not have a formal check-in, staff onsite every day, unlimited sheets and towels, daily cleaning, etc. We expect guests to read directions carefully, conserve resources and leave units in the condition they were rented (aside from laundry of course).
Not only summer rentals! Most units are open year-round and most offer extended stays.
Years in its development, the Moorings has evolved to its present state by respectful attention to detail. The Capodilupos worked in Boston as real estate developers for years, and after early retirement found they needed a new project, creating an amazing vacation rental compound on the rugged coast of Maine. The Moorings introduces you to the beauty of Maine and the unspoiled and natural beauty of New Harbor.
Tony and Sally Capodilupo worked together on a myriad of projects. They were award-winning real estate developers in the Greater Boston area; they were recipients of the Boston Society of Architects Award. Tony was a licensed real estate broker and an Active A past member of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board. They owned and managed several prime pieces of real estate in Boston.
They produced the musicals, NUNSENSE and NUNSENSE II, which ran in repertory to become the longest running musicals in Boston's theatrical history. They owned, developed, and managed an entertainment complex, (legitimate theatre, cabaret, and restaurant)THEATRE LOBBY, in Boston's North End. Tony, a graduate of Boston Latin School (founded in 1635), Boston College and Yale University, and Sally, a graduate of West Virginia University, worked professionally and produced shows on and off Broadway. Tony was the leading character actor for ten years at the Williamstown Theatre in Williamstown, Massachusetts, one of the most distinguished theatres in the country.
Sadly, Tony and Sally Capodilupo have passed away and their daughters Mia and Liza now own and run the business as a tribute to their parents, and to preserve the amazing legacy they built over 40 years of restoring historic Maine homes. Mia is a real estate owner/manager, artist and contemporary art gallery curator in Chicago, and Liza is a Certified Nurse Midwife at Beverly Hospital in Massachusetts, and a professor of Nursing at Georgetown University.
As our dad always said "Just try to leave things a little better than you found them".
