My family of six were blessed to spend a week in this jewel of a house! The pictures can not convey how beautiful it is. The view and sounds of crashing waves below the home will take your breath away.
First, it is absolutely spotlessly clean, The beds were comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to make a meal. It is a sunny place with lots of windows to let in the natural cool breezes. It has a well kept yard with plenty of grass that leads to the rocky coastline where I sat for hours watching the waves crash and spray high in the air. Awesome. Look to the right and see the classic lighthouse, walk down at sunset or sunrise and have it to yourself before the crowds arrive. The house is on a little road just up from the lighthouse and no one drives down it but the people staying there. It is really quiet and private.
The three upstairs bedrooms (not shown in the pictures) are chock full of antique furniture, my grand daughters loved their rooms. The rooms have even better views of the ocean too, and oh my those breezes are heavenly!
The bedroom on the lower level is perfect for the elderly and close to the bathroom. It is not ocean front but I could still hear the surf at night and look at the pretty window box and garden in the morning.
The one bathroom could present a problem for some I guess, we managed fine. It is a large bathroom, painted a pale blue with a window with a crisp white curtain. It is really nice.
The house had three bikes in the shed that my grand daughters used to ride down to get ice cream cones everyday. (Seagull Gift Shop and Restaurant). We walked to breakfast there a few times as well, I highly recommend. It was nice to let them have some independence and feel safe. They also loved to "run the rocks" that Pemaquid Point is known for. Just make sure they stay away from ocean. It is challenging to navigate those granite cliffs, sigh, I can't do it anymore...but got to see my girls do it!
I over posted on facebook whist there and all my friends are like : "Where are you? I want to rent that place!" I wish I could post some of my photos here.
I squeezed a week out of the rental availability, its totally booked in August from families that return every year. If you are lucky enough to find an opening...you get the drift.
Thank you Sandy, I need a month next year! Tell Heidi I wish she could come clean my house, and thank her for me once more.
