Thank you for a wonderful time - your cottage is as homey and welcoming as the photos suggest. This is the real Maine - end of a dirt road in an interesting region. The cove views from the living room windows and decks, wow,oh wow. Oh, we so relaxed.
Plus, this is the quietest place we've ever rented - just what we needed after a busy day of exploring. Your kayaks looked inviting, thanks for making them available. We didn't use the equipment but appreciated the option.
When we saw your loft with sleeping for 8 - 10 people, I thought that this would be a cool place for a writers or yoga retreats or a girls' getaway. Teens would love it - a space of their own.
The peninsula offers so much to explore for kids to adults. Martin Point Lighthouse - on a rainy afternoon we read the vintage lightkeepers' journals in the small adjacent museum. In Port Clyde, perhaps 6 miles away from the cottage, is the ferry to Monhegan Island. Port Clyde is a small charming working port.
Plus, busy Rockland town is only 20 minutes away - art, music, island ferries, great food. Don't miss the Farnsworth Art Museum or the walk out to Rockland Light. For Wyeth fans, the Farnsworth offers tickets and directions to the Olson House (Christina's World).
After writing all this, I am homesick for St. George, I'm a former Mainer and recommend this highly for those who want to experience Maine in a traditional way - active outdoors, unplugged, or quiet when you need it.
