Perched above the shoreline of the Sheepscot River, this inviting heirloom cottage offers seclusion for those who value it. You'll hear water lapping the pilings beneath the floorboards and sea lions roaring as they bask on a rocky ledge exposed by the receding tide.
The magnificent cottage view takes in a sweeping expanse of shoreline and a forested river bank on the opposite side. The travel of the sun, the sweeping cloud covers, and morning mist continuously alter the light and shadow throughout the day.
The rapidly changing tides redraw the curves of the shoreline hourly. After sunset, a pulsing light house beacon can be spotted downriver where the Sheepscot and the Atlantic meet.
My wife and I have been visiting this jewel of a cottage for 25 years (we were married on the front deck). Although there are many engaging Midcoast activities and landmark destinations to enjoy on day excursions, we have at times passed our entire vacation savoring the cottage and its surroundings with only a grocery-store run to remind us of civilization.
We highly recommend this unique cottage, its dazzling waterfront site and many acres of pristine forest, its easy access to Route One and the Midcoast, and its friendly and helpful owners.
