About Joan Belcher
Joan Thompson was born in Belfast, Maine. Graduate of University of Southern Maine. Registered Nurse by vocation. Innkeeper by avocation. Daughter Christabelle lives in Palm Beach Gardens Florida with husband and son. Son Nate lives in Kennebunk, Maine with wife. Joan has a 'bakery' on the garden level of the cottage where she makes scones every morning. With a kitchen garden by the front porch and the family garden in the back and a root cellar to fill, she stays busy. She lives in paradise. 'Living in Sheepscot Village is like living in Brigadoon! You know the real world is only 5 miles away but you can pretend to be living in another century when life was about the art of every day living!'

What makes this cottage unique
'That was an experience!' is the most heard phrase after staying as an overnight guest, a group lunch reservation, or even Afternoon Tea. A house tour finds you a vast collection of antiques that hark back to 1900's when the art of living took up all energy and time. From the antique cookstove, icebox, pie safes, and sink to the cash register, post office and general store collections.....every corner boasts an era gone by. The chickens in the backyard live in the Coop de Ville! The kitchen garden lining the softly curved brick walk into the cottage and the backyard vegetable garden. Homemade jam, eggs from the coop, Joan's homemade bread....breakfast doesn't get any better! Nearby Wiscasset with antiques stores will keep you shopping for days. Joan can recommend any one of many daytrips down peninsulas of Midcoast Maine. The Pemaquid Lighthouse on the Maine quarter, the Maine Botanical Gardens are a must see,....conservation trails, kyaking, even a trip to Freeport for the outlet shopping is enough to keep any and all busy. Rent Sheepscot River Suite at Wabi Sabi Cottage and have exclusive access to Joan's 'girl cave' to enjoy a cup of tea and nap on the bed outside!
