You reach the A-frame cottage down a series of decks and steps from the garage. A perennial garden spills down the yard to the right of the home; a lawn bordered by a stone wall is on the other side, while a peaceful, walled garden curves around the kitchen entry. The colorful gardens rival the river view for beauty.
Enjoy views of the yachts, lobster boats and kayaks traveling up and down the river to the ocean or the old port of Thomaston. An ingenious ramp parallel to the stairs to River Rock makes it easy to launch your kayak.
At the waters edge, there is room to have a beach fire below the high water mark, and the river rock where you can perch a chair and watch the birds and boating activity.
In a private location at the end of a dead-end road, this property is a perfect romantic retreat for a couple or a small family to relax and get away from it all. Art lovers might especially enjoy being in the heart of Wyeth Country; the iconic New England house where Andrew Wyeth painted his haunting Christina's World is just five miles down the road, and the Farnsworth Museum in nearby Rockland has a building devoted to his and his family's works. Legendary Fales Store, with local produce and homemade soups is only a mile away, and intriguing restaurants are plentiful in Thomaston and Rockland.
