We have owned our adjacent cottage, Bayberry Ledge(VRBO#399231), since 1979. We have rented that property since 1979 and some of our same renters have returned annually for over 30 years. We purchased Lilac Ledge in 2011 and know it well as it had been in our family since the 1970’s. Feel free to call with any questions you may have.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Lilac Ledge. The sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas Cove and the Atlantic Ocean just outside the front door are invigorating. We felt as though we stepped back in time. This is a very special place.
The house was clean, extremely well stocked with EVERYTHING we needed, and extremely spacious and comfortable. We were concerned about not having air conditioning in August, but we found that we didn't even need it. The skylights and the fans cooled the house more than sufficiently. We even had to close the windows at night to keep the house from cooling off too much.
We had a kayak delivered by Tidal Transit Kayak Company for the week, so we were able to explore Christmas Cove and the Sheepscot River from the water. The scenery in this area must be seen to be believed. The rocky coastline is teeming with wildlife and lined with beach roses, blueberries, tall stands of spruce and tide pools. The attractions of the Boothbay Harbor area are close by, and though tempting, we found that we were perfectly content spending most of our time right at "home". This is a true getaway. No television was provided, nor was it missed.
Thank you again Jon an Janet for your warm hospitality and for sharing your treasured family vacation home with us!
Lilac Ledge couldn't have been more perfect for our family vacation!
The cottage is lovely and the setting is as perfect as it's going to get. The kitchen is fully stocked with every personal touch you could need or want - pots, pans, utensils, dinnerware, glasses, mugs...everything is nice and matching (not sorry leftover we've found in some cottages). Bed linens, blankets, towels, mattresses and pillows are in wonderful condition and high quality.
The view from the master bedroom suite is so amazing that I gasped every morning when I first opened my eyes! Each night we had dinner in front of the view in the living room. Best view in town.
Nice washing machine & dryer, plenty of basic stock in the house (bags, cleaning supplies...)
We LOVED the waterfront! Kids played on the rocks for hours and even went wading in the water. We spent a lot of time on the private boat landing just reading and relaxing. The kids caught lots of lobsters and crabs using a crab trap (we threw them back).
We never had to leave the cottage unless we wanted to. Perfect for reading and relaxing. Lots of comfy chairs on the deck and lawn.
The cottage couldn't have been cleaner. We would absolutely recommend this property to a friend or relative.
Jon & Janet were great to interact with. Thank you!!
