Peace and relaxation

If what you seek is peace and down time this is the vacation for you. If you want for that fresh ocean smell, then look no more. Every night you slip into dusk to the cries of the hunting osprey.
Everyday a lobster boat or two enters the cove a few hours after sunrise and go about their tasks. You can even buy your lobster directly from them. From the cove's bottom into your pot!
Everything you need is on the boat from cooking pans/pots/utensils, glassware, dishes, linen and towels, AM/FM radio with Ipod connection, WX weather radio, and a DVD player for the movies you bring. The “put-put”, your small motorized skiff, connects you to the shore. Food shopping is only 10 miles away in Bath, so there is no need to byo like we did.
Down the road 10 minutes away is the 5 Island lobster shack with fabulous sea food and fresh cooked lobsters. You can buy them to go then take them back to the boat all cooked and ready to eat.
If it is the beach you crave, Reid state park is just down the road from 5 Island.
We did a lot of nothing: sunning on the deck in the zero gravity chairs, midday naps, lobster boat watching, watching the seals and the osprey and even the leaping 3 foot sturgeons. We took the “put-put” out to explore the cove, you might like to use the two on board kayaks to go exploring. If you can handle a sailboat, there is one at the docks for your use.
We stayed a week. We plan to return and perhaps stay longer. We went there stressed, we returned relaxed. What more could you want from a vacation?
Owner's Response: Thanks, Gerry.
I worried that our concept of being self-contained and without additional water and power could be a problem for a week's rental. We were prepared to bring her in for a recharge/refill if necessary. But you were very conservative...there was ample battery and water still available after your seven days. Well done.
And we're in the process of addressing the swim ladder issue. Thanks for pointing that out. But you forgot the beer!
