'Fairview Cottage,' a newly renovated 800 square foot classic beachfront cottage, is the perfect escape from everyday life!
Offering panoramic water views & direct beach access, this property is the ideal location for a summer get-away with friends and family, or a romantic couples retreat.

This 375 square foot deck is great for sun bathing, reading and relaxing on the lounge furniture and for evening dining and cocktails!
The sprawling beachfront offers an abundance of sea glass and beautiful shells to add to your collection. Being so close to the water's edge, you can truly enjoy the wild life on the river. You will frequently see ducks, herons and the occasional swan!

About Owner / Property Manager
Having both grown up spending summers on the water in New England, my husband and I shared the dream of one day living on the beach.... That way we would NEVER have to leave!
In 2011, shortly after we were married, we fell in love with this property. Built in the 1940’s, this summer cottage was previously owned by a family who spent every summer here together. When we purchased the property, the family shared great stories and memories that were created here, and we were truly inspired to make this a special place of our own.
My husband owns and operates a boutique architectural firm specializing in the design of coastal New England homes. We agreed when renovating, to keep the coastal cottage charm alive, yet we wanted to update the space with the modern day amenities that make life a bit more comfortable. These included vaulted ceilings to make the space feel larger, a flat-screen TV, internet and cable, heat, air-conditioning, stainless steel appliances and a large deck overlooking the water. We wanted it to feel casual and relaxed but bright and sophisticated. A space that while amazing as a summer cottage would be enjoyable all year round. A home where our family, and other families could retreat for rest, relaxation and fun!
