SOUTHERN EXPOSURE..One mile south of the lovely village of Damariscotta (charming shops, fine dining and cafes, book store, community movie theatre) is a private road leading into Cottage Point, a quaint little settlement on the saltwater/tidal Damariscotta River evoking neighborhoods of yesteryear. The cottage, barely visible from the winding road, perches high above Huston Cove and overlooks Hog Island, that has been the home to a nesting pair of bald eagles! The garden has plantings of hydrangeas, lilacs, rugosa roses, and rhododendron. Swim or kayak from the private dock. Built in 1941, this cottage is a charmer with comfortable furnishings (new firm mattresses and cotton sheets) and warm pine paneling! It is perfect for a quiet and private relaxing get-away. IThere are fantastic water views from the cottage. The kitchen is well equipped for those who like to cook. An outdoor shower is discretely hidden at the back of the cottage.http://southernexposuredamariscotta.shutterfly.com
'Southern Exposure' is sited on a 1/2 acre lawn perfect for children. There is a wonderful collection of books and games if you're vacationing with the younger set. The Cottage Point community is a quiet safe area for bicycling and walking.
Read the on-line guest book and you will learn why this cottage is so beloved and why everyone wants to return to this waterfront 'slice of heaven!' Although it is a simple cottage, it is not rustic. Just like Reny's, anything you need is there.

Native South Carolinian who LOVES Maine! I live in Charleston, SC..the other most wonderful place to live...other than Maine. Southern Exposure was bought for a retirement spot...but since I can't retire, I live vicariously through others who also love the cottage.
My Realtor called me about Southern Exposure before it hit the market! I bought it 'sight unseen' and still pinch myself for my good forturne. The Pemaquid Peninsular is the best place to be and Damariscotta is a hub of fun shops, restaurants, and art galleries. The best neighbors anywhere!
Location, location, location (very private, yet close to everything)...View, view, view!
