Step into a FairyTale
A long time dream of mine has been to have a little house on the ocean. This cottage and surroundings could not have been any more perfect !
A cozy comfortable cottage, holding just the right furnishings to sit back and relax. Decor was simple, yet created an atmosphere of surrounding oneself in a warm cozy shawl of colors and whimsy. Kitchen was well stocked with just the necessities for burgers, clam bake or lobster rolls from down the road.
Sleeping was peaceful, and on my usual wake up at 3 am for no reason nights I was lulled back to a calm sleep by gazing at the chandelier of stars through the bedroom window.
The bathroom was roomy, with a funky octagon window to let in the sea-refreshing breeze.
Morning sunlight tickled slowly through the trees, illuminating the beach and treasures from the last tide. Brightness glinted on the water as the lobster boats hauled the days' catch. An afternoon trip around the cove road leads to Pemaquid Fishermans Co-op, with, and I dare to say it, better than Red's Lobster rolls!
Although not the most amicable of clerks, the small grocery store in the center of "town" a short drive from the cottage held all one could need, and more. Down the road the other way brings one to the Lighthouse and the adorable SeaGull Gift Shop and Cafe.
A tour in the area found us on the Ferry to Monhegan Island in the morning, and early evening dining in the most welcoming "feels like home" Dot's Bakery on Rt 32.
The cottage and lawn are well maintained, and although other discoveries beckoned we were drawn to just sit on the deck, toast the sunset and gaze at the distant beacons of safety.
Hummingbirds, dragonflies, wildflowers and pines, a touch of a fairy, woodland mosses, sea breezes and seagulls, secure privacy yet openness, views of distant shores. If you have ever had a heart ache dream of a cottage by the ocean, this place is that dream come true.
