60th Birthday Celebration
We highly recommend this property. The home and grounds are exquisite. We thought the house was on a cul-de-sac with three other homes. We found it is at the end of a long private wooded drive, on a circular driveway, on three acres of land. The grounds are expertly landscaped and immaculately manicured. There are gardens everywhere. The back drop is beautiful woods with a tall canopy of trees. Upon approach, it is impressive in every way.
You enter into a grand, warm entry hall and view in front of you an open layout of dinning room, living room, with a magnificent fireplace and a full wall of windows leading out to two patios and the spectacular gardens. There is artwork, fresh flowers, antiques and beautiful furniture everywhere. The kitchen, where we spent much of our time, and magnificent library open into the great room. All the sleeping accommodations are superb, including the guest house. The master bath, shower and jacuzzi tub are fantastic. Although the online photos show some of the tray and coffered ceilings, there are more and the ceiling heights are dramatic. The covered outside patio is like an outside room, with beautiful wicker furniture, cushions, colorful pillows and lap blankets. We sent a lot of time there and on the couches in the living room. The natural lighting in this home changes throughout the day and evening and creates a beautiful ambiance, at any time.
In addition the night lighting is phenomenal. There are many light switches with dimmers, in every room, highlighting paintings, the fire place, entries, tables etc. At night you can create many environments. We loved the architectural structure of this house and the amazing interior design.
The owner, Holly, gave us directions for buying lobsters, a meat market and grocery store, about 1/2 mile away. All were excellent and easy to access. The town is 3 miles away, as is the spectacular Ogonquit Beach. You can ride boogie boards down the river to the ocean at low tide. It is my favorite beach, anywhere.
The last thing I want to say is how accommodating Holly was. She left a birthday card, bottle of wine and glasses for my husband and made every effort to make our stay excellent. We cannot recommend this property highly enough. We hope to rent again in the future.
