Roni & Mario moved from Long Island, NY, to Maine in 2002 when they bought the Squire Tarbox Inn here on Westport Island. They originally came to the US in 1969, Roni from the UK & Mario from Switzerland. Mario worked in NY for Restaurant Assoc. & Roni was a flight att. for 34 years, first for Pan Am & then Delta. They are still running the inn, now with the help of their daughter.
The cottage is on the property of their house which sits up high overlooking the Sheepscot River. It is at the top of the hill on a private road with just 3 other houses. It was a run down extra building & we decided to renovate it a few years ago. So we gutted it out & made it into the cozy place it is today.
The peace & quiet is what is particularly perfect with this property. You can stare at the the amazing night skies as there is no light pollution at all. It is a place to unwind & relax.
