Gorgeous and Breathtaking Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night but when we awoke, the scenery was breathtaking. The property is located at the point of land on the Sheepscot River. There is water on three sides of the property which is set up about 40 feet above the river. The view of the river and surrounding trees is spectacular. You can walk down the path to the river and we were immediately surprised by the waterfall on the river. Gorgeous views of the other side of river with houses, boats, bridges, etc. Very New England and just what we were hoping for. The cottage is located in a clearing with lots of river views. The cottage itself is nice, with large, modern kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms and bath. Overall, very cozy with fireplace. Only recommendation would be to add more chairs for outdoor viewing of the scenery.
