After your outdoor adventures, you can shower outdoors while enjoying the view of the water. Our cottage is a short drive to 766 acre Reid State Park, with its beautiful beaches and trails (Park Pass provided) and a short walk to Five Islands Wharf where you can eat your lobster and ice cream while enjoying what's been called Maine's prettiest working harbor. Locally, there are many conserved trails for walking and a fresh water pond to swim in.
