The Yellow Cottage is what I call my old fashioned New England cottage with its open stud walls and wrap around porch. This cozy cottage is directly on the water with a semi-private beach of small rocks, many colored and weathered beach glass, lucky rocks and ten foot tides. From the cottage porch or the bedroom's large picture window you can view the rising moon or the local lobster and fishing boats motoring by daily and pleasure sail and motor boats cruising this Mussel Ridge Channel on their way to and from Camden and other ports of call.

Other Activities: Lobster and sail boat rides, kayaking

Golf: Rockland Golf Course, an 18 hole public course, is 8 miles from the cottage.

The Samoset Resort in Rockport has an 18 hole public course and is 9 miles away.
