If you are looking for a relaxing and memorable vacation away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life; a vacation where you can reconnect with family or friends, or enjoy peaceful solitude, then you will find no better vacation spot than the cozy Carriage House, set across the lawn from the soft white sand of secluded Sandy River Beach; where the forest meets the sea, and nature abounds. You will enjoy magnificent ocean views and comfy accommodations. Our woodland, marsh, and beach offer discovery of a variety wildlife, including the occasional moose, deer, eagle, harbor seal or porpoise. Stroll the ½ mile sandy beach collecting sea glass and other treasures washed in by the gentling rolling waves. Explore tide-pools, the rockweed covered granite ledges, and the streams of our salt water estuary, to discover a variety of tidal treasures. At low tide, hike across the sand bar to explore a nearby island. Or just relax on the beach, watching the lobster boats travel the bay hauling their daily catch, and the sailboats off in the distance. You can experience breathtaking sunrises, the spectacular glow of the moon as it rises over the ocean, and wonderfully starry, starry nights. Be lulled to sleep by the rolling ocean waves and evergreens blowing with the night time breeze.
