Cottage
We close up the cottage during the winter months. Please inquire about rentals May 1 - Columbus Day. The house is simply but completely furnished and colorfully decorated, for family use, not as a 'rental property.' Virtually everything in the cottage has some sentimental value, having been either handed down from parents and grandparents or repaired, purchased, or brought back from a journey by the current generation of the family… if it didn’t come with the house when our family purchased it in the late 1970’s. The cottage is perfectly suited for a quiet family holiday. It is not appropriate for large groups or noisy parties. Recently the house was re-shingled and insulated from the outside, to preserve the “cottage feel” inside.

The house is simply but completely furnished and colorfully decorated, for family use, not as a 'rental property.' Virtually everything in the cottage has some sentimental value, having been either handed down from parents and grandparents or repaired, purchased, or brought back from a journey by the current generation of the family… if it didn’t come with the house when our family purchased it in the late 1970’s. The cottage is perfectly suited for a quiet family holiday. It is not appropriate for large groups or noisy parties. Recently the house was re-shingled and insulated from the outside, to preserve the “cottage feel” inside. All the windows and screens were replaced and interior walls and trim freshly painted. Floors were sanded and varnished. A new full bath with shower and laundry room were added off the kitchen. The house sits at the end of a quiet road, high above the sea, about 100 yards through the woods from the rocky shore of Josiah’s Cove. Though the cottage is not on the waterfront, from the porch you can see the ocean sparkling. A short steep walk down through what our grown children long ago dubbed 'The Magic Woods' brings you to the back yard of our other cottage. The cottage is open from Memorial Day through Columbus Day. First floor There is a wrap-around porch, perfect for breakfast, cocktails and afternoon reading or napping. The comfortably furnished living room has windows on three sides, a working fireplace and a pass-through to the kitchen. There's a daybed for napping, a table in a corner perfect for Scrabble. To reach the kitchen one passes through a small, formal dining room with built-in china cabinet. To the right of the dining room is a new, large master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a rattan love seat and coffee table, big skylights, pine floors and paneling, and windows all around. It’s beautiful! Awaking to the ocean view is truly special. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, and plenty of china, flat ware, sharp knives, and other tools. There is a new gas range, a refrigerator with freezer, a microwave and a built-in dishwasher. We compost, so there is no dispose-all. The refrigerator, washer and dryer are in a new utility room just around the corner from the kitchen, to the right. To the left beyond the kitchen is a new bathroom with shower. And on the way out to the woods there is wonderfully powerful outdoor shower, closed in up to about six feet but open to the trees and the sky above. Second floor On the second floor there is a small full bath with claw foot tub, but no shower. Off a central hallway there are four bedrooms, two with double beds, two with two twin beds each. All have bureaus and closet space. Keywords: cozy, well-equipped, sleeps 8, ocean view, quiet, outdoor shower, updated kitchen and new bath The cottage is perfectly suited for a quiet family holiday. It is not appropriate for large groups or noisy parties. Comfortable occupancy is 8, please inquire if your party is a bit larger.More

Woody and Comfort’s house is fantastic. One of the best porches around. Eat your lobster dinner outside on the porch looking at the ocean. This home had a super kitchen as well- big enough for4 people to cook together. The master suite is incredible. What...More

The cottage was utterly perfect, and all that a Maine cottage should be...from the outdoor shower, to the fireplace, to the surprisingly comfortable wicker furniture, to the wonderful wrap-around porch with the amazing views! Falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and seeing the...More
