About the neighbourhood
Rose Cottage is just an 8 minute walk from the ferry. You will be walking through the historic downtown and passing a handful of Victorian Structures. Views of the Harbor, the fishing boats and the village afford many spectacular photo shoots. The Rose Ell is located in town within walking distance to Land Trust areas, oceanfront, harbors, Library, shops, Historical Society and more. Since this apartment is located in town you have the benefit of walking to the shops, Library, Historical Society, oceanfront, Land Trust areas and harbors. However,sometimes neighbors might have get-togethers , children might be playing nearby or the Ferry horn can be heard when arriving at its docking.
Getting around
Bicycles are available to rent down in the village which is a short walk away and also Kayaks at the Tidewater Motel. A manual drive pickup is available at $65.00 a day plus gasoline. The necessary driving license and insurance documentation will need to be provided before you reserve the truck. Otherwise most everything is located a short walk away unless you want to explore or go across to North Haven. Then a vehicle will be needed.
