A possible inspiration for a Thomas Kincaid painting - We think this antique cottage is an exact description of the near-perfect traditional Maine vacation cottage: Great porch - overlooking a beautiful harbor, with walking distance to the village - walking distance to a sandy beach - walking distance to a famous Maine lighthouse. Sunsets in the evenings on the porch can create a lifetime memory of the best of Maine. This cottage has many repeat renters that come back year after year - generation after generation. Beautiful Drift Inn Beach is just 1.3 miles away.
It`s like stepping back in time when you stay at this cottage. While there is internet and a Smart TV with basic cable service for a possible rainy day or catching up on the news, there are no phones (cell phones don't work well here either). There is a truly unobstructed, spectacular view of this working fisherman`s harbor off the covered porch which provides serenity, relaxation and the quiet you have been looking for.
This cottage is rustic and most of the features are antique, but it provides all the necessities to make a stay here easy. The new bathroom in 2014 certainly supports that. Furnishings are quite old and not as comfortable as some seek, although a new comfortable couch was added to the living room for 2016. Staying at this cottage is a step back in time to the way people vacationed in Maine during the early 1900's - but with some modern conveniences. The TV in the cottage is set up to direct to the dining table so one can catch the news of the day - but is not set up for comfortable viewing in the living room. The kitchen was updated in 2011. All new bedding added in 2013. The Owner's added laundry machines and a second bathroom off the kitchen in 2014.
Many ocean views can be enjoyed from this peaceful five-bedroom, 2 bath village location. Watch the sun set on the front porch within close sight of islands and fisherman unloading their catch. Play on the mowed yard between the house and the neighbor.
