Couples or families are welcome at this beautifully renovated, immaculate cottage in a little fishing village at the mouth of the New Meadows River. Now air-conditioned! It's only an hour north of Portland and just a short walk to the high tide mark. Wake up to southwesterly views of Casco Bay, breathe in the salt air, and watch the comings and goings of local lobstermen as you adjust to a slower pace. In fact, any one of them would be happy to provide you with dinner fresh from the boat. Although not directly on the ocean, the cottage does have water views. Access is down a short right of way where kayaks, which may be rented nearby and delivered, can be launched from a small pebble beach. Adirondack chairs and a cedar picnic table for guests overlook the water. The beach, with its tide pools, sea glass, and other treasures, is a magnet for children of all ages, and one that will provide hours of entertainment.
A kitchen, dining/living room, sun porch, bedroom with twin beds, and bathroom complete the downstairs. Upstairs are two more bedrooms, each with a full-size bed. A pack 'n play lite (fits under one year old), high chair, and child safety gate are available for families with little ones.
Sunday to Sunday rental during peak summer weeks.
