This is a cottage and two outbuildings without running water or electricity on a gorgeous secluded cove in Downeast Maine. There is a gas stove, refrigerator and lights and a composting toilet, as well as an outhouse. It is very comfortable. Water is procured from a well which is a short drive from the cottage. Large buckets and milk jugs are provided for storage. Internet service is by cell phone only.
You will feel removed from the bustle of the world at this peaceful spot. Our family has owned it for thirty years and the kids grew up in the summers without amenities....a great experience. Beds: 2 queen, 3 double, 1 single, 2 bunks.There is a large washroom with a sink and a composting toilet as well as a very nice outhouse. We get our water from a town well a short drive from the cottage. You can launch a kayak or canoe from the tidal beach in front to have a picnic on a white sandy beach across the cove. At high tide, you can swim in front of the cottage. There is no ambient light at night, making the stars seem close enough to touch. Sit on the deck or lie in the hammock and enjoy the view of the cove, lobster boats, and islands beyond.
Guests have access to the main cottage and the "boathouse" which has a queen size bed and is practically on the water. There is also a large storage shed on the property and two canoes guests can use. The town well is a short drive down the road. The Woodward Preserve, a scenic hike through moss filled woods and rocky coastline, is two miles down the road from cottage on left.
