West Bath cottage description

Edgewater is a classic 1920's Maine coast cottage which has been recently updated with new systems and appliances. It has been restored with an eye to retaining its original cottage appeal while meeting today's standards of comfort. It is located 20 feet from the water's edge in a quiet coastal setting. The cottage is on a private half-acre lot, which abuts a small Audubon sanctuary.
The first floor is an open concept design. There is a sitting area with a stereo CD player, a living room with a wood stove, a television with a satellite dish and DVD player and a well-appointed kitchen. There are newly finished hardwood floors, and water views from every area.
On the ocean side of the house, the front door leads to a large screened-in porch. The porch wraps around from the western side of the house (which faces the water) to the southern side, and has over 500 square feet of screened-in outdoor living and dining space. Pets considered on an individual basis.

                  The westward-facing cottage affords spectacular sunset views, and relatively dark evening skies for stargazing. A quick walk from the cottage will lead you to the entrance of the Hamilton Audubon Sanctuary. This is a largely undiscovered nature area, which is maintained by an on-site custodian and has over 50 acres of trails and fields that wander through the property and along the shoreline of the Back Cove. Travel time to Bath is a little under ten minutes, Brunswick a little over ten minutes, Freeport is about 20 minutes away, and Portland is approximately 30 to 35 minutes south. The Bath/Brunswick area of Mid Coast Maine is notable for its extremely varied coastline. Reid State Park and Popham Beach State Park are two of Maine's most outstanding beaches, and are located on nearby Georgetown and Phippsburg Islands. Harpswell, Arrowsic, Orr's, Hermit, and Bailey Islands are all within easy driving distance from the cottage.
