Rothbury cottage description

Pristine white sands. Phenomenal sunsets. Softly rolling sand dunes. This 1200 sq ft family cottage is nestled in the whispering pines and is the perfect spot to unwind, read, walk the uncrowded beach, and swim to your heart's content. From the spacious front deck, relax while enjoying the steady warm breezes and relaxing, soothing sound of waves lapping the shore. After each majestic sunset, enjoy an evening of fires on the beach, marshmallows, stargazing, and the beautifully lit sailboats and ships on the horizon.


Cottage History: My parents James and Elizabeth (their pictures are on the wall in the living room) purchased this property in 1952. The main cottage was built in 1957 along with a separate “bunk house” (the last bedroom of the cottage) that housed my three brothers and myself. In the late 70’s the front cottage and bunk house were connected with an extra bedroom and a breezeway.

Nearby Activities: Close by are several top rated golf courses, quaint villages, restaurants, fishing, horseback riding, sand dune rides, boating, and bicycling the “Hart-Montague” bike trail. Visit the local orchards and farms for seasonal fresh produce.
