COZY, COZY, COZY.......Wabi Sabi Cottage is a B & B.....with only two rooms...this ad highlights The Sheepscot River Suite. Joan, the Innkeeper is a RN & Maine native. She has sold over 17,000 scones at the local Coast of Maine Bookshop. Be sure to visit the cottage website for details and make reservations for afternoon tea or go in to the villages of Damariscotta or Wiscasset in 10 minutes.

Wabi Sabi Cottage offers the Sheepscot River Suite with a huge bathroom (2 antique clawfoot tubs!) and a shower overlooking the Sheepscot River! Home made chocolate chip cookies in your room to greet you upon check in, and a peaceful breakfast overlooking the water each morning. The Innkeeper has several options for breakfast including fresh eggs & homemade sausage, home made raspberry stuffed french toast & bacon or simply homemade granola/yogurt and fresh fruit with warm scone…..Chocolates on your pillow at night. Designed by former resident architect of Colonial Williamsburg in 2010, this home is decorated to take you back in time when every hour of every day was spent on the tasks of daily living.

The Post Office from the Seal Harbor, Maine General Store built in 1865 is built into the library wall. UNIQUE!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Joan Thompson was born in Belfast, Maine. Graduate of University of Southern Maine. Registered Nurse by vocation. Innkeeper by avocation. Daughter Christabelle lives in Palm Beach Gardens Florida with husband and son. Son Nate lives in Kennebunk, Maine with wife. Joan has a 'bakery' on the garden level of the cottage where she makes scones every morning. With a kitchen garden by the front porch and the family garden in the back and a root cellar to fill, she stays busy. She lives in paradise. 'Living in Sheepscot Village is like living in Brigadoon! You know the real world is only 5 miles away but you can pretend to be living in another century when life was about the art of every day living!'

                      Why the Owner Chose Alna:
                      This property is in a historic village and near the ocean….what more could a girl want?

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                      'That was an experience!' is the most heard phrase after staying as an overnight guest, a group lunch reservation, or even Afternoon Tea. A house tour finds you a vast collection of antiques that hark back to 1900's when the art of living took up all energy and time. From the antique cookstove, icebox, pie safes, and sink to the cash register, post office and general store collections.....every corner boasts an era gone by. The chickens in the backyard live in the Coop de Ville! The kitchen garden lining the softly curved brick walk into the cottage and the backyard vegetable garden. Homemade jam, eggs from the coop, Joan's homemade bread....breakfast doesn't get any better! Nearby Wiscasset with antiques stores will keep you shopping for days. Joan can recommend any one of many daytrips down peninsulas of Midcoast Maine. The Pemaquid Lighthouse on the Maine quarter, the Maine Botanical Gardens are a must see,....conservation trails, kyaking, even a trip to Freeport for the outlet shopping is enough to keep any and all busy. Rent Sheepscot River Suite at Wabi Sabi Cottage and have exclusive access to Joan's 'girl cave' to enjoy a cup of tea and nap on the bed outside!
