Property description

Located in South Addison, a quiet lobster fishing village, the cottage contains a living/dining area, galley kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a year-round porch leading onto an outside deck with a gas grill. The bathroom/utility room has a shower, sink, and toilet. The downstairs bedroom will have a queen size bed come the spring of 2015 to replace the two twins. The loft has two twin beds. There is a futon on the year-round porch that makes into a bed.
High tide is a good time to explore with the two kayaks provided. Bring your camera for once in a lifetime shots of the local wildlife.
This is a great spot to watch osprey and eagles looking for fish. When the lobsters are shedding their shells, it attracts seals that can be seen in the harbor. Shore birds abound during the spring and fall migration times. October is a prime time to see migrating ducks. Old squaw, teal, black, mallard and eider are most common. There is a 20-45X Bushnell spotting scope on the porch to enhance the views in the harbor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: John grew up in Massachusetts. I, Mary Rose, was raised in Minnesota. We met and married at Glacier National Park in Montana in 1973. In 1975 we moved to Maine.

Why the Owner Chose Addison:
We settled in central Maine in 1975. John's dream though was to be a lobster fisherman so we moved to Addison in 1985. The first time we saw this property we fell in love with the view. We call it our million dollar view! Our first summer there we built our little log home on the shore with the help of our three children. The picture above we took returning from an afternoon enjoying a water outing around Eastern Harbor. Always changing, the views outside our dining and porch windows are better than television!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Downeast Maine is a unique getaway that we always look forward coming home to. Now our nine grandchildren enjoy spending time at our cottage on the shore. We hope our guests find pleasure in the quiet and beauty of the area as much as we do.
