Lexington cottage description

Do you love walking/running the beach for miles, freighter watching, beach combing, star gazing, rock -picking, campfires on the beach, watching the moon and sunrise? Do you want to get away from your cellphone, computer and gaming devices? This property is the place for you! Our beach is sandy, our stars are brilliant, and the moon and sunrise over the water is spectacular! These homes sit 1/4 mile off M-25 on a 1.5 acre wooded lot, safe for children and pets.

This lovely, 5 bedroom year round home is the quintessential cottage complete with a vintage, seasonal ( May-October.), 2 bedroom guest house.

              Notes:

              This is not a party house, it is a beloved family cottage. We don't rent to student groups under 25 years old.

              The guest house is not available in Spring 2014 due to renovations. Linens available upon request for an additional fee. Multi generational family groups, weekend getaways, golf outings, reunions, small weddings, yoga retreats, writing workshops. No R.V., tents or fireworks.

              Personal checks in US Dollars drawn on a US bank are my preferred payment. I can take credit card payments through Pay Pal for the additional 3-4% Pay Pal charges. Half the rent will hold your booking with the balance due by May 1st for summer bookings or 30 days prior.


              Please wait... Travel with confidence

              Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1989

              Why the Owner Chose Lexington:
              We lived in this home for 14 years while the girls were growing up. We rented the guest house to families with young children during the summer so the girls always had playmates! We plan to retire here someday!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Beach walking remains my favorite activity at my lake house. Our beach is very walkable in both directions, I search for sea glass,fossils and rocks! There is no light pollution in this area so the stars are especially bright, star gazing is one of my favorite night-time activities. I love to lie in the hammock, listen to the surf and watch the stars. I often go to the cottage during the full moon, the moon rise over the water is amazing!!! My favorite time of day at the cottage is SUNRISE!!! The gardens at the cottage are nice to enjoy, they bloom all summer long!
