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.

              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!
