Property description

Adorable cottage on stilts with the best Gulf of Mexico views. Sits on a direct gulf access canal. This 1 bedroom, 1 bath, with fully equipped kitchen is the best. Lots of room to stretch out and relax, watch TV, or stay connected through Wii-Fi. You may want to have a small fire in the 70s themed fire place! The outside has an upper deck as well as a lower deck with a fun thatched over tiki table, grill and dock. Will allow house trained dogs with manager approval. Great place to fish ,[there is even a fish cleaning sink on the lower dock} watch the wild life, boat, kayak , canoe or just unwind. Take a walk....a little over two miles round trip....and enjoy Hudson Beach!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: My wife and I are from Maine. We both take care of a small island and lobster full time.

Why Hudson:
This is a great cottage to come and spend sometime relaxing and thawing out after the frigid winter weather in Maine. We also have lots of family and grandkids here in Hudson.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cozy atmosphere in this cottage is remarked upon the most! And watching all the swim life {manatees, mullet, needlefish, sheeps head and more!] from the upper deck provides crystal clear viewing. And then there are all the birds in the marsh across from the canal. Endlessly entertaining.
