This is a cottage without running water or electricity on a gorgeous secluded cover in Downeast Maine. Our family has owned it for thirty years and the kids grew up in the summers without amenities...a great experience. We have a fully stocked kitchen with gas stove and refrigerator and gas lights, a wood stove for heat, an expandable dining table. There are two bedrooms upstairs with a queen bed in one and a double and single in another, two bedrooms downstairs with a double in one and two bunks in another, and one queen bed in the 'boathouse' which is right on the water. There is a large washroom with a sink and composting toilet as well as a very nice outhouse. There is a large storage shed on the property with a canoe guests can use. We get our water from a spring nearby and/or a short drive to the town well. You can launch a kayak or canoe from the tidal beach in front to have a picnic on a white sandy beach across the cove. At high tide, you can swim in front of the cottage. There is no ambient light at night, making the stars seem close enough to touch. Sit on the deck or lie in the hammock and enjoy the view of the cove, lobster boats and island beyond. There are a few other cottages on the cove but they are set well back from the water. One is not aware of anyone else. There is a wonderful nature walk through the woods and along the coast nearby and many beautiful places to visit nearby. A list and directions are at the cottage. Peace and quiet is what you get at this beautiful spot.
The cottage is approximately two hours from the Bangor airport, one hour from Schoodic Point, part of Acadia National Park and 1 1/2 hours from Bar Harbor. There is cell phone service but no internet service.
