Property description

There is no option available in the web design to adequately describe our rental. If I had the option, I would describe it as a partial house. It is actually an apartment in the ground-floor level of our home. It is the only unit we have because my husband, Larry, and I live on the second story of the house. Since I use a wheelchair, I rarely go to the shore and my husband works five days per week. Consequently, the vast majority of the time our “little piece of heaven,” (as one guest called it), the gazebo and 200 feet of private shore frontage is entirely yours.
Ideally located right on the shore, our rental is fully furnished and ready to be your seaside home away from home. Drive right up to the boardwalk, unpack your bags, and you will have everything you need to sit back, relax, and enjoy spectacular sunsets. Walk just 75 steps to explore the private beach, swim, launch your kayak, watch for bald eagles, ospreys, loons, seals and dolphins.


Privacy: Experience life on the water in a natural, wooded environment. The lot is natural, secluded and private. You can just barely see our neighbors to the right through the trees, (a retired couple comes intermittently). There is a small log cabin to the left that is used off and on during the summer. It is usually so quiet you can hear the loons, sea gulls, palliated woodpeckers and owls right from your bed when the windows are open. If the breeze is up, you may also hear the lapping of the waves. You definitely hear the waves in the gazebo. If you read the comments on the web page, you will get our guests’ perspective of privacy.
If you are looking for romance, look no further. It is so romantic here that one couple became engaged at the water’s edge!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am originally from Indiana. This area is so amazingly beautiful that I moved over 1200 miles away from home to relish its splendor. Larry, on the other hand, is a true "Downeaster." He grew up lobster fishing with his father and has spent many summers working on the trails in the park. He is a treasure trove of information in that regard, as well as "the best-kept secrets" of the area. He and I are both educators. From the time we received our bachelor degrees, we have spent our entire careers working with and for children. (You could probably guess by our picture that we have one or two years of experience. Just how many, though, remains our secret.) In 1997 my career was cut short by an aggressive form of Multiple Sclerosis. The progression was very fast in the beginning, and my first wheelchair was prescribed before the first year was over. MS is a chronic illness and that's why we rarely go to the shore anymore. But if you have to have an illness, I can't think of a more beautiful place to do it! You are more than welcome to come share it with us. We are grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful and amazing people over the years.
