Picture this; A rural dirt road leads you through the woods, past cottages dotting the edge of Sebasticook Lake. After a half mile you'll see on your left a line of boulders that set the scene for your entry to Quilt Maker Cottage. This sweet little cottage sits nestled in the trees. A horseshoe drive goes around the perimeter of the level, almost acre, lawn. Perfect for playing Corn-hole, Croquet, Badminton, Horseshoes, or just run with the kids or dog. Yes I did say dog. This cottage is only dog friendly. Sorry, no kitties, reptiles, hedgehogs, or other fancy critters allowed. Contract with owner has stipulations. This cottage is 600 square feet in size, and has been completely remodeled. Open floor plan with full size appliances in the kitchen. The pantry can hold just about anything you want to put in there. Head up the 'pure cottage' stairs to the master bedroom. A wall of windows with white sheer curtains that waft in the breeze is waiting at the top. From the Queen size bed the first thing you see in the morning and last thing you see at night is beautiful Sebasticook Lake, while you listen to the water lapping the shore and the Loons sing their songs. Why does this cottage have 'Quilt Maker' in the title? Because you will see there are handmade quilts everywhere for your warmth and to take you back in time to Grandma's house. There's even a sewing machine if you're in the mood to work on a project.:) Back downstairs is a full bathroom with tub/shower, stack washer/dryer, and a cool porthole window that opens. The living room has a queen sofa sleeper, TV, Bluray DVD player and large selection of movies. Bring your own games and hook them up to the TV. There are board games also. No WIFI as of yet but cellular service is great. Large L shaped, sleeping porch, can sleep 2 more on full size bed that is inside of a Privacy Pop. It's an indoor tent. Also on the porch you will find a dining table for 4, 2 more sofas and 1 chair.
Now the best part! 10 steps and you're in the lake! Boat Dock, 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boards, paddle boat, and a campfire pit for those evenings to tell scary stories. There are two areas for outdoor dining. There is a large platform with dining table, a picnic table and a gas grill for those fun cookouts. There is a hammock, and the sunsets are remarkable!
