New spacious suite with views all around on private beach and ocean
The recently renovated suite is large with a queen bed and a rollaway bed with a regular mattress, (not a cot mattress). There is also a sitting area with a love seat and two chairs, and views of the ocean and beach from large windows to the front and beside the bed. The efficiency kitchen is located to the right of the entrance from the stairs, and beside the sitting area. This side of the room also has a skylight (does not open). The backside of the suite has windows in the bathroom and closet that overlook a tidal marsh and entrance to Cohasset Harbor. There are folding chairs and a folding table in the closet. Most guests like the table near the windows overlooking the beach and ocean. I can put them up for you, or you can keep them in the closet and choose when and where to use them. You can also enjoy my deck just below the suite, which also overlooks the beach - and fabulous sunrises if you wake up early enough!

As an artist, I find the beauty that surrounds Well Rock Cottage inspiring. I've had a long career in the graphic arts, beginning as a package designer for Hasbro Toys, a premium products inventor, a freelance illustrator, a footwear designer and now, a full-time photographer. I have a studio in Well Rock Cottage and even though I'd love to be kayaking and swimming every day, I do have to work and often spend long (but enjoyable) hours in my studio-interrupted by enjoyable walks with my dog Bruce and my camera (for capturing the stunning scenery!)
Owner purchased this house in 1936
Why Owner chose Scituate
This property came in to my family in 1936 when my grandmother purchased Well Rock Cottage, from her cousin. My father inherited this property from his mother when I was 13 years old and we began spending our summers here. In 1978 the infamous Blizzard of '78 hit this town with a vengeance that hasn't been experienced since, and the beach eroded below the footings of our hand dug pilings. Having lost it's support, the old Well Rock Cottage fell in to the waves and was torn apart. My parents loved this spot and decided to rebuild, but due to building codes were required to build a year round home on pilings. My family enjoyed the New Well Rock Cottage. Living on the beach year round was amazing and during the summers, our children swam, and played and flipped rocks looking for crabs. My dad passed away first, and my mom continued to live here, feeding the birds, welcoming her grandchildren to her beach and was in her nineties when she passed away leaving Well Rock Cottage to me. I'm not sure why she made the choice for me have our family beach home, but I'd like to think it was because she always felt that I was happiest here, just as my grandmother used to be.
What makes this house unique
The unique benefits of Well Rock Cottage is that it's directly on the beach and surrounded by stunning rock formations that protect it during our winter storms, and also add a dramatic beauty to every day. Well Rock Cottage is also located in a neighborhood where many of us have known each other's families for generations. it's a unique area, with a friendly, beachy vibe full of people who all love this stretch of sand and ocean.
