(Clarification on cancellation policy: We will fully refund your $$ if we can still find a renter and we will try to do so. That's just not one of the options on vrbo.)
This cottage is feet from the water in serene Long Cove on the Damariscotta River. The deck and hot tub face the widest part of the river (which is actually a mile-wide bay off of the ocean) and the famous Maine sunset. The dock and sun-warmed rocks provide access for swimmers. Though otherwise nestled into the trees, the house has a large lawn off to one side for croquet or tossing a ball. The rocks in the river are often covered with seals.
The cottage itself is beautifully restored - all wood inside and out - with an open floor plan and skylights in the kitchen. Pretty much all of the comforts of home are provided, including linens and a fully outfitted kitchen. Wood is stacked for the fireplace all year long.
There are a number of hiking trails nearby. The kayak rental place in town will deliver and/or pick up kayaks. You can rent in town and kayak back to the cottage; put in at Biscay Pond and kayak thru the wetlands to Bristol; or paddle to some nearby islands with public access for hiking, including one with a pair of nesting bald eagles. Or bring your bikes and peddle to Pemaquid Beach or Lighthouse. There’s a big pot in the kitchen if you want to purchase lobsters at the co-op – or they’ll cook ‘em right up for you there. Life is good at 'Marguerite’s Cottage'…
PLEASE let us know if you plan to keep a boat at the dock. It is a shared dock so we need to make sure that everything fits!
