About the Property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

The Webster Cottage on Quarry Hill has been a beloved destination for 3 generations. Its peaceful, private setting at the end of a small road, coupled with a spectacular view of Muscongus Sound make it a wonderful place to relax and enjoy life. Its spacious kitchen and living room provide a cosy and comfortable gathering place for family and friends. There are books, games, puzzles, and cards aplenty, as well as kitchen supplies to accommodate large parties and dinners.
The cottage's most delightful feature is its granite terrace which looks out over the Sound. Many people have spent their entire stay sitting on deck chairs, watching the lobstermen and the sailboats go by.
The house sits on a very large piece of land stretching down to the water's edge and about 500 feet across. Plenty of areas to explore, the occasional rabbit or deer sighting, and tide pools and rock clambering down by the water. At the front of the house is a lawn where kids can play - there's room for a small croquet game, badminton or sprinkler.
The cottage is within walking distance of 'downtown' Round Pond, where one can shop at the quaint Granite Hall store, eat at the Anchor Inn, or order a few lobsters from the two lobster companies in the harbor, sit out on the pier and enjoy the view.
As soon as you pull up by the house, see the view and smell the air, you know you are in a good place.

Location

Car: Necessary

It's a quiet, somewhat isolated spot up a windy gravel road. Unbelievable view, with a lovely terrace from which to gaze at passing sailboats and lobster boats. Must do's: get lobsters from local fishermen at Round Pond Lobster or Muscongus bay lobster co. Ice cream at Granite Hall Store; Pemaquid Lighthouse; and climbing on rocks by the water.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: The Webster Cottage has been a part of the Webster and Post families' lives since 1959. Currently it is owned by three siblings, of which I am the eldest. I live in Berkeley, CA with my husband and13-yr-old child. Alex, my brother, lives in Windsor, CA and has two teenagers; and my sister, Andrea, lives in Tehachapi, CA and has two young adult kids. We all have many cherished memories of times spent in Round Pond.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I have been coming to Round Pond almost every summer for 50 years; and my son has come every year of his life. It was passed down from a family friend to my grandmother and then to us. I and my siblings find it a relaxing, beautiful place to be. I spend most of my time reading on the terrace. Kids like to explore the surrounding woods and the house itself, play games, climb rocks by the water. A trip to the Granite Hall candy and ice cream counter is required, as is a visit to the Anchor Inn, Pemaquid Lighthouse and Pemaquid Beach Park.
