About the owner: I am a special Needs Teacher from Boston area. My daughters spent their childhood summers at the cottage. One daughter works for Community Cocepts in Lewiston, ME and has a passion for sailing out of Round Pond.Another daughter works at Boston Medical Center and loves to kayak. I love to garden and walk to the Lighthouse during the summer months to watch sunrise. I love finding Antiques, sitting on the beach for hours or on the rocks watching the waves roll in. I look forward to returning to another season. Time away from the tv affords me the luxury of reading , being outdoors, refinishing furniture, cooking and working in my garden.
Why the Owner Chose Pemaquid Point, Bristol, ME, USA:
Since I was a freshman in college I have been traveling to this location. I came to Maine to visit a friend I grew up with and never wanted to leave. My daughters are grown and continue to come back to experience the delights from their childhoods; swimming, sailing, kayaking. We never ever had a tv and learned quickly that Maine meant time for them to develop their creativity and enjoyment of the outdoors. Reading the night stars, painting flowers in bloom, tending the garden and snorkling are still favorites. Maine affords me time to find treasures at local antique shops or flea markets, watch the sun rise at the Lighthouse, time to make whoppie pies, volunteer at the Fort Gift Shop. Most especially are the quiet rides on the Pemaqud River by Kayak and french fries at Pemaquid Beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Every corner one turns is eye candy. You must come to see it! Just beautiful. Lobster has never been so fresh. Under the canopy of trees the gardens bloom throughout all the seasons. My favorite are the wildflowers that peak out as the last of the snow melts. Mainers enjoy eating the fiddleheads that can be found in early spring . This time of year also brings the peepers who croak during the early evenings (Bullfrogs). So many warblers migrate through that it is hard to distingush them all during the spring.
