Occupying the entire third-floor dormer of our 1874 Victorian home, which has been owned by our family since it was built, the apartment offers one bedroom with a double bed and a twin in the same room, a full bath with tub/shower combination, full kitchen, and a living room with basic cable television. The apartment is best suited to a couple or a couple with a child.
This house is the main base of Thompson Cottages in New Harbor, a complex of 21 cottages on New Harbor, Back Cove, and the open Atlantic (10 of the cottages are steps from the ocean). See our site for a map and more information.
The home is situated in a lovely neighborhood of fine antique homes, across the road from the lively port of New Harbor, where lobster boats bring in the daily haul. Shaw's Lobster Wharf on the opposite side of the harbor serves up the catch that night--you can eat your lobster on an open deck overlooking the harbor.
Our guests can walk to Back Cove, where we offer rowboats for your use, in about five minutes, and another few minutes' walk takes you to our stunning property on the open Atlantic, where folks can climb the rocks, watch wildlife, including our resident osprey, and mess around in tidepools.
The apartment does not have Wi-Fi, but free Wi-Fi is available at our office, which is on the grounds. Cell phones work spottily in our area, and we can advise you of places where reception is better. We also have a land line for guests' use.
In the barn, attached to the house, we have an extensive library of books, puzzles, and games, and we also have outdoor games for the family to play on the lawn. Children welcome!
