Welcome to North Star Cottage! Imagine yourself in a cozy storybook cottage with fir floors, shiplap ceilings and lots of custom wood touches. There’s a wonderfully comfortable bed, a well-supplied kitchen, and a wicker loveseat on a covered porch where you can look out into the unique country garden. Or, if you prefer, go and sit your own private garden: there’s sun beside the roses or shade under a big cedar. You’ll be comfortable here. Discover walking trails right from the property, which backs onto a park. It’s easy to get to everywhere on the island from your central location.
The one room cottage and surrounding gardens have been created by a professional carpenter and a passionate gardener. It is sunny, quiet and private. Guests call it, ""a sanctuary." In the summer, you'll appreciate the overhead ceiling fan.
You'll find the kitchen fully equipped with complimentary touches like an assortment of teas and good olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
The linens on the queen bed are luxurious. There’s comfortable seating, a reading light, a stereo, and a library. For those coming for a writing retreat, there’s a typing chair and a custom made desk.
When you want to go for a walk, you don’t even have to take a car! There are a number of trails accessible right from the property. The main house is a hundred feet from the cottage and the owners live on site. They are available to answer questions.
Outside of the cottage, on the porch, is a Weber gas barbeque. On the other side is a comfy wicker loveseat. There’s a private outdoor seating area with glass-topped table and chairs.
The property is fenced so it is safe for a quiet, friendly dog.
It takes two minutes to drive to the ocean at Medicine Beach, to the swimming area at Magic Lake, or the Slow Coast Cafe above Medicine Beach. It's five minutes drive to the Driftwood Center to buy groceries, fifteen minutes to the ferry, the library, the Nu-to-You thrift store, or Philly's Diner at Hope Bay.
We are eco-friendly, with a small footprint on a large lot. The property has a pond and a wetland. Plantings have been designed by a landscape architect. Many are bird and butterfly friendly, and fragrant. We use micro-irrigation and water-saving fixtures.
