A beach parking permit is loaned to guests. Beach chairs and beach towels can be borrowed, too! Additionally, guests can borrow our kayaks and/or bikes. The kayaks are small, are 8 ft. in length, so they are best suited to river/bay kayaking, not ocean kayaking.
Coffee and tea are provided in the room along with fresh fruit which is always accompanied by home baked goodies! The fridge is stocked with basic breakfast items (english muffins, boiled eggs, oatmeal, juice, butter/jam) for your convenience.
The room is on a second floor and has its own entrance. It offers privacy as it is on the far side of the house.

A cozy outdoor fire is possible in the fall.
Through the fall and winter months, we cordially invite our guests to relax by the fire in our living room along with a complimentary beverage. In December the Christmas tree creates a magical feel. Cross country skiing areas are nearby, the ocean is wonderful in winter. There's great shopping , as always, in Portland/Kittery/Freeport (LL Bean!)
