This idyllic cottage on a private road is a few steps away from a trail into the Grand Forest yet the ferry terminal is less than ten minutes away. It is surrounded by majestic cedars and next to a quietly babbling brook on protected wetlands. The main house is further down the driveway.

The space
"It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson 

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in spectacular surroundings. During the day there are many birds to watch or listen to. Owls may hoot at night and sometimes you can hear coyotes howl. It's a perfect setting for a romantic getaway or for a restorative break from a hectic life to reflect and meditate. 

Downstairs there's a bedroom and hallway area with a washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board. Upstairs there's a skylit bathroom, several closets along a short hallway, and a living/dining room area with a sofa bed, a dining area, an easy chair and a kitchenette.

Coffee and teas are available, as well as some condiments and staples. There's a full-size refrigerator/freezer for guest use, a stove/oven, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee machine.

There's a small library of books, as well as an assortment of jigsaw puzzles and games.
