Sounds of the Sea
The second house on our oceanfront property, ready for occupancy in June, 2017, is Sounds of the Sea, named for its intimacy with the rocky Maine coast. Only seventy-five feet from the high tide mark, the sights, sounds and scents of our spectacular landscape will embrace and stimulate your senses -- and your creativity -- and lull you to sleep at night.
If we are so lucky as to have a storm during the retreat, you can't be more intimate with the wildness of nature than inside Sounds of the Sea.
In addition to three private bedrooms, all with oceanfront views, there is a turret room that brings you even higher to take in the sea in all weather. Here, as in Rising Sun Cottage, you will wake to the most beautiful sunrises imaginable.
Rising Sun Cottage
Rising Sun Cottage is built high on a cliff with stupendous (seriously) view of Frenchman's Bay and the open ocean beyond. Virtually every room looks out on Frenchman's Bay and/or the Gulf of Maine. Ocean breezes waft through the high-ceilinged rooms. And I based each room's colors on my palette of flower garden colors. The air in the house is continually refreshened and filtered. If it's really hot outside, we do have air-conditioning!
We gather for meals in our spacious living room, enjoying each other, the delectable food and the gorgeous ocean views. Or meeting room is equally spacious and overlooks my main wildflower garden and the ocean beyond.
Every chair, every couch, and every bed is most comfortable. I selected each, (from the many I tried!) based first and foremost on their comfort.
Our well water tastes as clean and pure as any you'll ever enjoy... and as such, it makes excellent coffee and tea!
The entrance hall has an eight 18 foot ceiling, semi-circular staircase, balcony overlooking it, views of magnificent rock outcroppings through the windows. This is a wonderful space for meditation.
