The owners of A Fairview love having their morning coffee or evening cocktail on the screened porch or on the dock. From there you can watch the waterfowl while the tide ebbs and flows. They are kayakers and love launching right from the house. Guests can also easily launch from nearby Knickerkane Landing if they wish to explore a whole different part of the coastline and Sheepscot River. Whether you rent kayaks locally or bring your own, you will love this kayaker's delight!
Away from city lights, stargazing is unforgettable. This cottage comes with a telescope for your use.
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
Like most salt-water tidal rivers, the aquatic life is bountiful around Barters Island. You will enjoy bird-watching even if that is not your norm! Expect to see egrets, herons, loons, osprey, eagles and more. Also seals, porpoise and otters have been known to frequent the area! Wave the Lobstermen in from your dock and share in the local bounty! Did you say lobster for dinner? Of course, you can get out in the water yourself! Sailing, kayaking, rowing and more are easy to do from your dock. Several local vendors can help outfit you with the boats, guides, etc for a fantastic aquatic adventure leaving daily from your own dock!
THE HOUSE - This cottage is large enough to sleep six but small enough to be cozy for couples, and easy to care for.
Fairview has lots of windows, throw them open and enjoy the incredible Maine light and fresh, salty air! Did we mention the incredible sunset views from the living room, master bedroom, and porch? The look and feel of this cottage are clean and comfortable and has been freshly painted with not even a hint of fussiness!
The main floor entrance lets into the family room with a flat-screen TV and comfortable furnishings. From there you can pass into the open living/dining room with the wall of windows and the incredible views! The updated kitchen and summer dining on the screen porch make it fun to cook in or bring home some famous lobster rolls from the nearby Trevett Country Store. Two bedrooms (one Queen, one with two Twins) and two full baths complete this floor.
From the second floor retreat to the Master Bedroom with a Queen Bed and en-suite bath. Relax curled up with a good book while enjoying the view; wake to the sounds of nature and lobster boats beginning a busy day.
PETS PERMITTED? Yes, pets are allowed.
LINENS & TOWELS INCLUDED? No, linens and towels are not provided for your stay, however, they can be rented through us for $45 per bedroom, or you may bring your own.
