I grew up spending wonderful summers next door at a cottage my grandparents purchased in 1930. When the place next door came up for sale in 1989, my husband and I became its new owners in order to create a bigger gathering place for our large extended family. It continues in that role today.
Lichen is part of a quiet and friendly neighborhood in an association which owns a beach down the way. The waters off Tuttles Point offer fishing, swimming, kayaking, and its protected nature is wonderful for young children. More ambitious adults can use the dock as embarkation point for paddling all around the Guilford and Madison waters, out to Faulkner's Island Light and the Thimble Islands. Ospreys, herons, gulls and many other shorebirds enjoy the area's protected waters and rich tidal marshes. The neighborhood is great for walking, bicycling, and riding tricycles.
