Early mornings were spent watching the lobsterman float out to his boat for a hard day's work, combing the beach at low tide for sea glass or watching the seagulls grab the lobster shells, from dinner the night before, that we'd tossed on the rocky beach. During the day, we drove to many different locations to visit seaside fishing villages or Schoodic Point. Evenings were spent dining on the deck with a lobster dinner from a local lobster pound (Tracey's Seafood) or enjoying a meal at a wonderful restaurant - our favorite was Crocker House Country Inn which is literally around the corner from the cottage. While we felt we were miles away from civilization, we also had modern conveniences such as cable and Internet service. The owner and caretaker are both extremely concerning about making our stay comfortable. I would HIGHLY recommend this cottage! Next time, I'll be bringing my husband, kids, dog and a kayak! Enjoy!
