What makes this listing truly unique is its striking proximity to the ocean's edge. In fact, when we bought our home over 20 years ago, we named it "Spindrift" to honor its very location-SPINDRIFT means sea spray! Though the Cottage is part of our home, you have your own private parking space, private entrances, a sunroom which includes tables, chairs, a small refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, eating utensils and a moderately sized bedroom with chairs, table, and modern bathroom.
The cottage consists of your private entrances into both the sunroom, and bedroom. There sunroom has 2 entrances/exits: one overlooking the driveway and the other on the ocean front. The bedroom has, in addition, its own outside door. You may enter the bedroom from the sunroom or from its own outside door. The bedroom may be locked. You are welcome to spend your time at the ocean's edge sitting in the Adirondacks, swinging in the nearby hammock, or enjoying our yard. .
Interaction with guests
The owner will welcome you upon your arrival to give you the 'lay of the land', review the sunroom and bedroom set up, and provide information about nearby beaches and restaurants. We will always be eager to share any information about the Cape Elizabeth and Portland area.
Other things to note
Spindrift is perfectly located for a quintessential Maine trip. The Lobster Shack Restaurant is steps away down Two Lights Road where patrons come from around the world to relish Maine's best lobster rolls. Also at the end of Two Lights Road is a small pebble beach where we enjoy a swim. In the other direction up Two Lights Road you'll find the beautiful Two Lights State Park with walking trails and Crescent Beach State Park and its crescent sandy beach. For an evening out, the city of Portland is just six miles away with countless exquisite restaurants. Ask us for recommendations!
If you decide to stay at Spindrift you may find yourselves spending most of the day simply watching the Atlantic and the hard working Maine lobstermen haul their traps. You never know what will motor, sail, or swim by (yes, we have seen whales breaching off our rocks!). You're forewarned...the view is mesmorizing
