The Gables is a historic cottage built in the mid-late 1800's and has always been family owned. The 2+ acre property is located on a quiet road surrounded by cottages built by our great great grandfather. The Gables comes with its own private beaches, a lawn for yard games, a hammock for naps and a porch overlooking the bay.
We can put you in touch with a local fishermen for fresh lobster or mussels.
