Walk to Somes Sound, (The only fjord in the continental U.S.) the bustling harbor with magnificent sailboats, lobster boats, and ocean activities.

Kick back from a long day of hiking and relax in this 'casual' cottage.
Thatcher cottage is a very relaxed, comfortable place to kick off your deck shoes and put your feet up while sipping an afternoon iced tea or cocktail on the sunny front porch or inside living area. The cottage is almost all original. 'Casual' is the best way to describe our cottage and is a place to be totally carefree. The kitchen has a 1920's feel with the old cast iron sink, light fixtures, cupboards and workspaces.
(We not offer modern appliances)
If you are looking for a very laid back, relaxed atmosphere, then this is your place.
Enjoy the 5 minute walk to town, harbor and Sound and stroll around and enjoy our most unique shops, galleries and friendly people. Several street fairs occur each summer.
We have a fabulous new library with many summer/fall events, which you are welcome to enjoy and just a 5 minute walk from the cottage.
