Property Description

Tribby Cottage is located in the country town of Jefferson in Midcoast Maine which is 3 hours from Boston and 1 hour from Portland. It is both a private retreat and a place to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends. It is the last cottage on the road and is surrounded by trees and fields. The cottage is nestled into a gentle hill that slopes down to the water's edge which about 100ft from the front door. At the shoreline you will find a small deck with stairs that lead to the small beach, dock and a canoe and kayak. Clary Lake is approximately 6-700 acres and 25 feet deep. It is a quiet lake with bass, perch and pickerel for enjoyable fishing.

Inside the cottage there is a large but cozy pine paneled living space with a wood stove, couch and seating area with a TV and DVD player, upholstered chairs by the picture window, and a dining area. The kitchen offers a stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, large refrigerator, and all the pots, pans and utensils needed to cook a delicious meal. The tiled bathroom has a shower. There are three sleeping areas: the largest provides a queen bed, dresser and large closet, the second has a single bed and dresser, the third is a sleeping loft above the kitchen which is accessible by a built in ladder and has windows that overlook the lake. The loft has a queen sized futon, and is often the kid’s preference.

The front door to the cottage opens onto the deck which has a picnic table and Adirondack chairs and the charcoal grill is adjacent to the deck.

For local provisions there is: the Superette, a small grocery/gas store which also rents dvds, Sheepscot General, a general store and cafe which features organic, local food, and roadside farm stands. Also in the immediate area is Damariscotta Lake State Park, The Scoop ice cream stand, 100 Acre Woods which offers horseback riding, Sheepscot Links which offers a 9 hole golf course and Hidden Valley Nature Center which offers a twenty five mile trail system with many outdoor activities.

Tribby cottage is 20 minutes away from both Augusta and Damariscotta. Augusta, Maine's State Capital, offers all the big box stores, grocery markets, banks, movie theatres, airport, highways and a the nationally recognized Maine State Museum. Damariscotta is a quaint coastal town. The coastal area offers ocean beaches, lighthouses, hiking, boat tours, sea kayaking, galleries, charming shops, antiques, great restaurants and lobster.

We had great weather all week, used the canoe and kayak to... Read More
