Beautiful, Serene, Simple

This is a beautifully imagined little cabin, the simplicity of which and beauty with which it is implemented, make it thoroughly charming. The windows are the focal point letting all the beauty of the outdoors environment--water, sky, woods--flow in and through the house too. The house sits alone with no visible neighbors on a hillside, though there is one quite close. All the big windows look out to St. Mary's Bay. We rarely have been in a place so relaxing and soothing. We were welcomed with a few simple supplies in a basket and the table set beautifully for two. Roses from the delightful rock gardens adorned the table and bedroom. Yes, the rock garden was at its peak in July with pinks, purples, and yellows blooming. The furnishings of the cabin fit it perfectly and add immensely to the comfort and serenity though we sat outside on the little patio in the Adirondack chairs most of the day. We could not have been more pleased. The house is set back from the road, so that the only sounds are the birds, bugs, and occasional lobster boat during the day. A wild little path through woods and tall grasses leads down to the rocky beach, with a hand hewn log staircase/ladder leading the last 20 feet down. I found a good bit of sea glass there and at the adjacent beach. We hardly wanted to leave there, but a trip in the car took us to Sandy Cove on one side and up to Digby on the other. Though we were only two, there is a second charming bedroom with a double bed as well. We could have stayed a month here, if time had allowed.
