Hi, I'm Anne!

This cabin has been my "home" since I was 6 mos. old. We summered here every year until I moved here permanently after 1976. After winterizing and making many improvements, my mother lived in the cabin year round after my father's death, and until 6 mos. before she passed away. We truly loved our quiet cabin on the pond. Mom wrote her poetry and painted her watercolor pictures here, inspired by the beauty of nature in the surrounding woods & the pond.

I have continued to make renovations and have added features like a a propane fireplace, a dock & a screenhouse to the property for added comfort for guests.

I would like to share this special place with people who desire to get a glimpse of life as it should be, here in rural coastal Maine, surrounded by small fishing villages, away from the hustle & bustle of city life.

I live a 1/2 mile from the cabin and am available by phone at any time for questions or assistance.

Here is my property:

“ Excellent ”

Living in Anne Osborne's rental home is an excellent alternative to the motels and B&Bs we have used during previous visits to the northeastern coast of Maine. Tugwassa was formerly her own family's cottage and it still has the feel of a nicely lived in home, comfortable beds, a kitchen with modern appliances and dinnerware, an iron stove to take off the morning chill, bookshelves filled with volumes about local lore and the world beyond, and views of the pond from nearly every window. The pond itself is home to fish, birds, the occasional bald eagle, and a moose that clambered along the shore in full view from the living room. Since there is only a scattering of homes around this large pond, we quickly felt it was our pond where we paddled kayaks all by ourselves. A short drive away is Winter Harbor with a grocery store, a Five and Dime hardware, delicious ice cream across the street, and catch-of-the-day seafood at Fisherman's Inn. A private boat tour from Winter Harbor with Cap'n Wesley Shaw opens out the mountains and forests of Acadia National Park. Just beyond Winter Harbor on Route 186 is the entrance to the less frequently visited section of Acadia called Schoodic Penninsula where you can walk over granite ledges and face up to the Atlantic. Then take Rt. 186 beyond to Corea's iconic harbor and eat the freshest lobster roll on a lobsterman's narrow wharf. A longer drive to Mount Desert Island offers the larger expanse of the National Park where you can swim in the warmish water at Sand Beach, tour the park road along the shoreline, and hike the Rockefeller carriage roads. All very worth while despite the congestion. Returning to Tugwassa made us grateful for living there as though it was, for a while, a home of our own.
