Description from manager

Family Getaway, Sleeps 8 with 4 Bedrooms and 1.5 Baths. A treasured family home nestled at the end of Grimes Cove is waiting for you to settle in for a Memorable Maine Vacation! This Ocean Point Cottage is ideal for sunset watchers and communing with nature. Begin your day with the sunrise out on the deck while enjoying the soothing sounds of the nearby ocean. Take a walk down to Grimes Cove for an afternoon at the beach and end the day with quality conversation, seafood dinner or yard games as the sun sets. The cottage and grounds have been lovingly cared for by the owner’s family for generations. The memorabilia found on the walls and shelves are typical of this type of Maine cottage.

 

A FAMILY COTTAGE HISTORY:

"My great-grandfather and grandfather built a small cottage near the casino in the early 1900's. My mother and 3 brothers grew up there during the summers from then on. As she married and had 3 children, we spent the month of August with my grandparents. One of her brothers purchased his own cottage on the Shore Road and my Dad purchased the cottage on Grimes Ave in 1960. Over the years, I have met lifelong friends from all over the country who keep coming back to Grimes Cove. After many years of blood, sweat, and tears, the cottage was transformed into what we know today as Thankfulnest. We have been so blessed to own property on a quiet dead end street with a view of the ocean and access to the water measured in only hundreds of feet. A cove for swimming and boating is at the end of the street with a boat landing to launch if desired. The salt air smell and the pounding surf can be smelled, heard and felt as the ocean crashes on the rocks at the foot of the street. Many nights are spent on the rocks watching a meteor shower, staring at the stars or being in awe of the full moon's reflection on the ocean. Our grandchildren are playing on the same rocks, caves and swimming in the same tidal pools as my Mom, my siblings and I and my children did. It is a special place for folks of all ages and one that we are most thankful for. We look forward to sharing Thankfulnest with those that have a love for solitude, fresh salt air, the ocean breeze and being surrounded by God's creation. We look forward to your visit. Sincerely, The Alden/Eddings Family."
