The decor is simple, natural, even minimalistic. (How about the birch tree table legs with un-peeled bark!)

Such clean and cozy simplicity…

And when you have to scurry up from the ocean for a trip to the loo, you’ll have easy access…

This beach-side cottage sounds like heaven on earth:

Lobster boats haul traps in front, eagles perch nearby, moose, bobcats and foxes make appearances, and whales pass by most of the year; you will wake up to these views each morning and enjoy them all day.
