Bayberry by the Sea – Indian Point – Georgetown, Maine
Built by our grandfather, a veteran who lost an arm to WWII and who wanted to enjoy an ocean view from the dining table, and our grandmother, who loved flowers and hosting guests, this is a cottage of beautiful woods, and elegant, simple design.
Marsden Hartley loved our little cove. How could you not stand on the big white elephant rocks, squint across to Fox Island, shudder back at the crash of waves, and wonder how the sea keeps missing you…
