River's Edge
a retreat for the artist, writer, and poet in you

 


Summer day at River's Edge.

River's Edge is a cozy vacation home on the Megunticook River with views of lovely Mt. Battie.  

To your left, up river, is a dam that forms Lake Megunticook.
About 2 miles down river is another dam, the Seabright,

which creates this most peaceful section of river for your enjoyment.

You will find it perfect for swimming, floating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing or sunning on its banks.

It is a rare quiet spot without the power boats, water skiing or jet skis you may like to enjoy on the Lake,
which is accessible just around the corner. 


Lake Megunticook is just beyond the dam.

In your own backyard.

River's Edge has a floating dock, shared with a friendly neighbor, on the river & nearly 500' of shoreline.

Half the property is woodsy & wild.


River's Edge was built in 1970 as a family summer place,
situated on land that was once a pasture serving the farm house
which still stands across the street.
Sheep grazed here, an apple orchard bloomed & a small barn stood near the road.
When the cottage was built,
the old barn's original wide pine siding was used inside the living room. 


The atmosphere is fertile & creative.

The owners of River's Edge love auctions.

River's Edge is roomy, comfortable & relaxing.
Now white-washed, the antique barn board brightens the central living area.
High ceilings throughout make it light & airy.
River's Edge is owned by an artist & maintained by her energetic handy man.

The bathroom has a tub, a shower....


On vacation, there's time for a hot bath.



Your own private spa.

... and plenty of hot water & fluffy towels.
The kitchen is nice & roomy & all set with everything you need
for cooking up a storm,
