The house is story-book special - you can feel that it has been well loved by generations. The view looks just like in the picture - except that in real-time, you will also see the tide ebb and flow and eagles circling overhead. Charlie was easily accessible when I had questions. Kitchen was equipped for cooking. Beds were comfy.
The host was so wonderful, and allowed us to host my father's memorial service at Timbertide. It was the perfect setting! So beautiful! The house is older, but lovely, with two large bedrooms and large bathroom upstairs, and two large bedrooms plus bath downstairs. The kitchen is huge and very well stocked for cooking. A lovely window seat with fireplace, overlooking the view of the cove. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space for hosting a party. We loved the large deck and picnic tables! There is a huge lawn and lots of areas to explore outside (berry patch, creek, woods, beach) and there is a stairway down to a raised dock and trail to the beach (my son spent hours beach combing and found lots of critters and fun shells, and huge oyster shells. Also, the raised dock fit 40-50 people somewhat tightly....we toasted and said final goodbyes to my dad there and almost everyone fit) there was also lovely touches added everywhere....shells, a spectacular ships bell (it was ring constantly by the kids), a few games and books, charts (map)...fun little touches. We had such a wonderful time! Plenty of room to house a lot of people! Everybody there commented on what a beautiful location, house and view it was. We could not have had a better experience! My entire family highly recommends Timbertide!
