Great place to unwind and unplug. View of cove right out your front door. Sit on the end of the dock and meditate. Cook great meals in the fully outfitted kitchen as you watch the tides come and go. Sip coffee on the deck and take an outdoor shower while watching the birds on the shoreline.

About Susan Myer Riley
I was born and raised in Maine. After 15 years away, living in Germany and Seattle, I returned to enjoy the changing seasons, green forests, open ocean, downeast personalities, and of course my family.
Susan Myer Riley purchased this Cottage in 1988
Why Susan Myer Riley chose Harpswell
I bought 'Spartina' in 1988 as an investment and began making improvements. Spartina is a type of dune grass and it is the title of a book by John Casey. In 2010 my husband and I raised the old 'Spartina' and built a new passive solar cottage that has a nautical nordic look and feel.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is astounding to read renter's comments in the cottage journal. I have been fortunate to attract people who, like us, enjoy this cozy simple spot right on Basin who appreciate unrushed time to watch birds along the changing tides, catch up on their reading, visit nearby places of interest, or simply stay home, cook a good meal and watch the sunset across the cove. In 2009-10 we tore down the original building and designed a new passive solar cottage that is also comfortable and cozy. We have stayed there during all four seasons now and love to watch the change of tides and weather from inside and out.
