It's a warm and cozy feeling when the world outside is quiet and the smell of pine surrounds you. It's a time to recharge and let your mind wander to those nostalgic places of seasons past. High Head, located on the Boothbay peninsula, is the perfect place to do just that. It is a log cabin so named because of its location high above the Sheepscot River on High Head Point in Edgecomb, Maine. The 17 acre property offers peaceful seclusion from the busyness of everyday life. Enjoy a bundled up walk down the winding trail to the private dock on the river. This time of year, you will probably see your breath in the chill of the air. Even so, the walk is pleasing to the senses as the squirrels scurry through the underbrush, the birds call from above, and the salty smell of the sea welcomes your arrival.
Inside the updated log cabin are all the modern amenities that make time away from home delightful. A bright and sunny kitchen is complete with a gas range if your desire is to create some home cooked meals. Pinkham's Seafood is just about 5 miles down the road. It's a nice family run business offering everything that's fresh and in season from lobsters to swordfish, and some homemade chowders too. They're the kind of business that when you call just before they close, you might find them saying, "Well if you're on your way, we''ll wait for you. We have a little cleaning up to do anyway."
Just outside of the kitchen is a living area and dining room with views of the river and a door that leads to a large deck overlooking the water. A gas fireplace makes for a quintessential Maine story especially if you are lucky enough to have the snow falling. Four bedrooms and 3 baths means there is plenty of room for everyone.
When you are ready to venture out, Boothbay Harbor is a short 20 minute drive. From mid November on, the town is lit up for the holiday season. Many of the seasonal shops and restaurants stay open for the Boothbay Festival of Lights which runs from November 17 through December 31, 2017. This is the perfect time to book your stay. From riding the North Pole Express to the 500,000 lights illuminating the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, it's a special place to fill your holidays with magic and memories.
