Make Robin House part of your vacation plans from now on! The private wooded setting right on the shoreline is perfect for watching the tide roll in and out. Enjoy sunrise and sunset by winding through a wooded trail to the BIG rock fondly named Allagash!
The views from the house and deck make you wake up every morning and think you are in paradise! The low tides are just as pretty as the high tides! Seeing the sea gulls swoop down, pick up a clam or mussel, then fly high over the big boulders that line the shoreline and drop them to crack them open and then eat them is mesmerizing! We like to follow one bird and see where they pick their clam and then guess which boulder they will fly to, drop and eat! We chose this property over others due to the serene location and ocean views.
Make sure you check out Fine Sand Beach, the Quarry swimming hole and the Carrying Place take out! Goose Pond is about a mile walk…some may want to crest the ridge behind it for the view of the Atlantic and walk down to the ocean beach.
Sunrise or Sunset...
Watch the sunrise from Allagash Rock or go to "Martini Point" and watch the sunset. Bring the binoculars and keep an eye out for dolphins and seals!
