Ross Cottage (1900) is a product of the age of sail, when the people of coastal Maine derived their living primarily from the sea. From 1900 to the present, six generations of Rosses have enjoyed the solitude and natural beauty of their rustic retreat. Now, in the age of ecotourism, the restored cottage offers to others a rare opportunity to experience some of the the seaside lifestyle of a century ago.
