CLEARVIEW COTTAGE is designed to take full advantage of the spectacular westerly views of open ocean and Fisherman's Island. Clearview is located just an easy walk along the Shore Road to Grimes Cove Beach for swimming, sunning on the large rocks or just enjoy walking along the ocean. Bring your kayak and launch either from the beach's boat ramp or over near the Ocean Point Inn from the shared Dock/Float. It is a lovely walk along the shore to the Ocean Point Inn for dinner. The sunsets are really beautiful and different every night. The stars shine bright in the night sky on Ocean Point on a clear night. The morning fog helps keep the plants green and lovely. You will often find Ocean Point, Maine at the top of the list for "The Most Scenic Place in Maine". A visit to the East Boothbay General Store will provide their famous breakfast pizzas or pastries. We particularly love the Blueberry Gorgonzola pizza they make. Just a short ride will put you in Boothbay Harbor with its many shops, restaurants and boat trips. The view includes boats: big boats, little boats, motor boats, sail boats, leisure boats and working boats, and during Windjammer Days (a local celebration and tradition) you will have one of the best views of the schooners as they enter Boothbay Harbor under full sail. There are the birds; osprey, cormorants, eider ducks, terns and all manner of migratory and year round aquatic and shore birds. Plus the dolphins and seals that come in close and the whales that pass by farther out. The sunsets are particularly fantastic and if you are lucky enough to be here on the full moon, you will be able to enjoy that magical moonlight's reflection playing on the surface of the ocean. Bring your camera and bring your binoculars –you won't want to miss a minute! THE HOUSE Ocean Point is all about the ocean.
