I had a 140 ft well drilled when I moved here in 2011. The water that comes into the house goes through a particulate matter filter and a water softener. It also passes by a UV light to irradiate all organic matter. I use the water from the well myself and have never had any issues. I’ve provided a Brita jug to the unit upstairs to remove the “water softener” taste. It is up to you whether you want to trust the water … I do.

The PostCard is close to:

Depending on the season, remember to bring:

  • Food for your stay
  • Biodegradable, phosphate-free shampoo and soap
  • Toilet paper and paper towels
  • Beach towels
  • Bug spray and sunscreen
  • Water toys (kayak? paddleboard? Inflatables?)
  • Beach toys for kids
  • Lifejackets if planning to use watercraft
  • Season and weather appropriate clothing
  • Camera and binoculars
  • Cross-country skis
  • Snow shoes
  • Board games and other amusements

Note: The house was built in 1989 as a duplex and retains that structure today. The rental unit is the upper unit of the house shown in the photos. It is HUGE – three ample bedrooms, full bath and kitchen, and a 35 x 17 foot “great room” with tons of lounging space and a fireplace/woodstove.

Renters have a private entrance to their unit as well as a shared entrance which may be preferable in the winter. The two units are entirely separate and private.

The lower unit is owner-occupied. I work from home and my schedule varies, week by week. My work involves a lot of writing. You will barely notice I’m there unless I’m gardening or cutting the lawn.

Please feel free to discuss this, or any aspect of the property, with me at time of booking.
