While we have 3 hookup sites, only 2 are available at the present time. One of them, Site 4-A, is being rented out on a permanent basis at the present time

WIFI is now provided as a free service for all rental guests.

Sites 4-B and 4-C are located near the back of our property - on the left near the boat ramp and harbor area. Each site will accommodate an RV (or truck camper) approximately 10-12 feet wide and about 30 feet long (maximum). We "hope" that slide-outs will have adequate space. All sites have 30 amp electric hookup and water. Sites 4-B and 4-C (those currently available) must use "dump" - located near unit 5 towards the front of our property. This would be on your left when you leave. There is a small public restroom near these two sites. We plan to re-do the outdoor shower that we used to have (it was damaged by a hurricane a few years ago). Sorry, but there is no handicapped access at the restroom or shower area.




Site 4-B and Site 4-C - $20 and $30 / night depending on size (length, slide-outs, etc.) of Rv/Camper.

Site 4-B is more shaded than Site 4-C. Both sites have a view of Westmouth Bay, shown below.

Prefer that bookings be between Thursday and Sunday nights (4 nights maximum)
(no week-day bookings)

The boat ramp and overnight docking (with fish cleaning station - see photo below), and boat wash-down area is available at extra charge for those who wish to bring a small boat, kayak, etc. Boat and trailer storage is available at a weekly rate on the adjacent property

While bringing a small chest-type freezer is allowed in the units at 287 Bayview, there may be an extra charge (if the stay is several days) to cover accelerated electrical cost. Also, management cannot guarantee that an outside receptacle will handle this extra electrical load. Should a circuit breaker be tripped, you could lose some of the contents if the chest is not monitored each you do this at your own risk. If this extra electrical load should cause any problems "within" the rental unit itself, the freezer would have to possibly be unplugged.



View from fish cleaning station



Use of ramp, fish station, boat slip - extra (determined by size of boat, frequency of launching).

There is no LP gas available on premises, but it can be purchased at nearby grocery store (l/2 mile).

There are currently no laundry facilities on premises (though possibility in future), but there is a laundromat 3/4 mile away.

While there is no security personnel or cameras near the site area, there is a streetlight there. Owners, who live on premises, add some measure of security.

Boat launch area

Bull Pen - where guests and boat slip customers hang out on days when they cannot boat



AGE -There is no AGE restriction for adults. We request that children be at least 10 years old and/or able to swim and that they be monitored by an adult when outside - especially around the nearby dock/ramp area since the harbor bottom is silty mud and you could go to your knees or above if you fell in.

PETS - While pets are permitted, we ask that you keep them on a leash when outside and that you keep them "inside" at night to prevent any barking that would keep your neighbors awake.

We ask that you clean up your pet's droppings in the yard upon departure order that guests coming in later on will have a fresh yard area to enjoy. Thank you.

NOTE: Phone and Fax are available in the OFFICE using your Calling Card, or Collect. You may receive personal phone calls in the office before 9:30 in the evening. We cannot be responsible for receiving daily routine calls from your office, etc.
