About the Owner
About whitney ott
Both Whitney and I were raised locally and have lived on the property for over 20 years renting originally from the family who's ancestors built the house in the 1800's. We fell in love with the property and when the opportunity to purchase the house was offered to us we knew this house was meant to be our home. We are a family of four raising our two daughters, ages 11 and 14, on the ocean in a small town. Whitney owns and operates a gallery in town and I act as caretaker of the property and work in town as well. We met some wonderful people and made some lasting friendships over the years. Many of our guests return every year. We appreciate everyone who stays with us as it is they who make our life here possible.

Why whitney ott chose Southern Coast of Maine
The farm is a unique property in Ogunquit maintaining its charm and originality. It is set on 3/4 of an acre with a barn and cottages. It has been an Inn or B & B for generations and we have a direct link to its past. We are not a development that sought to place as many dwellings in an area as possible. We are a property that has developed over 150 years and continues to maintain that tie to the past.
What makes this house unique
We offer many of the large items a family requires but are hard to pack such as strollers, pack and plays, booster seats, beach toys and chairs, and coolers as well as a large secluded backyard to explore and relax in. We enjoy the cool evening breeze of the ocean and are situated within earshot of a working harbor where people lobster, tuna fish, offer scenic tours and day sail.Perkins Cove is right out our backyard and within minutes you can find shops ,restaurant and art galleries but best of all in the evening after dinner you can get an ice cream at Billy's and fill a bag with penny candy at the cove candy shop! While this property is removed from the hustle and bustle everything you could want and more is right at your fingertips.
