Today, March 8, 2023 we have sold Cozy Cove Cabins. We have loved this life, Jackman, the sunsets, the lake, the people we have met and yes, even all the blood sweat and tears we shed working on the cabins so this truly is bittersweet for us.
For those of you who do not know our story, I’ll be brief. LOL Probably not
We knew we wanted A Cozy Cove Cabin since 1994. Did our first search & ended up in NH. The place we wanted sold just before we got there. SO we stayed in NH, then in 2003, sold our house and started our search once again. We looked at almost 80 properties across NE (NH, VT, M& Me), Michigan, and even Texas!
The funny thing is when we saw Tuckaway shores for sale in Jackman, we thought…what is in Jackman? It is so far from everything this can’t be good. . Then Cozy Cove went on the market, so we made a trip to check the 2 properties on a very blustery day in February.We looked at Tuckaway first then at Cozy Cove. We made the offer almost the next day.
This was the perfect location, size, and condition for what we wanted to do.
The first 8-10 years was really hard work. Every part of each cabin was touched by us inside and out, a few times even, to get them to where we are today. These are old Maine camps; most were brought in from somewhere around Maine and this is what we wanted them to stay. Tearing down and building new is just not who we are. We just had to make them able to tolerate the 4 seasons better and get rid of the 1970 carpets. The surprises we found under shag carpets and behind paneled walls. It has been a learning experience since day one and definitely a labor of love. You can read our journal and see our progress over the years in each cabin. As there are still many things to do here, besides general maintenance, we hope this tradition of sharing continues.
But it is time for us to start the next chapter of our life. There is no plan yet. We will be traveling awhile to see where we want to nest next.
It has been an honor and a joy meeting so many wonderful people. We have appreciated your patronage and a special thank you to those who keep coming back. Some guests have become great friends and some, even if they only stayed with us a few times, have found a place in our hearts too. You will be missed.
We hope Travis & Heidi enjoy you and this new life as much as we have.
This was the last photo we took in the fall with Maggie and Murphy girl is watching on from her happy place. We hope you remember us fondly.
