THANKFULNESTHere is the Family history of Ocean Point and Thankfulnest: My great grandfather and grandfather built a small cottage near the casino in the early 1900's. My mother and 3 brothers grew up there during the summers from then on. As she married and had 3 children, we spent the month of August with my grandparents. One of her brothers purchased his own cottage on the shore road and my Dad purchased the cottage on Grimes Ave in 1960. Over the years, I have met life long friends from all over the country who keep coming back to Grimes Cove....
After many years of blood, sweat and tears, the cottage was transformed into what we know today as Thankfulnest. We have been so blessed to own property on a quiet dead end street with a view of the ocean and access to the water measured in only hundreds of feet. A cove for swimming and boating is at the end of the street with a boat landing to launch if desired. The salt air smell and the pounding surf can be smelled, heard and felt as the ocean crashed on the rocks at the foot of the street. Many nights are spent on the rocks watching a meteor shower, staring at the stars or being in awe of the full moon's reflection on the ocean. Our grandchildren are playing on the same rocks, caves and swimming in the same tidal pools as my Mom, my siblings and I and my children did. It is a special place for folks of all ages and one that we are most thankful for. We look forward to sharing Thankfulnest with those that have a love for solitude, fresh salt air, the ocean breeze and being surrounded by God's creation. We look forward to your visit. Sincerely, The Alden/Eddings Family.Grime's Cove Avenue is a pine tree lined street on the Eastern most tip of the coastal community of the Ocean Point Colony. The ocean is seen and the salt air smelled from the Ocean facing front windows of the cottage on both levels of the house. The rock-bound coast is 200 yards from the front door, easily accessed and great for walking, exploring, sitting, napping, hiding and seeking. Grimes Cove, a public beach, boat launch and gathering place for vacationers to swim, kayak and read on the rocks and is just a short walk from the cottage. The Shore Road winds along the coast for over a mile allowing one to throw a stone in the ocean at any point. The magical sunsets and gorgeous views make for unlimited 'photo ops'. Thankfulnest evokes a thankfulness for the natural beauty that is the Maine Coast.SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!Walking, birding, kayaking, canoeing and swimming are on the agenda from Thankfulnest. Ocean Point is a beautiful tip of land in East Boothbay, a quaint little cottage community. Photographers the world over come here for the beautiful scenes nature serves up every single day. With views stretching out to the ocean, there are islands, shoals, boats of every size and type as well as aquatic wildlife to watch for! Whales, seals, otters and porpoise along with all kinds of shore birds play hide-and-seek off the shore.Make that morning cup of coffee and sit on the deck enjoying the sounds of the ocean and sight of the sun rising - what a great beginning to the day. Or end the day with family conversation or yard games as you watch the sunset.Head over to The Ocean Point Inn for their famous chowder or lobster rolls, a traditional lobster dinner or just for cocktails. Heading back towards town are several restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries for you to explore.
