These roses under my window make no reference to former roses or to better ones; they for what they are; they exist with God today. There is no time to them. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence. Before a leaf -bud has burst, its whole life acts; in the full- blown flower there is no more, in the leafless root there is no less. Its nature is satisfied and it satisfies nature in all moments alike.
But we postpone or remember. We do not live in the present, but with reverted eye lament the past, or, heedless of the riches that surround us, stand on tiptoe to foresee the future. We cannot be happy or strong until we too live with nature in the present, above time. – Emerson
The Stable was once a small horse stable. The cottage now consists of a large room divided to provide a smaller room that houses a “working man’s” twin bed. During the winter of 2014, a separate cottage (8×10) “Lil Rose” was completed, giving The Stable a very private second bedroom. In the main space there is a Cape kitchen with a 4 burner stove and 1/2 refrigerator, a table for 2 or 3, a queen sized custom platform bed, comfortable couch, stereo TV and DVD player, wi-fi, and lots of windows on the surrounding foliage which includes black pine, olive trees and wild beach plantings. A fireplace was added to the stable, enhancing its off season ambience! The Stable now works well for a maximum of a couple with two children or an occasional guest but should be “family.” There is a Queen size bed, a Full (Lil Rose) and a Twin available for Guests. There is an inside shower room and a bath room in The Stable. An outside terrace features deck chairs, a picnic table, a charcoal grill, and a very private outdoor shower. Although a dune blocks the Stable from having a bay view, you can hear the surf at night and a private path puts you at the top of the dune in less than a minute. The cottage is fully insulated, the interior has been completely finished in 18th century barnboard painted white, and is fully heated. It is comfortable year round.
Sleeps: 5 with 3 in Stable (1 queen + 1 twin), 2 in guest house Lil Rose (1 full)
