The Keyhole is a summer cabin built in part by the Foresman Family
on land that has been in our family for over 50 years.
Here are some pictures that show it's rustic charm.
The first stage of construction was completed
by the Foresmans with help from friends and family the summer
provided the design.

In it's current configuration, it's much more roomy with
2 sections added on by professional carpenters.
The Keyhole has three
bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, one with a twin and full size bed, and a smaller bedroom
with a single bed. An additional roll-away bed is available as well as the sofabed in the living room.
A kitchenette has dishes, pots and pans as well as house keeping supplies. The living/dining area is adjacent to the deck. There is a full bath with shower.
Sheets, towels and blankets are provided. All rooms have baseboard
electric heat with individual thermostat control.
To keep our rates reasonable
we simply ask that guests leave the place as clean as they find it, and make up the
beds with fresh sheets from the linen closet before they leave. Linens will be picked up by a cleaning
cabin is called the Keyhole, because of it's view of the ocean,
laboriously cut through the evergreens.
