On the Market: A Real-Life L.L. Bean Ad
Hog Island, Rowley
Size: 732 square feet
This antique cottage perched at the mouth of the Rowley River is best suited for three things: fishing, hunting, and taking it easy. Its listing suggests it’s been ripped from the pages of an L.L. Bean catalog, and that’s pretty spot on. Built in 1900, the camp on Hog Island boasts a small dock and 3.5 acres of land.
What the tiny cottage lacks in luxuries (like running water) it makes up for with charm. The place is lighted by oil lanterns and offers a wood and coal stove for when temperatures drop. Though there’s no bathroom, there is a connected outhouse and portable toilet beyond the covered deck. And if you’re worried about lugging furniture there by boat, the camp is being sold furnished. It includes a couch, table, chairs, and four bunk beds.
