 buggy ride74 Old Blue Rocks Road, Garden Lots

Trot in Time started in 1996, with an old carriage in the owner’s front yard; basically a lawn ornament. One day a local senior suggested a horse be borrowed to take him for a ride in that buggy. After a good measure of work, including a full refit of the 1888-built cart by shipwright Lloyd Lantz, he got his ride.

The name Trot in Time came from a  elementary student contest won by then third grader, Claire Coulter.  Claire got a pizza party with her friends, in thanks for her great idea. The tour with Trot in Time is like stepping back in time complete with a real wooden carriage – a trot in time!

The first horse came from Gregg and Jenny Ernst  who live near Lunenburg.  Jenny had been doing wagon rides with her horse, Cindy, but with ten children it was getting too hard to manage that business. And so Cindy became Trot in Time‘s first steed. She retired in 2000 and laid down for a final rest in 2003. Please visit her beautiful memorial page.

In 2000 the owner of Trot in Time was able to buy a property, and restore the barn and an old Cape house, only 300 feet outside the Lunenburg town limits. From there, as the saying goes, it’s all history: Cindy and he hit the streets for buggy rides the next two years.

In the third year a horse called Bob was purchased. The fourth year a replica carriage was added… By the ninth year it was three carriages! Today they have six horses, four carriages, six drivers, a ranch hand, a wagon house, and an ever expanding pasture.

Oceanfront Building Lot

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Bee’s Cove


How many times do people search for a fish shed that can be converted to a cottage?

Well, here it is!

There’s calculated space for well and septic, in addition to the 2nd wired outbuilding on site.

Did I mention there’s a wharf too?  Once 100 feet long, it would need a finger float to join to the grandfathered tip. Your own pier for a houseboat or party platform, angled to accommodate the current.

Sensational sunsets, due to southwest orientation of buildings. See fabulous area photos on Google Earth    (44 07 48 N, 64 34 38 W)

Lot Size: 29,300 Sq.ft.

Outbuilding: 19′ x 20′

Oceanfront +/- 180 feet

Many nostalgic and recent charms are in this  harbourside community . A reading festival and spontaneous fun make the village ideal for lasting enjoyment. It inspires bike rides or long walks past pretty homes and the commercial waterfront.  Slow winding roads like Medway Street, lead to this deeded lane.

Close to Liverpool and Bridgewater amenities, and not isolated like waterfront building lots can sometimes be, out there on the ocean.


Tell your REALTOR(R) to “fill their boots” as a Caper would say… there’s a key onsite for easy showings.
