About The Knotty Dog
Will and Peggy Hicks discovered Bristol 7 years ago when they bought an old sailboat moored in the harbor. They decided to keep the boat here and have since fell in love with the town. After a few years of spending weekends on the boat with their dog Sydney, they decided to buy a house and move here.
They found an old sea captain's house, built in 1799, that needed work. That began a three-year remodel that transformed the old house into The Knotty Dog on the first floor and a loft-style apartment on the second and third floors. The rear deck offers a harbor view and spectacular sunsets!
Will has enjoyed woodworking for more than 25 years. He is an engineer by training and has spent the last 20 years building houses and designing house plans. He started making furniture such as handmade tables for himself, his family and friends 25 years ago and has decided to join a growing number of people who are working to restore the lost art of fine woodworking. We will be adding extra features and products such as nautical bags and fishing rope welcome mats over the next few months, so come back regularly.
