Searsport cottage description

We are nearly booked for summer- 4 of July week is still available and one other week in July. We still have great Fall weeks or May/early June at good prices.

TO SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS OF WILD ROSE COTTAGE, PLEASE BE SURE TO CLICK THE LINK LOWER DOWN ON THIS WEB PAGE!!!

If you would like to see a short video of the town of Belfast, go to youtube and search Belfast, Maine. The video named Belfast, Maine has lovely images of the town.

Words cannot adequately describe the feeling you will have when you reach this destination. Please scroll down to the end of this web page for the link for more pictures. If privacy and natural beauty are what you are looking for, look no further. Spend the day on the deck, relax in the hammock overlooking the ocean, or explore the beach while watching the ships sail by. Watch the lobster boats making their rounds, and the seagulls and loons circling overhead. Hike Mt. Battie in nearby Camden for amazing views, experience the quaint shops, antique and art galleries and unique restaurants in Searsport, Belfast and Camden or explore the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland (visit nearby Owls Head Transportation Museum and stop in for fried clams at the Dip Net in Port Clyde). Take a day trip to Acadia National Park where you can hike Cadillac Mountain, take a carriage ride, eat popovers at the Jordan Pond House, or hike along the coast at Sand Beach for dramatic cliffside views. Hop on a boat in Belfast Harbor and head over to Castine to explore an old Maine harbor town. Take your car on the ferry to Isleboro and have a picnic on a beautiful summer island. Visit the new Penobscot Bay Bridge in Bucksport, only three like it in the United States (go up to the observatory if you're truly brave). In the evening, feast on lobster at home or at nearby Young's Lobster Pound, take a stroll through the galleries of Belfast on the Friday night tour, have a romantic dinner at one of the many beautiful Inns in the area or just curl up by the fire, or chill out on the deck under a canopy of stars.

Wild Rose is a unique, oceanfront cottage, located on a private acre, fashioned after the home of famous Swedish artist Carl Larsson. 'Here I experienced that unspeakably sweet feeling of seclusion from the clamor and noise of the world.' That is how the artist Carl Larsson described his home in Sweden and what inspired the builders of Wild Rose. The location is first-rate; Wild Rose is in the heart of the beautiful mid-coast of Maine.

A winding lane leads to the house, which sits on one acre overlooking a luxurious green lawn and 140 feet of pristine beachfront. The front door opens into an entry hall with a view, as the windows opposite the door overlook a small patio, the lawn, and the ocean beyond. When you walk in, your senses will be delighted at every turn. The first thing to meet your eyes upon entering is the view of the Penobscot Bay, from the wall of windows in every room of the cottage. To the left is the living room that has a cozy feel, with a beautiful gas fireplace, comfortable couches and a flat screen TV. Off of the living room is the master bedroom, with an amazing canopied bed that will leave you feeling like a king or queen in his or her castle. There is a private bath in the master suite.

Wild Rose has an adorable kitchen with a built-in banquette, perfect for meals or playing games, which are included in the cottage. Off of the kitchen is a guest bedroom with two twin beds and a private bath. The house also contains a large loft bedroom with a queen size bed and the best views in the cottage. Great outdoor spaces, including a breezeway, deck and large grassy area, lead to the ocean. The cottage has steps to the beach for walks and hunts for treasures of the sea. An added bonus is the Moose Point State Park located directly next to the cottage. Access is available from the beach; there is a beautiful trail running alongside the ocean and through the woods that is great for morning exercise.

Because the house is down a lane, and because it is laid out so the bedroom suites are at opposite ends of the house, it has that 'unspeakable sweet feeling of seclusion' Larsson so valued. And because the many windows on both wings of the house look down the grassy slope to the water, those inside can savor the ocean at every turn. The views are southerly to Castine and Isleboro.

Off the back, a deck spans both wings of the house, and the patio sheltered between them is warm and protected even in winter. Inside, in the peak of the house over the patio, is a delightful sleeping loft with a rail, gate, and hand-crafted ship's ladder.

Wild Rose is a rare find - a glorious year round house on the coast of Maine. It is located 5 minutes from the town of Searsport, wherein you will find a quaint little town center, a maritime musuem, restaurants, a family owned food market and great antique shops. Ten minutes south is the town of Belfast, a sizable town with an historical downtown center filled with lovely shops, very good restaurants, numerous art galleries, an old-fashioned movie theater and playhouse, coffee houses, and even a great martini/wine bar overlooking the harbor. Within Belfast you can experience Thursday night dancing in the streets, the Friday morning Farmer's Market and Gallery Night every Friday night. Heading south a few more minutes you will reach Linconville Beach, then Camden. Acadia National Park is a one hour drive to the north. Bangor Airport is about 45 minutes from the cottage.

If you are looking for a place that offers serenity, privacy, charm and a great location, then Wild Rose Cottage is the place for you. New delicious restaurants include Delvinos and The Lost Kitchen

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: I live in Miami with my husband and two teenage sons. I love escaping the summer heat for the cool Maine days. We love to travel and explore new areas and use the cottage in June at this time.

                          Why the Owner Chose Searsport:
                          My family and I visited the Mid-Coast of Maine and fell in love with the area. We were impressed by the natural beauty and variety of activities available. On any given day you can hike, bike, visit antique shops, go boating, eat at delicious restaurants, visit museums or shop in quaint stores in the many surrounding towns. Not to miss: a full day at Acadia National Park, only an hour drive at most.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          At Wild Rose you will feel secluded from the world, yet be within five or ten minutes of a thriving town with many good restaurants and shops. Our location is directly next to a wonderful state park, Moose Point. This is a great bonus as you can reach the park by beach in five minutes and have access to a wonderful, flat trail for daily exercise.
