Property description

Take a holiday from the hectic workaday world in this classic 1890's cottage located in historic Prouts Neck, Maine. A small secluded community well known in artistic circles as the home of renowned painter Winslow Homer, Prouts abounds in a variety of rustic woodland settings and scenic seascape vistas many of which were the inspiration for Homer’s depictions of late 19th century Americana. Once nestled in, you’ll find it hard to believe you’re just moments away from Portland International Airport and the cosmopolitan city itself with its many unique, sophisticated shops and inviting restaurants.

Prouts Neck is an ideal getaway destination. Its mile and a half of beaches offer unlimited possibilities for long walks, swimming, sailing, and sunbathing. And at day’s end, the gracious, hospitable Black Point Inn [open mid-May through mid-December] awaits you for an early evening cocktail and a hearty Maine Lobster dinner. If your vacation plans call for a different time of year, fall colors in Maine are glorious and winter has its own special, quiet appeal. The newly re-decorated cottage is winterized for your comfort and has wood burning fireplaces in the den/dining room and living room. Whatever the season, you’ll have a spacious, light-filled home base to relax and enjoy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We've been lucky enough to be a part of Prouts Neck since the 1930's- there are many great spots in Maine to visit but Prouts is very special; very tranquil, very safe and so beautiful. Convenient to both Portland to enjoy the area and also if you can fly in or out the airport which is 15 minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose Prouts Neck:
Privacy- great location in the middle of the neck. Two hundred yards to the beach's
