Cushing cottage description

A charming and quiet waterfront cottage in the heart of Wyeth country awaits you for a romantic getaway. Enjoy fresh Maine blueberry muffins and coffee while watching the sunrise from your private pebbly beach. Relax and unwind in the swing set while watching seals and osprey fishing. Observe the lobstermen ply their trade as they fish in Broad Cove. Kayaks are available for rental nearby. A short drive from numerous Mid - Coast attractions. Guest comments include: ''The cottage is an oasis, timeless and precious. ' 'A quiet, cozy refuge, perfect for relaxing and exploring. ' ''Thank you for providing the ideal haven to rest, refresh, and rejuvenate.' 'You truly have a little piece of heaven here. We could not have asked for a more relaxing week. '

Spectacular Beauty: If you are looking for the authentic Maine experience, this area has it. The Rockland-Thomaston area is the entry point to Penobscot Bay, perhaps the most scenic body of water on the eastern seaboard. Here you'll find scores of islands, a dozen historic lighthouses, and quiet little harbors filled with working lobster boats. Ospreys and bald eagles nest high in the spruces along the rugged shores, Puffins make the islands their homes, deer browse the open fields, moose forage the wetlands, and harbor seals make their annual pilgrimage to quiet coves.
