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.

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: The property is owned by Helen and Merritt Webster. After living in several states including NY, PA and TX Helen retired to her favorite state, Maine. Maine is a place of peace and rugged beauty. One of Helen's passions is cooking. She and Merritt are both avid gardeners.and have created beautiful seaside gardens. on the property. Merritt is a native Mainer with sea-salt in his blood with many generations of sailors and fishermen preceding him. He loves anything to do with the water and also has a passion for woodworking. We both love nature and soak up as much as we can. We love to travel in Maine and beyond. Living next door we are available to meet your needs and to share our extensive knowledge of the area.

                          Why the Owner Chose Cushing:
                          The rocky coast of Maine is a natural wonder. The cottage sits several feet above the water. It provides a stunning view of the cove with it's ragged coastline jutting out in the water framed by evergreens. You can access the pebbly private beach by stairs

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Located at the end of a private dirt road the property is very quiet and peaceful. The cove is a wonderful place to kayak or for more adventure you can paddle to the open sea. Nestled close to the water's edge the view is every changing. The sparkle of the water is magic. Osprey love to fish here along with a wide array of birds including frequent bald eagles. It is a great place to read or just sit and relax.
