Experience the beauty of the bold Maine Coast in the comfort of this handsomely maintained Shingle Style cottage. One of the original homes built in 1890 for the inception of the historic Grindstone Neck summering community. Rambling horizontally with an exterior of gently waved shingles, WICKFORD typifies the early Arts & Crafts Movement in New England.
Privately situated on the Grindstone Neck peninsula of Winter Harbor, this fourteen room family 'pile' is fully appointed with a mixture of antiques and modern amenities.
Enjoy forest walks and a classic Maine set apart from the crush of tourists. Visit the nearby working fishing villages. Hiking trails, cycling, sailing, kayaking abound with Acadia National Park and Schoodic Point practically at your doorstep.
On a rainy day explore the extensive Library and curl up by one of the four fireplaces. The downstairs Sitting Room holds a grand piano and an Italian marble mantelpiece with carved Classical motif.
Each of the six Bedrooms have their own individual charm, capacious closets and queen-size beds. The Master Suite is replete with a king-size Victorian sleighbed, fireplace and private Balcony facing West and South.
The generous Kitchen makes cooking a pleasure; serve an informal meal here or lay out the Dining Room in front of the brick fireplace. Spend your cocktail hours on the expansive Deck under staggering night-skies of Downeast Maine.
As a writer's retreat or family vacation, WICKFORD offers a unique setting for a summer in Maine.
