About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)
The cottage is completely furnished with linens, cooking utensils, charcoal grill, lobster cooker, telephone, satellite tv, dvd player, and croquet set and picnic table. Prestocking of the refrigerator and pantry is available upon request. See details on the cottage website. Please, no pets in this non-smoking cottage. A woodstove or the monitor heater warms the cottage on those crisp mornings or evenings while brisk breezes off the water cool the heat of the day. As guests relax in the hammock and listen to the waves beat against the shore, they can scan the water to see a seal swim by or watch lobstermen haul their traps.
Cushing is a quiet, rural, residential town that has a thriving art community and is at the heart of Wyeth country. Made famous by Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World painting, the Olson House is just a half mile down the road from our cottage. Only 20 minutes away is Rockland where visitors can shop and enjoy many fine restaurants, play golf, or hop a ferry to one of the islands.
The Lobster Capital of the World, Rockland has been designated a National Historic District as well. Rockland is home to the world-class Farnsworth Art Museum and Wyeth Center, the Maine Lighthouse Museum, and the Coastal Children's Museum. Also nearby is the not-to-be-missed Owl's Head Transportation Museum. While in Rockland enjoy a walk along the breakwater to the lighthouse, a wonderful way to work up an appetite and to view the windjammers, the island ferries, or the beautiful harbor.
Enjoy all the best that Maine offers by vacationing in the midcoast. You'll see that we are active owners who take pride in sharing our vacation home with others and work hard to provide a clean, comfortable cottage with everything you need for a wonderful stay. We believe you will love it here and want to return time and again.

About the owner: In the 1930s, Julia Vinal Watts and her husband Silas built this cottage, located on what is now named Vinal Point Lane. At the end of the road, the family's first cottage was built in the late 1800s by her grandfather and his brothers to serve as a bunkhouse for the men who cut ice at the small pond tucked into the woods. When Julia was unable to care for or stay at her beloved cottage, her nephew Josef Vinal became the owner and caretaker of the property. Josef then had two cottages to maintain and enjoy with his family, cottage number one which had been passed down through the generations and Julia’s cottage, now known as Cushing Cottage. Today the cottages are painted, cleaned, repaired, updated, enjoyed, and cherished by the families of Josef’s children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. We are now in the 6th generation of our family that has spent summers growing up here. Since the late 1960s we have rented Cushing Cottage to others allowing them to also experience this lovely location. We take our responsibility for the cottages seriously as we work hard to provide our guests with a great spot for a memorable vacation. A warm welcome from the Vinal clan awaits our guests.
