Property description

Tucked away on a tranquil and private 1.5 acre property, this beautiful oceanfront retreat, just across the Cousins Island bridge, is a stone's throw to historic Yarmouth Village and minutes to Portland's renowned art scene, restaurants and unique boutiques, Freeport's famous outlet shopping, and plenty of scenic day trips and adventures from Kennebunkport to Camden. Built by an inventor, this home is sure to delight with many clever inventions throughout. The home is filled with original art from Maine artists and artisans many of whom work and study in the premises 'off season'.

Every room overlooks gorgeous Casco Bay. The main floor features an eat-in-kitchen, formal dining room, library/computer room, living room and powder room. The second floor offers two bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with a convertible king), a sitting room and full bathroom. The lower level family room and media center has direct access to the patio, deck and grounds. A wet bar with a wine refrigerator and mini kitchen service the downstairs entertainment area. The grilling patio area is perfect for outside entertaining. A third double bedroom (with twin beds), full bathroom, and separate laundry room completes the lower level.

The secluded setting features a large stone and brick terrace and path leading to a waterside viewing deck and a private deep-water dock. The resident 38' Morris yacht with Captain is available for day charters or sunset cruises. Kick back, relax and enjoy the exquisite views, glorious sunsets--and experience the magic of Maine.

Dear Guests,

Welcome to the Artist Cottage & Studio. Kick back and soak in the scenery, smells and sounds of the shoreline on the cottage dock, deck or patio. Settle into The Studio to create a masterpiece or pen a bestseller. Sunbathe, swim, or make sandcastles at the island’s nearby Sandy Point Beach. Start a puzzle. Take a kayak for a Shoreline paddle or bike to explore the island. Grab your clubs and hop the ferry to neighboring Chebeague Island and play 9 holes of seaside links and have lunch at the Island Inn. Pack a picnic and charter a captain and boat for an afternoon sail on Casco Bay or a casual fishing trip. Enjoy Yarmouth’s eateries and restaurants, antique shops, and historical flavor. Spend a day in Portland’s Old Port district shopping, exploring the Portland Museum of Art and the many area galleries; take a bay tour or charter and then enjoy superb dining in Portland’s foodie heaven. Plan an evening at the Ogunquit playhouse in Kennebunkport or the Maine State Music Theater in Brunswick. Drive the scenic coastal US Route 1 to Boothbay Harbor, and stop at famous Red’s Eats in Wiscasset for a lobster roll en route. A bustling coastal town, you can shop Boothbay’s renowned galleries or stroll the extraordinary Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Grab a cup of chowder on the waterfront before you leave. For a longer excursion, head to the quaint village of Camden for a half-day cruise on a schooner and spectacular views of Penobscot Bay, or, discover it’s treasure trove of locally owned boutiques. On your way back, pop into the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland to browse the collection and Wyeth Center, one of the only two center in the country dedicated to the three generations of Wyeth’s: N.C, Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth. Travel inland and hike a mountain trail, visit the Shaker Village on Sabbathday Lake, or play golf on the oldest course in the United States at the famous Poland Spring Inn. Visit one of the oldest college art collections in the nation at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. Depending on the time of your stay, you might be able to enjoy one of the many gala summer festivals that Maine is known for. Use the cottage’s onsite, tried and tested guides to museums and galleries, restaurants and activities to navigate a perfect Maine vacation.
