Nestled on the banks of the Sheepscot River in Somerville, Maine, the River Cottage overlooks the river with distant views to Long Pond Lake. Canoes and kayaks take the paddler downstream into the 2.5-mile lake; a dock is conveniently located in the river for easy water access. Eagles and Great Blue Herons nest along the river and wildflowers cover the embankments. The surroundings are privately located on multiple acres. The cottage was recently built and ready to be enjoyed. No neighbors can be seen or heard from the cottage, very private.
Centrally located in Midcoast Maine to the cities/towns of Augusta, Belfast, Rockland, Camden, Lincolnville, Boothbay, Damariscotta, and Portland (~1 hour drive), there is shopping, oceanfront activities, restaurants, local art shows, concerts, museums, parks, and hiking within a 20-40 minute drive. Hussey's General Store (groceries+) is 10 minutes from the cottage--a local icon.
Year Purchased: 2014
About: I have lived most of my life near or on the water in Maine. There are many special places to visit and spend time, such as on the Sheepscot River where there is rejuvenating quietude and opportunities to be on the water.
Why Somerville, ME, USA:
My sons completed building the River Cottage in 2014 as a legacy home for us and travelers to enjoy a special environment surrounded by engaging nature and quietude. The property is central to the areas of Augusta, Rockland, Belfast, and Camden.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are in love with our home because it is immersed in nature with unique vegetation, a natural setting, and opportunities to spend time in and on the water. Wildlife such as deer, beavers, birds, moose, and other critters may be seen in the neighborhood. Relax on the chairs, porch, lawn, or picnic table!
