Property description

Come stay at our much loved, light-filled country home in the mid-coast Maine area. Our guests will enjoy a tranquil, relaxed environment for a quiet retreat or an active family vacation within close proximity to Belfast and Camden. This wifi-equipped and updated 1800’s farmhouse, located on over 100 acres of land abutting the St. George River, is surrounded by 13 acres of pastures, woodland trails, and a spring-fed pond.

A short 15-20 minute drive away are all the mid-coast Maine attractions, including the artist’s haven of Belfast, and Camden, the charming “jewel” of the mid-coast. Visitors will have easy access to hiking in Camden Hills and swimming/kayaking/canoeing/fishing in pristine Maine lakes or on the Penobscot Bay. Guests can enjoy day trips to Acadia and Popham beach (approximately 1.5 hours away) or a take a short ferry ride from Lincolnville to Islesboro. It is also fun to set up a tent and sleep under the stars (no light pollution here!), with the bullfrogs and cicadas singing through the night. Searsmont offers the experience of communing with nature, while enjoying convenient access to fine dining, boutique shopping, and antique store browsing!

The main house comfortably sleeps four (one queen and two twins), while the unheated but renovated attached barn comfortably sleeps more guests during warm summer months (there is one king bed and one double bed, so the renovated barn could accomodate 4 people if they share the beds, bringing the total potential guest accommodation to 8). Standard rental rate is based on 4 guests, with $25 per additional guest per night. The house has a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen with a table that seats eight. “Single-level living” gives the cozy house a sense of spaciousness and ease of movement. There are 2 bathrooms--one full and one small, 3/4 bath. Renovated by an accomplished artist and builder, the home has been lovingly maintained for over 30 years, and guests will enjoy some of the unique art of owner Tom Wills. If you are bringing children, let us know! We have a closet full of games and plenty of toys! Dogs are welcome, as we are dog-owners ourselves, but we recommend keeping them leashed at night and at dawn when “the critters” and deer are out and about in the fields and woods surrounding the house.

Midcoast Maine is heaven for those who enjoy biking, kayaking (lake, river, and sea), fishing, and walking/hiking. You won’t have to leave the property to kayak and fish on the river! We have two single person kayaks and two canoes that you are welcome to use.
