About Jonathan Blum
Our family has owned this property since the 1960's. My grandfather and mother lived here. My sister and I live in New York State. We are not quite ready to retire to this marvelous place, just yet. So we are following our neighbors lead and exploring the 21st-century sharing economy.
Jonathan Blum purchased this House in 1963
Why Jonathan Blum chose Cushing
The main sections of Chadwick House were first built in 1845, we think. Additions came in 1920's and the 1990's. It is built with a mix of handhewn logs, traditional framing, and modern plaster. And offers a relaxed, spacious atmosphere with sea views from both the front and back of the house. Open fields run down right to the shore line, where there is a mix of granite ledge and sand beach. Massive 14-foot tides sweep the St. George River in and out with crisp, cold sea water. There is no fishing, boating, kayaking, or swimming like it.
What makes this House unique
Excellent light. Quiet unique setting. Ideal for boaters and art lovers. Andy Wyeth painted his masterpiece "Christina's World" to the left of this photo. We also have a professionally tuned piano. It's a great place for musicians.

Fantastic week in Cushing!
This 1850s sea captain's house lives up to its reputation as a rustic yet very comfortable vacation home. It is spacious and has rooms for all moods and occasions, with appropriate furniture for lounging and dining inside and out. The huge lawn is great for croquet and other outdoor games. Gas and charcoal grills complement the well-appointed kitchen, and there are plenty of pots and pans for those who love to cook.
Our seafaring family particularly enjoyed the location, with views of Maple Juice Cove on one side, and the St. George River on the other, and a dock that made it possible to enjoy a variety of boating and water activities. As advertised, the breeze between the two coves make it very easy to keep the house cool.
Nature lovers will enjoy the woods for walks and the frequent visits by osprey, goldfinches, and terns, and if you venture out on the waters, you are almost certain to see seals.
Great place & atmosphere!!
Great place & atmosphere! Both double bed mattresses are AWEFULL!!! Need to be replaced!! Otherwise everything was great!!
I just wanted to follow up on this. It turned out when we opened the house summer before last, we bought all new mattresses. But the units had varying firmness.
We had no idea.
So for next summer, we are going to get a super firm mattress for downstairs. And make sure there are fim and soft options on every floor.
Thanks for flagging us. Soft mattresses are the worst!
Thanks for your note. Yea, the place is great.
Wow, that's good to know about our mattresses. Don't you hate a crappy mattress? The thing is, we replaced every single bed in the house with a brand new, high-quality box spring and mattress, summer before last.
I wonder if they were defective somehow. We will definitely check them out, this winter. And figure something out for next year.
Thanks for the heads up!
Nice fun old house.
Beautiful place to settle-in and enjoy the simple pleasures of life
We spent a lovely week at this beautiful home. We spent evenings on the lawn enjoying our children. We spent days on the water enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.
Well, thanks SO much. We absolutely enjoyed having you anf your family. It's really is our pleasure to share this piece of history with nice people.
Please stay in touch.
A Perfect Dose of New England Charm!
Our family and visiting relatives occupied Chadwick House for a week. It was a slice of heaven! Gorgeous setting on the water, lots of charm in the rambling old home, plenty of room, fully equipped kitchen and pantry, remote setting yet close enough to everything you could want or need. Jonathan was an attentive host and made sure we were equipped with a spot on itinerary for collecting provisions along the drive in from Portland. We spent lots of lazy days reading, playing croquet, cooking and fishing from the deep water dock. We'd return in a heartbeat - it's a really special place! The kids were so enthralled no one asked for the TV. Don't miss Jameson Point Lobster Co. around the corner in Friendship. It might not be on the water, but the food was incredible, the owners so friendly and well worth the stop (or two).
Well thanks SO much Gianna. We really enjoyed having you. I am sorry it took us so long to get back to you. For some reason we did not see this lovely note.
We so enjoy sharing our home with people who understand what it is.
Plus, you left the place spotless.
Please stay in touch!
We had a great stay, two weeks in this peaceful location and the decompression was almost complete before we had to return to the daily grind. This location is remote, quiet and very lovely. Thomaston is not Camden, thankfully, and Cushing is a far piece from Thomaston, so you're away from the bustle and flow that sometimes marks summertime Maine.
Rockland has changed materially since I worked there 30+ years ago. Very cool.
The house is aged, eclectic and comfortable - the pictures demonstrate it appropriately. Has the character of an antique saltwater farm with some modern upgrades.The owner is helpful, cheerful and very relaxed. His suggestion of Saturday breakfast at the Broad Cove Church was a great way to meet some neighbors. We had a wonderful vacation - next time I bring a boat.
Gee whiz, this review is so sweet. We really enjoyed having you. It's been so much fun to open the place up and have great guests like you guys
Absolutely, bring a boat next time!!! That is the one thing we have not yet found. Boat people who understand what's truly amazing about this place: The water!
Please stay in touch.
The Saint Georges River is one of the last protected estuaries in the mid coast. It is tucked inside of the popular Penobscot Bay. And offers unparalleled fresh and salt water fishing, sailing, island exploration, and boating.
Note: We do not provide equipment for activities. At this level, it makes more sense to bring your own.
