SUNNY SALTWATER COTTAGE STEPS FROM WATER,

Cushing Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Perfect for a couple. - sleeps up to 4

A charming and quiet waterfront cottage in the heart of Wyeth country awaits you for a romantic getaway. Enjoy fresh Maine blueberry muffins and coffee while watching the sunrise from your private pebbly beach. Relax and unwind in the swing set while watching seals and osprey fishing. Observe the lobstermen ply their trade as they fish in Broad Cove. Kayaks are available for rental nearby. A short drive from numerous Mid - Coast attractions. Guest comments include: ''The cottage is an oasis, timeless and precious. ' 'A quiet, cozy refuge, perfect for relaxing and exploring. ' ''Thank you for providing the ideal haven to rest, refresh, and rejuvenate.' 'You truly have a little piece of heaven here. We could not have asked for a more relaxing week. '

Spectacular Beauty: If you are looking for the authentic Maine experience, this area has it. The Rockland-Thomaston area is the entry point to Penobscot Bay, perhaps the most scenic body of water on the eastern seaboard. Here you'll find scores of islands, a dozen historic lighthouses, and quiet little harbors filled with working lobster boats. Ospreys and bald eagles nest high in the spruces along the rugged shores, Puffins make the islands their homes, deer browse the open fields, moose forage the wetlands, and harbor seals make their annual pilgrimage to quiet coves.

The property is owned by Helen and Merritt Webster. After living in several states including NY, PA and TX Helen retired to her favorite state, Maine. Maine is a place of peace and rugged beauty. One of Helen's passions is cooking. She and Merritt are both avid gardeners.and have created beautiful seaside gardens. on the property. Merritt is a native Mainer with sea-salt in his blood with many generations of sailors and fishermen preceding him. He loves anything to do with the water and also has a passion for woodworking. We both love nature and soak up as much as we can. We love to travel in Maine and beyond. Living next door we are available to meet your needs and to share our extensive knowledge of the area.

Helen Webster purchased this cottage in 1997

The rocky coast of Maine is a natural wonder. The cottage sits several feet above the water. It provides a stunning view of the cove with it's ragged coastline jutting out in the water framed by evergreens. You can access the pebbly private beach by stairs

Located at the end of a private dirt road the property is very quiet and peaceful. The cove is a wonderful place to kayak or for more adventure you can paddle to the open sea. Nestled close to the water's edge the view is every changing. The sparkle of the water is magic. Osprey love to fish here along with a wide array of birds including frequent bald eagles. It is a great place to read or just sit and relax.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about our wonderful week at Cove's Edge! The location - peaceful and private, the views - stunning, the cottage - charming. The cottage itself was adorable, and had all the amenities we needed - a fully functional kitchen, shower with good water pressure, and a comfortable bed and futon (there were 3 of us). It was clean and organized, and was obviously tended to with loving care. The grounds were lovely, as Helen and Merritt are both excellent gardeners. There were fresh flowers on the table when we arrived, and Helen gave us lavender from her garden as we prepared to leave. She also baked us the most delicious blueberry muffins - what a treat! Helen and Merritt are lovely hosts - very helpful and kind, but also happy to give privacy. The best part of Cove's Edge is location, though. Directly on the water. Just a lawn and a few steps to the beach. I went every afternoon at low tide for some beach-combing, which was ridiculously relaxing. I fell asleep each night to the sounds of small lapping waves and the sounds of the seals (at low tide, they gather on two big rocks nearby). We also occupied ourselves with the comings and goings of the (very active) bird feeder (goldfinches and cardinals), a woodchuck who checked us out from the beach stairs, a chipmunk, and a few squirrels. Although we had 2 days of rain, the view of the water from the kitchen table was enough to keep us happy. The cottage is also very close to some great spots in Thomaston (the prison store), Rockland (Brass Compass, Quilt Divas quilt shop, shopping on Route 1), Owl's Head (the transportation museum is pretty amazing, even if you're not into that kind of thing, and go to the Owl's Head General Store and get a 7-Napkin Burger), Camden (the Once a Tree shop had some real finds), and Belfast (FIddelheads art/craft supply was adorable). We also took a drive up the Big Chicken Barn in Ellsworth, where we spent 3 solid hours looking a used books and antiques - that place is huge! Since returning to the real world, I have recommended this cottage to quite a few people, all of whom were interested as soon as I showed them a picture of the view. Truly a gem of a place! Highly recommended!

GREAT RELAXING WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The view was great of the Bay we were on. We went to relax and it was so easy to do that. We really didn't want to leave to see the many other places there were around us. But we did leave and had a wonderful time in each of the towns we visited. We can't wait to go back.

Hidden Treasure on Broad Cove

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose Maine for our getaway to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. Little did we know that we had actually found a hidden treasure on Broad Cove! This is truly a little piece of Heaven! The cottage was quaint, charming and comfortable with everything we needed provided. The setting is spectacular and so relaxing! The cottage is actually very convenient for sightseeing all along Route 1 where most attractions are located. We enjoyed the Farnswort Museum and Olson House, all of the lighthouses and picturesque fishing villages.
Helen and Merrit were charming hosts and Helen's blueberry muffins were wonderful! I hope to return again sometime soon.

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5
I'm writing this review during our last evening at Cove's Edge. I'm here with my husband for a romantic get away to celebrate our newly empty nest. The property is located within a 30 minute drive from many local sites and restaurants. While here we visted Rockland, Rockport, Camden and Damriscotta. Our favorite activity however, has been to sit on the deck and enjoy the view while reading, knitting, chatting and relaxing.

The cottage is charming and the photos don't do it justice. It is also well appointed with a very functional kitchen. I enjoy cooking which has been especially fun given the beautiful water view through the kitchen window. Helen's knack for decorating with antiques carries through every room in the cottage beginning right as you enter with a special welcome just for you.

Helen and Merritt were charming hosts . Helen baked us some fabulous blueberry muffins yesterday morning. They also gave us plenty of privacy to enjoy our romantic vacation. I highly recommend this vacation rental. We have truly enjoyed it.

Cove’s Edge is Wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Cove’s Edge is a very charming and peaceful oasis, beautifully situated on a quiet cove on a peninsula in Cushing Maine.

The cottage is perfect for a relaxing vacation, yet it is close enough for day trips to great sites like the Farnsworth Museum, the Olson house, Camden/Rockland/Rockport for galleries, a day ferry trip to Vinalhaven, and the spectacular Maine Botanical garden in Boothbay. Don’t miss the local farmstands (Beth’s farm and School House farm in Warren were favorites). Returning to the cottage at the end of a day’s outing was a highlight, as it felt like returning home.

The cottage is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and has lovely gardens. The master bedroom has a large sitting area with a gas fireplace for cozy nights (and a few chilly mornings). The view from the kitchen window is spectacular and there is every pot and utensil one could possibly need. On the lower level there is a living room with French doors and windows providing lots of light that lead to a deck (with Adirondack chairs, a grill and a table and chairs for dining outside) that leads to a lawn (with more Adirondack chairs!) that leads down to steps down to the cove, with beautiful views and varied waterfowl to watch.

Helen and Merritt are the most delightful and thoughtful hosts…it felt like visiting with old friends! They provided special touches like fresh flowers from their garden to greet visitors, WARM homemade blueberry muffins delivered on a plate decorated with flowers, a nice collection of books and local area guides, and they are very helpful with recommendations of places to visit. It’s a very special place…can’t wait to go back!

The Mid coast is perhaps the best place to start exploring Maine's 3,500 miles of coastline including it's numerous inlets, fishing villages and bays along with 2,000 islands. This area and Acacia National Park are the only places on the East Coast where the mountains meet the sea. The views of Penobcot Bay are world class. You must drive to the top of Mt Battie ! Locally Wyeth landscapes abound with the Olson House and the Farnsworth Museum just a few miles from the cottage. Other nearby attractions are a ferry to Monhegan Island, perhaps the most beautiful of Maine's islands. Great shops, restaurants, lighthouses and parks are a short distance away. Boating, swimming and sunbathing are available in pristine lakes or along several miles of sand beaches on the ocean. Other activities in the area are whale - watching and puffin boat rides along with helicopter, glider and plane rides. Mountains are at the edge of the sea for climbing. Acadia Natl. Park Park is about two hrs. away. New England's largest botanical coastal garden is nearby as well. Sample the delectable locally caught seafood including lobster, crab, shrimp. oyster, mussels ,clams and an assortment of fin fish.
