A SERENE AND BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT HAVEN WITH METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED GARDENS.

Cushing House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom. Sleeps 7. Private dock, mooring.

Merry Wisdom Cottage is located in Cushing, Andrew Wyeth Country. Sitting neatly on Davis Cove, part of Muscongus Bay, it close to Thomaston, Rockland, Rockport, and Camden. Across the cove is Friendship, the home of the old Friendship sloops. The house is close to the confluence of the St. George River where islands string out all the way to Monhegan Island. There is an acre of professionally-maintained gardens and 370 feet of deepwater frontage with granite rocks to clamber on. There is a small wooded area with a shaded picnic table that is a delight on sunny days. The house faces west with furnished decks and awnings for sunset-watching and amazing gardens and ocean views at any time. Davis Cove is home to sailboats, lobster fishermen, seals, flotillas of eiders, blue heron, cormorants, and osprey. MWC is perfectly maintained, fully and beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with all amenities. MWC is perfect for swimming, boating, fishing, exploring, biking and relaxing.

Car: necessary

Cushing, situated on its own peninsula southwest of Thomaston, is famous for its saltwater farms and is at the heart of Maine's 'Wyeth Country.' The Olson House—immortalized by Andrew Wyeth's paintings of the structure and its occupants, Christina and Alvaro Olson—is a widely recognized icon of the region. Another attraction is the Cushing Historical Society Museum on Hathorn Point Road. Cushing is primarily a rural residential community with few commercial enterprises. Cushing is 15 minutes from Thomaston, 20 minutes from Rockland and Tenants Harbor and 25 minutes from Camden and Port Clyde.

Notes:
Bookshelves hold many tempting volumes as well as videos and games for children. Upstairs, the Great Room with vaulted ceiling is surrounded by windows and fabulous 180 degree views as well as a stone fireplace with inviting comfortable seating. The dining area can accommodate up to 12 in a pinch. The cozy viewing-sunroom contains a TV, with a Platinum cable-channel-viewing-package, VCR, DVD systems as well as the CD and radio. There is a powder room upstairs. The master bedroom has a TV as well. The kitchen is fully-equipped for any gourmet cook's needs, including, on the kitchen deck, two BBQs and a propane set up for cooking lobsters, and a washer and dryer. The house is just steps from the ocean where a deep water mooring and float (28 feet at low tide) can accommodate a very large boat. Fishing and swimming for the hardy are great activities, as is biking on the country roads.
