Four generations of Nolans have spent summers in this house by the ocean. It was built for our grandparents as a wedding present in 1913 back when Cushings Island was a well known East Coast resort. Today the island is more of a quiet private retreat from the work-a-day world but it has retained much of its 19th century charm. Forty families make this summer island their home during all or part of the season.

We love it here and hope you will have a chance to get to know it.

Herbert Nolan purchased this house in 1913

Cushings is a private island served by a private ferry from Portland. Its paths, beaches, docks, tennis courts, and other amenities are available to all who stay on the island. One can wander at will along miles of paths that lead to various beaches, coves, and eventually to the rugged coast line facing the open ocean.

The west coast of Cushings Island where we live is one of the rare places in Maine where once can sit and watch the sunset across a glistening bay. (Taking in the sunset from the veranda over a drink before dinner is a bit of a time honored ritual at Edgemere.) Two acres of lawn and meadow along the shore offer ample room to play games or relax in Adirondack chairs. A sandy beach at the foot of the lawn offers great swimming and boating. Two other crescent beaches just down the path provide quiet solitude. .

ACCESS: Cushings Island is served by private ferry which operates daily. An on-call water taxi service is always available and is very prompt. One could fly into the Portland airport and be on the island within the hour. The Island is a twenty minute boat ride from the Portland waterfront yet feels worlds apart from the mainland. It is a rustic get away with no stores or cars. One truck is used by the island crew for delivering groceries and luggage from the dock to the houses. Several stores town will bag up and delivered grocery orders to the ferry for delivery to the island with prior notice. For those who want a night on the town, Portland’s 'Old Port' with its charming restaurants and bars is just across the bay.

Two sandy beaches are just steps away from the wrap around veranda and one acer lawn overlooking the ocean. The island has several miles of walking trails leading to coves, rocky cliffs, and a rugged coast line towards the open ocean. Several clay tennis courts are available for communal use by the 40 households on the island. One can kayak directly from the shore in front of the house to visit other nearby islands. Cushing is a rustic get away with no stores or cars but Portland’s Old Port with its charming shops, restaurants, and movie theatre is a short 20 minute ride by taxi boat away.
