Why Rick Wohlfarth chose Sebascodegan Island
I bought this property a number of years ago because I was surrounded by water on all three sides and the complete privacy of being on a peninsula. I live and work in NYC in an apartment building so this offers a completely different escape for me. Most of the islands nearby the house are deeded back to the Harpswell Land Trust so they will never be developed and will remain untouched. We have a American Bald Eagle sanctuary in the island (Big Hen Island) directly in back of the house and they visit us in the trees frequently.
What makes this House unique
Water water everywhere, watching the boats go by , really being in nature. This is not just a typical rental house. It's my 2nd home. It has been professionally furnished with antiques, and original Maine art. I want people to enjoy it just the way I do when I am there.

Elegant home, beautiful location
This elegant and beautifully decorated home surpasses all expectations of a vacation cottage and provided ample space and privacy for a two-family reunion, eight adults altogether. A highlight of the stay was a visit by bald eagles from a nearby sanctuary. Rick is a gracious host who is quick to respond to questions and offer suggestions for dining and activities.
This Southern family loves Harpswell
Well what a pleasure was to stay in your beautiful home Rick. My family is all around the Casco Bay Area so to be able to find such an amazing home with a dock for our boat was such a blast. We island hopped daily. Most of our extended family choose to lounge at Rick's home because is was so comfortable. Swimming, boating, paddle boarding, fishing we did it all. The weather was perfect and I have no words to describe the sunsets.
The house is furnished beautifully. The linens were high end to say the least.
We loved our time in Harpswell and would recommend this house highly.
Thank you for the 5 star treatment Rick!

The Great Escape
Truly a one-of-a-kind escape to sophisticated peace and quiet. Three generations enjoyed this very comfortable, well appointed, well built, beautiful home on a quiet wooded peninsula of Cundy's Harbor. The row boat and the kayak offered a unique opportunity to get out on the water and to explore the area. The large kitchen and dining room allowed wonderful family dinners and game nights. (Oh, and the kids and working adults appreciated great WiFi!). It was very obvious that a great effort was made to cover every detail to make out stay comfortable. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
Fantastic Maine coastal getaway!
Our family spent a week at this gorgeous home and loved every minute. The house is beautiful and comfortable with water views on all sides. Private and remote in feel but only a 5 minute walk to one of the best lobster shacks around. Adirondack chairs on the point for reading. Lovely patio to watch the sunsets. Dock for swimming, kayaking and canoeing. The owner Rick answered every question within minutes. He also gave us some great local tips. I didn't want to leave!
All the way, from responsive interaction, to wood for the fire, to a beautiful, crisp, clean, and eclectically decorated home. An excellent way for us to spend graduation week with family.
We stayed a week at this lovely house on a beautiful plot of land. Highlights were: kayaking and canoeing around the point, watching the Perseid meteor shower from the dock, enjoying sunset from the Adirondack chairs, and exploring the Brunswick area. The kitchen is fully equipped and the caretaker, Dan, was extremely helpful. I would think twice about bringing small children – there are a lot of breakables around, but aside from that we recommend it highly.
