simpler, bygone era.SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!Located on Westport Island in Midcoast Maine this 1850's Farmhouse sits amid two and a half acres of blueberry bushes and lawn. Follow the path down to the waterfront to swim or kayak from the original stone piers. The property includes 600 feet of shoreline along the Sasanoa River, a tidal, salt-water river full of aquatic sea-life. The Sasanoa River is great for fishing, bird watching, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and more.Located about 2/3 of the way down Westport Island, this cottage is two miles off the main road at the end of a country lane, where the only sounds are the cries of birds and the muffled engines of lobster boats making the rounds of their traps offshore. A family of seals sometimes hauls up on the rocks of Willis Point a few hundred feet away. For a feeling of complete calm and solitude, start your day sitting on the Adirondack chairs on the front terrace sipping your coffee while watching the ripples spread on the bay (as the fog burns off, you will often spot eagles and ospreys) - and end it sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset turn the water pink and orange. If you want action, the attractions of Wiscasset (1/2 hour) Damariscotta (40 minutes away), or Bath (1/2 hour) are of world-class interest. There is always the lively waterfront at Boothbay Harbor or the L.L. Bean outlet in Freeport less than an hour away. For every taste or age group there's more than plenty to do, from the fish ladder to the Indian shell midden, to the antiques shops, house museums, or the Maine Maritime Museum; excursions of all kinds are available nearby, off- and on-shore ones, from cruises to group paddles. As far as dining goes, a list and descriptions of some local restaurants are available at the house; you certainly won't be disappointed here!There are miles of scenic walking paths and trails on and around the property. Walk over to the Bonyun Preserve; a member of the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust with a tidal inlet, Mixed old-growth woods, fresh water marshes, estuary, riparian and pocket woodlands. Another path will take you to the neighbor's Tarbox Farm; an organic farm dating back to 1770 that is still active today. During the season, feel free to explore the blueberry bushes and brambles, eating as you go or bring back enough for blueberry pie!The spreading chestnut tree in the side yard invites you to sit under its shade and enjoy a visit with family and friends or just read a book. Maybe sit on the stoop and shell some peas or shuck some corn that you got from the neighboring Tarbox Farm. This is a wonderful house and perfect location to unplug from the everyday world.THE HOUSEClassic Maine farmhouse built by seafarers in 1848. Newly renovated in 2014.
