Property Features

Description

Merry Wisdom Cottage is located in Cushing, Andrew Wyeth Country, at the end of Pleasant Point Road.

Located on Davis Cove, part of Muscongus Bay, it is close to Thomaston, Rockland, Rockport, and Camden. Across the cove is Friendship, the home of the old Friendship sloops. The house is not far from the confluence of the St. George River where islands string out all the way to Monhegan Island.

The house faces west with furnished decks and awning 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.

With a full acre of phenomenal grounds, featuring award-winning English country gardens, and 370 feet of deep water frontage, Merry Wisdom is its own perfect, private and peaceful escape. The sloping waterfront rocks and the dock (*seasonal) are great places to swim and kayak from. The cove is a great spot for swimming and warmer than most — when the tide goes out the sun warms the rocks. When the tide comes back in, the water heats up!

On the ground floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed and a private bath with a shower. This room as wonderful water views and sliding glass doors to the lawn. The master also has a flat-screen television.

The second bedroom has a queen bed with views of both the gardens and the waterfront. The third bedroom has two twin beds views of the garden. These two bedrooms share a full bath with a shower/tub.

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. WiFi is also provided.

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. There is an acre of professionally-maintained gardens and 365 feet of waterfront with granite rocks to clamber on. There is a small wooded area with a shaded picnic table that is a delight on sunny days.

Notes

WIFI NOTE: SummerMaine recognizes that access to the internet is as important as electricity and running water to most, if not all, people. However, Maine is a more rural state by nature and infrastructure. Accessibility is limited, often unpredictable and unreliable depending on location.
While some properties do have internet connection that is more “modern”, many properties are in locations that only allow for DSL or satellite connection which can be slower and at the mercy of weather, whole network connectivity and the like.
Please be aware SummerMaine cannot guarantee the speed or accessibility of the internet at any of our properties during your stay.
Outages of any type are not the basis for a refund. We cannot guarantee repair times or repair person availability.
With that said, if you have certain needs regarding the internet, please let us know and we will indicate the properties providing the service that best meets your needs.
