Cushing, Maine
This family seasonal home on the waterfront is secluded and serene. With direct waterfront and panoramic views, watch sloops sailing up and down the river, lobstermen pulling pots, even occasional seals leaping or sunning.

Walk, jog or ride your bike around the loop, a 3 or 4-mile circle of road around Stone's Point. Then relax on the screen porch with a book from a large collection throughout the house.

The house is set on a beautiful piece of property on the St. George River, with few neighbors nearby. You can watch the lobster boats patrol the waters and enjoy wildlife and birds as you relax on the screened porch. There is lots of room,...More

I am so sorry you had these problems. As you stated, this was my first year managing the property. The septic pump failing was the only time that has happened in the 14 years since it was installed. I have also addressed the cleaning situation...More
