This classic New England post and beam home is located on a semi private driveway on Osprey Lane in Cushing which has panoramic views of the Meduncook River from each window. The main level has an open concept from the cook's kitchen and island, an elegant dining room with sliders onto the water view shaded deck with dining table, and a spacious living room with cathedral ceilings and French doors onto the water view patio. A master queen bedroom with an en suite bathroom is also found on the main level, as well as a half bath, mud room, and laundry area. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets while playing board games or bar-b-queing on the deck.

Up the stairs from the main entry, you will find a queen bedroom with beamed wooden ceiling, full bathroom and a relaxing sitting area overlooking the living room. In the basement, you will find one bedroom with a queen and one with two twins, both having windows and ample closets. There is a full shared bathroom with tub/shower. Above the two car garage is another nice cathedral ceiling retreat with skylights and water views, perfect for teens to play games or read a book with some additional privacy from the group. The house is spread out so everyone has privacy, but can come together in the main areas to enjoy each other's company as well. There is a private dock on the property which is great for launching kayaks, picnics, and swimming from during mid or high tides. 

Located conveniently in the Midcoast area, the Osprey Cottage is a destination for sea lovers and anyone wanting a relaxing and serene vacation getaway. The large, open property has excellent sun and allows space for the kids to play and explore while the adults enjoy a beverage on the deck with everyone in clear sight and an enclosed outdoor shower to rinse off.

Peaceful Cushing is known in American art as the site of Andrew Wyeth’s painting of “Christina’s World” that hangs in New York’s MOMA. The original house is owned by the Farnsworth Museum, and welcomes seasonal visitors.

I chose OTW because I wanted to work with a locally-based company invested in their brand and focused on their relationships with their property owner partners and guests. Notwithstanding this high bar, the OTW team exceeded my expectations! Easy to work with and highly responsive. Thank you for making this the great family vacation I was hoping for!
In general, the owner is great and the home/property are great. It is a lovely home in a great location. The listing accurately depicted the home. We were surprised and delighted by the lovely flower gardens, the abundant hummingbirds and golden finches, and the opportunity to pick home-grown peaches and berries.

We have been very satisfied with our interactions with the team.
What a gorgeous property! Bright, airy, and wonderful water or meadow views from very room. The house was well equipped, clean, roomy enough for our group of 10, and had wonderful views. We enjoyed our stay tremendously!

You all were so incredibly wonderful to work with. We stayed at Osprey Cottage. When we first arrived and there was an ant infestation, Tiff was ALL OVER IT and had it dealt with within 12 hours after identifying the problem. We were so grateful. At the end of our stay, when we realized some of our son's letters home from sleepaway camp were going to arrive after we left, Tiff forwarded them to our permanent address. I can't tell you how grateful we were for these moments of going above and beyond to ensure our comfort duringand afterour stay!
The water views and water access from Osprey Cottage were incredible. We loved being able to walk down on the dock each morning and take trips out in the paddleboards we rented. It was wonderful.

The OTW team is wonderful. Quick to answer all questions and resolve issues. We have created an annual family trip to Maine through finding OTW and have had good experiences each time. We look forward to our trips as do our family members. We know no matter what location we choose that we will have a wonderful time.
Gorgeous sunsets, birdwatching, kayaking and fishing
