DOGS PERMITTED? Dogs are not permitted at this property. Sorry.

You'll be one of the lucky ones when you stay at Arden House, a respite for those who love the outdoors, the sea air, and unmatched privacy. With almost three acres of land and 381 feet of pristine water frontage complete with a sandy beach and water-worn rocks perfect for exploring, it's hard to imagine a more ideal place in Midcoast Maine. 

There are views from virtually every room in the house, with each bedroom (one on the first floor and two on the second floor) offering direct access to decks that overlook the water. Throughout the rest of this open-concept home, you'll find vaulted ceilings, a granite fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Arden House sits five miles off the main road, down a private road shaded by pines, where the road ends at the ocean. A short drive from the conveniences of Thomaston and Rockland, this family compound is immersed in nature with mature forest on three sides and water on the other. It’s the perfect place to take a boat ride down the St. George River (passing working lobster boats and sailboats along the way) to have dinner in Port Clyde or Tenants Harbor. 

The St. George River is a saltwater river that begins in Thomaston and ends at the tip of the St. George Peninsula, where it meets Muscongus Bay, the Mussel Ridge Channel, and the islands that dot this extraordinary part of Maine. Cushing is unspoiled and discrete, renowned for being the inspiration for Christina's World, the famous painting by longtime resident and beloved American artist Andrew Wyeth. More than anything, time slows down here - and that is often just what the doctor ordered.

The pier offers a good place to dock a large vessel if needed or provides a perfect spot for launching kayaks from the property. As a private dock, it is all yours to enjoy!
