2 bedroom accommodation in Cushing

Located in: Cushing
Gaunt Neck – sleeps 8 in 1 bedroom and 1 expansive second floor loft area, 2.5 bathrooms

Tucked into a gorgeous jut of land on Muscongus Bay and set amongst ancient, towering pine trees weathered by the salt air, The Timber House offers the kind of peace and tranquility we are all yearning for.

Built by a family from New York, this Post and Beam chalet-style property is part rustic, part modern, this is a timeless space set atop a hill, overlooking the waterfront below. 

Soaring ceilings and timber buttresses center around a massive granite fireplace – The Timber House is a four season property with views and atmosphere equally beautiful in the summer as it is in the fall and winter. Private, the property lets you take in the stillness of Maine day; you'll hear lobster boats in the distance, sea birds calling high above you and leaves rustling in the breeze. Take a walk, kayak, sit by the shore, read, write, paint, explore – we promise, this is the place to do it.

The Timber House has a light, open floor plan thanks to large windows throughout the house. The first floor has a half bath in the entrance hall way – the hall opens onto a large living room with comfortable seating and a flat screen television with DirectTV connection.  To the left of the large fire place, is a dining area with French doors leading to the front deck. The deck has two Adirondack chairs, perfect for coffee in the morning. 

The kitchen is large and modern with a cook in mind – a gas stove and a center island for food prep, the counter space is generous. The kitchen is open to the rest of the house, making socializing while preparing any meal easy. 

To the right of the fireplace, find a master bedroom with a King bed and an en suite shower bathroom.

The first floor also offers a laundry room and a pantry. 

The second floor is an immense loft area that overlooks the living room and provides some of the best views in the house. With interesting natural architectural details thanks to the timber frame, these spaces are surprisingly cozy. With a queen on one end and two queens on the other, the space between these two sleeping spaces is large and guests won't feel on top of each other.

A path leads to the waterfront – a cove that is lovely for swimming, exploring and boating.

Cushing is a bucolic town and known as Wyeth-land. The famous Andrew Wyeth painting Christina's World  was painted at a farm, which still stands and is open to the public, just minutes from The Timber House.

The more bustling towns and villages of Rockland, Camden, Tenants Harbor and Spruce Head are located just 15-30 minutes away by car. This is a ideal place to start from for daily adventures and a wonderful place to come back to at the end of a long day.
