Why we have a crush on this property

There’s a particular brand of nostalgia associated with summer cottages. Even if you’ve never owned one, your mind can probably easily conjure images of swinging screen doors, porches with gentle breezes, and water views from every window.

This idyllic little cabin for sale in midcoast Maine takes all of those qualities and respectfully raises them one. Perched on the banks of the St. George River in Cushing, the four-bedroom home is as cute as they come. It’s also been in the same family for more than 100 years, and its antique details have been preciously preserved.

Exposed beams hang above every room in the house. The open-concept living and dining area is warmed by a brick fireplace, while large windows look out to the porch and river. Most rooms, in fact, offer glimpses of the river, not to mention whitewashed wood walls and lots of light.

Step outside to enjoy a grassy yard, a storage shed, and a sizable porch, then descend a set of steps to the water. There, you’ll find a small dock to do cannonballs from. There’s also plenty of room to launch a kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. The possibilities for old-fashioned summer fun are, as they say, endless.
