A bright, cozy home with a welcoming ambiance on a quiet side street near Thomaston center. The house is surrounded by 5 acres of unspoiled rolling fields giving an incredible sense of privacy, all while still in town. Easy walking distance to all the attractions of historic Thomaston, and a central location from which to explore Mid-Coast Maine.

The space
The Morse house has an open floor plan with an airy, sunny living room and a welcoming dining area with a country kitchen behind it. The decor is cheerful and bright--wood, white, a few strong accents of color--and gives the feel of a well cared-for house, sparkling clean and inviting. The bedrooms each have queen sized beds, and there is an additional wood-paneled library/den with easy access to the spacious yard with its large trees, flowers, and fields.


-Kitchen: Well equipped full kitchen with new electric stove and refrigerator. Microwave, coffeemaker, hot water pot, toaster, blender, and plenty of cooking utensils. Basic condiments and spices are provided.

-Snacks: We supply coffee, tea and sugar. You'll find a variety of light snacks (may include yogurt, fruit, crackers, cookies), and bottled water.

-Bedrooms: Brand new queen size pillow top mattresses in both bedrooms.

-Library/Den: Drop leaf table opens out to a convenient desk surface or games table.

-Books & Games: There is wide selection of books and assortment of games for your amusement. Also a croquet set for use on the big lawn.

-Washer and dryer: Laundry detergent included.

-Outdoors: Patio table and chairs overlooking the field; private off-street parking.

Guest access
The land around the house, particularly the fields behind the house with their secluded, expansive feel, are ready for you to explore; or you may choose to muse in chairs under the large trees, or enjoy the pastoral view from the outdoor table.

Other things to note
The living areas are on one floor, but there is a staircase down to the large, clean and clear basement where you will find the washer and dryer. The stairs are very safe for adults but are not child-safe, so if you have children with you you take them to the basement at your own risk. The house is not especially "child proofed" but with reasonable supervision children of a certain age will enjoy the house with its fields and gardens!

Location

Thomaston, Maine, United States

The area is very quiet while close to everything. You can walk or bike.

Thomaston Cafe provides great Sunday brunch and lunch/dinner. Eat on the dock at the Slip Way for lunch or dinner and have fresh fish while enjoying the water. The friendliness of this town is reflected in the Free Friday Night Movies at the town library at 7pm. There is salt water fishing from the town landing.

Enjoy the beautiful architecture and the Museum in the Street placards that provide information on the many historic sea captains houses. Thomaston was known as "The Town that Went to Sea" and due to the shipping industry in 1840 two out of the seven "millionaires" in the United States lived in Thomaston. The town is rich with the echoes of that illustrious past and is filled with history! Thomaston is located at the start of two magnificent peninsulae filled with history as well, and with the stunning natural beauty of the Maine coast, all starting at your doorstep.

There are in- town hiking trails, Schooner day trips, bare boat charters, sea kayaking, ferries, swimming in lakes and coves, and beach-combing the coast with its islands. Penobscot Bay is one of the world's greatest sailing areas and boating enthusiasts will find this a paradise. There's also historic Knox Mansion overlooking the town, and Port Clyde's Marshall Point Light (featured in the movie Forrest Gump).

We are four miles from Rockland, 8 miles from Rockport, and ten miles from Camden. The Cushing and St. George Peninsula both start at the harbor. Marshall Point Light and the Olsen House of Wyeth fame are just two enticing destinations within an easy drive.

There is great hiking in the Camden Hill's State Park and the George's River Preserve which together include most of the coastal mountains with stunning views of sea and mountains. Easy access to the Blues Festival, Wooden Boat Show, Lobster Festival, and Farnsworth Museum. Perfect for a quiet night's sleep and getting up early to catch the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island, or as a home base from which to explore the entire mid-coast region, with day trips from Pemaquid Point to Acadia National Park!

I moved from Springfield. Ma. 30 years ago to take a speech therapy job in the Thomaston, Cushing and St. George schools. Over time, I have worked w/ a population from preschool to ninety + year olds in the CDS system and the medical/health field. With the exception of a short 3 month stint in Atlanta, Georgia, I have been here ever since and have appreciated the dynamics of small-town living and the beauty of the area. One of my daughters continues to live in the area, while my other daughter and her family live in St. Croix, U.S. V.I and they still are making frequent trips back to Maine. Gardening, dancing and outdoor activities are areas that I enjoy; however, they are not as much fun as meeting people from all over. It is a good match for my eclectic tastes!
