About

Our home in Searsmont, Maine, is thoughtfully designed and hand-built for quiet contemplation, relaxation, and the pursuit of creative work in a bucolic setting. Equidistant from Belfast and Camden (20 min) and located near Lawry Pond, the house is well-situated on a large, open lot with gently sloping hills, two small ponds, and is bordered by old growth pine, maple, and birch trees. The house itself was custom designed by two artists, and draws on Shaker and post-and-beam traditions. In addition to the house's two bedrooms, charming eat-in kitchen, working fireplace, decorative wood stove, built-in closets, and spacious seasonal screened-in porch, the house also includes two additional larger rooms that could comfortably function as studios, bedrooms, offices, or living areas. It has been lovingly occupied by our family every summer for more than 40 years. The house is available to rent during the academic year, and an ideal tenant would be looking for a cozy, creative retreat during the fall, winter, and spring. Please reach out with any questions!
