Description

Maine Tennis Estate & Farmhouse

This beautiful and enchanting historic center-chimney white clapboard farmhouse was owned by a famous American painter, Frank W. Benson. The main house sleeps 13, and the ‘Captain's House, a guest cottage, sleeps four.
There is an incredibly well-constructed and enormous post and beam barn above the tennis court that Frank Benson used as his art studio; there he painted the iconic oils of his family. His paint is still on the walls where he cleaned his brushes.

There is a romantically long pier and float for boating and swimming and there are two expansive and private beaches on which you can picnic, hunt for sea glass, and enjoy sunsets. To top it off, there is my favorite clay tennis court in the world, with views of the ocean and cool breezes.

This secluded, charming waterfront property simply takes your breath away. You will want to come back every year, as all of our guests do. From your rooms, watch sailboats and lobster boats cross Penobscot Bay.
There are five cozy bedrooms to choose from in the main house. Two of the bedrooms have full-sized beds, and the other three rooms have two twin beds each.

There are endless activities on this property: Enjoy beautiful sunsets, stroll down the deep water granite pier/ramp, play on a gorgeous clay tennis court with views of the water on both sides, ride bicycles, collect mussels, crabs, wildflowers or wild raspberries, stroll or walk in peaceful serenity with nature, paint, draw or take photos. Or curl up in a chair and get lost in a book. Children absolutely love this place and feel it is their dream home.
