Knox House a.k.a. Shorehouse and Tamarack

This house is an exceptional coastal Maine oceanfront property. It is situated on 100+ oceanfront acres in Martinsville, Maine. Literally. This classic Maine ocean front rental house is one of three houses on a private Maine oceanfront estate. This is the property where N.C. Wyeth and Andrew Wyeth painted many of their crashing waves and ocean front paintings, as well as at least one self portrait. The rocky shoreline is known as Cannibal Shore.

The house was built in 1750 on the General Henry Knox plantation in Thomaston, Maine. The house was moved to its current Maine oceanfront location, then restored and renovated. The floors, doors, trim work, some windows, and plaster — as well as fire place mantels — are original.

Martinsville is between Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde, right on the open ocean, the heart of Maine's authentic lobster fishing villages.

The house is on a very gentle slope to the rocky shoreline, 50 feet from the open ocean. We are between the Muscle Ridge islands off of Spruce Head and Owls Head, south of Penobscot Bay, and just a few hundred yards north of Mosquito Island. You can see Mosquito Island from the shore in front of the house. Port Clyde and the mouth of the St. George River, Monhegan Island, Muscongus Bay, Cushing and Friendship are south of this location. Tenants Harbor is 3 miles east of the house and Port Clyde is 3.5 miles south of the house.

Lobster fishing boats, tugs, schooners, yawls, and yachts of every variety and description cross the waters in front of the house. There is abundant wildlife, including eagles, osprey, seabirds, songbirds, loons, owls, moose, wild turkeys and more.

This spacious 2-story Maine ocean front rental house has 4 bedrooms: 1 with a king, 2 with double beds, and 1 bedroom with two twin beds.
