The Farmhouse is located a half mile from Seawall Beach. It originated as a 200-year-old saltwater farm. The Farmhouse at Morse Farm was transformed into a summer home in the 1930’s
The character of the Farmhouse has been lovingly maintained. In the kitchen several rocking chairs and a breakfast table are centered on a gas-fired cast-iron cookstove. A separate sink room has a large slate sink. A first-floor bathroom with a shower is tucked behind the kitchen.
Completing the ground floor is the living-dining room, stretching the width of the house, and a study with an electric piano. These rooms have shelves of books, games and toys for all ages. On the second floor are the bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with a full bed and one low-ceilinged children’s room with twin single beds. A generous bathroom with shower (no tub) rounds out the floor. Internet is available for an additional $20 per week. There is no television.
The Morse River is an ideal place for bird-watching and exploring in the canoe or the kayak kept for both the Farmhouse and the Barn. A half-mile walk from Morse Farm is the mile-long Seawall Beach, the perfect place for swimming, building sand castles, collecting shells or just wandering. From the top of the Morse Mountain are views of the coast stretching from Portland to Monhegan, an archipelago of islands and, on a clear day, views of snow-covered Mt. Washington.
