Steeped in history and mystery, this 1874 Victorian sea captain’s mansion is located in the quaint town of Searsport on the shores of Penobscot Bay. Former home of renowned impressionist artist, Waldo Peirce, the house was his refuge and his inspiration. The house affords modern amenities while retaining its old world charm and quirks.
Situated between Camden and Bar Harbor, the house is perfectly located to explore mid coast Maine and beyond.
