Where the land meets the ocean and the sky....

45 Shell Road, Phippsburg, Maine  04562

The point of land known as 45 Shell Road and home for over a century to Rock Gardens Inn has been a refuge for artists, writers, travelers, and anyone seeking relief and respite from the pressures of the wider world for over a century. Situated on an idyllic peninsula, bordered by the sea and shores comprised of granite and quartz, this property preserves the sensibilities of summertime and memories from decades past. From the sun-drenched lawns and gardens to the dramatic shoreline and sunsets and moon rises that light up both the sky and waves, the property has been a safe haven for all who visit. The time has come for its owner to share this breathtaking property, for its next steward to come and create their own legacy on the shores of Maine.


The property is being divided into two new parcels (2 separate listings), each with its own distinctive attributes, there is the option to purchase them together.
