For Sale

Each generation of owners has lasted 65 years. My father bought the house when I was born and I am now 67 so perhaps it is time to let someone else’s family enjoy the home.  The house is in perfect condition and fully equipped and furnished. It can be used as an elegant summer home or it can continue as a successful summer vacation rental. Offers accepted.

  • For buyers, inquiries for sale can be made directly to Platt Johnson. Buy-Side Brokers protected.
  • For renters, we are currently writing rentals. Any rental lease written will be honored per the terms of the lease.

Rental History

2020 was a challenge for obvious reasons. All of my tenants canceled so we had to rebook everything. After all the work we actually came out of it with a record year. 2021 again set records. Now in February of 2022, we have already surpassed the rental income of all of 2021. My father created the concept of renting the house in wings by adding an additional kitchen and gracious living spaces. This has allowed us to rent to smaller groups and was a godsend during covid.
Renting the house allows us to continue to own, improve, and also share it with people so they can make their own wonderful memories. You cannot have a more authentic and meaningful vacation experience. Reserve your dates while this home is still available.
Some personal thoughts
  • 17 years of property rental management is a pretty good run.
  • The average ownership time period appears to be around 65 years. Built by John O. Morse in 1840, then bought by the Dinsmore family at the turn of the century, and then in 1955 by Norman Dudley Johnson.
  • You never really own these historic houses. You just enjoy them until the next generation comes along.
