26 Split Rock Cove is an artist's retreat offering studio space, living arrangements, and workshops for artists and writers looking for a peaceful, nurturing environment. We are located on 3 acres overlooking the coast of Maine. The owner, Sandy Weisman, lives on the property.

We know that making art requires both solitude and community.

Our goals include:
  • A comfortable venue by the ocean in mid-coast Maine for writers and artists.
  • Studio space for local or visiting artists.
  • A select number of workshops with a focus on writing and book making, available to beginning or practicing artists and writers.
  • A live/work space that can be rented by the month or year.
