vacation rental description

Beautiful Mid-Coast Maine 

Located in South Thomaston

Escape the hot, sticky city to sit atop the picturesque St. Georges River in the backyard of this charming 2 bedroom, 1-1/2 bath cottage for a relaxing and blissful vacation.  Strategically situated at the end of a private road the only thing between you and the water are a few tranquil steps.  The tidal river recedes twice daily as the tides move in and out.  At low tide, watch the local clammers sift through the muddy river bottom searching for a hearty dozen steamers for dinner.  The large lawn overlooks the river and is a perfect place for a friendly game of Croquet, Frisbsee, Bacci Ball or Badminton.

House sleeps four with two single beds and one full.  But there is plenty of room for a few extra in sleeping bags.

Within 10 minutes of downtown Rockland and within 20 minutes of picturesque Port Clyde, Tenant's Harbor, Rockport and more.  The sandy beach of Drift Inn beach is a short drive down the road.

An easy trip from the West Coast -- fly Jet Blue or Virgin America direct from LAX to Boston, rent a car and make the beautiful drive North approximately 3 1/2 hours.  Or, fly into JFK for a short stop over, then on to Portland, Maine to rent a car and drive the 1 1/2 hours into town.  There is a one car garage and plenty of room for more cars.

Happy Family of 5

Review submitted: August 7, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

Hi Gloria,

Thanks to you and your family for all the great info in the area. We have had a great time. We just got back from a sunset cruise on the Heron, definitely a highlight. The air bed worked great.

Thanks again for this being such an easy rental experience.

Quaint, Quiet, Beautiful View :)

Review submitted: August 22, 2012   Date of arrival: August 3, 2012

We had a 3 night stay at this cute little house in August 2012 as we were in Maine for the first time and traveled there to attend the Lobster Festival. Everything about the rental process was smooth and efficient. The renter was wonderful to work with and very informative about the area and property itself. It's secluded at the end of a lane with a gorgeous view of the river right off of the back yard. It was neat to watch the clam diggers early in the mornings getting their digging done for the day. The sunsets were AMAZING! :) The house was very well equipped with everything you need to cook if you choose, even a lobster pot (which we definitely used!). The rooms were spacious and cozy and especially nice in the evenings and all the windows opened. There were specific directions left out for us as to how to handle trash, how to cook lobster, etc. which we found very helpful. The only thing to really be prepared for is that the water is well water so the first time you really use it, it had a funky smell, but got better throughout the stay. We grew up on well water so it didn't bother us too much but the other couple that was with us, didn't know what to think! haha Everything else being perfect made up for it so it wasn't a big deal AT ALL. :)

It was in close proximity to several things, especially Rockland only being about 10-15 minutes away. Places to go: The Maine State Prison Museum...fascinating, gorgeous hand made gifts! A must see! The Rockland port where the festival is held is beautiful and the lighthouse museum is there too which is pretty neat. Overall; this was a wonderful first experience to have in Maine and we will definitely stay here again should we get the opportunity to visit again!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway

Owners response: Thank you so much. We appreciate the care you took with the house and look forward to your next stay. Sorry about the well water odor. We did have the plumber get out there but you already had to endure the funky smell. We really appreciate your patience and understanding regarding that.

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay.
