About Jean Strock
We love to share this wonderful spot with our visitors. Getting the property ready for rental has been a multi-generational undertaking. We are always interested in suggestions on how we can make our visitors' time in Sailor's Rest even better.
Jean Strock purchased this Cottage in 2003
What makes this Cottage unique
Watching the weather change and the tides come and go is somehow extremely relaxing. But when you are ready to be a tourist there are endless outing possibilities from a day in Boothbay or Camden to a walk on the rocks. The area has all sorts of peninsulas and villages to explore....all with beautiful settings. Be sure to take drives and discover the beauty of our area. Or explore our islands from your kayak.

Relaxation on the Shore
Great stay and location. Family had an amazing time.
A Slice of Heaven....
Cottage was exactly as described, well equipped, extremely clean & a true peaceful spot! Jean was a pleasure to communicate with throughout this transaction. Location was perfect, loons calling, seals swimming, great blue herons, kingfishers, ideal for nature lovers. A working lobster dock was quaint & fun to watch. Nearby shopping & restaurants. Overall perfect Sister's Getaway. Thank you Strock Family!
Lovely cottage. Fell in love the moment we walked in the door. Views were beautiful.
Couldn’t be any closer to the water. The hosts were very helpful. We saw bald eagles, lobster hauls, seals every day. In the evening you could hear the seals sing to each other and the beautiful star filled sky. If quiet and peaceful is what you want, this is the place to stay. Bring your food with you if you are planning to stay off season as many of the restaurants are closed and it’s a good 20 min to a grocery store. We would definitely stay here again
Beautiful locaton. Well kept comfortable house.
Great wildlife siting:seals eagles etc.
Wish I could have stayed for a month
My Best friend and I drove all the way from Illinois to stay in this beautiful house... we hated having to leave. I have been coming to Maine for 20 years now and I can honestly say...Sailors's Rest has been the best place I have ever stayed in. You can not beat the views. I will rent this home again.
Our family loves sharing our special spot right on the water.
A Very "Maine" Cottage
It can be a crapshoot renting sight-unseen. However, Sailor's Rest was exactly as advertised. It sits right on the water in a very quiet, peaceful environment. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. There is a very useable kitchen, however we did not use it much; just too many good restaurants in the area. Jean was very easy to work with, quickly answering any and all questions. This is a great place to just relax. We had everything we needed. Would recommend to anyone.
When you have relaxed and enjoyed our views there are lots of day-trip opportunities: Camden, Bath, Wiscasset, Boothbay, Portland, and all of Casco Bay. 25 minutes to L.L. Bean (Freeport). Visit our lovely state parks and beaches (Popham and Reid....well worth the 45 minute ride). Enjoy antiquing, museums, summer fairs, markets and special events including performances at Bowdoin Summer Music Festival and Maine State Theater in Brunswick. A variety of seafood and other restaurants are 5-30 minutes away, many in picturesque locations. Right in Cundy's Harbor you can enjoy our local Holbrook Wharf Restaurant, a gift shop, photography gallery, and two small general stores.
From our windows you can watch the lobstermen, the recreational boaters, the birds and Maine ocean life including seals, eagles, osprey and more.
Other Activities: Fabulous kayaking (launch from our water's edge), canoeing, boating, nature walks.
