About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 4 Sleeps

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. 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, Frisbee, 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation for my family of four. The house was charming and the owners thought of everything. The sunrise and sentset over the water were beautiful. I felt the house was conveniently located to nearby harbor towns. Very reasonably priced and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend and we are hoping for a return visit next summer. Thanks again!!

It's a lovely location on the St George's River with privacy. Everything was set up when we arrived. And we enjoyed the nature, the view, and the comfort.

Excellent house that is right on the water.

The house has everything you need for cooking. Towels, sheets, etc. The only thing that was missing was a hairdryer.

My husband and I felt we really lucked out when we walked in this cottage. It was definitely better than the pictures.

The view of the tidal river is beautiful, and extremely peaceful. The location is perfect as you feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere, enjoying this quiet house with a view; and yet you are only 10 minutes from Rockland. The owners have made the house very convenient for renters, and have tried to anticipate what you might need, including the lobster pot. We would definitely come again, if it's available.

Peaceful and relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We made a decision mid-week to head up to Maine for the upcoming weekend. Gloria was extremely responsive and accommodating with our last minute reservation, and made sure that the entire rental process went smoothly. The house itself is at the end of a quiet road with stunning lake views. It is equipped with everything you might need for a relaxing weekend. While it was just two of us and our small dog, the house could easily accommodate more people very comfortably as the layout is perfect for socializing. There was a lot of wildlife passing by in the yard, including deer which were nice to see. We did notice a few ticks on our dog, presumably from the taller grass by the lake, so just something to be mindful of if staying with pets. If you want to get out for a bit, the house is close to a number of local wineries, as well as some great seafood spots. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon! Thanks again for a perfect weekend!!
