HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for 2 weeks. We arrived to find everything ready for us. The house is beautiful and is much bigger than it looks in the pictures! It's on a wooded street, & the neighborhood is lovely! There are houses dotted along the street, but you feel like you are alone in the woods, & it's wonderful!!

We had more than enough room for the 3 of us. The house could easily accommodate several more people. The master bedroom & smaller bedroom with a futon bed as well as a full bath are on the 3rd floor. The master bedroom is huge & has a large closet. Our 12 year old stayed in the other room across from us. The main floor is the middle floor which is on the street level. The kitchen, dining area, living area, bathroom and another good sized bedroom are on this floor. The bottom floor has a huge living area and very large laundry room & has a lovely view of the trees behind the house. There are a lot of stairs as this is a 3 story home, but it kept us in shape!! The owners kept in touch to make sure that we had everything we needed.

The house is a 5 minute drive to Camden, 5 minutes or less depending on which part of Rockport & 10 minutes to Rockland. We had a lovely stay and plan to return if they'll have us back!! Our son loved it so much that he asked if we could buy the house and move there permanently! This really felt like home to us. I'd highly recommend the cottage!!

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
My family and I highly recommend this property having just returned from a seventeen-day stay.
Peter our host was very professional from the outset, responding quickly and efficiently to my many questions.
The house has a lovely homely feel to it. It is impressively larger than the pictures portray. The sprawling lounge area on the ground floor proved to be a perfect haven for our two daughters, with cable TV and free wifi. The basement laundry room hosted a ‘giant’ (compared to the UK) washer and tumble dryer, which we made full use of.
Situated on a quiet lane surrounded by woods, we enjoyed lots of pleasant walks from the house all around the area. Rockport and Camden are minutes away by car, as is a large supermarket.
We travelled easily around Maine and into New Hampshire. New England is a very special place. The foliage was spectacular.
If you’re looking for a property with a touch of quality, convenient located, clean and tidy with a perfect host, you’ve just found it!

WONDEFUL SPOT

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful vacation home. I have been meaning to write this review for several months and just need to share what a great home this was. It looks even better in person then it did in the photos. We are a family of four with a teenager and a toddler. We had plenty of space and privacy for all. We were in town for a family reunion and had ample room for a large gathering one evening, as well. The owners were right around the corner if we needed them, yet left us to our own. We loved that it was removed from the crowds, quiet and peaceful- yet close enough to Rockland, Camden and Thomaston where other family members were staying. We highly recommend this cottage and look forward to a return visit.

VERY NICE STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend. The house was perfect for us and just as nice as it appears in the photos. We were not disappointed at all. Camden is just a couple of minutes away and we took advantage of the great restaurants and shops. The weather wasn't the greatest and we are very much looking forward to returning during the warmer season. Thank you Peter!!
