Long-time wooden boat-builder, sculler, rowing coach and author of the award-winning book, Rowable Classics, Darryl Strickler welcomes you to The Boathouse at 46 Water Street in Thomaston, Maine. Come for a few days, or a few weeks, or a few months and enjoy Mid-Coast Maine and row with us on the St. Georges, on nearby lakes or just relax and enjoy your favorite activities.
We wanted a boathouse ON the water, so the choice was easy!
The property has the dual advantage of being close to everything, but off the tourist track and very quiet at night. There is first-class, uncrowded restaurant and cafe within walking distance in a quaint seafaring town that was founded in 1605. Museums and shops are nearby.
Sculling boats (racing shells and open-water rowing shells) available by special arrangement to qualified individuals.
