I am a real estate agent and own investment properties. The cottage is intended to be a retirement refuge. In the mean time it is great fun to share with many guests who love it as we do.

Elaine Hall purchased this cottage in 1982

This cottage is the perfect hide-away. Quiet and beautiful, a real escape. Excitement and entertainment is within a short drive. We are pet friendly and it is a safe and exciting place for good dogs to play. We have also entertained cats!

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We would highly recommend Hawkweed Cottage to friends and family. We brought our two dogs with us, and met our daughter and family there. We were thrilled by the seals, and their bellowing, and the opportunity to relax, read, stare at the sea, and kayak! The back deck is the summer family room, and the dogs and I would sit and enjoy the ocean view. Owl's Head Museum is just down the road, and a great place to visit. Great drinking water! Very clean, and well appointed! A much needed rest from stress! Thank you for great memories..................

A bit of Maine magic

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a week at Hawkweed Cottage - perfect rental in every way. Immaculate, comfortably furnished and great location. If you're looking to relax with beautiful views in an easy-going place, this is it. Everything you need is there; Rockland and other towns just a short drive away. Owners are great to deal with, too. I will definitely return.

We stayed at the cottage once before. Both times we really enjoyed the house, and the beautiful views. The place is clean and the photos are accurate. We recommend this property to others. The area is beautiful and there are lots of things to do.

The Hawkweed is a special place

  • 5 of 5
My husband an I have stayed at the Hawkweed for two years in a row, we love it! The owners are nice and easy to deal with. The cottage is just the right size for a summer getaway, it is simple and clean - not overly filled with unnecessary things. The location is great, with a nice State Park (great place to swim) and just a down the road, and Rockland is very close. The yard and porch are great for morning coffee or reading a book in the sun with a beautiful view. Bring your kayaks - you can go right from the back yard and explore the cove. It is a special little place!

Owner's Response: The Hawkweed Cottage seems to provide guests with just what they need. Being at waters edge is so therapeutic and in any weather it is just beautiful. Vacations should be easy and fuss free. Sandy feet, wet paws, no problem! Come back time and again and enjoy.

Nice location (secluded and overlooking a quiet harbor) and near things to do

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at Hawkweed in August of 2010. The location is nice -secluded and quiet. Close to Rockland and Camden so there's lots to do away from the property. The owner was easy to deal with.

Honestly, we (parents and a 12 year old) were a little disappointed when we first got there. We actually thought of going home. The house is smaller than expected and unfinished in areas (insulation hanging out etc.). It reminded me more of a hunting lodge than a vacation home. The deck is the best part of the house. You can sit on the deck and watch the lobster boats come and go -that was nice. The description lists a large yard but it was smaller than we expected.

There are roughly 20? steps leading down to a grassy /muddy / rocky shore (typical for the area). You could launch your kayak from here but it would be a haul getting it back up. Doable but not what you might expect. However, there is a beautiful park (one of the nicest I've seen) a short drive away. That was really special -quintessential Maine.

There is a small general store about 15 minutes (driving) down the road.

We enjoyed parts of our stay for the most part but will not repeat Hawkweed.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that our guest was not entirely satisfied. In 8 years we have not had any unfavorable reviews. More than half our guests are repeats. Each year we try to make improvements and upgrades to the cottage in order to provide value; we are not the Samoset! We wish this traveler better luck somewhere else next year.
