A memorable family vacation in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is very cosey and all you need for a simple vacation on the Maine coast. We chose the Rockland area as a convenient location for our siblings to join us during the week and it worked out perfectly. Our dog also had a great time exploring the area.
The view from the backyard of the bay is breathtaking and it is nice to hear the old lobster boats chugging to and from their moorings. We did not swim or paddle in the bay but we did explore at low tide and collected mussels which we cooked for supper the following day. There is a great beach park nearby for swimming.
Rockland is a good sized town with plenty to do. We were lucky as it was the local Lobsterfest week so we enjoyed some good eating and musical entertainment.
The whole area is made up of nice driveable places to go and visit including towns, lighthouses and mountains to hike. We ventured as far as Acadia National Park which is about 2 hours to the north.
The owners where very friendly. Elaine was easy to deal with and her husband stopped by a couple of times once we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.

Would definitely consider staying again if we come back to this area.

Maine Magic

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from two glorious weeks at the Hawkweed Cottage. This was my third visit, and it gets better every time. The home is immaculate, comfortable, and secluded - a private oasis along the Maine coast. The home is just as pictured, and the owners take very good care of the property. The owners have also taken care to make sure that the home has all the necessities for a nice vacation. The best feature of Hawkweed is, of course, the view from the deck. It is simple perfection of nature - sitting having coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening - watching the sun rise or set, hearing the lobster boats hum in the morning or the loons in the evening. A perfect setting for relaxing. There is a nice swimming beach within a 5 minute drive. Hawkweed is a great location for exploring the surrounding area - great restaurants in Rockland and Camden, Camden Hills State Park for hiking, and it's not a bad drive to Acadia - even for a day trip. It was always a wonderful feeling coming back to Hawkweed at the end of a busy day. My pooch loved sitting on the deck, taking the sun and snoozing under the table in the shade. I love it and plan to return same time next year. Highly recommended.

Excellent vacation!

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.
