Come and discover Puffin’s Cove, located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the historic & picturesque, seafaring town of Thomaston, Maine bordering Rockland. A short two minute drive brings you into the town of Rockland. Or drive down the penninsula on Route 131 to beaches, docks where live lobster is sold right off the boat; or down to Port Clyde where you can take in a day or evening cruise on the Monhegan boat line. From Puffin's Cove, it is a short walk to the river where you can take a picturesque stroll along the river to the working harbor. At the town landing there are picnic tables where you can enjoy a boxed lunch or go over to the Slipway Restaurant by the water, where you can enjoy a meal of fabulous Maine Lobster or other seafood. It is also walking distance to the library, churches, grocery store, café/restaurant, lounge bar, post office and shops.

Puffin's Cove is a spacious, 1200 sqft, 2 bedroom, tastefully decorated and appointed apartment. The unit is situated on the 2nd floor of our New Englander style home, which is surrounded by beautiful mature trees and landscaping, and sits atop a small hill. It offers off-street parking adjacent to the driveway, and its own completely private entrance and deck. The 8x12 deck with its Adirondack style chairs and table, is a charming spot for relaxing, and also provides a perfect view of the night sky for star gazing. As you enter the unit, you come upon a beautiful private foyer and staircase with elegant, 1800’s period, mahogany railing, leading up to the second floor.

At the top of the stairs to the right, you will find the tastefully decorated living room with its large panoramic windows. The living room offers a large comfortable sofa which makes watching a movie on the 32 inch color TV; priceless family entertainment.

Adjacent to the recliner is a small table with a reading lamp; a perfect spot for curling up with a good book or just relaxing and taking a nap.. Enjoy the scenic view of historic Montpelier Mansion-General Henry Knox Museum, from the living room day or night.

The beautiful honey-pine, random width wood plank floors remind you of an earlier time, rich in history. The built-in bookcase on the opposite side of the room is stocked with interesting books, puzzles and games for a fun evening of relaxing entertainment.

This bedroom also features a large full length mahogany dresser with mirror and matching 2 drawer chest, as well as a spacious closet. All beds (master and guest) are outfitted with fine high quality linens and fabrics. Also evident in this room are the honey-pine, random width plank wood floors. Enjoy the views of the grounds, from the large panoramic windows. There are room-darkening blinds on the windows for privacy, and to produce a serene atmosphere to help you float off to sleep.

After a rewarding career in clinical/pharmaceutical research, I am now a retired entreprenuer. I love Maine, its beauty and all it has to offer, especially here along the MidCoast. I love to paint in watercolor, garden, spend time with my grandchildren and meet interesting new people.

G. Barreto purchased this apartment in 2005

We came to Mid-Coast Maine on vacation one summer, and fell in love with the historic, picturesque town of Thomaston and its friendly and welcoming residents. We were also impressed by the abundance and richness of the activities one could avail. At a later date, we found this wonderful, majestic 5 bedroom home set on a small hill on ¾ acres and decided to purchase it. We wanted to share our home as a vacation rental, so people could experience all that the Mid-Coast has to offer, with its live performances, live music, museums, art galleries and festivals abundant in downtown Thomaston, Rockland, & Camden and other surrounding areas of Mid-Coast Maine. In 2010, I began renovations to convert the second floor into an apartment with its own private entrance.

This exquisite apartment, has all the modern conveniences, is centrally located and perfect for the vacation or corporate traveler that needs easy access to Downtown Thomaston, Rockland, Camden and surrounding mid-coast areas. Situated near the border between Rockland and Thomaston and with easy access to Route 1, you are in Rockland in a couple of minutes. It is also walking distance to the library, churches, grocery store, café/restaurant, lounge bar, post office and shops.

Memorable Stay!

  • Submitted: Apr 3, 2014

We came over from the UK for our son's wedding and were provided with a home from home.
We were made very welcome and were provided with everything that we needed to make our stay as wonderful and memorable as possible.
Hopefully, some time in the future, we will be back to visit Maine and our new in-laws, and Puffins Cove would be our location of choice to stay for that visit.

We so enjoyed our week at Puffin's cove. It met our every expectations with its spacious and comfortable accommodations, as well as its central location to so many of the midcoast attractions. Of particular note, we enjoyed an interesting tour of Montpelier mansion. It's a convenient stop for the history buff.
Thank you for opening your lovely home to travelers. It's truly been our home-away-from-home this week.

Wonderful Mid-Coast accommodations!

We've been vacationing in Maine for many years and can honestly say this was one of the most comfortable, homey and well equipped accommodations we've rented. It was quite spacious and very clean, both inside and on the well maintained grounds. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and the large bathroom even contained a washer and dryer.

The location was ideal for accessing many of the mid-coast points-of-interest, including museums in Rockland and Owls Head, day sailing out of Rockland and Camden, local parks and scenic sites. The beautiful and historic Montpelier, home of Henry Knox first Secretary of War under George Washington sits within view of Puffins Cove. We had an interesting tour of this home where Knox lived from 1795 to 1806. Our host provided lots of helpful information about the area attractions, restaurants and seasonal events.

We had a wonderful stay at Puffins Cove and would recommend highly!

This was our first visit to Maine, for a wedding. My husband and I shared the apartment with our son and daughter-in-law and had enough space to be very comfortable together. We had shared and private spaces, which was wonderful. The amenities are tremendous-all we needed were clothes and food. The location was perfect for us. In fact, the entire situation was ideal. Grizel was an excellent hostess, being helpful but not in the way. Would I rent again? Definitely a huge YES.
