Live theater right in town, as well as in surrounding area. Catch the clam hod relay races on Waldoboro Day. Local seafood, and Maine blueberries in summer. Live music, fun museums, and miles of rocky coast. Enjoy stunning sunsets from the front porch.

How nice to snuggle up by the living room fire on a cold night. The winter sunsets were brilliantly colorful. A restful winter vacation, with time enough to watch movies and read by the fire. The snow was very deep, and it was hard to get out the the grocery store. But inside we had plenty of room to bake cookies, create interesting family dinners, and work on our hobbies.
Nice after-Christmas sales in our favorite Rockland stores, Sea Street Graphics, Seagull Cottage, and Grasshopper!
Our fourth year here, and looking forward to 2015! Morning coffee on the porch or in the sunny kitchen, close enough to many fun things to do, yet far enough from the tourist traffic. A welcome place to come back to after treasure hunting, or a day at the beach! The owners are wonderful people! Highly recommend as a great place to stay!
Our family of three stayed in this lovely, spacious older home. All systems worked fine. We burned a few logs in the Russian stove one cool morning, but most days were 78 to 88 degrees. Would recommend to friends and family. We return every year.
Found some great bargains at Montsweag Flea Market in Woolwich. Bought lobsters in Friendship for $3 per pound! Enjoyed the sun and water at Birch Point Beach State Park in Owls Head, Damariscotta Lake in Jefferson, and Martin’s Point Beach in Friendship. We watched videos found in the media library, in the evenings and on the occasional rainy day. Explored Fort William Henry at Colonial Pemaquid Historic Site in New Harbor. Would love to try kayaking in the many wetlands we saw. Bought souvenirs at the Friendship Day craft show, but missed the lobster boat races. More bargains at Big Al’s odd lot store in Wiscasset. Browsed the Rockland Antiques Exchange and the used books stores in Rockland. Returned home tired but happy,
Lots to do around the area. Many beds for a big group. Grill in poor shape and only one burner on stove top worked which makes cooking challenging. Nice view with no access to water.
This is a fabulous Maine house with plenty of room and lots of books for young and old. Our three year old grandson could have stayed at the house with all its attractions and never even missed the beaches. (Although, we definitely enjoyed the nearby beaches.) The location was perfect - close to good places to eat (Moody's) and great places to visit. (Booth Bay Harbor) Where else can you enjoy peacocks in the yard? The owners were terrific and went far out of their way to insure everything was perfect. This would be a great place to enjoy off season as well.
claire runs a great rental most things are labeled so you know where they are the chest with the maps and brochures was most helpful house was very clean and very well equipped abundant supply of firewood and books and dvds for a rainy day the neighbors were very friendly and even let my nieces milk their cow we would definately stay there again
Family size 5 bedroom house with fireplace, near rocky and sandy beaches and town boat landing, a ferry to Vinalhaven Island, close to Boothbay Harbor, Bath, Wiscasset and Damariscotta. Antique shops too numerous to mention. Waldoboro boasts an alpaca farm, and its own live theater. Fresh local seafood outlets and dockside lobster feasts ... or more conventional restaurants too. Kayak rentals are available on our street.
Don't miss Waldoboro Day and the clam hod races in June!
