About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 8

The Shooting Star is a wonderful log cabin located 75 feet from the ocean nestled in the charming town of Friendship. Watch the lobster men grab the haul of the day, or a sail boat catch a strong wind. Join them! Rent a kayak in town and paddle to one of the many islands for a picnic lunch. Read a book while the ocean splashes at your feet and the kids are searching for crabs and star fish along the coast line. Bird watching is plentiful. The blue heron, loons, and the rare bald eagle can all be found. Community tennis courts are a short walk up the road and are free for your use.

Friendship is located 16 miles south of Rockland, where you will find many small shops, movie theaters, concerts, golf and fabulous restaurants like the New York Times highly rated Primo. Visit the Farnsworth Museum which is rich in treasures always featuring one of America’s most prominent artist Andrew Wyeth. There is plenty to do or just simply relax. .

Check Down East Magazine for the latest ..: Rockland is rich with activities including the infamous Lobster Festival, a Blues Festival and a world class boat show each summer.

About Michael Flagiello

In 1896 Uncle Charlie discovered 6 acres of pristine shoreline frontage. The Shooting Star sits on the waters edge on the north side of that property. In the 1960's our grandparents sold the parcel to the Harvey's which constructed this home. We bought it back and renovated it in 2007 and will keep it forever in our family.

Michael Flagiello purchased this house in 2007

Why Michael Flagiello chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

The Shooter is private but yet close to everything you want in a waterside vacation. Rent kayaks at the Outsiders Inn, or go to Primo for an incredible dinner created by a world renowned chef. Read a book, or go fishing. Free phone, cable and wifi. Watch the sun rises and sunsets. There is a walking trail and tennis courts on Martin Point road.

Ocean Front Log Cabin
average rating of 3.0 based on 1 reviews

Suitable for 4

  • 3 of 5

Although the cabin does sleep 8, the living area is small. It would be comfortable for 4 people or 2 adults and children.

There were a couple of issues. Food froze in the refrigerator and the gas stove didn't work, leaving us cold during a rainy, damp day.

The owners were accommodating and pleasant. Leaving a bottle of wine was a nice touch, and coming by to give us hints on thea area was thoughtful.

I am very familiar with the area, so enjoyed going to places of interest and local lobster haunts.

The kayaking is wonderful out in Mascongus Bay. The beach to put in is down the road, so you will have to drive the short distance to put in.

If the seating area was enlarged and appliances fixed, I would have given this a much higher rating.
