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.

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 Friendship

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.

Great cabin with beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the Shooting Star cabin. It was very clean, beds comfy and close to everything in the Central coast area. We loved going on a working lobster boat, seeing the eclipse from the deck and walking our dogs to the little beach down the road. We remembered to bring our own linens, but had to buy paper products while there(toilet paper).

It was relaxing to watch the lobsterman in the am check their catch. My only issue was the traffic, we didn't know there was another driveway in front of the cabin and that much of the traffic turns around to go to the little beach right at the corner in front. The landscape does allow for privacy.

The owner is really nice, and very accommodating if needed. We met him, his family and family dog. There is a lot of family history associated with the area. We investigated the trails that are a 1/2mile down the road that take you up to the pond and all around Martin Point!

It was a great week.

Very nice cottage on water front

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice and the view is beautiful, easy access to the beach. Linens and towels are not provided so we had to buy some as we didn't have the right size. On rainy days, the house is a bit humid but the fire stove is helpful. Overall we had a very nice stay.

Georgious views and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Quaint log cabin directly on a quiet bay. Very clean and owner was very quick to remedy any problems. Just wish I had known I needed to supply bed linens and towels, but owner provided once we realized I was traveling from Arizona without linens. Nice wooded trails and sand beach within a short walk. Lobster pot provided was put to frequent use. A pleasant retreat.

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.
