Lovely spacious home, huge master bedroom!!! Home is close to a beautiful quarry.
Spacious, comfortable house in a great area
We really enjoyed our time at Tim's property and everyone commented on what a nice place it was.
The house was conveniently located just outside of Tenant's Harbor and a fairly short (10-15 minute) drive to Thomaston and Rockland. There was ample room for all of us, even when our kids arrived with their kids. Plenty of space and common areas on both floors. Upstairs bedrooms are quite spacious. Two baths with showers (and tubs) makes it a little easier for getting up and started each day without being in each other's way. Kitchen is modern, well stocked and large enough to accommodate a crowd. Dishwasher, washer & dryer are always appreciated.
The house was well cleaned, lawn mowed when we arrived. Tim was available and responsive when we had questions.
We love mid-coast Maine and we were glad to be a little closer to Rockland this year. We loved going over to Drift Inn Beach (water was very nice, but tides dictate how much beach is available), Marshall Point Lighthouse is quintessential Maine, enjoyed the scenery and driving the peninsula with trips to Spruce Head, Owl's Head, Clark Island, as well as going to Thomaston.
We went to the Olsen Farm in Cushing and enjoyed the intimate talk by Andrew Wyeth's nephew ... it's given every week and avaible through the Farnsworth. Montpelier has a lot of history and is worth a visit, if you haven't been there.
There's such easy access to Camden, Belfast and Rockport,. ...just up the road. Rockland just seems to get better with every year with it's shops, restaurants, galleries, museums and seaside activity.
We particularly liked McLoon's lobster shack (great food and perfect setting), the Happy Clam (unassuming, but very good food and family friendly), Cafe Miranda with it's great food, huge and diverse menu. ... it's a perennial favorite, Harjula's Dairy Bar with outstanding sunset views over the St. George River, Schoolhouse Bakery for sweet treats. And who knew that there would be a Luke's Lobster just down the road in Tenant's Harbor ? The Eat Wind Inn is nice, too.
We we're lucky to have great summer weather (no need for long pants or sweatshirts the whole week), though there is plenty to do in case it rains including board games and books in the house. Managed to finish a book from the bookshelves, even with the good weather and all the competing activity.
We heartily recommend !!! Time very well spent.
Enjoyed the stay
Our stay was great. Tim is a an amazing host.
Great Maine Hideaway!
The home was extraordinarily nice. Owner has remodeled an old quarry store into a beautiful home. There was lots of room and accommodations were great. Kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes and spices, etc. This was a great location to allow us to go to all our Maine coastal favorite spots. A local lobsterman is able to provide lobsters to renters of this house for $5.50-$5.75/lb. currently. That was a great plus for us since my spouse likes 2/day when in Maine. We loved our stay here and highly recommend this rental.
Beautiful, Private House
The house was just as described, with plenty of space to hang out—two living rooms, a public deck and a private little deck off of one of the bedrooms. One person can read while others watch Tv while others play games at the kitchen table, making it great for groups or families with children of different ages.
The location was a little isolated. You aren’t right on the middle of the action like you would be if you stayed in town, but that means you can enjoy the evening quiet. And you’re still only 15 minutes from Rockland, which has everything you’d need. Camden is only 10 minutes further. Boothbay is an hour’s drive.
Perfect for a family gathering
Clean, sunny home. We were up for a family event - five people slept in the house but we had other family over for a cookout, played bocce ball, played cards at the dining room table. Great space for spending time with family and plenty of room to hide from family!! We had a great time. And Tim was terrific! Highly recommend!!
