Our secluded cottage faces south overlooking the bay, islands, and working lobster boats. The front deck is ideal for lunching, sunning, and watching nature at play and joins a grassed lawn perfect for games. A hammock under the pines is for quiet time. Stay cozy on a cool evening with a small gas stove.
A short drive will take you to all the festivals Rockland has each summer weekends as well as the Camden/Rockport harbors, home to the schooner fleet. A nautical museum, general store/cafe, post office, library and great fishing are within walking distance. Launch your kayak and explore the shoreline.

I am a real estate agent and own investment properties. The cottage is intended to be a retirement refuge. In the mean time it is great fun to share with many guests who love it as we do.
Elaine Hall purchased this cottage in 1982
This cottage is the perfect hide-away. Quiet and beautiful, a real escape. Excitement and entertainment is within a short drive. We are pet friendly and it is a safe and exciting place for good dogs to play. We have also entertained cats!
Comfortable accommodations, beautiful setting with breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Very private location with no light or noise pollution - heaven. Our small dog enjoyed the yard. Very convenient location for travelling the coast of Maine, both north and south. We have already reserved for next year!
This was our second year at Hawkweed and we had a wonderful time. It's a great place for dogs and ours took full advantage of the swimming! A great place for kayaks as well. We enjoyed watching the changing view, including herons and hawks. The location allows is very private and close to nature, but just a few minutes to Rockland and great shopping, especially for seafood. Don't miss the Farnsworth, great art galleries and the Olsen House. The owners are lovely!
We returned again to our favorite escape location. Hawkweed Cottage has always been a great escape. We celebrated our 46 year Anniversary while we were there. We love watching the lobster boats leave in the morning, and return hours later. It was really magical when we were socked in by fog, and could barely see the boats as they coasted by. Dinners in Camden are always perfect, and time with our Daughter and Grandson......priceless!
We recently spent a great week at the Hawkweed Cottage and recommend it highly...we plan to return next year! The cottage has a wonderful view and everything you might need, including an oyster knife :). It is very well maintained and the owners are helpful and pleasant. Our dogs loved it, and spent plenty of time in the water. We brought our boat and there are two ramps close by, just watch the tides if you launch from So. Thomaston. There are great places to explore by boat in either direction...we went out to Eastern Egg Rock, but did not see any puffins! Next time we'll bring the kayak for sure. Lovely beaches are nearby, and many great galleries in Rockland and other villages, as well as the Farnsworth and Wyeth Center. It was a special treat to visit the Olson House in Cushing. The cottage provides a great, secluded location from which to explore and enjoy Maine!
This cottage has such amazing views from the huge deck. We were blown away when we walked around back upon arrival. We could actually see lobster boats heading out and some even checking their pots in the cove. The cottage is immaculate which shows that the owner takes great pride in Hawkweed. The only drawback for us was the lack of kitchen counter space, but with so many restaurants in nearby Rockland, only fifteen minutes away, it turned out not to be a big deal. And we loved the gas stove that kicked on when it got really cool at night. We would definitely return to Hawkweed Cottage.
The cottage is very cosey and all you need for a simple vacation on the Maine coast. We chose the Rockland area as a convenient location for our siblings to join us during the week and it worked out perfectly. Our dog also had a great time exploring the area.
The view from the backyard of the bay is breathtaking and it is nice to hear the old lobster boats chugging to and from their moorings. We did not swim or paddle in the bay but we did explore at low tide and collected mussels which we cooked for supper the following day. There is a great beach park nearby for swimming.
Rockland is a good sized town with plenty to do. We were lucky as it was the local Lobsterfest week so we enjoyed some good eating and musical entertainment.
The whole area is made up of nice driveable places to go and visit including towns, lighthouses and mountains to hike. We ventured as far as Acadia National Park which is about 2 hours to the north.
The owners where very friendly. Elaine was easy to deal with and her husband stopped by a couple of times once we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.
Would definitely consider staying again if we come back to this area.
