Yellow cottage with stunning views on Pleasant Beach, in South Thomaston, Maine

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Adorable classic Maine cottage sleeps four. A brand new adjacent bungalow accommodates an additional two people for an extra charge of $250.00(a great place for the kids to sleep and hang out!).

The cottage has a newly renovated kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen features all-new appliances with modern amenities. There is no kitchen table, however. We have a fully outfitted bathroom with new fixtures. Upstairs, there is a double bedroom and a single bedroom. You walk through the double room in order to get to the single room. There is one single downstairs. The living room has comfy furniture with a lovely gas fireplace for those rare chilly summer mornings. Wi-fi is included.

The screened-in porch, which overlooks the Gulf of Maine, features a family-sized table for dining on soft summer evenings. Attached is a small deck with a grill for you to enjoy. Two kayaks are available too. During the day, luxuriate on the warm rocks a few steps away or take the short path down to Pleasant Beach for swimming, snorkeling, crab-hunting, fishing, and sun-worshipping.

The cottage boasts a stunning view of the bay. Watch lobstermen ply their trade as children climb the rocks along this secluded coastline. No crowds here.

Nearby seafood shacks and restaurants in the area are well known, or if you're nice to the local fisherman, you might have fresh lobster brought directly to your front door.

Located 10 minutes from Rockland, 10 minutes from Owls Head, 25 minutes from Camden Hills State Park and near many mid-coast attractions.

We also welcome a well-behaved dog for a small fee, but this is a cat-free, no-smoking property.

I am happy to answer any questions about our wonderful Maine cottage.

Where the forest meets the sea

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was one of the best trips we have shared in all our travels. The cottage is located close to so many attractions do not even know where to start. We ate the most incredible sea food ever, the town of Rockland was a gem. You will not find a better view anywhere. Hope your stay will be as amazing as ours was.

Really enjoyed this coastal cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in early July 2017 and couldn't have been happier with it. The screen porch was fantastic and we enjoyed sitting out on it as it has a great view of the water and the cove the house sits in. The kayaks were an awesome perk and we took advantage of them. There are several neat islands close by to kayak around and one of them (Ash Island) has been turned into a preserve that you can get out and walk around on. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bed we slept on upstairs was comfortable. The house is in a great location and only 15 minutes or so away from Rockland. Since we got back from Maine we have been telling all of our friends and family they should visit and if any of them do I would absolutely recommend they stay at this cottage.

Beautiful scenery, accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to come to, to get away from it all and enjoy all the beauty coastal Maine has to offer. Water usage can be a bit of a issue with more then two or three people, but I knew the water restrictions before I booked, its all part of the cabin experience. Laura is great with communications and ready with answers for any questions you may have. Thank you for the experience.

Absolutely breath taking

  • 5 of 5

Place was clean and had everything you would need. Private street so no traffic unless you lived there. Breath taking who needs TV. Sat for hours and read by the bay listening to the water and the birds. We will visit again.

Peaceful, quiet location but still near some quaint little towns. Loved having breakfast every morning on the porch overlooking the water. Cozy and accommodating. Laura was available for any questions that we had.
