Peaceful, relaxing 3-bedroom 2-bathroom home on Sheepscot River

We have a queen bed on the first floor; double bed upstairs as well as a twin bed in the third bedroom located upstairs. Our home privately sleeps 5 but a 6th space is available on a comfortable twin pull-out couch in our upstairs loft. Fully equipped kitchen with oven, stovetop, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle and cooking basics. We keep olive oil, vinegar, condiments and tea and coffee stocked. We have two full bathrooms and a washer/dryer if you need it.
Our spacious deck overlooking the Sheepscot River provides glorious views. Many birds live in our area - including a pileated woodpecker!

Central to explore the coast!
What a great experience! Carol was so gracious and accommodating...we arrived late in the evening and she even had a few groceries available to us for the first morning. This home is central to exploring from Bar Harbor, Camden (don't miss!!), BoothBay Harbor and down to Kennebunkport. All of those towns are within two hours of the home. It is tucked away and get ready...sunrise is gorgeous!!! There is a downstairs bedroom if a member of your party can't do stairs! This was such a great first time spot to venture through Maine...and the cutest town of all is right at your doorstep! Wiscasset is just a few minutes and has a host of restaurants and adorable shops! Wiscasset also boasts the best lobster roll in Maine--grab at Reds--it's true! It's the best! We couldn't be happier with these accommodations...clean, comfortable and convenient!
The property is better than it shows
Beautiful setting. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Everything we needed was there. The Lobster COOP in walking distance was a fantastic way to get our lobster to cook and it was fabulous.
So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Please - come again!
Just as advertised
My wife and I spent 5 days at this cottage during the middle of September. We have stayed at multiple VRBO rentals over the years, and our only expectation is that the reality matches the advertising. Rocky Road does that. Everything is clean and everything works.
The property is quite secluded; the driveway is 50 yards or so past where the black top ends, so it is both private and quiet; yet it's an easy drive into Wiscasset.
The air is clean and breezes off the lake and through the many windows kept us very comfortable. (As did the mattress on the downstairs bed.)
If you like what you see in the VRBO description (and we did), I can't imagine why you wouldn't enjoy your stay here. We did.
Lovely house in wonderfully secluded yet convenient location!
We absolutely loved our stay on Rocky Road - thank you!
Thanks so much - it was a pleasure to host you! Please come again!
Wonderful family vacation
We were so impressed with this home. Carol was an absolute pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond to make our stay spectacular! We were welcomed with milk in the frig & coffee to start us off on the right foot ;) The hand made soaps for each sink were a very nice touch. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever had in a vrbo house (even the sleeper sofa)!! We loved spending time on the dock. The lobster boats going by every morning were so cool. This home was in a great location. Our family fell in love with Maine on this vacation.
It was a complete pleasure to host you and your family!
