About the property

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

Located on an island with woodsy privacy, a path to our private deep-water dock and within 10 minutes of Route 1, our home welcomes you to Mid-Coast Maine.

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!

Two sandy-beaches, many shops, restaurants and galleries, as well as a fully-stocked grocery store are all within 10 - 30 minutes from Rocky Road. Portland, the largest city near us, is an easy hour's drive with all of it's cultural offerings.

Spacious, comfy and peaceful stay in Maine.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 children (4 and 3) from England for a week and absolutely loved it. The property has lots of space and the beds are very comfy. It had everything we needed in it.

The property itself is near the town of Wiscassett which is a lovely little place. Although near Wiscassett town, this property is in a rural area surrounded by trees and overlooking a river. It is totally peaceful and you aren't overlooked by neighbours. There is lots of garden space and some wildlife - we saw chipmunks, red squirrels and even had a deer in the garden one morning!

Carol was wonderful....very helpful with any questions we had and responds very quickly.

Thank you for a great holiday and we will be back!

Great home on the water - great view, very private

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and was exactly as I was expecting. The view is as good as it gets and the setting is very quiet and private. We had one minor issue with the water heater, but the owners were on it right away and resolved it. Would definitely stay here again if we come to the area.

Central to explore the coast!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

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.
