Property type house


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Beautiful Mid-Coast Maine

Located in South Thomaston

Escape the hot, sticky city to sit atop the picturesque St. Georges River in the backyard of this charming 2 bedroom, 1-1/2 bath cottage for a relaxing and blissful vacation. Strategically situated at the end of a private road the only thing between you and the water are a few tranquil steps. The tidal river recedes twice daily. At low tide, watch the local clammers sift through the muddy river bottom searching for a hearty dozen steamers for dinner. The large lawn overlooks the river and is a perfect place for a friendly game of Croquet, Frisbee, Bacci Ball or Badminton.

House sleeps four with two single beds and one full. But there is plenty of room for a few extra in sleeping bags.

Within 10 minutes of downtown Rockland and within 20 minutes of picturesque Port Clyde, Tenant's Harbor, Rockport and more. The sandy beach of Drift Inn beach is a short drive down the road.

An easy trip from the West Coast -- fly Jet Blue or Virgin America direct from LAX to Boston, rent a car and make the beautiful drive North approximately 3 1/2 hours. Or, fly into JFK for a short stop over, then on to Portland, Maine to rent a car and drive the 1 1/2 hours into town. There is a one car garage and plenty of room for more cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gloria,

Thanks to you and your family for all the great info in the area. We have had a great time. We just got back from a sunset cruise on the Heron, definitely a highlight. The air bed worked great.

Thanks again for this being such an easy rental experience.

Great pet friendly cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, clean place with wonderful river views. There's a great lawn for dogs or kids to play on, but be aware that it's unfenced. Kitchen is well stocked. Although there are two bedrooms, this is probably a better place for a family with children rather than two couples, since one bedroom is much bigger than the other.

adoreable, perfect setting

  • 4 of 5

this house was awesome, away from neighbors but yet they are there, ,gorgeous view of the water, fully equipped and homey and just a great place. My only minor complaint was no gas in grill, but owner took care of that immediately, but too late for our steaks and could not sit out in the back at night, too many mosquitos, the front of

the house was fine. We cooked an amazing lobstah dinner one night. Thank you to the owners.!

Great location and Comfy Home

  • 5 of 5

Found the house to be like a lodge with a very homey feel. Location was great and the view was great. We experienced great sunsets, and the weather was wonderful. The 2 baths was a plus, had everything you could want.

Amazing location for a quiet vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house, lots of room for our family of three, we liked it a lot. The location is amazing for a relaxing vacation. It's quiet by the river, yet not too far away from Rockland and the sights around like beaches and lighthouses. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Gloria!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation for my family of four. The house was charming and the owners thought of everything. The sunrise and sentset over the water were beautiful. I felt the house was conveniently located to nearby harbor towns. Very reasonably priced and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend and we are hoping for a return visit next summer. Thanks again!!
