Perfect place, perfect accomodations!
Perfect place, perfect accomodations!
If you're looking for a quaint, quiet, comfortable spot to vacation or use as a base for work operations, we highly recommend this choice. It is perfectly appointed with every convenience for the most comfortable stay. Everything from the high-end bath towels and bedding to the coffee maker will ensure you never experience a blip in your daily routine. Want to cook a lobster boil? All of the cooking accoutrements are there, just add fresh food. The cleanliness and simplicity of this beautiful boathouse also have the added bonus of washer/dryer, full size refrigerator, gorgeous view of the cove, convenience of restaurants & groceries and quaint walking neighborhood. If you're fortunate enough to be here when the owners are here, sculling lessons are an option. These folks are true treasures and were certainly a huge part of our perfect Maine experience. If you're looking for comfort, convenience, a total package deal, look no further. There is nothing but positive hidden surprises that await you at this amazing boathouse.

About the owner: Long-time wooden boat-builder, sculler, rowing coach and author of the award-winning book, Rowable Classics, Darryl Strickler welcomes you to The Boathouse at 46 Water Street in Thomaston, Maine. Come for a few days, or a few weeks, or a few months and enjoy Mid-Coast Maine and row with us on the St. Georges, on nearby lakes or just relax and enjoy your favorite activities.
Why the Owner Chose Thomaston:
We wanted a boathouse ON the water, so the choice was easy!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property has the dual advantage of being close to everything, but off the tourist track and very quiet at night. There is first-class, uncrowded restaurant and cafe within walking distance in a quaint seafaring town that was founded in 1605. Museums and shops are nearby.
