                                    We had a wonderful visit to Maine. The Boathouse was perfect for my husband and I. Beautiful view of the harbor and very clean. We would love to stay here again in the future! The owner couldn't have been any more helpful and friendly, he was great!

                                    The boathouse on the water is just that a boathouse on the water. The accommodations were excellent and our host was gracious and friendly. His collection of wooden sculls is amazing! Four of us stayed here and we all highly recommend it to anyone interested in place that is off the beaten path, quiet, and very comfortable.

                                    The apartment is great. Perfectly clean, comfortable, quiet, with a covered terrace, so we could sit there, sipping wine and enjoy a beautiful view even when it was raining. The town of Thomaston is very nice: Victorian houses, couple of art galleries, cozy cafes. We were glad that we stayed there and hope we will come back one day. Listing description and pictures are completely accurate. The owner is friendly, easy to reach while making a reservation and helpful answering questions when we were there.

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: 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 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.
