South Thomaston cottage description

Our secluded cottage faces south overlooking the bay, islands, and working lobster boats. The front deck is ideal for lunching, sunning, and watching nature at play and joins a grassed lawn perfect for games. A hammock under the pines is for quiet time. Stay cozy on a cool evening with a small gas stove.

A short drive will take you to all the festivals Rockland has each summer weekends as well as the Camden/Rockport harbors, home to the schooner fleet. A nautical museum, general store/cafe, post office, library and great fishing are within walking distance. Launch your kayak and explore the shoreline.

              About the owner: I am a real estate agent and own investment properties. The cottage is intended to be a retirement refuge. In the mean time it is great fun to share with many guests who love it as we do.

              This cottage is the perfect hide-away. Quiet and beautiful, a real escape. Excitement and entertainment is within a short drive. We are pet friendly and it is a safe and exciting place for good dogs to play. We have also entertained cats!
