(See Calendar below for available dates).

Come and discover Puffin’s Cove, located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the historic & picturesque, seafaring town of Thomaston, Maine bordering Rockland. A short two minute drive brings you into the town of Rockland. Or drive down the penninsula on Route 131 to beaches, docks where live lobster is sold right off the boat; or down to Port Clyde where you can take in a day or evening cruise on the Monhegan boat line. From Puffin's Cove, it is a short walk to the river where you can take a picturesque stroll along the river to the working harbor. At the town landing there are picnic tables where you can enjoy a boxed lunch or go over to the Slipway Restaurant by the water, where you can enjoy a meal of fabulous Maine Lobster or other seafood. It is also walking distance to the library, churches, grocery store, café/restaurant, lounge bar, post office and shops.

Puffin's Cove is a spacious, 1200 sqft, 2 bedroom, tastefully decorated and appointed apartment. The unit is situated on the 2nd floor of our New Englander style home, which is surrounded by beautiful mature trees and landscaping, and sits atop a small hill. It offers off-street parking adjacent to the driveway, and its own completely private entrance and deck. The 8x12 deck with its Adirondack style chairs and table, is a charming spot for relaxing, and also provides a perfect view of the night sky for star gazing. As you enter the unit, you come upon a beautiful private foyer and staircase with elegant, 1800’s period, mahogany railing, leading up to the second floor.


LIVING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS-

At the top of the stairs to the right, you will find the tastefully decorated living room with its large panoramic windows. The living room offers a large comfortable sofa which makes watching a movie on the 32 inch color TV; priceless family entertainment. There is an inviting recliner next to a window in the far right-hand corner. Adjacent to the recliner is a small table with a reading lamp; a perfect spot for curling up with a good book or just relaxing and taking a nap.. Enjoy the scenic view of historic Montpelier Mansion-General Henry Knox Museum, from the living room day or night.
The beautiful honey-pine, random width wood plank floors remind you of an earlier time, rich in history. The built-in bookcase on the opposite side of the room is stocked with interesting books, puzzles and games for a fun evening of relaxing entertainment.


MASTER BEDROOM HIGHLIGHTS-

The expansive master bedroom features a luxuriously comfortable Queen Size bed with dual side tables & lamps. This bedroom also features a large full length mahogany dresser with mirror and matching 2 drawer chest, as well as a spacious closet. All beds (master and guest) are outfitted with fine high quality linens and fabrics. Also evident in this room are the honey-pine, random width plank wood floors. Enjoy the views of the grounds, from the large panoramic windows. There are room-darkening blinds on the windows for privacy, and to produce a serene atmosphere to help you float off to sleep.


GUEST BEDROOM HIGHLIGHTS-

The guest bedroom features a Queen Size bed with side table and lamp, a wicker chair, and plush carpeting. There is a large 10’ closet with full length, mirrored, folding doors.


KITCHEN & DINING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS

There is dual access to the kitchen from both the living room and the hallway. The efficient fully equipped Kitchen (should you want to cook) features a 26 cf. refrigerator equipped with automatic ice maker, a dishwasher, electric range/oven, and a built-in microwave. It is well stocked with dinnerware, flatware, cooking utensils, and pots & pans. The kitchen also features a single serve coffeemaker, toaster and blender. From the window, you can watch the osprey flying over the Mill River in search of food, while you cook.

The formal dining room boasts a mahogany buffet cabinet and a solid wood, oval dining table which seats 6. Enjoy the view while you dine, as you sit in front of a large picture window which looks out onto the well-manicured grounds. You can often catch site of osprey, sea gulls and other indigenous bird life.
Adjacent to the dining room, you will find a large bathroom.


BATH HIGHLIGHTS-

The spacious bath features a full-size shower and tub combo. The linen closet is stocked with soft, fluffy towels and paper goods and has full-length mirrored doors. These features, along with a huge double vanity will make getting ready that much easier. The bath also doubles as a laundry and boasts a new state-of-the art stacked washer and dryer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: After a rewarding career in clinical/pharmaceutical research, I am now a retired entreprenuer. I love Maine, its beauty and all it has to offer, especially here along the MidCoast. I love to paint in watercolor, garden, spend time with my grandchildren and meet interesting new people.

Why the Owner Chose Rockland:
We came to Mid-Coast Maine on vacation one summer, and fell in love with the historic, picturesque town of Thomaston and its friendly and welcoming residents. We were also impressed by the abundance and richness of the activities one could avail. At a later date, we found this wonderful, majestic 5 bedroom home set on a small hill on ¾ acres and decided to purchase it. We wanted to share our home as a vacation rental, so people could experience all that the Mid-Coast has to offer, with its live performances, live music, museums, art galleries and festivals abundant in downtown Thomaston, Rockland, & Camden and other surrounding areas of Mid-Coast Maine. In 2010, I began renovations to convert the second floor into an apartment with its own private entrance.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This exquisite apartment, has all the modern conveniences, is centrally located and perfect for the vacation or corporate traveler that needs easy access to Downtown Thomaston, Rockland, Camden and surrounding mid-coast areas. Situated near the border between Rockland and Thomaston and with easy access to Route 1, you are in Rockland in a couple of minutes. It is also walking distance to the library, churches, grocery store, café/restaurant, lounge bar, post office and shops.
