"We recently spent a week at the Osprey cottage and it was exactly what we had hoped for. Beautiful and relaxing setting, nicely maintained cottage, clean, comfortable furniture, close to lots of activities for kids and adults and downtown Boothbay Harbor. Bill and Lisa were helpful and responsive, and the neighbors in the community were friendly and welcoming. Absolutely no complaints."

"We had a spectacular vacation here. The two-house set up worked beautifully for us. Our family of four stayed at the lakeside cabin, which is rustic but sturdy and spotless and really charming. And our friends without children stayed at the upper house, which is more modern, with accompanying modern amenities. We were happy to keep the kids away from television and wireless, but were also happy to have access to it when we wanted, by just crossing the road.
The owners have outfitted each house perfectly, so when we wanted to make pizza one night, voila - there was a pizza pan in the cabinet. And unlike most vacation homes we've rented, these are stocked with very good quality kitchen and dish ware. We were already familiar with this part of the Maine coast, but had never stayed so close to Camden. There is plenty to do and see if you're in the mood, but we spent most of our time in the kayaks, jumping off the dock, and throwing a ball into the lake for the dog to swim after. Except, of course, that we went into town almost every night for ice cream. And we had two spectacular dinners out -- one at Long Grain (Thai), and the other in Rockport at my new favorite restaurant, Shepherd's Pie. Oh, and there's a very sweet and pretty little public beach and park about a mile away, which is great for young kids because the entry to the water is very shallow, and the lake bottom has been cleared. It really is just a lovely, well-equipped, relaxing place to spend a vacation!"

"We stayed a week this past Sept with 3 couples and absolutely loved our stay. The pictures on this website do not do justice to how wonderful this house is. The bedrooms are good size with comfortable beds. My only complaint would be the small upper windows have no coverings so the morning sun comes in bright and early. The kitchen I large and has everything you could need and then some. There were tons of spices and other wonderful things in the pantry. We did not cook lobster there but if you did want to do so there is everything you would need. We loved the large great room and really enjoyed the fireplace. If I were to change anything it would be to put a bigger TV in. We did take advantage of the large movie selection they had. There were also lots of games. We love sitting on the deck and looking out at the bay and looking at the beautiful night sky. This home is a bit off the beaten path making for wonderful peace and quiet yet only about 15-20 minutes from the darling town of Camden. There are stores a short drive away but you do need a car if you are staying here. The property manager Janey was a delight to work with quickly responding to every call or email I sent. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Maine I would love to stay here again."

"My wife and I enjoyed a two week stay in the Maranatha Cottage in late August and early September. The cottage sits behind the larger house that’s also available as a rental from the same owner. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen with a new refrigerator and stove and although there were only two of us, there is ample sleeping space for a larger group. The cottage sits a few dozen feet further back from the water than the main house but there’s a lovely view of the sunrise over the water from the master bedroom window. The two properties sit at the water’s edge at the end of a cul-de-sac so it’s very quiet and peaceful throughout the day. This was a working vacation and we were away each day until evening, so we especially enjoyed sipping a glass of wine on the beach at sunset. While the location feels remote, good restaurants, shopping and services are available a few miles away in Thomaston or Rockland. The excellent Slipway restaurant at the marina in Thomaston should not be missed. We had comfortable and enjoyable stay in the cottage and felt that it was very reasonably priced."
