  • lovely property + responsive owners = amazing week

    "When I first started researching a Maine vacation property to rent for a week I focused on traditional coastal cottages. What I found was that most of properties were, well--a bit too rustic for my tastes or the cost too high. When I came across River Watch it immediately caught my attention. Although it was a more modern cottage, it met all of our other wants and needs. I sent an email with a few questions to the owners, Kathryn and Joe, and it was promptly answered with warmth and friendliness. In fact, Kathryn was truly a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire rental process. When we arrived at the cottage and opened the door to that incredible view--wow! It was heaven. Simply put, you have 180-degrees of peaceful water views. The deck with the Adirondack recliners as well as the chairs next to the water enabled us to enjoy six beautiful sunsets. The main cottage (and small guest house, which our college-age son used) had all the amenities imaginable; it was obvious that Kathryn and Joe put much thought into the needs and comfort of their renters. The den area (with that incredible view) had comfortable furniture, flat-screen TV, DVR, stereo system and a supply of DVD movies to peruse on rainy days (of which we had only one!) There was no cable/satellite TV, but there was high-speed internet and wifi and honestly, we did not miss watching TV shows one bit! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook dinner using the fresh ingredients you could buy at the local markets and farm stands. There was even a charcoal grill in the shed that we used twice. The large bathroom had a full supply of bath and beach towels and under the sink was sun block and mosquito repellant. The bathroom in the guesthouse was similarily supplied. There was a full-size washer and dryer in the garage, as well as laundry detergent, spot remover spray and dryer sheets. The living area with the fireplace at the front of the house was not used by us very much, since it was pleasantly warm while we were there. But I can imagine a toasty fire would be nice to sit around when there's more of a chill in the evening air. The bedrooms were of a decent size with small closets that easily held a week's worth of clothes. The property was fairly close to several charming villages and Rockland for any major supplies. It was difficult to leave this beautiful place but we hope to come back someday! Hint--take the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island."

  • A gem!

    "The Hope Cabin is really quite remarkable. It is so well designed, so thoughtfully put together, and so artfully decorated that you don't feel that it's compact. Instead, it has an expansiveness and a connectedness to the outdoors that makes it a perfect cabin in the woods for those who want to get back in touch with nature. The kitchen is actually very easy for two people to work in (provided they work well together!) and there's just about everything you'd need to prepare a full dinner, as we did on a number of nights. The living room is quite comfortable with a fabulous rocker, too. And the bedroom has two skylights through which you can see the stars at night and the dawn in the morning. The front deck is great to hang out on and watch the deer and wild turkeys and birds in the field - even a bald eagle fly overhead. In short, the cabin is a gem. And we had a great week there in August. We'd wholeheartedly recommend it to friends and family in a flash."

  • Jon from NH

    "If I were to build my own house along the ocean, it would look like this beautiful cottage. It has natural pine walls and hardwood floors, giving a clean airy feel. With three bedrooms upstairs, each with their own sliding glass doors and balcony, and a giant front deck there are breathtaking water views from every room. Wake up to the sound of the ocean and the sunrise over Penobscot Bay. This cottage (really a house) easily fits two families with children with enough room for 10 people. Two showers, a completely open concept living room, kitchen and dining area gives everyone a chance to reminisce over the days adventures and plan the next day together. A stone and sand beach is just feet away from the deck. It is a sea-kayaker's dream house. Lobstermen can be seen working the waters and their catch is available for purchase without a drive to town. Whether summer or winter, this cottage has it all. Without question this is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The owner is attentive and appreciative and truly cares about the experience of those who rent this amazing property."

  • Perfect vacation

    "We spent a week in July at the Camp with our two sons, grandparents and a dog. We all had something interesting to do. Family time, serene scenery of the Sandy Pond, woods, listening to birds chirping, fishing, sailing, canoeing, day trips to hike in Acadia National Park, grilling, eating meals out on the deck, bird watching, swimming in the lake, those were only few of the attractions that we enjoyed. The advertising description of the camp was very accurate and the cabin included all home luxuries one my need, full kitchen, comfy beds, full bath, toys/books for kids, TV with DVD player, and even some good movies. The owner came by early in the morning to put up a sailboat for us to use, Grandpa sailed every day and took our sons to learn the skill of sailing. The owners also left us a crate of eggs from their free range chickens, what a nice welcome! Our minds, souls and bodies were rejuvenated during that week of vacation. It was exactly if not even more than we dreamed of, even the weather cooperated. We would go back there in a heartbeat. We would recommend this Private Family Camp to all who love nature, enjoy active recreation and are looking for peace and quiet."

Afterwards, take a stroll down Belfast's old-fashioned Main Street. The oldest shoe store in America, Coburn's Shoe, is still in business and a must-see. A tour of Victorian mansions or some of the many art galleries Belfast is famous for should also be on your list of things to do.
