2 1/2 Months of Fabulous Fun!
"My husband and I stayed at this great house from late September into early December 2014. We wanted a warm, inviting house to have an empty nest experience and watch the fall colors wash over Maine. Our time here was really terrific and this house fulfilled our wishes. We had guests sprinkled throughout our stay and there was always plenty of room and everyone exclaimed how comfortable the beds were.
The kitchen is amazing and incredibly well appointed. If you need it, it's in there! A Viking Stove and butcher block countertops made cooking Thanksgiving dinner with visiting family members truly joyous. We invited new Camden friends to dinner and ended up hosting dinner for 16 people, and we all fit (snugly) in the dining/kitchen area. It felt like home....but better!
The location cannot be beat! Walk into town easily for tasty dinners, fun shopping, a really great library or to stroll through the harbor. Walk a block in the opposite direction and you're at Laite Beach and park where you can have fun with kids and dogs, or enjoy a glass of wine while watching the evening sun change the color of the water.
Any issue we had was quickly and cheerfully attended to by Kate. We would be delighted to stay here again!
The only people who I would not recommend this house to is someone who is unable to navigate stairs. There is not a downstairs bedroom, though in a pinch, they could sleep on the couch because there is a downstairs bathroom."

"We stayed at the Stone’s Throw Cottage for four days while celebrating our anniversary. It’s perfect for a romantic getaway. The natural and architectural beauty of the property cannot be measured. Stone’s Throw is the perfect blend of simplicity and elegance. While the photos and the description are accurate, what you find once you get there is that there’s so much more to the property. The cottage is nestled into the edge of the woods which provides a sense of privacy for guests in the cottage. The soft fragrant smells of the flowers and spruce trees surrounding the cottage will have your senses reeling. In the evenings, we opened the windows to let the cool air in; and even though it was dark outside and the living room was gently lit (lights are on dimmers, by the way!) our privacy was protected by the forest. It felt like home for us. The interior of the cottage is immaculate and beautifully decorated, right down to the linens. Josh is a wonderful host; and as it turns out he’s a handy guy to have around when you’re in a pinch. While we were talking with Josh outside the cottage, I discovered that we were late for a sailing charter. Josh graciously insisted that we jump into his truck and he’d “get us to the church on time”… and he did! We were at the dock in only a couple of minutes. Thanks again, Josh!
If you’re looking for something cozy and private, yet close enough to walk to town, then this is the place to stay. From the cottage, you can walk to the ocean in less than 5 minutes…. You’ll be in the heart of Camden in 10. Parking in town can sometimes be a little difficult. There are a lot of folks who drive in to Camden for the day to see the sights, so having everything you need within walking distance from the cottage is a blessing. A grocery store and a pharmacy in town will have everything you need to provision your pantry during your stay, don’t worry. Restaurants, shops, sailing… everything’s just a “Stone’s Throw” away! (you see what I did there?) If you’re into hiking, bring your gear. Camden Hills State Park is about 2.5 miles north from the cottage and has 30 miles of hiking trails through some of the most beautiful wilderness you’ll ever see.
Not only do we recommend staying at Stone’s Throw, I can assure you… we’ll be back (hopefully) soon!

"Again, for the second year, the accommodations were excellent. Location is ideal, with relatives in Rockland and Lincolnville. Maria is an excellent host, being there when needed, but behind the scenes. Everything about the property is 1st class and will do it again."

"My boyfriend and I wanted a peaceful little place out in the country, and this was perfect. It's back on a dirt road, so we saw few cars and woke up only to birdsong. Camden is only a 15 minute drive away, though, so we were able to drive to town for fresh fish whenever we felt like it. And with the fully equipped kitchen that was just the right size for two people, we cooked a lot. I'd say the kitchen is the real star of this cabin, although with two porches for watching the trees go by, skylights and windows everywhere for great lighting, and a nice little sound system we kept going almost all weekend, it's hard to choose. We had a fabulous time at an equally fabulous price. I would recommend Sive's cabin in a flash, and we will almost certainly be coming back. A well-deserved five stars."
