We loved it!
"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!

"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!"

"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."

"House is within easy walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in Camden. Directly across the street is Camden Harbor. Plenty of benches and areas to just sit and relax and enjoy the harbor. Also, the Camden Public Library is just down the street. Very nice little library.
Upon arriving the house was immaculately clean. All the bedrooms had very comfortable beds and bedding. The dining room has a large table with plenty of seating. The side of the house has spacious decking with chairs and a table.
The only con's - Limited parking space for the house and no TV in the downstairs main living area. It would have been nice to have a fire pit in the backyard.
Overall I felt this was a very good rental. If you are visiting Camden this is a good place to stay."
