  • Maine Get-Away location

    "A perfect quiet spot for my wife and I and our 2 dogs. The large back yard, fields, and pond for swimming were great, except I didn't allow enough time for fishing! The home is very well kept, neat as a pin, and all amenities worked perfectly. Our 7 day stay went by very fast, and we do hope to return next year!"

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Location!

    "What a perfectly inviting home only a short stroll into town! I stayed there with my mother, sister and 2 year old daughter and there was plenty of room. We loved enjoying a cup of tea on the front porch and the ease of walking into town. The neighbors were super friendly and we overall had a great time. Thank you so much for a wonderful week in your lovely town."

  • AWESOME!

    "Finally.....after 30 years of searching up and down the coast of Maine, we have found the PERFECT cottage! The location is totally private, the ocean views are stunning, the cottage is adorable and fully stocked with everything you need to have a wonderful vacation. Because there are no restaurants with a better view then this cottage, we chose to cook our meals and enjoy every moment of the amazing scenery. Locally you can purchase fresh, just out of the sea, lobsters, clams and haddock. The sunrises are incredible, the sound and scent of the ocean hypnotic. The icing on the cake for me was the wildlife....there were Harbor Seals on the rocks, Sea Ducks on the water, Osprey and Eagles in the air. There are also great hiking trails right from the house that wind through the conifers and a bog. We came home completely renewed and now we can't wait to rent the cottage again next year! A huge thank you to the owners for sharing this gem with us."
