"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 great time staying in this non toxic house. We loved the modern feel and the peaceful atmosphere. It was a welcome family retreat and having a washer/dryer was very helpful. We stayed as a family of six but it would be most comfortable for 4 people as there are no blinds in the main family area so it's harder to sleep. Don't forget the bug spray and a fly swatter as its in the middle of forest and the bugs follow you in. If we take another road trip to Maine, we would aim to stay here again."

"Love this house so much! This is our second year. Its like stepping back into our childhood homes in Maine. So warm and comfortable. From cozy fires in the "barn" to cookouts on the porch we always feel like we are "home". The house is so welcoming. We hope to be back next year."

"My daughter and her husband joined us at this wonderful location. The house was located with a beautiful view of the bay. It was peaceful and quiet, the sun rises were stunning. the home is well equipped, clean and host was very attentive. Later in the week another couple joined us. We enjoyed eating at Rollie's in Belfast (only 10 minutes drive south). One day was spent in the Bar Harbor area. (beautiful area) Belfast is really the best area for grocery shopping and eating. We all enjoyed our stay and hope to return again next year only we plan to stay at least two weeks. This was my second time in Maine and I hope to return, the others in our party had never been in this area and loved it. Thanks for a wonderful week."
