  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Comfy, Relaxing Cottage

    "What a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! We stayed for 5 nights as we attended a wedding at the lighthouse on Friday. Janet could not have been more helpful with keeping in contact, a beautiful card, information on Maine waiting on the table. The cottage was a delight with a screened in porch, some food in the fridge, and a short walk to the shore. Did I mention a screened in porch!! : )Wedding lobster bake at a co-op, New Harbor for a dinner, North Country Wind Bells on Rt. 32, Freeport for LLBean, and Damariscotta with a pirate festival on Saturday lent for an enjoyable exploration of the area. A splendid place to unwind!"

  • 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."
