"Without a doubt the nicest rental home we have ever stayed at. The owners were a joy to work with, wonderful views, super well equipped house with everything we could ever ask for. Lots of toys and games for the children, loved the Frisbee golf course, lots of movies and Netflix provided. One of us had to work and the printer/fax was a big, big help. House was well laid out and views from everywhere. We will definitely be back next year! Thanks Paula for a wonderful vacation.

"I just returned from two glorious weeks at the Hawkweed Cottage. This was my third visit, and it gets better every time. The home is immaculate, comfortable, and secluded - a private oasis along the Maine coast. The home is just as pictured, and the owners take very good care of the property. The owners have also taken care to make sure that the home has all the necessities for a nice vacation. The best feature of Hawkweed is, of course, the view from the deck. It is simple perfection of nature - sitting having coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening - watching the sun rise or set, hearing the lobster boats hum in the morning or the loons in the evening. A perfect setting for relaxing. There is a nice swimming beach within a 5 minute drive. Hawkweed is a great location for exploring the surrounding area - great restaurants in Rockland and Camden, Camden Hills State Park for hiking, and it's not a bad drive to Acadia - even for a day trip. It was always a wonderful feeling coming back to Hawkweed at the end of a busy day. My pooch loved sitting on the deck, taking the sun and snoozing under the table in the shade. I love it and plan to return same time next year. Highly recommended."

"My wife and I enjoyed a two week stay in the Maranatha Cottage in late August and early September. The cottage sits behind the larger house that’s also available as a rental from the same owner. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen with a new refrigerator and stove and although there were only two of us, there is ample sleeping space for a larger group. The cottage sits a few dozen feet further back from the water than the main house but there’s a lovely view of the sunrise over the water from the master bedroom window. The two properties sit at the water’s edge at the end of a cul-de-sac so it’s very quiet and peaceful throughout the day. This was a working vacation and we were away each day until evening, so we especially enjoyed sipping a glass of wine on the beach at sunset. While the location feels remote, good restaurants, shopping and services are available a few miles away in Thomaston or Rockland. The excellent Slipway restaurant at the marina in Thomaston should not be missed. We had comfortable and enjoyable stay in the cottage and felt that it was very reasonably priced."

"House overlooks Owls Head Harbor - very nice view. The hosts were very gracious and accomodating. Unfortunately, we arrived at the start of a four day Nor'easter. But it was still a very enjoyable stay. If I can ever get back up there, I would enjoy another stay at this location."
