  • wonderful place but not handicap accessible

    "We recently spent a week in this most-beautiful home and setting. With one strong exception - see below - the house was as advertised and more. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want, including coffee grinders, juicers, and even a bread maker. The house itself was large enough to acomodate the eight we had, and the fenced-in yard was perfect for dogs. There was a good gate at the top of the stairs to prevent the toddler and dogs from going down. We felt totally comfortable and welcome and would highly recommend it. However, this is not a house for the mobility impaired, and is most definitely not wheelchair accessible. The first problem is a moderately sloped walkway from parking area to house, which was covered with shells. The path is beautiful but very treacherous and exhausting for the person on a walker; she wound up leaving the house only once the week we were there. In addition the master bedroom and bath were big and modern but the bathroom had no grab bars, making toileting and showering difficult and hazardous. A suggestion to the owners: put a door outside the second bedroom. Since the only way to ensure privacy in that bedroom is to close the door at the kitchen, this effectively removed the bathroom from general use. Two people used that bathroom, and everyone else went to the basement."

  • Very quiet lakeside retreat

    "Peaceful and relaxing. Spacious sleeping arrangements. Enjoyed using the kayaks, grill, and deck. Less than half hour to Hallowell (for small shops and large antique mall) and Augusta. Visit the State of Maine museum! Very nicely done and extremely inexpensive ($2 for adults, $1 for teens). Hussey's General Store is nearby and a must-see: guns, ammo, wedding gowns, and cold beer! Suggestions: additional seating for dining. Cabin sleeps 8 comfortably but only 3 chairs for dining. Also, anyone taller than 6' needs to duck through doorways and on second floor."

  • 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."

  • Cottage on the bay

    "Our one week stay at this wonderful cabin was enjoyable and we are looking forward to retuning. My family of 5 had plenty of room to spread out and relax while looking at the fabulous views. At night we warmed up around the cast iron fireplace. The location was very convenient to all the coastal towns. South Thomaston was very unique with a small town charm , our favorite stop was the Kegg store were we picked up several delicious meals. The owner went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. Since returning home we have recommened this cottage to family and friends."
