"I brought my team here for a three night, three day retreat in September. We had a lovely time and look forward to returning again. The living room's monitor is HDMI-compatible, which allowed us to project presentations, and the kitchen was big enough for us to cook multi-course meals together as exercises in team-building and sustenance. The house is lovely and six adults were able to share the 2 bathrooms easily. It was a bit cool but we made fires and the gas fireplace offered lots of heat. I highly recommend this site for teams of up to seven looking to focus on a project or plan for the coming quarters. It would also be perfect for two families with kids vacationing together."

"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."

"My wife & I are seniors who, over the years, have rented many homes in Midcoast & Downeast Maine. This was one of the very best - beautiful views, quiet, comfortable, well equipped, 10 minutes from town, & helpful owner. What more could anyone want? We will return."

"I have always wanted to share the beauty and magic of my birth state with my friends from afar. We searched long and hard for the most idllic accommodations and decided on this island get away with 3 other families. Every expectation was exceeded. Gigi and Matt were the most gracious hosts. Adventures included clam digging, harvesting mussels, lobster bake on the rocks, scenic boat excursions & fairy house construction along an enchanted moss covered trail. Gigi had exceptional patience with the children who wanted to help her in the kitchen at every moment. They published the daily menu, set the table, baked cookies and made pizza together. The food she prepared for us was delicious & healthy. We highly recommend this vacation destination. It was an amazing week."
