came back for second year in a row for family vacation
"we had such a great time last year that we came back for our family vacation again this August. The accommodations were perfect. The cabin is on a cove. We drank coffee on the deck and watched the sunrise over the ocean. We skipped rocks and collected shells during the day. At night, we grilled burgers and ate lobster under the stars. We used the kayaks to get to a secluded beach that the neighbors told us about. We used the place as a base camp to explore interior Maine and along the coast. It is an ideal location because it is very near lots of attractions, but distanced enough from the tourism and traffic that it provides a real escape and adventure. It is also unique in that the towns it is near are real towns and not just generic tourist towns. The cabin has two bedrooms, a warm and inviting living/ dining area and a kitchen with everything necessary to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The owners are kind and generous folks and that is obvious in our interactions with them as well as in the vibe of the home. It feels warm and welcoming. Highly recommended."

"My husband and my son and his wife booked this beautiful, well supplied, house on the water. We stayed for a week and had a great time. We enjoyed the deck. The beds were very comfortable and each couple had their privacy too! We were surrounded by quaint little towns and lots of scenic drives. The sky was intriguing with the sunrise and sunsets. We ate lobster everyday! I would definitely recommend this to my friends. The owners and booking agent were also very helpful and friendly"

"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."
