Recent South Thomaston reviews

  • Jon from NH

    "If I were to build my own house along the ocean, it would look like this beautiful cottage. It has natural pine walls and hardwood floors, giving a clean airy feel. With three bedrooms upstairs, each with their own sliding glass doors and balcony, and a giant front deck there are breathtaking water views from every room. Wake up to the sound of the ocean and the sunrise over Penobscot Bay. This cottage (really a house) easily fits two families with children with enough room for 10 people. Two showers, a completely open concept living room, kitchen and dining area gives everyone a chance to reminisce over the days adventures and plan the next day together. A stone and sand beach is just feet away from the deck. It is a sea-kayaker's dream house. Lobstermen can be seen working the waters and their catch is available for purchase without a drive to town. Whether summer or winter, this cottage has it all. Without question this is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The owner is attentive and appreciative and truly cares about the experience of those who rent this amazing property."

  • Beautiful and serene!

    "This vacation rental is really a 5 stars plus. The home is beautifully situated with panoramic views of a working harbor in Penobscot Bay and is very private. The house has clearly been loved and is newly updated with tasteful and comfortable furnishings, beautiful art work and a well equipped kitchen. We also so appreciated the pet friendly and elder accessible aspects of the house. The owner is a very gracious host and we hope to return."

  • Beautiful and Relaxing

    "My husband and I just finished a week's stay at this lovely South Thomaston home and couldn't be more pleased with our experience. The home is located directly on the Weskeag River providing a beautiful view from the back deck where we enjoyed our morning coffee, or from the chairs near the river bank in the evening sipping a glass of wine. We made use of the easy river access for kayaking once we got used to the tides. A well-equipped kitchen came in handy for a lobster dinner one night, and as a whole, we enjoyed the quiet comfort of the home. Many thanks to Jon & Kate for their thorough assistance in getting us settled in with details about everything upon our arrival -- and for their patience, as our flight was delayed, so we were later than expected. The home is in a terrific location: Rockland is a short drive away, so during our stay we visited the Farnsworth, had lunch at Cafe Miranda, and a fabulous sushi dinner at Suzuki's. A bit farther up Hwy 1 in Rockport, we enjoyed meals at Shepherd's Pie, then Natalie's near Camden. Although we didn't eat at Primo this trip, it's a short trip north on Rte 73 and delicious! We enjoyed both Owl's Head and Marshall Point Lighthouses on our visit, taking time to hike around Owl's Head during low tide, and returning for the sunset because it's such a short drive from the house. I could go on and on, but think I've made my point -- a truly lovely place to stay!"

  • Maine Magic

    "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."
