"After visiting Maine many years ago, we wanted to rent a house on the coast and stay a bit longer this time. This house was perfect......secluded on over 3 acres, yet only 10 min. from Tenant's Harbor and 15 min. to Port Clyde. The sound of the ocean waves lapping the rocks on shore was what I fell asleep to every night and awoke to every morning. This house was perfect for just the two of us, but would probably be fine for a small family, too. The pictures show exactly what the house looks like. Morning sunrises were beautiful on the deck. Rockland is the nearest "big town" with some nice restaurants and shops, but about a 20 min. drive away. We chose to dine locally in Tenant's harbor and Port Clyde and bought fish (at Jesse's Market in Rockland) to cook on our own. The added bonus for us was the clay tennis court a very short distance away. It was like our own private tennis court, which we used every morning!"

"Our family had a wonderful vacation at this property. The home is very spacious and well equipped. There beautiful views from the many windows in the living room and from the balcony in the master bedroom which was large and extremely comfortable. There is a lovely screened in porch to sit in and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Sheepscot river below. We rented kayaks in town and had them delivered and enjoyed the water almost every day. The house is convenient to Bath, Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor. For dinner don't miss the Montsweag Roadhouse (comfort food) or the Newcastle Public House (organic, local). This home is very clean and has all the modern necessities. Would definitely choose Riverwind again."

"This is our 2nd year of renting this fantastic home in this beautiful area of Maine. Our family has been coming to this area for over 50 years and decided 2 years ago to look for a house in the area that would serve our family better. we got lucky and found this home and it was available for the week we wanted. Our 99 year old Mom just loves this home. It is so beautiful, clean, and just feels like a home. You cannot believe how peaceful this location is. Each morning we bring our cup of tea and sit on the deck and watch the lobster boats, kayaks, and sailboats pass by. The pool is just fantastic and so refreshing after a day at the beach. There is plenty to do in this area and the owners ( who are just great) have done a wonderful job providing anyone who rents the house a very detailed booklet of places of interest around the area. The rest of our family rent other homes in the area and we just have the best time setting up down at our favorite beach( there are several to pick from in this area) each day and having quality family time together. we cannot say enough about what a great home this is and how the owners do everything they can to provide every comfort and amenity for their renters. This place is simply the best!!!!! Hopefully next year our children and grandchildren will be able to join us. There is plenty of room and this house has everything you could need and more. we cannot wait till next year!!!!!"

"Everything was perfect when we arrived, including replacement of down pillows and comforter to accommodate a severe feather allergy. As frequent guests to Spruce Point inn in the past we know the Booth Bay Harbor area very well and have always said "someday we will stay at Retreat Cottage" but since we could never plan far ahead it was always booked. This year we are moving to the West Coast so this was our last Maine vacation - we never dreamed the cottage would be available but it was.
The cottage is small - perfect for two adults and is so peaceful. We started and ended each day sitting in the chairs out front - coffee in the morning; wine in the evening. The kitchen is small but thanks to our manager, Sue we learned of Eventide and were able to pick up some very nice cheeses, meats and breads for anti pasto We also stopped at the York Farmer's market on the way up and got some meats and veggies. It was easy to whip up a gourmet meal a couple of days - and the others we headed to Muscongus Bay Trading Company in Round Pond which is a long time favorte.
Having a chance for an evening sail on our last night made the entire trip perfect.
Thank you Susan for helping to make this happen and to our host John Druce who elected to keep the Retreat Cottage and maje u available for special memories."
