  • 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."

  • A dream 10 days "away" in the perfect house and location

    "this house and wrap-around waterfront property was the perfect, peaceful, true 10-day getaway that we all needed. our adult children joined us, and time and worries from the real world quickly dissolved into days of reading, exploring, photography and fresh summer feasts cooked and enjoyed outside and inside. and countless croquet and badminton matches on the ridiculously picturesque and expansive lawn overlooking maple juice cove. highly recommended sanctuary for anyone in need of an infusion of marine air, electric star and meteor shows, and the rejuvenating powers of mid-coast maine. and yes, plenty of shopping, food, antique and exploring options when needed! enjoy this little piece of heaven on earth..."

  • Hope Camp - what a beautiful spot!

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed are week stay at Hope Camp. The camp is equipped with all the conviences of home. It is very private and we thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife - deer, numerious bird sightings (No turkeys though). The nightly fire fly displays were spectacular as we sat around the camp fire pit. Very quiet and private. Hope to visit again."

  • Wonderful week in Maine!

    "One of our best Maine vacations was just spent in Lincolnville Beach. The apartment was comfortable, clean and had a kitchen stocked with everything we needed. With four restaurants within walking distance we had lots of food choices. Every morning we watched the sunrise on the bay from the large living room window-or by enjoying morning coffee on the benches at the public beach across the street. Days were packed full of site seeing at Acadia National Park, nearby Camden, miles of antiquing and shopping and a day trip to Reid State Park. Top it all off with a week of perfect weather and we had such trouble leaving for home!"
