  • 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."

  • Perfect!

    "This was the perfect home away from home for us. We had a great time exploring Camden, hiking, kayaking and enjoying the harbor. It was wonderful to have this very comfortable, private, adorable loft to return to. The location is great as it sits in a lovely Camden neighborhood close to everything. Lee and Kim are wonderful hosts making sure you have everything you need. Lee even treated us to a sail on Penobscot Bay a highlight of our trip! Would go back in a heart beat!"

  • Three adults and large dog

    "A wonderful, clean, and well equipped house with plenty of space - even rainy days were comfortable. The view was spectacular from most of the rooms, especially at sunset! Get your lobsters from the coop, and consume them while watching the fox play in the meadow. We will probably return next time we go to Maine to escape southern heat."

  • Great House !!

    "Every detail as described by Darren in this listing was accurate. He was extremely easy to work with and he paid attention to the smallest details to ensure a relaxing week's stay in this superb home. 7 family members were in our group along with our 3 dogs who also enjoyed the area. Live lobsters were available a few miles away and we were able to eat a total of 77 during our stay. Thanks again Darren for sharing your home with us. Highly recommended !!"
