Welcome to River Bend Cottage. Our bright and newly renovated cottage is in the perfect location for you and your friends or family to explore all that the wonderful Midcoast Region has to offer, either by land or water. It is located near the Dutch Neck Marine Park, so bring your boat(s) and enjoy beautiful sailing, kayaking or motor boating on the Medomak River. Nearby you can swim in the pristine Peter's Pond or walk the trails on the Osborn Finch preserve. If you're lucky enough to be here during raspberry season, we'll be sure to give you directions to the best patch in the neighborhood.
Our house is outfitted with all that you need to make your stay very comfortable (including linens which are provided with your rental). We wanted to create a space that immediately feels like home, is clean, cared for and well-loved. The kitchen is stocked with basics and the dining room seats 8. Walk in, drop your bags and you will be ready for a laid-back Maine experience. There are plenty of living room seats to snuggle in after a full day of touring the area. The floors are impervious to dog paws, so your well-behaved, house-trained dogs are welcome to join you on your vacation. Sitting around the fire pit is a perfect place to do some stargazing. If you're quiet you might hear owls hooting or loons crying. There have, on occasion been moose in the area; not many and not often, but keep your eyes open! With the home comes large private outdoor spaces for relaxing, reading or playing. Shopping is available nearby, both supermarket and farm-stands. For anyone retail-minded, we are an hours drive from Freeport with LLBean and outlet shopping.
We've compiled a folder of our favorite local restaurants, sights to see and things to do - you will find it hard to choose. Want a real Maine lobster cookout? We can arrange that. Just available to answer your questions to help make your vacation memorable and fun.
