About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'On The Rock' Is on the Rock!

The Rock sits on top of a big boulder right above the beach. If you were any closer to the water you'd be swimming!

There's a large picture window that faces out to the beach and the ocean, this window faces east-southeast.

Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Watch leisure boats and lobstermen on the deck that is beautifully built into an outcropping of rock that is just outside your door.

The main room of the cabin has a built-in full-size bed. This bed is set back from the rest of the living room, and is perfect for an afternoon nap. It also has a separate bedroom with a full-size bed. The bathroom includes a shower.

On The Rock Cabin sits over looking an incredible spot on the coast of Maine, that's a promise ~ So dream away!

About Joshua Grodzins

I live in this area and think it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. This cabin is a very special place to all that visit. The beach the cabin sits on is really something special on the coast of Maine. It is a treasure to me, and if you come, I hope it is for you as well.

Awesome setting!

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our stay here. Peaceful,quiet and beautiful views. Loved watching the changing tides. Plenty of lobster shacks within a short distance if you don’t want to cook your own. Joshua was great to work with and enjoyed meeting him. Would definitely recommend this property.

Great location and views. Cabin was not so great

  • 3 of 5

Location, deck, deck furniture, views, access to water, and kayaks were wonderful, 5+ stars. Because we spent 90% of our awake-time outside, we had a great stay. The inside of the cabin is not so great. Kitchen, bathroom, and dining-area furniture were old and ill-kept, 1 star; for example, peeling paint on the dining-area furniture. Bedroom was barely big enough for the bed and we slept in the bed in the living area. The cabin had mice, one of which got trapped in a pot at night, keeping us awake until we finally found it. The cottage is cluttered with the owners stuff, much of which is nice, but there was barely a free surface anywhere. Baskets and lamps hang from the ceiling and we were forever knocking our heads on them. The cabin is terribly over-priced. We picked the cabin in part due to its high cost, assuming that this meant that it would be really nice inside. It is not.

Owner's Response: Well I can't say that I totally disagree with Dennis, first and foremost what I mean by that is --- It's my cabin and it is a cabin. I am sharing it with those who want to be here.... Of course, I get all of my personal belongs out of the cabin, or totally put away when I have incoming guests. As Dennis said, and I agree, the deck is probably the best part of the place, especially on a hot summer day.

A Quiet sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to unplug. My wife and I spent a few days here with our 15-year-old daughter. We all loved it. Joshua was very attentive to our needs.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin with my family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this review. I love my cabin, I do think it's a very special place. It sits up high, and it's the closest to the beach and the water of all the cottages on the beach. That alone makes it kind of special. I do try and do my best for my guests. The town of Rockland is nearby, and that's a great little town with a lot to do. There are some really great restaurants, if you do decide that you want to leave the beach!

cabin on the maine coast

  • 5 of 5

Lovely small cabin on top of a cliff over looking a beautiful bay. My husband and I had a few days here while our children were away at camp. It was perfect for us. Although there are a number of houses in the area the cabin felt quite private. Great food options in the area from lobster on the shore to award winning dining. Kayaking in the bay was wonderful. Only negative was the closeness of the regional airport.

We rented "On the Rock" and were absolutely delighted. The cabin exceded the descriptions written by the owner. The charm of sitting on the deck and watching the ocean's tides and sunsets was amazing, peaceful, and unforgettable. The owner supplied ample accomodations and answered questions about the area with knowledge. We would highly recommend "On the Rock" to anyone wanting a peaceful getaway in mid-coast Maine.
