Dynamite, an apt name for this little gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at Dynamite Beach Cottage this summer. The location is ideal, so near to Rockland, Rockport, Camden, and many mid-coast amenities. The cottage is simple and well kept with everything one needs to relax and enjoy a holiday. The setting is beautiful - very peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the view at all times of day. The only small suggestion I would make is to get a better mattress for the single bed. I think I found my happy place and plan to rent it again next summer. The owner, Christine, was very helpful and available.

Owner's Response: Thank you Laura for your positive review and for letting me know about the single bed mattress. A new mattress has been purchased and will be in place for the beginning of the 2017 season. Best wishes, Christine

A little quirky cottage, away from it all, with a million dollar view.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is rustic, and quirky, with all the basics of home. No A/c, but it was the last week of August and we did not miss it. Located at the end of a gravel dirt road, and right on Rockland Harbor, if you are looking for peace and quiet, and a million dollar view, this is the place! The owner, Christine, was as helpful as could be, and we really just loved the entire experience. Our first visit to Maine, we drove up from our home in the Shenandoah Valley. Tho the cottage is "away from it all" it was only a few miles from the town of Rockland, where we could pick up everything and anything we needed. I think we spent 90 % of our time on the beautiful screened in porch overlooking the harbor. If you must go out and about there are many interesting places close by, including The Transportation Museum, the Marshall Point lighthouse, the Farnsworth Museum (Wyeth) and many, many interesting shops. Don't miss the 7 Napkin Burger at the Owls Head general store, and breakfast or lunch at Keags store just down the road on 73. We HIGHLY recommend this property. We will probably go back again, perhaps in the Fall next time, just to experience a different season in Maine.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much. Christine, the owner, was very helpful. The cottage sits directly on the water. Our favorite thing was to sit on the lovely screened deck and watch the lobster boats, the many sailboats and the Rockland Light. We saw eagles and loons. It was so very peaceful. The sunsets were spectacular. The cottage is very close to Rockland all that town has to offer.

Classic summer cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We come up every summer to escape the southern summer. The cottage is small but perfect for two charming and the view is incomparable. We cycle we kayak we hike and spend hours on the breezy porch watching the endless show in Rockland harbor. The Osprey, Eagles Seals and Loons never disappoint.

Fantastic Birthday Gift to self

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for the week of my birthday last year and was set to rent it again this year until something came up. The cottage is clean, well equipped with everything you need, pots and pans, dishes, linens, even firewood for the out door fire pit or inside stove. Best feature is the view and privacy. Most days I sat on the deck painting Maine seashells. I brought my own kayak and launched every day right in front of the cottage. It is super close to Rockland for antiquing, shopping, dining, etc, and just down the road is the cutest country store with amazing breakfast. The cottage is rustic for sure but incredibly sweet as is the owner. Thanks Christine for a wonderful and easy rental experience. See you again soon!
