Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

***During the Month of September we will entertain requests for stays that are less than our usual minimum of 7 days.***

Terrific Mid-coast Location:Conveniently located. 10 minutes to Waldoboro or Friendship. 25 minutes to Damariscotta, Pemaquid and Round Pond; 30 minutes to Rockland and 40 minutes to Camden.

Great Views: Cottage sits directly on shoreline overlooking picturesque cove with unobstructed views of undeveloped islands and an Audubon reserve. The shoreline includes 80 feet of private granite ledge.

Perfect for Sports Enthusiasts & Those Who Enjoy Country Living: Ideal for sunbathing, swimming, kayaking and canoeing. Trails for hiking and off-road biking nearby. Anchorage of boat possible out on the cove. Our cottage is located on a private, summer cottage association road. The location is peaceful and quiet but not isolated. Three storage sheds and a forested area provide privacy from the road.

The Cottage: Our cottage is a traditional, rustic, Maine cottage. It has a recently expanded second floor and renovated kitchen and bath with modern appliances and bathroom fixtures. It is furnished with simple, modern furnishings for easy maintenance during your stay and quick clean-up on your date of departure.

Please note that we have decided to cover the exterior of the cottage in cedar shingles. The facade facing the garden is complete. The remaining work will be done after the summer season. The cottage is watertight as we have already put up the vapor barrier (which appears blue in the listing pictures) over which the shingles will be attached.

About owner/property manager

Lover of (almost) all things Maine!

Why owner/property manager chose Waldoboro

The Medomak between Waldoboro and Friendship was never really built-up, unlike much of the Mid-Coast Region. The area is still somewhat rural. We loved the cottage's wonderful waterfront location and its views out onto a beautiful cove. It's a very peaceful spot.

What makes this cottage unique

Traditional Maine 'camp' (camp is the term Mainers use to describe cottages). These cottages are becoming scarcer and scarcer as more and more are being converted to year-round houses. We fell for the place because of its simplicity and traditional feel.

Quiet, comfortable cottage at the water's edge.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, quiet week at the cottage. For city dwellers, being by the water is a dream. Great sunrises, sunsets, fog watching, seal spotting and herons flying by. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable and uncomplicated stay. Richard was very helpful in getting us all the information we needed about the cottage and the environs. The new Jameson Lobster Pound in Friendship is a great addition to the area for a laid back and most convenient lobster roll or dinner. If you like cooking, the kitchen is equipped for that, too. We don't kayak, but the bay is perfect for it. Hiking is great around Camden and there are many things to explore (The Olsen House, farm stands, artisan shops, lobster pounds) on the back roads.

Great escape, rustic rejuvenation!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. We rented a kayak from a nearby shop (they delivered // picked up) and spent the week padding around the cove. Lots of sea-life! Great view of the ocean from the kitchen and backyard, incredible star-gazing too.

The upstairs addition to the cottage is really neat, feels like a log cabin, very peaceful. Richard is a great guy, definitely recommend renting this place, we'd happily do so again. Fully rejuvenated after a week in Waldoboro, a fantastic escape from the city.

Things to bring that made our trip amazing: wireless router (there's a cable modem, but no wifi), hammock (stretch it between trees), 1000 piece puzzle, projector (movies on the walls/ceiling), and of course, your dog.

Week long getaway

  • 5 of 5

Richard was more than accommodating! This little cabin was plenty for the week and reasonably priced. Very private! Quiet. Just what my boyfriend and I needed for a getaway. We spent the entire week on the water in our kayaks. My boyfriend saw a seal the first day out!! We went up to go to the lobster festival, that was fun. It was excellent!! Thank you Richard!!
