About the Property

Our slice of heaven is right on a tidal river with harbor down the road.

Tidewatch Cottage is the best of both worlds--we are right on a peaceful tidal river that you can kayak and just down the road from Friendship's famous lobster pounds. With beautiful views from every room, you can relax at home or head off on amazing adventures to see lighthouses, historic museums, the Farnsworth Art Museum or go antiquing. Great restaurants are nearby in Thomaston and Rockland.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We love Maine and the town of Friendship. We vacationed in nearby Waldoboro for years before finding this perfect spot to share. We love the area for it's laidback feel, proximity to iconic Maine coastal sights and easy access to all the Mid Coast has to offer. We discovered Tidewatch Cottage and couldn't resist it's beautiful view, wonderful location and the opportunity for an easy paddle every sunny day! we are Rotarians and will give special rates and other benefits to fellow Rotarians!

Why the Owner Chose Friendship, ME, USA:
Enjoy modern amenities while still being on a real Maine escape. Tidewatch Cottage is a typical New England waterfront cottage--but it was built in 2007, so everything is up to date! You can paddle a canoe or kayak from the backyard, watch beavers and birds on the river, explore tide pools at low tide. You can also head into town for a great meal, shopping or museums. Best of all, you can ask a local lobsterman to deliver fresh lobster on his way home. This is the heart of Friendship in the truest sense of the word--a place to enjoy yourself and share great times with friends and family. There are enough beds to accommodate eight, a great kitchen and dining room with amazing views from every room--even the bathroom upstairs! There is a large yard for kids, a grill and picnic table for al fresco dining and a large deck for enjoying an evening glass of wine. You have access to a washer and dryer, a full kitchen with chef's tools and plenty of space to work. You can walk down to Wallace's for groceries, visit the local lobster pound for the fresh catch or even have lobster delivered at the end of the day.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Have the best of Mid Coast Maine nearby but enjoy peace and privacy at the same time. Tidewatch Cottage let you choose YOUR perfect slice of Maine--you can kayak one day, visit lighthouses and farmers markets the next and just chill out the next day! Friendship is centrally located for reaching the best of Mid-Coast Maine attractions--lighthouses, museums, shopping and restaurants. But it's tiny town rural feel let's you relax and enjoy a piece of heaven right on the salt river.
