Please check the state size regulations as they may change each year. The house is on a hill up from the ocean. You can even walk out to one island at low tide! Walk for miles by the ocean and explore the tidal pools for starfish, crabs and wildlife, boat landing, bring kayak, canoe, or boat to explore many offshore islands, some had native American settlements, you can see many herds of seals sunning themsevles on the rock ledges by the offshore islands if you go out to the islands by boat, great fishing off rocks in front of house at low tide by channel. place for campfire. 2 ocean sea kayaks, 2 seats each, Old Town and Perception with child seat also, and a 4 person canoe are provided free for your use, please lock them up in the basement after each use, there is high speed internet so bring a laptop if you want to watch TV and keep up with the news in the outside world

Bald eagles are being sighted frequently since the winter and spring of 2012 at low tide by the ocean and apparently they go fishing as a pair to fed their eaglets that must be high up in a tree behind the cottages, they fly overhead above the trees year round now, many types of bushes and flowers and plants have been planted in the last few years, by the houses and on the way to the ocean, 3 types of lavender including the one used to make perfume, 4 different flowering colors each of heather and butterfly bushes, foxglove, menardis and osobe, many of which draw hummingbirds and butterflies in season and other varieties of flowers.

Maranatha Cottage 2 sleeps 14-16,with king, queen and single size beds, 3 super comfortable inflatable queen 18 1/2 inch high air mattresses with built in electric pump and built in pillows if extra friends or relatives come to visit, natural wood flooring. We have a new cleaning service, one of the best and most thorough on the coast, they are immaculate and very nice

Two decks, winterized. and plenty of windows.

Take advantage of the lobster! You can buy some from a local lobsterman and prepare it yourself! South Thomaston is located 5 miles from Rockland, the 'Lobster Capital'. 40% of Lobsters in the state are caught in this county!, the best way to cook lobster is in ocean salt water, self cleaning oven, also there is a place for a campfire and logs cut in the woods for use in the campfire or may be split for use in the woodstove

Local lighthouses (Owl's Head, Rockland Breakwater and Marshall's Point), Camden Hills State Park, Farnsworth Art Museum are some favorite day trip destinations. Nearby towns like Camden and Rockland are fun to explore and do some souvenir and antique shopping. Acadia National Park is only a few hours away.

My family and I have been saying at this cottage on Pleasant Beach for more than 10 years. It fits our family of five comfortably with room to spare. The beach and cove are right outside the door, and it has nice water views. It is a great place to spend the day but is also within striking distance of all the major attractions, including Port Clyde, Spruce Head, Rockland, the Camden Hill State Park and a half-dozen light houses. It's the perfect place for a family of day-trippers who want to hike, go to the beach, or access some of the best restaurants the area has to offer. It is extremely affordable and is located along a quiet cove away from the crowds. Truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

The house was dirty. No cleaning between the renters. And a large box with a wood burning stove was parked in the middle of the living room area. House needs a good cleaning.

Maine is great this time of year. Not too busy. The house was a little unkempt but was comfortable. Nice fire pit for the late evening S'mores. Had a great time.

Maranatha Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in this cottage during the last three summers while we were taking classes at a woodworking school in nearby Rockport, Maine. The cottage has always met our needs comfortably. The surrounding area is very peaceful and the views of the rocky seashore are very beautiful. The kitchen is well-equipped with whatever might be needed to prepare a meal but we frequently ate our dinners at one of the many restaurants in the vicinity. The beds are comfortable but as others have written you should provide your own pillows and linens. Overall it provides a comfortable place to stay while you explore the beautiful mid-coast of Maine and is very reasonably priced.

2016 Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was a resonable accomodation for the price. There were a few unexpected events, but nothing that reuined our vacation. We had to leave a few days earlier than expected due to personal issues. Wi-fi is not that strong and not always available throughout the cottage. The place is only as clean as the last person who stayed there, so it was not as clean as we would have liked. But we mopped and swept and scrubbed when we got there and before we left. There is not an actual beach, but a boat launch only. But you can take the kayak out from there. You will need to carry it a ways from the cottage. However the beds are very comfortable and it is very peaceful and quiet. Also a new large gas grill was available that the ow er purchased just a few weeks prior to our stay. You will need to bring your own linens and towels. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Downtown Rockland is only about 10 minutes away with lots of lovely shops.

Fraudulent description

  • 1 of 5

In fairness to the owner, when the place proved unsuitable for us, he refunded our money. Be warned that there are no spectacular views, no beach view, no ocean view from this rental property. The owner has another property with the same name close by, with water views. Renters for the smaller cottage must bring their own sheets & pillowcases.
