A very special place!
Peaceful spot on the Sheepscot River in Central Maine.
The host, Marianne, was very responsive and attentive. The cottage is beautiful and has everything one could need.
A very special place, indeed.
I am so glad that you enjoyed the Sheepscot River - it is a peaceful place and I like to share it with others... I appreciate your thoughts re: that the River Cottage is a well stocked kitchen. and cottage.! Hope to see you again...
A very special location and comfortable house.
We had a wonderful few days at the cottage - the location is secluded, wonderfully peaceful and absolutely stunning. The whole family enjoyed kayaking to Long Pond and spotting wildlife along the way - we did that several times! My favourite thing was to sit quietly by the river in the early morning with a cup of tea and watch the hummingbirds feed on the riverside flowers - absolutely magical! The house was comfortable, tastefully decorated and well equipped- we enjoyed cooking and relaxing there very much. There were mosquitoes to contend with but we were equipped with bug creams so they weren’t too much of a nuisance. We were pleased we had brought ‘wet shoes’ - kayaking to Long Pond involves getting out and taking the boat over a beaver dam so we got wet feet - all part of the fun, the kids loved it!
It was great to hear that you had a wonderful time at the River Cottage! It is a quiet and interesting location filled with beautiful flowers and wildlife along the River and on the Pond. Your family really appreciated getting out on the River and they certainly absorbed the nature that the River offers. Your family were lovely guests and I hope to see you all again in Maine...
Sweet river cottage
This property is super cute and had everything we needed for our stay. The owner, Marianne, was very kind and came by to show us where things were located. The property was secluded and though we could hear some road noise, overall it's a very quiet & peaceful place.
It was a pleasure to hear that you had everything you needed to enjoy the River Cottage experience! The property is quiet and peaceful surrounded by towering oak trees, the River, and nature.
Peaceful and convenient getaway
We enjoyed our stay in this clean and well-insulated cottage surrounded by singing birds and flowers. Very peaceful location, not directly near any place but conveniently located near everywhere if you are trying to explore Maine for the first time. Had fun with the canoe and kayaks, but did have to get our feet wet to explore past a beaver dam. (Mosquitos and ticks were also an annoyance at times, but we had been warned and were prepared.)
Marianne was a marvelous hostess-helpful, available, and kind.
Her cottage was the perfect place to stay during our first trip to Maine.
Peace and quiet
This was our second stay at River Cottage and we enjoyed just as much as the first. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy what nature has to offer.
The cottage is clean and comfortable. Kayaks and a canoe available for exploring the river and Long Pond. You can see herons, loons and even an eagle. In about an hour you can be in Boothbay Harbor for a lobster dinner.
Highly recommended if you are looking for a place to relax and unwind.
It was a pleasure to see Cathy and her husband again at the River Cottage! Part of what engages people here is the serenity, wildlife, and quietude of taking a deep breath and relaxing. Midcoast Maine especially offers great restaurants, various hikes, shops, and a multitude of destinations.
Quiet Quaint and Relaxing
Our family chose the River Cottage as it was cheaper and away from all the hustle of bustle of the ocean city life. When we pulled up to the house we were thrilled, as our older teen / young adult children echoed “we don’t have service”. We weren’t disappointed as this was a vacation to get away, stop the world, and force the electronics to be put down. (However there is Wi-Fi, so we weren’t able to completely put the electronics down) As we entered the house again, no disappointment. This was the cleanest vacation rental we’ve booked thus far! Our son arose at 5:00 every morning, climbed into the canoe with his fishing pole, and down the river he went. Beavers and ducks swam by. An eagle and loon flew over, and we just soaked in God’s beautiful creatures. Kitchen was great to prep meals in and we loved sitting on the porch to eat dinner. Be aware, there is not a microwave, although that wasn't a big deal. The fire pit outside was great to make hotdogs and s’mores. Wonderfully delicious! Be sure to check out Hussey's General Store while you're there! It's a short 8 minute drive.
There is lots to do in Maine if you wish to take in other attractions, get ready to drive, but the miles are so worth it. From sunrise at Cadillac Mountain/Acadia National Park (2.5 hour drive), to Puffin watching out of Boothbay Harbor (1 hour drive), botanical gardens in Boothbay (1 hour), to eating cheap lobster at Docks Seafood in South Portland after taking a lighthouse tour (1.5 hours), to looking for moose in the Rangeley area (2.5 hours). Don’t let those pricier restaurants charge you $50 for a lobster meal. Docks is fresh daily, cheap and delicious! You can even order extra seafood from their cooler to take back to the cottage for another meal during your stay.
Our family is already talking about returning and we hope this review helps you decide to rent the River Cottage. Marianne was great to chat with and even dropped by to see us for a few minutes one evening.
I had wonderful renters who very much appreciated their week at the River Cottage! It makes me feel good that the Cottage is a great destination for local and other attractions around Maine. Having a place for children (and their parents!) to remember their special vacations is priceless. The great State of Maine has multiple lovely places to enjoy...I am glad my cottage is one of them.
Niché sur les rives de la rivière Sheepscot à Somerville, Maine, la rivière Cottage surplombe la rivière avec des vues lointaines à Long Pond Lake. Canoës et kayaks prennent le pagayeur aval dans le lac 2. 5 mile; un quai est situé dans la rivière pour l'accès à l'eau facile. Eagles et grands hérons nichent le long de la rivière et de fleurs sauvages couvrent les remblais. Les environs sont situés privé sur plusieurs acres. Le chalet a été récemment construit et prêt à être dégusté. Aucun voisin peuvent être vus ou entendus à partir du chalet, très privé.
Idéalement situé dans Midcoast Maine aux villes d'Augusta, Belfast, Rockland, Camden, Lincolnville, Boothbay, Damariscotta et Portland (~ 1 heure de route), il y a des boutiques, des activités en bord de mer, des restaurants, des spectacles d'art locaux, des concerts / musique événements, musées (Wyeth, Lighthouse +), parcs, et la randonnée dans un trajet de 20-50 minutes. Hussey's General Store (épicerie +) est à 10 minutes du chalet - une icône locale.
