Our Home Away From Home!

 5 of 5
This was our second stay at the cottage and we absolutely love it. It's so central to all the things we like to do in Maine. We'll go paddling in the river with our kayaks, go fishing, hiking, shopping, and of course eating out. Some new things we did this time was to go charter fishing for stripers in the Kennebec River, visit Sebago Lake, and go whale watching from Boothbay Harbor.
New to the cottage this time was the addition of kayaks to rent. Connie and Garth have provided a wide selection of kayaks onsite to choose from, single to tandems, sit-in to sit-on, and angler to touring. We rented the angler kayak to go with the two we brought with us, and had just a fun time paddling up and down the river and fishing.
Connie and Garth do an excellent job at maintaining the cottage. The house and property are well maintained. The cottage is also well stocked that we don't have to bring anything other than ourselves and food.
We so thoroughly enjoy our time at the cottage that we now consider it our home away from home. We can't wait to to return again.

Serene Sheepscot Perfection
 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a long Memorial day weekend at Connie's Cottage with my cousin and her family of four. The Sheepscot River was surprisingly serene and quite (especially for a holiday weekend). The house is picture perfect and spotless. The layout is perfect for multiple families to all have their own space. Everything promised in this listing delivers! I've been coming to Maine for 30 years, this location does not disappoint!

Amazing Stay!
 
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Water's Edge Retreat. When we arrived, the cottage was all prepared for our arrival. The cottage is in great shape, nicely decorated and stocked with the necessities. There are great views of the river from the cottage. The location was perfect, secluded (very serene and quiet) and convenient (close to restaurants and sights). There are several great places to eat nearby. Our favorites include, J.R. Maxwell, Beale St BBQ, Sea Dog Brewery, Frosty's Donuts, and Moody's Restaurant. As for sights, we went as far north to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park to down south to Portland. The floating dock was in the water, so we were able to launch our kayaks from the platform and paddle up and down the river. We tried our hand at fishing for stripers at the rivers edge, but were a couple of weeks to early. Damariscotta Lake is nearby and was a great place for freshwater fishing. We were able to meet the owners, Connie and Garth, who are friendly and gracious. They made every effort to make sure our stay met our expectations. In fact, our stay at Water's Edge exceeded our expectations. We certainly highly recommend Water's Edge Retreat. Our only disappointment is that our vacation had to end. We highly recommend.

Heaven on Earth!

My husband and I plan to stay at this wonderful home every May. Connie is a pleasure to work with and each year we find new updates to this beautiful home. This year we enjoyed Freeport for the first time and all the great restaurants close by the home. The pictures of the home are all updated and accurate. I would recommend this home in a heartbeat! Once you stay here you will be counting down to your next visit. I know we are.

Very nice place-perfect for 3 couples

This was our second year to stay here and again we were very impressed. The three bathrooms , four televisions and four fireplaces(which we used on several mornings) make it wonderful for multiple families. Everything that you would need for a weeks stay is included. We were in direct contact with the owner via email at any time if we had any questions or even problems-not to say that we had any problems. The cottage is easily accessible to Hwy 1 and the rest of midcoast Maine including Bath, Freeport, Boothbay, Damariscotta and Rockland/Camden. Hope to come back next year.
