Description of the South Thomaston vacation cottage rental
The "Lighthouse Cottage"
A wonderful large cottage on the ocean’s edge with panoramic views. Drink your morning coffee watching the sunrise on the expansive oceanfront deck. Spend your days exploring sea life among the rocks, watching the seals and seabirds, walking in the woods, or watching the lobster boats out front. Bring your kayak to launch from our small pebble beach right in front. The clear night sky is filled with stars close enough to touch! Fall asleep listening to the water lap at the shore. Antiquing, fine dining, museums, hiking and golf are just a sample of many ways to spend the day - if you can tear yourself away.

The main level has an open concept kitchen, dining and living room. There is also a full bathroom and laundry area. The cottage has three bedrooms and 1 3/4 bathrooms. The large master bedroom on the main level has a king-sized bed and overlooks the ocean. Upstairs you’ll find two more bedrooms, one with a view of the woods with a trundle bed, the other with a queen bed and a wonderful ocean view. This cottage is fully outfitted, linens, towels, including a dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer, and fireplace. We also provide cable television, DVD player and wireless internet access.
Area Information
Spruce Head is a small lobster-fishing village on Penobscot Bay in midcoast Maine. The nearest city is Rockland, about ten minutes away. There is a small airport in Owls Head with commercial flights to Boston and facilities for private aircraft. Nearby Thomaston, Rockport and Camden are beautiful towns with small shops and galleries. Lighthouses, museums, restaurants, art galleries, numerous summer festivals, hiking, fishing, shopping, day cruises and more are all available within a half-hour drive. And of course, there is lobster to eat everywhere. Or, even better, buy it fresh and bring it back to enjoy on your own deck, taking in the view.

Fantastic location for exploring the local area and as a home base for visiting Lighthouses along the shore. The view from the deck is spectacular and the comfort and amenities of Lighthouse Cottage...well, perfection. We felt at home in the cozy atmosphere and look forward to returning.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for letting us know how much you enjoyed our cottage. You were able to do all your exploring of the Lighthouses of Maine and still get to enjoy the view. I know you were on the go most of the time, but I'm very happy that you stopped and relaxed on the deck, too.
Happy Holidays and we look forward to seeing you again.

Magnificent location

This was our second stay at Patty and Paul's lovely house, and yet again, it exceeded all expectations. From the moment we arrived, personal touches from the owners added a friendly welcome. The house is beautiful, comfortable (huge bed, fluffy pillows, heated bathroom floor... too much to list!),well appointed, and a great base for exploring the area. Patty is a great host, and very concerned with ensuring an optimal visit. The view is spectacular at all times, and there is an accessible beach at low tide. We hated to leave, and look forward to visiting again.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

I'm so sorry we missed you this year. However, we do have to go home at sometime! I'm glad you enjoyed the changes. I forgot I did them in the bedroom. Out of sight, out of mind. I home your next visit we will be up there. I'm so glad you enjoyed the weather and the view. After 2 trips out from the repair person. We believe the problem is fixed. At least until next June! Thank you for being so understanding and enjoying what we have to offer.

3rd time stay, each time gets better!

Once again, an incredible week with many, many memories! The home and accommodations are much more then expected from a house rental. Patty and Paul are your Inn Keepers who become your family next door making your stay warm and comfortable. The views are intense, eagles diving, ducks saying hi, just perfect. All right out the back door. We rent a kayak since you have your own beach, right out the back door. Did I mention doggy friendly?!? We love coming here since we can bring Rusty, our Lab whose right at home retrieving tennis balls in the ocean for hours!!! Family friendly, comfortable, lobster everywhere, can bring the doggy, so many sights!!! We'll be back again! Rusty has some ideas :)!

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Thank you. We look forward to having you and the family every year. It's very easy with all of you and we love that you enjoy our cottage so much. Rusty is a love. I'm glad you feel at home. That's what we strive for with our cottages. We want you to feel at home. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review for future guests.
Looking forward to your return.

Lighthouse Cottage

We had a wonderful time at Lighthouse Cottage. Location was great and the cottage was well equipped and maintained beautifully. Having the owner living next door was a big plus for any questions or information that we needed. Can't imagine a better place to stay while exploring the beautiful Maine coast. We would definitely recommend staying at Lighthouse Cottage.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the wonderful review. We enjoyed you, Janet, Ed and Charlie. What a great way to spend time with people you love. I'm glad you found us and it was all you had hoped Maine would be for all of you.
Please come back soon. We love sharing our View.
Take care and enjoy the rest of the summer.
Thank you.

Wowed by the view

When we arrived at the cottage and walked in the door we were delighted by the view of the water through the panoramic glass patio doors. The cottage was clean and ready for visitors. We found a loaf of fresh bread and a jar of blueberry jam on the dining room table to welcome us. A very nice touch and delicious too. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of blankets and towels. We did expect bunk beds in the one room but it was a trundle so we still had the 4th bed to sleep on. The living room had plenty of seating forthe 4 of us. The area was great to see and all the people we came across and talked to were very friendly. We had a great time seeing the area and sitting at the cottage on the deck. The view made it hard to read but the reading could wait the view couldn't.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

I'm so glad the view was the only interuption for your reading. Thank you so much for sharing your experience at Lighthouse Cottage.
In May, when I arrived this year, we removed the bunk bed. I'm sorry I didn't notify you of the change. The trundle makes the room feel larger and easier to move around.
We are so pleased that you found our cottage to your liking and I hope all of you return to Lighthouse some day, soon.
Thank you and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful

We had the most amazing week! The cottage is just perfect and the view from the deck is beautiful. The first thing you see when you come in the door is the amazing view. We were in love from that moment on. The cottage is lovingly furnished and well equipped with everything you need. The area is perfect for shopping, touring and seeing nature at it's best. We would love to come back to this very spot.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Sally and all the Ladies,
Thank you. We appreciate your positive input regarding our Lighthouse Cottage. We feel the same way about our little place on the Ocean. I hope you do make it back our way. It would be nice to have you stay with us again. This time, I will plan on being around more.
I'm so happy that you had a wonderful week and had a great time with the ladies. Thank you for understanding. It was a pleasure having you at our cottage.

Columbus Weekend Getaway

There was no better place to be spending the Columbus Day weekend than at The Lighthouse in Thomaston. The air was brisk, but the cottage was warm and cozy when we arrived, thanks to a wonderful (and romantic) gas fireplace. We knew the cottage was supposed to be near the water, but it was only when the sun rose the next morning that we discovered we were only a couple of feet from the ocean. We drank our coffee in bed while watching the osprey, ducks and gulls play right outside our window. Once up, we moved to the deck and continued to take in the nonstop show of bird life, lobstermen, and the occasional seal. And right below our deck were the steps down to our very own private sandy beach! The cottage had everything we needed: a well supplied kitchen, hot shower, comfortable bed, and amazing view. The many extras, such as flat screen tv, games, and books made the place feel very homey. The owners were incredibly nice, and even though they were much older than we are, they were very cool to talk to, and they had lots of great ideas about what to do in the area. My only complaint was that we didn't have enough time at the Lighthouse! We definitely will be back!

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Wow, thank you for the wonderful review...I only have one issue of concern....
The owners .... much older? UMMMMMMMMmmmmm! :)
Love to have you back any time.
It was a great visit and wonderful weather! We all lucked out!
Mayber Happy Hour should be on the deck next time!
We will be watching for your return...

Relaxing, comfortable, homey

We had a most wonderful experience with our stay at Island View Light House Cottage. We were fortunate in that the weather was perfect but the accomodations would have made the stay great anyway. The innkeepers were so friendly and lived in a cottage nearby which made any requests answered very quickly. Paul and Patty were so helpful with restaurant and other recommendations. The location is near Rockland and Camden both of which have good restaurants and activities. Great for 2 couples or a family with kids. We would definitely recommend and come back ourselves. This location makes a great homebase for visiting all of the mid coast area. We woke to beautiful sunrises off the deck and lovely afternoons watching the lobster fishermen checking traps and an eagle circling nearby. Locations is only a few steps down to the ocean. The pictures accurately depict property.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Maine. It was a pleasure to finally meet you. I hope our paths will cross in GA, Too! Sorry about the Gov. Shut down...really makes us think when it will change our vacation plans!
Take care and I hope we see you in GA and ME!
Thank you.

Chris and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lighthouse Cottage. The cottage was fully stocked with everything we needed in terms of cooking and kitchen utensils. Chris and I had a couple of lobster and steamer feasts sitting out on the deck overlooking the water. The location of the cottage was great as well. We were able to quickly get to Rockland and Port Clyde for some adventures. Waterman's Lobster Shack is also only a 1/2 mile away and was super yummy! We also brought our dog Gracie and the cottage was set up perfectly for her as well. We did not need to worry about her messing anything up as the cottage is set up to be very user friendly and easy to sweep up the sand. She, as well as us, really enjoyed the beach. Gracie was brave enough to swim while we watched! I highly recommend the cottage. We had a great stay, Patty is great, and we look forward to coming back.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

I'm glad it all worked out well with the cottage and Gracie enjoyed herself. You seemed to have hit all of the highlights for a week visit. Sounds like you were able to make some great memories. We look forward to your return.
Thank you.

Paradise in Maine

This was our family's second visit to this wonderful home and we are already booked to come back next year! Incredibly gracious and friendly hosts, Patty and Paul will personalize your vacation. Pet friendly, oh boy is this home pet friendly! Rusty (our Lab) was treated like a member of the family. With the ocean right out of the back door, we kayak right from the property's own beach! Eagle and osprey watching, lobster boats humming in the morning greet you at breakfast, peaceful and so quiet at night! It is so relaxing, you can find it difficult to want to leave the home and explore. But when you do, the home is perfectly and conveniently located in the middle of the Maine coast. It is Maine, it is paradise.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

We are so please you enjoyed yourself with your family. We agree that it is "Paradise". We are looking forward to your return next year, and Rusty too!
Thank you.

Wonderful Maine

We spent the month of June at the Lighthouse cottage owned by Patty and Paul. What a wonderful time we had - such a comfortable home away from home with a view that cannot be beat. We awoke to beautiful sunrises with fascinating sightings of eagles, osprey, great blue herons, and even the occasional seal. Looking out onto the island dotted Penobscot Bay was always a joy. Patty and Paul were friendly and wonderful hosts offering helpful suggestions - and we loved their dogs, Khloe and Mollie - who happily greeted us each day. The Cottage is conveniently located for many excursions - Rockland, Camden and Port Clyde are close by, offering boat trips, hiking, kayak and bike rentals, wonderful restaurants, fabulous seafood from local fishermen and so much more. There are even three lighthouses within a short distance. And a visit to Monhegan Island or Vinalhaven is a special treat. And if we did not want to go anywhere, the cottage was a great place to stay and relax with a good book. Looking forward to returning to the Lighthouse.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Rick and Kathleen,
Thank you. We enjoyed having you with us during the month of June. It was always nice to know you were only a cottage away.
My garden has grown and my zucchini did live after all! I have had to harvest them and give a couple away. Plant by number works!!!!
We look forward to your return to Island View Cottage.

We had a wonderful time! The lighthouse cottage was beautiful. Patty and Paul were very friendly and offered many suggestions on places to see while we were in Maine. The ocean was so close and we enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean and drinking our coffee. We would highly recommend this property!

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Connie and Keith,
It was a pleasure having you stay in our cottage. The Lighthouse Cottage is getting a new roof today!
I'm glad you enjoyed your week and we look forward to your return.
I am having my coffee now looking over the ocean on a beautiful, sunny morning in Maine. Quite relaxing.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Lighthouse Cottage.
Have a wonderful upcoming Holiday Season.

We anticipated this vacation for so long and it was well worth the wait! The cottage was exactly as advertised and the owners were friendly and helpful. We had beautiful weather and found great food and things to do very close by. We were very sad to leave and are hoping to be able to come back again next year.

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the Lighthouse Cottage. We enjoyed getting to know you. Looking forward to your visits in the future. We will be there!
Thank you.

Most amazing view - just what we wanted

If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy the Maine coast line - you simply can't beat this lovely cottage. The only reason it missed getting 5 stars is (we would have liked air conditioning and better wifi) ...but that is so miner compared to all the other lovely aspects. We will come back...need i say more?

Patty Fitzpatrick

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for the nice review. You were so lucky to be here during the 11 nights of humid weather. So, my dad always told us. We had some very unusual warm weather during your stay.
The WiFi can be a tricky item near the ocean. We will see what we can do to boost the signal.
Again, thank you for taking the time to review our property. Hope to see you in the future.
