Other Things to NoteVilla Mojo is set outside town with cleared woods between the house and the river. We strongly urge you to use bug spray should you want to wander through the woods! Tick & mosquito bites bring on disease... we are not responsible!!

The SpaceA bit like "glamping". Distant river views. Good for one to three night stay. Electricity but no fridge (icebox provided, ice available next door). Outdoor grill for cooking. Toilet in cabin. Antique chamber bowl and pitcher for washing. Showers in house available for two night stay or more. Great for a silent spiritual retreat or folks who love the calming beauty of the outdoors. Best for early risers around 6:30 to the call of roosters crowing. Guest AccessGuest can use our shower in the farmhouse. Nice hiking trail across the road and along the St George. Interaction with GuestsWe enjoy our guest and are available, especially per informing them for "things to do". We are friendly but also fine with guests who prefer to keep to themselves. We like to give people space if they need it and our default is to respect that privacy. The NeighborhoodThe cabin is located in farm among the lovely hayfields overlooking the St George River on our little saltwater farm. It is in our back field in view of our house but fairly private. Guest park in our driveway and walk next to the barn and in our back yard to get to it. There are farm animals (horse, rabbits, chickens) so be prepared to awaken to a rooster by 6:15 to start your day exploring and experiencing the beauty of Maine. There is a little store in walking distance and a nice ice cream outdoor place a couple of blocks south towards the Harjula Farm. This is hay country overlooking the saltwater, tidal St George river where the first British explorer in the area- George Waymouth set foot with his crew in 1605. They anchored their ship, The Archangel, at the mouth of the St George River near Allen Island and boarded the Light Horseman and rowed up the St George to what is now Thomaston/South Thomaston. Sunsets are really lovely and the labyrinth is nice to walk and gaze on. It's a nice "base camp" to use to explore the area. Experience kayakers can use our kayaks on sea or fresh water and we will leave a list of nice hikes and boat tours in the area. Plenty of art in Rockland and a great restaurants all around. Takes 9 minutes to get to Rockland, and 15 minutes to get to Camden. The "Forrest Gump" lighthouse and boat to Monhegan is 15 minutes down our road. Tiny Cabin is great for nature lovers. Getting AroundNo public transportation. Country store next door with pizza and sandwiches open until 9:00pm. 2 minute drive from Thomaston, 9 minute drive to Rockland. 15 minute drive to Camden. 18 minutes to Port Clyde. Other Things to NoteIf you love history and need an indoor activity we are just down the street from "Montpelier"- The General Knox Museum. Owls Head Transportation Museum (5 minutes away) it is awesome and perfect alternative if it rains. The Wyeth Center, The Farnsworth House and The Farnsworth Art Museum are nine minutes away in Rockland and have some amazing art. Ask the Farnsworth is The Olson House in Cushing is open (my favorite). There is a lighthouse museum and a small boat museum in Rockland. In nice weather the breakwater in Rockland is a interesting walk to the light house. Owls head has a lighthouse walk too. Some fridays in Rockland are "Art Walk" nights. You can take an awesome ferry ride to Vinalhaven Island and back out of Rockland, or a more awesome schooner ride on the Olad out of Camden and the most awesome of all is a day trip to Monhegan Island out of Port Clyde. There are some boat rides in Rockland Harbor and a nice beach- "Lucia Beach" (aka Birch Point State Park") give minutes from the cabin. I leave some hiking maps in the cabin. Beach Hill is a gentle walk overlooking Camden. Camden is a fun harbor town to visit and you can drive up Mount Battie at Camden State Park for some great views from an old Norman Tower (replica). For more rigorous hikes check out the George's River Land Trust (email hidden).

The SpacePAUSE Listing Begins: 6/15/2015 The whole interior is a time warp, but only a vestige remains of the former elegance of the place. Perfection is an illusion as what was a millionaires colony in the past is now a village sustaining the presence of its history. Knox Museum is a bedrock of history from the Revolution. The gems are natural in juxtaposition from the St. George River to Penobscot Bay, and contemporary culture to tourism. What was once a raucous town of Lobsterman has been all but tamed by Linda Bean in Tenants Harbor, but Fisherman's Co-ops are on the rise! Be sure to stop in at STONEFISH where dreams lie waiting and stories unfold. A day trip out to Port Clyde on the St. George Peninsula, which is a point of land between the towns of Thomaston and Rockland, is also a departure point for Monhegan Island. A Renaissance of downtown Rockland was led over decades by the Farnsworth Art Museum, recently cited as "The NYC of Mid-Coast", and the Wyeth Center are now in the company of the new site of CMCA. The Captain, a Master Mariner and wholesale agent was born about 1821. Emily Meservey became his wife in 1849 and soon thereafter purchased land on Main Street. A local architect by the name of James Overlock was hired to build the house and subsequently a cottage on the land for a woman artist. The foundation stones still remain for further research and holds the possibility to rebuild as a studio for an artist residency in the future. In coming years, a sculpture path integrating collective space will meander throughout this five acres. Upon entry, a stairwell in the Italianate style of the period is central to four main rooms which the host will peruse with you when you arrive. Old School comfort with period furniture in an eclectic mix of 1950's souvenirs reminiscent of family travels in Southeast Asia, African art, and large-scale abstract paintings are featured in 2015. Architectural details abound as are restoration features both complete and incomplete. As a guest from France remarked, "You can feel the soul of this house." The design of the structure yields a cool interior without air-conditioning. Weekend: Friday Open Check-in. Please email same day estimate of arrival. The Reading Room features first light and shade of the tree on Main Street; double bed; period sofa + four chairs for 1 or 2 persons. The Pink Room has a king-size bed, radio, writing table + 2 seats without views obscured by a curtain, or let the light in. The rooms may be switched at the same weekend price of $100. per night/ 2nd person $77. in either room. The Highlands Coffee House opens early just 1 block from PAUSE where catering can be arranged in advance of your stay or food may be ordered in. Thomaston Cafe is located across the street from PAUSE. Slipway Restaurant & Deck is a 3 block walk next to Lyman Morse and the Public Landing on the St. George River and a picture perfect sunset destination. Both excellent! Bike Riders: Mon.- Tues.- Wed./ Evening Check-in_Check-out 10 a.m. NE room: 1 person only w/sleeping bag on chaise / 2-3-night max / and w/o access to kitchen $56. per night. The Highlands Coffee House opens early and is just 1 block from PAUSE. Studio Bldg. Retreats: Sun. 7 p.m. Check-in thru Wed. 3 p.m. Check-out. For those participating bring sleeping bags unless otherwise arranged in advance. Thank you! $56. per person per night itchen. Although the house is on Main Street the front porch offers a reprieve. Resting my bones there, just now, the sound of leaves stirred in the wind at 65*. It was 90* in Boston today. The backyard is wild, but an ongoing project is slowly progressing to alter the outcome of a freak storm last winter. There is enough rustic space near the house to sit at a table in the shade and read a book. A meditation in a glance can be as simple as observing fiddleheads catch light in the early evening. The night sky is brilliant! Thank you for your inquiry and I look forward to welcoming you! Guest Access1st floor: restroom / 2nd floor: bath/shower + bedrooms. The water is HOT! Rise when you want. The kitchen is off-limits. Caterer arranged in advance or Order-In. Thomaston Cafe is across the street from the house; or The Highlands Coffee House is one block away, and next door, the Thomaston Grocery has a Deli. The Good Tern is a Natural Foods Store just east of downtown Rockland on Main Street and nearby The Kitchen Cafe, or circle back around to Cafe Miranda. Interaction with GuestsI respect your privacy and invite you to make Host inquiries via email. Please allow a day to respond to messages. The Thomaston Historical Society suggests a walking architectural tour otherwise referred to as 'The Museum in the Streets'. The Land Trusts are engaging destinations from rivers to field featuring unique vistas, gardens, or sculpture. The Saint George River Land Trust and The Langlais Art Trail come to mind as places to seek out. To attend an evening performance, you'll want to see what's happening at several venues and possibly purchase tickets in advance. Suggestions are as follows: Camden Opera House or Bay Chamber Concerts and The Strand Theater to mention a few. Artwalk Maine dates are October 2, November 6, and December 4. Check out Fog Bar & Cafe on Main St. in Rockland for an appetizer including vegan choices, or for coffee + meals always Rock City. Fine restaurants: 3 CROW on Main Street; or The Pearl located on the end of the Rockland Pier; and for an intimate dinner go to PRIMO, the Tuscany of Northern Maine. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood on Main Street in Thomaston accommodates enough of my needs to live without dependence on a car. Thomaston Library, Thomaston Grocery, and U.S.P.O. are within 1 city block of PAUSE. You'll find this location to be central to bike routes, a public landing for kayaks, or a walk up from the dock if your boat is in for repair at Lyman Morse. What would a dream day in Rockland look like for a young woman? Well, there are so many choices! Breakfast at Rock City Cafe + a look at what's new at Hello Books in the back; then stop into Black Parrot to check out the new lines to wear to the Farnsworth Summer Party. On to Archipeligo, The Island Institute Store for some little natural "Thank you" card for a friend + over to Huston-Tuttle for art supplies. A walk across the street to be on time for an appointment at RHEAL for a facial + massage to mellow my outlook, and then meet Cy over at Thai Tugboat for a smile! That's just one day, but I have more ideas on the subject of what to do. Just ask prior to your visit!

Vernon Maysayesva, Founder of Black Mesa Trust is one of the speakers invited to Fall Voices when the Bioneers Conference will be beamed locally. Other Things to NoteImprovisation is the code of operation: A vital dialogue has begun around an off-site project in due course, but until then quests are welcome. Eventually, weekly meetings will be scheduled as the dialogue develops with other individuals + groups. 2015/16 Group details include: 1st floor entry leads to a front parlor with seating for 12. The dining room seats 8 (+ 12 or more). The Den accommodates up to 12 for (small) screenings. The small kitchen is available for Caterer.

The SpaceRiver Chase Cottage is a quiet relaxing environment completely surrounded by nature. If you lucky in the morning you can see the neighborhood Bald Eagle perched on the tree limb by the shore or watch as the wild turkeys make their way for breakfast. See the boats as they head up and down river to start the day as the sun rises over the waterfront. Grab your coffee and sit down on the granite bench by the water or walk to the shoreline and sit on the ledge hidden away from life's worries and noise. River Chase has a completely renovated interior with all modern conveniences and yet still has the old cottage feel. You will simply enjoy every minute of peace at River Chase. However when your mind and body wants to get moving you are just minutes away from shops, museums, sail boat rides and restaurants,. Oh did we mention Maine Lobster? Rockland is the Lobster Capital of the World. We hope to see you and your guest at our little get away. Please note we are required by law to collect a state lodging tax of 9% of the room rental at the time of check in payable in cash or personal check. Guest AccessAs a guest you have the entire house this includes an available washer and dyer, plus a dishwasher, cable TV with over 100 channels and Wi-Fi . Complete access to a shared (with us when we are there) 260 feet of tidal waterfront, watch as the locals dig the flats during low tide or as the lobster and pleasure boats navigate the river to and from the Atlantic Ocean during high tide. Every hour is a different scene! You and your guest can relax and enjoy the large lawn great for games or roasting marshmallows by the fire pit. Interaction with GuestsWe are always just a text message or call away should you have any questions, needs or want local advice for restaurants or sight seeing. Some weekends we stay on site in a smaller cottage by the water so an answer to a question or a glass of wine is only a short walk. However do not worry we respect your privacy and will not interact unless you want us to. Our only goal is to make your stay so great that you come back again. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is a waterfront road with single homes. A very quiet area although you may hear the horses every once in a while that live next door at our neighbors. The road is a dead end so traffic in minimal. A great place to get away from the stresses of every day life. Other Things to NoteCushing was the summer town of Andrew Wyatt and the town is still as beautiful as when he painted it. The Mid Coast area is a great place to vacation and Cushing is a great mix of both worlds. Enjoy the busy streets in the tourist towns of Rockland and Camden and then at the end of the day slip back to River Chase for some quiet time. When visiting in the Mid Coast you can visit the Farnsworth museum or try out the many restaurants and shops, take a sail boat cruise or a ferry to an island. Visit Monhegan Island, the island of artist or spend a day at the Owls Head Transportation museum or visit several light houses in the area. A little way further north and you come to Camden where the mountains meet the sea. A town famous for its harbor and shopping. The only problem you will have while staying at River Chase is finding time to do everything you want to, so we suggest adding a few more days to your vacation! We hope to see you soon.

From my place you can walk to downtown Thomaston where there antique stores and a grocery. I call my house the "boathouse garden" because inside it is made like a boat and outside are lovely perennial gardens. It is a peaceful, serene setting with view of 5 acre field which extends to the St. George River.

Years ago my family rented a Cape Cod house for a week. The beds were very uncomfortable as was every piece of furniture, and we weren't centrally located. We were exhausted. I learned from that experience and that is why this house provides: comfortable beds and furniture, cleanliness, privacy, a well equipped kitchen, enough bathrooms, plenty of lawn space, beautiful views, and is centrally located. You will enjoy an upstairs den where the kids can hang-out & watch TV or play games, a nursery, and if your concern is for a handicapped or elderly person, the first floor bedroom with large bathroom, and the side door ramp are the answer.
