Located in South Thomaston, Maine on a small beach shared with other family owned cottages. Pleasant Beach is a horseshoe-shaped beach with areas of sand, bound by large rocks typical of the coast of Maine. Pleasant Beach is located in a sheltered cove of Penobscot Bay with no surf, making it ideal for young children, swimming or launching kayaks. Located at the mouth of the Wesskeag River, this is a popular spot for kayaking, allowing both access to both the ocean and the marsh areas of the river. The rocks at the mouth of the river is one of the best fishing locations in the area at low tide. No boat needed for fishing, just bring the rods! The cottage is elevated atop the rocks at the end of beach giving it a beautiful view of the ocean, offshore island, and lobster boats. Lobsters can be delivered to your front door by a local lobster-man who keeps his boat at the beach. Make your order in the morning and have them delivered fresh from the water in the afternoon!
