If beauty, space and serenity are what you are looking for in a Maine vacation, this is the home for you. The house sits up on a hill overlooking the spectacular Rockport Harbor. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning drinking our coffee as we watched the boats and birds. The gardens surrounding the house are lovely and well tended. The night sky there was stunning as well....Im not sure Ive ever seen so many stars. Rockport is peaceful yet is right down the road from the bustling and charming Camden. Camden was a favorite destination, yet Rockland and Boothbay are quite close by.
The house is comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. A favorite spot is the library filled with books for all tastes. There was plenty of room for our family to spread out, yet has great gathering areas such as the kitchen and den to spend time together.
The owner, Kathie, is wonderful to work with. She is available to help with everything such as places to go and sights to see while in Maine. She is quite attentive to any need you might have. You couldnt ask for a nicer landlord.
Some of the highlights for us included a trip out on the schooner Olad in Camden, a lobster trip out of Rockland with Captain Jack as well as visits to the various lighthouses such as Breakwater and Bald Head Island. The restaurant down the hill from the house, Shepard's Pie, now ranks as one of my all time favorites.
Our family highly recommends this home for your stay in Maine. It provides the most beautiful backdrop for the Maine experience. To say it is a special home is an understatement.
