My husband and I, and our teenage son, had a great vacation in this house. We already knew Rockland, and enjoyed being able to walk to the city center, with all its restaurants, shops, and the Farnsworth Museum. We like Amalfi's for dinner, and LuLu's on Oak street for ice-cream. We drove down to Port Clyde for a wonderful sea kayak trip. The house is neat, clean, very well equipped, and cosy. The wi-fi was very handy for researching day trips, and amusing the teenager. But the back porch just keeps pulling you out to stare at the view: there's always a boat leaving or a ferry returning, or gulls flocking around a fishing boat. There's a nice little town beach just across the grass. Oh, and the weather is perfect here, too. Warm and sunny, but not humid. An excellent vacation destination for anyone who wants a relaxing and independent trip.
