Tom and I moved to Maine in 1997 to pursue an uncomplicated life in a pristine environment with access to the ocean for sailing. We chose an updated period home that is comfortable with modern necessities, has excellent views of the harbor and ocean 365 days/year, and is within walking distance to a myriad of activities.

Carol Latta purchased this house in 1997

Location. Location.Location. Feel at one with Maine and the ocean at Latta's Harbor Haven. Although close to Camden, our home is actually located in less busy but still beautiful Rockport Harbor. The home is nicely appointed but comfortable to enjoy with your family.

The walls of Latta's Harbor Haven are decorated with paintings and photographs from our travels in Maine. My photo is on the cover of the Chamber's 'Discover the Jewel of the Maine Coast'. I will have this Guide sent to you. If you have a boat, our mooring and dinghy dock space is available.

A WONDERFUL STAY BY THE HARBOR

  • 5 of 5
We loved Latta's Harbor Haven, and stayed there for 8 nights in August, 2012. The nicely renovated house retained all of its its nineteenth century charm, and was filled with the owner's art. The view of the harbor from master suite never ceased to astound. We even used it as a backdrop for the picture on our annual Christmas card. Its just stunningly beautiful.

The location was perfect. The Town of Rockport may be quiet, but we were nevertheless able to walk downtown to a chamber music concert one night. There also is a great ice cream stand about two blocks the other way. Camden is a 5 minute drive. The convenient Central Maine location also made day trips to the north and the south a breeze.

We loved out stay in Central Maine, and chosing Latta's Harbor Haven made the trip all the more better.

Minutes from the bustle of Camden, we are in the center of Rockport Village and at the base of Rockport harbor. Rockport Harbor is home to Rockport Marine which attracts some of the world's more beautiful boats.

The Marine Park is quiet, small and spectacularly beautiful. The statue of Andre' the Seal along with 2 restored lime kilns and a steam engine are amongst the attractions that appeal to family picnics and swimming at Goodie's Beach.

You can walk to restaurants, music, galleries, and a wine shop near the house. Camden is only 1.5 miles.

Great walking and bicycling is available along Beauchamp Point. Don't forget to check out the Children's Chapel and the Belted Galloway 'Oreo Cookie' cows at Aldermere Farm. Hike Mt. Battie or stroll through Camden's many interesting retail establishments and waterfront restaurants.

Other Activities: RAYR coffee and wine shop, Cellar Door Winery, Shepard's Pie Restaurant,Salt Water Farm Restaurant, 3 Dog Restaurant, Market Basket takeout meals, Graffam's Fish Market, Fresh Lobster from the dock across the street on the Town Landing, Maine Center for Contemporary Art, Maine Media Photographic Workshops, Library, Bay Chamber Music offerings at the Opera House, YMCA, Pop the Cork, Lobster Festival, Blues Festival, Art Fairs,Classic Car Shows and Hill Climbs, Owls Head Transportation Museum.

Goodie's Beach and the Harbor Master's building with bathrooms is located just steps away down the path immediately across the street. Rockport Harbor is home to 100's of classic yachts and a fleet of working lobster boats. In addition, the Schooner Heron is docked within sight of the house. Located in the middle harbor is our mooring. This mooring is suitable for a full keel sailboat upto 42'in length. Our dedicated dinghy dock space is on the same dock as the Schooner Heron.Both the mooring and dinghy dock space are offered as a courtesy.

Golf: Goose River Public Golf Course is about 5 miles. Samoset Resort also has a beautiful course on the ocean....10 minutes away.

Ski: The Camden Snowbowl is 5 miles away. Terrific skiing, sledding and ice skating. The National Toboggan Races in February are a colorful costumed event not to miss!
