House is located on a well travelled road that leads to a lighthouse...a good walk. There was a pretty and restful view from the back of the home with a big yard facing the harbor. The Rental Owner's interaction on arrival was through a telephone call we made to him(doors were unlocked) and the owner's daughter. He had to be absent from the state during our stay.To list a few problems of this dog friendly home may be helpful to understand the "overall experience" rating consideration.There was no King Bed as listed.The hide-a-bed in living room may have been king.All furniture was well used. Many essential, advertised items were in disrepair: Clothes washer operated only in one cycle,dryer was inoperable,microwave lacked a turntable,only one worn blanket present in linen closet for three beds,mostly threadbare towels/linen, no towel bars in bathrooms(actually there was one still attached to a wall),one lamp in each bedroom(one was inoperable), the one floor lamp in living room had shade attached via a rope. The vacuum cleaner full and inoperable with no instructions,lower tray in dishwasher lacked wheels and sometime prior to our visit had chipped most of the dinnerware.We purchased a set for our use.Late model TVS(living room and MBR) and excellent cable service was present, although we did not use on this vacation. One evening two coyotes were viewed near the shoreline of the property which reminded us of our Southern California experiences where they walk the streets looking for food(thus, the walled homes).No directions were available for all appliances including stove,fireplace and no reference literature available for local merchants,restaurants, stores,laundromats etc.There were no privacy curtains for all of the windows including the bathrooms and finally, there was no key available for the doors with only a garage door opener offered.
Loved the harbor view and loved the local restaurants and seafood. Rockland merchants were all welcoming and pleasant. During our week's stay the weather was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Well I am definitely sorry me and my wife were not there to greet your family, But as I had stated my elderly mother was hospitalized and I needed to be in Louisville for that family matter. My daughter by the way was there to help in anyway she could. We left doors open for guest as they didn't know when they would arrive and the keys were left in the sofa table drawer. They were still there when guest left. The bed in the Master Suite is a King size bed. The Washer and Dryer are in 100% working order and I really don't know how to address that issue. The microwave was not designed to have a turntable, Towel Bars are located on the bathroom walls. All 3 lamps is the bedrooms are operable, The cleaning lady told us that one had been unplugged. As far as the Coyotes we live 2 doors down and have for 15 years and we have never seen a coyote here. I do apologize as the cleaning lady told us that the vacuum bag did need changing and there was a package of replacement bags in the closet where the vacuum was kept.

In closing I would like to say that if I had not been in Louisville on an urgent family matter that I would have greeted the guest personally. Maybe then they would have felt more at ease. If we had been aware of these issues even though we were out of town our daughter would have came down and shown the guest how to operate the washer dryer and would have helped you guys with any issue you had. When a person rents a rental house they usually don't have a staff like a hotel does and therefore that is the difference between renting a house and a hotel room. My suggestion to the guest that left this review is that they should reevaluate whether a rental house meets their needs as I believe a Hotel would be more in order.

Perfect!

First let me say that our stay at this house was one of our best trips to Maine! We have been visiting the Rockland area for several years, and we always make a point to rent from this owner. Mr. Nolan, his wife, and family are the most hospitable and kind people one could ever meet.

The accommodations were impeccable! We had everything we needed for the ultimate vacation. Everything in the house was spotless and in perfect working order. We felt at home there! The house is located on a quiet street but easily accessible and only minutes away from grocery stores, shopping, and downtown Rockland. The backyard offers a tranquil view of Rockland's working harbor, and the historical Breakwater Lighthouse is within walking distance.

As an added bonus, Mr. Nolan is very knowledgeable of the area and was kind and helpful in offering the local perspective on delicious places to eat and must see attractions. We look forward to returning to the Rockland area and THIS house for years to come!

Awesome Home close to everything

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house in October last year for a week. The owners were there to get us all set up when we arrived and we really liked the location. The house is located in close proximity to the local Golf Resort. We loved eating dinner downtown at the various restaurants . We would definitely recommend the location as it is close to grocery shopping, several nice coffee shops and downtown where there are a bunch of small neat shops. It is also about 10 minutes to downtown Camden, Another great place to shop. At the end of the street the house is on is the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse. It has a wonderful walkway out to the lighthouse. From the walkway you can see lobstermen catching lobsters and see all kinds of boat traffic. Also a plus was that the owners son-in-law is a lobsterman and they were able to get us lobster at wholesale prices. I would really recommend this house for a nice trip to Midcoast Maine. The house looks to have been built in the 60's and the owners look like they have completely refinished the inside. Highly recommend!!!
