Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Kathie-



We just got home and just quickly wanted to thank you for sharing your fantastic

home. We had such a nice week and can't stop talking about how much we loved

Maine as well as your home and gardens (and view!). As usual, we could not

fit all the activities we were hoping to accomplish into one week, but we had so

much fun hiking, canoeing, sea combing, and eating. Oh-- the kids also fit in

a lobster boat ride with Captain Jack, which they definitely enjoyed. Your

house was in the most perfect location and was such a comfortable place to

return to after a day full of adventures.



Thanks again!!

QUINTESSENTIAL MAINE

  • 5 of 5
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.

A PERFECT ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son (11 years old), my parents and I spent a magical week at this beautiful home last week. Our favorite thing had to be sitting on the deck each morning with a cup of coffee and enjoying the amazing view of Rockport harbor (we never wanted to leave). We also loved the beautiful gardens, playing frisbee on the lawn, eating amazing meals in the sunroom off the kitchen and just marveling at this impressive home. It felt like we had stepped back in time (the house was built in 1870) but could also enjoy all the modern conveniences - including a commercial stove, a fully stocked pantry, a flat screen TV, wireless Internet, and remodeled bathrooms. Needless to say, we also took full advantage of all the area has to offer - hiking up Mt. Battie and Mt. Megunticook (breathtaking views), renting kayaks to use on Lake Megunticook, sailing on the Schooner Olad, shopping in Camden, visting the Lightouse Museum in Rockland (on one of only two rainy days we had), enjoying a wine tasting and tour at the Cellardoor winery, seeing a musical at the Camden Opera House, and enjoying delicious lobster mac and cheese at Cappy's in Camden. What also made our visit special were the extra special touches provided - fresh flowers displayed in the kitchen and bathrooms and a wonderful welcome message left on the kitchen chalkboard. The owner, Kathie, and the caretakers of this home truly try to make you feel like you have a home away from home. Kathie also took great care to check on us upon arrival to make sure all our needs were met. I would highly recommend a stay at this lovely home. It was a vacation that our family will always remember!

SUMMER PERFECTION IN ROCKPORT...

  • 5 of 5
This lovely, impeccably cared for, perfectly situated home far exceeded our expectations. We spent a week here with a large group including four adults and five young children and the home and it's surroundings were the perfect fit for our group. As stunning as the pictures are they don't do the home justice, particularly not the view from that front porch over Rockport harbor - I dream about that view...

FABULOUS RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house during the last week of August and were very pleased. It is spacious, functional, and well-maintained. Our young kids loved the garden area and we spent lots of time in the yard and on the patio. It’s a very short (but steep) walk into the center of town Rockport, including to Shepherd’s Pie, the lone restaurant, which was excellent. The view of the bay is fabulous. Walking to Graffam Bros at the end of the street for lobster rolls can’t be beat. Boat/bike rentals are a two-minute drive, and Camden is about 1.5 miles. There was plenty to do within walking distance or very short drives with the kids – lakes, hikes, lobster boats, parks, etc. Our kids spent hours collecting hermit crabs at Walker Park while our toddler played on the swings. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive. The house is very nice and it made for a great family vacation.

GREAT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely historic property! It had an exceptional amount of living space - living room, family room, library with space for setting up games and 2 computers, large dining room and modern kitchen along with a roomy deck overlooking Rockport Harbor. It was welcoming and immaculate when we arrived - even down to vases with fresh flowers from the extensive gardens. The owner was very helpful both before & during our stay with recommendations about things to do and places to eat. It felt more like staying at a friend's place, than a typical vacation rental.

The location was great - within easy walking distance of Shepherds Pie restaurant, Graffums seafood mart & lobster roll shack, and the harbor. We rented bikes from Maine Sport (close by), and enjoyed several easy bike rides into Camden and around the area.

Our favorite activity was going out on a lobster boat one morning (cratetoplate.com) It was quite unique to see how the lobsters are caught, and help with it - and it included 4 lobsters from our catch for dinner that night. Other activities we enjoyed were golfing at Samoset, sailing with Captain Don on the sailboat Liberation, hiking Camden Hills Park, and visiting the Cellar Door Winery in Lincolnville Beach for a relaxing wine tasting and outdoor lunch.

A BEAUTIFUL WEEK IN CAMDEN

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved our stay in this historic home. This beautifully decorated house, with lush gardens, and beautiful vista has the luxuries of a hotel and the intimacy and comfort of a lovely private home. Our family (ages 20-83) all loved our week there. We look forward to returning to Camden and to Diamond Hill.
