Perfect home to experience coastal Maine.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Maine for the past 15 years. The property on Samoset Road provided us with one of the most enjoyable vacations we’ve had to-date. The home is very comfortable and the single-story layout was a huge plus for my wife for suffers from MS and struggles with multi-story homes. The views of Rockland harbor and nearby Owl’s Head were unbelievable and the expansive backyard provided ample space for games (and the occasional deer sighting around dusk). Beyond the views, I don’t think you can beat the location when you consider you are less than 5 minutes from the grocery store and Samoset Resort, a must see for any golfer.

On a more personal note, the owner helped my family out with a very unfortunate situation on our original rental in downtown Rockland. He was able to accommodate our request on very short notice and was quick to address any needs we had to make our trip more comfortable. As a frequent visitor to Maine, I would highly recommend either of his properties on Samoset Road if you truly want to enjoy coastal Maine as it is meant to be.

This was a nice house. Fantastic location, walking distance to the lighthouse and on a great street. The view was gorgeous and the rental was easy. I would highly recommend this property and would rent here again if I am in the area.

Best vacation ever in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our daughter and her husband and his sister used this place to put 1700 miles on our rental car in 10 days exploring Maine from Bar Harbor to Portland and all the way up to Baxter State Park.What a nice place and the home inside was great. The view in back was awesome and the food in Rockland was very good. Thanks Chris for letting us use your home.

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!!!
