Fantastic Location, View & Home

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful Victorian home on a cove with a virtually private beach. The setup and attention to detail was excellent. Alex and his wife were great hosts. There was absolutely nothing to complain about. The beds were as comfortable as could be. It was just like sleeping in our owns beds. We read the reviews with comments about street noise from Route 1, but really it was a minor point. It quieted down during sleeping hours. If you closed the windows and put the AC on along with the white noise machine they provide in every bedroom it was fine. It had a full size grill, a nice deck and wrap around porch with furniture to make the most of the beautiful bay and island views. All while you enjoy the beautiful fresh ocean air. Talk about convenient, 5 minutes to Rockland. Five minutest to Rockport and just five minutes to the jewel of the Maine coast, Camden. Whether you want beaches, hiking, stunning panoramic views, light houses, picturesque harbors or quintessential seaport villages and towns this area has it all! I would highly recommend the Irish Rose Victorian house.

Quality family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I loved the name...The Irish Rose! Upon arrival, my first impression was that it was a darling home with a breathtaking view of Camden Cove from the side porch and back deck. The interior was equally charming with a great working kitchen and all the comforts of home. The house was a great size and immaculate. The yard was plenty big for kids to play games and the cove was awesome to launch kayaks or to simply walk and collect stones.

After a full day of exploring the many sights the area has to offer, it was fun to return to the Irish Rose for a swim, cocktails and appetizers, to read, listen to music, and cook dinner.... rounding out the evening with family sharing the day's excursions by campfire (complete with s'mores!)

Each year for the past several years, we have made many happy memories at the Irish Rose including a very special one last summer where my daughter's marriage proposal took place....was the perfect spot!

Alex and his wife couldn't be more gracious and helpful...am sure you'll love your experience at the Irish Rose!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the Irish Rose every August for the past 3 years. My Aunt and Uncle rent the house for the week and we make the drive from RI for 3-4 nights. We look forward to the trip every year just because of how relaxing and memorable it always is! After our first year there, my boyfriend (now husband) thought it would be a great idea to propose at the jetty in Samoset and charter a boat to bring us back to the house. Since the house and deck are overlooking the cove, we were able to have my mom meet us at the beach to watch us row in. Because we had such a great time the first year with our family, the Irish Rose was the perfect place to make more memories of our proposal and to share them with our family.

The layout of the house is perfect for a family get together but enough rooms where you could have alone time from the group. The two decks are perfect; one could be for the chatty bunch and the other for those who want to read in peace. I love how close it is to Samoset, Mt. Battie and also to Camden so we could do something different every day but not have to drive very far. Our family looks forward to this trip every year and we could not recommend it enough 

Great views, close to everything, we'll run, big

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here several times with extended family and it has been the highlight of our year. The house is run by hotel owners who have thought of all the details. You don't need to bring a thing in terms of linens, etc. There is a washer and dryer on site, which we've found really helpful. The house is big with beautuful porches for gathering. It's close to Rockport and Camden. It sits on a beautiful little cove. When the tide goes out you can walk out quite a ways in search of sea glass, tide pools and other treasures. We like to walk up to Samoset Resort and walk out to the lighthouse in the mornings. Alex and Siobhan are great owner/hosts. They give you space but can be there on short notice if you need them. Our son loves having the hotel pool at his disposal through the week. It's really a perfect place for an extended family vacation. Can't say enough. I've been meaning to write this since we got home and am just getting to it as we start to plan for next year.

Family vacation of a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 50th birthday celebration with children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. The Victorian era of the home was perfect. We had great family time enjoying the large living room, dining room and two porches. We enjoyed campfires every evening. We walked the beach, kayaked, canoed and walked to Samoset. The hosts were so accommodating. We enjoyed the pool at their Irish Claddaugh Motel just a few steps up the street. This location was great, close to shopping and activities.
