Tom and Roberta met in 1979 when they were camp counselors at one of New England's oldest summer camps. Their children continued the family tradition by attending the same New England summer camp . They love Maine with it's stunning rocky coastline. They always wanted to spend more time there. Finally, Tom and Roberta found the perfect location at Eastward on the Ocean.
Thomas & Roberta Thompson purchased this condo in 2014
The oceanfront condo is a perfect spot for relaxation and recreation.
Close proximity to all things beautiful,interesting, and recreational in Maine, but private enough to enjoy the tranquility of the ocean and the surrounding wooded landscape.
Sun-filled home with ocean views from every room--perfect for one or two couples. Very clean and spacious with no clutter. Owners are very friendly and responsive. Only downside for us was that the nice TV only got a few basic channels and we were not able to watch Red Sox (streaming not possible due to network area regulations--basic plus would solve the issue and we've gotten that at other area homes).
The 80 acre grounds are quiet and peaceful and give lots of places to take your morning walk. The rental unit gave a great sense of cottage and the remodelled kitchen was a joy to work in. 43 Eastward by the Ocean is convenient to shopping, restaurants and all sorts of places to visit and things to do. Rockport is ideally situated to be a home base for exploring coastal Maine and interior Maine. The owners were very intentional about ensuring that our stay was pleasant and problem free. I could not have asked for better.
Homes adorned with harvest decor, crisp air and a leaves changing from green to a kaleidoscope of colors …Maine is the perfect fall retreat! This Eastward on the Ocean condo is in the historic manor home with the charm of yesteryear and the amenities of today. Everything was sparkling clean! The kitchen and appliances are brand new and was stocked with everything we could imagine. Bedrooms are warm and inviting with cozy comforters to snuggle under on crisp fall nights. We loved the quiet mornings, sitting in the living room and looking out at the ocean and watching birds and foxes playing in the yard outside. The private community has expansive lawns with paths to wander the 63 acres; just out the front door was a lovely pond wrapped by trees in full fall color and just behind the back porch was a spacious lawn rolling down to the ocean bluffs and walking path which has amazing views.
The condo’s location was perfect with easy access to Rockport as well as Rockland & Camden, which have quaint downtowns with museums, restaurants, shopping, with easy access to parks, boating, hiking, bicycling, swimming, tennis, etc. We look forward to staying at this property again…just need to decide if it’s for a summer retreat or the perfect Norman Rockwell New England Christmas.
The owners were very accommodating, easy to work with and worked diligently to make sure our every need was met or exceeded. Put this property high on your vacation list!
Your condominium is beautiful and a welcoming place. It is nicely furnished, clean and comfortable for your complete “Home Away”.
The condo is on Penobscot Bay with a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean. Sunrises are simply phenomenal and the moon rises and shines on the waters. Breathtaking! You get million dollar views at reasonable prices.
No matter your interest, there is plenty for you nearby. The rocky coast is home to numerous lighthouses, and small towns. Next door is the Samoset Resort Golf Club. Located ½ way between Kennebunkport and Bar Harbor, it is convenient for many day trips. We went to: Acadia National Park where we saw Cadillac Mountain, walking trails, Thunder Hole, and ecology. Monhegan Island with its artists, art museum, lighthouse, and local island living. Sailed on the Schooner Heron out of Rockport Harbor. Toured the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland.
Bring your camera and walking shoes and have a wonderful experience.
Life is good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Thompson's condo in Eastward on the Ocean. The condo was spotlessly clean, and the property was outstanding. The house was filled with everything necessary for a comfortable stay, including ultra-soft sheets and towels. Everything was there for cooking. (We were told a new kitchen is being installed, even though the other kitchen was just fine.) Waking up to the sunrise over the ocean each morning was breathtaking. There was so much to do in the area, and we were busy every day. We enjoyed touring some of Maine's 60+ lighthouses, going sailing on schooners, kwalking the ocean path on the Eastward property, visiting Monhegan Island and Acadia National Park. The attractions are in close driving proximity. Maine is a photographer's dream! We would definitely return to the Thompson's condo in the future as well as highly recommend to others. They provided excellent customer service and made sure we had everything necessary for a great vacation.
This was the first trip for myself and husband to Maine and we couldn't have selected a better location! We were kept busy with the Maine Food Fest, the Fourth of July festivities and the Atlantic Blues festival in the Rockport area. But this wonderful central Maine location allowed us to travel both North and South from Portland to Acadia comfortably. Each day we were able to return to a quiet respite on the ocean to recharge for another day of exploring. The listing provided an accurate description with well represented photos. The owner was available if needed and followed up with us to provide insight into attractions and restaurants in the area. We shared our time with different friends during our stay, and we all appreciated our accommodations. I would recommend this vacation spot to anyone interested in the Maine coast.
