Better Than Staying At A Hotel!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Rockport in October, 2016 with another couple. We are from South Florida, so we wanted to see the changing of the leaves, enjoy some beautiful fall Maine weather, do some fun stuff and stay at a beautiful place. WOW….did we ever!!!

The condo suited our needs perfectly. Downstairs was a cozy living room, with a newly remodeled kitchen off to its right. The kitchen was stocked with every gadget and appliance, just like your own home. There was a spacious dining area next to the kitchen.

Upstairs were two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bedding was designer quality. The bathrooms were stocked with plush towels. This was way better than staying at an overpriced hotel. It was like home!!!

I am a stickler for cleanliness, and this condo was immaculate! Beautifully decorated, cozy, warm, inviting, and every single room has a gorgeous view of Penobscot Bay.

There is so much to do in the area, sightseeing, hiking, visiting lighthouses, etc. We even found a place to purchase lobsters dirt cheap, literally right out of the water. It was so much fun, and we will definitely be back.

Thank you to the property owners, Thomas and Roberta, for providing such a nice home away from home. They were the nicest people you would ever want to talk to, and were so accommodating! We are so happy we found this gem! Please stay here….you won’t be disappointed. We recommended this condo to some friends, and they are planning a visit in the spring. Thanks again!!!

Great Fall Get Away!!! Can hardly wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Maine vacay!! First time visitors - the condo was terrific! Even better than described!!!! Very clean and well appointed! We ate breakfast and dinner in the condo as it was so cozy and easy to relax in. Great location and beautiful ocean views!!! Great for experiencing Rockport, Freeport, Acadia Park, and lots of lobster! We recommend early October as the leaves were just starting to turn and the communities hadn't closed for the season!!!!

Peaceful & Lovely

  • 4 of 5

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).

Like having your own private estate by the water!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Maine Sea Coast at it's Finest!

  • 5 of 5

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!

The condominium is beautiful and a welcoming place

  • 5 of 5

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.
