About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms In Restored 1874 Victorian Manor House

Our HOA requires a 30 night minimum stay. Our home is in a development called "Eastward on the Ocean", which is the most beautiful neighborhood on the Maine Coast. If you are looking for a perfect getaway, this is it! Our location in Rockport, Maine is where the mountains meet the sea. The views are incredible! You get the best of both worlds for beauty and recreation. This fully restored 1880 Victorian mansion is truly exquisite. There are 4 condos in the mansion. Our unit is a completely updated, well-appointed 2 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront condo overlooking scenic Penobscot Bay sleeps 6 guests- 4 in bedrooms and 2 on the sleeper sofa in the living room. This well-maintained condo sits on 63 acres with 2500 feet along the ocean. The property has expansive lawns, a walking path along the ocean, bike paths, tennis court, and swimming pool. Next door is the Samoset Golf Resort where you can enjoy ocean scenery while golfing. Acadia National Park and Monhegan Island are easy day trips. Visit scenic Rockport Harbor, where you can see the Andre the Seal statue, walk through the park, and enjoy the ocean views. We are a short drive to Camden Harbor. Enjoy walking around the harbor area, visiting the shops, dining at great restaurants, and perhaps taking a Windjammer cruise. Enjoy skiing at Camden Snow Bowl which is only 8 miles away. Drive up Mt. Battie and soak in the breathtaking ocean views. Imagine turning off US 1 and driving down the long driveway and suddenly in the distance you see a grand manor house situated on green, expansive lawns right next to the ocean. There is easy access to our unit with parking right outside the front door. Walking in the door, you can't help but be taken aback by the ocean view outside the living room and kitchen windows. You can actually see lobster boats and sailboats pass by from our deck. Downstairs is the living area, dining area, and kitchen. The new kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, is equipped with everything you need for cooking....including a lobster pot that you can use to cook the lobster you just purchased off the boat! The upstairs has a master bedroom with a brand new all marble ensuite master bathroom. The guest room has its own bathroom. There is a sleeper sofa that sleeps 2 in the living room. From the two bedrooms, you have a breathtaking view of Penobscot Bay. What a great way to wake up every morning! Both bathrooms overlook a beautiful little pond on the west side of the building. We furnish towels, linens, and blankets. There is a washer/dryer upstairs. Wifi is included. There are 2 adult size bicycles and 2 helmets and tennis rackets available for you to enjoy. We have large cooler and small cooler for you to use for picnics. You have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The condo is extremely well-maintained with many upgrades.

This oceanfront manor house condo is truly an elegant, architectural treasure that you won't find any place else. Come enjoy, relax, and recharge at the the place where the mountains meet the sea.

The HOA requires a minimum stay of 30 days. No smoking and no pets please.

Wish we lived there!

  • 5 of 5

We could hardly believe our good fortune in finding the Thompson's vacation property. This beautiful, immaculate place with postcard views is exactly as represented in the photographs and the perfect location to enjoy peace and quiet or as a base to explore all that is good about Maine! We loved spending the whole month of August there and the Thompson's could not have been nicer or more helpful and easy to deal with. Here's just a sampling of things we did: the world famous Rockland Lobster Festival, lunch and sunset schooner cruises out of Camden and Rockport harbors, road trip to Acadia National Park, picnics on top of Mt. Battie, walking the breakwater, watching the sailboats go by on the deck, awesome farmers markets, sampling every blueberry pie in the area, more lobster, organ concerts, shopping, Children's Chapel in the woods, more lobster, late night milkshakes at Dairy Dream, watching the fog roll in, going to see the "Oreo" cows, finding iconic Maine lighthouses, museums, exploring small villages inland, walking along the shoreline, and so much more. There are so many things we didn't even get to do. We might have watched TV for 2 hours total in a month! The condo is very comfortable and updated. Literally everything you might need is provided. There is a lovely swimming pool and tennis courts as well. Grocery and other necessary shopping is 5 minutes away. Eastward on the Ocean is a gorgeous, historic neighborhood. We made lots of friends and liked it so much we are returning for a longer period next year. Thanks for the memories and here's hoping the weather will be as perfect again for us!

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!!!

  • 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.

About Thomas & Roberta Thompson

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

Why Thomas & Roberta Thompson chose Glen Cove

The oceanfront condo is a perfect spot for relaxation and recreation.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rental of #43 Eastward, Rockport Maine

This summer I rented #43 Eastward in Rockport, Maine for six weeks from Roberta Thompson. While I was very familiar with the area I did not know this condo. I was completely satisfied in every way.

The interior has been completely re-done. Very attractive décor, comfortable furnishings, and all oriented toward a hundred and eighty degree view of the spectacular Penobscot Bay. As someone who enjoys cooking, even on holiday, I was especially impressed with the very well equipped kitchen. Ample cutlery, dishes and glasses, a selection on pots and pans (for corn and lobster this is essential), and sharp knives!

I have rented through VRBO and AirBnB on a half dozen occasions over the past six years, however, this was the first time I had rented in Maine and it was the best. The Thompsons were thorough and professional in all the arrangements both before and at the conclusions of my rental. I hope to return.
