A retreat

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home in a secluded place. Quiet, peaceful and a needed retreat from the difficult time we have just gone through. The home has everything you will need for a wonderful stay. A fully stocked kitchen, laundry materials, nice linens, smart TV's, wifi, comfortable seating for contemplating the magnificent view. The coup de grace for my companions and I was having a garage to pull into as we stayed during a snow storm. Driveway was promptly plowed. Tim picked up his phone right away when we called with a teensy tiny infinitesimal issue.

A bald eagle flies by almost daily, deer visit, loons swim by along with other sea birds...and this in February. Rockland and Camden both a short drive, offer galleries, scenic views, shopping and sophisticated dining and food options. Megunticook Market supplied our catering but we popped into the nearby Market Basket and see they also have wonderful offerings. The natural food store 2 minutes from the home has a stash of the super dark maple syrup almost unheard of anymore (ask for it- it's in the refrigerator). Rockland has the Farnsworth Museum for Andrew Wyeth watercolors and the home featured in so many of his painting (think Christina) is a nearby museum open in the summer. If you are an art lover, this museum should not be missed, the curator has done a wonderful job representing many styles.

I recommend this home without reservation and will return again.

What a Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love staying at this property. We come once or twice a year to just relax and unwind. The property is beautiful, the interior is outstanding with soft blue carpeting that blends with the ocean background. The large windows on the east side give full view of the water, and whether it is sunny or rainy, the view is always outstanding! The kitchen is situated so that the cook can take advantage of the view while preparing meals, and waking up in the master bedroom each morning offers sunrises that are beyond belief. Everything inside and outside the house is convenient. And the visitor can choose to either stay home or go to the many outstanding eateries in the area. Shopping is also an option as there is a large variety of shops and products to take advantage of. I can't think of one single down side to staying at this home. we love it!

Windows with a view - GALORE

  • 5 of 5

Incredible location! Right off the coast road but then completely secluded. And no kidding about the windows... the view from the (huge) living room, kitchen and master bedroom are truly fantastic. Would highly recommend this place for group of friends or families with kids. (Minor) suggestion: could add a couple mid-sized cooking pots (most are either too small or extra large for crabs/lobsters), and a few ladles. They may already be there but couldn't find those. Again, minor stuff... this place is highly recommended... we almost didn't leave each morning thanks to the view. Got the Fall colors and even the full 'supermoonrise' from the deck, which was icing!

Stunning waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home, we were absolutely speechless when we drove down that winding dirt road to find that gem! As soon as you walk through the front door you are bathed in natural sunlight and dazzled by the stunning ocean views. The house is so spacious that my 6 year old and 3 year old and the dog were so excited and were doing laps! We had 11 people for dinner on Friday night and the dining room accommodated us all and there were plenty of dishes, silverware and glassware. The kitchen has everything you need (I brought trash bags, zip locks, dish soap, tin foil, salt, pepper, spices, Pam, and they were already there!). The bathrooms are dated but they are in immaculate condition and fully outfitted with liquid hand soap, toilet paper, and lots of towels. Each bedroom had high quality linens, pillows and mattresses and individual temperature controls (as the last few days were chilly outside). There is a huge dry basement which has the ping pong room, a full bath and the sauna in a finished end. The basement would be perfect for kids to play in on rainy days if they had to run about.

The owner was extremely helpful with answering questions and quick to respond.

I cannot say enough good things, our family highly recommends this home! We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Spectacular views at "Windows on the Ocean"

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our choice of homes to rent for our Maine vacation. The views are beautiful and so interesting with the changes of the weather. Our group of three couples had more than enough space. As in other reviews the decor is somewhat dated and a few things could be repaired, but overall we enjoyed our stay. The location was very good as we traveled north and south along the coast and also inland.

Cannot say enough about the spectacular view of Penobscot Bay one has from the large picture windows and new deck of this home. And what a wonderful treat to wake up each morning to the Rockport Lighthouse off in the distance! When you drive down to this home, you feel as if you are in a secluded forested area of Maine that is right on the Atlantic Ocean. This home is located in the central area of the Maine coastline (right outside Camden), allowing guests to visit villages both north and south within easy driving distances. The owner of this home is exceptionally responsive, and answers inquiries usually within a few minutes. The interior of the home is spacious with an open floor plan and enjoys a "70's retro décor," but important areas of the home have been updated, and it is my understanding he plans to continue the updates. However, when you have such a lovely view and accessibility to so many towns and attractions along the Maine coast, the size of the interior and number of baths are what is important. The kitchen is well supplied and allows for all types of cooking. We would definitely want to secure this home again for our next trip to Maine!
