Property description

Our secluded cottage faces south overlooking the bay, islands, and working lobster boats. The front deck is ideal for lunching, sunning, and watching nature at play and joins a grassed lawn perfect for games. A hammock under the pines is for quiet time. Stay cozy on a cool evening with a small gas stove.

A short drive will take you to all the festivals Rockland has each summer weekends as well as the Camden/Rockport harbors, home to the schooner fleet. A nautical museum, general store/cafe, post office, library and great fishing are within walking distance. Launch your kayak and explore the shoreline.
