              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Winding Way Bed and Breakfast is in Rockland, Maine. Four years ago Winding Way Watercolors Art Gallery opened in north Rockland. For the last year, we have been looking for a location in the arts and downtown section of town where we could have our art gallery and a bed and breakfast. During the winter of 2012 we purchased the house. . We have traveled a lot in the United States, east and west, as we lived in Denver for many years before moving back to the east coast 11 years ago. We also have traveled in The Caribbean, Europe and South Africa. We love to stay in bed and breakfasts and small inns. We have tried to take the best ideas from all of those places and add them to Winding Way Bed and Breakfast. We hope you will agree.

              Why the Owner Chose Rockland:
              The house was built in 1855. It is one block off of Main street, around the corner from the Farnsworth Museum and across the Street from the Wyeth Center. During the summer downtown Rockland hosts many festivals including The Lobster Festival where 20,000 pounds of lobster is served in four days. Park your car at the house and walk to all of the festivals. Rockland Harbor, the art galleries, shopping, bike rentals and all of the wonderful restaurants- most of which serve Lobster. The house has been recently renovated but the beautiful period details remain intact. We have the watercolor gallery on the first floor and the bed and breakfast on the second floor.We are a very easy 10 minute walk to the boardwalk that circles Rockland Harbor. There are many restaurants within walking distance from the house and our sitting room has menus to browse. We can also tell you about our favorites. We live ten minutes from the house and are in the gallery and house daily to answer your questions about all of the adventures you can have while on the midcoast of Maine. Rockland is a wonderful area for bicycling and as avid cyclists we know all of the best routes. We will provide you with maps and make sure you get a bike if you do not bring your own. To see all of the things that are going on in MIdcoast Maine, visit The Penobscot Chamber of Commerce's website at www.therealmaine.com We have two sunny rooms with queen beds and each has it's own ensuite bathroom with shower. Each room has comfortable chairs and footstools to relax after day of exploring lighthouses, beaches, islands, shops, art galleries ,and eating lobster whenever you can ! There are guest sitting areas on the second floor, on the sunny enclosed front porch ,and outside near the small gardens. We are open year round. Of course, Fall in New England is gorgeous and the look of our small Maine villages in winter has been described as like a 'Courier and Ives' painting.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
              Walking distance to town; private parking; continental plus breakfast daily; Neighbor to The Farnsworth Museum which is home to the famous paintings of the Wyeths ( N.C., Andrew and Jamie ); fenced side patio; sunroom with swing; private guest sitting room with games, puzzles,book and tourist information;bike rental and owners who know all the best routes; art gallery on site; gift shop with prints,notecards and art supplies for the watercolorist including the popular 'Watercolor Lessons in a Bag; free WIFI; microwave, coffee maker, convection oven, refrigerator; ice cream and afternoon beverages.
