Rockport cottage description

Famous artists and photographers have lived here, like Kosti Ruohomaa in the 1950 s. This beautiful studio is located on the upper floor of the Barn at the Old Community House in Rockport, one of the few original homes left in the Rockport Village. Only a 5-7 min walk to the Village and the Rockport Harbor Bridge filmed in the movies ' A Seal called Andre', or 'Man without a Face'. Maine Media Workshops, The Opera House and the Bay Chamber Concerts are around the corner. A 10 min ride to The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, to Camden and the Camden Hills National Park. A great 10 min walk to the Curtis Children's Chapel where many couples get married every summer. 15 min ride to Rockland , to the Samoset Resort and to the ferries for all Maine Islands and Nova Scotia. 2 1/2 hrs ride to Acadia National Park and to Bar Harbor.
Beautiful 4 tier granite dock,large float and mooring available on the property w direct harbor access. These are optional and negotiated separately.
The Studio has a special feel to it. Very unique, surrounded by tall pine trees and blue sky, with superb harbor views. 400 sq feet of floor space, covered with white berber carpets and original pine boards from 1880.A large balcony overlooking the harbor. Lots of natural light coming through the large windows and italian veranda style doors, skylights, the combination of white walls-pine boards ceiling-rustic furniture -nice linens give this space the feeling of a chalet/loft in Maine country style. The room is equipped with everything one needs for a comfortable, romantic, restful vacation. The view is amazing. One can see the activities of the harbor, the jumps of the seals,the flying of the seagulls or the beauty of the garden and lawn surrounded by majestic pines and oaks. The sunsets are spectacular, the colors are unforgetable... just the place to be, to write, relax, escape from it all. Access stairs to the Studio/balcony are on the side of the house, about 16 steps with handrail and rest area.

                  Our ties with the local artists' community date from over 50 yrs ago.We like to maintain these relationships and the memories with the house.
