Great Visit!

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of room for three couples (longtime friends) to spend a week together at the Irish Rose. The view of the cove was picturesque and we never tired of admiring it. The house was clean, nicely decorated, and just minutes away from both Rockland and Camden. The only drawback was the tight space in the bathroom showers. We had a great time here and would be happy to return.

First visit to Maine

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7-myself and my husband, my two adult sons (30 and 27), one son's girlfriend, my brother and a long-time family freind. This was the first trip to Maine for us. This house is as advertised-stunning view from the back porch, and very comfortable in the house. The kitchen had everything we needed, but we rarely used it, as we went to many of the excellent restaurants nearby. The location of the house makes it very easy to reach many of locations in Maine-we took day trips to Bangor, Portland, Bar Harbor, Camden and Boothbay-all were easily reached, and the traffic was not an issue-I had expected long back-ups on route 1, but we never had that problem. We had also booked our stay during the Rockland Lobster festival, which we also enjoyed. The house has several areas that people can hang-out in-a large living room, an enclosed back porch area, and an open front porch and back porch. We also made use of the fire pit one night to make s'mores. So, to sum it all up- Great house, great location and great view!

House was clean and had plenty of room for the whole family.

We enjoyed exploring the cove during low tide and seeing all the infant lobsters swimming around when the tide was coming back in.

Charming comfortable home on a quiet cove

Three women stayed in this beautifully kept 5 bedroom home. It is well equipped and has a stunning view with an accessible beach. Alex is a most gracious and available host.
