Car: Recommended

Located in the Historic South End of Rockland, the house is a convenient 15-20 minute walk to town (3-4 minutes by car) and our small town beach at Sandy Beach Park. It's also a 3-4 minute walk to the Snow Marina and park, home of the Sail, Steam and Power Marine Museum and the Coastal Children's Museum, and a real working ship repair yard. The Marina is a Public Boat Launch with the cove on one side and a big green park on the other side for walking the dog or kids, watching the boats, or enjoying a beautiful Maine morning or evening sunset. For the hardy, locals swim off the docks on hot days. It provides us with fresh ocean breezes all day. ..............................

The South End offers easy car access to Maine sites worth visiting several times. Owlshead Lighthouse (10 minutes or so) for great views and, of course, the lighthouse. Lucia Beach at Birch Point State Park (15 minutes) has a beautiful beach for the best ocean swimming in the area, with woods on either side for walks, sunning on the surrounding rock ledges (nice and flat). Port Clyde (20 minutes or so) for fishing and rental of kayaks or seeing it's lighthouse, and Thomaston (10 minutes), a sweet quaint little Maine town. .......................

On the other side of town you are heading north to Rockport and Camden, 20 minutes away by car, for some of the best shopping and antiquing, or keep going north as far as you want for a truly lovely scenic drive. ...............................................

Rockland itself is a fun and activity filled destination. The town has free parking, with easy walking to numerous art galleries, the Farnsworth Museum, Wyeth Center Museum, Lighthouse Museum, and lots of fun small shops. It has cafes with internet, a great bakery, the Strand Theatre with live entertainment and off-beat movies, great pubs and some good restaurants. It has an active in-town harbor area, and slightly outside of downtown is the walkable mile-long Rockland Lighthouse Breakwater. It also provides access to ferries to the Islands and booking sailing or ocean fishing day trips.......

Walk from your apartment to any of the following festivals held in Rockland's Harbor Park: North Atlantic Blues Festival in July, the annual Lobster Festival the first week of August and the Maine Boats and Harbor Show in mid-August. The town to Thomaston has an old fashion 4th of July celebration with a parade, barbaque and booths (10 minute drive), or visit the Maine Wild Blueberry Festival in August at the Union Common Ground Fair (45 minute drive). For more events check on-line...............................................

It's easy to while away a morning or afternoon in Rockland downtown in between these more adventurous activities, and it always has an ocean breeze even on those surprisingly hot Maine summer days.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Welcome! I'd like to invite you to stay with me and my small terrier dog at our wonderful 110 year old house. After 45 years working in the same industry (travel) and 30 years with the same loving partner, I suddenly found myself retired and alone a few years ago. I decided I wanted to settle myself and my loyal little dog in Maine, where I had spent many lovely weekends and vacations over the 30 years. Looking at realty on-line, I kept being drawn to this much too big, much too run down old house in Rockland (one of my favorite towns). It just kept calling me. After some investigation I found out it was built over 110 years ago in 1905, was solid but needed a lot of TLC. After a two year top to bottom renovation, both the house and I are happier and younger. I finally had the time to put in a new garden, so now she's a bright, happy house inside and out. Three years ago I decided to do some summer rentals and I was surprised and delighted to find how much I enjoyed sharing my lovely old house. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do if you come to stay.

Why the Owner Chose Rockland, ME, USA:
We think we offer the best of both worlds- we are out of the traffic and bustle of downtown Rockland in the summer, combined with the convenience of being only 3-4 minutes by car or, better yet, 15-20 minutes on foot from the excitement of Rockland's activities. The house is roomy, friendly and comfortable, welcoming you back after a busy day exploring our beautiful coastal Maine.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Snow Marina is so conveniently near that this is a great place to stay if you have children who need a place to run free, fly a kite or just watch the boats while you sit on a bench before or after a busy day and meditate on the beauty of the cove. We are conveniently located to start your day trips to explore the area and only a 15 minute drive to Birch Point State Park, which has one of the best swimming and hiking beach area in this area, Lucia Beach. There are four lighthouses and miles of coastal scenery to enjoy. In short, we have everything you need to have a perfect vacation in beautiful coastal Maine.
