Property description

Seasonal rental with breathtaking views of Penobscot Bay and Samoset Resort's 18-hole Championship Golf Course, this becomes an ideal vacation rental to explore mid-coast Maine while relaxing and spending time with family and friends. Located in the charming Samoset Village, adjacent to the Samoset Resort, this beautiful open concept condominium offers 1,800 sq. ft. of living space. The 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath semi-detached end-unit offers views of the Samoset Resort’s “Pebble Beach of the East”, Penobscot Bay, the surrounding islands, and Owls Head Lighthouse. It's an ideal location, taking less than 5 minutes to drive to downtown Rockland, and 10 minutes to drive to the heart of Camden, Maine.

We've recently undertaken a complete renovation and remodel of our Samoset Village home; paying attention to all the details. Custom-built kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities, new appliances, white oak floors, new lush carpeting, and a full-size front loading washer and dryer. We also have new plumbing and fixtures, improved insulation, and an upgraded heating and instant hot water system for added comfort.

The chef's kitchen comes fully equipped from pots and pans to the garlic press and microplane. In addition to the 10 cup coffee maker, it also features an espresso machine and french press.

The back porch off the living room and master bedroom en-suite offers a comfortable outdoor living area with 2 rocking chairs, an adirondack chair, and double glider advantage to sit with friends enjoying afternoon cocktails while taking in the wonderful views of Penobscot Bay, the Samoset Resort Golf Course, and the well-manicured lawns and gardens.

Master Bedroom en-suite has lovely views of the landscaped courtyard. The new king bed is adorned with high-end Legacy Linens with Kassatex 100% egyptian cotton sheets. The master en-suite bath features a separate double vanity from the walk-in shower and wc.

The second floor has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other a trundle. The two bedrooms share the upstairs bath, which has been completely remodeled with a custom-built double vanity, offers a shower-bath combination, and 'travertine' tile.

The townhouse has a 1 car garage and private driveway. Additional parking is available in designated lot areas throughout the Samoset Village.

Samoset Village has a private pool that is open only to village residents and guests from mid-June to Labor Day.

Housekeeping Services: a mid-week tidy service is included in the weekly rental rate. Any rentals that are 2 weeks or more include twice weekly housekeeping services with weekly linen change.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We live in North Florida and enjoy spending our summers and holidays in Maine with our family. The condo is managed by our daughter, Kristen, who loved Maine so much, she relocated to Rockport in 2001, and started her own family.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, ME, USA:
In 1996, we traveled to the Samoset Resort for a family vacation and rented the condo next door. At this time, Samoset Village was part of the Samoset Resort and we had access and use of all the resort's amenities. Our family had such an amazing time enjoying the many wonders of Midcoast Maine... sailing Penobscot Bay, the delicious food, hiking Maiden's Cliff, and the resort atmosphere that while we here vacationing, the unit we now own had been placed on the market. Our family condo was purchased as a surprise anniversary present for my mother. We have enjoyed many family vacations, holidays, and even a very special Samoset Resort wedding at this condo. We hope you are able to enjoy it as much as we have.
