Welcome to Rockland and Lamorna Cottage!

This 1880s home has been lovingly restored. The cottage offers a true getaway on a quiet South End street. It's a short walk to all Rockland has to offer - festivals, shopping, world-class museums, the water-front, several restaurants and the small public beach.

On the first floor, there is a Living Room with a sectional couch and chairs, a TV with internet hook-up and DVD player with an assortment of movies. There is also a large dining room with seating for 6, a gourmet fully-equipped kitchen with island, a 3/4 Bath (shower) and a laundry closet with full-size washer and dryer.

On the second floor, there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen bed and a twin. Both rooms have side tables, bureaus, table lamps and ceiling fans. There is also a full bath off the second floor hall with a deep soaking tub.

Off the kitchen is a deck with outdoor seating, a picnic table, gas grill and a small garden. The front yard is a sunny place to hang out on the Adirondack chairs.

The number of guests is limited to 4 plus up to 2 children (there is a pull-out bed in the Dining Room and a large couch in the Living Room). There are hardwood floors throughout.

There is free internet available and we are pet friendly. We charge $25 for each additional guest over 4 to cover linens and cleaning.

Availability June 1st-October 15th. See calendar. We can't wait to see you!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cute house. Cute town. Restful and easy stay. We loved this little house. It was clean and the owners were so nice and accommodating. It is so close to downtown shops, restaurants and a great local coffee shop. We loved our stay and did not want to leave.

Good first impressions of attractive cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this place and enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was particularly good, everything was very clean and the cottage is located in a quiet street just a short walk from the centre of Rockland. But after 3 nights there we realised that a few things needed attention. The bed in the 2nd room was about to collapse and we had to sort that out. The plug in the downstairs bathroom sink was faulty and couldn't be unplugged without getting underneath and a power point for a bedside light didn't work in the 2nd bedroom. We weren't impressed by the neighbour's junk being deposited outside the kitchen window either but that's probably beyond Juli's control. And even after reading the instructions for the TV we couldn't access it. Maybe, after staying in many, many vacation rentals, we're just getting too picky.

We used the Rock City Cafe a couple of times following Juli's recommendation and we weren't disappointed. Their cakes were delicious and the coffee wasn't bad either.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Rockland for an en plein air painting workshop (my husband is the painter). I spent the day exploring Rockland and surrounding areas. This house is so lovely and comfortable. It has everything you need. In fact, I am looking forward to renting it again next year! A word of advice: the restaurants are very busy in August. If you want to dine at Primo, 3 Crow, Cafe Miranda (highly recommend all three) or any of the better places, try to make a reservation in advance. It will save you hours of waiting. Also, the Farnsworth Museum is free on Wednesdays. It's definitely worth seeing. We also had a nice hike at Camden State Park. We hike to the top of Mt. Battie for a sweeping view of the bay--do wear hiking shoes and be prepared for a bit of rock scrambling on the way down.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Rockland and traveling coastal Maine. The house was exactly as nice as pictured, and the whole trip went as well as we hoped. Everything was sent to us promptly, check in and out was simple. The house is only a short walk to the water and you pass a nice local coffee shop that's worth the stop.

Great for a quite getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to take in the sites around Maine this is a great location. Loved this quaint cottage and all the comforts of home it had to offer. Very clean and nicely decorated. The owner was a joy to work with. The only complaint my sister had was the pull out couch wasn't very comfortable but Juli (the owner) was sure to make us aware of that when we discussed the number of guests in our group. Thanks again for letting us stay in your home. 😊

Fabulous vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3-year-old for a week in August and it was wonderful! Beautiful, modern, clean home in a friendly neighborhood and close to everything. A short walk to downtown Rockland with restaurants, coffee, ice cream, shopping, museums, and the water of course. It was great to be able to both eat out and cook at home (with fresh fish from a great local market). Lots of fun activities in the summer in this area -- boat rides, local beaches (we recommend checking out Birch Point State Park), walks/ hiking in Camden Hills State Park, museums (Farnsworth and Owl's Head Transportation Museum) on a rainy day. We brought our bikes and took short and long bike rides. The house is in a great location and has everything you need! The owners were very responsive before and after our stay (we didn't have any issues so no reason to contact them during our stay). We will be back!
