About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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 house is on local maps dated from 1870 when our 157 ft of ocean front had 11 commercial docks, now replaced by our unique large granite sailing dock for small or large boats, cedar walk/float and mooring.The sloped lawn and garden and the shimmering waters of the harbor offer a great view of unforgettable natural beauty. Splendid sunsets, a true paradise for the keen photographer and painter... Great leisure spot.Relaxing vacation.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: We have a deep connection with the house and the position where it is situated. We have old friends in the area, summer residents such as ourselves with ties to the local arts/music scene. We maintain the property ourselves and with the help of few local trusted people. We are personally very involved. We would like to have other people such as friends and visitors enjoy the house as much as we do. We offer comfortable rustic setting with original Maine feel. We are among the few rental properties on the block.Therefore we also try to protect guests' and neighbors' privacy and we maintain a 'do it yourselves' system.. less commercial and more personal.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, ME, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beautiful nature, silence, song of birds, sound of water, great light and colors, great air.
