You couldn't ask for a more convenient location in Rockland! Located on Main Street surrounded by mature pine and cedar trees, this home is only a 15-minute drive from Owls Head State Park that features an operational lighthouse with seasonal tours and gift shop.

Take a 5-minute drive to downtown where the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, The Maine Lighthouse Museum, and the Mississippi Blues Trail eagerly await to entertain you. Eat with the locals along Main Street at venues such as the Rock City Cafe, Rustica, or Park Street Grille.

  • Rockland Visit


    The Rockland home was spotless and we were welcomed with a note and flowers from the host and hostess. The refrigerator was stocked with drinks that the we had requested. The host was available to answer any questions and provided us with information about restaurants and places to visit. The house is located within walking distance to the harbor and town. I highly recomend a vist to Rockland and this welcoming home.

  • Great location but busy street noise


    Although the location of this home was ideal to downtown, wharf, and restaurants, it’s in a very busy street which is noticeable when in the home. We tried to sleep with the windows open but the traffic was too loud so we had to resort to putting on the AC which was not ideal. The large trees that shield the front of the house also don’t allow light in the front of the house causing it to be dark and uninviting.I think the owners should be upfront in the description of the home.With that said, the home was comfortable and the few requests that we had during our stay were responded to quickly.Great places to bike and walk to restaurants, downtown, wharf and museums.

    Manager's Response:

    Sue, we want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    -We're sorry to hear about your level of discomfort during your stay. It is worth mentioning that we are located by one of the town's main roads. Unfortunately, it may be best to keep windows closed during late hours so that it does not disturb you when trying to sleep.
    -We're glad to hear that you took advantage of the great location of the property. We hope you were able to enjoy your stay.
    Thank you for your insight, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

  • A Special Retreat in Rockland


    We enjoyed staying in this home - updated and decorated lovely, fairly close to downtown Rockland, and a great place to stage our adventures in the area. Extremely clean and thoughtfully stocked - it's a great getaway with a beautiful deck for some chilling out time. The owners were very responsive to our needs. While they weren't an issue for us, the stairs to the second floor are steep and could be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. Also, while we were there, the Wifi signal was next to nothing, so if you truly need a strong signal for work purposes (I know, you're supposed to be on vacation) - make sure you won't be disappointed with this. Otherwise, it's a special little home and a wonderful place to enjoy all that Rockland has to offer. Thanks, Jimmy & Xiao!
