About dennis & carol
We live in Rhode Island and have been here all our lives. Rockland Maine has been a favorite place for us for quite some time.
dennis & carol purchased this House in 1998
Why dennis & carol chose Rockland
We both grew up in Rhode Island but my wife's aunt lived in Rockland. My wife visited her aunt, uncle and cousins in Rockland annualy-usually lobster festival week - and fell in love with this small seaside town. When we met in the 80's, I joined her on her visits to Rockland. We found this home on our way to visit the Samoset Resort and the Rockland breakwater and purchased it in 1998.
What makes this House unique
There is a great view of the harbor from our home. There is a small sitting room off the master bedroom with a large picture window where you can relax with a coffee, a good book or your ipod and truely relax. You can also go to the large deck above the garage and capture the ocean breeze and sunshine along with a view of the harbor.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Property was in great condition. Couldn’t use the driveway for a couple of days due to a new one being installed. Which was not a problem considering the interments the owners are making to make the stay just that much better. Location is perfect. I oils definitely go back if I am in the area.
Great location right off coastal highway 1, perfect beginning and ending for our daily activities.
Had plenty of room for 4 adults. Kitchen had everything and more for us to prepare meals. Beds were very comfortable and slept soundly, very quite area. View out front of home is exactly as pictured. Didn’t expect the laundry to be in basement though and having to reach by outside entrance.
As advertised. Clean,comfy. Nice proximity to lighthouse harbor break and Rockland.
A cute home with some special extras, including location near Breakwater Light
This cute 3-bedroom, 1 bath home comes with some extras worth noting: a small enclosed sun room off the master bedroom is ideal for morning coffee or just staring at the Penobscot Bay across the way. We also took advantage of the large dining room table, which easily seats six, and we had several friends over for dinner. The kitchen comes fully equipped and we found everything we needed.
We hoped to return next year with friends, but sharing a bathroom with four mature adults just didn’t seem feasible. And, two double beds and a twin might also be a problem.
While the house does have a washer and drier in the basement, the outside entrance was too steep for us, especially while carrying a load of clothes.
The windows and fans offered nice breezes during unseasonably warm weather for the first week in September. The back deck and the elevated deck were also nice additions, but fog and heat kept us inside when we were “home.” Really though, we weren’t “home” all that much. I mean, after all, we were in Maine!

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We've sometimes had up to six adults rent the home and somehow they seem to manage their bathroom routine. Which always surprises us. We are happy you had an enjoyable stay and got to enjoy the uniqueness of our home and the State of Maine. Dennis & Carol
Beautiful little spot!
The home was perfect for our needs. I stayed with a few colleagues for a workshop. The home is very cozy, extremely clean (thank you Dennis!), and exactly as advertised. Dennis and Carrol we're great and responsive when my colleague arrived before me and had trouble getting in. I'll rent this place again next time I come.
Morgan thank you for your review. We want to make every stay at our home enjoyable and comfortable. We are pleased to know everything worked out for you and your colleagues. We look forward to your return.
Totally equipped and charming
Everything we needed was available in the kitchen and the owner was extremely helpful and communicated well. the home is just down the road from the Rockland Breakwater lighthouse and an easy drive into the Farnsworth Museum. We really enjoyed the location overall but it is separated from the bay by a road and a neighbors large yard. The views are very pretty but as stated in the property description , it is not directly on the water. Having a washer and dryer available in the basement was great.
If you want to relax and just hang out and enjoy the ocean breeze, beautiful sunsets, dining by the ocean, a backyard barbecue or lobster & clam boil this is the place to do it. Or you can ferry to the islands, play golf, tennis, sail, hike, bike, fish, swim, or go to the cinema. Whatever your desire - this is the place for you and your family.
