Rockland is an exciting small city full of restaurants, pubs, wine bars, art galleries, renowned museums, and shops of all descriptions, at the same time retaining its historical ambiance. A concert hall and a restored 1920's movie theater complete the downtown.
The grand natural harbor, with its exceptional breakwater and lighthouse, is dotted with pleasure yachts and sailboats and the largest windjammer fleet in the world. Yet Rockland still has a working harbor with a commerical fishing and lobster boat fleet. A State Ferry operates daily to the off-shore islands. Rockland is called “The Lobster Capital Of the World”, and 'The Gateway to Penobscot Bay.'
Walk out on the breakwater (⅞ mile) to the lighthouse at the end – great views over the harbor and out over the ocean to the outlying islands. Or take a walk on the harbor boardwalk and explore the activity in a real working harbor.
There are two excellent golf courses nearby – Rockland Public course and Samoset.
As well as the famous Lobster festival there are many others during the year – a Boat Show, Blues Festival, Jazz festival to name a few. And several regional fairs – Common Ground Fair, Union Fair and Windsor Fair being among the most popular.
There are working vineyards, farms and farmers markets to visit and many cultural and artisanal activities to see or take part in.
There’s no place like Penobscot Bay for walking and exploring, fishing, sailing, kayaking, hiking and rock climbing. And in the evenings in Rockland, rejoin society, and eat out, go to a concert or a film.
Rockland has something to offer everybody, young and old. Come and stay at the Zadoc F Brewster House and see for yourself!

Why Catherine Shaer or George Whisstock chose Rockland
Although it was in rather a sad state, we fell in love with the house at first sight, and couldn't resist the lure of restoring this gracious historic old sea-captain's house to it's earlier glory.
