Overview

About the property

Walk to everything in the quaint, bustling village of art and music.

Built in 1850, remodeled in 1989 for a comfortable lifestyle, all on one floor! Right across the street from Rockport Opera house, with a sunny southern exposure and a wrap around porch. Walk easily to 18 Central and the Nina June Cafe in the same block. This would be a great house to rent while taking a class at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship or the Maine Media Workshop. Perfect too for attending the Bay Chamber concerts right across the street in the Opera House or at Union Hall . The house has a number of comfy chairs for sitting and reading, and a desk situated next to a window overlooking the harbor for writing. It is a restful house, but there are plenty of adventures to be had in the surrounding Camden hills or inland- day sails on a schooner, hiking, kayaking.

Our two bedrooms each open onto the kitchen/dining area, and each has a full bathroom. Each one has an air conditioner, although it is rarely needed. How many times we visited here in the summer, leaving a hot steamy Boston, and found Rockport chilled by a fog bank. Mom would say, 'Always bring a sweater when you come to Maine!'

This house is perfect for two couples on a getaway weekend, or as a home base during a longer visit to New England.

This is a beautiful spot for walking. One block in one direction is the working harbor, with windjammers and lobsterboats in action. Bring your kayaks! The memorial to Andre the seal is there, as well as the Rockport lime kiln exhibit. Graffam’s fish market and picnic area make a fun walk at lunch time. In another direction is the quiet road along Beauchamps point, leading past waterfront estates, Children's Chapel and the famous Belted Galloway cows at Aldermere farm.

Camden and all its lovely shops is a 5 minute drive, and will take the better part of the day to explore. The Atlantic climbing School is waiting to take you rock climbing on Mount Megunticook and environs. Or just hike Mount Battie, the muse for Edna St Vincent Millay, on your own. You can even drive up Mt Battie and climb the stone tower for a sweeping view of Penobscott Bay.

In August, it's blueberry time, and the Union Fair is in full swing with old fashioned ox pulling, pie eating contest, and prancing ponies. Autumn brings more lovely walks through the foliage, apple picking in Hope, or across Beech Hill, to see the low bush blueberry bushes all burnished red.

Attend one of the many Bay Chamber concerts right across the street.
