Photos and Description of the Rockland vacation cottage rental

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This is the best neighborhood in town! Walk along the oceanfront boardwalk to downtown restaurants, movie theater, shopping, Farnsworth Museum and galleries, bars and festivals. You can't get a better location for the Lobster and Atlantic Blues Festival. Friendly neighborhood, great lighthouse views.

Conveniently located in the Historic South End of Rockland, the Pacific House located 1/2 block from ocean (you can see the lighthouse) is steps from the Rockland beach and harbor, and a short walk to downtown and restaurants. The Victorian Farmhouse built in 1860 has pine floors throughout, the kitchen has a tile bar, bar stools and all amenities. The dining room seats 6 comfortably. Plush living room is ideal for reading or watching movies, with flat screen, internet and Netflix provided. Bedrooms sleep 6 - with brand new queen Eurotop beds in master and second bed, and two twin beds in the third room. Huge master bedroom with very large walk-in closet includes all linens. There is a tile bath with vanity, tub and shower, as well as a laundry facility with washer and dryer in large pantry off the kitchen. The mud room sliding glass doors open to a beautiful wooden deck and big, picket fenced back yard with grill and outdoor table.

Throw your favorite steak on the barbeque or boil up a pot of lobsters in this home away from home. It won't take you long to see why CBS This Morning calls Rockland one of the coolest small towns in America.

A jumping-off point for ferries bound for the mid-coast islands, the harbor town of Rockland rocks the mainland in its own right. From its mid-summer Lobster Festival to the Farnsworth Art Museum, from the North Atlantic Blues Festival to windjamming, the fishing, island-hopping and culture provide as much of a draw to this region as the great outdoors.

Start your mornings off right with a stroll down to local roaster Rock City Roasters or it's sister restaurant Rock City Cafe. Rock City roasts their own coffee so you can enjoy a cup of java and some of the best pastries in town while reading the morning paper. For dinner, try Primo—in a renovated 1880s Victorian home—which plans its menu around what’s in the garden and on the farm, and laces desserts with honey from its own bees, or get your dance on to some of the best blues around at the Time Out Pub.

National Georgraphic named Rockland, Maine one of the Top 100 adventure towns in America. Begin with a Rockland Harbor Kayak Tour, great for seal and puffin sighting.Then venture to the Maine Lighthouse Museum, after soaking up the facts, legends, and lore, put on your walking shoes for the nearly one mile walk across the Rockland Breakwater to the Lighthouse. Hop a ferry from the Rockland terminal to nearby Vinalhaven and North Haven Islands which are are great day trips. Ferries are also the least expensive way to see the coast from the water.

About half of the Maine Windjammer Association fleet is now based in Rockland. Book a windjammer cruise. Best vantage points for viewing and photographing windjammers sailing in and around Rockland Harbor are the Rockland Breakwater and Owls Head Light house.

Rockland could be considered Maine's most art-centric town, thanks to the Farnsworth Museum and Wyeth Center (home to work of three generations of Wyeths - NC, Andrew, and James) as well as and the galaxy of independent galleries that surround it. Take it all in on the monthly First Friday Art Walk. Catch a concert, lecture, performance, or film at the Strand, a beautifully restored 1923 theater downtown.

When it comes to food, Rockland has some of the best restaurants in the Mid-Coast and maybe all of Maine. Start with two James Beard award winners: Melissa Kelly, who owns Primo, a farm to table restaurant on the southern edge of town, (be sure to tour the gardens and animal pens before dining in the restaurant or upstairs lounges), and Waterman’s Beach Lobster, named an American Classic. Stroll down Main Street, and the possibilities include the region’s best Japanese, Suzuki’s Sushi Bar; best wine & tapas, In Good Company, or a for more eclectic menu try Cafe Miranda. Or head down to the harbor's edge to Conte's Italian/Seafood - as seen on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations - this meal will be an adventure in itself! Indulge in breakfast at Home Kitchen Cafe, The Brown Bag, or Brass Compass. For a local brew and fresh fried haddock sandwich, head to the Waterworks on Lindsay St.

If you're looking for a great place to base your Maine vacation, look no further than centrally located and eclectic Rockland, Maine on the water!
