About the property

Welcome to Rockland and Lamorna Cottage!

This 1880s home has been lovingly restored. The cottage offers a true getaway on a quiet South End street. It's a short walk to all Rockland has to offer - festivals, shopping, world-class museums, the water-front, several restaurants and the small public beach.

On the first floor, there is a Living Room with a sectional couch and chairs, a TV with internet hook-up and DVD player with an assortment of movies. There is also a large dining room with seating for 6, a gourmet fully-equipped kitchen with island, a 3/4 Bath (shower) and a laundry closet with full-size washer and dryer.

On the second floor, there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen bed and a twin. Both rooms have side tables, bureaus, table lamps and ceiling fans. There is also a full bath off the second floor hall with a deep soaking tub.

Off the kitchen is a deck with outdoor seating, a picnic table, gas grill and a small garden. The front yard is a sunny place to hang out on the Adirondack chairs.

The number of guests is limited to 4 plus up to 2 children (there is a pull-out bed in the Dining Room and a large couch in the Living Room). There are hardwood floors throughout.

There is free internet available and we are pet friendly. We charge $25 for each additional guest over 4 to cover linens and cleaning.

Availability June 1st-October 15th. See calendar. We can't wait to see you!

Cutest cottage in Rockland and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Lamorna Cottage, and the house was just as we remembered it. Comfortable and cozy and an easy walk to great restaurants and shops. I recommend Archer's outdoor bar if weather permits. The view is amazing!

Fun on Franklin Street

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a quiet neighborhood. Clean and with ample space. Rooms have a practical layout. When I requested a bath mat that first night and instructions for locking the kitchen door, a woman came right over. I appreciate that. I'd rent this property again.

Wonderful stay at Lamorna Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer staying at Lamorna Cottage. We absolutely love it. The house is adorable, clean, well-appointed, and conveniently located to everything on Main Street. Juli is wonderful and answers her messages very quickly-- she makes the process very easy. Needless to say we have already booked for next year! We are looking forward to another wonderful stay!

Comfortable home, great amenities, great service

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be ideal for our stay. The location was ideal, close to downtown Rockland. The house was well appointed and comfortable in variable weather conditions. Juli and Steven were attentive to our needs. Though remote, they quickly attended to a small issue we encountered and were accommodating of our schedules. We would definitely stay here again.

Cute house. Cute town. Restful and easy stay. We loved this little house. It was clean and the owners were so nice and accommodating. It is so close to downtown shops, restaurants and a great local coffee shop. We loved our stay and did not want to leave.

Good first impressions of attractive cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this place and enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was particularly good, everything was very clean and the cottage is located in a quiet street just a short walk from the centre of Rockland. But after 3 nights there we realised that a few things needed attention. The bed in the 2nd room was about to collapse and we had to sort that out. The plug in the downstairs bathroom sink was faulty and couldn't be unplugged without getting underneath and a power point for a bedside light didn't work in the 2nd bedroom. We weren't impressed by the neighbour's junk being deposited outside the kitchen window either but that's probably beyond Juli's control. And even after reading the instructions for the TV we couldn't access it. Maybe, after staying in many, many vacation rentals, we're just getting too picky.

We used the Rock City Cafe a couple of times following Juli's recommendation and we weren't disappointed. Their cakes were delicious and the coffee wasn't bad either.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write and for choosing our home. We appreciate your feedback especially for the items we weren't aware of, like the bed and outlet in the bedroom... so we can take care of them as soon as possible. With best wishes, Juli and Steven
