LOCATION: Rockport, in the Village just above Rockport Harbor
This relaxing and comfortable house, located just 1000 feet from Rockport Harbor, is a perfect retreat for those looking for a great home-base property in Mid-Coast Maine. A historical home from the 1800's, the house has new furnishings and is wonderfully decorated.
Small and beautiful Rockport is on the west side of Penobscot Bay, between Rockland and Camden. Fifty years ago, Rockport was home to lobstermen and fishermen who built their weirs in the harbor, but today the harbor is mainly for pleasure boats.
Rockport was at the heart of the Midcoast lime industry, and you can still see remnants of several old kilns on the waterfront nearby. The kilns inspire images of the night sky aglow with fires. The harbor, crowded with kiln wooders, unloading cords of four-foot spruce logs and limers loading casks for Boston and New York. Great piles of white lime tailings are still visible in Walker Park and on the banks of the Goose River. One story is told that a locomotive is buried in one of these piles, and small boys dig and dream.
If you like to take walks, follow Mechanic Street out towards Beauchamp Point where there a public access points to the rocky shore overlooking the harbor. Enjoy walking past large estates owned by some of today's most elite business people and former CIA operatives.
Launch a kayak from the dock in the harbor nearby and keep a watchful eye out for harbor seals.

Camden / Rockport
Well-loved by visitors and residents alike, the towns of Camden and Rockport were one until 1890. Even though governed separately today, they are essentially the same town combined with village center a mile apart. The mountains tumble down to meet the ocean's edge, creating some of the best views and hiking opportunities in the state.
The towns of Camden & Rockport each have a rich maritime heritage and an impressive resident fleet of classic windjammers. A truly unique way to explore mid-coast Maine is aboard one of these antique ships. You can sail from Camden Harbor on the Schooners Surprise or Olad, and the Heron from Rockport Harbor. To get a bit closer to the water, try a kayak tour. There are a number of companies that offer day and overnight trips leaving from Camden or Rockport Harbor or on nearby Megunticook Lake. Epicureans will delight in this area's many dining options from classic New England fare to modern French. Experience Maine's first vineyard at Lincolnville's Cellardoor Winery, where they create nearly two dozen delicious, handcrafted grape and blueberry wines. You can enjoy free tastings at their villa in Rockport.
