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.

What a pleasure! From the start, the staff was so very helpful and patient in describing different properties and suggesting
what our party would enjoy, given age and interests. I was never felt to be a 'pest' with any phone calls or questions I had.
I had total confidence that our choice was going to be great~ the complete set of pictures we could view, was wonderful.
On the Water In Maine is beyond professional. Everything is made clear and written out so there are no surprises.
It was all that was promised and more! The property was fantastic~ well equipped and very well-appointed, right down to a
baby grand piano. The view off the deck was off a picture postcard. The location was perfect, secluded, but still convenient to Camden. We totally enjoyed Rockcroft.
