DOGS PERMITTED? Sorry, Dogs are NOT permitted at this property.

This Two-bedroom home is perfect for couples looking to get away and enjoy a romantic stay in Midcoast Maine. The idyllic neighborhood setting and stylish cottage decor provide a great Maine coast retreat close to dining, shopping and sightseeing.

Located right off Rockport Harbor with great views. Built in 1881, the house has updated furnishings and appliances while maintaining classic antique charm.

Located at the head of Rockport Harbor, this property is conveniently located to all that Camden/Rockport area has to offer. 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. Launch a kayak from the dock in the harbor nearby and paddle the harbor, keeping a watchful eye out for harbor seals.  The property owner provides space on a rack a short walk away at the harbor to store your kayaks, or some that you may rent, so you can have easy access to them.

On the Water in Maine is very easy to work with and if there are any concerns, it is easy to get a response from them and they are very welcoming. The material they leave in the rentals is informative even for those of us who are frequent Maine visitors and already have our favorite places.

This is an absolutely lovely place and you cannot ask for a better view...overlooking Rockport Harbor. It is comfortable and decorated nicely and has everything you could possibly need. We loved staying there.

I loved the location of this property particularly sitting on the deck and looking at the beautiful Rockport harbor. It is an easy walk to Rockport village and the 2 restaurants and galleries.

On the Water in Maine is the most professional rental service I have worked with. I appreciate the attention to detail: the booking process and payment procedure; communication between booking and arriving including "what to bring" lists; and information notebook at the rental site. I felt secure that if a problem where to arise it would be handled quickly. i have already recommended On the Water in Maine to others.

The Lightkeeper is a lovely home and was perfect for the two of us. The view is absolutely amazing looking directly into the harbor from the hilltop. Every thing we needed was supplied and in excellent working order. The decor of this home is very pleasing and the furniture comfortable. The kitchen is large and easy to navigate, cook and dine in. The location is peaceful and great for walks to the park or into Rockport. The central location on the coast makes it convenient for day trips in either direction.

It was a pleasure working with On the Water. Everything was clearly stated and emails about our upcoming stay came regularly and promptly with all the information necessary to make our plans.There were instructions for all of the applicances in the house and a binder with everything we needed to know about opening up and closing the house.

We were thrilled with the property, the Lightkeeper's Cottage. It was clean, well stocked and perfectly located. It exceeded our expectations. I never tired of the view of the Rockport Harbor from our deck. We were within walking distance of the harbor, the village with it's lovely restaurants, the library and galleries. We enjoyed taking a walk everyday into the village and exploring the harbor from different angles. We were also a short ride into Camden. Overall, a wonderful visit. We hope to return again.

Stayed for 9 nights in September & could easily have stayed longer. This is a very comfortable cottage exactly as in the photos in a quiet residential area away from the main road. Sitting on the deck watching the boats to & fro to the harbour was a delight.
