"The Good Life" has the best of both worlds - close to the hustle and bustle of downtown Rockland with its numerous shops and dining options, but located on a quiet dead end road overlooking the working Rockland Harbor. The cottage has a wonderful enclosed 3 season porch with panoramic views of the harbor in a quiet and comfortable setting. Enjoy your coffee in the morning while watching the local lobster boats come and go. There are new renovations throughout while still keeping the original coastal cottage feel with exposed beams and woodwork. With western facing windows, enjoy stunning sunsets and watch the weather roll in.
Downtown Rockland has a vivid and colorful art district which includes the acclaimed Farnsworth Art Museum, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, the Maine Lighthouse Museum, and The Coastal Children's Museum. A few minutes away is Owls Head with popular beaches and sightseeing options. Grab a latte at Rock City Cafe and then stroll to the Home Kitchen Cafe for a memorable brunch and a famous sticky bun. Rockland has nearly 50 dining options to choose from and numerous spots to grab a drink or quick bite before heading out for the day. Bar Harbor is a 2 hour drive up scenic Route 1.
BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - there is a pea-sized / pebbly beach about 200 feet wide to the left of the cottage. Not necessarily a "swimming beach" - this is a good beach for sitting and relaxing in folding chairs or for launching kayaks. There is not an actual fine sandy beach at this property, but the beach itself is better than most in the area and that is why we have classified it as being "on" a sandy beach. Most guests will be more interested in going to the beaches located a 2 miles further away in Owls Head such as Crescent Beach, Crocketts Beach, or Birch Point Beach State Park.
NEED EXTRA ROOM? Just a short distance away, is a quaint comfortable guest suite, which can accommodate another couple (2 guests), while remaining close to the rest of the group. Click HERE to visit the Owls Head Guest Suite property page.
BOATS INCLUDED? None, this is not a property to boat from (although you can kayak with your own or a rental kayak from the nearby beach). The public boat launch is less than a mile away however.
