This charming, waterfront cottage has all the comforts of home, fully furnished with a mix of nautical and antique furnishings. Sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular views of Rockland Harbor and The Breakwater Lighthouse. Walking distance to Rockland where they hold the annual Lobster Festival, North Atlantic Blues Festival & Maine Boats and Harbors Show.
Enjoy the open porch overlooking the harbor. Enjoy the neighboring beach, which is a great spot to launch a kayak from. Sit on the porch in the evening and watch the sun's reflection off the Breakwater Lighthouse. Short walk to downtown Rockland, museums, cinema, schooners, shopping, and fabulous restaurants.
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.
LINENS & TOWELS: The rental of this property includes all bed linens and towels. Beds will be made up upon arrival and there will be one bath towel and wash cloth per listed occupancy, one hand bath towel per bedroom, one bath mat towel per bathroom, and two kitchen towels in the kitchen. Additional bath towels can be rented.

Our favorite feature was the lovely view of the boats resting in and sailing out of the harbor...the eagles, osprey and loons... The lovely and well-maintained home in a quiet neighborhood. We stayed one week last year at Seaside Cottage - two weeks this year. Enough said.
