Modern waterfront home with lighthouse and harbor views. Fully furnished with a mix of nautical and antique furnishings - this home belongs to sailors and is inspired from their lifestyle. Sit back and relax and enjoy the spectacular views of Rockland Harbor and The Breakwater Lighthouse from several rooms in the house including the terraced deck outside or the large mowed lawn between the house and water. Walking distance to Rockland where they hold the annual Lobster Festival, North Atlantic Blues Festival & Maine Boats and Harbors Show.
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 including world-famous PRIMO which is almost across the street.
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 in front of the cottage. Not necessarily a "swimming beach" - this is a good beach for sitting at in folding chairs or 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 2 miles further away in Owls Head such as Crescent Beach, Crocketts Beach, or Birch Point Beach State Park.

Working with Justin and his crew was easy and all information was clearly commuincated via email and the property handbook at the house.
Summer Wind is a great home in an amazing location. The view of the harbor is prefect. The Modern kitchen and a great room lay-out made for a perfect stay. Evenings on the deck watching the harbor was peaceful.

As always you guys have done a great job prepping the house for us and putting a house out there that is a perfect home away from home. The book of what to do while in town was a nice surprise.
Absolutely loved the view! Watched ships come in and out for hours! Landscaping was very nice. Everything was so CLEAN. It felt like a hotel but better! Loved that a fresh sponge was set out and there was soap in each bathroom. Our five year old could use the bathroom as soon as we got there! Awesome!

Met Justin who was polite and helpful.
We have rented houses in various states of the US and in Europe and this is one of the best. The views of the harbour are enchanting and we sat there for hours watching the boats come in and out, including a number of tall ships. All of the facilities inside and out are of the highest quality. The house is in easy reach of Rockland centre and also the beaches around Owls Head. Garden and deck were great and the inside was unbelievably comfortable. There are many great things about Summer Wind.
Not quite a facility of the property but Jess's fish store just up the road is a palace of delights.

Everyone I talked to at On the Water in Maine while I was at Summer Wind was extremely nice and helpful.
We were completely stunned by the beauty of the Summer Wind Property and the view from the living room. I want your kitchen! We brought my mom with us on vacation and I am pretty sure she plans on going back with her friends. Well done.
