Charming Cottage in Oceanfront Resort in Rockport!
|Per night||$129 - $149|
Our charming cottage is comparable to the size of a hotel suite but holds a higher sleeping capacity, is complete with a kitchen (all cookware, dinnerware and utensils are included) and serves as a more “home-like” environment. Nestled inside a combined cottage and camping resort, you can enjoy the solitude of having a cottage of your own, spare an extra expense by dining in, relax with central air and heating and enjoy our well-kept and delightful interior décor.
This cottage sits on a resort with an ocean front observation deck, heated swimming pool, playground, volleyball and horseshoe pits, sports field and a coffee/snack shop.
Coastal Villages: Get lost exploring the scenic harbors, historic lighthouses and unique shops, galleries and restaurants of Camden, Rockport and Rockland. Pack a lunch and take a drive or hike to the top of Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park where unforgettable panoramic views of Penobscot Bay await.
Islands: Visit one or more of the beautiful islands that lie just offshore. The Laura B from Port Clyde will take you to magical Monhegan Island, where footpaths lead past artists’ studios and galleries through ancient forests to high granite cliffs. You might be lucky and see a whale. From Rockland board the ferry for Vinalhaven, an island with a bustling fishing community. The ferry from Lincolnville Beach takes you to Isleboro, an ideal island to explore by bicycle.
Lighthouses: Maine has more lighthouses than any other state. In addition to Indian Island Light, which can be viewed from the campground, we can provide directions to three (3) other local lighthouses, and altogether there are 10 within an hour’s drive, passing through several pretty fishing villages along the way.
Beaches: Although our coastline is beautifully rocky and rugged, we will show you where to find the secluded, sandy beaches perfect for a day out with the kids or the sea kayaks. Birch Point Beach in Owl’s Head is one of the finest.
Museums: Several world class museums can be explored, including the brand new Maine Lighthouse Museum in Rockland, the outstanding Owl’s Head Transportation Museum, and art lovers will not want to miss the Farnsworth Museum, one of the finest regional art museums in the country and which houses a permanent collection of Andrew, Jamie and NC Wyeth works.
Outdoor Recreation: Penobscot Bay is home to the largest schooner fleet in the world. Take a 2-hour cruise on one of our historic schooners such as the Schooner Heron or the Morning in Maine or a lobster cruise aboard the Lively Lady Too. If you have more time, take a 3-day sail on a larger windjammer like the Schooner Ellida. You can also paddle your own kayak or canoe around Camden Harbor or scenic Megunticook Lake. Guided tours and rentals are available at the harbor. In addition to boating, you can explore 30 miles of hiking trails in Camden Hills State Park, golf at your choice of four local courses, choose from lake or ocean fishing, or explore the coastal roadways by bicycle.
Day Trips: Using Camden has your home base, you can take many short day trips to some of the other well known attractions in Maine. Acadia National Park is only 75 miles from the campground. Explore Pemaquid Point, a lovely drive with vistas of sea and forest to a lighthouse perched on spectacular glacier carved rocks. Boothbay Harbor, Bar Harbor and LL Bean in Freeport are some other easy destinations.
Our Festivals: The North Atlantic Blues Festival draws headline blues performers the second weekend in July. Lobster lovers will enjoy the 5-day Maine Lobster Festival the first weekend in August. The newest addition to our summer festival lineup, the Maine Boasts and Harbor Show, happens the 3rd weekend in August. The Maine Antiques Festival and the Union Fair are both held in August. Labor Day weekend in Camden hosts the largest single gathering of windjammers at the Windjammer Weekend gala. Check with the Rockland or Camden Chamber of Commerce for dates.
Restaurants: Naturally seafood, and specifically lobster, is on almost everyone's "must eat" list when they visit Maine, and we will be happy to share with you our favorite lobster shacks. But our local restaurants can do much more than just the catch of the day. Two of the best, and featured in Gourmet and Bon Appétit among others, are Primo Restaurant, owned by chefs Melissa Kelley and Price Kushner, and The Hartstone Inn's restaurant under chef Michael Salmon. Let us know if we can assist you with obtaining reservations.

The cottage is small but comfortable. The only room we did not use is the 2nd bedroom which is nothing more than a closet with a window. It will be better utilized if the bunk bed is removed and replaced with a crib. My kids preferred to use the loft and the sofa for sleeping. The surroundings are clean and pretty. It has an ocean front but no beach to walk, only 20 ft cliffs.

We had a great trip to Maine, it is amazing country. The property and location of the cottage was perfect. Mid Coast of MAine. The walk down to the ocean and the ocean view was very nice. The lighthouse, lobster traps, ocean, boats and coast line were picture perfect Maine. The cottage was very small. The second bedroom was not a bedroom...you only had about 6 inches to get into the bunk bed. In the loft you had to crawl in order to geet to the beds. Nice place but too small. Bedroom 2 is a joke!
