Description of the Rockland vacation home rental
5 bedroom farmhouse with 2 fireplaces, large kitchen, dining room and living room on 12 wooded acres. Enormous screened porch, all with great views of the harbor and islands. Dirt road to beach and beautiful, panoramic views of Penobscot Bay. Swim, kayak, snorkel, picnic on a private beach. Play croquet in the front yard as you watch the boats go by. Walk to the lighthouse and see a 360 degree view of Penobscot Bays many islands, the Camden Hills and the Samoset Resort. Owls Head light is one of Maine's most photographed sights. Have a lobster and clam feast in the front yard or on the porch, depending on the weather (yes there is a large lobster kettle). House is fully furnished with linens, towels and a completely equipped kitchen. There's a TV, wood for the fireplaces and plenty of old and new books in the book cases to cuddle up with in the living room or rocking away on the porch in a rocking chair. On friday evenings, 4 or 5 wind jammers will anchor in the harbor and you can see them take down the sails for the night with a pair of binoculars.
