Charming and very private house in Rockport; perfectly located 1 mile from Rockport village and 2 miles from Camden. Open/cozy home with a gas fireplace, 2 bedrooms & 2 baths on the first floor; 2nd floor twin bed; sunny deck, gardens and large yard
The house has an open concept first floor with the sitting room, kitchen and dining area all part of one open space. There are 2 bedrooms (one with a brand new queen bed and the other with a full sized bed) and 2 bathrooms (one with a shower and the other with a shower/tub combo) on the first floor; the 2nd floor has one twin bed and a sitting area. There is a large back deck (with chairs/table and grill) overlooking the private backyard and gardens (the yard is mostly surrounded by woods and very private with frequent deer and turkey sightings). Sheets and towels are provided for you (so please give me an accurate headcount). The kitchen has all of the basic cooking tools but I am not a huge cook so if you are looking for a wide range of pots/pans, etc this might not be the kitchen for you but it seems to work well for most of my guests. I do not have cable TV so only the local stations are available; there is also wireless internet. There is no AC, as 363 days a year it is completely unnecessary (but I have ceiling and window fans for hotter days)

Atención a los huéspedes
I am retired and spend most of my time in a town 45 minutes away; I typically leave the key for you. You can reach me on my cell phone if you have any questions or concerns. I can usually be available to stop over if you need assistance with something.
Otros aspectos destacables
This is a lovely but small house on a very quiet dead end street and it is therefore not suited for large groups or hosting gatherings or parties. It is perfect for families with children or one or two couples.
I built this house 12 years ago and I love it; it is my full time home 6 months of the year, so please treat it well and respect my neighbors. Absolutely no smoking anywhere on the property and please no loud music that might bother the neighbors. Dogs might be considered for an extra cleaning fee. Also, if I don't have guests departing and arriving on the same day, I can be flexible with check in and departure times but please request this a few days ahead of time. If I have guests departing and arriving on the same day, I need to be very strict with the 10am departure time and 4pm arrival time, as it takes me the full time to get the house ready. Thank you for understanding!
I am recently retired; I have two daughters and three young grandsons who all live in Maine. I love Maine and feel so lucky to live in Rockport. Now that I have retired, I am renting my house from May through October (as I spend most of the summer in a town about 45 minutes away).
