About This Listing
A mile from the coast as the crow flies, our spacious farmhouse is located at the foot of a wooded mountain in beautiful Rockland Maine.
Our nearby town offers lovely sails in the harbor, skiing, hiking and a yearly lobster festival for early August visitors. Come breathe the fresh air and get a great night sleep in our comfortable, private guest room. The room (double bed) overlooks our slate patio and a expansive, lush yard where we often see deer, fox, and wild turkeys.
Breakfast makings are generally available from 7-9 am, bread, granola, fruit, yoghurt, tea and coffee. You may certainly bring your own food and use the frig as needed. Perhaps you would like to cook your own meal... feel comfortable to do so.
In the cooler weather we cook on a wood stove and sit around that same stove to read, knit and visit.
We have a second room available as needed. For very young children we have futons and sleeping mats available in the same room.
Terrific restaurants abound in Rockland, Rockport and in Camden a few miles away.
Patio, deck, most rooms available
Interaction with Guests
Guest interaction depends on the guests! Some want to chat and get to know us and/or the community, others want to come in, shower and get on with their own lives in Maine and return only to sleep...we are comfortable with either. We are not a destination family, but have been know to have long hours of conversation over breakfast in the kitchen or on the deck. We have made friends with Airbnb guests and have had several repeat visitors.
No public transportation, but there is a taxi service. Rockland is a nice 2 mile walk...bring a bike if you like! Enjoy a walk into town!
Please no smoking inside or outside on the property
Please no outdoor shoes worn in the house
Please strip the bed prior to leaving
Please use the ceiling fan when showering
Kitchen available for breakfast between 7-9am.
Check in time after 6pm.
Bridget and Ralph were so accommodating! Their home was beautiful and they made us feel very comfortable. They left breakfast out for us even though we missed the breakfast window of time! We would happily stay again.
Bridget and Ralph are great hosts! They provided us a very warm welcome in their lovely home. We enjoyed our short stay very much. The room is nice & bright and the area really quite and relaxing.
Thank you very much for our conversations and the excellent breakfast!!
BEST AIRBNB EVER. It was such a delight to spend a couple nights in Bridget and Ralph's lovely farmhouse. They are both pleasant, kind, hospitable, and ensured a comfortable stay.
My boyfriend Jeff and I had other accommodations set up which fell through last minute, so we were left scrambling to find a place to stay late Friday night. Bridget was the only person to respond, inviting us to come by. We weren't getting there until past midnight, so she left the lights on and door unlocked for us. We are endlessly appreciative!
The mere fact that we didn't have to sleep in our car was already a huge win, but on top of that, it so happened to be the best possible Airbnb spot we could have gotten. Bridget and Ralph have their own chickens and grow a lot of their own vegetables and herbs, which we were lucky enough to enjoy for breakfast! They picked us a variety of greens from the garden along with farm fresh eggs, and also had greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and coffee for us. And if that wasn't enough, they set place mats up on their outdoor patio table so that we could enjoy our breakfast outside in the morning sun. Jeff and I were literally on cloud-9.
The house is large, spacious, homey, and full of positive energy. The rooms/beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom clean. Location-wise, it's great. It's only a 20-minute drive to Camden and a few minutes from downtown Rockland. I hope we can come back sometime!
We love the house, the room, the lights and openness surround the house, the playing room, and the hearty breakfast (I wish I could taste one of those fresh eggs from the chicken coop! :D).
Bridget and Ralph are pleasant to talk with, my son love that Bridget even read him a story (thank you!), and a walk to the garden and coop are nice..!
We had a comfortable and relaxing stay with Bridget and Ralph. Their home is beautiful and serene, complete with chickens, cat and dog-- all very good natured. It was nice to have a taste of country living if even for a day. The breakfast and coffee was fabulous-- local yogurt with homemade granola and fresh berries-- what more could one want?
Bridget and Ralph were wonderful hosts in every way! They were very welcoming, generous, relaxed, and helpful with regard to answering any questions about the area. Breakfast was delicious! We loved sitting on the sunny deck together. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were cozy. They have a beautiful home that is situated within an easy driving distance to Camden and Rockland center. We would love to return in the future!
