The space
You will love this comfortable downtown house where you can enjoy a quiet evening and a large private yard, but be just steps away from all the downtown activity. There is a separate side porch entrance with space for shoes and coats. The house has a fully equipped modern kitchen with center island, dishwasher, gas range, if you can resist the dining options two blocks away. The dining room has seating for 5. The living room has comfortable chairs and a gas wood stove. Across from the dining room, you will find a desk area, set up for a lap top with internet connection. (There is also a private study area upstairs.) There is a full bath with a walk-in shower downstairs.

Upstairs there are, 2 bedrooms, both with air conditioners. There is also a private bath with large soaking tub, a guest favorite. The master bedroom has a comfortable 4-poster queen size bed, chaise lounge for afternoon reading, dresser space, closet space, and a view over the backyard. The front bedroom has a double bed and a single bed, comfortable seating, dresser space, and closet space. Guests will be provided with clean, professionally laundered, linens and towels. During the colder months, the upstairs guest space has a separate thermostat to regulate heat according to guest preferences.

Enjoy our side porch which is a great spot to enjoy morning coffee. We have a large fenced in private back yard, great for evening barbecues on our gas grill. There is parking for 1 guest car and parking is also available on the street.

Wight house was built by James Wight, a machinist and consulting steam engineer when he returned from serving in the Second Maine Regiment as Chief Musician in the civil war. He had moved up from Lowell Massachusetts where his parents remained. Very soon after the house was built, he married Emma Estelle Burpee. The Burpees owned the land on which the house sits and it was deeded to James at that time. Presumably he won over the Burpees and #26 was the love nest for his new wife.

Guest access
Guests will have full and private access to the front part of the house. There are two upstairs guest bedrooms with private bath. The laundry (upstairs) is also available for guest use. There is also a private study space upstairs. Downstairs guests with have full use and private access to the living room, dining room, study space, kitchen, and full bath. Guests will have full access to the side porch and the back yard (which includes a gas grill).

Other things to note
The house comes with wireless internet and standard spectrum television cable. This is a non-smoking property and a no pet accommodation. We ask that nothing leave the house, so please plan accordingly for such things as beach towels or picnic supplies. Please be considerate of our friendly neighborhood and the impact that comings and goings, lights and noise can create. Thank you!

Location

Rockland, Maine, United States

Our home is on a quiet residential street within a 4 minute walk to Rockland's Main Street attractions, including The Farnsworth Museum, Contemporary Art Museum, The Strand Theater, Atlantic Bakery (!), numerous art galleries, our working harbor with its boardwalk and Harbor Trail, unique shops, and many excellent restaurants and cafes. Watch the schooners sail into the harbor or plan a schooner day trip. You will find that you can park your car in our driveway and easily walk to all Rockland downtown has to offer.
Our house is a five minute drive to Owls Head with its light house, beaches (including the white sandy beach, Crescent Beach), and the general store (voted best burger in Maine!). We are just 15 minutes from Camden. Rockland is a perfect home base for a midcoast Maine adventure!

My husband and I moved to Rockland nine years ago when we decided to take more time to enjoy life. We divide our time between Rockland and Vinalhaven, an island in the Penobscot Bay. We love Rockland's small town atmosphere and being an easy stroll to Main Street. Rockland is a vibrant town year round with interesting galleries, unique shops, great restaurants, the Strand movie theater/live entertainment, the busy waterfront, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, and the Farnsworth Museum. We enjoy Rockland's central midcoast location, making it an easy drive to Camden, Belfast, Tenant's Harbor, and many other interesting coastal towns. Rockland is a great place to be!

During your stay
We love meeting our guests in person, but during the summer we live on an island off of Rockland, so we are rarely in town. If we are in town, we will be in the back part of the house which has a separate entrance. We will bring along our 1 year old miniature Aussie, who will try and convince you to play ball with him.
Our neighbors, Chris and Erin, will be available to greet you, answer any questions, and solve any house issues if they should develop. We can be reached by phone and will respond promptly to texts, calls, emails, or Airbnb messages. You will find a welcome booklet with helpful information as well as a list of our local recommendations.
