    We felt very welcomed into this house, and it has almost anything you could possibly need! Tina was friendly, but never intrusive, and we hardly knew they were upstairs. The kids enjoyed playing the games and reading the books they have. It was walking distance to downtown Rockland, and a short drive to Camden and Rockport which we also visited.

    5/5 Excellent

      Kindness and warmth prevail!

      In the bitter Maine cold we found Tina and George's home to be a delightful respite. The first floor home is lovely, impeccably clean, and convenient to central Rockland and nearby sites. On a quiet street just off Rte. 1, we were within walking distance of the best breakfast in Maine and a playground. The home is beautiful. Unlike other places we've stayed where we need to make the place toddler-proof to protect the vases, etc., this home was comfortable from the start. The cleanliness met my high standards. The bedrooms were warm and comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed. Tina and George made sure we, including twin toddlers, were comfortable. They checked in, helped out when I forgot to lock the door one day, and just made us feel that they were there for us. When we return to Maine in the off-season this is where we will stay! So much nicer than a motel. I give it an A , that plus for the kindness and warmth of Tina and George.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great place. Great stay.

        Very nice property and centrally located to many sites and walking distance to the harbor. We loved our stay in Rockland!
