Enjoy your stay in our guest room. The room is located on the second floor accessed by a separate staircase adding to the sense of privacy. Please note, the stairs are the original old New England steep backstairs. Those with super heavy or large suitcases or mobility issues--be aware. The room has a comfortable double bed, shelf full of books along with a number of travel and hiking guides. Museum, restaurant and sailing brochures can be found in your room as well as other attractions. The kitchen and shared bathroom are located on the first floor beneath the bedroom.
You are welcome to use our kitchen while you are here. We simply ask that you clean up following each meal. Use of the washer and dryer is possible, but please ask first. We will provide coffee, juice, and breakfast (homemade waffles, granola and yogurt, fruit, toast, eggs, etc.) Breakfast will vary based on availability and preferences.
We are located right in town--two blocks from the ferry and bus terminal and downtown's fabulous restaurants and vibrant arts community. Our home is close to everything, but located on a dead end street which offers us plenty of quiet in the city center. We offer off-street parking. The property is situated on nearly 1/2 acre lot boasting beautiful gardens, including the addition of a large cutting garden in spring of 2016. Relax with a book in one of our adirondack chairs or walk to town and immerse yourself in all that Rockland has to offer.
