What Past Guests Are Saying
Charming home with beautiful gardens overlooking the Rockport Ha
My family and I stayed at this beautiful home overlooking Rockport Harbor for one week in June. We were in the area to attend our son's wedding, and this location was conveniently positioned to go to all events very quickly. We felt right at home in the Community House. All amenities provided were just exactly what we would have in our own home. I doubted that the amenities described online would actually be provided at a very competitive rate for the area. The rooms were spacious and attractively furnished. The area was private, close to town but without the "hustle and bustle" we experience living in a metropolitan area. Elena graciously provided extra information about local interests and...my personal favorite...quilt shop locations!
The only reservation about this home was the extensive quiet hours of 9pm-9am, and visitors allowed only with permission. I would have liked to entertained our sons new in-laws and my son and fiance, but didn't have a specific time to request advance permission. Also, the living room doesn't seat 4 adults comfortably. The men in my family (both smaller built) felt that they might cause damage if they chose to sit on the antique couch.
This was our first visit to Maine, and we will no doubt return to the area and the Old Community House! Thank you so much for working with us to accomodate our crazy schedule. We loved it! Heidi and Jeff
Response from I A R E - 07/05/2012
Thank you for being such gracious and respectful guests!
The living room has at least 3 comfortable/sturdy armchairs, including a large rocking chair for any size adults.I also believe that your 4th adult in the party was an extra guest with proper accommodations in a separate unit, where comfortable chairs are supplied.We shall nevertheless address the antique couch to the best of the local abilities.
We do understand everyone's wish to have people over and to entertain, we know from experience that our system best suits everyone, providing a restful atmosphere, privacy and security in such an exclusive area.

Lovely studio with a fantastic view of harbor
Lovely studio apt. with a fantastic view of Rockport harbor. The well kept grounds and flowers leading to the dock made it feel like home. Being able to sit on the dock in the harbor watching the boats made for a quaint, enjoyable vacation. Only minutes from Camden and other wonderful places to see.
