About the property

A writer's home in lovely 1803 neighborhood is 10-minute walk to downtown's best

This writer’s 1803 home in lovely Rockland neighborhood is a leisurely 10-minute walk to downtown and the waterfront.

Thoughtful renovations have given the rooms renewed life, with fresh paint on the walls and floors, cottaged furniture, and new beds with crisp linens. The charming space offers a first floor kitchen stocked with cooking equipment and tableware, two separate dining areas, a living room with inviting furniture, and a utility closet with washer/dryer combo. The second floor has a master bedroom with queen bed, an upstairs parlor/bedroom with a full bed and sitting area, and a simple bathroom. A flagstone patio and lawns invite outdoor relaxation.

The ocean sparkles at the end of this quiet block, and Prosehaven’s off-street parking area offers the perfect spot to leave the car after a day exploring midcoast. Stroll downtown and discover Rockland’s museums, restaurants, marina, quirky shops, festivals, boardwalk, and nightlife.

Strong wifi, smart tv, and even smarter books available, and please do browse the bookshelves.

Best for adults who appreciate historic buildings, don’t mind stairs, and favor the idiosyncratic.
 Writers and artists find Prosehaven a perfect and productive home for creative work. Readers and others in search of real relaxation never want to leave.

Sorry, no pets.

About Maureen Jennings

Mystery writer and publishing media wrangler.

I've lived in New York City, Montana, Massachusetts, and northern California. Then I discovered Maine. I've never loved a place more.

I write mysteries, and I read far too much fiction.

Maureen Jennings purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Maureen Jennings chose MidCoast - Penobscot Bay

The house was built in 1803, and I couldn't resist its period charm.

What makes this apartment unique

Rear wing newly renovated.

In town and an easy walk to harbor, restaurants, shops, museums, and library.

Prosehaven was the perfect place for me!

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent two weeks at Prosehaven. It's wonderful! Just a short walk to town and its many restaurants, shops and even the Farnsworth Museum, not to mention its proximity to the water! Maureen was gracious, generous and accommodating, concerned with making sure I had everything I needed. I will be back the next time I come to Rockland.
