About Bonnie Schmidt

My husband and I operate a daysail business in Rockport Harbor with Schooner Heron. We raised our 2 daughters on the water both in Maine and the Caribbean. We started a boatbuilding business in Rockport 30 years ago, and it has blossomed into the sailing business with our family. The house in Rockport was restored by us in 1994 and we have been offering it as a rental since then.

Bonnie Schmidt purchased this house in 1994

What makes this house unique

House is in a quiet wooded area of Rockport Village, just minutes from the Harbor. Historic Rockport Harbor has many charming features, including a large lobster fishinhg fleet, traditional schooners providing daysails and weeklong trips, waterfront parks for picnics, boat launch for kayaking and sandy beach for swimming.

The worst place I have stayed ever in my 62 years...

  • 1 of 5

Perhaps if I were a refugee from say, Syria, or a sweatshop worker from say, Thailand, I would consider this a cozy house. I didn't expect a luxury mansion, the photos look basic. I am however, a lifelong American with American standards which include regulated temperatures, screens, windows that operate. This is probably cozy in winter, it stores heat. We were sweating so much inside we couldn't sleep. There is one small window fan that circulates air 3 feet in front of it, but not throughout even half of the room. There is no Air Conditioning. The windows were not fully operational. We had to put a coathanger in to keep one window from opening or closing on us. We reserved the included cruise on the Schooner Heron and when we showed up the owner requested payment. I said it is included in our rent, she said "I would NEVER give away my business like that." To avoid making a scene in front of her other customers she said we could go, but her attitude was so unpleasant who could trust her to go on the ocean with her, especially the same person who calls the house a cozy and comfortable place...The towels were two bath two hand threadbare, the cheapest towesl available, and the sheets were stained and cheap, muslin, not even cotton. For the price I would expect an inhabitable property. We left two nights early and paid for hotels so that we could recharge ourselves after the miserable stay we had here. The drawers were made of cardboard, the floor had soft patches where we might have fallen through. The staircase was a broken leg waiting to happen. One or two things out of whack would have been okay, but EVERYTHING was WRONG.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that you were so disappointed with your stay. I don't claim to offer a 5 star climate controlled house -no air conditioning, no flat screen tv, no ice maker, no jacuzzi, no hot tub, no 400 count Egyptian Cotton sheets with After Eight mints on the pillows. This is very clear in the listing. Please read to see what is included and what is not. It is a simple cottage (in the original sense of the word), basic and cozy. It clearly shows a spiral staircase in the photo. If one cannot maneuver this, one should not choose my cottage. You are entitled to your opinion, but it is just that. I have had numerous guests all summer long that have been quite pleased with their stay. You can read the reviews on this and other popular house rental sites. Again, I am sorry that you were so unhappy with your stay and hope you do your research on your next rental so you are not disappointed with your future stay, wherever that might be. My property was clearly not the right fit for you.

Loved this Rockport Location!

  • 4 of 5

50 Pleasant Street is a very pleasant cottage just a short walk down the hill to the Rockport Harbor. We loved this aspect of the cottage and enjoyed walking to the Shepherd Pie Restaurant for two delicious dinners (do not miss this restaurant if you book the cottage). The owner was most helpful getting us settled and giving us good ideas about what to do and see in this beautiful rural, peaceful Maine environment. It's a very cozy little house and we loved staying there. Hopefully we will get to return some day.

Great Location. Appropriate size for a couple.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here August 2013. It was a really great choice for us and I'd recommend it to other couples or small families who want an alternative to a hotel or inn while not paying for a huge house with rooms you wouldn't ever use. The unit is simple but has all the basics you would need and is comfortable and clean. The location is fantastic for jumping off to do activities and day trips. It is very close to Rt 1 but still very quiet and peaceful. Camden is just a few minutes away for dinner, boating, and hiking Mt Battie. Rockland is also just a few minutes in the other direction which has nice calm water sea kayaking. Rockport Harbor is very beautiful, and only a short walk away. We took part in a sail on the Schooner Heron which was fantastic -- the best part of the trip.

The owners were very easy to work with and the pictures posted to VRBO are accurate.

Owner's Response: I am happy the guests found the house to be to their liking. As mentioned, the proximity to several harbors, lakes and hiking trails makes it a great place to be based to explore Mid-coast Maine. The house itself is a nice quiet place to come back to and relax after a long day of recreation.
