About Maud Abess

I moved to Maine from the south in 2003 and haven't been able to leave New England since. The seasons are beautiful, each offering their own fun activities. In the summer and fall, the air is magical. The winter never allows enough time to sled and ski. I love living in small town Maine. Everyday, I am thankful I am able to live here.

Maud Abess purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Maud Abess chose Rockport

Rockport Village is a lovely place to call home. We are so close to town, but tucked away for privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

The bright, open feel of the home really makes it relaxing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rockport and visiting the neighboring towns of Camden and Rockland. The space was perfect for me and my husband, loved walking around the neighborhood and visiting some outstanding restaurants. And the host family is terrific!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Maud's place is one of the best rentals I have stayed in! It is spacious, comfortable, clean and so inviting. My only regret is not being able to stay longer. We certainly hope to be able to return for a longer visit. Maud herself is really helpful, so responsive and really knows the area. I would highly recommend staying here!
