Lakewatch Manor, ( built in 1767, is the ideal mid-coast destination for the workshop. The charming, lushly landscaped three acre property on the shore of Lake Chickawaukie is an easy bike or walk to Rockland’s vibrant downtown and oceanfront. Each suite has a lakeview and a queen bed with private bath. Eco-sensibility is reflected in both housekeeping and landscaping practices.
