About the property

This beautiful waterfront home offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths and is located in the village of Owls Head, Maine (just off Route 73) with amazing ocean views. It is the perfect vacation home for a large family or two families that enjoy traveling together. The home has an open concept living area that is filled with light, and a large deck that spans the full width of the home, overlooking the harbor. The kitchen is fully-equipped with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

The home has just been completely renovated in 2016 with brand new furnishings, linens, and kitchenware. The location is perfect for you to enjoy everything that Midcoast Maine has to offer…museums, restaurants, light houses, shopping, hiking, and beaches. It’s just minutes from Rockland’s vibrant downtown and only a few miles from the Knox County Regional Airport.

Imagine waking up in the master suite of this luxurious home, and opening your eyes each morning to breathtaking views of Rockland Harbor from your king-sized bed. The expansive deck overlooks the harbor and is outfitted with a barbeque, outside dining area, and rocking chairs. You can spend the perfect day reading a book, sipping cocktails with friends, or just enjoying the view of the Rockland breakwater and lighthouse. This property provides direct access to the beach below. The home boasts two kayaks for your use, as well as a fire pit complete with Adirondack chairs for an evening gathering of marshmallow roasting and savoring ocean breezes!

The first floor of this lovely home has a family room (with sleeper sofa), two bedrooms each with queen-sized beds, a full bath and direct access to the back yard through sliding glass doors. The second floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bath and the master bedroom. The master boasts an en-suite bath with double vanity sinks, walk in shower, and a king-size bed. The deck can be accessed from the living room or master bedroom.

The home also offers a two-car garage with additional designated parking. We also offer WiFi throughout the house, four smart televisions so you can access your Netflix, Hulu, and other accounts, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Wonderful ocean side property.

Very nice well maintained home with bay views in quite private area. Convenient to all mid coast areas and quick access to Rockland stores and restaurants.

Terrific View

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could have stayed longer! The view was great, very relaxing. House has just about everything you can imagine that you would need. The only criticism I could make was the on the stairway going down to the beach. It was little shaky when you got down to the bottom, but did not deter us from going kayaking and swimming!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation, and found the home to have everything you needed. It is definitely a great spot for a group of friends, or a family to enjoy spending time together, both outside on the deck and around the fire pit, and inside cooking a fabulous lobster dinner and just watching a movie. And, who wouldn't enjoy exploring Rockland Harbor in a kayak right from your back yard...it's something everyone will love!

Girl getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are six women who have vacationed together for 29 years. We loved our stay at your beauitful house. The house was great. It was well furnished and had everything we needed. Sue and Valerie did a great job of handling our reservations. Thank you so much for sharing your house. Rockland and the surrounding area is beauitful. We have a great time touring parts of Maine. We also left a bit of money to sustain the economy.

Owner's Response: We're so happy that you enjoyed the home, and MidCoast Maine! Both have something for everyone! We hope you enjoyed cooking a lobster dinner in the homes well-appointed kitchen, a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the ocean, the firepit and cool ocean breezes in the evening, and of course, the kayaks! Hopefully you found some of our beautiful hiking trails and ponds, sampled wine at the vineyards in the area, tried many of our fabulous local restaurants, and explored our many local art galleries and museums. We love that you "left a bit of money" at some of our lovely local shops to sustain the economy—Definitely women after our own hearts! Fall brings some amazing leaf peeping, and the Maine winters are beautiful with lots of things to do, so please come back soon!

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Owls Head. The house had the most beautiful deck and yard. We spent many hours sitting and enjoying the view. The setting was very peaceful and the house was well equipped. No complaints about anything.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that you had a good vacation! This is a very special home with something for everyone to enjoy...the deck and views are just lovely and definitely everyone's favorite! We work hard to ensure that the grounds are well taken care of, and the home is spotless and well-maintained, in addition to having lots of indoor and outdoor games, books, tvs, and a kitchen that has everything you could possibly want to make that lobster supper for friends and family! We hope you'll come back soon...fall and winter are absolutely beautiful too!

Family Vacation & Wedding in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (my mother, my fiance, and my two siblings and their significant others) all stayed in the house for a total of two weeks. The house was SO spacious, and the rooms and living areas (both indoor and out) accommodated our group, and much much more. During our time in Maine, my sister got married in Union, Maine. We hosted a barbecue and a morning after brunch for the wedding, and had no problem grilling, cooking, and serving in this wonderful home. The furnishings are all comfortable and adequate, and the master suite is so elegant and extremely large with a private bathroom and walk-in closet. The water access was a great bonus, we enjoyed the kayaks by easily carrying them down the steps to the coast. We also spent time searching for shells and catching sun on the spacious back deck in the rocking chairs. The house was also extremely clean upon our arrival. The house is short drive to the adorable town of Rockland, and there are wineries, lighthouses, and shopping nearby! We can not say enough good things about this home! Will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that everyone had such a wonderful vacation and not only got to go to an amazing wedding, but also got to explore mid-coast Maine by land and by kayak! Please come back soon...leaf-peeping in the fall is just fabulous here, and the ice bar at the Samoset in January is the best! The chef is a champion ice carver and he makes the entire bar, tables, and sculptures, all on the patio, overlooking the golf course and the ocean...there's music and dancing and a good time is always had!

A wonderful home in a wonderful spot in Owls Head.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into this home we fell in love. The home is very well equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed the sailboats going out and coming into the harbor from the expansive deck while enjoying our wine and cocktails.

Overall, a wonderful week. I wish it had been longer.
