I have stayed at Owls Head numerous times. The house has an open, clean, comfortable, and airy aspect. What the picture does not show is the lovely view of a road that winds down to the waterfront. In the distance are islands of pine trees, ocean, and big sky with soaring gulls. When you sit at the big wooden kitchen table or on the deck just outside you can gaze outward on all this beauty. It's like being tranquilized!
What makes a vacation so wonderful here is that not only are there country pleasures but within a short driving distance are other scenic towns, restaurants, theater, wonderful museums, including an amazing Transportation Museum and the Farnsworth art museum. There is nothing quite like the coast of Maine and in particular Owls Head.
