This house is both beautiful and comfortable. Upon arrival, we found a binder with instructions and helpful information that made our check-in easy. The owner made herself readily available before and during our stay even while she was traveling abroad. Her enthusiasm for her home and her desire to make us feel welcomed was quite refreshing and much appreciated.
The walls of beautiful windows allow unobstructed views of the cove as well as a way to enjoy the ever-present breezes. There is plenty of room to spread out and comfortable seating arrangements on each level. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets and towels on each floor.
The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and appliances and comes with cookbooks and helpful menus from local eateries. The laundry room was also well stocked with a large-capacity washer and dryer.
If we were not out sight seeing, we enjoyed spending time on the deck or down at the dock experiencing the astounding tides. We saw ospreys hunting fish in the cove each evening as well as a fox family scampering across the lawn early one morning. We even saw a lone seal in the cove one high tide afternoon. In the evenings, our family enjoyed playing the games Risk and Monopoly that were kept upstairs.
We enjoyed exploring the Owl's Head Transportation Museum, and Owl's Head Light House, the Lighthouse Museum and the Children's Museum in Rockland, Camden, Spruce Point State Park, Camden State Park and just driving around looking at the beautiful landscape. Maine's state parks are jewels and seem to be scattered every few miles. If we ever return, I will purchase a Maine State Park car pass as this would have been more economical.
We liked Hannaford Supermarket in Rockland. We were able to try a lot of Maine-produced food there. We had fun eating at Wasses Hot Dog Stand in Rockland and Dorman's Dairy Dream in Thomaston--both are Maine traditions and child friendly.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore the mid-coast areas of Maine.
