SEASIDE SERENITY-LOVELY OCEAN AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Owls Head Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 4 BR, 1 BA, outdoor enclosed shower/dressing room Sleeps 6

Step back in time to a spacious Maine retreat with vintage charm and modern conveniences. This peaceful and quiet 4 BR/1 bath 1910 cottage has been lovingly updated with new kitchen appliances and bathroom. Sit on the porch rockers and enjoy the view of Camden Hills and Rockland harbor while watching the sailboats come in and listening to our resident loons. Walk to the private pebble beach with commanding views of Rockland breakwater and hunt for sea glass and shells. Come in after a busy day of sailing or kayaking to warm by the fire and watch large sailboats dock in the harbor at sunset. If you can bear to leave this wonderful setting, there is an actual sandy beach minutes away, wonderful upscale restaurants and boutiques, galleries and museums in Rockland (5 min.) and Camden (20 min.). Tuck yourself in under down comforters and luxurious cotton linens in one of our well-appointed bedrooms to bring you a relaxing rest by the sea, and welcome the next morning sunrise.

Ken and Barbara live in southern New Hampshire, and are close enough to Seaside Serenity to address all your concerns. Barbara would love to be in Maine all season, but her job as a Nurse-Midwife requires her to be close to home to tend to her moms and babies. Ken has been self-employed in the food industry, and is' the man' for the best croutons in New England.

Barbara Watrous and Ken Roy purchased this cottage in 2004

After many family trips to Maine, we finally found our perfect spot...an authentic Maine cottage which takes you back to a time of carefree summer days, reading on the porch, and listening to the sound of the sea, wind, and Rockland waterways.

We have worked hard to maintain the antique charm of a unique Maine cottage while providing those special comforts which make it 'home'. We welcome you to come and enjoy our special home.

WEDDING WEEK IN OWL'S HEAD

Wedding Week in Owl's Head
  • 5 of 5
This is a terrific spot in an out of the way location on a dead end road. (A little tricky to find after dark 1st time.) No traffic noise. Great harbor view with boats coming and going. 2 minute walk to a small, rocky, beach area. This was used as home base for the groom's family and it was perfect. Lots of room inside and great outdoor areas to accommodate comings and goings of wedding party. Very comfortable with lots of seating inside and out. The rocker collection on the front porch was well used. The kitchen is very well equipped (even an oyster knife!!!) for cooking small or large and coupled with grill served wonderfully for meals and entertaining. House is appointed with fun and tasteful items reflecting owner's life and interests. Nice vintage "Old Maine" feel. Outdoor fire pit a great way to spend evenings. The only caution is the single bathroom is on the man level and all bedrooms are on upper level up steep, narrow steps. Knee issues could present problems. If you are prone to night time bathroom visits, take care. The outdoor shower was a hit with the younger crowd! Recommend highly for quiet get away or group events. Descriptions and pictures did not do justice to the beautiful setting. The View from every area was spectacular. Owners made every attempt to make our stay enjoyable. Basket of goodies was well received. We will be back!

I MISS IT ALREADY

  • 5 of 5
We had a family gathering here last week. This house was perfect. At times we had many people visiting and eating lobster. There were many different venues for sitting and visiting or just watching the view or letting the two boys just roam. For those of us who stayed in the house, the beds were comfortable, the fans did their job when Maine(!) in August got too hot and we were extremely comfortable. The view, of course, is spectacular...I have many pictures on my camera because I couldn't stop. But, I couldn't capture the hummingbird that visited daily. He would pop up, look at the porch a moment, and dash away. Even with all the people around the bathroom situation never became a problem.
The listing is accurate, the location, while not directly on the water, has great access and views, the amenities were very good and as described, and the owner was attentive and available.
I would recommend this property to a friend - my relatives were all there and loved it.

CHARMING, CLEAN, COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
This is a great location , not overly "touristy", with lots of small villages, harbors and classic Maine seacoast to visit. The cottage itself is very well maintained, roomy, clean and comfortable. Lovely, large front porch and a nice patio with firepit provided lots of places for all of the family to gather. It was a great experience overall--the owners were very friendly and helpful. Our grandson enjoyed all the chocolate treats left in the bedrooms!

SEASIDE SERENITY STAY

  • 5 of 5
My stay at Seaside Serenity was the most relaxing vacation I have had in a long time! My boyfriend and I stayed with 3 other couples in this true arts-and-crafts Maine cottage and had a blast! The proximity to the harbor was a short walk, perfect for seaglass hunting and catching the perfect sunsets. The front porch was the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee. We stayed in the bedroom attached to the upstairs porch and snuggling up with a book in that porch made you feel like you were staying in a treehouse! We made use of the outdoor firepit every night and on the one night we had rain, the inside fireplace was the perfect subsitute! Everything about the house was clean, charming and cheerful. The beds were ridiculously comfortable (and from someone who sleeps on a tempurpedic every night, that is QUITE the compliment!) I hope we can return to this haven someday soon!! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us Barb and Ken!

SEASIDE SERENITY OWLS HEAD, MAINE

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful vacation. The house is charming and comfortable, and most everything you need is provided. The area is beautiful and there is enough to do to keep busy, or you can choose to relax on the porch and just simply enjoy the scenery. We did a little of both, and unfortunately before we knew it, it was time to pack up and leave. Barbara and Ken go to great lengths to make sure their guest are happy.
