OWLS HEAD VILLAGE POST OFFICE

Owls Head Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bathroom, Sleeps 6 Maximum

A Post Office as a vacation rental? Yes - Absolutely. This spectacular renovated building started as a barn on a nearby island in the 1800's. The downstairs of this historic building has been the working local post office since 1931. Upstairs, insulated from any noise of a small village meeting place, is the open loft style apartment, with soaring cathedral ceilings. Designed and decorated like a historic Maine cottage. Comfortably furnished, this property is the perfect romantic getaway. A great location, with amenities close by. The modern, cozy kitchen will support your cooking needs. The loft and cupola are private retreats for children in your party, just like sleeping in a tree house! The views from the cupola are panoramic, with a peek of the ocean in the distance. There's a private deck off the back offering beautiful views, where you can eat dinner and watch the sunset. Next door is the 'world's best' general store with 'award winning' breakfasts and lunches served daily.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Doug,



We had a ball! The beaches, restaurants, and back deck where our favorite places to hang out! Thank, you thank you for the bottle of wine. How did you know? That is what we put in the baskets for our out of town guests!



Truly, you have a wonderful get away! Thank you for letting us be part of the furniture for a moment!!! We had a great stay! Loved the store next door!!!



Best,

Kris

a gem

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful and restful getaway. Everything was perfect at the Post Office- clean, comfortable, quiet, and artistic. We spent a long weekend here and really did not want to leave. The property is just removed enough to be quiet, but not far away from anything. The set up is thoughtful, making our stay effortless. The owners lovely to deal with. I think that we will be back again. With luck, it will be a much longer stay.

The Post Officeis a Gem

  • 5 of 5
After the success of our vacation at the Post Office last year, everyone in our family couldn't wait to get back there. The girls ran straight to the frog pond and we all love to admire your shrubs and plants with birds and butterflies. I love your landscaping and design sense. It is all so colorful but comfortable inside and out. We swim at Birch Point Beach andclimb the rocks. This year we cycled to Crescent beach almost daily . We enjoyed the Farnsworth, the Grasshopper and all the boutique stores.We discovered Lulu's and slurped gourmet icecreams everynight with incredible combinations of Blueberry Sage sorbetto, lemon mint, pear and blue cheese..yumm!! We had to return to the secret quarry again which was as spectacular and secluded as ever,Last year we enjoyed ferry and hiking Monhegan.We took in the Transportation Museum this year which was surprisingly interesting fo rus all and not just Dad. Our 1/2 hour Scenic Flight with Penobscot Air was spectacular, flying over the islands to Vinal Haven and along the coast, $160 for up to 6 people we felt was great value and so memorable, So besides the fantastic array of activities and things to see and do in Owl's Head, it is the comfort of this quaint but efficient charming little apartment that draws us back.. I would highly recommend to families, artists, honeymooners and more.... you will not be disappointed!

Comfy Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Hi Doug,

We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful weekend! The loft was well equipped and incredibly comfortable. We loved how much space there was for all of our weekend activities. The General Store right next door provided a great meal when we didn't want to travel into Rockland for lunch. I would definitely recommend this rental to any couple looking for a quiet and relaxing weekend!
