OCEANFRONT ON SANDY BEACH WITH VIEWS OF ISLANDS

Owls Head House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beachfront directly on a sandy beach in Owls Head, Maine. You can wake up with spectacular sunrises over the islands.

Beautiful view of islands on the Penobscot Bay. Ideal for those who want a quiet location, but who still want easy access to restaurants, stores, and activities.

The beach changes with the tides. At low tide you have lots of sandy beach area. At high tide, the water comes to the rocks.

The home is fully equipped. The style is open, uncluttered. On one side of the great room (kitchen, dinning area, and living room), there is one bedroom with its own bathroom. On the other side, there are two additional bedrooms that share a bathroom. Ideal for two couples that want some privacy or for parents - with older children - that want a little space of their own. All three bedrooms have one queen size bed.

The great room and two of the bedrooms have large windows that provide an oceanfront view. The house has been continuously updated. All windows are modern, easy to open with screens. Both bathrooms have been redone in the last several years. The kitchen as of 2011 has Corian countertop with integral sink and refaced cabinets.

House is 10 minutes from Rockland. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Rockland, Maine, one of its 2010 Dozen Distinctive Destinations. Rockland was selected for its authentic preservation of a rich history and its wide range of unique attractions, including a picturesque working waterfront that packs alluring cultural heritage with prized fresh seafood and world famous festivals. For 10 years the National Trust for Historic Preservation has annually selected communities across America that offer cultural and recreational experiences different from those found at the typical vacation destination. From dynamic downtowns and stunning architecture to cultural diversity and a commitment to historic preservation, sustainability and revitalization, the selected destinations boast a richness of character and exude an authentic sense of place.

That's us in the picture!

Harold Trenka purchased this house in 1988

I came, I saw, I bought (my apologies to Julius Cesar for misquoting him!) But it was as simple as that. The first time I saw the view driving down the street, I knew and I never had a regret.

I love the ocean - I was raised in the Caribbean and spent my 20's in the Pacific with the navy. This spot has a sandy beach but it is nestled with rocky shoreline and near and far islands. It is very inviting to take the kayak out and go to one of the islands.

I bought this house in 1988, redid the entire interior over that winter, and each year try to make it better. The comment I get most often is that this is a place to relax and decompress. It blends being away from commercial areas but not being isolated and having many options for stores, restaurants, and entertainment near by.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This location was perfect for our stay. There is so much to do, we couldn't experience everything in our week stay. The house exceeded our expectations! Very relaxing. The kayaks are an added bonus. Watching the lobster boats from the living room was educational and interesting. The beds were very comfortable.

WONDERFUL, QUIET RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
this home is just like being at home. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need to fix gourmet meals at home, even a lobster dinner!! The furnishings are comfortable and the home is well decorated. The local scenery is beautiful and there are interesting local homes, even an old cemetary within walking distance. I would bring family members and frinds here at any time of year. The home is even equiped with WiFi, should you get withdrawal symptons from being away from the internet, or even need do do a little work online. Go, you won't regret it!!!

Map

Car: necessary

For kayakers - there are a lot of small islands nearby for exploring and for seal watching. Two kayaks are provided. There are also ferries to larger islands. Acadia National Park is couple hours away, but good for a day trip. Buy fresh lobster right off the pier at Owls Head, Rockland - ten minutes away - has a number of shops, art galleries, live theater at the restored 'Grand', and wonderful restaurants. Drive down the peninsula for other fishing towns and dockside dining.
