CLASSIC MAINE WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON STUNNING CRESCENT BEACH

Owls Head Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, 1 den. Sleeps 4 in one bedroom, one den

The cottage sits just 25 feet from the water's edge. Like all proper oceanfront summer cottages, it is oriented towards the water, with beautiful views of the beach and the open ocean from almost every room. A nicely landscaped lawn surrounds the cottage and hedges of beach roses frame the path down to the beach. A hammock sits under the mature maple tree, the covered swing is a perfect place to read and the picnic table will play host to many outside lobster bakes and cook outs. The spacious master bedroom has incredible views of the ocean. The den area is a great place to relax at the end of the day. A pull-out sofa offers additional sleeping quarters. The dining room and living room are combined - lined with large windows overlooking the front lawn and the ocean. A very comfortable sofa and the gas-fired brick fireplace makes this room a popular spot to gather. The galley-style kitchen is reminiscent of days gone by with beautiful shiplap cupboards, built-ins, and a breakfast bar.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered

PERFECT GET AWAY FOR A COUPLE AND THEIR DOGS

  • 5 of 5
One of the measures of a great place is how much you enjoy yourself when the weather doesn't cooperate with your original plans. We had stormy weather most of our week, and had a great time watching the waves. The setup with the sitting room facing the water was excellent, with a toasty gas insert to keep us feeling cozy as the wind blew around the house. It was also fun watching the lobster boats check out their pots in the bay.

We also had a few days of sunshine, and the outdoor furniture was perfect to get a little sun. The dogs also liked basking in the sunbeams on the floor. Walking to the beach involved rocks, but not a problem at all with good shoes. If that still makes you nervous, you can walk along the road to the public access for an easier entry.

We really enjoyed being tucked away from it all while still being close enough to things if we wanted. We bought lobsters several times from the pier in Owls Head (Ship to Shore Lobster), and recommend trying new shell if available for easier cracking. We also visited the Owls Head General Store for the award-winning hamburgers. A highlight was the dinner we had at Primo (a short drive to Rockland). It was one of the best meals we have had anywhere anytime, including Michelin rated restaurants.

Everything was clean and in good order. There are lots of plates and glasses, more than the two of us needed. We had one problem with the hot water heater while there which was promptly fixed. The owner offered to come wait for the plumber, which would have been great if we had urgent plans, but given that our plans were to laze about, we just waited for him ourselves. It's nice to know that any problems could be promptly addressed.

We definitely plan to be back. If you're looking for a little hideaway of your own, you'll probably like it too.

Notes:
A very comfortable sofa and the gas-fired brick fireplace makes this room a popular spot to gather. There is also a desk tucked into the corner of this room, which is a perfect place to set up a remote station for a laptop.The galley-style kitchen is reminiscent of days gone by with beautiful shiplap cupboards, built-ins, and a breakfast bar and is fully-equipped with the necessities of cooking. A coffeemaker, toaster and microwave are also provided. Crescent Beach Cottage is located on a dead end road which minimizes traffic. This is a peaceful place within walking distance to the village center of Owls Head (find a neat General Store there, as well as a library, post office and a wharf to buy lobsters). Within a 5–10 minute drive, find Rockland and all it has to offer. Tenants Harbor, Port Clyde, Camden and Rockport are all a sort distance away as well. Owls Head is a great place to feel away from it all while still having all the Midcoast area has to offer at your fingertips!
