COZY, PEACEFUL... THE HEART OF MAINE IS HERE!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a Find!!! I feel like I have been looking for just this kind of place for years... If you love Maine, and want to be able to commune with the ocean, enjoy the peace and quiet of a rustic but cozy, little cabin, this is a place for you!! I spent the weekend there with my dog - we were both in heaven the whole time. The classic rocky beach right outside your door, hear the ocean at night, watch the beautiful sunrise over the islands with your coffee, appreciate the moonlight on the ocean outside, as the woodstove heats up the cozy space inside. I cooked a few meals, had lobster on the picnic table outside the cabin with my mom on Mother's Day (she lives nearby), found the composting toilet totally doable and not an issue. I enjoyed walks on the beach with the dog, and around the neighborhood... the general store nearby is adorable, and features some local products, including wine made at a nearby winery! Rockland, which is only about ten minutes away, has great restaurants and shops. I'm looking forward to exploring more of the outdoor activities with my dog, on my next trip, which I've already booked!! This is truly a magical place. And the owners, Audrey and Rich, are absolutely lovely and kind... Maine people you can trust. And Bert, of course, their Newfoundland... Everything about this place is special. Treat yourself.

CHARMING, QUIET, RIGHT ON THE WATER, HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
You could book yourself a room at any number of generic hotels along the coast of Maine, and yes, you would see the ocean and eat lobster.....but a stay in this unique, cozy cabin just 12 feet from the high water mark is the ONLY way to really experience Maine. You feel secluded, yet you are close to restaurants, museums and lighthouses. Your hosts, Rich and Audrey, are as warm and welcoming as family, yet respectful and understanding of your space. The cabin is so sweet, and all your needs are met. I was surprised how well stocked it was, and the personal touches like home made cookies for us was appreciated. The double bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of bedding for the futon too. The sunrise between the two islands is to die for, and my daughter got a beautiful panoramic picture for me. This property was exactly what I was hoping for when I started looking, but I wasn't sure if I would find it or be able to afford it. Bingo!

AMAZING SECLUDED GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We are two college age students who were looking to get away for a weekend of relaxation and the cabin was exactly that. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking, and the cabin was perfectly cozy. We stayed at the cabin in the dead of winter and had no trouble keeping it warm. The owners, who are wonderful people, kept us stocked with wood for the weekend. They were kind enough to invite us to their home for tea, but were also very respectful of our privacy. All in all an excellent stay. We will definitely be looking to get away for another weekend sometime in the future.

A MOMENT APART

  • 5 of 5
Young couple here. Stop reading reviews, this is what you're looking for. Our weekend at this Owl's head cabin was so spectacular that we commissioned a friend to paint one of our pictures from the weekend. We are young, poor grad students but had such a phenomenal weekend that we are having a painting made to memorialize it. That's how incredible this place is.

I'd wake up every morning and make a fire in the wood stove before a morning swim. And yes, it was warm enough to swim in late October, barely. We would make a huge breakfast before setting out for a leisurely stroll on the beach or to the lighthouse or through the transportation museum. Fishing is an option in the area, although I didn't have much luck. One of the nights we made a seafood platter with lobster, mussels, clams, salmon, and shrimp. We prepared asparagus and scallops over the wood stove. Make sure you canoe over to one of the vacant islands. It's a ten minute paddle and we brought over strawberries and wine and a sharp spanish cheese. I cannot tell you how perfect this place was.

The owners are simply lovely people. They had us over to their farm house for tea and homegrown fruit. In their home we were celebrated guests but anytime we escaped to the cabin our privacy was respected. This getaway feels so secluded but is only a short drive to amenities. I hope the owners post some of the pictures we sent them from our trip!

We are two young, active students from the city who found a getaway that we would be content visiting throughout our entire lives. It was that good.

BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights over Columbus Day weekend. We drove up from the Boston area. It was a great time of year to come- we got an incredibly reasonable off season rate and saw some beautiful foliage. The cabin is absolutely unique- cozy/romantic, secluded/private, situated right on the ocean, and with a view that is to die for. We especially enjoyed watching lobster boats and sailboats passing by using the binoculars provided in the cabin. At night we stayed warm with the indoor wood stove and outdoor fire pit. We arrived with all of our food and drink, and we stopped by Jess's Seafood on the way in, as was recommended by Rich, the owner of the property. Best idea ever! Rich even recommended that we steam our lobster with seawater- which we did- and it was the best lobster we ever made! We used the lobster pot provided in the cabin along with the cloves of garlic that Rich and Audrey so generously left us! Taking the canoe out to the islands was a blast, the outdoor shower was really fun, and the composting toilet was really cool. I especially recommend a stay in this cabin for couples looking for a relaxing, fun weekend!

SECLUDED, RUSTIC, COZY AND WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in this lovely little cabin. We were looking for something that offered seclusion and comfort, and this cabin had it in spades. We are campers, and used to roughing it, but honestly the cabin was perfectly luxurious for our needs. The bed is large, soft and very comfortable. The composting toilet is surprisingly nice - no odors or anything. We used the outdoor shower up at the big house a couple times during our 4 day stay.

The cabin is furnished with a nice wood stove that kept us warm and toasty in the chilly nights. There's a fully stocked kitchen and we enjoyed making big breakfasts each morning. There are also plenty of books about the surrounding area that supply lots of ideas for day trips.

We loved the fire pit outside and spend our nights sitting around the fire watching the stars. The shore is literally feet from the front door and you have a lovely view. We bought a bunch of clams one night and cooked them on the fire pit, it was great! The cabin is very secluded - there are other houses around, but you definitely get your privacy. There was a canoe available as well as a kayak and we enjoyed paddling around in the bay. Rich also let us borrow his bikes, which was fun. The Owl's Head lighthouse is a pleasant walk away, as is the local store. And there is plenty of amazing hiking just a short drive away as well. Rich was a wonderful host - he chatted up up and was very friendly and accommodating, but also respected our privacy.

We went in August at the very tail end of the season. The weather was beautiful and the days were warm, though the water was cold and the nights were chilly (just enough to make us appreciate the wood stove!). This cabin holds a special place in my heart, and we definitely want to go back!
