About Steve Moseley or Whitney Ross

We're a family with two children (a 16 year old boy and a 12 year old girl) that grew up feasting on blackberries that flourish on the property and lobsters collected from clean water off our beach. We also enjoy boating, swimming, and fishing in the Penobscot Bay. Hiking, exploring, and enjoying other local resources rounds out our time in Maine. And although our family has been in Maine for 6 generations we're not yet able to live here full time.

Steve Moseley or Whitney Ross purchased this house in 2005

Spacious house with great views and location

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at here for Maine Lobster festival week, and we had a fantastic stay. The house is really spacious, and the upstairs is really well appointed with great bathrooms. We had tons of fun with the kids exploring the grounds, picking raspberries in the backyard, playing on the beach, and using the provided kayaks to explore Rockland Harbor. The views from the house were lovely, and the location was great. The house is just minutes from lighthouses, beaches, Owls Head airport, Rockland, and an award-winning restaurant (Primo--it's a must visit). We had a wonderful stay and we hope to return!

Very true to the title. Absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were very happy with home. For 6 adults it was perfect. Each couple had their own bedroom and private bath which is a very important factor when we rent homes together. All the bathrooms have been recently updated and the home itself was very clean.

The home is situated so that you don't have to drive far to get to local attractions.

We would definitely rent this house again when we return to Owls Head.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this wonderful house to celebrate a milestone birthday. We had a great time! The house is spacious with plenty of room for our extended family. We loved having dinner on the screened porch in the evening overlooking the water. My grandchildren had great fun flying kites on the huge lawn! We all really enjoyed the kayaks that the owner had on the property. The house is located close enough to Rockland and Camden for a quick car ride to some great restaurants and shopping. The owner answered all our questions and was very helpful! Rosie was the best! Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, conveniently located near Rockland and Camden. The home is beautifully - but comfortably - furnished and decorated. We were 2 adults and 4 teenagers, and found the home spacious enough to have separation, but also plenty of family time. The screened porch makes for lovely meals and beautiful views of the beach and harbor at the foot of the property. We spent time exploring the beaches and both towns, hiking, taking the ferry to nearby Vinyl Haven and eating lots of seafood. We had a wonderful week's vacation and recommend it highly!

Prettiest spot in the area!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect home and location-the house was spotless and spacious, the views magnificent and the private location perfect for everything we wanted to do. We've been going to this part of coastal Maine for over 60 years and this was by far the best place we have had the good fortune to stay in! We were there in August during the Seafood Festival so there was lots to do, but we did trips to nearby Camden and Rockport, a day trip to Bar Harbor and had a wonderful lunch one day at the Samoset Hotel in Rockport. Our first cup of coffee every morning in the back of the house at the top of the lawns sweeping down to the water, watching the early morning fog melt away across the harbour was a wonderful way to start each day! We can't wait to go again!

MID-COAST, MAINE: The scenic bays, craggy peninsulas and sparkling offshore islands form a stunning backdrop to Mid-Coast Maine’s picture-perfect fishing villages, seaside resorts and bustling harbor towns. Delve deeply into Maine’s maritime past, watch whales and puffins, explore by bike or sea kayak and dine on world-class seafood. In the Midcoast region, arts and culture flourish amidst the legacy of the sea.

ROCKLAND (1 mile from house): Rockland’s lively arts and culture scene includes the world-class collections at the Farnsworth Art Museum and the Wyeth Center. Stop by the Puffin Project Visitor Center and Maine Lighthouse Museum. Ferry out to Vinalhaven, North Haven or Matinicus. Discover award-winning restaurants. Browse bookstores in Rockland or fill up on lobster rolls at the annual Maine Lobster Festival. Bike the St. George peninsula or explore the harbors by kayak and the islands by boat.

CAMDEN (10 miles): Camden is a classic harbor town, a short drive north of Owls Head, characterized by quaint inns and B&Bs and framed by the magnificent Camden Hills. Hike or drive up Mt. Battie and then relax in a harbor-side pub overlooking windjammers and fishing boats. Make a side trip to the charming arts community of Rockport.

OWLS HEAD: The Village of Owls Head has a compelling charm that should be described in part by what's NOT there (no traffic lights, no traffic, no crowds) and in part by what IS there (Maine's best cheeseburgers at the Owls Head General Store, 2 wineries, 3 lighthouses, Owls Head Light State Park, Birch Point Beach State Park, etc.) and miles of beaches and wooded trails to explore.

THIS HOUSE: This unique, rolling, grassy 7 acre property sits next to a nature preserve overlooking Rockland harbor and has productive apple trees, rasberries, blueberries, and blackberries in season. There is plenty to do nearby but visitors often get so comfortable they lose interest in exploring beyond the edges of this family property.

We hope that happens to you.
