Away from it all (but not too far away)

This lovely cabin is located in Owls Head, a peninsula just south of Rockland, Rockport and Camden. There is a very nice feeling of privacy there but you are no more than 15-20 minutes away from all the amenities you could ask for. The view is incredible, from both the huge living room window and the deck, and the sunsets are gorgeous. What a beautiful way to wake up each morning. The cabin is clean, rustic, spacious and well equipped and the king bed is very comfortable. It's a perfect spot for a couple. We enjoyed kayaking right in front of the house and around to the beautiful Owls Head Lighthouse (kayaks can be easily rented and delivered right to the cabin). We hiked on the magnificent and remote Monhegan Island, a highly recommended day trip, and golfed at beautiful nearby Samoset Resort. We cooked at home half the time (kitchen is well stocked but you might want to bring a good chef's knife) and ate out the rest. Many good restaurants in the area, including the delectable Primo, right down the road. No worry if you can't get reservations, Primo has tables and a bar upstairs where you don't need them. Get fresh lobsters from the dockside just past the Owls Head Light or at Jess's market where they are equally fresh (don't miss the seafood chowder at Jess's if they have it.) Rockland and Camden are both lovely towns to wander around in and find your favorite eating and shopping spots.
Overall a terrific location and very comfortable accommodations for a very reasonable rate. We would definitely come back here again.

This review is LONG overdue. My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and it was perfect. While it is only a one bedroom, it is big, so there is plenty of space to relax in. One of the first things we said after arriving was that the photos listed do not do this place justice. The amenities are great - nice, big bedroom with a king size bed, large living room, kitchen with all the basics and a picnic table. Clean. The cottage is private and quiet. The views are fantastic - right on the water, and the location is just what we were hoping for. We rented bikes for the week and rode back and forth into Rockland.

I would agree with the previous reviewer. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton, this isn't it. But this has a really great energy . The kind of place you look forward to returning to after a long day exploring, or just enjoying the patio and bayside air.

Jim (the owner) was great. Responsive through the booking process and checked in on us via email to make sure we had everything we needed.

We would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away and enjoy a quiet, relaxing vacation. It's now been six months since our stay and we still talk about it. We will definitely book again the next time we can make it out that way.

Thanks for a wonderful honeymoon!

We had a great week at this bayside cottage. My wife and I both thought it had "great energy," as we always felt good about coming back to it after a day trip, or just enjoying the deck, lawn, or pebble beach if we didn't go anywhere. Plenty of sea glass, etc. to be had at low tide! Two days out of the seven we were treated to regattas just off Owl's Head and inside the breakwater at Rockland, one for smaller single-masted boats, one for schooners.

The house itself probably won't do for someone who requires fancy finish and all kinds of amenities and doodads, but we didn't really want for anything, and it is certainly clean, comfortable, and almost constantly cooled by prevailing breezes. The king bed was really comfortable, there's plenty of light, and sufficient room for two people (even a couple of visitors).

The location is also a plus, just minutes from Rockland, a half hour or so to Port Clyde, and an hour to Boothbay. So just about everything on the midcoast is within relatively easy reach.

Thanks for making a great week possible!
Owner's Response: Thank you Bill for the great review. I agree it does have great energy and we love taking time off and come and staying there as well. We are coming up in 2 weeks.

Thanks again,

Jim Robinson
