Stunning home that anchors idyllic spot in Maine!

  • 5 of 5
Location:
The house sits only a few feet from one of the nicest beaches in Maine. At high tide the waves gently lap 25ft from the edge of the yard, at low tide you will find 150ft of sand and lots of room to play. The house is a few miles from the Owl’s Head lighthouse, the Owl’s Head General Store (that serves great burgers) and the Knox County Airport (KRKD), should you wish to fly rather than drive approx. 3hrs from Boston.

The town of Rockland is only 5 mi /12 min away. The town boasts many delightful restaurants and shops without feeling as touristy as Camden or Bar Harbor. We ate at Primo (fantastic for foodies, reservations required in advance), Café Mira, 3Crows and Rustica. On the north end of town we found a great grocery store (Shaw’s) and a Walmart should you forget something.

Day trips to Camden, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor provided lots to see and do.

House:
The house itself is as beautiful as the pictures. Recently constructed by a family as a private home, it is perfectly set up for two families with younger children or a family of four traveling with one set of grandparents. The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed, large bath and a private deck. There are two children’s rooms each that have built in twin beds with full sized trundles (a feat accomplished because of the slope of the roof). There is an office with a pull out couch. They share a bath at that end of the hall. Downstairs, with a fair amount of privacy is another queen bedded room with its own bath.

The house has many porches, interesting nooks and places to hang out and read or watch all the boats go by. The kitchen is fully furnished and there is a grill for use as well. The house comes equipped with 4 kayaks and lots of beach toys and games. We played nightly badminton matches on the back lawn.

Final thoughts:
For those considering a trip to Maine, I don’t think you will find a better place to call home for a week. The owners could not have been any nicer to work with or more accommodating and their home is one of the nicest we have ever had the opportunity to borrow for a week.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
I've been a frequent traveler to Maine and have stayed at numerous homes, but this one was by far the best. The location is perfect - steps out the back door to one of the few sandy beaches in this part of Maine. It's at the end of a road so there are no problems with noise or traffic, yet it's only a quick 10 minute drive to Rockport and then Camden up the road. The house itself is filled with everything you need or could want on a vacation. It's obvious the owner thought of what he would want in a vacation home and then made it available to you. There really wasn't a downside to this home at all.
