|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Come relax on the deck, or my favorite spot, inside with my feet up on the window sill. Watch the sun come up. Then it's lobster boats, kayaks, canoes and sail boats. Bald eagles, ospreys, ducks, loons and gulls fishing. If you are alert you will see red squirrels, crows, deer and perhaps a fox or a seal. You can watch the tides change. Go down on the shore and look for crabs or beach glass. Take a walk or lie in the hammock. You can watch the islands turn red as the sun sets behind the cottage and then you can watch the moon come up and the stars come out. If you can't sit still that long there is so much to do in and around Owls Head. There is a beautiful light house. Stop at the Owls Head General Store for lunch or take it with you for a picnic. Go to the Transportation Museum for the special events or just the regular displays. Shop and eat out in Rockland, Camden, Thomaston or Port Clyde. Go to the Farnsworth Museum or any of the art galeries. This is a great spot for a vacation.
Very homey little cottage with absolutely wonderful view of the bay! Loved morning coffee and evening drinks and meals on the deck. Private, quiet place to read and relax. Easy access to Rockland, Camden and all the coast has to offer. We were two couples vacationing together and we thoroughly enjoyed the campfire and watching the night sky, the deck and comfortable chairs as we watched the wildlife and sailboats on the bay. We would certainly come again.
My husband and I will be arriving this summer for our fourth stay at the Little Cottage. The view is spectacular, the cottage has everything you need, and nearby restaurants are the best! We have enjoyed the Puffin Cruise from Little Harbor, the Farnsworth Museum, the Transportation Museum, the Owl's Head General Store, a lovely walk from Rockport to Camden (then lunch at Cappy's), and kayaking. Evelyn is the perfect hostess, and we hope to keep coming back for many years in the future! Jane and Frank Shields, Rocky Mount, North Carolina
The view of Penobscot Bay is gorgeous and the cottage immaculate, comfortable and completely equipped. During 1 week stay in 8/09 we had every weather but snow and were perfectly comfortable. Sea breezes on the deck countered the humid 80s and a cozy fire (lots of wood provided) took away the chill of rainy 50s. (There's also heat but we were enjoying roughing it). Easy driving distance to all mid coast has to offer esp. Camden, Rockland and Rockport museums, galleries, seafood and sailing. Lots of very bikable roads. Evelyn is a perfect host. We hope to go back. Highly recommended!!
