Find a peaceful escape here...

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were very gracious and most accommodating and this rental was an easy transaction, with no fuss. This peaceful cottage has everything you need - just bring your clothes and move right in! We never rented a place so generous with towels! The view of the bay was the best feature, with seals, schooners, ferry boats and the lighthouse clearly visible. The kitchen was very well equipped, but the Rockland area abounds with excellent dining opportunities, so cooking is not necessary. We did not use the washer, but we did avail ourselves of the "Maine clothes dryer" (an outdoor clothesline). The bathroom shower was a tad too small, but all the other positive features far outweighed that minor inconvenience. I have a walking disability, and was able to manage this rental just fine.

Great Cabin With An Even Better View!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great place to spend a quiet week exploring the mid-coast area of Maine. It provided all that my wife and I needed to serve as base camp for our stay, from linens to lobster pots, it was all there. The view of Penobscot Bay and Owls Head was incredible! Coupled with the ability to dine outside each evening while watching the ships go by in the harbor; priceless. The nearby attractions kept us plenty busy and we got to see many of the nearby quant villages and shops. Great for that romantic escape to quintessential Maine!

Quiet and peaceful, yet near everything

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed here for a week, and it is exactly as described. The views are incredible, and the location is very peaceful. You are at the end of a dead-end street, so there is little to no traffic. You can sit on the deck and watch the birds and boats go by. You are close to a main road (you'd never know it, though) and can easily drive to any of the nearby towns to sightsee and explore.

I would personally find it a little tight for 3 people (better if 2 are willing to share the double bed in the bedroom) but for 2 it is perfect. The hot water tank is pretty small, so be prepared to take a "sailor's shower". The wireless connectivity is spotty, so don't go here thinking you'll get a lot of work done. The idea is to relax!

You are about 2.5 miles from downtown Rockland, which is a lovely area to explore and shop. There is a farmer's market in the summer that is a great place to grab local produce and baked goods. The Owl's Head General Store is an excellent place to grab lunch. There are numerous places to go get lobster and other seafood - do it! It's all fresh and fabulous, especially the lobster.

If you like lighthouses, you have 2 you can see from the property - the Owl's Head Light, and the Rockland Breakwater Light. Both are a short drive away, and the Rockland light in particular is a great walk. I also recommend a visit to the Marshall's Point Light, which is on the peninsula near Port Clyde. Lovely views from here.

The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was lovely and kind. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend! We hope to come back.
