About the property

3 bedrooms plus cot or crib room, 2 baths, sleeps 6 adults and a small child

A comfortable home located directly on the water with a semi-private beach of small rocks. Excellent for sun bathing, swimming, or hunting for crabs and starfish under the rocks at low tide. From your front lawn you'll have an unsurpassed view of the daily parade of lobster boats, sailing yachts and windjammers passing in review. Only ten minutes from downtown Rockland and the Farnsworth Museum and Homestead. Fresh lobsters and fish can be purchased at Owls Head Harbor, two miles away.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented a cottage from the Flints when I was a child. I have revived this vacation with my own family. The Holiday Beach House is wonderful, quiet and literally RIGHT ON the ocean. Great fireplace, views and charming hosts make it a not-to-miss vacation. I dream all year of our annual 2 weeks in Maine and would recommend renting this house or the other 2 cottages next door from Bill and Louise Flint.

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week in this great house in July 2009. This was our first trip to Maine and it will definitely not be our last. Hopefully we will be able stay in this same house again.

The house has a very comfortable homey feel. The night sky is magnificent and the sound of the waves hitting the beach easily put us to sleep. The beach is perfect for looking for shells and sea glass. It is close enough to Rockland and Camden to get a quick meal, but far enough away to avoid the other tourists.
