Owls Head Studio Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom plus studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Situated on a bluff on a quiet road very close to the ocean and surrounded by acres of woodland our studio apartment is the perfect base for a restorative sea side holiday. Perfect for walking and biking and close to water access for kayaking or swimming. It takes just 10 minutes to get from the peace of the peninsula to downtown Rockland with its many amenities.

The town of Owls Head has a thriving general store that provides breakfast/lunch and occasional dinners and can be walked to from our property. The general store also has basic supplies that you might need. The lighthouse is also a longer walk away from the studio. The road we are on is quiet and is a favorite walking and biking road (we have some bikes you can use). Crescent beach is also a pleasant walk away. Owls Head library is open twice a week in summer and has a very good selection of books.

The Knox county region airport is about 2 miles away and flights go to and from Boston daily. This is a small airport and we do not feel its impact on our tranquil way of life! A car can be rented at the airport. The Owls Head Transportation museum is also near the airport and holds much interest to aviation and old car enthusiasts.

Quiet, tranquil, spacious, well equiped AND great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This is in a quiet neck of the woods near beaches and water. Very quiet, yet not too far from Rocklands.

Easy access to beaches and water. Hosts will do everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

There are a couple of bicycles as well as a kayak and canoe. The beach and water are magical. (At least in summer). The apartment is spacious and well equiped and very relaxing.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Farmhouse apartment! Rich and Audrey were wonderful, sweet, helpful and a pleasure to get to know. The apartment is cozy and sunny with a lovely porch, surrounded by greenery and apple trees. The area is beautiful, close to the water which has a spectacular view. We were close to hiking, the beach, Rockland center. Lots to do but we also enjoyed staying in and enjoying some much needed quiet time away. We couldn't recommend this place more and hope to be back off season!

This is one of the nicest places that we have rented! Audrey and Rich are very accommodating, the apartment is adorable, and is immaculate! The view is beautiful! My husband, 2 dogs and I felt completely at home here. It is within driving distance of Acadia (with the ability to avoid the crowds), close to Rockland, 3 local lighthouses, Owl's Head Transportation Museum, and lots of available places to walk. Love it, love it, love it! We do hope to return to this great rental! Thank you Audrey and Rich for a great 3 days!!

Comfortable quiet retreat just minutes from busy Rockland

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is more spacious that the photos suggest and we loved the location. Beautiful views from the living room window. Our dog especially loved running around the spacious property.

The apartment is well equipped and absolutely immaculate. WIFI a big plus. Rich and Audrey were gracious hosts and the apartment is very private. Best of all, we were minutes away from great hikes, kayaking beaches and interesting museums. The best of both worlds.

Lovely Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Audrey and Rich for two nights in the beginning of August with our one year old son. They were so kind and personable and made us feel very welcome. We were lucky enough to share a beautiful evening filled with great conversation, a raging campfire and delicious Maine sorbet. Rich was super helpful with local attractions and landmarks which we would have not experienced otherwise. The apartment was clean and perfect for our little family. If you want a beautiful Maine experience filled with awesome views, plenty to do and to meet other amazing people of the world then visit the Farmhouse!
