Overview

About the property

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.

Bright and airy

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was bright, airy and roomy. The kitchen had everything we needed and the fridge was stocked with a few starter items which were appreciated. Our hosts, Rich and Audrey, were very hospitable, offering suggestions on lesser known sites to see and places to eat. Our dinner at McLoon's was a highlight. Even after we left, Audrey was nice enough to send a picture of an Owls Head sign that I had requested. Thanks guys. Wish we could have stayed longer but so happy we stumbled upon you.

peaceful retreat, cozy accommodations and a warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We find it hard to get away with a dog and a baby ( 10 months) and this was perfect. Audrey and Rich are kind and accommodating and live in a little slice of heaven. The apartment is private, spacious, clean and cozy. We were thrilled to see there was a separate bedroom and living area so that we could put the baby to bed and play a hand of cards and have a drink before turning in ourselves. The property is picturesque Maine perfection with a beautiful yard for the dog and baby to explore within walking distance to multiple beaches. We took all of Audrey and Rich's suggestions for dining and activities; visiting Birch Point Beach, walking to Owls Head Lighthouse, and eating at some of the local hotspots. We cant wait to visit again and hope that we can stay longer next time!
