About the property

3 bedrooms each w/ water view, 1 full bath, 1/2 bath, Sleeps 5, waterfront house

A classic, charming, private water's edge house with rare and spectacular wide open views of the ocean, near & distant islands & easy access to a private beach. Ideally located on the point, the recently renovated sun filled house sits privately amidst green lawns on a rise just 20’ from the water's edge. A quiet, larger rare property boasts wraparound water frontage along a curving shore and beach. Marvel at the ever-changing seascape while you enjoy your morning coffee, dine al fresco, warm yourself in the sun or take a nap in the shade of towering spruce trees. Relax in Adirondack chairs & watch the parade of boats sail by. Enjoy quiet privacy. Swim at the beach at the house, clamber down the rocks to venture across the sand at low tide, search for beach glass & explore Treasure Island. Stroll down the road to Crescent Beach. This sunny year-round Maine house is fresh, clean & comfortable with breathtaking views inside & out. The living room with wrap windows affords plenty of comfortable seating. Each bedroom has water views, comfortable beds & fresh cotton linens.

Perfect for an unforgettable vacation

Occupying a rare private position on the shore unobstructed by trees that are plentiful elsewhere, this hard-to-find property boasts panoramic views of the open ocean, Muscle Ridge Channel and the islands that dot the coast all the way into the distance. From around the point to the left you can see all sorts of boats traveling up and down the coast from kayaks to schooners and then watch them recede into the far distance.

Treasure View Beach House is a classic and comfortable year-round Maine house with breathtaking views from sunrise to sunset. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living room where wrap windows to the south, east and west bring in the drama of the oceanfront setting. Here it is always amazing how the colors and the light are forever changing. The intensity of the sunsets are indescribable. Use the binoculars or the telescope to watch the lobster boats, the tall ships, the eagles and ospreys and the seals.

Each bedroom has water views, comfortable beds and cotton linens. The proximity to the water brings the soft and soothing sound of gentle waves and cooling breezes even on the hottest days of summer. It is possible to have the best sleep here.

The fully equipped and well lit kitchen and the dining room with breakfast bar accommodate cooking and gathering while being convenient to the deck for grilling and outdoor dining.

For stay at home entertainment there are 2 televisions, wireless broadband, stereo, DVD and VCR players and lots of games, puzzles and books. Outdoors you can play croquet or badminton on the lawn, relax on the Adirondack chairs or enjoy a shady retreat on one of the decks 10' from the water's edge.

Walk to Crescent beach or climb down the rocks to enjoy the beach at the house. Launch your kayak to explore the shoreline. Bike, walk or drive 1.5 miles to the Owl's Head Light house for amazing panoramic views.

An abundance of outdoor seating is provided for friends and family to sit and relax and take in the view. In the water close by is a boulder, called a glacial erratic, that re-appears sitting on the sand when the tide goes out, dividing an arc of long low waves. Small rocky Treasure Island is a gem connected to the beach only at low tide, with its little protected cove, its stand of spruces and an ancient lobsterman’s shack. This is the evocative shorescape view which can be recognized in numerous 19th c. paintings of the Maine coast. All photos in this listing were taken from our house or from the lawns. They are the best views and best light in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is hard to put our experience at your amazing house into words, but I'll try... Magical, amazing, awe inspiring... Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of water and the gulls will be sorely missed.

Walking around Rockland, Camden, Boothbay and Port Clyde was a joy. Our 8 year old loved the Puffin Center and the whale watch and just exploring the tide. We bought our daughter a fishing rod which she used quite a lot.

Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. Your house is a treasure!

Lovely home situated in a perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most delightful week at this charming home in Owls Head! The house was so clean and comfortable, and the location cannot be beat! AMAZING! We were able to watch lobster boats, explore Treasure Island and the beach, and drive into nearby Rockland for delicious meals! It was perfect...the escape and relaxation of a quiet beach home within minutes of a fun, energetic town filled with restaurants, galleries and boutiques! What a gem! Thank you!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our weeklong stay in Owl's Head. Our children loved exploring Treasure Island at low tide and filled an entire jar with beautiful sea glass. The home was extremely comfortable and clean and allowed us to be close to the phenomenal Owl's Head Transportation Museum where we were exhibitors. We appreciated the helpful restaurant tips and ate at the Rockland Diner often!

Unbeatable views, charming home, unforgettable sta

  • 5 of 5

Charming house, fully equipped, very comfortable, wonderfully located for touring, hiking and sightseeing the stunning area of Main Midcoast. The views of the ocean from the back garden are amazing and sitting by the water watching the tide and the enchanting "treasure island" opposite is very special. We loved every minute, recommend it wholeheartedly and would love to come back!

Idyllic spot and lovely cottage with caring owners

  • 5 of 5

Classic Maine coastal life doesn't get any better than this! We have returned to this magical home time and again for over four years. The lovely cottage is extremely comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owners are gracious and go out of their way to ensure everything is in place for an unforgettable experience. Some of the nearby attractions include museums, galleries, state parks, beaches, restaurants, and light houses. But I often find it difficult to leave the private-feeling property; gorgeous views of sunrise and sunset, lobster boats, schooners and sailboats, sea birds and the changing tide are all magnetic and mesmerizing The beach that emerges at mid-tide is a wonderful place to walk and to find sea glass. I would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a vacation on the coast of Maine.

September Vacation with Friends

  • 5 of 5

I have just spent a most wonderful week in this lovely Home. The house was clean, bright, and just right for our needs. We love to cook and found the kitchen very well equipped for our needs. The views are fabulous and ever changing. The beach was great to walk along and find treasures in the sand. It was in a great location to do site seeing or just to sit and relax. I would be happy to come back here again.

Private beach is at the house & Crescent Beach
Car: necessary

Treasure View Beach House is a timeless perfect getaway. An unforgettable vacation can be had without ever leaving the

property. There is a beautiful private beach. It is a unique combination with the absolute best views and big lawns. Crescent Beach is a short walk or bike ride away as is the famous OH Lighthouse and blueberry muffins and 'best burgers in Maine' at the General Store. Also 2 minutes away are fresh lobsters.

While being a world away, you are still conveniently only 5 minutes to shopping, cafe's, restaurants, boutiques, museums & galleries. A great place from which to explore the beauty of Maine. Or as many guests have said, nothing beats luxuriating in the peace and quiet of this most beautiful spot. An ideal combination of what Maine is world famous for.

Other Activities: At the house are lawn games and sand toys. At the windows are a telescope for star gazing and binoculars for boat watching.

From the house there is endless exploring of tidal pools, a huge expanse of beach and a walk to Treasure Island at low tide.

In nearby Rockland, Rockport and Camden are great restaurants, cafes, shops, bookstores, museums, galleries, farmers markets and supermarkets. Hiking, kayaking, bicycling, sailing and touring and the world class scenery of this best part of mid-coast Maine are easily accessible. Nearby are ferries to local islands,tennis, golf, sailing, windjammer cruises, glider rides, harbor tours, and a fully equipped fitness center.

Springtime offers lilacs and gardens in bloom against the backdrop of sparkling blue waters. The colors of Autumn when the ocean is still warm, is for many a favorite time to be in Maine. From this comfortable year round house it is easy to enjoy the bright sunshine and brilliant colors of the water.

Ski: Winter is beautiful on the water in Maine. This year round house is cozy and warm in winter. Walks along the beach are still beautiful and with restaurants, shops and galleries conveniently located a short drive away in the historic towns of Rockland and Camden there is still plenty to explore.

Skiing at The Camden Snow Bowl, about 20 minutes drive. A community owned ski and recreation area that is fun for the whole family. From the summit of 1300' Ragged Mountain skiers have an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to alpine skiing and snowboarding, there are many other winter activities available at the Snow Bowl. A snow tubing slope provides fun for all family members, ice skating on Hosmer pond and there is a thrilling 400' toboggan chute.
