Like going back in time when you head down the Saint George Peninsula.....Unique in its position at the end of Spruce Head - with fabulous view and ever changing location, great place to bring the family during the Spring through Fall seasons.
Quiet & Peaceful on a dead-end road, incredible views, private sandy beach.
This was my 2nd stay at the Point House. Each time I have enjoyed the comforts of the clean and welcoming cottage, the excellwnt porch overlooking Seal Cove, the easy access to mid-coast Maine's great scene -great arts, fabulouse restaurants, (and not just the lobster and pie kind!), and the absolute beauty everywhere you look. Arrangements were easy peasy.solid ihigh speed internet available when if you need/want it was a + for me.
We stayed here for a week in early July and just truly loved the cottage. It was a perfectly located spot to explore the central Maine coast - we spent time in Port Clyde, just a short drive away, going on a Puffin cruise and buying lobster right off the dock to bring back home to cook. Rockland is very close and a great spot to spend a day exploring. Lots of nice restaurants and lobster shacks all within a short drive. The locals are all very friendly and inviting. The weather was so perfect (mid 70's and sunny all day) that we spent 2 days just sitting and relaxing on the deck watching the tides and lobster boats come and go. The cottage is very quaint, cozy and had all the amenities we needed and the view is absolutely spectacular.
Our two weeks at the Point House were relaxing and refreshing. The cottage was clean and bright with the comfortable atmosphere displayed in the pictures. Plenty of room; very comfortable beds; compact well-equipped kitchen with plenty of freezer space in the refrigerator. Deck with perfect water views and easy to use gas grill. Plentiful HOT water in the shower. Close to lobster shacks and Rockland area's fantastic restaurants (Shepherds Pie, Slipway, Suzuki et al), but staying put and cooking a simple feast at the cottage was just as lovely. Daily walk in any direction led to beautiful gardens, stunning ocean views. Lobster Lane Books provided hours of pleasant browsing. Recommend this lovely spot for the adventurous as well as those seeking a lazy idyll!
Family and I really enjoyed our stay. Perfect vacation visiting family and having our four grandchildren stay with us for the week.
We have always stayed at hotels on vacation and this was our first experience renting a cottage/house. We are now sold on it! We were able to bring our dog and it was one of the best family vacations we have had! The cottage was just the way it was described. It was clean and well maintained. To our surprise, there were many supplies at the cottage for our use - non-perishable food items, spices and condiments for cooking, cleaning supplies, etc. There was also helpful information on local sights, restaurants, grocery stores, golf courses, etc. There are lots to do within a 20-40 min drive. Or, you could just laze away the day at the cottage, enjoying the water views. There are many good restaurants, and the two we highly recommend are the Waterfront in Camden and Archer's on the Pier in Rockland. The manager of the property was very responsive and helpful in answering our questions before our stay and during it. We highly recommend this place!
Mid-Coast towns & villages are quaint, with homes ranging from the stately clapboard colonial to a classic New Englander to a shingled cottage on the coast or lake.
Coastal Maine was carved by glaciers ages ago leaving an architecture of mountains running to deep ocean, and to deep clear lakes surrounded by fertile hills inland.
The harbors are filled with a mix of commercial fishing boats, Maine lobster boats (Rockland is the host of the Annual Lobster Festival) Schooners (Camden, Rockport, and Rockland berth a number of classic schooners for day trips & week long journeys,) and yachts – those with the finest pedigree are launched in Maine by the very best boat builders you will find anywhere in the world.
Maine’s seawater is cold & clean, that’s why you find the best fish and lobster here. Midcoast Maine south of Rockland is made up of fishing towns – Owls Head, Spruce Head, Tenants Harbor, Port Clyde, Cushing, and Friendship have been active fishing ports supporting their families for generations.
Outdoor recreational opportunities are almost endless in mid-coast Maine, Camden Hills State Park runs from the top of Megunticook Mountain to the bold Atlantic Ocean. There are miles of hiking and biking trails, Maine’s lakes warm up in the summer for a refreshing swim. Camden, Lincolnville, Hope, and Appleton have dozens of pristine lakes, rivers and streams for boating and fishing.
Penobscot Bay has hundreds of islands accessible by boat or ferry, the Maine Island Trail – set up for conservation and public access for kayakers and boaters. Camden, Maine has a town operated ski hill, where you can look out over the ocean when skiing on a sunny winter day.
The Camden Opera House, Rockport Opera House and the revitalized Strand Theatre in Rockland bring the area wide range of cultural & musical events, humor and political debate.
Maine is host to artists, writers, and thinkers from around the world. Rockland, Maine is the site of the world renowned Farnsworth Museum and Wyeth Center and the Maine Lighthouse Museum. Rockland’s revitalized downtown and harbor is the busy with world-class galleries, shops, and restaurants. The Camden Conference on world affairs and Pop-Tech, an international technology, science & ideas conference - both bring some of the world’s great thinkers and activists to town.
The coastal town of Owls Head is home to Knox County Regional Airport, with a regular schedule of connecting flights to Boston. The Owls Head Transportation museum holds a world class collection of reare and antique automobiles, airplanes, and trains. The Saint George peninsula and its outlying islands are also home to artists, writers, editors, business executives, and retirees from many interesting walks of life.
It is the mix of the people, the diversity of the communities, and beautiful landscape that make Midcoast Maine so special.
