Property description

Sunrise Cottage on Mahalas Lane

Located in Owls Head, this quaint and unique 1930s cottage is nestled at the end of a private lane. A guest of the cottage, the author, Marianne Cushing, has had published (December 2013) her debut novel, Mahalas Lane (the lane of the cottage), which uses the cottage as a point of reference for her investigation-romance work of art. Overlooking Crocketts Beach and Penobscot Bay, Mahalas Lane is serene and relaxing, a true seaside get-away.

Crocketts Beach, when the tide is out a bit, is a perfectly sandy beach all the way out into the water. Children, less fragile than adults, do not seem to mind at all the refreshing aspects of the Maine water, and enjoy the swimming without having to negotiate bothersome rocks with their feet. (Adults seem to appreciate this pleasing aspect as well.)

Crocketts Beach is especially well-suited for kayaking and provides for a nice ability to explore, by kayak, Seaglass Island (a very small island about 1/4 mile off the beach which you can almost walk to at low tide), nearby Crescent Beach and Sheep's Island. There are really only about three other cottages-homes on Crocketts Beach, so the beach is rather private and unique in that sense as well.

The cottage is architecturally unique, reminiscent of a ship with a bowed front, with pristine white ship-lap throughout and a built-in bed.

A split-rail fence contains the ample yard and natural gardens surround the house. It is a pleasing space any time of the day; sit on the patio for morning coffee and watch the sunrise over the ocean or stroll down to the ocean-front beach house for an afternoon of reading.

The main house and beach house sleep 8 in five bedrooms. The master is on the first floor with a king bed, an ocean view and an adjoining bath.

The well-equipped kitchen has spectacular views of the water and opens into the living room and dining room areas, both with ocean views. Plenty of windows offer natural light and light sea breezes.

There are three bedrooms upstairs and one full bath. The first bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has a queen bed and one twin built-in bed. Both have views of the water and comfortable furnishings.

The third upstairs bedroom, a master bedroom, has a private bath and one king bed with an ocean view.

There is also a beach cottage on the property, located at the water’s edge. The guest cottage offers sleeping space for two on a queen bed, as well as a slipcovered love seat, two slipcovered sitting chairs, an under-counter refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster oven, a countertop water dispenser and a spacious deck. This is the perfect place to sit and watch the day come to an end.

The location of Mahalas Lane is ideal. Owls Head is home of the Transportation Museum, the Owls Head General Store (home of the award-winning Loaded 7-Napkin Burger and old-time penny candy) and the Owls Head Lighthouse where Spot, the Springer spaniel, is buried by the lighthouse bell (see the true story of Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue).

Owls Head is a small, quiet community just minutes from Rockland (the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Primo Restaurant, In Good Company wine bar, Fiore premium Artisan Olive Oils and Vinegars, Planet Toys and Jess's Market for lobsters and fresh seafood - Down East Magazine's readers' choice for best seafood market in Maine).

Thomaston, Rockport and Camden are also nearby. Rockport is the setting for the Samoset Resort (the well-appointed La Bella Vita restaurant with a magnificent view of Penobscot Bay, the tranquil, fresh, clean, seaside aesthetic of The Spa and a beautiful seaside, championship golf course) and Maine Sport Outfitters (offering for purchase or rental items for almost any conceivable sporting interest ranging from kayaking, biking and running to camping and winter sports).

These larger cities offer museums, restaurants, shopping, festivals and endless cultural activities. Cape Air flies into (and out of) Owls Head (the Knox County Regional Airport) from Boston (a one hour flight) and other regional locations. Car rentals (Budget) can be made from the Knox County Regional Airport.

The house offers a washer and dryer, Bosch dishwasher, cable television and Internet Wi-Fi connection.
