Lovely cottage - A Step Back in Time!
Lovely cottage - A Step Back in Time!
My Sister and I just returned from a week in this lovely home in Owl's Head Maine. A very special spot, so quiet, on the water with the sound of waves on the rocks - perfect sleeping! The house is very, very comfortable - so tidy and clean with a modern kitchen and very comfortable beds. Beautiful gardens, porch and deck of the bedroom facing the ocean. Just perfect. The special Owl's Head General Store was our favorite spot providing the most delicious Breakfast, Lunch and Dinners! Crescent Beach - only residents of the neighborhood - quiet and unspoiled. Hope to return in the Fall, Katy Gibbs & Ramona Rowe
