Owl's Head house description

Located on one of the very few sandy beaches in Mid-Coast, The Cottage is architect-designed, custom construction, professionally landscaped, and filled with everything you'd need for a perfect family vacation.

Down East Magazine called it 'Stunning.' (You can find the article here: http://bit.ly/1dSXWAU)

The Cottage is uniquely designed with an open floor plan and beautiful ocean views from every room. Upstairs is the master bedroom and connected deck, two kid's bedrooms, kids' bath, and full office. Downstairs is the screened-in porch, family room, dining room, kitchen, and off to the side, a 'grandparents' room or fourth bedroom with its own full bath. Outside there are two large porches perfect for sitting and watching the ocean. Directly off the porch is an outdoor shower.

The Cottage also has a separate two car garage that has everything you'd need for a fun vacation. Feel free to use the '14 Jeep Sahara, bikes, kayaks, beach chairs, baseball gloves, lacrosse sticks, horse shoes, etc.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Owl's Head is located just south of Rockland / Rockport / Camden - the heart of Maine's mid-coast. There are great restaurants, art galleries, museums, festivales, etc. We encourage you to take in as much of the region as you can.

                      Please know that the house is a short bike ride or cab ride (~2 miles) from Knox County airport. Cape Air offers regular flights from NY, Boston and other cities / towns throughout the region.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: We have been coming to Maine since the late 90's. In 2002, we found an old shack on a beautiful beach and decided to take the plunge. In 2005, we tore it down and built our summer home where we spend the summers with family and friends. We live full time at the house during the summer and rent only occasionally.

                      Why the Owner Chose Owl's Head:
                      Vacation in a box - incredible surroundings, all the toys, fresh lobster off the docks, and an incredible town with wonderful festivals (Lobster, Blues, Boat Show, etc.), incredible museums (Farnsworth, Lighthouse, Transportation, etc.), and fantastic restaurants (too many to mention). What more could you want!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This is a family house. Kids can play on the beach, parents can relax on the deck, and everyone can enjoy the best that Maine has to offer.
