About Doug & Leah Johnson
The family photo above is from a sunset cruise in Rockland Harbor, on the windjammer 'A Morning in Maine'. My wife and I are both high school art teachers in Massachusetts. We love fixing up old houses and especially love Owls Head Maine!
Doug & Leah Johnson purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Doug & Leah Johnson chose Owls Head
The cottage has a lot of charm and character, decorated with artwork, antiques and treasures found on the beach. We are collectors of everything, specializing on finding heart shaped rocks, driftwood and sea glass found on various beaches close to the Post Office.
What makes this Apartment unique
2, two person kayaks are available to use with this rental. You can dolly them down the hill and launch them next to the Lobster Wharf. Cruise through Owls Head Bay and 5 minutes out to the left is the Owls Head Lighthouse. 10-15 minutes out to the right are two deserted islands to visit and explore. Our favorite is Sheep's Island, which has an expansive sandy beach, which is easy to land on. If your lucky, you will have the entire island to yourselves. The views back to the Camden Hills is to die for!

First time in Maine was wonderful
This was our first trip to Maine from New York. We spent 3 nights here and loved every second. The owner made it welcoming and comforting. We felt right at home. It was very exciting walking in and seeing a place so different from anything we have stayed at before. We will be back for sure!
Thanks so much Bob, it was a real pleasure getting to know you. Hope you guys return someday!
The property was in a great location and made accessing all Mid-Coast Maine has to offer easy! It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. We were two couples (us and my parents) and the open layout was a little concerning (no doors on bedrooms) but in the end it worked out fine. There are a lot of steps which didn't bother us but could be difficult for really young or older guests. The bed in the loft upstairs is a bit of a challenged to get into and out of because of the steep roof but we adjusted and it wasn't a huge problem. The bathroom is very spacious with enough hot water for all 4 of us to shower in the morning - also good water pressure in the shower. There was a nice gas grill and the deck was a perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine. We loved our stay and would consider it again when travelling to the area!!
Night at the museum
This place is as advertised and more. It is like waking up every morning in a different art gallery. There is so much going on in this space that every day you notice something different. It’s easy to notice effort to make this place something off the beaten path. This listing is the very definition of eclectic. A bonus to everything going on inside is the spectacular garden/ yard outside. If you are looking for a place to have a small wedding you may want to check this Garden space out. It was hard at time to get my granddaughter to come down from the her copula bedroom. The only problem I have now is that she now wants her Grampy to build her one. If your different look no further. Thanks Doug.
WOW! What a wonderful place!!
Amazing landscaping, flower gardens, very unique. Working post office on main level...3 levels of living up above, including the cool cupola added by the owner. Truly in a class of its own. The themed approach (Owls Head, Nautical, USPS), very tastefully done by the owners. We were wowed!! It's unusual that the reality is better than the pictures, but in this case it was far better than anticipated. We wish we had more than 2 nights to enjoy the grounds and star gazing from the deck off the well stocked kitchen! We hope to come back and stay longer to enjoy Owls Head and the Rockland area. Doug was so easy to work with. Highly recommend!!
Tom, It was such a pleasure to host you guys. Thanks for your kind words. This place has been a labor of love. Hope you return someday. Cheers. Doug
Perfect Artistic Getaway
We had a wonderful week. The space is just beautiful. Magnificent gardens and the harbor just down the road provided ample opportunities for creating art- watercolor and photography. Lovely area to walk too, and close to Rockland and Camden. The hosts were wonderful too. We loved every minute!
Patricia, Thanks so much for your kind words. Hope you had plenty of time to make some art! Best regards, Doug
