About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This custom-built, family-owned house has been meticulously maintained since the 1970's for use by both the owners and vacation renters. Most of the windows and the spacious deck look out upon peaceful Penobscot Bay. The house is on a dead-end private street with very little traffic, surrounded by trees, flowers, nature and quiet. The coastline is rugged and rocky, the beautiful rocky shore for which Maine is famous. This is a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the tourist destinations of Coastal Route 1.

Yet, renters will find themselves only 10 minutes away from some of the best activities and sights Maine has to offer. The busy and quaint destinations of Rockland and Camden are only 10-30 minutes away. Owls Head Light, Birch Point State Park, The Farnsworth Museum, Camden Hills State Park, and many more classic Maine destinations are a short distance just down the road. Rockland boasts great restaurants, cafes, and shops. The Penobscot Bay is great for sea kayaking, sailing, boating, and swimming. There is a boat ramp less than 10 minutes away. Owls Head is a great destination for bicycling and beachcombing/shelling. Community tennis courts are only a 5 minute drive away. There is something for everyone!

The house has all the benefits of home, from the fully-equipped kitchen to offering pots for cooking your lobster feast - and cozy beds for all the youngsters. The living room is equipped with cable TV and wireless internet. On a cool fall evening, you will be treated to blazing foliage. In winter, you can cross country ski out the front door. No matter what time of year you visit or what you like to enjoy, you will feel right at home here!

More photos (kitchen, living room, etc.) are available upon request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: Steven is one of several family members who manage a family trust for this unique property. The property, which includes 2 homes, has been in their family since the 1940's, and the family feels a strong sense of stewardship. The family rents the newer house (built in the late 1970's) to help pay for the maintenance costs of the total property. They hope renters will show the kind of respect for the property and the landscape that their Grandparents taught them as children.

Why the Owner Chose Owls Head, ME, USA:
Our family has been spending summers on Owls Head since the 1940's. The houses on this property are part of our family heritage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I most enjoy hearing the waves from my bedroom and skipping rocks from the beach. I love building a fire on the rocks and cooking clams in salt water. I love walking by rocks to the Birch Point State Park beach and back, and riding my bicycle with my kids to the Owls Head General Store for lunch.
