About Judy and Jeff Lessard
My husband and I were raised in true Maine fashion doing all the outdoorsy activities such as snowmobiling, canoeing, camping, boating, etc. We are raising our children in this fashion or at least we are trying! Sometimes it is a battle between electronics and the great outdoors! Haha! About 5 years ago we set about building our new home which included an apartment for my father. This was a grand adventure of it's own! Sadly, my father has passed and now we have this empty but wonderful apartment that is unoccupied. We often rent cabins or the like in our own travels as we like to have a place to call home, including a kitchen, while we are away. This is what gave us the idea to rent our apartment.
Why Judy and Jeff Lessard chose Owls Head
Our property is in a quiet neighborhood on almost two acres of land. We have a large private yard surrounded by woods. The apartment has a separate entrance from the main house and has it's own deck to enjoy your morning coffee - you might even spot a deer or two! It is a one bedroom apartment but we can supply a pack-n-play if you have an infant. The space has many windows and lots of natural light. It has an open floor plan with a decent sized kitchen. Since the house itself is new, all appliance are full size and new (dishwasher, refrigerator, and stove with oven). It's truly a lovley space.
What makes this Apartment unique
A fully furnished apartment with a fully equipped kitchen in a new home. Owner on site. Our property abuts protected wet lands so, although we are close to town, we often see wildlife such as deer, turkeys, fox and even a moose!

Wonderful place to stay. Very, very clean, quiet and relaxing.
We’ve used VRBO for the past five years and this one is our favorite. Judy was very nice and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There was a separate entrance so we could come and go without disturbing anyone. The apartment was well stocked with kitchen utensils and the bathroom had plenty of towels and extra toiletries. Overall it had wonderful accommodations.Our goal was to visit many sites up and down the coastline of Maine and this property was perfectly located in the center of the coastline. The small town of Rockland, ME, that borders their property, had a variety of restaurants and shops. Many other quaint towns are just a few miles away. We are already talking about when we can come back to stay again!
Wonderful Home Away from Home
Excellent accommodation, well appointed, spacious, quiet, close to points of interest. Wonderful view of trees from the big windows in living room/dining area of the apartment. Very friendly owners.
Wonderful, roomy apartment, high on hill practically at the tree line. There were plenty of breezes inspite of the record heat this summer. The kitchen had everything you would need. The owners are quiet and you hardly know they are there. Down the street and across Route 73 there is a quiet beach that faces the Light House across the harbor. It is a a short, twenty minute walk provided you are fit. A minute up the road is Rockland and everything it offers which is a lot. Birch Point State Park is also just down the road and it is the type of beach everyone pictures Maine to be. We would love to go back.
Perfect spot for visiting MidCoast Maine
We were in the unique position of needing to extend our stay due to the delayed birth of our grandson. Judy and Jeff came to our rescue and were wonderful to us the whole time. The apartment is extremely well equipped, lots of light throughout the unit, good kitchen, comfortable furniture and bed. Judy has set up a superb retreat. The house is easy to get to, close to the town of Rockland with the museums and restaurants nearby. This was one of the best places I've ever rented through HomeAway.
Wonderful place to relax and enjoy a vacation
My wife and I just returned to Florida after spending the month of September at this lovely New England home and we wish we could of stayed longer. Everything you needed was in the house from bathroom necessities to kitchen appliances, utensils, pots, pans nothing was missing. The hosts were really friendly and if we needed anything all we had to do was ask. Duncan their pet dog - all 204 lbs - greeted us when we left and returned home. The apartment over the garage is really big for two people which was nice because you were not cramped. Four people could stay there easily but there is only one bedroom. The apartment was very very clean.
Rockland is a nice town with plenty of stores and places to eat, although some restaurants close for the season before the middle of September. Many other towns are just a short drive from the Rockland apartment. Rockland golf course is just a short drive away for you golfers. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Barry and Ann
Beautiful and comfortable home away from home!
This in-law apartment couldn't have been more comfortable!! It is roomy, clean, quiet and VERY comfortable with all the creature comforts of home!! It had everything we needed for our short one week stay (I wish we could have stayed longer!). And Judy and Jeff made sure everything was clean and in order so it was a very comfortable stay. They are very personable and accommodating landlords. I am hoping we can get back there next year for a longer stay!!
Within walking distance to historic downtown Rockland full of lovely shoppes as well as The Farnsworth Art Museum, the Rockland Breakwater and Light House Museum, The Boardwalk, The Puffin Project, Coastal Children's Museum, Sail Power and Steam Museum plus so much more. A few mile drive to the famous Owl's Head Transportation Museum, the Owl's Head Light House State Park and Birch Point State Park. Visit our neighboring town of Camden and climb or drive to the top of Mount Batty for spectacular views of the ocean! The area offers many activities such as schooner tours, etc.
