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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to begin with this apartment! It is a gorgeous, open concept, one bedroom apartment that I considered myself absolutely lucky to live in. I stayed for just under a year and would NOT have moved if I did not relocate my job. This is an in-law apartment but you would never know while being in it. It was always quiet and relaxing. This space is extremely welcoming and immediately feels like home when you walk in. There is a private entrance and designated parking space for the tenant. This apartment offers plenty of natural light and has been taken care of, as it is pristine!

The landlords are the sweetest people you will ever come across. I would recommend this apartment to anyone that is looking for a place to call home.

Private Neighborhood On Outskirts Of Rockland-1 Mile To Downtown & Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

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.

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy a vacation

  • 5 of 5

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

Perfect spot for visiting MidCoast Maine

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful and comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Clean and Comfortable Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Judy were great hosts (living on-site) when my husband and I rented this private apartment for three beautiful summer months. The house, grounds, and apartment are spotless. The kitchen was stocked with everything necessary to cook and serve intimate meals or small dinner parties. We spent many happy nights grilling meals and drinking wine on our own balcony. Ocean breezes flow through the airy apartment keeping it cool all summer long, and bright, cheery sun fills the space all day. The bed is comfortable and linens are new and spotless.

At the end of the road there is a private sandy beach, and downtown Rockland is a safe walk one mile walk away, with plenty of shopping and award winning restaurants.

I highly recommend this property for a short stay or long-term rental.
