Car: Recommended

MID-COAST, MAINE: The scenic bays, craggy peninsulas and sparkling offshore islands form a stunning backdrop to Mid-Coast Maine’s picture-perfect fishing villages, seaside resorts and bustling harbor towns. Delve deeply into Maine’s maritime past, watch whales and puffins, explore by bike or sea kayak and dine on world-class seafood. In the Midcoast region, arts and culture flourish amidst the legacy of the sea.

ROCKLAND (1 mile from house): Rockland’s lively arts and culture scene includes the world-class collections at the Farnsworth Art Museum and the Wyeth Center. Stop by the Puffin Project Visitor Center and Maine Lighthouse Museum. Ferry out to Vinalhaven, North Haven or Matinicus. Discover award-winning restaurants. Browse bookstores in Rockland or fill up on lobster rolls at the annual Maine Lobster Festival. Bike the St. George peninsula or explore the harbors by kayak and the islands by boat.

CAMDEN (10 miles): Camden is a classic harbor town, a short drive north of Owls Head, characterized by quaint inns and B&Bs and framed by the magnificent Camden Hills. Hike or drive up Mt. Battie and then relax in a harbor-side pub overlooking windjammers and fishing boats. Make a side trip to the charming arts community of Rockport.

OWLS HEAD: The Village of Owls Head has a compelling charm that should be described in part by what's NOT there (no traffic lights, no traffic, no crowds) and in part by what IS there (Maine's best cheeseburgers at the Owls Head General Store, 2 wineries, 3 lighthouses, Owls Head Light State Park, Birch Point Beach State Park, etc.) and miles of beaches and wooded trails to explore.

THIS HOUSE: This unique, rolling, grassy 7 acre property sits next to a nature preserve overlooking Rockland harbor and has productive apple trees, rasberries, blueberries, and blackberries in season. There is plenty to do nearby but visitors often get so comfortable they lose interest in exploring beyond the edges of this family property.

We hope that happens to you.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We're a family with two children (a 16 year old boy and a 12 year old girl) that grew up feasting on blackberries that flourish on the property and lobsters collected from clean water off our beach. We also enjoy boating, swimming, and fishing in the Penobscot Bay. Hiking, exploring, and enjoying other local resources rounds out our time in Maine. And although our family has been in Maine for 6 generations we're not yet able to live here full time.

Why the Owner Chose Owls Head, ME, USA:
A pristine interior and rambling grounds -- neither characteristic of rentals you've seen before-- centrally located in the great state of Maine.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Newly renovated interior, private beach and grounds
