About the property

4 Bedroom 1.5 Baths Amazing Deck View Of The Ocean

This quintessential maine summer house is located in the town of owls head off of route 73 and down a winding dirt road which leads to the cottage with its spectacular harbor water view, guests park on the upper level and walk down a shady pathway to the back deck and entrances to the house. The cottage is 1 mile from downtown rockland and ideally located for enjoyment of local beaches, lighthouses, harbor activities, museums and so much more. The award winning 4 star restaurant primo is about 1/4 of a mile walk. The beautiful town of camden is also a close drive.

This classic wood frame summer house has been in the same family for years and is new to the rental market. Weathered shingles, large windows, and 2 decks make this an inviting and comfortable cottage. Harbor breezes keep the house cool in the summer.

From the back deck you can enter into either the kitchen or the dining room. The living room is located on the water side of the house and the deck overlooking the water is accessed through the living room. The deck has comfortable wicker seating along with classic maine rockers. The perfect spot to sit and enjoy the lovely view, read a book or to just sit! The kitchen has modern appliances yet still keeps its charm with an antique soap stone sink and antique wood cook stove (not useable). Washer and dryer and 1/2 bath are located off of the kitchen.

The second floor has 4 bedrooms with their cottage style furnishings including fun quilts and antique furniture which includes some braided rugs. The full bath is also located on the second floor. Second floor bedrooms have harbor views.

A great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, charming and inviting. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed. The deck is the gem of the house, so peaceful. The sunrises were beautiful and different each morning. We were close enough to Rockland, Rockport and Camden that we had plenty to do every day, if we wanted to. The Owl's Head Lobster Company, near the Owl's Head Light House is the place to go for lobster fresh off the boat.

We hated to leave, and plan to return soon.

Beautiful home with gorgeous ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Owls Head. This home is extremely comfy; we didn't want to leave. The back porch is everything, especially the hammock. Highly recommended.

Classic Maine Cottage Provides a Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is exactly as pictured, and it's picture perfect. The view is beautiful, and the cottage is a Maine classic. You could enjoy spending all of your time on the porch, but it's also very centrally located. We enjoyed our stay in every way and will hope to return.

Comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

“Sea Charm” was a perfect venue for our family celebrations: three generations celebrating two birthdays, an anniversary and other happy events over Memorial Day weekend. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped, with phenomenal views of Rockland harbor and Penobscot Bay. In addition to several celebratory meals prepared there, we had a dinner at Primo (reservations needed well in advance for the holiday weekend), a ferry ride to Vinalhaven for a picnic at Lane’s Island Preserve and, of course, lobster in Rockland. The location is excellent for many excursions: we enjoyed the Owl’s Head lighthouse and Transportation Museum and the Farnsworth Art Museum. It is tempting to try to make this weekend an annual event.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

Visited this cottage home for a few days to celebrate Mom's 80th birthday. Lovely old home with everything you could want. Loved the porch although our weather didn't allow us to use it as much as we would have liked. Having the ocean view was wonderful and the location is perfect. Loved the Rockland/Camden area.
