Peaceful, well-prepared, get-away
This cottage was a very pleasant place to spend a week in September. The porch is heavenly and nature put on some sort of show ever day. It was equipped with everything we needed and there is shopping nearby for food. The first night was a little cool for us southerners, but with the wood stove and the space heaters, we were quite comfortable. There was plenty to do--both Acadia and the Botanical Gardens are within an easy day trip and Rockland and Camden are just minutes away, plus various parks. There is a sand beach less than 10 minutes away--keep you eye on the tides! You are out of the way here, no real traffic to worry about, but not far from anything you might need. The cottage is small; four of us were comfortable, but more than that would have been too cramped. The bathroom and appliances were fine, no problems with any of them or with the grill on the porch. Everything was very clean, plenty of towels and linens provided. The owner has thought of everything and I would be happy to stay here again!
Spectacular view from the comfy screen porch and deck. My happy place!
This is our third year at the Curtis's cottage and we hope to return for many years to come. The setting is quiet, the view exceptional, and the simple cottage has everything one needs for a wonderful vacation in Maine. We love sitting on the porch watching the boats come and go in this little paradise. Rockland is only ten minutes away with good restaurants, galleries, museums, ferries to the islands and more. The owners are always available and helpful. We love it!
The perfect mix of woods and water!
This was my second stay at this cottage and I will continue to return over and over! The screened in porch is the perfect place to relax... bird watch, boat watch or read when you are fogged in. I enjoy easy access to all that Rockland has to offer and then come back to my peaceful home away from home!
Nice small cabin with a stunning view of Rockland Harbor
This is a very nice small cabin. Highlights include a screened deck for the stunning view of Rockland harbor, a location fifty feet from a rocky beach down a steep path, two small bedrooms with double beds, one smaller bedroom with a single bed, a nice stove for fires, easy access to Rockland, Thomaston, and Spruce Head and lovely, efficient and helpful landlords. Drawbacks include one bathroom, a fairly basic kitchen, and a location facing the sunset which often makes it hot in the late afternoon in the summer (although they have added a small air conditioner in the kitchen which also cools the master bedroom). It's comfortable for two people; more than that is pretty tight. We have stayed there for a few weeks every summer for eighteen years and hope to continue to do so.
This was our second visit to Dynamite Beach Cottage and it was just as wonderful as the first. The cottage is fully equipped with everything we could have needed, and Christine is very responsive and wonderful to work with.
Most of our stay consisted of sitting on the screened porch watching Rockland Harbor and the sunsets. It is such a fantastic view and so relaxing. Lobster boats come very close to the property and they liked to wave at us and the dogs as the week went on. We also enjoyed walking on the rocky beach with the dogs and there is just enough yard for the dogs to play.
The cottage is just a few minutes from town, and there are many restaurants for eating in or taking out. There are also several places to buy groceries to cook in the completely stocked kitchen at the cottage. We rode on a lobster boat with the dogs and also went on a puffin tour. But we were always happy to get back to the cottage for more harbor-watching and relaxing. We are looking forward to our next stay!
Charming cottage for the two of us.
Great views overlooking Rockland Harbor, working Lobster Boats with beautiful sunsets. Convenient to numerous fishing villages and light houses. Our first visit to Maine and couldn’t have asked for a better first experience.
Dynamite Beach Cottage is located on the water with sweeping views of Rockland Harbor, breakwater, lighthouse and the Camden Hills. You will be minutes away from Downtown Rockland where many shops, restaurants, museums and art galleries are located. Rockand's Harbor Park is also located nearby which is host to both the Lobster and Blues festivals. Camden is located ten miles to the north and Port Clyde is located 20 miles to the South. It is possible to visit 5 lighthouses in one day, all with scenic views. Owls Head Lighthouse is located minutes down the road. Rockland Lighthouse is viewable from the cottage and a ten minute drive. Port Clyde is host to Marshall Point lighthouse. Curtis Island lighthouse is located in Camden and Pemaquid Lighthouse is located about 45 minutes away in Bristol.
Two miles down Route 73 Owl's Head Transportation Museum hosts events every weekend throughout the summer. Permanent displays may be viewed daily.
Birch Point State Park is located 5 minutes away. It has a sandy beach and large rocks for sun bathing. Camden Hills State Park contains Mount Battie which is good for hiking or just driving the car up to see the views of Camden, Rockland, Lincolnville, and the Islands. Chickawaukie and Megunticook lakes have public swimming areas and are located in Rockland and Camden respectively. Acadia National Park, located in Bar Harbor, is a day trip away to the North and Reid State Park, in Bath, is a day trip away to the South.
In Owls Head Dynamite Beach is very private with no public access to the shore. It is excellent for children who like to search for crabs and snails under rocks and collect sea glass and sea shells.
