Relax w/ a View & Perfect jump-off base for mid-coast Maine

  • 5 of 5

For my first trip to Maine w/ my wife and baby I did extensive research on which town to stay.. I landed on Owl's Head due to it's relaxed vibe (tiny population) and proximity to good town's to visit for day trips (Rockland next door, Camden 30min, Belfast 1hr, Boothbay about 1hr.) It also has an excellent geographic location (being on the tip it you get a taste of open water and the bay. Once I landed on OH, it was easy to decide on this cottage due to the pictures, the reviews, and frankly Gordon - she is very down to earth and friendly!

When I arrived at the cottage I immediately texted Gordon, "We are never leaving!".. that is the first impression you will get when u roll up the dirt driveway to your secluded cottage directly on the water! The rest of the experience was a 10/10... the cottage itself (fully stocked, tastefully designed, quality furniture, comfortable bed, insane view from the master bedroom), Gordon's responsiveness and friendliness (she came over the day we arrived to bring bugspray and say hello), and the peacefulness (grilling while watching the sunset with a glass of wine.) Lastly, I have to mention that I really enjoyed my mornings runs to the lighthouse and back before breakfast (perfect quick workout to start the day!) We hope to be back soon!!

Reviewer Comments:

Our second visit. This time two full weeks. As we have come to expect, Gordon was a most gracious host. She made it all work so smoothly. Flexible, accommodating, caring. The place is perfect period. Modern, clean, yet quaint and cozy. Watching sun come up and lobster boats heading out with morning coffee is the best. Great restaurants in Rockland and Camden. Primo is packed in off season-need reservations. Tons to do if you want. We did some sightseeing and some days just reading.

Perfect for One Couple

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently spent two weeks at Castlewood Cottage and we were delighted with the cottage itself and with the location. The house overlooks a rocky (not sandy) beach and has expansive views of the harbor and to the ocean. The charms of Rockland and Camden are a short drive away and shouldn't be missed. Friends (another couple) stayed with us for 4 nights which worked out okay but would have been better had their bedroom not been so very tiny. The 2nd bedroom is just a bit larger than the size of the bed itself - probably fine for kids but not so comfortable for adults. The cottage is tastefully furnished and well-outfitted for vacation stays. Fresh cookware and a more up-to-date range would have made it easier for my husband, an accomplished chef, to prepare meals. But, he still managed to prepare great dinners thanks in part to the incredibly fresh ingredients so readily available in the area. Million-dollar views constantly drew us to the two-person back deck and to the spacious upstairs sitting room. After a bumpy start, Gordon, the owner/manager replied to calls and texts in a timely fashion and seemed to genuinely care about her guests' comfort and enjoyment. We enjoyed our stay and would very much recommend Owls Head as a perfect home base for vacations in this area of the Maine coast.

Great family trip, location was ideal. Short bike ride to Owl's Head light for exploring. Owl's Head General Store has a great burger. Only request is new grill surface for cooking. All else, top notch.

Absolutely No Response

  • 1 of 5

I had high hopes for a nice weekend on the Coast with my wife and Owls Head was, seemingly, one of the best options I'd found in my extensive searching. Unfortunately, after 2 attempts myself and an additional attempt by my wife we received Zero response from the Property Manager.

I even waited a couple of weeks to give him or her the benefit of the doubt in that there may have been a vacation involved, but no luck despite the 'Manager indicating a response within 24 hours'.
