Property description

Beautiful open plan living and dining room with stone fireplace. Large family kitchen with extra Island with bar stools for seating, everything you need to entertain.

Large deck accessed from Living Room and Kitchen with new Weber gas grill. A great place to relax, watch the birds and listen to the ocean.

Very comfortable accommodations available for you and your guests: 1st floor: Guest Room (queen bed) with beautiful new bathroom with tiled shower stall and adjacent new washer/dryer. 2nd floor: Master Suite (king bed) with private deck and master bath. Master bathroom has been beautifully remodeled to incorporate a Kohler Hydrotherapy Tub (air powered so no old water ever stays in system as with Jacuzzi tubs) plus shower. Also on the 2nd floor loft (2 extra long twins) with adjacent bathroom.

Guests may bring their own linens or we'll rent them for you. Hammock ready and waiting in front garden. Plenty of street parking in front of house and driveway plus a garage to store your bikes and beach gear. Beautiful landscaping around property adds to the charm of this very special home. A delightful garden path takes guests through wood to Young's Crossing and the gorgeous Winward Way garden path to Main Street in 5-10 minutes. Close to the action but just far enough away for peace and quiet in an established community of well spaced homes and lush landscaping.

This is a wonderful property 12 months a year. Summer at the beach and on the water, Fall hiking and biking surrounded by glorious foliage. Winter snow shoeing and skiing and in the Spring the sensational gardens of Ogunquit come to life and the birds come back to roost.

Ogunquit is a very special place. The town caters to tourists from around the globe with great events and activities throughout the year. Come visit us soon.

Notes:

We do not recommend our home for elderly guests or small children. The house is situated on ledge so you have to climb a staircase to get to the front door - or a staircase from the garage up to the back door then stairs from the first to second floor. If one of your guests has trouble with stairs this is not the house for you. Because the bannister rails on the stairs from the 1st to 2nd floor are spaced a little wider than current code considers safe a small child could possibly slide through and fall. All renters are required to sign a disclaimer stating that they will not bring small children into the home. No pets are allowed either.

Car: Recommended

Tucked into a pristine small private hillside community - Village Highlands. Rob Roy is situated on a hill overlooking woods and homes sloping down to the ocean less than 0.5 mile away. A short hiking path leads from the property to Young's Crossing and Windward Way which takes you to the intersection of Bintliff's Restaurant and Main Street (Route 1). Turn on the lights strung through the woods and you'll find your way home after dinner!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Originally from UK my husband and our three children live in Dedham, Massachusetts but spend plenty of time in Ogunquit to relax and enjoy everything Southern Maine offers. We love walking the beach. 4 glorious miles of sand and ocean with only a handful of people to share it with in the off season - magic! In the summer the beach is packed until 5pm so we bike down at the end of the day for a long walk or swim. Yes the ocean is cold, but that's why they invented wet suits!

Why the Owner Chose Ogunquit, ME, USA:
We looked for two years for a property that we would like to vacation in year round. We checked out Cape Cod and the islands (too much traffic), Lake Winnipesaukee, NH (few good independent restaurants) and Boston's South Shore (too suburban for a vacation). So, we gravitated back to our all time favorite town Portsmouth, NH at which point we decided to incorporate 'summer rental' into the equation so Kittery, York and Ogunquit (never heard of it!) were suggested. After too many property search emails to review we just told our broker to find us properties to view that met the following criteria: The Best Summer Rental north of Portsmouth (walk to Beach and Town) with a Great Master Suite ('pull up the ladder Jack, we're okay!'), a Great Kitchen (I love to cook, our oldest son's a chef, we're always feeding people), and a Great Big Deck (I have a garden at home). We got all of that plus 3 delightful bedrooms each with their own bathroom which works wonderfully with out-of-town guests or family. Location, location, location! Just a ten minute walk to town and fifteen minutes to the beach means that you can bike or walk anywhere - the beach, Ogunquit town and the Marginal Way (all the way to Perkins Cove and back). Hang up the car keys, everyone can come and go under their own steam. The weekend we first viewed the house, and put an offer down on the house, was the first time we had ever stepped foot in Ogunquit. It was a great weekend. We walked the Marginal Way, we biked on the beach, we started investigating the local restaurants (40 at the last count and all fabulous), we sang along at The Front Porch's piano bar and we bought season tickets at The Ogunquit Playhouse. We had a blast in spite of the fact it rained all weekend. That was April 2013. We moved in at the beginning of June and have spent practically every weekend there since. Now we're ready to play nice - and share! :-)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house feels a little like a tree house. The first floor lines up with the middle of the surrounding trees. The second floor is above the tree line which is why, when the leaves are off the trees, we see the ocean on the horizon. In the summer the trees provide shade on the deck in the fall and winter the views are beautiful. The house is always full of light - the light in Ogunquit is very special which is why it has been an artists colony since the turn of the last century. A gorgeous floor to ceiling stone fireplace dominates the main living space. The house is pretty inside and out and the location is PERFECT!
