About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Though the cottage was built in 1952, it has been fully upgraded including central heat. One bedroom has a double bed with closet and dresser, the other a bunk beds also with closet and dresser. Bedding, towels etc. are supplied and the kitchen is fully equipped. The cottage faces south overlooking the harbor, the mussel ridges and southern islands. There is plenty of lawn for the kids and your property includes 33 private acres to explore. Your own north shore has 1700 feet of shoreline with grassy and wooded knolls for camping ore reading, pebbly private beaches for swimming and plenty of space for a lobster picnic. The view north overlooks the Camden hills and rests on the southern edge of Penobscot Bay, noted for being some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. The Owls Head Light State Park adjoins the property east and its historic old light has the perfect view for picture taking.
Your property is within walking distance of downtown Owls Head where you can find one post office and one small general store, noted for a great lobster-man's breakfasts, famous cheeseburgers and home made apple pie.
The regional airport is only a few minutes away and includes the "Owls Head Transportation Museum" where many events are scheduled throughout the summer. Of course flights to and from the airport connect with the rest of the world. The city of Rockland is a 15 minute drive and has great restaurants, an active waterfront, and is noted for its annual Blues and Lobster festivals. The Farnsworth Museum is located in Rockland, as well as antique and gift shops. Ferries run regularly to the islands and make a great afternoon ride. The Samoset Resort is located just north and offers simple or formal dinning as well as golf and tennis. The resort's golf course, some say, has some of the most beautiful scenery of any in the country. While your there, take the mile walk on the Rockland breakwater to the old Rockland Lighthouse.
North on Rt 1 is Rockport, a typical Maine harbor town, with Camden a little farther. Both offer cruises on old Maine schooners and kayaks to rent for harbor exploring.
The Camden State Park is just north and Mount Katardin, the end of the Appalachian trail, is not far and makes a good hike. Bring your lunch and walking shoes.
Area attractions are too numerous to mention here. Google our towns, they're chambers of commerce, or specific attractions, for more information.

Notes:

INFORMATION FOR EASTER HILL COTTAGE TENANT: Welcome to Easter Hill Cottage. Hope you have a great vacation. I’d like to give you a few pointers and warnings. First, if you have any questions or maintenance problems please call Brian Plourde at 207 542 1426. Also, I can be reached at 386 451 2824 Please do not use the cottage fireplace. The central LP furnace offers adequate heat for cool evenings. Please please make sure your kids do not play on the top bunk of the second bedroom. The protective slat should be raised to its highest position and the bunk should be for sleeping only. Water and Septic: The cottage well water has a high mineral content. Although safe to drink, many prefer bottled water for drinking. Although the septic system is very effective, it will clog if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH ANYTHING BUT TOILET PAPER. No feminine products should be flushed at any time. Be sure to leave the cottage as you found it. Remember, latest departure time is 12 noon. Please check in with Brian before you leave, particularly if you have any change in your plans, such as leaving early, or there are any maintenance requirements. Check with Brian or myself should you like to extend your stay. Your damage deposit will be refunded after the cottage has been inspected and: no damage has been found beyond normal wear and tear, no items are missing – such as towels, linens, etc. no out of the ordinary clean-up or maid service is required, the lawn is picked up and trash free, toys put away, garbage is bagged and placed in the shed, etc. DURING YOUR STAY, bag all trash and put in the shed for pickup. If left outside, the raccoons will explore it for nibblies. CAUTIONS: On weekends, Lighthouse Road can be quite active due to park traffic. If you have children with you, be sure they use caution. The field and shore across the road is part of the cottage property, but there is a steep bank along the harbor.
