About the property

This beautiful waterfront home offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths and is located in the village of Owls Head, Maine (just off Route 73) with amazing ocean views. It is the perfect vacation home for a large family or two families that enjoy traveling together. The home has an open concept living area that is filled with light, and a large deck that spans the full width of the home, overlooking the harbor. The kitchen is fully-equipped with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

The home has just been completely renovated in 2016 with brand new furnishings, linens, and kitchenware. The location is perfect for you to enjoy everything that Midcoast Maine has to offer…museums, restaurants, light houses, shopping, hiking, and beaches. It’s just minutes from Rockland’s vibrant downtown and only a few miles from the Knox County Regional Airport.

Imagine waking up in the master suite of this luxurious home, and opening your eyes each morning to breathtaking views of Rockland Harbor from your king-sized bed. The expansive deck overlooks the harbor and is outfitted with a barbeque, outside dining area, and rocking chairs. You can spend the perfect day reading a book, sipping cocktails with friends, or just enjoying the view of the Rockland breakwater and lighthouse. This property provides direct access to the beach below. The home boasts two kayaks for your use, as well as a fire pit complete with Adirondack chairs for an evening gathering of marshmallow roasting and savoring ocean breezes!

The first floor of this lovely home has a family room (with sleeper sofa), two bedrooms each with queen-sized beds, a full bath and direct access to the back yard through sliding glass doors. The second floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bath and the master bedroom. The master boasts an en-suite bath with double vanity sinks, walk in shower, and a king-size bed. The deck can be accessed from the living room or master bedroom.

The home also offers a two-car garage with additional designated parking. We also offer WiFi throughout the house, four smart televisions so you can access your Netflix, Hulu, and other accounts, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Great home, great location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this house. Beautiful accommodations, close to some amazing restaurants and museums, and a view that made returning to the Midwest all but unbearable. The house had everything we needed for a great trip, down to the lobster pot and crackers.

Lovely, clean home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! It was 4 adults and three young children. Plenty of room for everyone. The huge deck was a favorite hang out spot and the flat yard made for lots of running around space.

This was the most well-appointed house we’ve stayed in, and the welcome binder was a resource we used all week. All the kitchen supplies you could need, and the overall decorations were beachy and perfect. We even locked ourselves out once (don’t ask!) and Valerie was there within 15 min to rescue us!

The surrounding area has lots of great seafood restaurants, and cute shops.

Our one suggestion is to add a dehumidifier for downstairs. Since the air conditioning is only for upstairs, it would help the lower level on humid days.

Overall, we recommend this place very highly!!

We're happy that you found the binder helpful...we always love to send our guests to our favorite places, and there are so many wonderful restaurants and shops within a few minutes of this home, it's hard to choose!

Owls Head House

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house,well appointed and amply equipped for a large group.. Comfortable for eight people. Children,ages 10 to 13, enjoyed having the downstairs to themselves.

Ideal location on a quiet cove but only a few minutes from Rockland. It was a very pleasant home base for our family vacation.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed this wonderful home, and that the children enjoyed having their own space! The layout of the home is great for two groups traveling together so they each have some privacy but are still one big happy family! We hope you all enjoyed the fire pit and kayaks as well...not to mention the wonderful restaurants and shops in Rockland. Please come back and see us again soon!

This was a beautiful home that met all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It certainly fits our needs. There was plenty of room for all. The kayaks were a wonderful added feature as was the firepit. We loved using both. The porch was a great gathering spot-great for afternoon drinks. The house was furnished with everything we needed. In short, the whole experience was wonderful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
