Ocean View, Dog-Friendly Cottage w/ Lovely Lawn, Path to the Beach & WiFi!

Spectacular views of the open ocean and Emery Island await at this two-story cottage in Owls Head, where you'll find a nicely landscaped lawn and hedges of beach roses framing a path down to the beach.

The first floor is quite spacious. The combined dining room and living room are the heart of the cottage, lined with large windows overlooking the front lawn and the ocean. Enjoy a comfortable sofa, a gas-fired brick fireplace, and a dining room table that's a great place to eat, play games, or put together a puzzle on a rainy day. The galley-style kitchen is reminiscent of days gone by with beautiful shiplap cupboards, built-ins, and a breakfast bar. The den at the back of the house is a wonderful place to relax at the end of the day, offering a flatscreen TV and a DVD player. The cottage is equipped with free WiFi as well.

The spacious primary bedroom occupies the second floor. This recently renovated room has vaulted ceilings and incredible views of the ocean.

On this dead-end road (which minimizes traffic), you'll be within walking distance of the village center of Owls Head, where you'll find a neat general store, a library, a post office, and a wharf where you can buy lobsters. Within a short drive are bustling Rockland, Tenants Harbor, Port Clyde, Camden, and Rockport. Owls Head is a great place to feel away from it all while still having the Midcoast at your fingertips!

Location was great. Don’t follow directions from email, use GPS. Internet PW on sheet in house was wrong, email one was correct. Bring nonstick skillet. Cottage has a toaster even though we were told, after asking, it did not, so we brought one. Ditto hairdryer. Note that it has no TV service though it has 2 TVs.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Dawn. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed this great location. We apologize for any misinformation you were given regarding the toaster. Please note the tvs are for streaming only. Thank you again for your review. We hope you'll visit again.

Beautiful, well-appointed cottage 20 feet from the ocean. We loved all the sunlight that shone through on the main floor and in the upstairs bedroom. The back deck was great, and we spent many hours relaxing with a cold beverage taking in the incredible view. We had everything we needed.

The house had many fine points, but needs to address a few items. The kitchen is tiny, which makes it ridiculous to have an empty cabinet in the kitchen which could be a dishwasher or more cabinet/drawers. The water pressure in the shower horrible. It's nasty to have a washer and dryer visible to guests but not made available.
SummerMaine is the worst, nastiest, most heavy handed property manager we've ever encountered. We hope Vacasa, who just bought them, will rein them in. They threaten fines for everything from putting garbage in the wrong way to leaving windows open to claiming to charge fees every 15 minutes for late check outs. It's just nasty! And you could allow early check ins when the property is vacant the day before and ready early, which this one was. And make sure your listing on VRBO accurately reflects the policies the contract will have. Also, 5:00 check in and 9:00 check out is ridiculous for ANY rental, not to mention a one bedroom unit with 500 something square feet to clean! Please get rid of SummerMaine and professionally manage this in a way that reflects respect and concern for the comfort and convenience of your guests.

Very sweet and cozy one bedroom cottage. We enjoyed the location and the sun rises each day.

This cottage is located in a perfect spot. Having Crescent Beach in walking distance is perfect. We loved being able to walk/run in the area. We also enjoyed all the local restaurants. Access to a washer/dryer would’ve been helpful during our stay. Overall this cottage is tight for 4 people, but we still enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful view of the Ocean. The cottage was nice and clean, up to date. The gas fireplace did not work initially. This was fixed by the time we left and we were compensated with a gift card. The overall experience was better than expected. We will definitely make plans to return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
