The property features a new gourmet kitchen, hardwood flooring throughout and other significant improvements. Located on Owls Head Harbor, right behind a working lobster pound, this property overlooks some of the best views in the Midcoast. The Mussel Ridge Channel passes right in front of the house, which is a major traffic lane for boats, allowing ample opportunities to watch various maritime activities. Guests have access to the private lobster wharf in front of the cottage to launch kayaks or buy lobster.
BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - There is a small section of usable sandy-pebbly beach at this property. You can walk or drive a 1/2 mile to Owls Head State Park Lighthouse where there are some small beaches as well. It is a short 5 minute drive to three great area beaches. The closest is Crescent Beach, but also Birch Point Beach State Park and Crocketts Beach are other public beaches within 5 minutes of the property. All of these beaches are great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" sandy beaches.

Choosing and booking the property went swimmingly, as did checking in. Our rental period was for 30 days, and we only had to contact On the Water twice and - by happenstance - both on the same day.
The property was perfect, and just what we wanted. It is comfortable and well appointed, beautifully and simply decorated and ideal for our family of four. It was well represented by On the Water, and I think was even better in person than the pictures. It was clean and welcoming when we arrived.
I think the best feature were the beautiful views and large windows to enjoy them, as well as the large backyard that leads down to the water, and lovely deck with grill. The house is also well situated in Owls Head - it's a ten minute walk to the Owls Head lighthouse, or a short walk to the general store which offers great breakfast and lunch. It's also convenient to nearby towns like Rockland, Rockport and Camden, and its midcoast location makes it an easy drive to Portland and Boothbay or up to Bar Harbor or Bangor. We definitely recommend this place - and think it could probably accommodate up to six quite comfortably.

Your agency is the only one I like to use, as it is thorough, personal, and gives great attention to details.
Here I am an entire year later FINALLY completing your survey. The house itself was absolutely gorgeous with huge picture windows looking out on the water. It has so many conveniences and was well maintained. The kitchen was a joy to use. We loved the large deck and the huge lawn leading g down to the water.

We are very happy with the agency - they were responsive when we had questions beforehand, but we also had absolute privacy during the weeklong stay. The check-in and check-out procedures are smooth and quick. As we left the property on check-out day, the cleaner person arrived.
The house is a gem. Privacy was excellent. Views of the bay were wonderful and relaxing. The house is spacious with huge windows overlooking the bay and lobster pound. The sky windows allow for natural light in the kitchen and bathroom and the area where the washer and dryer are. The washer and dryer are both huge and function as expected. The furniture in the house is very comfortable and suitable for a relaxing time in Maine. Kitchen is well equipped with all modern amenities - we never used the oven - only the stove top. Fridge/freezer is big enough for a big group of people and in good condition. I enjoyed my coffee using the (filter type) coffee machine. The toaster, blender and microwave were all in excellent condition. Wifi is very reliable - we needed that because our service provider does not have proper coverage in that area. We never watched TV, so we can't say anything about functionality - the TV is a huge modern flat screen. We never used the grill outside on the deck - but it looks like a very good grill. We were pleasantly surprised to see lots of board games in the house - and even a croquet set - but we did not use any of that during our stay - maybe next time. One of the reasons we chose this house is the fact that it has a king size bed and a shower en suite - we were not disappointed. The house is within comfortable reach of many attactions, but also secluded enough to provide peace and quiet.
