Ginn Point Cottage is set just 30 feet back from Crescent Beach in Owls Head.  The spectacular beach access makes this cottage perfect for families who are looking to spend all day in the sand. The home features brand new bathrooms, one with a custom stall shower, as well as new furnishings for 2017. The one-level home makes access easy for any guest.  The large bedrooms will make anyone feel at home, and the open floor plan of the living and dining area make family time a priority.  

Sit back and relax and enjoy the beach and lobster boats working out front. The yard is great for outdoor games and picnic lunches. The dead-end road the property is located on is nice for walks and biking around Owls Head, exploring the different beaches the town has to offer. A quick drive and you can explore Rockland, Camden, and Thomaston - truly a great location for any adventurer or beachcomber.

The On the Water in Maine team made the rental process quite simple. Appreciated the updates we received ahead of our time at the cottage. Did feel a bit frustrated at check out. Tried to leave a phone message as well as an email message to alert them about a broken wine glass and a face cloth (possibly two) brought home by mistake but the email was returned twice.
Property was wonderful and layout made it quite convenient for my husband who is in a wheelchair. It was a beautiful place and seemed to have nearly everything we needed. The only change I would make would be to have a small wedge type riser that could be placed against entrance door to make it easier for wheelchair. We were not able to bring husband's power chair inside but had another chair to use so it was not a big problem..

It couldn't have been any easier and we thank you for everything from beginning to end! Thank you all, and I know there are many behind the scenes that we will never know, for the incredible ease you have given to us for a vacation we will cherish forever! From the first phone call to the our final phone call on leaving every step was guided by your competent staff at every level! Ginn Cottage: Of course, the Ocean grabs you and is the Maine I know and love, but the layout of cottage was so well planned and easy to manage! The windows were incredible with the floor to ceiling effect, inviting the ocean into the house!

Worked with Meg and Tiffany. Both made sure all of our needs were met. Tiffany even brought us new cooking pans and spare blankets on a very hot day, which we needed later in the week when the evenings got cool.

We have rented houses from On the Water in Maine many times and have always been impressed with the service.
Ginn Point Cottage is a very comfortable house. The view can't be beat and easy access to the beach is wonderful. We brought kayaks and launched them right in front of the house. We enjoyed cooking lobsters several times at the house and the lobster pot outside is very convenient. It was very hard to leave such a wonderful place

Excellent. When I called to get feedback on how the property we were considering would work for our family the person suggested Ginn Point Cottage because it was closer to the beach and had a layout that would work with small children. Even though it was beyond our budget, she worked with the owners to negotiate a rate that worked with our price range. Such a great experience.
Ginn Point Cottage was fantastic. The house was bright and airy and the view was phenomenal. We loved being able to walk right down on to the beach at low tide.
