Located at the end of desirable Canns Beach Road in Owls Head in a traditional waterfront community. The cottage includes incredible sweeping views of the ocean, a great lawn, wonderful deck, and comfortable interior furnishings. This property is a perfect getaway for any group. It is also a great property for a first-time visit to Maine.

Little Island View Cottage is a short drive to Crocketts Beach as well as Crescent Beach, which makes it great for days at the beach, but escaping the crowds to retreat to a small piece of Owls Head paradise. Upon arriving at the property, you are met with beautiful landscaping and a cheery red door that accentuates the coastal seaside cottage. Once entering the house, there is a spacious entryway where the first floor half bathroom and laundry area are located. Enjoy views from each room as you continue into the kitchen area, which was newly renovated for the 2020 season, and dining area with seating for 6 people. The TV/den area has privacy to enjoy an afternoon book or to watch a movie on a rainy afternoon. The larger living room has expansive views of the water and comfortable furnishings which make it perfect for evening board games or cocktails. At the top of the stairs, on the second floor, the full bedroom is directly on the right, continuing down the hallway to the two twin bedroom with beautiful water views. The queen master bedroom has an expansive layout to include an office area and reading/library room which has shared access to the full bathroom, fully renovated in 2020. The bathroom has another door accessible from the hallway where the full and two twin bedroom are located, so the bathroom has 2 points of entry, one from the queen bedroom and one from the hallway near the stairs. 

Outside the cottage, there is a spacious deck area with a picnic table, gas grill, and comfortable chairs which is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine or coffee while listening to the passing boats and water crashing on the rocky shoreline. The large lawn area is perfect for any four-legged furry friends. With the newly added stairs to access the water and shoreline, launching kayaks, beachcombing, and seaside adventures await for hours of enjoyment. 

Little Island View Cottage is a short drive to downtown Rockland and Camden where numerous boutique shops, dining, live music, and world renowned restaurants are located. Checkout the dates for the Lobster Festival and Blues Festival in Rockland as well as chartering Schooner Rides out of Camden and Rockport Harbor. The Owls Head State Park and Lighthouse as well as Birch Point Beach, Crescent Beach and Crockett's Beach are within minutes of the house. A day trip to Bar Harbor or Acadia is a 2 hour drive and Boothbay Harbor is only an hour for great whale watching, cruises, and summer events and fireworks.

More specifically for this property - it is a short 5-minute walk along the shore to sandy Crocketts Beach. There is not an actual usable sandy beach in front of this property, but the nearby beach is great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" a sandy beach.

From the first moment I inquired about renting a house, to the final check out every interaction I had with the OTWM was fantastic. I have to give an especially high mark to the people who prepared the house for our arrival. The house was immaculate.
There is no question why the house is called Little Island View, the view was the best part of the house

As usual, we had a great experience. We always got prompt and courteous email responses.
We love coming to Little Island View Cottage. We loved the new addition of the staircase down cliffs to the rocks. My 4 year old loved exploring the rocks while the baby napped inside-- kept us outdoors when we couldn't be down the road at Crockett's Beach.

Every contact with OTWIM team members was friendly and efficient.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in Little Island View Cottage. The view of our already favorite island was amazing through those wonderful windows and from the convenient and beautiful deck. We and our guests who came for happy hour loved the collection of natural decor in every room. And the well-equipped kitchen was a joy!

On the Water has been great to deal with!
We had our 2nd visit to this wonderful house and hope to be back again next year. The updates that have been done are so tasteful and beautiful, and to be right on the ocean is fabulous! The location is very close to many tourist sites, but it is sometimes difficult to leave the comfort of this house to go visit these places. The owners have taken such care to make sure we needed nothing for our relaxing vacation!

Fantastic! Everything was easy and communication was super clear. We absolutely loved this home. It was a beautiful cottage with stunning views. It was extremely spacious for our family of 3 and we felt right at home. The house had everything we could think to need on our home-- the owners took care in ensuring a perfectly stocked kitchen, and had all sorts of other things (games, beach bags, books, grill tools, baby/dog gate, etc.)
