The Owls Nest Cottage is perched amongst the trees overlooking the tidal Damariscotta River and Jones Harbor just north of Farnham Point. With its private boat house and deep water dock, this property feels like your own private resort. The wrap around porch is nestled within the trees which provides privacy and a safe haven from the weather while enjoying the coastal, quintessential Maine cottage. The barn provides a quiet and private area from the main house, which is perfect for teens or a couple away from the group. The main house has a gorgeous stone fireplace upon entry with large windows at every angle to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Atlantic. Seating around the fireplace and dining area is perfect for any large party as well as a well equipped kitchen and modern appliances.

Continuing upstairs to the large queen and king suites with access to the private balcony overlooking the water; perfect to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine while enjoying the setting sun. The third floor is a great kids area with two separate rooms with twin beds as well as a common area with board games and expansive DVD selection. 

The newly designed outdoor fire pit is a great place for family night of s'mores and relaxing! Adjacent to the fire pit is a large yard which is great for badminton, croquet, wiffle ball, and many more family memories.

Very easy to work with. Your agency is very thorough and the info you provided answered all my questions before I had to ask. Everything about the Owl's Nest was fantastic.

Friendly, professional, ease of booking come to mind. Being that we are a group of ten and with two small dogs, Owls Nest provided plenty of room for us ALL to choose a beautiful bedroom, as well as the house offering large and well furnished living spaces for us all to hang out and dine together. Our absolute favorite feature is the spacious boat house, which offered hours of ping pong competitions, music, while on the water. We also appreciated the wharf, the beautiful landscaping, as well as the privacy the land offered (great area to walk pups). Owls Nest Cottage is Nirvana for a getaway. The owner had the most beautiful dishes, platters, bowls, of which many reminded my sister and I of our summers in Maine with our grandparents. And we were surrounded by an excellent selection of books. I believe that most of us read (or reread) at least one book. We never once felt claustrophobic, as there are plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces on the gorgeous property to have steal some alone time.

My son Alex Begin and I have been very pleased with your team. I believe this year is our 3d year at the Owl's Nest and I must say the contacts and dealings with your agency have been nothing but positive. simply put, we love coming to this facility and the fact any questions or issues that might arise are handled in a prompt, efficient, and courteous manner make the entire stay very pleasant. Where to start...the views are superb, the house is welcoming, roomy, large enough for people to have their own space, (most valuable when surrounded by Grandkids), and combines an aura of tradition and up to date aspects. Each year we notice improvements to the site whether it is interior (outdoor bathroom redone) or exterior such as the firepit. All are done in very good taste and with excellent workmanship. The ambiance is wonderful and transcends all ages of the guests. I love the stature of the trees . They are majestic and full of birds. The bird feeders on the porch are soothing. The fireplace is wonderful. The bedrooms are very adequate and those with views of the water are spectacular. The kids love the dock, boathouse and barn.

I work two jobs and have three kids. When I can afford the time and $ for a vacation, I just want to relax and spend time with my kids in a property that has higher end amenities, convenience and style. Driving 18 hours I wanted a view and space. On the water in Maine has allowed me to vacation ( I think 3 times) always in properties with lots of advance info, images and without false advertising. I like to be self service and search criteria, info and images on a site are key to me feeling like I know what I might be getting. There are non negotiable amenities for me and I can search specifically for them on your site.
