This beautiful waterfront cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood as the last property on a dead-end lane. The cottage sits on 2 private acres with 400' of shoreline on Rockland Harbor in Owls Head. Just over the town line from the abutting city of Rockland; head north for a mile and enjoy the happening Main Street town life with restaurants, galleries, shopping, museums, and theater. Continue north for another 7 miles to the picturesque communities of Rockport and Camden and enjoy what they have to offer as well. Head south and experience "the way life used to be" in Owls Head, Thomaston, Spruce Head, and the St. George peninsula.

This is a wonderful place for families to rent looking to enjoy great scenery and get out and explore the numerous activities offered by the area. Outside you have wooden stairs leading to a small pebble beach, perfect for tying up your Kayak. Thanks to the Rockland Breakwater, the ocean remains very calm and it is great for kayaking. The cottage is comprised of an older one story original section and a new section next door with a second larger kitchen, 2 additional bedrooms and a bathroom. The entire cottage is now a spacious comfortable retreat with ocean views from almost every room.

Please note that this property is located near the industrial end of Rockland. There is a shipyard close by, as well as a station where train cars off-load concrete onto barges. While many past Guests have enjoyed the sights of shipyard activity, occasionally a project at the shipyard may result in loud noises during normal operating hours for the shipyard, 7am - 3:30pm M-F.

BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - there is a pea-sized / pebbly beach about 100 feet wide in front to the cottage. Not necessarily a "swimming beach" - this is a good beach for sitting at in folding chairs or launching kayaks. There is not an actual fine sandy beach at this property, but the beach itself is better than most in the area and that is why we have classified it as being "on" a beach.

NEED EXTRA ROOM? Just a short distance away, is a quaint comfortable guest suite, which can accommodate another couple (2 guests), while remaining close to the rest of the group. Click HERE to visit the Owls Head Guest Suite property page.

CLEANING FEE: None. The property will be professionally cleaned before and after the rental. However, above normal cleaning charges will be billed at the current rate

OTWIM is the best agency to del with when it comes to vacation rental in Maine. We have been working with your company for the last twelve years and have never had any issues of consequence. The very few times we have had to call OTWIM, they were right there to address the issue.

We love A Stones Throw and that is the reason that we keep coming back year after year. We love the location and the privacy of the property.

Incredible deck spanning entire front of cabin overlooking harbor. Amazing views to watch all types of watercraft from sailboats, ferries, kayaks, schooners and so much more. We were delighted to discover an airshow was happening on our first full day and we experienced flyovers of WWII planes! Most amazing was view of the lighthouse on the breakwater from the deck on a clear day. We even revelled in hearing fog horns on foggy days. We had fun exploring the shipwrecked sailboat just down from us on the private beach. Great fun to put our own kayak's and paddle boards in the water right from the property. Everything we could have asked for or wanted in secluded spot at the end of dead end road. It felt private, protected and restorative.

I always got a response to my emails, however getting a live person on the phone proved to be more difficult. As someone who prefers email, I was okay with that, but in a couple of boilerplate emails/ correspondence, it stated I needed to speak to someone personally, so there was a little frustration as I was concerned there would be complications with the rental, not being able to get someone on the phone. That being said, the communication I had via email was enough. It was also very pleasant. The representatives are helpful, kind and friendly.

This was one of our top vacations. Very relaxing! The deck view was by far our favorite feature! I dont think Ive ever taken so many pictures on a vacation. Ive had people tell me that some of the pictures look like they are from a magazine. That is how picturesque the view from the deck and surrounding areas are. This is also the first time that we agreed that a second stay at a rental will be needed!

Tiffany has been doing this for along time and has the vacation rental business down to a science. We've rented many years ago from individual owner and the results were hit and miss. By renting OTWIM they require the owner they are handling to maintain a certain standard of amenities.

My wife and I have vacationed at a number of waterfront properties and A Stone's Throw is by far the best. The harbor views from the spacious deck are spectacular, and the beautifully landscaped grounds are secluded and serenely pastoral. The house is huge and combines an "open to the outdoors" feel with lots of private spaces.

This was our second time staying at A Stone's Throw and it was simply wonderful. The house was comfortable and well stocked with all the comforts of home. The large yard was great for the kids to run and play. We loved swimmimg on the pebble beach at high tide. The porch and Rockland harbour views were the very best part.

We love this house! We love it so much this is our 8th year staying in it. Can't say enough about the gorgeous water views from the deck and lovely private grounds around the property with its own beach. The owner has chosen to upgrade some of the furnishings this year to our surprise, not that the old ones needed it. Love that outside shower and will miss it.
