The Halcyon Point property sits on the end of a quiet, private road. With spectacular views of Norton Island and the Atlantic from the deck, living room and upstairs balcony, you're never short of amazing eye candy even when it’s foggy. 

You’ll be assured frequent sightings of osprey, loons, deer, turkeys, and occasional bald eagles. Be sure to check out the stars at night too. Amazing. Nearby on the island, there is access to a private, rocky beach from which to launch kayaks and to take your dog swimming.  When it comes to meal time, with a well equipped kitchen, you’ll never have to leave. 
Halcyon Point is a secluded compound consisting of a main cottage and separate bedroom cottage 50 feet away.  

The property is located on Rackliff Island in the town of St George near the Village of Spruce Head Island. This island is accessible via a car-driven causeway. Private, yet close to Rockland, Thomaston and Camden, Rackliff Island is a popular vacation destination.

OTWIM is a model service organization.
Halcyon Point is a modern art work house, scandinavian in its clean geometry and sparse serenity. The siting and orientation of the modern house has been planned to catch the spectacular view of Norton Island just s short gull fly from the rocks below Halcyon Point, and the open ocean to the southeast. The fog comes in quietly at times, and then is gone as quickly. The layout o the rooms is unconventional, but chosen to keep the footprint small. We did not use the Guest House, but that looked equally as appealing.

Justin, the Owner of On the Water in Maine, is amazing in his knowledge of rental properties and his memory of renter names. It is very relaxing to have a telephone # dedicated to quick response of questions and problems. The office staff fielding calls are wonderfully friendly and personal.
The overwheming feature of Halcyon Point is its site and view. It is all in the name...tranquil. There is great privacy from the one neighboring property with residents. The master bedroom is large and comfortable, the kitchen very well supplied to produce and enjoy full meals on site. And always a distracting view while cooking! The lazy upstairs den is like a cozy treehouse for relaxing in the morning with coffee and maple scone from The Market Basket until the day's plans pull together and again in the evening to watch some news or a movie.

Top notch customer service.
This was a very enjoyable rental in which to spend two weeks on Maine's coast. The overwhelming asset is the view from all parts of the house. The house itself is very simple with the only comfortable relaxing space on the second level. The one bedroom is large with a comfortable king bed. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking meals. The downside is the one small bathroom. An upgrade to a larger TV would be welcome. Rockland is 15-20 min. by car, the closest place for adequate shopping. A really enchanting spot to which we would return.

The agency was very efficient and all went smoothly . When we expressed concern about some disturbance from the building work which started on the Monday of our stay after a peaceful weekend, the agency did their best to investigate (the building work had apparently unexpectedly over-run due to the late spring). We were offered an alternative very nice property for the last couple of days of our stay but did not take up the offer due to the little time left and the fact that the noise from the building work had reduced to a more tolerable level as the week went on.
The house exceeded our expectations with wonderful views including bald eagles and ospreys fishing. This was the best equipped house we've ever stayed in with an amazing range of books and board games, as well as everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. A very comfortable house in a beautiful setting.

It was very helpful that the outside lights were on when we arrived Saturday evening. Thank you, Justin, for coming to Halcyon to deal with minor repairs. You and the rest of your staff at On the Water in Maine are always very pleasant to work with.
Halcyon Point Cottage is a blissful site. We very much enjoyed the home and the setting. Neighbors, human and animal, were engaging. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you On the Water in Maine for all of your attention both with this house and the Bar Island Cottage we rented from you before it. Both are lovely.
Thank you for sharing your bit of heaven with us. The seclusion is wonderful. You could view the night sky without light pollution. It was a beautiful location. We will be visiting again if you will have us but would hope the construction next door is completed. Mary and Dent lynch

When renting Halcyon Point, it was good to know that while you are renting a place, you can call someone if you need anything..... Very friendly folks at On the Water in Maine....this is our second time working with you. We LOVED Halycon ... it is simply gorgeous. The view out any of the many windows is marvelous. It is Maine coast surrounding you. What more could one want? Comfortable place in every respect and the upstairs with the huge windows and deck also lovely. Haven't seen such a sky full of stars in ages even though we live in semi-rural upstate New York.

On the Water in Maine is an exemplary business with great personal service and attention to detail.
Halcyon Point provides some of the best views we have ever enjoyed since first visiting Maine many years ago. It is the perfect combination of privacy, proximity to nature, and a comfortable home that makes you feel like you really belong on Rackliff Island. Thank you for offering your property for rental. We so appreciate all your effort to keep the house and property wonderful. As owners of an historic house (c. 1790), we know all too well the pains and blood/sweat/tears it takes to keep things going. We, too, have had the problems with septic, wells, electricity, and so on. ] Keep up the great work! John and Elisabeth Bradley Lincoln University, PA

My communications with Tiffany and Justin at On the Water in Maine were very pleasant and very informative. The view from almost every window at Halcyon Point is beautiful and there's lots of windows! The house is well situated - private and secluded -and well laid out. The internet access and speed was great. Full bars on cell phones. Even the AM/FM analog radio in the kitchen had great reception. My husband says WBACH is the best classical station he's ever heard! It was the perfect place to relax.
Thank you for sharing your home. My family had a wonderfully relaxing vacation there!
