THE PERFECT ISLAND GETAWAY. A SECLUDED SPOT WITH A SPECTACULAR VIEW.
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.

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!

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!
