Blue Glass Cottage is located in the Crescent Beach summer neighborhood of Owls Head, which is a desirable area for families to vacation. The cottage has been offered as a vacation rental for several years with many satisfied repeat guests.
This cedar shingled house sleeps 5 in three bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The front of the cottage has a wraparound porch overlooking a large lawn. The ocean is just a minutes walk away and visible from the cottage.
Although appearing as a cottage, this is a year-round house with all the necessary comforts of home. The kitchen is fully equipped for those that like to cook. All bedrooms have room-darkening shades.
Blue Glass Cottage is close to the beach, making it easy to run back to the house for lunch or a mid-afternoon nap.
BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - it is a short 5-minute walk to publicly accessible Crescent Beach. Two other great area beaches are nearby. The closest is Crockett's Beach, but also Birch Point Beach State Park is within a 5-minute drive of the property. There is not an actual usable sandy beach at this property, but the nearby beaches are great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" sandy beaches.
NEED EXTRA ROOM? There is a quaint, comfortable rental just a short distance away, which easily 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.

On the Water in Maine is consistantly wonderful to work with, beginning to end.
Blue Glass Cottage had a lovely covered porch where we could sit to see and hear the ocean at Crescent Beach. An easy walk to lovely Crescent Beach was the best part of this property.

On the water in Maine was very thorough from the time we made our reservations to when we checked out.
Blue Glass Cottage was wonderfully kept and beautifully decorated. A vase of fresh flowers was a simple yet fabulous touch! The kitchen had everything we needed, which is a huge plus for a family that cooks!

We had a wonerful week at blue glass cottage. This was our second year there. Loved the new bed and new couch and chair in the living room. Better lighting in the bedrooms for reading would be helpful. House was very clean and well stocked. Location is perfect for visiting towns near by. Hope to be back next year.

Were very responsive to our needs
OTWIM COMMENTS TO THIS SURVEY (below) 3/20/15 - The garage on the property has been rebuilt over the winter of 2014/15 and is no longer an "eyesore" on the property. All toilets have been replaced. The lock has been changed out to a modern electronic lock. More lighting has been added.
GUEST COMMENTS FROM 9/24/14 - Garage collapsing in on property was an abomination and an embarrassment ! The plumbing (toilets) was constant problem. The faulty key was a constant harassment . Lights in two of three bedrooms were inadequate. Lights in living room were corrected when we complained. On the positive side, the house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. With a few adjustments (removing the falling in garage) this would be a great rental.
