Owls Head Village Post Office - Sleeps 5: Click Forward Button Above to See Photos.
A Post Office as a vacation rental? Yes - Absolutely. This spectacular renovated building started as a barn on a nearby island in the 1800's. Shipped over by barge in 1920, it was skidded up the hill, to its current location, in the quaint village of Owls Head, overlooking the harbor. The downstairs of this historic building has been the working local post office since 1931. Upstairs, insulated from any noise of a small village meeting place, is the open loft style apartment, with soaring cathedral ceilings. Designed and decorated like a historic Maine cottage. Comfortably furnished, this property is the perfect romantic getaway. A great location, with amenities close by. The modern, cozy kitchen will support all of your cooking needs. The loft is a private retreat for any children in your party, just like sleeping in a tree house! There's a private deck off the back offering beautiful views, where you can eat dinner and watch the sunset.
Next door is the "world's best" general store with "award winning" breakfasts and lunches served daily. Grocery items, soda, and wine available for you to take along on your daily adventures. A five minute walk down the hill takes you to a wharf, where you can buy lobster right off the boat. This is where you can launch your kayak for a day of exploring the islands and coves around Owls Head Bay. A 10 minute walk is the historic Owls Head Lighthouse, open to the public. Here, a public beach will support your swimming and sunning desires. There are other sandy beaches only 5 minutes away by car. This romantic getaway is all you could dream of in Maine vacation.
