Ein Post Office als ein Ferienhaus? Ja unbedingt. Diese spektakuläre renovierten Gebäude begann als eine Scheune auf einem nahe gelegenen Insel in den Jahren nach 1800. Das Erdgeschoss des historischen Gebäudes ist seit 1931 die Arbeits lokalen Post. Im Obergeschoss, von jeglichem Lärm eines kleinen Dorfes Treffpunkt isoliert ist, ist die offene Loft-Stil Wohnung mit steigenden Kathedrale Decken. Gestaltet und dekoriert wie ein historisches USA kleines Landhaus. Komfortabel eingerichtet, ist dieses Hotel die perfekte romantische Wochenende. Eine tolle Lage, mit Annehmlichkeiten in der Nähe. Das moderne, gemütliche Küche wird Ihre Bedürfnisse Kochen zu unterstützen. Der Dachboden und Kuppel sind private Exerzitien für die Kinder in Ihrer Partei, genau wie schlafend in einem Baumhaus! Die Aussicht von der Kuppel sind Panorama, mit einem flüchtigen Blick auf das Meer in der Ferne. Es gibt einen privaten Deck von der Rückseite bietet eine herrliche Aussicht, wo Sie zu Abend essen und den Sonnenuntergang zu beobachten. Nebenan befindet sich das "weltbesten" Gemischtwarenladen mit "preisgekrönte" Frühstück und Mittagessen serviert.

Comfort and rustic beauty around every corner in the gentle village "bustle" of Owls Head
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The kids of course ran up to check out the Cupola as soon as we arrived and we heard immediate "Wows!". The beds in the loft and main area were so comfy and the layout and design of the space was so fun. We loved the details of the heart rocks, owls, books and ocean artifacts throughout the home that sits above this village Post Office. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook up some local seafood we got at Jess's market down the road. The back garden "dock" next to the frog pond offered such a peaceful spot for sipping coffee in the morning. The birdwatching from the back deck was impressive. The location offered the fun spots to explore just down the road (beaches, lighthouse, lobster wharf) and Rockland and Camden 10-20 mins away from this unique home away from home. Doug and Leah were incredible hosts providing us with everything we needed from great local foodee recommendations to best beaches to explore. They have created a truly special place.
We had the best time. Property was perfect! We definitely will be returning.
Never had been to Maine. This property and area were perfect. Thanks Doug and Leah.
The Post Office is great. Very conveniently located, very comfortable. My wife and I loved it. Would highly recommend it.
This was probably the best place we've stayed at from Home Away. The Post Office was so cool, from the decorations to the Cupola. Our 2 kids loved sleeping up there with the amazing view of the backyard and the cabin and pond out back. The location is perfect so close to Rockland and Camden. The kitchen is a good size although we ate out every night. We also used the kayaks to explore the islands. Having a glass or 2 of wine on the deck at night was also great looking out at the amazing gardens. Thanks so much for the bottle of wine, such a thoughtful gesture. We will definitely book here again.
nice location in owls head maine
I knew it was winter and expected cold so that was fine. The heat in the unit was great and having warm floors from the Post Office below was also enjoyed. The bedding was very comfortable and the bathroom was roomy and eclectic. Note that I travelled solo and did not use the upper floors though I did check them out. Very steep stairs would be an issue for some and difficult to move luggage . Kitchen was compact and functional..funky soapstone sink. I always wipe things down before and after but was dismayed that you could write your name on the stovetop dust. For a place that charges a cleaning fee I expected better
There were however a few issues which as a frequent renter on this site I feel comfortable sharing. The unit was essential "broom swept" while the bathroom was clean the kitchen was dusty and utensils were old and not so good. The staircase was very narrow with virtually no room at the bottom landing to carry anything in. And then the big problem, while trying to carry things in the very heavily sprung door smacks into your back. There were protruding bolts and a hook on the massive spring that caught on not one but 2 down jackets essentially ruining them. It was not an option not wearing a coat with below zero temps. The television set up was quite a challenge as well though internet access was very good
cool eclectic place with extensive gardens which I have seen in summer. Dockland is a great town with year round attractions and restaurants. The upper levels will hold interest to some. A one than done for me though.
We have rented The Owls Head Village Post Office for years and this is the first less than satisfied review. We strive to make our guests stay perfect and as comfortable as possible! Our cleaning person has worked with us from the beginning and she always leaves the place spotless. There was a week gap between the guest before you, so possibly that could have been the reason for a little dust? Nobody has ever complained about the stairs, door, or television setup before. We will look into replacing kitchen utensils. Again we are sorry to hear that you were less than 100% satisfied as we hold our standards very high.

This place is even more beautiful that the pictures show.
Our family loved our stay at Owl's Head. The place was beautifully decorated with something to look at in every nook. It was well stocked with linens, towels, and all the things you would need away from home. The outside deck and back yard had comfortable seating and was expertly landscaped. We loved being walking distance to the light house and had an easy drive to local restaurants and shops. We all agreed that we cannot wait to return to Maine and stay here again.
