Get away from the craziness of the pandemic to the state with one of the lowest Covid infection rates, especially in our little Knox County, Maine. Gather your family in our beautiful formal dining room and enjoy the beauty of the ocean in Midcoast Maine. A stay at Schooners Landing will surely make your vacation one of your most memorable. Located on over five private acres with 300 feet of shore frontage in the charming village of Owls Head, just minutes from Camden, Rockport, Rockland, museums, shops, restaurants and lighthouses, our home affords you a perfect destination for a family gathering or a get together of friends. With three levels, everyone can have their own space yet share memories laughing and visiting together. There are water and lighthouse views from every room.
Enjoy the many summer festivals or come for the 4th of July and sit on the deck and take in the fireworks going off over the water!
The modern house which was built with characteristic New England charm, is classic shingle-style architecture with much detailed interior woodwork and three stories containing approximately 5,500 square feet of living space with large oversized rooms. Windows and decks take in the spectacular sunrises, passing sail boats, lobster boats pulling up their traps just off the front deck and lighthouses. Rockland harbor to the north is home to the country's largest fleet of tall masted sailing ships and many pass by the house each day. The house sits at the end of a 750 foot long driveway. A small stream runs year round through the property through evergreens and apple trees. The house is private yet not isolated like many Maine rentals that force you to take a lengthy drive to shopping and dining. You enter through an antique leaded glass and oak door and as you stand in the large entryway, to your left through double glass doors is the formal dining room with seating for eight with a side door to a pantry area and the kitchen. The library/den is on your right. Straight ahead is the kitchen with a large eating area, granite counter tops, sitting area, television, gas log stove with antique oak mantle, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, five burner Viking gas cooktop, electric oven, KitchenAid mixer, over 50 cookbooks, lighted cabinets with leaded glass doors, microwave, small wine refrigerator, lobster pots, etc. and everything else you need to cook a gourmet meal, a curved window looking out over the lawn to the water, and a six foot round table from Windsor Chairmakers in Lincolnville, Maine. Also straight ahead on the main floor is the living room with an antique marble fireplace, writing desk, two large couches, large binoculars mounted on a tripod, smart TV and sliding doors out to the curved 40 foot wide deck with great views of the Rockland breakwater and lighthouse, Seal Rock and Penobscot Bay. Also on the main floor is the master bedroom. It has a king size bed, sitting area with upholstered rockers, windows on three sides with wonderful views of the water, two walk in closets and two baths; one with a Jacuzzi tub, the other with a steam shower. Also on the main floor is the laundry area, the library/den with oak bookcases, desk, printer/fax and a couch to sit back on and look out over the water and enjoy a good book. There are over 650 books at the house.
The second floor has two oversize bedrooms and a large sitting area with television, VCR, DVD player and book case. Each bedroom has a king bed and a twin bed. Each bedroom also has its own bath with marble floors and oversized marble showers. Both bedrooms and the sitting area have lighthouse and water views. The second floor also has two decks, one with ocean views and one facing west with a seating area perfect for sunbathing in the afternoon or watching the sunsets.
The lower level has a fourth bedroom with a king size four poster bed and built in bookcase with smart television, DVD, VCR and windows all with water views, a large game room with pool table, Foosball table, antique bar, mini refrigerator, futon, two arcade games, round table for playing cards or doing puzzles, bookcase, electric fireplace, stereo and plenty of windows with water views and a double glass door opening to a stone patio with a swing and plenty of seating. Also in the lower level is our lodge room (a replica of a long cabin living room), an acoustically designed home theater with two levels of seating, a 65 inch smart television, DVD player and stereo. Lastly, on this level is a full bath with a two person whirlpool tub with 14 air jets and marble shower with a rain shower.
Enjoy walking along the rocky shore looking for seaglass or launching your kayak. You can also enjoy tranquil evenings sitting around our propane fire pit in the lawn by the water. We provide bicycles, golf clubs, fishing poles, tennis rackets, corn hole and plenty of outdoor games.
