This peaceful and relaxing Scandinavian-style Maine cottage/retreat sits on five private and secluded acres on the shore of a beautiful tidal ocean cove in Owls Head, Maine. A great house to share with family and friends!
Welcome To Birch Point Cottage!
Recently restored, this light and airy post-and-beam barn-style home is a perfect blend of European style and Maine craftsmanship. The entire house can be rented for a comfortable, relaxing stay on the coast of Maine, and features 3 large bedrooms, 2 full baths, an open spacious floor plan, and great water views and access.
Description: The main floor is a beautiful, comfortable, sunny, open living area consisting of a modern and fully equipped kitchen/dining room/living room with oiled white oak floors throughout. There are large windows offering water views of the tidal cove, and double doors that open onto a spacious deck, bringing the outdoors in. There is also a large den/media room/library/office. Upstairs are 3 large airy bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, skylights, whitewashed rustic pine floors, and comfortable beds with quality linens. There are 2 full modern bathrooms- 1 up and one down, as well as an outdoor shower.
Bedroom 1 : (Master, 1 queen bed, upstairs, large).
Bedroom 2: (1 queen bed, upstairs, large)
Bedroom 3: (2 twin ex-long beds, upstairs, med size).
The outdoor area surrounding the home is nicely but simply landscaped, has an outdoor fire pit by the water, and ample lawn area to spread out, entertain, and play. Access to the tidal cove/water is 50 feet from the backdoor, offering swimming, kayaking, or paddle boarding steps from the house (water activities at high tide only, check tide charts).
This home is extremely private and secluded but also close to many area attractions and conveniences. Get away from it all and relax in a tranquil setting surrounded by nature, wildlife, and the beauty of the Maine coast. Appealing in both winter and summer, this is truly a unique and beautiful property and setting with a casual, comfortable, laid-back Scandinavian-inspired coastal living style!

My home is a continued source of enjoyment and inspiration for me, and I am very happy to be able to share it with my Airbnb guests. I recently spent a good deal of time (ok, years!) renovating and remodeling this wonderful house. I wanted to create a place that was relaxing, light-filled, calm, serene, and surrounded by nature. Birch Point Cottage is just that!
I share my home with an Australian Cattle Dog, so I understand if you want to bring your pet with you. Well behaved dogs are most welcome! I want your visit to Maine to be a great one, and can make recommendations for interesting places to go, restaurants, hikes, etc.
Welcome! I look forward to meeting you, and hope your stay at my home in Maine is a pleasurable one!
