Other things to note
Be careful if backing out of the driveway on to Ballyhac road on sunny days. While it is a very quiet street, on sunny days people go to beach at the end of the road, so expect more vehicles at those times than evening through morning.

I was born and raised in Owls Head know the land and waterways inside out, I also have roots in the local Finnish community of Owls Head, Rockland and South Thomaston. I attended college at the Evergreen State College in Washington state, and then graduate school at Rutgers University. In between, I lived and worked in Köln Germany and then Budapest Hungary. After working in Europe I returned to Maine, where I live in Lewiston with my wife Kati (a native of Budapest Hungary) and son, Kelen and our three Mini Schnauzers, Fred, Blossom and Harry who are all rescue dogs. I have a broad range of interests from gardening, fly fishing to thermo-electrics, fine arts, tiny homes and motorcycles. At our cottage you will see many things reflective of a coastal Maine and Scandinavian background, indeed our cottage is similar to my cousins cottage in Finland. We built our cottage in my home town of Owls Head to relax and enjoy the way life should be, we hope you enjoy your time at our cottage as much as we do.
