True to its name, Crow's Nest Cottage, almost a century old and located on land that has been in the same family since 1767, sits high up with a glorious view overlooking the sea (like the crow’s nest high on the mast of a schooner). Inside, its ceiling is crossed with log beams and is open to the roof above. Although rustic, it is refined in detail and decorated in a comfortable “Maine” style uniquely its own. Stone stairs lead from the parking area to the covered porch, peaceful and romantic, with a breathtaking view of East Penobscot Bay and Pumpkin Lighthouse. There are two bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with two twin beds, and a full bath. Off of the living room is a small office. The living room/dining room has an easy-to-use gas fireplace insert and hide-a-bed that sleeps one. The kitchen is complete with a gas stove, microwave, eating/cooking utensils, silverware and dishes. It has a refrigerator, toaster, drip coffee maker, electric hot water kettle, pots and pans and of course a lobster pot. There is a clothes washer and dryer. There is high speed Wi-fi, a land line, and automatic generator in case of power outage.  Guests are welcomed to use the private Ocean Swimming Beach, just a short walk down the hill, and the hiking trails of Lookout Rock. Please note: Animals cannot be accommodated.  A 5th person can be requested for an additional fee of $25/night.  

The owner retained Crow’s Nest Cottage when she sold the Oakland House to her husband’s cousins a few years ago. She and her husband ran the Oakland House for many years. Crow’s Nest was the largest of all the cottages and has the most amenities. Guests return year after year to this much-loved cottage.
