The side of the house and the view from the front lawn.
This is the house as seen from the wharf.
The house is on ten acres of land and far from road noise, except the coming and going of the fishing boats at the distant wharf, and the sounds of gulls and waves. Everyone usually sleeps well because of the salt air and the silence. In the morning guests gather around the large table in the sunny dining room for breakfast. We have unique and interesting people who invariably find something in common. Often long discussions occur over lingering breakfasts. We serve a full breakfast in the dining room.
This is the sunny dining room.
We often have wild blueberry pancakes and apple sausage, or we have yogurt and orange french toast and canadian bacon, or we explore new dishes. If we do not have a full house an option is feta, black olive and green chile omelettes. Another standard is Owen House scrambled eggs and either bacon or sausage. We always have in addition fresh fruit, orange juice, muffins and toast and coffee or tea.
One of the many good things about the design of this old house is all the sitting space on the first
floor. There are two sitting rooms, a gallery/meeting space and a large sunroom
with TV and stereo. Also there are two large exterior porches that overlook the
water. There is plenty of space
to spread out and enjoy the house during your stay.
Nearly every room in the house has a fireplace, but we only use the first floor fireplaces because
we like to monitor their use.
Beyond the study is the watercolor gallery of owner Joyce Morrell. Owen House Gallery will soon have its own web page link here.
This is the sunroom with its beautiful fireplace, old ship models and panoramic view of the water.
Campobello Island is located just two
and one half hours north of Bar Harbor, Maine, and two and a half hours south of
St.John, New Brunswick, Canada. There are several restaurants in the area. The
Deer Island ferry leaves from the beach adjoining the Owen House. One can leave
the car and go on foot to Deer Island and Eastport for an inexpensive sea
journey. Campobello also has an excellent golf course. Owen House is on the same
cove as the Roosevelt Campobello International Park which has FDR's summer
"cottage" open to the public. The whole area has wonderful hiking in the
International park, the Provincial park and West Quoddy Head State park just
across the border.
Whales are often seen from East Quoddy lighthouse on the north end of the island.
