THE PERFECT ISLAND GETAWAY. A SECLUDED SPOT WITH A SPECTACULAR VIEW. 
The Halcyon Point property sits on the end of a quiet, private road. With spectacular views of Norton Island and the Atlantic from the deck, living room and upstairs balcony, you're never short of amazing eye candy even when it’s foggy. 

You’ll be assured frequent sightings of osprey, loons, deer, turkeys, and occasional bald eagles. Be sure to check out the stars at night too. Amazing. Nearby on the island, there is access to a private, rocky beach from which to launch kayaks and to take your dog swimming.  When it comes to meal time, with a well equipped kitchen, you’ll never have to leave. 
Halcyon Point is a secluded compound consisting of a main cottage and separate bedroom cottage 50 feet away.  

The property is located on Rackliff Island in the town of St George near the Village of Spruce Head Island. This island is accessible via a car-driven causeway. Private, yet close to Rockland, Thomaston and Camden, Rackliff Island is a popular vacation destination.

Rackliff Island was beautiful and quiet with a great view of the cove and ocean. The house was easy to find and had everything needed. The view of the ocean from the second floor was awesome. You could watch the lobstermen retrieve there lobsters and watch the fog roll in from the ocean. We even saw turkeys and deer on Norton Island.

It's a quiet lovely setting, with access to a rocky granite shore, nice view over the sea to the east and south, and protected from the wind by tall evergreens, mostly spruces. Access to the site on Rackliff Island is via a causeway and private roads. It's a relatively new structure with a modern kitchen, bedroom, and bath on the lower level, also a deck with grill and table with umbrella. The upper level also has a bed, and a comfortable couch with cable TV, and large windows with excellent sea views. A separate bungalow with a double bed and a single bunk is adjacent to the main house, ideal for children or young adults; however there is no bathroom in that structure. As we are an older retired couple, we did not have a use for that part of the arrangement.

Halcyon Point is genuinely delightful. The location is ideal, simultaneously relaxing and inviting. The house is well suited for an average sized family--the stockpile of board games on offer gives people a welcomed excuse to put away their phones and enjoy spending time with one another. Simply put, the place is terrific.

The view. It was all about the view. We arrived with things to do and great aspirations of getting them done. We got nothing done. No complaints. We just couldn't stop soaking up the view. Peaceful, tranquil and always beautiful. We never got tired of the view. We ate at home every night so we wouldn't be away from the view and comforts of home. Wonderful experience. Can't wait to come again.

Halcyon Point is a modern art work house, scandinavian in its clean geometry and sparse serenity. The siting and orientation of the modern house has been planned to catch the spectacular view of Norton Island just s short gull fly from the rocks below Halcyon Point, and the open ocean to the southeast. The fog comes in quietly at times, and then is gone as quickly. The layout o the rooms is unconventional, but chosen to keep the footprint small. We did not use the Guest House, but that looked equally as appealing.

Justin, the Owner of On the Water in Maine, is amazing in his knowledge of rental properties and his memory of renter names. It is very relaxing to have a telephone # dedicated to quick response of questions and problems. The office staff fielding calls are wonderfully friendly and personal.

The overwheming feature of Halcyon Point is its site and view. It is all in the name...tranquil. There is great privacy from the one neighboring property with residents. The master bedroom is large and comfortable, the kitchen very well supplied to produce and enjoy full meals on site. And always a distracting view while cooking! The lazy upstairs den is like a cozy treehouse for relaxing in the morning with coffee and maple scone from The Market Basket until the day's plans pull together and again in the evening to watch some news or a movie.
