There are times when SharePoint can even deny the Site Owner to access his/her site. There are numerous reasons behind this issue but I just want to give you the solution. So here it is:

Step 1:

Run following stsadm command after replacing place holders, mentioned in <>, by actual values:

stsadm -o siteowner -url &lt;YourSiteUrl&gt; -ownerlogin &lt;Domain\AnyValidUser&gt;

 Step 2:

Run following stsadm command after replacing place holders, mentioned in <>, by actual values:

stsadm -o siteowner -url &lt;YourSiteUrl&gt; -ownerlogin &lt;Domain\SiteOwnerLogin&gt;

Thats it. Now access the site by Site Owner user and you will be allowed.
