how amazing this place is so it is available when we want to return !!
My husband and I chose this place as our honeymoon destination and we wouldn't have picked any other place. Upon arriving to The Barn we were greeted by Betty, Eric and Sugar their lovely dog. Eric and Betty are very accommodating with ensuring the house has everything you need to feel right at home and that you feel as such.The Barn, which is clean and decorated to perfection has something to be admired with every turn, like the gorgeous wood burning stove, fire place and collection of antiquities. There is plenty of natural light that flows throughout the homes many windows. My favorite window was above the bed, great for sunny wake up calls and afternoon naps. Regardless of my favorite spot as you will surely find your own, wether it be by the outdoor fire pit, cozy inside stoking the fireplace or watching hummingbirds to go by as you sip your coffee by the large window.
As for Betty and Eric they are exceptional people who have put a lot of thought into the home to accomplish the perfect get away in our eyes. They have knowledge of the people, businesses and history of the Jonesport and Machias area. The towns may be small, but the people are very nice, the food is great and hitting the flea market on the Dyke was always a treasure hunt. Roque Bluff and Jasper Beach are great places to consider visiting. There is a grocery store about 12mi away that we visited once to stock up on snacks, beverages and staples for the week. Everything is about 12-15mi away so I would recommend planning your trips out wisely to save time. We didn't plan our days out necessarily and ended up asking the locals and Betty or Eric for recommendations. They lead us to the beaches for some hiking and then picked up amazing lobster from Mother Shucker's. Eric was kind enough to show us the technique of the lobster boil for our surf and turf dinner. My husband and I ended with drinks & s'mores by the fire pit, listening to the waves crash below and star gazing above.
To sum it up... We had such an amazing experience that as soon as we were back on the road home, we were already planning a return Summer trip!!
