We had an opportunity to rent a home in a more recognized location but chose this one because it's away from the tourist areas and it looked very comfortable; we definitely made the right decision.
The home itself is in outstanding condition, very clean and, again, comfortable. Anything you might have at home, including wifi, can be found here. We only had three but it could accommodate twice that with ease. The views are fantastic, enabling one to watch the harbor traffic and view out to the islands and open water. Bring a spotting scope, as we did, and you can see the light house that's way, way out on an island. We also had the resident bald eagle visit each day, perched on top of the pine tree 50 yards away; it was a sight that we never tired of and we welcomed the visit. The deck is a great place to sit in the morning while having your coffee, or anytime of day, really. The breeze keeps it cool and the bugs at bay.
The lobster wharf out front is the perfect spot to run down and get a bucket of lobsters for an incredibly reasonable price...and that's a huge understatement. We did it every day and despite as much lobster as I've had over the years, there is nothing like cooking ones that were caught but hours earlier.
Judy is wonderful owner and extremely helpful, while being available when you have a question but never being obtrusive. We really enjoyed the times we spoke with her...she's simply a lovely person.
Now, Jonesport is a great place if you want to get away from it all but it's not the place to go if you're looking to go out to dinner every night at an upscale restaurant. You're pretty far up the Maine coast, which is what we wanted and I highly encourage, but you're not going to find a mall, etc., nearby. What you will find, though, is a true harbor town focused on lobster, incredible beauty and a really, really nice home to chill out in and relax.
