We rented this house for two months in 2014. So comfortable, clean and spacious with a great view and beach. The house has all of the amenities and a well stocked kitchen. Being close to Roque Bluffs State Park, Jasper Beach and many more beautiful places kept us entertained even while we had our own beautiful place to relax in total quiet and privacy. Lots of hiking in this region and plenty to do outdoors. Machias is close for shopping and eating out but you're only an hour from Bar Harbor and Acadia. We were also close to Calais at the Canadian border, and Campebello Island across the bridge from Lubec. Such a beautiful area! And dark enough for night sky photography. With this wonderful house, this was the perfect place for our photography and painting endeavors and we would go again without hesitation. Jim, the caretaker, was very helpful and personable and gave us lots of ideas of places to see and we now consider him, along with the owners, to be friends.
