Jonesport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cozy,comfortable, bright, light open floor plan. 3 B/R, 2 bath, sleeps 6.

6 miles from authentic lobster villages of Jonesport & Beals Island. Cottage setting is rural, private and peaceful. Spectacular ocean views. View the stunning sunrise on your own private deck. Amazing night sky without light pollution. Watch bald eagles soar overhead, shorebirds in abundance, occasional seals playing and sunning. Located on the Great Bar - at low tide walk out and harvest your own fresh mussels or just enjoy your own private beach. Watch lobster boats at work on the water. 15 miles to Roque Bluff State Park with sandy beach and hiking trails. 15 miles to Machias - UMM campus, Summer Machias Bay Chamber Series in July/Aug., Blueberry Festival in August. 80 mi/1.5 hour drive to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park depending on traffic or 45 min. to Winter Harbor ferry to Bar Harbor. 50 miles to Lubec/Campobello Island.

This is an ideal location if you are looking to get away from the crowds and traffic jams of so many summer tourist locations. It is like stepping back in time to a slower, unhurried pace.

Cottage is clean and well cared for; we hope you will treat it with care if you stay with us. It is a very special place. It was our vacation retreat until we built a retirement home nearby and moved here full time in 2007.

Comments from our guestbook:

'There are so many choices these days when you’re going somewhere to stay... You plan and dream through the winter and spring. The excitement builds as each work day goes past. It’s so nice when life exceeds your expectations' which this place surely has done. Thanks for the memories…'

'After two fairly good trips to Acadia a few years back, this was a nice change from the crowds…Your place is absolutely beautiful as others have already stated, we couldn’t ask for anything more…'

'What a dream - three weeks to decompress Down East with good friends and enough time on my own to truly explore…I’ve loved discovering the heath, bogs & islands - peeling away the layers to better understand Jonesport life and then to come home to this fabulous indoor/outdoor house…'

'Thank you so much for the best Maine vacation we’ve ever had. See you next year…'

'When we walked in the front door, our highest hopes were immediately exceeded by the view of the cove. The magical feeling never left us for the entire week of our stay…It was a week to remember; one which we hope to repeat next year…'

Our third stay--the best ever!"

Our third stay--the best ever!"
  • 5 of 5
This is the third time we have stayed at this beautiful rental home on the edge of Chandler's Bay overlooking the Great Bar and Roque Island. This time we brought friends. There was plenty of room for four of us. As always, everything is thoughtfully arranged and set out for guests--a complete kitchen, tasteful decoration, lots of terrific information about the area (and the landlord answers any further questions about local stores, restaurants, things to do). They even have a blueberry field on their property--we had blueberry pancakes twice--and we picked up bags of mussels on the Great Bar and cooked them. Amazingly fresh and good!! If you are planning a trip to this most Down East part of Maine, theirs is the place to stay. We will definitely be back!

Modern, classy and comfy.

Mary maintains a comfortable and well appointed cottage. As soon as you turn onto the private drive, you realize you're staying in a special Downeast hide-away. You really can't beat the value or the view.

Paradise Regained

  • 5 of 5
The cottage description doesn't do it justice. It is absolutely impeccible. Looks brand new with everything you need for a super, relaxing vacation. Waking up in either of the beds result in spectacular views. Spent every morning having coffee enjoying the view. Mary and Bill provided a wealth of local knowledge. Propane lobster cooker provided for the $3.50/lb lobster!! :-) Can't think of a better place to kick back, relax, unwind and enjoy life. Cindy & Jon

Wonderful

We first stayed here two years ago and returned this summer as we loved it so much. The cottage is a lovely place to stay - a home away from home.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay and it was even better than the first. The view is amazing, sunrises spectacular and we could not ask for more privacy. From the deck we saw eagles, osprey and this year seals. There are few restaurants close by but lobster is available on the docks in several nearby places. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything we needed and more to make wonderful locally sourced meals. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone seeking a quiet, scenic getaway.

Beautiful home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed here for 2 weeks in mid-July. The house is just as nice as it looks on the rental site. It is located very central to a number of area attractions. We even had a couple of family members stay for a few days, and it still didn't feel crowded. Walking the Great Bar at low tide was a thrill for the kids. Lobster aplenty is available for purchase just a few miles away. While we were able to gather all the mussels we could eat right from the ocean. The owners were very easy to work with as well. I would recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a nice oceanfront location, at a very reasonable price.
