Why Caryn Vinson chose Eastport
The Cottage has many unique features, among them being its age, location and history. The cottage was probably built in the late 1800's or early 1900's as a single family home. Over the years it has served as a workshop and rental property and was renovated about 20 years ago. Many of the original features were left untouched, such as the staircase and pitched roof.
The Cottage sits up on a bluff overlooking Shackford Cove (sometimes referred to as Houston's Cove in the histories), giving an excellent view of Canada and the Bay. Visitors frequently spot whales, seals, eagles, a wide variety of local birds, and herds of local deer while enjoying the broad deck.
Eastport is a unique historical attraction with many restored and protected commercial and residential properties. The July 4th and Salmon Festival events attract hundreds of participants from the region and from 'away.' Eastport is also a center for the arts in the region boasting many fine artists and galleries, as well as an arts center with regular performance throughout the year.
What makes this cottage unique
We enjoy providing visitors with advice on eating spots, ferries, parks, birding, dog trails and Canadian destinations. Visitors frequently find us enjoying a morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail on our deck with our two dogs, Ginger and Bailey.
The cottage is quiet and serene while remaining within walking distance of shops, restaurants and other entertainment.
