Jonesport Cottage Rental Photos and Description
The Sandpiper offers 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, and sleeps 6
If you are looking for a relaxing and memorable vacation away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life; a vacation where you can reconnect with family or friends, or enjoy peaceful solitude, then you will find no better vacation spot than the cozy Sandpiper cottage, set across the lawn from the soft white sand of secluded Sandy River Beach; where the forest meets the sea, and nature abounds. You will enjoy magnificent ocean views and comfy accommodations. Our woodland, marsh, and beach offer discovery of a variety wildlife, including the occasional moose, deer, eagle, harbor seal or porpoise. Stroll the ½ mile sandy beach collecting sea glass and other treasures washed in by the gentling rolling waves. Explore tide-pools, the rockweed covered granite ledges, and the streams of our salt water estuary, finding tidal treasures. At low tide, hike across the sand bar to explore a nearby island. Or just relax on the beach, watching the lobster boats travel the bay hauling their daily catch, and the sailboats off in the distance. You can experience breathtaking sunrises, the spectacular glow of the moon as it rises over the ocean, and wonderfully starry, starry nights. Be lulled to sleep by the rolling ocean waves and evergreens blowing with the night time breeze.
The cozy Sandpiper cottage has an open floor plan, with well equipped kitchen and cooking island. The oven and stove-top are electric. The large dining table connects the kitchen with a spacious living room and each area has spectacular ocean views. The inviting living room has a wood stove, a well-stocked library, satellite TV, DVD player and CD stereo. The cottage has two cozy bedrooms each with double beds, a bunk-room with over/under single bunk beds, and a full bath. The spacious front deck offers an additional relaxing or entertaining area, and the large lawn provides space for family outdoor games and activities.
The Sandpiper is part of a family owned complex that includes 2 other rental cottages, and in addition to the private white sand beach also includes a 10 acre salt water marsh, a boat ramp and anchorage (26' boat maximum), all available for your use.

My brothers and I grew up in New England, visiting our grandparents at their cottage on Sandy River Beach every summer of our childhood, creating wonderful memories of the beach and our grandparents. Even after moving to California, the love of our time spent at the beach with our grandparents drew us back to Sandy River Beach as many summers as possible. As adults, my brothers returned to Jonesport, and they are an integral part of the Jonesport community. I have continued to return to Sandy River Beach each summer, with my California husband, our children, and now our grandchildren in tow. In 1991 my husband and I purchased the Sandpiper cottage, adjacent to my grandparent's cottages. We have spent many summer vacations renovating it, and renting it to wonderful families, many of whom carry on a family tradition of annually renting cottages from our family, some dating as far back as the 1950s.
The Sandpiper is one of the few cottages in Jonesport that sits directly on a private sand beach; and the only one on property with access to a private estuary and boat launch right on the property. The combination of fresh and salt water areas offers our visiting families a fun and unique water play experience. The estuary also offers a wider variety of wild life viewing for our nature admiring quests.
The Sandpiper is still rather rustic, but all who stay here fall in love with what has become known as the 'cute and cozy' Sandpiper. My brothers live on the adjacent properties to the Sandpiper, and my older brother provides onsite management and local 'flavor'' for our guests. My nephew who is a lobster fisherman will deliver the 'lobsters to order' to your door!!!
I have inherited my grandparent's summer cottage right next door, and it is also for rent for part of the summer. We have a third rental cottage on the property as well, and families sometimes rent 2 or all 3 cottages for family reunions or for vacations with friends.
