THE SANDPIPER: A COZY BEACHFRONT COTTAGE WITH SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS

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.

About Kathie and Bob Price

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.

Kathie and Bob Price purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Kathie and Bob Price chose Jonesport

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Coziest Cottage Around!

  • 5 of 5
First I must start by saying that Sandy River Beach is a beautiful, special place! I could not possibly say enough wonderful things about The Sandpiper! It's super cozy, clean and well equipped! The kitchen and living room lay out is spacious, and the bedrooms are removed just perfectly enough so that when our girls go to bed at night, my husband and I can still enjoy a nice evening together without having to tip toe around. We love to eat on the deck and the yard in front is also a great spot for our girls to play while they wait for us to get ready to go down to the beach! The beach is absolutely glorious-not crowded at all! I love being able to watch our children run the length of the beach freely! It's our family time and we cherish every second we're there! And every year as we leave, we're already looking forward to the following year's visit!

The best place to unwind and unplug

  • 5 of 5
We LOVE the sandpiper. Our family of six has now stayed twice at this beautiful beachfront cottage. The view is stunning, the house is cozy, clean and charming. The kids could spend all day playing on the beach or kayaking in the tidal marsh behind the house. The beach and views are so relaxing, I could just spend the whole day staring out into the ocean letting all the stress and tension of our fast paced life just slip away. On rainy days (which were very few although this is Maine after all) we put a fire in the wood burning stove and played games all afternoon. There is a DVD player for those that don't want to fully unplug and an assortment of movies available for viewing.

There are so many great places to visit in the area and trails with stunning views. The owners family live right next door and are always ready with helpful advice about the region...like where to buy fresh off the boat seafood, which the kitchen is fully equipped to cook! It even has a lobster pot and YES we did make lobster. We also managed to find a farmers market in Machias (about 20 minutes away) and an amazing goat farm that sells cheese just up the road.

If you are looking for a place on the beach away from all the hustle and bustle, then this is your place. They way life should be...

Some of the best memories!!!

  • 5 of 5
I have so much I'd like to say about our stay at the Sandpiper. First of all I'd like to say that the pictures do not do this cozy and charming cottage justice. It's very clean and very comfortable. Kathie, Bob and John are exceptional hosts. Some of the friendliest people we have ever met. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the bench with our coffee every morning before our kids woke up. With an occasional conversation with Bob about our previous day's travels. The town is very small, but you are only about 20 minutes away from everything. We loved the small town and the private feeling you had, especially on the beach. Our kids loved looking for rocks and sea glass every chance they got. It was such a different beach experience than they were used to. My husband and I renewed our vows on the beach and it will be a day I will never forget. I hope and pray that our family is able to go back some day and I can only hope that it's at a time when Bob and Kathie are in town. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. The Sandpiper is a great place to stay.

Sandy River Beach is located 4 miles from the small and quaint fishing village of Jonesport, which touts being the 'lobster boat capital of the world'. Lobster boat races are part of the extensive July 4th celebration. Purchase lobsters, clams or mussels at the local wharfs to steam at the cottage. The local grocery stores offer all the accompaniments to complete your authentic 'downeast lobster feed'. Visit the local electric train display, the Downeast Institute shell fish hatchery, the Peabody Memorial library, the Sardine Museum, farmer’s market, the Hamilton Marine Hardware store and the Bay View takeout to experience the local flavor, or hike through Great Wass Island Nature Preserve to experience the coastal ecosystem at its best.

There are historical sites and attractions throughout this area of Downeast Maine, including an original 1940's movie theatre in Millbridge featuring the latest movies, the Historic Burnham Tavern (1770) and the annual Blueberry festival in Machias, in August.

Whalewatching, a number of 9 hole golf courses, Campobello Island (summer home of Franklin D. Roosevelt), Quoddy Head Lighthouse and state park, and the Bar Harbor Acadia National Park regions are each 20-90 minute drives from Sandy River Beach.
