Milbridge House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 5-8)
This tranquil property is situated on the granite and sandy shore of the Narraguagus Bay at the end of Fickett's Point, in Milbridge. Sit on the comfortable waterfront deck and watch lobster and pleasure boats come in and out of the channel leading to the open ocean. At low tide, you can relax on your private beach to enjoy the view up close. The west-facing location will enchant you with spectacular sunsets. The center of town is conveniently located 2 miles away where you can find a well-stocked supermarket, movie theater, video rental store, to name a few. The surrounding area offers many opportunities to explore historical sites, state parks with beaches, and wildlife refuges with hiking trails. Acadia National Park is within driving distance for a day trip, as well as Quoddy Head State Park.
The spacious house has been newly renovated with fresh paint and new furniture. The decor is a blend of colorful seaside cottage style with contemporary flair. You'll find both a queen size and twin size sleeper in the living room and den (both very comfortable).
Come spend a week, or more, recharging your body and mind on the shore of our quiet Maine retreat.

About Helene Rush
When we purchased our second home last fall, we fulfilled our dream of owning a property on the ocean. The house is located 3 1/2 hours from our primary residence and unfortunately, we can't drive there every weekend. So although we plan on spending several weeks there throughout the year, we thought it made sense to offer it to others to enjoy, too.
We made some upgrades to the house, and added new furniture, beddings, kitchen tools, etc. (I am a bit of a weekend chef, so I like to have tools at my disposal). You'll even find a big pot, and nut crackers and picks so you can have your very own lobster feast right at the house!
Helene Rush purchased this house in 2008
Why Helene Rush chose Milbridge
When we looked around for properties, Milbridge soon became our main focus for location. The town is the largest you'll find halfway between Ellsworth and Machias, and offers pretty much everything you'd want (grocery store, small movie theater, medical center, etc.). Don't get me wrong, if you blink too long, you'll miss the town! It can be described as 'quaint.' I didn't feel like having to drive 10 miles just to get a loaf of bread.
Even though the town is just 2 miles away, the house is at the end of a point, so there is plenty of privacy, peace and quiet (you can't see the neighbors on either side).
Guestbook comments from the owner
From an emailed review I received from Andy: "A very spacious and comfortable house with all necessary amenities, even a day when it rained so persistently that we were unable to get out passed happily.
The location is excellent with great water front views from both lounge and decking. The sunsets are particularly spectacular and we have some great souvenir pictures.
The house and surrounding area are perfect for anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing holiday near the sea and we would be very happy to stay again at some point in the future."
