PRIVATE OCEANFRONT HOME WITH GRAVEL BEACH NEAR ALL AMENITIES

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.

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."

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

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).

BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Sea Stones cottage. What a beautiful home-and it has everything a family might need for a week long vacation. The beds were so comfortable, and we appreciated the high quality bedding and towels. The kitchen is well-stocked with anything the cook might need, and we prepared many fresh lobster dinners, as well as homemade blueberry pancakes with blueberries that we picked from the yard. I can't say enough about the view! We spent many evenings on the deck enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine, and many mornings enjoying our coffee outdoors as the lobster boats went by. The beach is great for exploring and fishing. The house is perfectly located for excursions to Acadia, Bar Harbor, Lubec, etc. We even ventured into Canada and visited Campobello Island and watched the whales and porpoises in the Bay of Fundy-all within an hours drive of Sea Stones. We had one rainy day, and we spent it reading, playing games and watching videos (there is a large selection to choose from-even our 12 year old son found a book to enjoy-and didn't complain once about missing his XBox and computer!). No one wanted to leave when it came time to say good bye to Sea Stones-even the dog, who had a great week exploring new things and sniffing around on the beach! The house couldn't be better, and Helene is a pleasure to rent from! We will definitely be back!

PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT

What can we say?
This was our second time at Sea Stones House. The house is beautiful, totally
comfortable, and stocked with everything you need. It is so peaceful and the
privacy is quite remarkable. It is the place to go if you just want to do nothing but
watch the tides come and go. But it is also perfectly located to venture out and
explore "Down East" Maine. We found it extremely difficult to leave when our
time was up. We will surely be back again! Thank you, Helene and Jay for sharing
your little piece of Heaven with us.

PERFECT PLACE FOR AN AMAZING VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Stones......such a beautiful and serene location. A perfect place to relax! The house was so well stocked as stated, was beautifully decorated and very clean. And the town of Milbridge has many necessities at your fingertips. Our travel into Bar Harbor was superb for shopping, fishing and of course, the whale watching trip. Such an experience...the photos say it all. The entire family also enjoyed Acadia National Park with such amazing views....and the blueberries we picked at Cadillac Mountain, definitely an added bonus! Thank you to Helene & Jay for sharing this beautiful home with us. We have such great memories from this trip....ones to last a lifetime :) We will definitely return!

GREAT LOCATION AND LOVELY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house is exactly as described--quite private but convenient to necessities in Milbridge and located in a sweet spot between places such as Bar Harbor and Machias. We enjoyed exploring the Schoodic Peninsula, Roque Bluffs (bring your kite--we did and had a lovely flying session), Lubec and Quoddy Head Lighthouse. On a day when you stay at the house instead of taking a day trip you will have a beautiful view of the river and will hear the frog/peeper chorus. We have rented elsewhere in Maine on earlier vacations and this house is certainly one of the very best we have stayed in--do not hesitate to rent this great open plan house!

WONDERFUL HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four enjoyed a relaxing week in Milbridge. The house was perfect for us, with plenty of room and comfortable amenities. We spent hours exploring the beach right at our doorstep, and the scenery was breathtaking - especailly the sunsets! Milbridge is a quaint town and close enough to Ellsworth and Acadia for day trips. We look forward to returning soon!
