Roque Bluffs House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, ON THE BEACH !
COME TO THE COAST, WHERE ITS NICE AND COOL !
'Tide Watch' is the destination for anyone who wants to experience the true flavor of Maine!
A lovingly restored Ocean Summer Farmhouse . Experience the best that a Maine vacation has to offer. Open the door of a wonderful home which has all the modern amenities, but maintains the cozy feel of a farmhouse from long ago. The hardwood floors and comfortable furniture invite you to curl up with a good book or sit on the spacious deck overlooking the ocean with a million dollar view.
Step into a sun room to have your morning coffee or take away the chill when the sun goes down.
The old fashioned sunlit kitchen has been beautifully renovated, to accommodate even the most accomplished chef, with hand tiled island, complete with a 5 burner gas stove, oven and dishwasher. While dinner simmers, retrieve your perfectly chilled wine and beverages from the wine cooler, to sit and watch the spectacular sunsets from the deck or NEW SCREENED ROOM. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large dining room with seating for six and is complete with a chandelier.
First floor also has a spacious master bedroom with full bathroom and shower, flat screen TV and its own private entrance.
Relax in the living room with a collection of lighthouses and watch a movie on the 52” HD TV with your own “home theater”!
Upstairs has a full bath with tub and shower. Four bedrooms appointed with comfortable beds, wonderful blankets and bed linens. Enjoy watching TV from both the queen bedrooms. Throw open the windows and listen to the crashing surf as it lulls you to sleep at night.
During the day, with the South West exposure, you and your family will enjoy the sun all day, while using the spacious grounds for rousing games of volleyball, badminton, croquet or just a old fashioned game of catch!
Listen to the wave’s crash on your own private beach. Descend the stairs and kayak, throw a Frisbee at low tide, or look for sea glass that has been washed ashore. Look for the seals basking in the sun on Gull Rock a few hundred yards from shore. As the eagles and sea gulls soar above, it is easy to feel as if you have moved to a different place in time……
In any season, on a clear night with over 1000 ft of shore front, and the Milky Way overhead, you will find yourself gazing at the sky, searching for the stars and planets you remembered as a child. Looking at the lighthouse beacon on one of the distant islands, you may find yourself wishing on a falling star.
Visitors here are only 40 minutes away from the West Quoody Head Lighthouse located in Lubec where guests can explore the lighthouse or hike the wonderful ocean trail.
The house is 1 1/2 hours from Bangor, 1½ hours from Bar Harbor, 4 hours from Portland, 5 1/2 hours from Boston, 11 hours from New York City, 45 minutes from Eastport, 40 minutes from Campobello Island, and 1 hour 15 minutes from St. Stephen, New Brunswick Canada.
Activities in the area include hiking trails at the Roque Bluffs State Park, along with its quarter mile oceanfront sandy beach and freshwater wading pond, which is stocked annually with brook trout and brown trout and can be fished for successfully right from shore. Close by are two golf courses in Roque Bluffs and in Jonesboro, guided sea kayaking trips with a company in Machias, Atlantic Puffin tours and spectacular coastal hiking trails out of Cutler harbor, antiquing in local fishing villages, viewing ancient Indian petrogyphs along the shoreline in nearby Machiasport, deep sea fishing tours from Eastport and ocean schooner sightseeing trips on the Sylvia Beal out of Eastport harbor and much more.
We are only 15 minutes from Machias with its shopping, restaurants, University pool and fitness center. There are also many featured hikes nearby including Cutler's Bold Coast and Western Head Trails as well as Great Wass Island's Nature Conservancy trails.
Tide Watch is a place to escape the stress and worries of daily life and imagine when times were simpler.

Why Lisa Tingley chose Roque Bluffs
We visited the the area and fell in Love with the towns beauty and the wonderful people ! The View, its all about THE View AND THE BEACH!
What makes this house unique
Watching the seals frolic on Gull rock , the kids playing pirates and hunters on the boulders and sand flats, and of course just sitting in the Adirondack chairs at the waters edge and sipping whatever!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank-you for opening up this truly beautiful home for others
to enjoy. The View is spectacular, so peaceful and serene.
Your home is so warm and inviting with all the comforts of
home. Walking the Beach was always an adventure for the
children to play on the rocks and swim when the tide was out.
Every-thing was perfect !
