I am a bit of a jack of all trades. I am attending graduate school in neuroscience but have worked for a while as a general contractor.

Sage Aronson purchased this cabin in 1999

Our family built this house in 1999 after falling in love with the area and the people of Downeast Maine. I've gone up every year since!

The lobster is great and, if I happen to be up while you rent the house, I love taking folks out to haul traps (we have 15 in the coves around the cabin). Also, as a cyclist, the scenic Maine roads are some of the best.

Relaxing, oceanfront cottage

  • 5 of 5
Very relaxing, secluded cottage with gorgeous ocean frontage. The property is well maintained and comfortable. We have rented the cottage for 3 consecutive summers. The owner is friendly and easy to work with--no problems. The island has hiking trails and a marine biology institute that you can tour. It is a great getaway--away from all the tourist hustle and bustle. Gorgeous sunsets. Outdoor shower is wonderful! Our kids spend a great amount of time exploring at low tide. The cottage is supplied with all your basic needs in addition to games, books, and puzzles (we take very little with us on this trip). There is a grocery store on the mainland. It's only a 2 hour drive from Bangor Airport. Only recommendations for improvement would be a new toilet---the current one will run if the handle doesn't go all the way up after flushing and is quite low to the ground.

Relaxing and peaceful cabin!

  • 4 of 5
We had a relaxing two weeks! The cabin was well equipped, the perfect location with beautiful sunsets! The kids enjoyed exploring at low tide and swimming at high tide. If you are looking to get away from it all, the island and the surrounding area is the perfect place for you!

Beautiful cabin and attentive owners

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at this cabin on several occasions, and have come away impressed each time. Despite being in the middle of a small community where everyone seems to know everyone else (and even those residents who travel elsewhere in the winter always seem to come back each summer!), the property is secluded enough that one might never see any of its closest neighbors.

It is within an hour or two drive of most of the major tourism attractions in Downeast Maine (e.g. Mount Desert Island, Winter Harbor, etc.), but I never wanted to leave the area during any of my stays!

The cabin itself is beautiful and remains in excellent condition. The kitchen is well stocked, the bathroom is beautiful (as is the outside shower!), and there is ample room to sleep a multitude of guests.

Most importantly, the Aronsons were considerate and unimposing hosts who stayed nearby, and were available to address any and all of our concerns. They took us out lobstering, hiking, and showed us the best places to eat in the area. I definitely hope to return soon!

Spectacular Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a stellar Maine week at this cabin. The cabin was quiet, comfortable, well-maintained and obviously manged with loving attention. We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets, birdwatching, and proximity to wilderness and historic ports. The owners were attentive, well informed and generous. Kayaking, hiking, star gazing, delicious lobster, clams and mussels. Friendly community. Thanks for an unforgettable vacation! We will return!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful spot to get away from the craziness of the everyday. The cabin was rustic-ish and comfortable, yet had all the conveniences. The outdoor shower was all it was built up to be. We ate in every day (the gas propane tank was empty - only complaint) and enjoyed the lobster cooker. Not alot of choice if you want to dine out, only take-out in the immediate vicinity. Puzzles and reading in the evening. Hiking and exploring the region in the daytime. Enjoyed a cruise in the bay with Laura Fish. We enjoyed the quietness of the cabin, the island and the natural beauty of the region.

Sage was great in responding to all my inquiries. I would highly recommend this property to those looking for serenity and nature. We hope to return in a couple of years.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! It is true there isn't much in the way of restaurants until you go to Machias or Elsworth -- but the local seafood, meat, and produce is so great, I hardly ever go out when I'm up there too.

Peace and quiet with a view

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a quiet place on the water and I found it. If we hadn't gone exploring by car a few times, we wouldn't have seen another soul. This area is definitely away from the tourist centers on the coast. The cabin was comfortable and the views unmatched, especially at sunset. The ladders to the lofts were a bit steep for us but there was plenty of room downstairs. The owners were responsive to our needs during our stay (the propane tank needed to be refilled). The wireless internet worked very well and the outdoor shower was fun. The weather was clear and warm 5 days out of 7. We hiked the Little Cape Point trail in the wildlife preserve and made day trips up and down Rt. 1. There's a well-stocked grocery store in Jonesport and a wonderful bakery in Addison (Bohemian Mama's). It was a delightful and relaxing week.
