This cottage gets better every year. It is so cozy, complete and comfortable. If you cannot relax here, you simply can't relax. Winkle is theraputic.
Many thanks to the Fradettes for their warm, genuine hospitality and desire to deliver the best visitor experience ever!

New cottage overlooking Cobscook Bay and offering spectacular ocean views of Lubec and the islands. Watch the local fishermen in the bay. This cottage is very private and off the beaten path, yet close to many activities including numerous state parks, whale watching, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing and diving. Take a ferry to the islands, to Canada or to Lubec for the Summer Keys. The stargazing at this location is wonderful! Sunsets beautiful! Local entertainment and great restaurants, ice cream and fresh lobster a mile away. Quiet. Peaceful. An artists' delight. Clamming down the path is the best in the area.
