It's beauty, privacy, peacefulness... a perfect spot!
Spectacular views of Cobscook Bay by day and shimmering moonlight on the bay at night. Wildlife abounds, eagles soar, gulls sing. Whales visit the channel. Clamming is the best in the area. Peace and quiet. Dead-end road with no traffic. Stargazing is amazing... come and visit! Get first hand knowledge of all of the areas activities!
The quietude is just what the doctor ordered. Thank you for being a marvelous hostess, all your tips on where to go and what to see were perfect.
We look forward to our next visit!
This property is as good, or better, than it is represented in the description. My husband and I had the most relaxing week at this cottage. Some days we drove to attractions like Acadia. Others we simply lounged around and read.
We have had bad experiences in the past with online vacation rentals and were reluctant to take another chance. The owners put our fears to rest with their prompt communication and reliable follow through. The unit was very clean and everything was available for convenience and comfort.
So glad we made the trip. It was exactly what we needed and were expecting from the description. We will be smiling from our memories of this trip for a long time.
There are not enough superlatives to describe our stay at Winkle Two. We knew from the moment we pulled into the driveway until the moment we left that we had discovered a new slice of heaven. Pat and Bob couldn't have been more friendly and their love of the area more obvious. Each morning we headed out early to enjoy one of the many area attractions and by late afternoon we looked forward to returning to the tranquility of the cottage. Our week was magical. Winkle Two is an example of why Maine is described as "the way life should be"! We would return in a heartbeat! Thank you Julie and William
What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get and more! The Winkle is a beautiful cottage to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax! You are away from everything but driving distance to amazing sites! Our 4 year old son was in heaven the entire trip enjoying the outdoors and our hikes! Thank You again for having us enjoy your cottage!
Perfect place for a getaway!! Tricia and Bob have done a terrific job with the cottage. Everything is well thought out and laid out. Some much to do in the area - Campobello is phenomenal; we spent three days there exploring the island. There are some good restaurants in Eastport, but enjoyed being able to fix our own dinners and 'eat out' on the deck. Sue and I would definitely recommend Winkle for anyone loking to get away from it all. Thank you Bob and Tricia for being excellent hosts.
We had a great week at the Winkle Cottage. The hosts, Trisha and Robert could not have been nicer. I found the walks to "the beach" were a little different from that depicted in the photos, but that was fine. We had plenty to keep us busy.
The cottage is a great design and the decorations very well done. The stairs are another thing that I had not noticed in the literature and might be an issue for some.
All in all, we had a great stay and if in the area again would most likely re-book.
Winkle cottage is spotless and has whatever you need and then some. Patricia was a very thoughtful hostess but did not interfere with our privacy. We enjoyed day trips around the area to Eastport, Campobello and Deer islands and the Meddybemps lake area. Try Dasdardly Dicks in Eastport for great coffee and the New Friendly restaurant for home cooked meals. If you are looking for peace, quiet, a breeze from the bay and a starlit sky, Winkle will fit the bill.
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. Sunrise Rails to Trails was voted by AMC Magazine as one of the top ten biking trails in the Northeast and has entrance points a few miles from this cottage. The trail goes along the coast for biking and walking. Historic Eastport is a just a short drive offering the opportunity of seeing a real working seaport boasting one of the deepest ports in all of the east coast. Local shops feature sea glass jewelry and local art, among many other interesting items made by local crafters and resident artists. Be sure to stop in to see Raye's Mustard, the oldest working mustard mill in the country. Hiking is wonderful in this area where you can visit West and East Quoddy Head Lights, Shackford Head Park and the Bold Coast trails for spectacular sites.
