Wonderfully relaxing

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.

Now our summer is complete!

We live in a resort community and find it very difficult to get away. When we come to Winkle we officially close out our summer... in October!

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!

This was a pre-celebration of our 35th anniversary. Great lodging, great hostess! Pirate Festival was awesome, fishing very good, the early morning walks very scenic. Great base camp for our daily events. Met a lot of nice folks on my walks and on the pier. September is the best time to travel. Will return again.

Thanks!

Such an amazing area in a cute little cottage!

From the many hikes we had, to flying a kite, to cooking our hot dogs over the fire.... it was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy some quiet family time.

Our 4 year old son Logan had the time of his life.

Trisha and Bob, thank you for sharing your home with us!

It is by far lovely! Enjoyed the walks to the beach, tours and such. The cottage is amazing and so well equipped.
Hope to spend time here again. Nice to get away from the Florida scorching days of August.
Sally's lobster was great!! I took one of your paperbacks and left one in it's place.

See you again and many thanks!

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 seaglass 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.
