Overview

Addison Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom, one bath, 75 feet from the shore

Located in South Addison, a quiet lobster fishing village, the cottage contains a living/dining area, galley kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a year-round porch leading onto an outside deck with a gas grill. The bathroom/utility room has a shower, sink, and toilet. The downstairs bedroom contains two twin beds. The loft has two twin beds. There is a futon on the year-round porch that makes into a full size bed.

High tide is a good time to explore with the two kayaks provided. Bring your camera for once in a lifetime shots of the local wildlife.

This is a great spot to watch osprey and eagles looking for fish. When the lobsters are shedding their shells, it attracts seals that can be seen in the harbor. Shore birds abound during the spring and fall migration times. October is a prime time to see migrating ducks. Old squaw, teal, black, mallard and eider are most common. There is a 20-45X Bushnell spotting scope on the porch to enhance the views in the harbor.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Mary Rose Pray

John grew up in Massachusetts. I, Mary Rose, was raised in Minnesota. We met and married at Glacier National Park in Montana in 1973. In 1975 we moved to Maine.

Mary Rose Pray purchased this cottage in 1985

Why Mary Rose Pray chose Addison

We settled in central Maine in 1975. John's dream though was to be a lobster fisherman so we moved to Addison in 1985. The first time we saw this property we fell in love with the view. We call it our million dollar view! Our first summer there we built our little log home on the shore with the help of our three children. The picture above we took returning from an afternoon enjoying a water outing around Eastern Harbor. Always changing, the views outside our dining and porch windows are better than television!

What makes this cottage unique

Downeast Maine is a unique getaway that we always look forward coming home to. Now our nine grandchildren enjoy spending time at our cottage on the shore. We hope our guests find pleasure in the quiet and beauty of the area as much as we do.

An Idyllic Relaxing Rustic Rural Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Situated on inlet of the Atlantic Ocean, we found this cottage to be very idyllic. The location is rural and non touristy. It is quiet and tranquil, augmented by the call of seagulls and a glimpse of an eagle flying in the distance. The view of the tide coming in and out daily was very relaxing. Our daily walks afforded views of islands off the rugged Maine coast, with an occasional deer or two peering through the woods.

The cottage is rustic, but with all of the conveniences of home. It is well maintained and very clean, with the kitchen supplied with every utensil that you need for one’s culinary delights. The cottage comes with the convenience of a washer and dryer, which came in very handy for our three-week stay. The owners of the cottage are very congenial and willing to help with any concerns that you may have.

Internet access can be had about twelve miles away in Jonesport, either in the town library or just behind it when it is closed. Cell phone coverage seemed to be best about a mile away on the little causeway where one can get beautiful views of sunsets in the evening. The Navigator Restaurant, about twelve miles north, has an excellent menu.

In all, the cottage is a very cozy place. We had a wonderful time staying there. We would definitely recommend staying there to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Carl. We are glad you and your wife enjoyed your extended stay. I wanted to let future renters know that we removed the washer and dryer so that there would be enough water for every day needs. There are laundromats in nearby Machias and Milbridge. We also are adding a full-size futon to go along with the twin beds next season.

Great Location! Wonderful Neighbors

  • 4 of 5
We landed in Addison after a 5 week journey across the United States. It was heaven - the view is amazing. The property is secluded. The walk to Bernies Beach and down Cape Split Road was amazing - meeting wonderful people all the time. Except for an iron and board (my husband likes his clothes pressed), it had all we needed for a relaxing week. However, I will caution two things: The beds are very hard - I put my sleeping bag under the sheets for a softener. And the towels are old and should be replaced. Otherwise, I would return for a very special spot on this earth.

Best family vacation yet!

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely adored our stay at the cottage in Addison. It was our first visit to beautiful Maine--my husband, two young sons and our Aussie. We had our breakfast while Vivaldi's four seasons flooded from the open windows! We watched bald eagles and falcons feeding from the deck. We saw a porcupine in the yard and harbor seals and porpoise pods in the cove. We ate clams from the diggers in our backyard! We also ate almost 60 lbs. of glorious lobster! Cape split beach and sheep island were unforgettable. We kayaked and cooked on the beach--foraged for periwinkle snails and sautéed them in butter---amazing! I could go on and on...thank you so very much Mary rose pray! You are a gracious host and your land and cottage made a lasting impression on our family. We are truly missing the beautiful and unspoiled surroundings into which we had fully immersed ourselves. We are already planning for our return. This vacation in your cottage was the best vacation that the Nichols family has ever had! Thank you!!!

Very charming with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5
The cottage had everything you would need for a wonderful stay. We did not get the pleasure of meeting Mary Rose Pray in person but from all the phone conversations I had with her I can tell you that will never meet a nicer lady. We arrived at the same time the hurricane had come thru the area and the cottage had no power but Mary Rose very kindly refunded our money. Thank you again and we hope to return.

Most pleasant two weeks

  • 5 of 5
Quiet, great view, clams available to purchase from local diggers who use cottage shorefront at low tides, excellent dog walking area and red squirrels to entertain our dog. Site accurately described on web. Eagle nest on island to front of site often visited by its owner. Of the two kayaks, a single and a two seater, the single was used for a scenic ride along the shoreline and around the aforementioned large island. Great sunrise scene. Recommended for an enjoyable but austere stay.

A Downeast Maine Off the Grid Getaway

  • 4 of 5
This area is one of Maine's hidden gems. If you like being away from tourist and seeing Maine they way it was essentially for many years this is the place. Lobster boats, clam diggers and spectacular sunsets are all part of the experience. This is where eagles fly over the camp, a special bonus.

As to the camp itself, pretty well equipped, very clean, and comfortable, could use lobster tongs. I really enjoyed this vacation and had traveled 1,000 miles to get there. The owners have an interest in seeing that you enjoy your stay. I would recommend this especially for anyone wanting to kayak. A word of caution the fog comes quickly as does the SW wind.
Thanks

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Jim. Sorry you couldn't find the lobster tongs. I bought a new pair this spring and put them with the lobster pot and instructions for cooking lobsters.
