Great place to stay

We rented this beautiful home in Eastport, Maine in September, 2011. We made a very good choice. The photographs of the house and view are accurate.
First, the view of Passamaquoddy Bay and the islands is outstanding. The house is up on a bluff and you get a wonderful view from large windows on three sides of the house. From the East side of the house you get the sunrise and from the West a beautiful sunset. The whole front on the house (facing North) windows and a deck. On top of the house is another deck. This area is so interesting because the tides change on average of 18 feet. We live near Lake Michigan and the tides here are fascinating.
The house is clean, roomy, and well appointed. Everything you need is supplied. HD cable TV, a large library of CD’s, tapes, and a good wireless network give you a break from a perfect vacation spot for reading. If you like to read mystery books, Eastport has its own mystery writer. Sarah Graves’ books are fun, plus they talk about all places you find in town. Signed copies are available in town at S. L. Wadsworth and Sons, the local hardware store.
The town of Eastport is a real town with many good restaurants, a coffee shop, yummy bakery, hardware - plus plenty of stores for shopping. We ordered 2 lobsters cooked for takeout from Quoddy Bay Lobster. With just a little lemon and melted butter we had a wonderful meal. This house feels secluded and is very quiet but it is only a 15 minute walk to the middle of town.
We spent many days driving the coast. Do not miss Reversing Falls near Pembroke, a special place to see seals and eagles and a rapids running both ways as the tide changes.
We enjoyed our stay so much. We had planned to find another rental in another Maine coast community. We called and found that we could stay here for an additional 4 night. It worked out perfect for us.
The house has 3 bedrooms (queen, full, 2 twins) with full, equipped kitchen so would be great for a family. We also liked that there were several comfortable chairs for reading or watching TV. Because the house faces North, there is not a lot of sunshine inside, but the North facing windows give great light for reading.
