LIGHT FILLED COTTAGE, WATER ACCESS, PETS OK, ARTIST'S RETREAT

Roque Bluffs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

WaterColor Cottage in beautiful Roque Bluffs, Maine, offers guests a unique coastal vacation experience. WaterColor is the owners' second home and artist's/writer's retreat, lovingly maintained and generously shared with our guests.

As our guest, you will enjoy the art -filled open living areas, beautiful hand-crafted furnishings, quality linens and kitchen ware, perennial gardens and stone patio tucked into a fenced backyard. In the evenings, light a fire in the wood stove before venturing out to the garden to view the stars and late summer meteor showers.

WaterColor Cottage, across the lane from Little Kennebec Bay, has easy access for launching a kayak or canoe, or simply sitting on the rocks watching the eagles soar and the seals play. Enjoy a hike through the woods, past blueberry barrens, and along the shore -- all from your front door.

Just seven miles from Machias, our vacation home is for rent by owner and located outside of the crowds, close to nature, and within minutes of East Machias, Machiasport, Jonesport, and Cutler. Day trips to Jonesport, Eastport, Lubec, Campobello, and Acadia offer visitors a distinctive Down East vacation experience.

Another wonderful stay at the WaterColor Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is my second time staying at the WaterColor Cottage, which I loved the first time, when I was with my brother and nephew, and I loved it this time, too! The first time was during a
heat wave a year ago, and still it was more than comfortable. This year the weather was idyllic and the cottage is rustic without being primitive, artful without being fussy, and everything was lovely and comfortable. For conscious and conscientious people. A true retreat.

Relaxing, well equipped, quiet, very dog friendly

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed my stay at Water Color cottage. The owners are very gracious and communications were excellent. The fenced in back yard was terrific for my dog. Lots of pleasant touches throughout the house. A great guidebook to the local area was much appreciated. The house is a bit off the beaten track so you'll want to plan ahead for in town errands. But it's close to so much of the gorgeous sights of Downeast. Many day trips are within an hour or two. I loved my stay!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay at WaterColor Cottage! Yes, we are happily off the beaten path, with flower gardens, a confetti of lobster pot buoys in lovely Little Kennebec Bay, ocean breezes, Hope Island, and wildlife galore -- all within sight of the cottage dooryard. Yet, town is just six miles away (but still no traffic lights or traffic jams.) We hope you'll join us in lovely downeast Main again!
