Heron View lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5
Heron View Cottage should really be called heron, osprey, eagle, seal, egret, plover, sandpiper and more view Cottage!
Gorgeous setting, very sweet cottage, light streaming into virtually every room. Everything you might need from lobster pot, to coffee grinder, to CD's, to kayak to reading materials are provided. When planning your trip know that you will need to plan for many hours just sitting on the back deck, with a coffee in the morning and a glass of wine and local lobster in the evening, just drinking in the view. The coast road 191 from Cutler up to Quoddy has a number of nature preserves with hikes of 2-3 miles to the coast and back. Each one merits a picinic and a pair of binoculars.

Charming Heron View Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Heron View Cottage last summer was one of the best vacations we have had. My husband, our 9 year-old, and myself, had a very relaxing stay, getting out daily for Bold Coast hiking, beach combing & exploring, leisure drives, historic touring, and many more adventures. Yet each day we found ourselves returning earlier and earlier to Heron View. The cottage really is charming, filled with antiques and Americana. All that we needed to make our stay comfortable was there - and the town of Machias had all stores and amenities.
The sunrise is spectacular, especially when viewed from the enclosed porch overlooking the bay. Within a couple days, even my 9 year-old was up to join us for this early morning ritual. We used the cottage's kayak and ventured out on the bay a couple times, warmed up by the fireplace after a few rainy outings, and even kicked back with some board games. I was even overruled one day when planning a day trip, & was told that they preferred spending the day at the cottage - thus we each kicked backed in our own spaces reading and relaxing - the ultimate R & R. Heron View Cottage had that strong a pull on us. And, yes, we are returning this summer. It's a bit of a long drive for us to get there, but it certainly is worth it!
