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!
