Downeast and Acadia House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms sleeps 6-10

Enjoy the best that Coastal Maine living has to offer! This 3BR, 2BA was built in 2005 and has over 2400 sq ft of open living space, situated on 7 acres of wooded land overlooking 650 feet of shoreline on Holmes Bay. Minutes from both Cutler and Machias, this secluded home has a large deck that offers quiet yet stunning views of sunsets, migratory birds, and beautiful ocean waves. The home is right on the coast, with direct access to the shores for beach combing. With the natural beauty of the surrounding area, you will be able to stay connected to the rest of the world (if you so choose!) with cable TV and DVD in every bedroom. The house is state of the art with WiFi Internet for laptops. There is a master bedroom on the first floor connected to a full bath, and both bedrooms on the second floor (one king bed, one queen bed) have daybeds for children and a bathroom complete with Jacuzzi hot tub and dual vanities. With a sofa bed in the living room, this home can happily sleep 10 people.

Beach Access: As depicted in the photos, this property has its own private staircase to the beach. The stairs are located in the backyard just yards away from the back porch of the house.

Thanks for looking and we hope to hear from you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is ideal for relaxing and we had a good time. The area wasn't exactly what I had expected but we learned a lot about the neighboring villages and countryside. The weather was almost perfect and the sweatshirt and jacket never came out of the suitcase. The Property Manager was very helpful and friendly. In fact, everyone we met was friendly. The Riverside Inn serves a delicious dinner. It was great to get away and experience a different pace for a week.

Beautiful home in a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. The accommodations were very good. The home is in a beautiful setting right next to the bay - with its amazing tidal changes. Many great lakes in the area and streams - good fishing; and great places to hike and view the beautiful scenery. We had a wonderful time.

Peaceful, Private Downeast Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This is truly the perfect place to stay to explore the coast of Washington County from Jonesboro to Lubec. Coming from a rural area, we appreciated the private setting. Because of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust preserved lands , there are too many nearby trails along the shore in Cutler and Trescott to explore in just one week, so we hope to return.

Angela was very helpful and accommodating. I stayed at this rental for three and a half months while on a work assignment. The view was spectacular, the house was amazing and had literally anything and everything you could want.

Lovely holiday home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at your house in Cutler. The house was big and bright and was perfect for our large family. We enjoyed the rocky beach and mud flats down the stairs. We visited Lubec, Campobello Island, West Quoddy Light and trails as well as Roque Bluffs State Park. Lovely stay in a lovely house!

serenity now

  • 3 of 5

my wife and I enjoy getting away from the "big city" on our vacations and this was a perfect spot.

The house sits well off the main road and stands alone in the woods and waterfront. we would recommend the house to others and will certainly return if we are up in that area.

Car: necessary

Discover Downeast Maine from this beautiful, brand new home. Enjoy glacial erratics on the coast of Holmes Bay as well as the dramatic tides and beautiful sunsets. There is plenty to explore in nearby Cutler and Machias, and the area is filled with America’s history, and FDR’s summer home right next door on Campobello Island, Canada. Natural wonders, lighthouses, shopping, and a medley of dining choices await you. And did someone say lobster? It’s fresh off the boat and prepared to your liking. The coast offers whale watching, puffin watching and sea kayaking, while the many lakes boast exceptional canoeing, fishing and hunting opportunities. Hike, bike, climb, relax by the water’s edge or explore the nooks and crannies of the shoreline. It's an area filled with possibilities, seen and enjoyed by a large, comfortable new home strategically placed right in the middle of it all!
