We had the most amazing time at this cottage. Everything was exactly as described. We walked on the bar almost every day at low tide. Cooked lobsters, crabs, and mussels. Everything we needed was there and accessible for us. Hiked Great Wass Conservatory and highly recommend it to all. Visited some islands thanks to a personal friend with a lobster boat. Easy access to Bar Harbor as well.
Possibly the best vacation our family has had. Definitely considering a return trip next year.
Perfect Beach Cottage
Our family of 4 stayed for a week at this beautiful cottage. Mary & Bill are the perfect hosts & thought of everything to make guests feel at home. I'll start by saying - it's spotless. Kitchen is fully stocked - we cooked almost night and even used the lobster pot. The cottage has anything else you may need for a great stay (books, outdoor chairs, extra blankets, telescope, games, cable, grill, etc.). Wifi worked perfectly for my hubby who had to do a little work. There was more than enough room for our family. Expansive water view from the back of the home was amazing & peaceful. We enjoyed walks on the Great Bar at low tide behind the cottage. My 7 yr old loved collecting stones and looking for sea glass (we found a few pieces) on the bar. We saw a fox, porcupines, and fireflies at night. We loved that the cottage is quiet, away from the tourist crowds, and gave us a true feel for Maine living. Although away from the crowds, it was still close enough for some great day trips - we went to Bar Harbor & Acadia (about 1 1/2 hrs away), hiked the Bold Coast, West Quoddy, saw puffins & seals with Robertson's Boat Tours in Milbridge (highly recommend), and spent a couple days just relaxing at the cottage and exploring Jonesport. Also, the closest grocery is a convenient 20 min away. The reservation process and communication was wonderful and easy. I highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a clean, relaxing, coastal cottage in Maine with wonderful hosts. We hope to be back again some day.
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again in the future.
Amazing Stay in Jonesport
I was initially hesitant when I saw all of the 5 star reviews. But I am a believer in this property. My wife and I have visited Maine two other times, both in the lower parts of Maine, and wanted to show friends what Maine was all about. So we decided to stay in Jonesport which is as far north in Maine as we could go and still reach destinations like Bar Harbor.
The property was as advertised and Mary was a great hostess. The property was flawless and provided everything we could have asked for and more. Well stocked with everything we needed to cook lobster each and every night! The weather was picture perfect so we had plenty of opportunity to lounge and visit with our friends. The views were amazing and the tidal range this far north was massive and fun to watch.
We had a day trip to Canada and it was only 1 1/2 hours away. Bucket list item complete. Lobsters found at Beal Island were as cheap and wonderful as we could have asked for. We went to Barney's Cove for our lobster and fell in love with Garrett and his Uncle who made our multiple visits informative and fun! We ate lobster for 6 days!!
Stay here out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the tourist traps. The locals are friendly and welcome visitors. On many occasions we were thanked for staying so far north in Maine. The only downside was that we did not have an opportunity to see the neighbor's Mastif during our stay...maybe next time!!
So pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Downeast and that you liked the cottage.. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review!
Lovely cottage by the sea, with all the amenities. The cottage is spotlessly clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The view is spectacular! Can’t wait to return.
We loved having you as guests.
Very nice, great views, very gracious host
My wife and another couple spent 4 nights in early October. The house was exactly as represented, spotlessly clean, and in a beautiful piece of the Maine coast. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to spend time in an oceanfront house.
Enjoy the real 'Down East' Maine. Located near a lobstering village with working harbor and public boat dock. Buy lobsters at the local pound on the docks. Hike Nature Conservancy hiking trails on nearby Great Wass Island (15 min). Boat tours to Machias Seal Island to see Puffins. Less than an hour’s drive to Schoodic Point, the less visited side of Acadia with crashing surf and more hiking opportunities. Enjoy 4th of July in Jonesport complete with Lobster Boat Races. Visit the Machias Blueberry Festival in August. Art and music events nearby during summer season. Local public library hosts several events including Music in the Library and local Artist Receptions. Splendid, quiet, peaceful location- away from the crowds!
