Jonesport House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom upstairs + half bathroom downstairs, sleeps 6

Stay in this heirloom 1906 Queen Anne Victorian oceanfront home on the Moosebec Reach at the edge of historic Jonesport, a working lobstering village in quaint Downeast Maine.

Wake up each morning to the rising sun and the sound of lobster boats. Walk out the door and have your morning coffee at your own private beach. Stroll down to a nearby lobster coop to pick inexpensive fresh lobster for your dinner to go with the local blueberries (Washington County produces 80% of the nation's blueberries!) to bake into pies and pancakes or just to eat by the handfuls.

In the evenings, watch the sun set over the water of the Moosebec Reach and savor the reflections on the water of Beals and Great Wass Islands. This historic waterfront Victorian house, which has been restored and equipped with antiques as well as with modern appliances, is perfect for families wanting to stay in an architectural gem by the ocean.

Jonesport is close to Machias, home to the Blueberry Festival in August, as well as the Historic Burnham Tavern (1770) and the University of Maine with its fitness center open to the public. There are extensive opportunities for antiquing in Jonesport and the surrounding areas.

Picture Perfect View!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to spend 5 days in this beautiful water front home. The pictures do not do it justice! This home has maintained its original beauty while being updated to be functional today. Every room has amazing views, with several of them being beautiful water front views. The beds are very comfortable, and I very much enjoyed soaking in the claw foot tub in the evenings. The kitchen was large and had very nice appliances, which I took advantage of every night! My kids loved when the tide was low, searching for shells and sea glass. We took a day and went to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, which was wonderful as well. I highly recommend this house, as it's a perfect place to relax and truly vacation!!

Perfect Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

This was ideal spot for our week in late September. There didn't seem to be any other tourists in town during our week long stay. The locals were extremely nice and somewhat amused by the California dudes wearing shorts and taking pictures. This area has the charms of small town USA. We walked over to Barney's Cove to buy some lobsters and crabs right off the boat. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything necessary to cook our new found friends. The house had spectacular views of the bay and we could watch the lobster boats coming and going. If you want to get away from the urban hustle and bustle, this is the place for you.

Fabulous Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family stayed in this beautiful rental for the Labor Day Weekend. Can't say enough nice things about this waterfront home. We were all impressed with the architecture of the building but the best part was the wonderful ocean views.

We are planning to rent again when we can spend more time!

Unwind Off the Tourist Path

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your clean and well maintained home with us. We appreciate the care you've taken to furnish it with beautiful antiques appropriate to the period. And the sweeping views, especially from the master bedroom and kitchen, are outstanding. We found Jonesport to be wonderfully non-comercial with the locals friendly, helpful and welcoming. Walking and biking around the area were some of the things that we enjoyed most. Beach combing at low tide was another treat. Our stay was relaxing and refreshing. Thanks again!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

This stunning home took us back in time 100 years ago. We enjoyed our stay which was nearly 3 months long and almost did not leave! The view is incrediable from every window in the house. The tin ceiling in the dinning room is stunning as is all of the original light fixtures and antique furnishings. We highly recommend this gem of a place to stay while in Jonesport as it is in walking distance to everything you could possibly need. Enjoy!

A GEM!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house -- it is an architectural gem. I loved my morning coffee on the Adirondack chairs in the yard taking in the views and reading. We picked blueberries - delicious! The kids loved taking the tour to see the puffins. We hiked nearby and visited Mt. Desert Island. It goes without saying the lobster are always great around here. We hope to back next summer!

Visit Jonesport in un-touristed Downeast Maine where life in a lobstering village hasn't changed much over the years. Across the bridge from us are historic Beals Island and Great Wass Island Preserve with hiking trails and miles of shoreline. It is only a short drive to grocery stores, hardware stores, ATMs, and small local restaurants. More high-end restaurants are a 20-30 minute drive away. Explore the Cherryfield Historic District with its amazing range of 18th and 19th century architecture. Take a boat tour of remote islands to observe puffins in their native habitat or visit island lighthouses. Jonesport even has a sardine factory museum! Don't miss the Jonesport Lobster Boat Races in July, the Machias Blueberry Festival in August and the fall foliage in October! Visit the historic W. Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec which is the easternmost point in the U.S. The Roosevelt Campobello International Park (summer home of FDR) and Canada are just an hour and a half away by car.

Other Activities: walking in nature preserve on Great Wass Island
