About Bethany Woods
I (Bethany) work at a non-profit in northeastern, coastal Maine and love all things outdoor and food-related! Favorite activities include hiking, island camping, vegetarian cooking, baking pies, xc skiing and snowshoeing, gardening, and satisfying the travel bug whenever I can. My husband, Clay, is a carpenter and builder, and we renovated this sweet place together. We're so excited to share it with visitors!
Bethany Woods purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Bethany Woods chose Milbridge
Downeast Maine is an incredible place. Maine's rugged coast provides endless possibilities for adventuring. (In our welcome packet, we've included many local places to explore that you won't necessarily find in a guidebook.) My husband grew up in Maine not far from Milbridge, and we're both attached to the area and community.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage sits just 20 feet from the bank that is filled with rosebushes in the summer. Being on a tidal waterfront means that at low tide clammers are out digging in the flats, and just 6 hours later at high tide, you might see a seal out in front of the house. Our south-facing cottage gets lots of sunlight all day, and all the windows really brighten up the main room. Other days, you can watch the fog rolling in over the islands in Narraguagus and Back Bay. The scene is always changing, but always beautiful.

Peaceful and lovely cottage
This little cottage was a perfect place for a week of hiking, kayaking and just relaxing with a glass of wine and enjoying the sunsets. Very well equipped kitchen, it is simple but has everything you need. My husband and I used our phones (AT&T has good service here) for hotspot internet, which worked very well. (Who needs TV anyway?). Milbridge is charming and the seafood is great (we were at Chipman’s Wharf to buy steamers every day). We saw bald eagles and seals while hiking and kayaking in Macchias Bay...we plan to come back for more. It was a perfect get-away. Thank you Bethany and Clay!

Cozy cottage - welcoming hosts
Our family loved our stay at this cottage. Bethany and Clay went out of their way to make us welcome and to stay in touch. The cottage is cozy and spotless! Perfect location as a starting point for Downeast adventures or relaxing by the bay. I would recommend this cabin for a romantic getaway or for some family time. This was our fourth rental in the area and by far our favorite. It is obvious that these owners are detail oriented and thought about everything when they updated it.
Nestled in the woods, large array of windows overlooks the back bay.
Lovely view of the bay. Saw several different kinds of shore birds. A real treat.
We, my husband and 2.5 old daughter, had a wonderful weekend and Seaside Cottage (Sunnyside as well)! The time spent there could not have been any more comfortable or pleasant! Probably the most restful vacation that we’ve ever had :)
The host, Bethany, kept in touch with us before our trip, making sure we’ve got directions, and also during our stay to make sure we were okay. The cottage is very well equipped, has everything you need and is tastefully decorated. Very comfortable! Owners provided a precise description of the place. The house is clean, warm and welcoming! So peaceful, green and quiet surroundings (the end of season, great time to visit Maine!)
There is also a guest book in house with all helpful information, what to do, where to eat, what to see... a perfect vacation for us!
Thanks so much Agnes! We really loved having you and were so glad your family had some quality time away. We hope you'll be able to come again soon for another visit!
Downeast Seaside Cottage was a wonderful vacation!
The property was very clean and well-maintained. Bethany & Clay provided all the necessary provisions for our week vacation to Maine. The location of the cottage was between Acadia National Park (Mount Desert Island) and Campobello, (Roosevelt"s Vacation Home) New Brunswick, Canada. After a busy sightseeing day it was nice to relax by the fire pit and watch the sun set over the bay.
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. We hope to be back again!
We are so glad you were able to enjoy the Downeast region! We hope you'll be able to visit again soon!
Wonderful home, perfect location!
This waterfront cottage was perfect! Situated about an hour from Ellsworth and Lubrec made this getaway perfect for site seeing. We enjoyed looking out over the water through al the windows and out near the fire pit. We will be back again!
Thanks for your kind words, and we hope to have you back again soon!
