Bayview Cabin

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin


About the property

New Cedar Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Looking for solitude, great views, ocean breezes, fields, rugged coastline, and woods to explore? Then you will not be disappointed at this remote, 200-acre, former salt-water farm, situated on pristine Cobscook Bay. We offer a return to the past when life was much simpler, a restful, scenic location for relaxation and a remote setting not often found on the coast of Maine. Stroll along gravel beaches, explore the seaside trails and coves, enjoy the wildflowers, go fishing or clamming. We have bikes and kayaks for your use or just curl up on the porch with a good book. Watch the incredible sunrises and sunsets or just view the stars. However you spend your time, it will be an enjoyable experience.

Nature: At Birch Point you will rediscover nature. Famous for its bald eagle population, Cobscook Bay has some of the highest tides in the world. Sea birds such as loons, ducks, sandpipers, coot and terns abound. Wildlife such as moose, deer, rabbits and foxes may also be seen. Seals are often spotted on the low-tide ledges soaking up the sun.

  • 5 of 5

I do not think I have enough words to describe this magical slice of heaven. My son and I do a annual adventure trip yearly this was BY FAR the best one yet.. We stayed in the Sunrise Cabin absolutely perfect! Comfortable beds nice layout all the amentias one could ask for breath taking views from porch quiet peaceful..the perfect place to get back to 19 year old son is a TECHNO freak like all of this generation..we could have easily spent another month and missed none of that..this is where you come to unplug and reconnect! I cried when we left..not to be grim but put this place on your bucket list! Dick his wife and dog were the perfect hosts....I plan to return the sooner the better! Lori Adams

Crackling fire, moose, smell of balsam and pine

  • 5 of 5

What a special place! Even before we left, we were talking about making Birch Point a yearly tradition. Really good reasons to choose this property: CLEAN! (Always my #1 priority). We had everything we needed--plenty of towels, one of the best-stocked kitchens I've seen in ten years of renting along the Maine coast, comfortable beds, hot showers, firewood cut and stacked on the sunporch. Then there were all the extras that make a Maine coast vacation a ... well, a Maine coast vacation. Fantastic views over Cobscook Bay (we stayed in the Bay View cottage); a toasty fire crackling in the woodburner on chilly mornings and evenings; moose (sighted twice on the property during our stay); helpful owners who are delightful neighbors and there if you need them; and being surrounded constantly with the smell of balsam and pine.

A reason not to choose Birch Point: no electricity. If you must have television or extended hours on the computer, then this one is not for you. We, however, did not suffer! The almost-new cottage has very modern gas appliances and lights, and we give this property the very highest satisfaction rating. We'll be going back as soon as possible.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (four children ranging in age from 8 yrs to 22 yrs) had a fabulous time at this gem of a place. For the past nine years, we have traveled from the Boston area to vacation in Maine, and have sampled many fine cabins in many fine locations along the way . . . thus, it is no small compliment when we say that this is the best of the best!

The cottages are clean, well equipped, cosy, and spaced for privacy. Everything you would want is there: bedding, grill, kitchen supplies, modern refrig & shower, puzzles & games, woodstove. The decor is simple but charming, especially the quilts on the beds. The gas lights were fun to use and it was a wonderful experience to "get away from it all" and say goodbye to TV for a week. Dick was available and extremely helpful, but never hovering.

We went kayaking, hiking on the paths on the property, kept track of the bald eagle that flew over the bay, picked blueberries & made blueberry pie, drank coffee on the deck and enjoyed its amazing panoramic view. The children loved the bikes & kayaks provided with the cottage. For day trips we went mini-golfing and visited Campobello Island and St. Andrews-by-the Sea (both in Canada and well worth seeing). We spotted lighthouses everywhere, and lay out at night under the stars and saw the Milky Way. Favorite local foods were fresh corn on the cob & haddock and scallops. The kids checked out books from the historic library in Eastport and of course checked their emails there. (The town also has a convenient laundromat.) We heard from other vacationers that the sailboat out of Eastport is a "must do" for sighting whales & porpoises. We can't wait to see them for ourselves on next year's visit.

  • 5 of 5

We always have such a wonderful time at Birch Point. It is so great to escape from the heat and humidity in July and relax by the ocean. Love the walks on the beach and in the woods with our dog ,the swimming, clamming, kayaking, bird watching, etc. The cabins are always so clean and comfy and the views are breathtaking and ever-changing with the tides and the time of day--sunrises, sunsets, and stargazing are truly amazing. Even our 15-year-old found plenty to do. Can't wait to get back there again this summer!
