Relax and enjoy your stay in the Sandy River Beach section of Historic Jonesport, Maine.
Enjoy the ever-changing panorama of sunrises and colorful sunsets in this laid-back non-commercial real-life fishing village.
Explore "Bar Island" - which is accessible by foot at Low Tide, or take a kayak out to the island at High Tide.
Observe a family of Bald Eagles who have nested on and returned to Bar Island year after year.
Enjoy bird watching right from the spacious, wrap-around deck, hike the sand beach, or try the many hiking trails that abound in the area, including the nature preserve on Great Wass Island located just over the Jonesport-Beals Bridge.
The choices for day trips include several famous lighthouses in the area, and featuring the often-photographed candy-striped tower at West Quoddy Head Light. Visiting President Franklin D. Roosevelt's summer home on Campobello Island is the culmination of a worthwhile day trip to nearby Lubec, with its quaint shops and eateries, and the Canadian Border.
Local "catch of the day" seafood can be purchased at the seafood Co-Op in the downtown area, as well as lots of great local produce at the local farmers markets, and daily specials at the largest local farm in the area.
Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are a short day trip, as well as historic Raye's Mustard Mill in Eastport -- the last true working stone ground mustard mill in the United States. It is still in use, and the workers LOVE to give the tour!!
Also very nearby is the Bartlett Maine Estate Winery...the first of its kind in the entire state of Maine.
All in all, Sandy River Beach is a very relaxing place to spend your vacation, yet not so far out of the way.
Ending each of your days with a nice glass of local wine while sitting on the porch swing keeps you wondering who is running the rest of the world.
