It's beauty, privacy, peacefulness... a perfect spot!
Spectacular views of Cobscook Bay by day and shimmering moonlight on the bay at night. Wildlife abounds, eagles soar, gulls sing. Whales visit the channel. Clamming is the best in the area. Peace and quiet. Dead-end road with no traffic. Stargazing is amazing... come and visit! Get first hand knowledge of all of the areas activities!
The quietude is just what the doctor ordered. Thank you for being a marvelous hostess, all your tips on where to go and what to see were perfect.
We look forward to our next visit!
This property is as good, or better, than it is represented in the description. My husband and I had the most relaxing week at this cottage. Some days we drove to attractions like Acadia. Others we simply lounged around and read.
We have had bad experiences in the past with online vacation rentals and were reluctant to take another chance. The owners put our fears to rest with their prompt communication and reliable follow through. The unit was very clean and everything was available for convenience and comfort.
So glad we made the trip. It was exactly what we needed and were expecting from the description. We will be smiling from our memories of this trip for a long time.
A very clean and well appointed cottage with beautiful views. The Winkle cottage is a delightful place to relax and enjoy the cool weather and great seafood of "down East Maine". In a day of sightseeing you can easily visit such places as Acadia National Park one of America's gems. We especially appreciated the quick responses we received from Trisha when we called with questions while planning our trip. All and all a great week in a great cottage with great hosts!!
If you are looking for a country cottage getaway this is the perfect place. Very comfy, cozy and exceptionally clean. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
The cottage is clean, well kept, has great living space and beautiful views! It is very peacefu land off the beaten path, but nearby restaurants and activities. It was a great home base for our vacation. Trisha and Bob are delightful hosts, they offered up ideas of where to go and what to do and were so nice and helpful. We will definitely stay there during our next visit to the area.
We spent a fun and relaxing week at Winkle cottage. It was spotless and very well appointed. Patricia and Bob are wonderful hosts.
We particularly enjoyed the soft shell lobsters at Eastport Chowder House. What a treat! We visited Campobello and "Tea with Eleanor" was a highlight.
If you are looking for a quiet getaway in Maine, this is the perfect spot. The cottage sits up on a second story with lovely views of the bay. It is one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed and was tastefully decorated. It exceed our expectations. The photos are good representations of the cottage, but it is even nicer in person. The Fradettes were great hosts, too!
The location is perfect for day trips to Lubec and Quoddy Head as well as New Brunswick attractions like Campobello Island and St. Andrews-by-the-sea. My husband and I were excited to discover in nearby Easport the Tides Institute and Museum of Art which hosts art installations and an artist residency program. Also close by are the reversing falls in Pembroke--not to be missed! We also squeezed in a trip to one of our favorite Maine spots for lobster and pie, Helen's Restaurant in Machias.
If you are looking for a clean, beautiful, quiet spot where you can read and relax, go on day trips in Maine and New Brunswick, or take beautiful hikes, this is the perfect spot. I highly recommend Winkle Cottage!
New cottage overlooking Cobscook Bay and offering spectacular ocean views of Lubec and the islands. Watch the local fishermen in the bay. This cottage is very private and off the beaten path, yet close to many activities including numerous state parks, whale watching, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing and diving. Take a ferry to the islands, to Canada or to Lubec for the Summer Keys. The stargazing at this location is wonderful! Sunsets beautiful! Local entertainment and great restaurants, ice cream and fresh lobster a mile away. Quiet. Peaceful. An artists' delight. Clamming down the path is the best in the area. Sunrise Rails to Trails was voted by AMC Magazine as one of the top ten biking trails in the Northeast and has entrance points a few miles from this cottage. The trail goes along the coast for biking and walking. Historic Eastport is a just a short drive offering the opportunity of seeing a real working seaport boasting one of the deepest ports in all of the east coast. Local shops feature sea glass jewelry and local art, among many other interesting items made by local crafters and resident artists. Be sure to stop in to see Raye's Mustard, the oldest working mustard mill in the country. Hiking is wonderful in this area where you can visit West and East Quoddy Head Lights, Shackford Head Park and the Bold Coast trails for spectacular sites.
