Super clean and well appointed
This was a great experience. We didn't realize it was over the garage and the owners were in the cottage behind it. They were gracious and respected our privacy, but I have to admit, I was looking for something a little more private. We were unable to get to down to the water as there was a recent rain and the path was flooded, and the deck railing blocked the view when seated on the deck. We didn't spend much time there as we were out and about taking advantage of the area's offerings, but the cottage is very clean and has everything you need. We saw deer every morning on the property as well as a porcupine, eagles and osprey.
So glad you stopped in for a short visit. The deck rail height is mandated by code and is beyond our control. All of our guests in the past ten years have never had an issue with our wonderful view. Because of the historic rainfall here in Downeast this season many of the access roads to the shore are flooded over. We recommend boots.. the cottage stocks two pairs for use by our guests. Thanks for the five stars!
Wonderful time at Winkle Cottage
We had a wonderf
So glad you had a wonderful time. Please come back soon!
The quietest place in Maine!
Winkle Cottage is the quietest place we've ever stayed! The peace and serenity we enjoyed there were enhanced by the friendliness of our hosts who were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. (The chocolate chip cookies didn't hurt!) The cottage was immaculate but warm and cozy with one of the most comfortable beds this side of The Ritz! The décor was most appropriate for a coastal Maine cottage without being overdone. We had everything we needed for a completely relaxing and stress-free vacation. We'll be back.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for choosing Winkle for your vacation. We look forward to your return soon!
Delightful cottage in peaceful setting
We loved our time spent at Winkle Cottage, and Bob and Trisha are fantastic hosts. We had plenty of privacy and space, yet they were available to answer questions and make us feel welcome. The cottage itself is spacious, bright, and has all the comforts of home- comfy bed, sofas to nap on, and a well-stocked kitchen... We loved relaxing out on the deck in the morning, and at the end of a day hiking in the area. We hope to return soon!!
We are delighted that you enjoyed Winkle! We strive to make it as comfortable and homey as possible for our guests who are coming from both near and far. Thanks so much for visiting. Hope to see you return soon!
Quiet and then some. What a great place to relax.
Patricia was there to greet us and let us know that she was available if we needed anything. The place is spotlessly clean and the view is great. Far enough away from things to be peaceful but within driving distance of good places to eat and things to do and see. The only thing we did not like about this place was leaving.
A true hidden gem.
If you need a place to unwind this is for you.
We are delighted that your stay at Winkle was amazing! We strive to assure our guests have everything they need for a most enjoyable week. We provide all the information regarding things to do and places to see in addition to all the comforts to make your stay with us a real vacation in Downeast!
Hope to see you return soon!
Lovely cottage in Maine overlooking the bay
Winkle Cottage is just as advertised and pictured. We enjoyed a great week staying there. Tricia and Bob were welcoming hosts. They knew we would be arriving after dark and had the lights on for us. The next morning we woke up with no hot water. Bob was there in just a few minutes to remedy the problem. The electric had flickered the day before and tripped the breaker. Apologetic and assured us he was nearby for just such problems.
The cottage is very comfy and clean. The kitchen had all we needed, especially lobster crackers! Coffee on the deck in the morning is what vacation is all about!!! The bathroom was very spacious, much bigger than most. Several windows and ceiling fans allow the air to circulate nicely throughout the cottage.
We went whale watching one day and fishing another, both with Eastport Windjammers. Such nice owners and lots of fun! Hiking at Quoddy State Park was our favorite, such beautiful views. Campobello Island was fun. We toured FDR’s summer cottage and hiked out to the lighthouse. You can only go at low tide, and we got to watch a minke whale and also a baby seal sunning himself on the rocks. Reversing falls is so peaceful, and we hiked there and watched seals and an eagle soar around. We cooked lobster twice from Quoddy Bay Lobster. We spent our last day at Acadia. Cadillac Mountain is breathtaking!!!
Maine is a beautiful place to visit, and we enjoyed our stay at Winkle Cottage. Thank you Tricia and Bob and hope to visit again some day!
Thank you so much Duane and Lisa for visiting at Winkle!
We are happy that you had such a wonderful week despite the warm weather in our area. We strive to provide our guests with all the comforts of home and make sure the cottage is sparkling clean for each guest. As you know, our view is incredible from the deck and a great location for relaxing.
With all the choices visitors have in our area for lodging, we are thrilled you chose Winkle!
Hope to see you back soon!
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 at the shore is one of 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 5 miles 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. Enjoy access to the acreage across the street with a really spectacular view from your private deck. All that being said, visitors coming here would want to enjoy the beauty of this area including visiting Roosevelt Cottage on Campobello Island, hiking numerous trails, biking, kayaking, fishing, whale watching and taking a day trip to Acadia Park! Be prepared to be active in addition to relaxing at this beautiful cottage. The cottage enjoys the ocean breeze and the smell of the bay at low tide. Mother nature is our air conditioning.
