Cozy Farmhouse in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The house is comfortable and the first floor has many large windows to let in light and cool breezes. Although the view of the bay is limited from the house, the property has maintained walking paths that will take you to down to the beachfront or a ramble through wildflower meadows. There's 20 acres to the property, with plenty of room for families to play in the backyard and sit around a fire pit.

The location of the house is also ideal for many Downeast Maine activities. It is a 15 minute drive to groceries and shopping in Machias, 10 minutes to beautiful Cutler harbor, 15 minutes to the Cutler Bold Coast Public Lands, less than an hour to the easternmost U.S. point at Quoddy Head. It's also only 30 minutes from Jasper Beach, Rogue' Bluff State Park, and some of Maine's best fishing lakes.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Katie Dove Beach Farm was a treat from start to finish. The house was clean, well-appointed, tastefully and simply decorated, and spacious, with two three-season porches and a deck---allowing for relaxing spots for any weather. The walk through the wild flower meadow to the beach was a delight (wear bug spray in early morning or evening!). The beach was lovely, too, with plenty of privacy and a beautiful view at high or low tide. Low tide was a surprise---acres of mudflats with the water in the far distance, so no way to swim, but it was a pleasure anyway and a great spot for observing all the sea birds. We cooked nearly all our meals on the grill and found everything we needed in the kitchen. There are fantastic hiking trails just up the coast---the Cutler Preserve is a must if you want to truly experience the "bold" of the Bold Coast. And just a little further along Rt 191 is a hidden gem---a hiking trail that drops you onto a pristine cobble beach---Broad Brook Cove.

I highly recommend the Katie Dove Beach Farm for anyone that wants a truly relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting!

KATIE DOVE.....SIMPLY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Katie Dove for 2 nights while we traveled from New Hampshire to Nova Scotia, Canada. We had planned on visiting Quoddy Head State Park while in Maine, but we didn't know what else to do during our short time there. Peter, the owner, made some suggestions which helped us have a wonderful time. His home is in an absolutely beautiful setting with a great view of the water, your own private beach, an apple orchard and we enjoyed the visit of different birds daily...even an eagle. Katie Dove has everything you would need for your stay and we HIGHLY recommend this home. Our only regret is that we didn't plan on staying longer, hopefully we'll have an opportunity to return. Thanks Peter!

Great location, lots to do nearby.

  • 4 of 5

Great property with access to a Private Maine beach and quick access to cool places like west quoddy head light house and their beautiful hiking trails, Jasper Beach, chocolate tasting in Lubec, and more. Great place for a small family with kids. Very relaxing. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Only drawback was the full size beds as we are used to a queen.

Best Find yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of nooks and crannies to find that place to relax with a good book. Large, clean, comfortable layout with spots to get away from it all. Furnishings and amenities met every need. Cupboards and fridge surprisingly well stocked. Apples In the yard ripe for picking. Kind of reminded me of the house in "The Big Chill". It would be a great place for a reunion of several good friends or couples. Lots of sleeping options. Two full baths. Washer & dryer....... Only negative, was no wifi so couldn't look up things to see and do on my iPad. Still gets 5 stars.

Awesome stay at scenic Katie Dove Beach Farm

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this location and specifically this property to anyone looking to truely "get away". Views from the deck and enclosed porch were tremendous. Private acces to the bay, were we spent every low tide looking for mussels, shells and sea glass, or just hiking the flats. Spent evenings around a drift wood fire in the fire pit.

Property is definitely outside of town, but just a short drive to restaurants and even a dunkin donuts. Head the other way and within a few minutes you are in Cutler purchasing fresh lobster right from the docks.

Property is an easy drive from awesome hiking trails, and other must see locations such as Quoddy Head Lighthouse, Lubec and Eastport. We would highly recommend a whale watching cruise in Eastport and sitting on the dock in Lubec watching the seals just feet away!

Great accomodations, with friendly hosts who are just a phone call away if you have any issues.
