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.

Fantastic peaceful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks at Katie Dove with our four-year-old son and had an absolutely magical time. Our son now wants to relocate to Maine after all the time spent running around the beach, feeding both the chickens and the neighbor's horse across the street, going to Roque Bluffs State Park, and toasting marshmallows in the backyard firepit. We made breakfasts with the wild blueberries picked right on the property, enjoyed a Cutler Bold Coast hike, and used the farm as a launching pad for wonderful excursions to surrounding areas, including Campobello Island for whale watching. Peter and Cindy could not have been more gracious hosts. We were also completely spoiled for weather the entire two weeks, so we are left with absolutely nothing but positive things to say about our stay.

Fantastic!!

This was our second year vacationing here, and it was just as perfect as last year. We had everything we needed, and when I left something of importance there, Peter sent it on immediately. Thanks again for another great vacation!
