Relaxing by the water on the Maine coast

  • 4 of 5

The stay was a quiet relaxing time. There were a few glitches that were unexpected. There was no internet available and the there was no cell service. The TV set was old and the picture quality was poor. All of the facilities, water, heat and kitchen equipment were adequate and working OK. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: There is cell phone coverage at our cottage, and a U.S. tower in the Eastport area. The cottage is across the bay from New Brunswick, and you may pick up the closest Canadian tower. Most carriers would remove any international fee since the cottage is physically in the U.S. We suggest notifying your carrier prior to your trip and let them know that you will be vacationing near the U.S.-Canadian border. There is Wi-Fi coverage at our cottage. We were in the process of changing Internet providers, and technicians could not turn on service when it was scheduled. The television has been replaced with a new model. There was a button pressed on the previous TV that was the cause of the fuzzy picture. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused you.

Clean, relaxing, unpretentious cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have enjoyed this small, clean and unpretentious cottage more than a few times. We have not experienced winter here yet but, we have stayed here in the Spring, Summer and Fall and have not been disappointed yet.

Sitting on the deck can be an adventure in some ways. One time it can be a couple of whales fishing .... or, loons and ducks and comically squabbling gulls sharing fishing territory.... or, a bald eagle soaring overhead, only to serendipitously descend and perch in the pine tree next to the cottage.

One of the most impressive things this year was breakfast at the Waco blueberry pancakes ever! Definitely worth the eight hour drive!

When it is time to leave, we take one last ritual walk out on the deck for a quiet survey, knowing that we are happier and more relaxed and grounded than when we arrived. Always a little saddened to leave; wondering what interesting event will capture our attention next year....?

Amazing water view

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to enjoy a five star hotel amenities this is not the place to be; however, if you want to experience broad water view, swim in clean water, watch the birds and seals swim, eat lobsters and crabs every day, an easy drive to Campobello Island this is the place to be. The owner is quite friendly and accommodating. The cottage is old but clean, clean new sheets and towels. Wooden deck to sit and relax in the evening, so so close to the water. There is a travel's guide not far from the camping grounds. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My teenager son met new friends! The took him fishing, clamming, and spent time on the reservations. I plan on returning next summer. The weekly price is also reasonable.

Cozy, waterfront, tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Incredible quiet peaceful getaway spot right on the ocean near Canada. Quintessential Maine with no crowds! Lots to do including whale watching, Campobello, Quoddy Head, restaurants, gift shops. We went home with lots of Rayes mustard.. Enjoy a lobster roll right next to the ocean. The awesome tranquility sitting on a deck feet from the beach and ocean with no one else there cannot be beat..
