Need to get away? This peaceful retreat is on Passamaquoddy Bay, Maine with beachfront for kayaking or fishing. Beautiful views of Campobello, New Brunswick--President Franklin D. Roosevelt's summer home. Hike, enjoy wildlife such as whales, seals, and numerous birds. See an ocean sunrise from the most easternmost point in the USA and relax on the large deck just feet from the ocean. Don't forget your passport for your visit to New Brunswick!
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.
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 Diner....best 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....?
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.
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..
