About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms with Ocean Frontage

Nestled quietly in the picturesque pines of Maine, in a little town called Roque Bluffs you will find Duck Cove Cottage. Sitting right on the ocean on a point with a deep water harbor, and its own stairway on the right down to the ocean, with a mini-harbor and clam flats feet off the stairs.

Spaciously laid out with three bedrooms, two full baths, three living areas including its beautiful loft room, and a separate downstairs, and a living room dining area, with walk-out sliding glass doors in both, with gorgeous views of Duck Cove featuring some of Maine’s famous bold coastlines.

This cottage has it all! Upstairs in the loft you will find the master bedroom featuring a queen size bed, two dressers, skylight, and a TV with satellite. The cottage also has wireless high-speed internet throughout, and every bedroom, living area, and kitchen, has its own phone.

You will also find a smaller bedroom with two twin beds featuring a skylight and dresser, a full bath easily accessible from all rooms, a large living area with a lounge couch, TV with satellite, game table and lots of games and books.

Off to the side the loft also features a small reading nook with a comfortable chair and light. On the side, there is a large living area in the loft with a wrap around coach, coffee tables, and built in bookshelves, with a railing overlooking the downstairs living room area.

The main level features a large kitchen full of everything you will need!! Pots and pans, a full refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, toaster and all the comforts of your home kitchen at your disposal. There is also a washer and dryer and brand new gas furnace system in the basement, for those chilly mornings.

Another large bedroom with a queen size bed and two dressers tucked quietly in the back, another full size bathroom easily accessible from the bedroom and we’re not done!

On the front side of the main floor you will find a living room with a full couch, TV with satellite, wireless internet, and two sets of sliding glass doors to access the full size front deck which overlooks picturesque Duck Cove.

The dining area features a table seated for 6, another couch for relaxing in front of a large picture window, and a wood stove for those chilly Maine nights.

Duck Cove Cottage is pet and child friendly! Beautifully landscaped, we offer a fire pit with benches for relaxing in the evening. We also have a grill ready and full of propane for your use! We provide linens, towels, and dishes! To the right, in front of the cottage, there is a set of stairs down to the ocean, with a small, grassy beach area to keep a tender boat, kayak, or canoe. The cottage sits in the middle of a point, and when you walk straight out the front doors toward the ocean, there is water on three sides and a beautiful view of Kennebec bay, Hope Island, and the lobster boats and buoys surrounding it. There is good mackerel fishing right in front of the cottage, harbor pollock near the islands, and seals abound, with deer shag ledge and its seals and puffins just off the mouth of the bay.

So what are you waiting for?! Come visit us at Duck Cove Cottage today!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Second time we stayed here. Very comfortable house but the best parts are the bench on the water for morning coffee and the fire pit for evening cocktails

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Duck Cove Cottage for a week in early June. Amazingly, there were very few biting insects! The house is in a great location - convenient to the beach, a supermarket, and hiking on the Bold Coast and beyond. It's in a very quiet area, overlooking the water, and feels like a haven from the hustle and bustle. The road in to the house is windy, but the GPS location was very precise. The house was clean when we arrived, and Joey even stopped by to see if we had everything we needed. Our kids loved the upstairs rooms. All in all, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thank you!

Pictures do not do the property justice

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was lovely, clean and had most of the amenities we needed (we did have to buy more TP and hand soap but no big deal). The back porch was awesome to sit out on and have coffee (or wine) and let the dog explore the property which is much bigger than the pictures make it look. There are actually two sets of stairs down to the water with rocks you can sit on and watch the boats and the clam diggers. The house is so nice all wood with a cool loft and fireplace. About 10-15 minute drive to nearest town with gas, grocery, restaurants. My only complaint was that we did not get a rental agreement in advance and when the property manager was contacted he said it would be at the property waiting for us but it was not. We did the best we could when we left the property but I would have preferred instructions for trash, laundry, key etc. just so I knew we did everything correctly and would get our deposit back. We just got home today so we will find out! Other than that we loved it all and would go back again without hesitation.

Ocean breezes, seals bobbing, peaceful perfection

  • 5 of 5

Duck Cover is the perfect combination of quiet beauty and private escape. The oceanfront location is great: we saw seals and were able to delicately dip in the cold, clear ocean. There fire-pit made for great nights of s'mores and laughter. The location is wonderfully off-the-beaten-path yet only about 15 minutes to Machias with shopping and conveniences. Communication with Joey was great! We'll definitely return.

Great Views and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Duck Cove Cottage was a relaxing week away. The cottage was as expected -- just the basics, no frills or luxuries - but we didn't expect them from the price. The cottage was clean and had plenty of space. The front porch was wonderful (although some more comfortable outdoor furniture would have been appreciated). The views were spectacular and the air was scented with a piney, salty combination. Very quiet and peaceful.
