Downeast Seaside Cottage - Great Views - Sunny and Peaceful

Located in: Milbridge
On a large, peaceful tidal bay in Millbridge, with long views to spruce-covered islands, our cottage is a cozy getaway. With lots of windows facing the water, this is a bright and cheerful little house. A deck off the house faces the water.

This cottage has been completely renovated and is a lovely, light-filled space. South-facing windows offer a breathtaking view down the tidal bay. The kitchen is well-stocked with cook and bakeware, including big pots and everything needed to cook a lobster dinner. Our cottage is just a few yards from the shore, and open to the ocean breezes. A line of rose bushes along the bank provide fragrance and blooms during summer months. There are stairs to the shore, but children under 10 need supervision.

Nights can be cool even in a Maine summer, but there are plenty of cozy blankets and quilts, and a small propane stove should you need heat.

The cottage is quiet, private, and peaceful, and a wonderful place to unwind and relax. This 2-bedroom cozy space is ideal for a couple, but could also accommodate other guests or children with the twin bed in the second bedroom and the pull-out couch in the main room. The first bedroom has a queen bed. This cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood of other cottages and farms on Ray's Point, a finger of land extending into Harrington Bay. It's a beautiful part of Downeast Maine, with many points and islands to explore. You can see eagles and shore birds from the cottage and the deck, and kayak in the bay and beyond. (This is a tidal bay, so launching from the cottage is limited to hours around high tide; there is a deep water launch site in Milbridge). Ray's Point Road is a nice area for walking and biking and there are many hiking trails just a short drive away.

The village of Milbridge (shopping, post office, restaurants, library, etc.) is less than five miles away. For day trips, Acadia National Park (Schoodic Peninsula area) is a half hour away, Bar Harbor (where the main section of Acadia National Park is located) and Ellsworth are a 45-60 minutes drive. Petit Manaan National Wildlife Sanctuary (great birding and hiking) is less than a half hour drive.

Campobello Island, New Brunswick (FDR's summer home) is within an hour and a half, as is Quoddy Head, easternmost lighthouse in the US. Lobsters and clams available in Milbridge (lobster and clam pots provided with cottage). This is one of the largest wild blueberry producing areas in the world, so there are plenty of berries available nearby during the season (late July through August). Berry picking is permitted at Petit Manaan National Wildlife Refuge, in season.

Bangor International Airport is about 1 hour 20 minutes, Portland is approximately 3 hours, and Boston is a little over a 5 hour drive.

Other Things to Note:
This cottage is for weekly rentals, Saturday to Saturday. Checkin is at 3pm and checkout is at 11am the following Saturday.

In order to make this a pleasant rental for all, smoking is not allowed inside the cottage. Pets are considered on an individual basis.

The house has no wifi or cable but we have supplied a hefty selection of books and DVDs for any rainy days.

In our rural area of Maine, be aware that cell phone reception can sometimes be spotty. AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular all have relatively good coverage in our area, but we cannot guarantee good reception.
