Charming Oceanfront Cottage-Great Views and 20 Feet from Shore

Located in: Milbridge
Sea Smoke is a delightful cottage offering a peaceful and cozy getaway with spectacular, long views up and down the lovely ocean bay surrounding Rays Point.  This comfortable 2 bedroom, 1½ bath cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood of other cottages and farms on one of Washington County’s most scenic peninsulas. There are wonderful panoramic views of the ever changing tides with many granite points and islands to explore.
One of Sea Smoke’s biggest advantages is its location – there are only a handful of rental cottages close to the services and amenities of the quaint fishing village of Milbridge, yet far enough away to offer wonderful oceanfront views and countryside privacy. Unlike many of the very remote areas around us, Sea Smoke is conveniently located just 5 miles from Milbridge’s small village center where you will find a good modern grocery story, two restaurants, pharmacy, gas station, public library, medical center, and a couple of cute gift shops to explore. Although there are other lovely cottages to rent across Downeast Maine, you’ll find the convenience of our location combined with Sea Smoke’s scenic, rural atmosphere to be a big plus. 
Offering numerous amenities, this clean and comfortable cottage is just 20 feet from the water's edge. Sea Smoke's close proximity to the shore ensures terrific up close water views. Visitors have direct access to the shore via a short set of stairs located in front of the cottage.  A waterside patio is the perfect spot for relaxing with a book while basking in the sun’s warmth and enjoying the refreshing cool afternoon breezes that come off the ocean and bay. 
Sea Smoke cottage takes its name from the occasional and brief summer fogs that roll in gently and peacefully from the open ocean and down the bays along the rocky coast of Downeast Maine.  From the cottage you can enjoy watching the clammers as well as the lobster and pleasure boats that come in and out of the channel leading to the open ocean.  You'll delight in watching the late afternoon sun create a spectacular show as its rays light up the pink and orange granite shores of nearby Blaskett Point and Peace Point.  At night you can watch the moon rise across the bay, enjoy thousands of stars, and even the occasional display of the northern lights. 
Sea Smoke is the perfect size and location for a small family or for couples wanting to get away from it all. The interior of the cottage is decorated with a seaside Maine cottage flair, centered around its water views and rocky shoreline.  The master bedroom offers a queen bed, large closet and an attached private half bath. The guest room features two twin beds. The cottage also has a fully updated center bath, with tub & shower. There is a glass fronted great-room that includes a dining area, living room with electric log fireplace, satellite TV with DVD player, Wi-Fi Internet, and a well equipped kitchen. The cottage includes many extras such as CD player, washer, dryer, games, outdoor gas grill, phone, and all linens/towels. Cell service is good in the area for most carriers including ATT, Verizon, and US Cellular. 
The waters off of Sea Smoke are wonderful for kayaking or canoeing with the tides to “seal island” where you will see numerous seals and nesting birds.  This is a tidal bay with DownEast tides changing by as much as 14 feet every 6 hours. So, launching from the cottage is limited to hours around high tide; there is a deep water launch site in Milbridge.
There are several pairs of Bald Eagles nesting nearby, and they are often seen flying over the bay in front of the cottage. You will likely see seals, terns, loons, ducks, and other shore birds along with the foxes, porcupines, and deer that call the Rays Point Peninsula their home.  In July and August you can pick wild blueberries and raspberries along the road. The area around the cottage is perfect for walking or biking. 
With the cottage's central location along Maine’s beautiful Downeast coast, vacationers have many options to choose from when planning the day’s excursions to take advantage of the area’s plentiful sights, activities and cultural events. 
 In the immediate area of the cottage we recommend hiking and exploring the beautiful ocean side McClellan Park in Milbridge or doing a boat tour of the local islands or the Puffin colonies at the beautiful Petit Manan light house.
You can also visit Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge (Recently renamed Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge). The coastal hiking trails are spectacular and the seabirds colonies are a wonder to watch.  Petit Manan also allows public access and picking in the refuge's enormous wild blueberry barrens.
An absolute must is the 15 mile drive to see the stunning mainland section of Acadia National Park at Schoodic Peninsula with it spectacular granite cliffs and large crashing surf.  The park offers wonderful walking trails and you can drive to the top of the 'mountain' for breathtaking views of the ocean, islands, forests, and other mountains in the area.  Along the way visit the small but charming walking villages of Corea and Winter Harbor where you will find a passenger ferry service to Bar Harbor.
Take a day trip to Bar Harbor (60 minutes), or travel up the coast to explore Campobello Island (Canada) and FDR's beautiful summer home (60 minutes).  In the same area, you will find the breathtaking Quoddy Head State Park Lighthouse, the easternmost point in the U.S., with wonderful hikes and walks including an arctic bog nature walk. 
Whatever your interest, this terrific area will not disappoint vacationers looking for the real Maine experience.
Sea Smoke cottage is 1½ hours from Bangor and the Bangor International Airport, 3½ hours northeast of Portland, 5½ hours from Boston, 8½ hours from New York City, and 2 hours from St. Stephen, New Brunswick. The house is 1 hour from Bar Harbor and the Mt. Desert island portion of Acadia National Park.
Sea Smoke cottage welcomes well behaved dogs (limit of 2 dogs) and smoking is not permitted.
