Come stay in our comfortable, romantic one bedroom cottage set in a peaceful, secluded location on the coast of Maine, with a 5 minute walk to public water access. You share the property with owners who may or may not be present during your visit.
Come, experience Downeast Maine from the epicenter of its famous coast, remarkable for its stunning views, nesting bald eagles, basking seals, fireflies and starry nights. Stay in our Waterview Cottage with its double bed and comfortable living room overlooking Smith Cove and summer sunsets. Cozy up to our fireplace (propane) on those cool evenings. It's a 5 minute walk to the town dock where you can enjoy water access. Our location is quite remote including lots of winding roads.
There's lots to do for all ages:
Like to walk/hike?
Explore nearby Holbrook Sanctuary, hike Blue Hill Mountain or take a picnic to Acadia National Park, just 1 1/2 hours away, for spectacular hiking or biking through the woods on the famous Carriage Trails. The Blue Hill Heritage Trust has added many new hiking trails on the peninsula.
Want to get on the water?
Charter a sailboat at Buck's Harbor Marine for a day on Eggemoggin Reach or rent kayaks to paddle on one of our many local bays, or take the mail boat to Isle au Haut (part of Acadia Natn'l Park) for a hike, or swim in the local, and warmish, Walker Pond.
Is art your thing?
Plan a day trip to Deer Isle, Stonington, or Blue Hill to check out the impressive, local art scene. The Reversing Falls Sanctuary offers art openings and other events.
World famous Kneisal Hall Music School in Blue Hill hosts fabulous classical concerts throughout the summer; Flash in the Pan Steel Drum Band plays at the Blue Hill town park most Monday evenings (overlooking Blue Hill harbor); check out the Stonington Opera House for their repertoire of all kinds of performances; live music Tues. nights at Methodist Church in Buck's Harbor; open mic at Tinderhearth.
Are you a Foodie?
Pick up your bread ( croissants, tarts, cookies, pizza and more!) at our local Tinderhearth Bakery, and your greens at the Brooksville Farmer's Market on Tuesdays just above Buck's Harbor Market. David's Folly Farm will sell you farm fresh meat and Buck's Harbor Market (5 minutes away) has just about everything else for dinner. O yes, and, of course, don't forget you can buy lobsters at Northern Bay Market, live or cooked and ready to go! Then, come back to Waterview Cottage and watch the sun as it sets over Smith Cove. And, great, local restaurants abound - see the local Weekly Packet for more info.
There's so much more to do – play golf, tennis, visit pottery studios, enjoy raw oysters fresh from the local (and world famous) Bagaduce River Oyster Farm, go bird watching, or visit the pioneering “back-to-the-land" Good Life Center 7 miles away in Cape Rosier.
Oh! I forgot to mention blueberry pie a la mode.
You'll just have to come explore for yourself!
