Property description

Heron View Cottage is a charming retreat located directly on scenic Machias Bay, on the spectacular Downeast Coast of Maine. This picturesque and historic cottage has all modern amenities and is cozy and affordable. It's the the perfect getaway for a couple, family or group of 3, or an individual looking to experience the Maine coast in an idyllic setting. The lovely 2-bedroom cottage has beautiful, sweeping views of Machias Bay from expansive windows in the dining room, bedroom and even bathroom. An enclosed porch also has magnificent bay views and is always a wonderful place to relax. Features of the cottage include comfortable country antique furnishings, and the spacious living room features a fireplace where you can enjoy the ambiance of its soothing warmth and comforting crackle. There is one bedroom on each floor and a fully-equipped galley kitchen.


The Outdoors and Puffin Boat Tours: Heron View Cottage is just a short drive from Jasper Beach, with its expansive, half-mile-long cobble beach and surf. There are several hiking trails located in Cutler that are only a 20 minute drive from the house. The Bold Coast, Boot Cove and Hamilton Cove trails skirt along the edge of rugged ocean cliffs and scenic vistas. They are “must” hikes when visiting the Downeast coast area.

Another “must do” while in the area is the Atlantic Puffin boat tours offered by Captain Andy Patterson of the Bold Coast Charter Company out of Cutler harbor. These beautiful and rare parrot-like seabirds only frequent a few of the rugged offshore islands along the Maine coast. Your destination of Machias Seal Island, only 9 miles off Cutler, is the largest puffin colony on the Maine coast, with thousands more birds than any other site.

Lobsters and Whales: The cottage is only a short drive to the lobster wharf in Bucks Harbor where vacationers revel at the chance to pick out their own fresh lobsters on the pier. You can also hop on a whale-watching cruise departing from Eastport daily. The cottage is only 1 hour from this popular and picturesque whale-watching port.

The Famous Machias Wild Blueberry Festival in August! And don’t miss the Downeast event of the year – the annual Machias Wild Blueberry Festival in Machias (Aug. 16-18, 2013). This is a fun-filled celebration of the blueberry. The Downeast region produces nearly 85% of the world's blueberries, and the residents of the area are proud of that fact and it shows. There’s no lack of exciting events for everyone at this event – a Main Street parade, blueberry farm tours, magic shows, fabulous food, fireworks, crafts and fine art by regional artists, live music and, of course the blueberry pie-eating contest!

Located at the edge of historic Machiasport village, there are many interesting activities and adventures nearby and farther afield. A short drive down Machiasport peninsula leads you to spectacular Jasper Beach and hikes on the Point of Maine – and you can pick up lobsters on the way in Bucks Harbor. Just up the coast is the Bold Coast Trail with hikes on the dramatic rockbound bluffs. Other nearby excursions include boat trips to view puffins on Machias Seal Island, Campobello Island in Canada with FDR’s summer home, the beautiful sand beach at Roque Bluffs, Schoodic Peninsula in Gouldsboro, the Bartlett Winery Estate for wine tasting, historic Burnham Tavern in Machias and the Ruggles House in Columbia Falls, West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec and quaint Eastport. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are a scenic 1 1/2 hour drive away. Bicycling, golfing and fishing are possibilities. And in back of the cottage there's great bird-watching and kayaking and canoeing on the bay!
