This peaceful and private oceanfront cottage is nestled in a private cove. Guests have often described it as 'a sweet little cottage.' Guests venture out to explore the Down East area and are delighted to return to our restful cottage. Our non-smoking cottage is situated on Tom Leighton Point. The cottage has a master bedroom with double bed, Open Living, Kitchen and Dining Area and full bath.
One of Down East Maine's 'secret' spectaculars is McClellan Park, a short walk from the cottage. You will feel the pounding surf, have your heart soar with eagles, and be totally enthralled with all the wonders that the coast can offer.
Watch bald eagles, terns, loons, numerous waterfowl and seabirds. Enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Talk to local fishermen at the town pier and purchase their fresh catch right off the boat. In Milbridge, find convenient access to a new supermarket, buy fresh caught lobster right off the boat, meat market, banking, Historial Society Museum, drug store, health center and services. Stroll down sidewalks and browse several gift shops including the well stocked 'Cinnamon Stick.' Take in a movie at the Milbridge Theater and dine at one of several local eateries. Try the local drive-in for a fish fry or ice-cream or dine at 44 North, a restaurant & pub.

Sweet Little Cottage
Sweet Little Cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this sweet little cottage on the water. The listing was very accurate and the photos reflect exactly what you get for the rate. We enjoyed the seclusion as well as the ability to interact with others in the small town. Bar Harbor (approximately 45 min away by car) was a beautiful town with lots of sights and activity. The property is well maintained and VERY clean! A great value for the money. The owners are very helpful, but certainly not intrusive. I would definitely reccommend this property to anyone who would like to get away from it all!!

An Affordable Maine Paradise
An Affordable Maine Paradise
If you want to be alone (but not isolated), in nature (but not in the wild), away from the tourists (but close enough to tourist attractions), have all the necessities of life (and more), great, friendly, helpful, interesting landlords (but not intrusive), and not break the bank, then this is the place for you The pictures show what the cabin looks like but make it look much smaller. It is actually a very good size, immaculate, and it has all the comforts of home—bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and eating area. During our stay, we brought, from our home in Phoenix, boxes of books, musical instruments, art equipment, camping equipment, a boat--and there was plenty of room to store all those things. We had a couple of friends visit and we made full use of the large picnic table outside the door upon which we laid out six freshly caught lobsters , corn on the cob (which we cooked right on the gas barbecue provided), In the morning, the songs of the birds and the gradual illumination of the cabin by the slowly rising sun made waking up early a joy. At night, a light cover was needed (but we Phoenicians loved that and didn't need air conditioning). The location on the water (watch out for the 12-foot tides) was perfect for our rubber boat (with small motor) but we wished we had brought our kayaks or our canoe. It was quiet, otherwise, and in the four weeks we were there, we never ran out of places we wanted to visit (couldn't see them all) or romantic opportunities in this perfect, tranquil, lovely place. Both of us were inspired to write, paint, read, cook, relax, and visit many, many places in the area and beyond. We went a few times to Acacia National Park, Bar Harbor, went to the lobster festival in Winter Harbor, the blueberry festival in Machias, and various other summer arts festivals nearby. As amateur oenophiles, we enjoyed the winery near Milbridge (we went twice). My husband, the zoologist, saw eagles, river otters, various ducks/birdsand many other species he could add to his life list, sometimes right from the cabin, Our only disappointments were that we couldn't stay longer and that we never did see a moose. Also, our hosts, long-time residents, let us know about every church dinner and celebration in the area, were available to answer any questions we might have, and were practically at our beck and call. My husband and I have promised each other that we will return, and that's one promise neither one of us will break. Bob and Ca
