Jonesport cottage description

Think back in time... to an era when life was simpler, to a place where the only deadline was to watch the moon rise over the ocean, to gaze at eagles soaring above the island, to see moose walking through your back yard. Experience our cottage by the sea and feel the peace and serenity of a time you thought was long past. Enjoy our comfortable, cozy cottage on the bluff, with its deck just yards from the open ocean. Whether your stay is for a romantic interlude, a quiet getaway, or a family vacation, you are sure to leave 'downeast' Maine with fond memories. Buy fresh lobster at the pier in Jonesport.

Explore tide pools in your back yard, walk to Bar Island at low-tide, or swim at nearby Sandy River Beach. Kayaking and tours to see whales and puffins available in Jonesport. Golf is just minutes away as is the University of Maine. Visit Bar Harbor, Eastport, and Campobello Island, New Brunswick - all an easy drive away. Pets may be allowed. Please visit our website.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We are retired educators - Mike was a science teacher, principal, and associate superintendent. Cindy taught 5th grade, special education, and spent her last 15 years in education as a high school counselor. Mike grew up in northern California, and Cindy is a Minnesotan.

                  Why the Owner Chose Jonesport:
                  Jonesport is unique in that it exemplifies Maine. Most tourists don't travel north of Bar Harbor, yet there is a beautiful coast and pretty villages. Jonesport has one of the world's largest lobster fishing fleets. The town is quaint with it's harbor, white church steeples, and friendly people.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We found it a calm, quiet, serene location where we can relax, yet take day trips to so many wonderful places nearby. You can buy fresh lobster at the pier in Jonesport, explore tide pools in your back yard, walk to the island at low-tide, or swim at nearby Sandy River Beach. Kayaking and tours to see whales and puffins are available in Jonesport. Golf is just minutes away as is the University of Maine, Machias with a fitness center and library open to the public. Visit Bar Harbor, Eastport, and Campobello Island, New Brunswick - all an easy drive away.
