East Machias house description

The wildflower Inn is a lovely vacation home located in the quaint downeast village of East Machias. Surrounded by flowers, plants and the beautiful East Machias river, the Wildflower Inn makes a perfect spot to spend your vacation. We are within easy driving of Bar Harbor, Campobello Island, Lubec, Eastport, Calais and New Brunswick Canada. Rogue Bluffs State Park is a short drive away (my favorite beach), with a salt water beach on one side of the road and fresh water on the other side. All covered in pink and white beach roses most of the summer. East Machias has a lovely recreational trail for hiking, biking, etc. but we also know of some spectacular hiking near Quoddy Head Lighthouse (Green Trail). Walk through pine forest and see crashing surf below. Bring a picnic lunch because you won't want to leave. Lobsters are fresh off the boat. We have lobster pots and will show you how to cook them if you wish. Sea Glass collecting is my favorite hobby. Artists galleries, yarn shops, gift shops, or just sit on the deck or farmers porch and watch the hummingbirds. Please be sure to bring a passport if you plan to go to Canada. Canada is a short boat trip by ferry to New Brunswick (with your car). Did I mention that we are near an award winning restaurant.....fabulous food!!! Several more restaurants are located in Machias (5 mi). The University of Maine at Machias is here too. Machias has a full supermarket (hannafords) and pharmacy/drug store (rite-aid) along with many other stores to visit. See Bad Little Falls in Machias (beautiful). We know you will love this area. It is charming and friendly. We live here from April through October and feel very fortunate to have found such beauty. We will be available to answer questions, or help with whatever you may need to make your stay a memorable one.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Marge and Paul Hartnett have vacationed in East Machias since 1970. We are both retired and decided to open the Wildflower Inn. We have met wonderful people and enjoy suggesting places of interest in the area.

              Why the Owner Chose East Machias:
              Surrounded by beautiful flowers, humming birds, plants, lupines, views of the East Machias river, seals, bald eagles, etc. You will have a chance to relax and enjoy YOUR home. Sit on the deck and watch the eagles, relax on the lanai and read amid the hanging baskets and window boxes, cook to your heart's content or visit some of the many lighthouses, hiking trails, sea glass beaches, shop in quaint stores, etc., etc., etc. This house is spotlessly clean and pet free. Your privacy is important and we will not disturb you unless you ask us to. We will give directions, cook your lobster and do everything to make your stay comfortable.
