Jonesport cottage description

There is no finer meeting of land & sea than this 3 acre property that has a 270 degree high water view & 1200 ft of ocean frontage. The cottage house and guest accommodations have all been carefully renovated. Two bedrooms sleep 4 & there are 4 bathrooms. It is secure & private with walking along the shore or in the woods.
This 1,500 sq ft house has an open floor plan with knotty pine walls & grand stone fireplace. The lovely & efficient kitchen is well supplied and has the same spectacular views. The upstairs master suite has been described by some as the most spectacular bedroom in Maine. Hear the whisper of the ocean as you relax. A king bed is accompanied by 2 bathrooms; one with a Jacuzzi/tub/shower & the other with a shower+steam. The adjacent sitting room is the ultimate reading room. Full laundry facilities.
The detached garage has an upstairs suite with a full bed, a bathroom with shower,and a breakfast table with lovely views of the ocean, islands & gardens.
About Our Home:
This is one of the most beautiful & spectacular places in Maine. We have had the pleasure of living here for 12 wonderful years. It is now our dream to live aboard our trawler in the Summertime and travel by land to warmer climates in the Wintertime. We are renting our home to share some of the pleasures & the life style we have experienced and to expose it to the next owner. The property offers the ultimate in secure privacy. The view is spectacular any time of year & in any kind of weather. Storms may be the best. Sometimes we have crashing surf other times it just whispers but there are always views of birds & wildlife and the magnificent islands. The property is ideal for hiking the wooded areas or walking our shore front & the 1/2 mile sand beach adjacent to the property.
Kayak or boat from your own property into the adjacent estuary or across the Chandler Bay to the one mile sand beach in Roque Island harbor. Boat to nearby islands inhabited only by sea life and birds, don't forget to take a picnic.
What Else To Do:
Jonesport is a charming and friendly fishing village. Lobster is the biggest part of our economy followed by mussels and clams, all easy to obtain from local fishermen. Better yet arrange with a fisherman to take you out on his lobster boat. You can cook them on our outdoor lobster cooker or grill. Don't want to cook? There are a few fine dining restaurants within 20 miles but our local restaurants offer good food & experiences you will long remember.
Puffin Tours and private Eco Tours are available. There are 2 fine golf courses nearby. Acadia National Park is one of the most visited park in America. It is located about 80 miles away in Bar Harbor. Visit Campabello, FDR's summer home. There is also a first class golf course on Campabello Island.

We provide information on the many things to do in the area.
Flying, Arts, & Other Fun Things:
For the private pilot the Machias Municipal airport is 17 miles. Machias is the home of the Blueberry Festival in August and the University of Maine..
In Jonesport 'Art in the Library' shows the work of 45 local artists & photographers & has opening receptions for each show. We have an excellent library that is stocked with new books & amenities. It also features the very popular 'Music in the Library' series which presennts top ranked musicians as does the Machias Concert Series.
July 4th is special in Jonesport with the 'World's Fastest Lobster Boat Races' in the Moosabec Reach. The town is filled with festivities that whole week including a top notch arts & craft show. Roque Bluffs State Park is nearby as is Jasper Beach & Quoddy Head State Park. Hike the 1,500 acre Nature Conservancy Trail on Beals Island or visit the UMM Lobster & clam facilities.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: Bob & I are originally from the west coast & are both adventurers & avid boaters. In 1996 we trailered our live aboard power boat to Maine & began exploring the east coast all the way to Key West and back to Maine. The trip lasted 15 wonderful months. Jonesport was our last stop and we fell in love with the area & the friendly community and of course Mary Jim's Point. We purchased the property as there was no doubt that we wanted this to be our home. We sold our home in Monterey & moved everything to Jonesport. The buildings were in modest disrepair. Starting with acceptable existing foundations in 2001, we completely rebuilt the structures. We have since enjoyed this property more than any other in our life. We have become very active in our community and have enjoyed the wonderful people who make it what it is. As we are grow older we once again hear the call of adventure and plan to answer that call by living aboard our trawler during the Summer seasons and traveling to by car to warmer climates during the Winter seasons. Mary Jim's Point is available for rent this Summer season. The property will be available for purchase and closing following the Summer season. Since we will be living aboard our boat in the area, we have decided to manage the care of our guests ourselves. We hope you have the opportunity to enjoy Mary Jim's Point at its finest. Who knows....you may be the lucky ones who feel, as we did, that Mary Jim's Point must be the piece of heaven on earth that fits.

                          Why the Owner Chose Jonesport:
                          This is perhaps the most magnificent ocean front property in Maine and perhaps the United States

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Great thought went int the design and comfort when we built this house to take advantage of the magnificent views and comfort of the property.
