Roque Bluffs cottage description

WaterColor Cottage in beautiful Roque Bluffs, Maine, offers guests a unique coastal vacation experience. WaterColor is the owners' second home and artist's/writer's retreat, lovingly maintained and generously shared with our guests.

As our guest, you will enjoy the art -filled open living areas, beautiful hand-crafted furnishings, quality linens and kitchen ware, perennial gardens and stone patio tucked into a fenced backyard. In the evenings, light a fire in the wood stove before venturing out to the garden to view the stars and late summer meteor showers.

WaterColor Cottage, across the lane from Little Kennebec Bay, has easy access for launching a kayak or canoe, or simply sitting on the rocks watching the eagles soar and the seals play. Enjoy a hike through the woods, past blueberry barrens, and along the shore -- all from your front door.

Just seven miles from Machias, our vacation home is for rent by owner and located outside of the crowds, close to nature, and within minutes of East Machias, Machiasport, Jonesport, and Cutler. Day trips to Jonesport, Eastport, Lubec, Campobello, and Acadia offer visitors a distinctive Down East vacation experience.
