Jonesport house description

Come relax at our peaceful, warm and cozy beachfront home. We are conveniently located in town, but at the end of quiet private road. We have a beautiful open yard for playing, picnicking or viewing the lobster boats in a working harbor. Walk down a short trail to one of the few sandy beaches in the county. Easy walk to the town library and groceries. Enjoy wonderful views across Moosabec Reach to Beals Island.

The house is a traditional New England cottage and is completely furnished to make you feel right at home. There are two full bedrooms upstairs and a daybed in the living room. We have a lovely sun porch for dining, reading or relaxing as the lobster boats go by. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs and fresh lobsters and shellfish are easily (and cheaply) available from the local pier. Enjoy our new gas BBQ grill and two mountain bikes to make it easy to explore the area. We've added a fire pit to gather around on cool evenings and roast a marshmallow or two!

Jonesport is an authentic fishing village and great jumping off point to explore Down East Maine. This is a fabulous area to kayak, bike, hike or to just relax. Golf is nearby too. You will likely see seals and wonderful birds right from the yard. Bar Harbor, Eastport and Ellsworth are easy day trips from here. There are also many wonderful artists and antique shops in the area. Photographers will love exploring the area or simply curl up with a good book and enjoy the ocean.

Come see all that Jonesport and Down East Maine has to offer.

              Owner info

              About the owner: We are both middle and high school science teachers who enjoy teaching in the US and abroad. Lisa is from California and Chris grew up in Maine. Although we have taught abroad for many years, we always find time in our year to come spend a relaxing week or two at our home in Jonesport. We hope you will too.

              Why the Owner Chose Jonesport:
              Jonesport is a lovely town, fun to explore, with the freshest lobsters and easy bike rides to hiking. This house in located in-town, but on the end of a quiet dead-end road, right on the ocean. The house is cozy and warm and a wonderful place to just get away from it all. We hope you'll love it as much as we do.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Book the week at the end of June or first week in July and watch the quaintest in-town 4th of July parade you've ever seen and watch the lobster boat races from the front lawn. (Check with us to verify the actually 4th of July celebrations as they vary from year to year.)
