  • Terrific Spot for Quiet Vacation with Superb View

    "We wanted a quiet place close to the water that was near favorite hiking places (Great Wass Is., Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge, Bold Coast & Campobello Is.) and this was it! We spent a wonderful week with wonderful weather, breakfast on the deck in the warming sun every morning, watching eider ducks and an occasional loon floating and diving near shore, walks on Sandy River Beach & out to Bar Island. The cottage is very well equipped (kitchen had everything I needed to make most of our meals there). Though there are cottages close by on either side, they are screened by a hedge of trees and bushes so we had plenty of privacy. And the view of the sunrise is spectacular, not to mention the view at all times. This place exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend it."

  • everything we hoped for

    "Stayed here on this beautiful and quite cabin during our honeymoon. We saw a pair of kingfishers and a bald eagle while kayaking (on the kayaks provided) and tons of hummingbirds from the kitchen table. My new husband caught a sizable small-mouth bass within 5 minutes of casting out from the dock. When we decided to venture out, we were 20 minutes in either direction from the adorable towns of Lubec and Machias. If you plan to visit Campobello Island, which is a bridge away from Lubec, remember to bring your passports. Kate, the property owner, was friendly and accommodating. We are eagerly anticipating a return trip."

  • Amazing!

    "My family stayed at Life on the Ledge and we had an amazing time! The house is absolutely gorgeous beyond what the pics show online. Jim and April were so helpful, kind and patient with our questions and they went out of their way to make sure we had a great vacation. Both are quite knowledgeable on the history of the island and graciously gave us a boat tour of the area. We have rented through VRBO for quite sometime, and I can honestly say this was our best vacation ever! The location is breathtaking! I highly recommend visiting Maine, and definitely recommend Life on the Ledge. You can sit outside watch the lobster boats and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of your surroundings, hike the island or visit so many great places nearby. We visited Jasper Beach, Rogue Bluffs State Park, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, Acadia National Park (amazing!,) and Lubec but the greatest highlight was returning to Life on the Ledge everyday."

  • Very Nice Cottage and Owner

    "This beautiful cottage was designed and built by the owner Ray and his wife. It is open and airy and even better than the pictures. The cottage was perfectly cleaned when we arrived and stocked with everything that we needed for our stay. Ray greeted us as we pulled up, let us unload our gear, and then came by to tell us about the cottage, and the area. He really went the extra mile for us, and that alone is a major reason to recommend this cottage. There is a second cottage on the property that the owner use, so they are generally there if you need them. The cottage is located across a two lane road from the oceanfront, and a kind neighbor lets you cross his property to access the rocky beach. In the morning you can hear the lobster boats going out. During our first couple of days here, we did not feel the need to drive anywhere. There are two nature areas within an easy walk from the cottage, and the walks provided there kept us occupied. Bar Harbor, Lubec, and Corea are all an easy drive away for outings. There is also a good grocery store, and a great Mexican restaurant in Milbridge. Don't expect your cell phone to work here, and the provided wi-fi was pretty weak. But, you can walk up to the entrance of the hike up Pigeon Hill, and you will get cell phone data access."
