  • Family Vacation for 3 Generations

    "We spent the week of July 19th at Tidewatch and had a wonderful time. We lived in Machias, ME when our daughters were young. Now with families of their own, they wanted to show their husbands and kids where they spent 8 years growing up from 1982-90. This house was the perfect rental for us for a couple of reasons. First, the 5 bedroom layout couldn't have been any better for the 8 of us and house had everything we needed. Second, without a doubt, was the location. It was down the road from the first house we lived in...which was right past Roques Bluff State Park.... so that brought back great memories. And, with the beach at the end of the back yard, looking for sea glass, rocks, and shells was a favorite pastime for the kids (2 & 5). Our plan was not to spend every day driving somewhere, which we didn't. One day the kids and grandkids spent a day in Bar Harbor, and another day we all went to West Quoddy Head in Lubec and then went for a whale-watching tour (unfortunately they didn't cooperate!). Most of the time was spent relaxing, catching up with old friends, a little bit of fishing, sea kayaking and enjoying some great lobster...cooked right at home. We definitely will be planning a return trip!"

  • Lovely house in a beautiful location!

    "We stayed here for a week with our four children and my parents. It really is a great house...clean spacious and comfortable. There is plenty to do in the area or you can just relax on the deck with a good book and great scenery, We did a combination of both. Got lobsters from the lobsterman just down the road, he even cooked them in sea water. Jayne and Alan were very responsive answering questions and returned our security deposit quickly. This is definitely one of the best houses we have ever rented. A favorite location in Maine too!"

  • best vacation ever!

    "This was my Downeast dream vacation! I've been coming to this area since I was a kid, but had never stayed right on the ocean before. Tom and Cathy's house was the perfect place -- beautiful and comfortable, well appointed with all the amentities I could ask for (nice dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer), very clean and well-maintained; and most important of all, it's in a gorgeous, peaceful location with a great view. I felt so at home in this lovingly restored farmhouse, smelling the sea air and the sweetgrass; watching the birds from the screened-in front porch in the early morning with my coffee. The location is great for day trips as well; Eastport, Machias, Quoddy Head, The Reversing Falls right down the road...I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves nature and wants to get off the beaten path. Thanks Tom and Cathy!"

  • Indian Summer at the Bold Coast

    "We had a wonderful time at Bold Coast Cottage. Compared to other rentals we have stayed in, the house is very well equipped which is extremely helpful for those traveling from a great distance. There are lots of brochures, magazines, trail maps, etc. to read about the area to help plan your week and get the most out of your vacation. And the location is so quiet and serene that not going anywhere but the deck is perfectly fine, too. The area is a hikers' paradise and the cottage is in a nice central location, perfect for those looking to get away from it all. The wifi came in handy, I was able to keep up with the college courses I am taking, and we had plenty of room to spread out and work in the dining room which did not interfere with our meals in the kitchen. I would stay here again and would recommend the cottage to others."
