"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!"

"We planned a visit to Maine as I was born there. I was an Army brat and my Dad was stationed at the northern tip of Maine. My husband had never been to Maine. The house was clean and well laid out. The people in the town were very friendly and it had some really great restaurants. The trip was perfect, the house was beautiful, I would go back that should say it all! The owners were great to deal with and we had no problems!"

"This is a very special place, quiet, off the beaten path, and right on the water. Spectacular sunsets, sun porch a great spot for all weather, accommodations were spacious and comfortable. Loved the cooker!! I appreciate the owners gentle impact on the environment, the solar system, and live lightly message.
It was so beautiful at the cottage that I didn't venture out much in my car to explore the vicinity. Instead, lots of walking locally along the rocks, woods, etc.
There is a new house being built on the point past the cottage, so the unspoiled property beyond has been cleared and will be habited. Still, you cannot see it from the cottage and only evidence would be cars driving past and possible alternate walking routes.
I will definitely return!!"

"I found this to be an EXCELLANT place to relax and enjoy the ocean view,sit and read,or enjoy hiking.We went to the salmon festival in nearby Eastport, walked about in town,and rock climbed, even with my 82yr. old mom.
We even found it enjoyable in hazy or overcast skies.You can hear the ocean and see loons,seals,eagles and ducks."Oh" and a friendly porcupine."
