  • Sunrises

    "First off, had great communication with Phil (owner). After we booked he sent out a welcome packet with information on the area, places to visit and eat. This Jonesport/Beals vacation house makes a great "base camp" with day trips we took to Lubec/Campobello, Eastport and Bar Harbor. The house was very clean and comfortable with a million dollar view. I work nights and was always up around 3am.....this was perfect to see the lobster boats heading out for the day with the majestic sun rises starting up over the islands and reach. Our day trips ended up running into the late evening so we always found great places to eat in Machias or Ellsworth on the way back from our day tripping adventures. We did manage to get one order in at the the Bayview drive up .....totally worth it! A must stop on the way to Jonesport/Beals is the Old Creamery Antique mall in Ellsworth especially if you have an hour or 2 to kill before check in time. I was stationed here 25 years ago and area hasn't changed much since then let alone the last 100 years? I would definatly stay here again and can't wait for my next trip back!"

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Great family vacation

    "Great stay at Sunrise Point. Cottage is perfect and has a beautiful view on the bay. The harbour across the bay allows for viewing of daily lobster fishing activities. Within an hours (roughly) drive to must see destinations - Schoodic Point, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbour, shopping in Bangor. The cottage was very clean - beds, bathrooms, everything. You won't be disappointed booking at Sunrise Point!"
