  • 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."

  • Another wonderful stay at the WaterColor Cottage

    "This is my second time staying at the WaterColor Cottage, which I loved the first time, when I was with my brother and nephew, and I loved it this time, too! The first time was during a heat wave a year ago, and still it was more than comfortable. This year the weather was idyllic and the cottage is rustic without being primitive, artful without being fussy, and everything was lovely and comfortable. For conscious and conscientious people. A true retreat."

  • Secluded Maine getaway

    "What a great place! The pictures and description of the house were as advertised, maybe better. The owners met us upon arrival to ensure we had everything we needed. They were excellent to deal with at every step of the rental process including the prompt return of our security & pet deposit. We brought our miniature schnauzer with no issues. She was able to use the fenced in yard allowing us to not have to put her on a leash every time she needed to go out. Our three children, ages 11-16, loved hanging out, climbing on the rocky coast in the back yard and playing board games left by the owners. The television has a satellite connection and was perfect when we wanted to use it. The WiFi was adequate for our needs, but if someone wanted fast connection speeds they may be disappointed. This home is truly secluded which we thoroughly enjoyed, but make no mistake, it is secluded. The nearest store of any kind is 15 minutes away by car. The owners directed us to the nearest fishing dock (10 min drive) where we went on two separate occasions to buy lobster and clams. The house is very well equipped for all of your cooking needs. The washer and drying worked well allowing us to catch up on laundry during our long road trip. The deck overlooks the water and is a perfect place to do nothing. The home, both inside and out, has lots of places to sit down with others or by yourself. Doors and windows all have screens allowing a wonderful breeze to move through the house. Acadia National Park is about 1 ½ hours away and worth the drive. Plan to spend a full day if you decide to make the trip. We did not use the two apartments on the property but they are right next to the main house and would be perfect for a larger gathering."

  • 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!"
