  • Our Second Stay As Nice As Our First

    "This is our second year staying in Laura's family's cottage on Gouldsboro Bay, and we hope not the last. It is just as we like it, a bit off the beaten path, a bit rustic but with all the conveniences, oceanfront with a nice view, quiet, and a screened porch - exactly right. Walked with the dog almost every day back to Rogers Point Road, then left out on to the point to the nice cobble beach looking out the Bay. Also highly recommend the hikes a short drive away at Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge, with dogs welcome on leash. Hoping to return to this Gouldsboro Bay camp next year!"

    "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."

  • Obvious that the owners go out of their way to ensure their guests have a wonderful stay

    "It is a beautifully renovated house with lots of modern features and details from the heated floors in the bathrooms to the modern updated kitchen. The owners were generous in providing everything we could possibly need in the kitchen, laundry, linens, towels - and all in practically new condition. From our past experiences renting homes, this is rare. It is obvious the owners make the extra effort to ensure that their guests are comfortable and have everything they need for their stay. There was even fresh fire wood placed in the fire ring out back waiting for us! Every room in the house is furnished and decorated in a way that invites you to want to stay and linger. Every window in the house has a view. Every bedroom has a view of the water. The back two bedrooms have the most amazing views overlooking the water right from your bed. Imagine waking up to incredible views of the sun rising over the water every morning, or just lying there in the middle of the day thinking you might take a nap but finding that you just can't stop taking in the incredible panoramic views. Every bed was comfortable, including the top of the line sleeper sofa. The only shades on the main level are for the three windows that surround this sleeper sofa in the corner of the room. It was all that was needed. Our elderly family member who has mobility issues said it was an exceptional sofa bed and well designed bathroom. Our elderly family member even found a chair among the comfy seating area to be high enough and supportive enough from which to maneuver in and out easily. The house sits right in the middle of a working fishing community and just feet from the edge of the water. It also sits very close to nearby houses, working docks and a tidal lobster pound facility. Despite the close proximity to these things, it was very quiet and we felt like we had plenty of privacy. Only the birds in the morning were loud. Our elderly family member loved being entertained by this quiet activity near the house when the rest of us left for hiking adventures. Often we never heard the neighbors head out on their fishing boats (it is that quiet!). Sometimes we could hear the church bell tolling on the hour. We loved it all. Definitely takes you to a different time and place - and this beautiful house made us want to stay forever. Owner also provides lots of recommendations on where to eat, go, see and do... (all good!)"

  • 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!"
