Recent Down East reviews

  • The perfect DownEast vacation cottage!

    "The cottage was perfect, the hosts friendly and accomodating, and the views better than spectacular. We visited the Reversing Falls in Pembroke, The Salmon hatcheries and research centers in Columbia Falls and East Machias, another clam hatchery on Wass Island, hiking trails from Gouldsboro to Lubec. Great location. Will return. Sooooo much to do, so little time. Can't beat DownEast Maine and the people who live there."

  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • Secluded and Relaxing

    "My wife and I came to the cabin for a week this July with our two big dogs. The water temp was perfect and the dogs ran off-leash the whole time. The entire time we only saw one person on our end of the lake. It's a great place to unplug, unwind and enjoy Down East."
