  • 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!"

  • Peaceful retreat on the water's edge

    "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!!"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful rental, all necessities of home provided

    "This home near the East Machias River is one of the best rentals we have ever stayed at in the last thirty years. We hope to return in two years for another two - four week stay. It is centrally located for trips north to Canada and south to Bar Harbor. Machias has a great festival in August. Lobster is available from the lobster pounds and from fishermen; the Hartnett's even cook the lobster for you. The house is stocked with everything you need for a comfortable vacation. The landlords are gracious and helpful. The flowers are more than beautiful around the property."
