Perfect Spot on Gouldsboro Bay
"Our third year spending a week in this family cottage on Gouldsboro Bay, and have already asked Laura to book us for 2016. Quiet, rustic, oceanfront with a nice view and breezes off the bay through the screened porch even on hot days, just the way we like it. We recommend the Darthia Farmstand in Gouldsboro, Painted Pepper Farm's phenomenal goat's milk gelato, and the local farmer's markets (Milbridge or Machias) for fresh blueberry pies. Hikes nearby at Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge, with dogs welcome on leash, and up Pigeon Hill (on the road out to Petit Manan) are perfect for hot summer days. Looking forward to next year!"

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. It was magical from the first moment we arrived. In the evening we easily lit the wall mounted gas lights and cranked up the old Victrola to listen to some vintage jazz 78s while we cooked dinner in the well equipped kitchen. You don't see or hear neighbors from the cottage. It's like your own private corner of Maine with gulls wheeling above and the sound of lobster boats puttering around in the bay. And the sea air mingled with the spicy scent of cedars and pines, is absolutely intoxicating. This was our favorite rental ever and we definitely plan to visit again soon."

"my husband, myself and our 2 year old dog returned to the cabin this summer. We loved it so much last year that we knew we wanted to return. The cabin is very secluded and equipped with everything one would need for a comfortable stay. the only sounds to hear came from nature, crows and loons calling every evening and we caught several trout fishing off the dock. We love this spot so much, so many opportunities for hiking and the outdoors. the nearby town of Machias is small and no touristy which is really great. This is just one of the best vacation spots we've been to."

"My husband and I spent a fun filled week at Tide Watch. The house was beautiful with all of the comforts of home..big comfy bed, nice entertainment options and well equipped kitchen. Add in the fantastic view, direct access to the beach, and wonderful deck and large lawn for stargazing, and you've got a great place for hanging out or serving as a base camp for exploring the Down East coast. We brought our motorcycle and kayaks with us and trekked up.and down the coast from Acadia to Quoddy Head..great day trips, all made possible by Tide Watch ' s convenient central location. Quaint towns all around and plenty of restaurant options for good local fare as well as convenient shopping. Will definitely recommend to family and friends, and look forward to visiting again."
