About the Property

1 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4), Living Room, Beautiful Ocean View

The Barn has been lovingly renovated into a charming seaside cottage. It is located on private acreage four miles from the village of Jonesport, across from Roque Island.

This unique oceanfront house exudes character and is furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and tasteful artifacts. The Barn is a place where you'll immediately feel at home, and by the time you leave, you'll feel you've made a new and treasured friend. It's a peaceful get-away where you can get in tune with the sounds of nature.

Listen to the surf come ashore on the popple stone beach, enjoy the colors and textures of the lovely perennial and vegetable gardens, or take the path to the cliff side where you can marvel at the panoramic view of the ocean--perfect for sunrises.

Later in the day, stroll to a pristine sand beach where you may find some wonderful shells or bits of sea glass. Then relax on the front porch where you can watch the sun set over the open fields and two freshwater ponds.
