About the Property
4 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom upstairs + half bathroom downstairs, sleeps 6
Stay in this heirloom 1906 Queen Anne Victorian oceanfront home on the Moosebec Reach at the edge of historic Jonesport, a working lobstering village in quaint Downeast Maine.
Wake up each morning to the rising sun and the sound of lobster boats. Walk out the door and have your morning coffee at your own private beach. Stroll down to a nearby lobster co-op to pick inexpensive fresh lobster for your dinner to go with the local blueberries (Washington County produces 80% of the nation's blueberries!) to bake into pies and pancakes or just to eat by the handfuls.
In the evenings, watch the sun set over the water of the Moosebec Reach and savor the reflections on the water of Beals and Great Wass Islands. This historic waterfront Victorian house, which has been restored and equipped with antiques as well as with modern appliances, is perfect for guests wanting to stay in an architectural gem by the ocean.
Jonesport is close to Machias, home to the Blueberry Festival in August, as well as the Historic Burnham Tavern (1770) and the University of Maine with its fitness center open to the public. There are numerous opportunities for antiquing in the surrounding areas.

Visit Jonesport in un-touristed Downeast Maine where life in a lobstering village hasn't changed much over the years. Across the bridge from us are historic Beals Island and Great Wass Island Preserve with hiking trails and miles of shoreline. It is only a short drive to grocery stores, hardware stores, ATMs, and small local restaurants, and there are numerous places in town to buy lobster fresh off the boats and other seafood (mussels, crab, etc.). More high-end restaurants are a 20-30 minute drive away. Explore the Cherryfield Historic District and Winter Harbor with their amazing range of 18th and 19th century residential architecture. Take a boat tour of remote islands to observe puffins in their native habitat or visit island lighthouses. Jonesport even has a sardine factory museum and Historical Society! Don't miss the Jonesport Lobster Boat Races in July, the Machias Blueberry Festival in August, the Eastport Pirate Festival in September, and the fall foliage in October! Visit the historic W. Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec which is the easternmost point in the U.S. The Roosevelt Campobello International Park (summer home of FDR) and Canada are just an hour and a half away by car (bring your passports).
Other Activities: walking in nature preserve on Great Wass Island and Cutler bay.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are husband and wife psychologists who live in Los Angeles, and we were fortunate to be able to bring our twin children (who now are adults) to Jonesport for the past 10 years.
Why the Owner Chose Jonesport, ME, USA:
We vacationed regularly in Maine for many years, and fell in love with this Victorian home in 2006. Since then we have lovingly restored the house, and furnished it with Maine antiques. We look forward to spending a month each year in our home in Jonesport, and we welcome sharing our house with guests who are interested in staying in an historic oceanfront Maine residence.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Moosabec reach is tidal, meaning that the water rises and falls 12 feet two times per day; at times the water is 30 feet from the house, but when the tide is out, you can walk in the exposed seabed looking for sea glass and other treasures (we have waterproof boots in the basement). From the kitchen breakfast nook we watch the continual action of sea birds and lobster boats. From the chaise lounge in the master bedroom we love reading as we look out over the water. When we purchased the house we were particularly taken by the well-preserved tin ceiling in the formal dining room, the pocket doors between parlors, the green tile in the back parlor, the original butler's pantry, the wooden staircases and banister, and the Queen Anne architecture. We love sitting in the Adirondack chairs and looking over the Reach at sunset, where we have a view of the water but also the sculpture in the adjacent park next door. We always enjoy going to the lobster co-op just down the street to buy fresh lobster just off the boat. We have excellent beds so sleeping is a pleasure.
