About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Cove Cottage sits on the edge of the harbor and has a clear view of the business at hand. The entire harbor is lined with docks that assist each family in lobstering. While most other harbors have lost their waterfront to development, Corea fishermen have always retained a right of way so that their families can maintain access to their trade. Directly across from the cottage are four of these docks and they are worked from daily. From the cottage's front porch guests can have an intimate view of the business of lobstering as well as watch the boats come and go.
The cottage is not just your ordinary weekly rental. Many of our first time guests request a second week and are usually disappointed to find the cottage is already rented. Many return the next year with the more appropriate two weeks reservation and are always truly happy at the end of their stay. For 2014 the cottage can be rented only from Saturday to Saturday July 5 through September 6. All other rentals, beginning in May and ending in October require a 4-night minimum. Most couples are tickled to find such an intimate snuggery away from the crowds of Bar Harbor and other commercial destinations.
Another great attraction is bird watching. Behind the cottage is a large osprey nest that is easily observed from the back porch. Besides this resident bird, Corea is home to an astounding number of wild birds. There are resident eagles that perch on the rocks off the cottage as well as a treasure trove of seabirds that call the harbor home. Loons, cormorants, blue herons, several kinds of ducks, and a wide variety of seagulls are observed daily. For the more intrepid, watching the puffins on Petit Manan by renting a guide for the day is the way to go. It should also be noted that the road into Corea is surrounded by an enormous heath that has been deeded to the Petit Manan Wildlife Sanctuary, and they have designated the heath as a bird sanctuary. Birdwatching trails exist throughout.
Meticulous about a clean and well-appointed house, we want our cottage to be appreciated by couples and singles who want a first class rental that can be a comfortable home when not out touring. Because some of our guests are allergic to pet hair, we unhappily cannot allow pets.
Our guests have come for the incredible beauty that exists on this part of the coast as well as the quiet and privacy that Corea provides. There is not one store in Corea. For the past two seasons we have enjoyed a lunch-on-the-wharf very near the cottage which has been a friendly spot to get a top-notch lobster roll or a lobster grilled cheese sandwich accompanied by a spectacular view. All hope it returns for the 2014 season! Chapter Two is an artists' cooperative specializing in books and hooked rugs, as well as the arts and crafts of local artisans. Outside of fishing there is no commercial traffic. This in itself attracts those from a more complicated world, as life in Corea seems to take one back in time. We hope you will choose to spend time here with us. The Weeks
