Property description

This peaceful and private oceanfront cottage is nestled in a private cove, surrounded by 30 wooded acres. Guests have often described it as 'a sweet little cottage", "a real find". Guests venture out to explore the Down East area and are delighted to return to our restful cottage. Our non-smoking cottage is situated on Tom Leighton Point. The cottage has a master bedroom with double bed, Open Living, Kitchen and Dining Area and full bath.

One of Down East Maine's 'secret' spectaculars is McClellan Park, a short walk from the cottage. You will feel the pounding surf, have your heart soar with eagles, and be totally enthralled with all the wonders that the coast can offer. For a virtual tour go to

Watch bald eagles, terns, loons, numerous waterfowl and seabirds. Enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Talk to local fishermen at the town pier and purchase their fresh catch right off the boat. In Milbridge, find convenient access to a new supermarket, buy fresh caught lobster right off the boat, banking, Historial Society Museum, drug store, health center and services. Stroll down sidewalks and stop in at the museums. Dine at local restaurants: a family style restaurant/pub, Milbridge House (breakfast & lunch) plus a well liked Mexican restaurant.
