About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-8)

Our cottage was built in the 1960's and remodeled in 2009. It sits on 2 private acres and 250 feet of private ocean front. We are located at the confluence of the Narraguagus River and the ocean. This brings unique wildlife and birds to the area. Close by are sections of Acadia Park, Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge, Chair Pond and Petit Manan Point hiking areas as well as , the little more difficult, hike up Pigeon Hill which has fantastic views of the coast and surrounding islands.

In season ( late July to mid August) we are only a few miles form the largest blueberry harvesting area in the world.

It is common to se deer and occasional a moose in our area.

Milbridge is a coastal fishing community. It has a rich shipbuilding history and now supports a large lobster fishing fleet. The community has shopping, a laundry, antique shops, movie theater and a medical center.

It is also a great place to just relax and read a book. Or sit out on the deck or lawn chairs and watch for eagles and see fishing boats coming and going from the bay.

On our lot we have a big open lawn great for kids to play on or for exercising you dog.

We are located in a quiet residential area with the closest neighbors several humdred feet away and screened by woods. This is truly a private setting but still close to everything.

My wife and I have owned the adjacent home for years and we both grew up in Milbridge. I am a retired Environmental Engineer and my wife is a retired Teacher.

I now commercially fish lobster in the summer months and run a coastal charter for whales , puffins, sea birds, lighthouses, Islands,and day trips to Mt Desert Island.

Besides the private beach adjacent the cottage we have access to another private breach a short walk from the cottage .

Keywords: private cottage on the ocean close to town. It is located 45 minutes from the eastern most section of Acadia Park and 1 hour from Bar harbor.

About The Owner

I am a retired environmental engineer, am a Commercial fisherman and a licensed Captain. My wife and I both grew up in Milbridge and have lived in the area all our lives.

During the summer months I do sightseeing, island tours, whale watching and puffin as well as special charters along the Maine coast in my 33 foot downeast lobster boat the Elisabeth Rose.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Down East

The cottage was available to us from an elderly lady and good friend who built it in the 1960's and it sits a few hundred feet away from and directly adjacent to our own home. We have 10 grandchildren , ages 2 to 11 and some day it will be for their use.

What makes this cottage unique

The area is close to town in a primarially residential area which is quite , peaceful and private. The bird and other wild life is abundant and the sunsets are spectacular. For those not familiar with the tids it is interesting to see the changes continually occuring as the tide comes and goes.

My husband and our two daughters (ages 8 and 5) stayed at the cottage in August and had a fantastic time. Jim and Sue were delightful, friendly and welcoming. We spent many mornings on the beach looking for sea glass and shells...the girls loved the beach and the big lawn with plenty of room for cartwheels. Beautiful sunsets. Peaceful. Private. The cottage was comfortable and relaxing, and we appreciated the furnishings. The entire experience far exceeded our expectations. We were happy to just hang out at the cottage and on the beach...but did venture out to do a few nearby hikes (Pigeon Hill, and another one farther down that road) and to Schoodic Point...gorgeous. Thank you Jim and Sue for a fun, memorable and relaxing experience!

Phenomenal vacation spot! The cottage is so pretty and clean and fresh, the deck is so relaxing, the yard is so huge, the view is so phenomenal, the water is so beautiful and the owners are so warm and friendly and accommodating! Jim and Sue have created an oasis in this quaint and peaceful cottage, minutes from the grocery store and delicious restaurants! :) We highly recommend the hike to Pigeon Hill and Jim's whale watching boat trip!

A much needed vacation. ..

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had never been to Milbridge before.This was certainly a terrifically enjoyable vacation. Our hosts Sue and Jim we're extremely helpful with anything we needed.The view from our home for the week was simply breath-taking. The dog loved to run around the large yard and exploring the private beach.I went on a whale watch on Jim's boat and got so close that you could practically reach out and touch them.Milbridge is a charming little town, but it's not a busy town with lots of attractions like Wells.It's main attraction is the sea views and the quiet.Also when you come down be aware that there are no restaurants open past 8.I would highly reccomend this house to anyone who wants a memorable vacation.

We Loved It !!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your little cottage - It was charming, clean, and everything we needed for a week on the ocean. We enjoyed watching the changing tide, combing the beach, and climbing on the rocks. Many thanks to Jim and Sue for their wonderful hospitality. The ride on Jim's lobster boat was a highlight of our trip - seeing lighthouses, seals, islands, and puffins. It was also a great base camp for our day trips to Acadia Nat'l Park, Bar Harbor, McLellan Park, Pidgeon Hill Trail, West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. Perfect location for watching sunsets over the ocean !.
