About KATIE DOVE BEACH FARM
Hello, we are the owners Peter and Cindy enjoying a fall day on the beach at the Kate Dove Beach Farm. Libby joined us for the day who lives next door to us in Machiasport which is just across the bay.
KATIE DOVE BEACH FARM purchased this Farmhouse in 2012
Why KATIE DOVE BEACH FARM chose Whiting
We are located in the heart of Down East Maine where you can vacation and relax without all the traffic, commercialization, and over priced lodging and dining you find south of here. You often hear the saying, "the way life should be" or "the way we remember Maine" applies to this part of Maine perfectly.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The most picturesque lobster and fishing village on the East Coast is Cutler Maine and just minutes away. A must see is Jasper Beach, one of two beaches in the world with this type of polished rock formations. You are in the heart of many scenic hiking trails. Historic Burnam Tavern and Fort Obrien will introduce you to the real history of the first Naval battle of the American Revolution also called The "Lexington of the Sea. " Visit nearby Canada for a day and tour President Roosevelt's summer getaway on Campabello Island. We will have many brochures and additional information available on other activities at the Katie Dove when you arrive.

Down East Experience...
The hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming at Katy Dove Beach Farm providing easy directions, a history of the land and recommendations to a favorite hike not on the maps. Western Head Trail met our coastal hike imaginations, it was a stunning trail! We enjoyed the setting of the back porch with the view of the bay and found some comfort in this older farm. I’m certain Peter will have resolved the smell issue of water for his next arrival. Thank you for our down east experience Peter and Cindy.
We explained to our guests that the water odor is very common in this area due to the sulfur content in the well water. If the water is not used every day, the sulfur in the water combined with the anti corrosive material in new hot water heaters, will produce a smell. Our guests arrived late in the season and only stayed two nights which may not have been ample time for the water to air itself out.
We do not believe this was a fair rating (3 star) and question the amount of thought that went into this review, especially from guests who address themselves as "two retired educators."
We will let our past reviews speak for themselves. Peter and Cindy.
Katie Dove Beach Farm will always hold a special place in our hearts!
Our stay at Katie Dove Beach Farm far exceeded our expectations. The home itself was charming and very well equipped with anything you could need, but on top of that, the scenery was heavenly. We walked down to our private beach multiple times a day, in between our outings to town, and our other hiking/outdoor destinations. My children and I absolutely loved our stay and cannot wait to book our next vacation!
Cozy Farmhouse in a Great Location
The house is comfortable and the first floor has many large windows to let in light and cool breezes. Although the view of the bay is limited from the house, the property has maintained walking paths that will take you to down to the beachfront or a ramble through wildflower meadows. There's 20 acres to the property, with plenty of room for families to play in the backyard and sit around a fire pit.
The location of the house is also ideal for many Downeast Maine activities. It is a 15 minute drive to groceries and shopping in Machias, 10 minutes to beautiful Cutler harbor, 15 minutes to the Cutler Bold Coast Public Lands, less than an hour to the easternmost U.S. point at Quoddy Head. It's also only 30 minutes from Jasper Beach, Rogue' Bluff State Park, and some of Maine's best fishing lakes.
A Piece of Heaven
Our stay at the Katie Dove Beach Farm was a treat from start to finish. The house was clean, well-appointed, tastefully and simply decorated, and spacious, with two three-season porches and a deck---allowing for relaxing spots for any weather. The walk through the wild flower meadow to the beach was a delight (wear bug spray in early morning or evening!). The beach was lovely, too, with plenty of privacy and a beautiful view at high or low tide. Low tide was a surprise---acres of mudflats with the water in the far distance, so no way to swim, but it was a pleasure anyway and a great spot for observing all the sea birds. We cooked nearly all our meals on the grill and found everything we needed in the kitchen. There are fantastic hiking trails just up the coast---the Cutler Preserve is a must if you want to truly experience the "bold" of the Bold Coast. And just a little further along Rt 191 is a hidden gem---a hiking trail that drops you onto a pristine cobble beach---Broad Brook Cove.
I highly recommend the Katie Dove Beach Farm for anyone that wants a truly relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting!
Great location, lots to do nearby.
Great property with access to a Private Maine beach and quick access to cool places like west quoddy head light house and their beautiful hiking trails, Jasper Beach, chocolate tasting in Lubec, and more. Great place for a small family with kids. Very relaxing. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Only drawback was the full size beds as we are used to a queen.
Best Find yet!!!
Plenty of nooks and crannies to find that place to relax with a good book. Large, clean, comfortable layout with spots to get away from it all. Furnishings and amenities met every need. Cupboards and fridge surprisingly well stocked. Apples In the yard ripe for picking. Kind of reminded me of the house in "The Big Chill". It would be a great place for a reunion of several good friends or couples. Lots of sleeping options. Two full baths. Washer & dryer....... Only negative, was no wifi so couldn't look up things to see and do on my iPad. Still gets 5 stars.
