WaterColor Cottage in beautiful Roque Bluffs, Maine, offers guests a unique coastal vacation experience. WaterColor is the owners' second home and artist's/writer's retreat, lovingly maintained and generously shared with our guests. We offer discounts for two guests (one bedroom) for a full week's stay for one week or longer: $900. Individual nights are billed at $250/night for 4 guests and $200/night for two guests. We must approve pets in advance, so please ask about your furry friend before you book.
As our guest, you will enjoy the art -filled open living areas, beautiful hand-crafted furnishings, quality linens and kitchen ware, perennial gardens and stone patio tucked into a fenced backyard. In the evenings, light a fire in the wood stove before venturing out to the garden to view the stars and late summer meteor showers.
Stroll along the shore and watch local lobstermen and women check their traps, rent a kayak (or bring your own) and paddle in the Bay or at Roque Bluffs State Park just down the road. Enjoy local lobsters, mussels, and clams fresh from the Bay!
WaterColor Cottage, across the lane from Little Kennebec Bay, has easy access for launching a kayak or canoe, or simply sitting on the rocks watching the eagles soar and the seals play. Enjoy a hike through the woods, past blueberry barrens, and along the shore -- all from your front door.
The Sunrise Trail, a rails to trails gravel path, stretches from Ellsworth to Calaia Maine and runs through Machias, providing wonderful opportunities for biking, walking, running, and snowmobile/ATV adventures.
Just seven miles from Machias, our vacation home is for rent by owner and located outside of the crowds, close to nature, and within minutes of East Machias, Machiasport, Jonesport, and Cutler. Day trips to Eastport, Lubec, Campobello Island in Canada, and Acadia National Park offer visitors a distinctive Down East vacation experience.
