This is a clean and comfortable home and a great home base for exploring all that downeast Maine has to offer. We enjoyed lobster from Barney's Cove, take out right around the corner and day trips to points of interest north and south of Beals. More interesting books than you will every have time to read, games, DVDs and a great deck for enjoying the morning sun.
Thank you Annette! We loved hosting you. You are the unique traveller who knows where to find the hidden gems Maine has to offer.
Off the beaten path
Great place in a off the beat path. Very secluded area for those who do not want the hustle and bustle of a busy Maine tourist town
You guys were great!
Gem of Beals
From the very moment of booking the owners made sure our stay at their beautiful 1890's cottage was perfect. Communications request were answered almost immediately. The cottage was tastefully decorated. It was a joy to explore every room as each had it's on beauty and vibe. All rooms were very clean, the beds very comfortable and the turn table cabinet stocked with many vintage albums was a true pleasure. This is the place if your wanting to experience Beals / down east Maine unfiltered . I would have given the location five stars if the nearby bridge construction equipment wasn't blocking the bay views which is out of the owners control.
Glad you had a great time on Beals — we loved hosting you.
Regarding bridge improvements: while our own cottage's views of the water should remain unobstructed, the bridge one crosses to get to the island is indeed being worked on and so has a few cranes and construction vehicles. That said, most of the water and harbor views one encounters as one walks and drives around the island remain as as powerful and pristine as ever.
Thanks again and have a lovely summer!
Rich was such a wonderful host. Very knowledgeable about the area and very responsive via text and email. We enjoyed our vacation in Beals.
Perfection in a Peaceful Setting
Bridge View was a joy to stay at! Beautifully decorated and thoughtfully appointed, our family of 5 loved every minute. The owners were very helpful and communicative before and during our stay. The town of Beals is charming...unrefined and laid back. Friendly locals, great food, beautiful scenery and convenient location to explore Downeast Maine. A great vacation spot!
The Beals/Jonesport area is rich in natural and cultural activities.
Drive south to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park or head north to hike Maine's Bold Coast or visit the quaint coastal towns of Eastport and Lubec.

Why Richard Rose chose Beals
There are few places left in Maine like the fishing village of Beals. While most of Maine's coastal towns leading up to Bar Harbor have seen gentrification and, to some degree, homogenization, Beals and Jonesport remain authentic examples of how Maine used to be. Lonely Planet, the trusted travel guide, refers to the area as "the real Downeast."
What makes this Cottage unique
Besides the beauty of the bay, we love the home's proximity to stunning hiking trails, the availability of fresh seafood straight from the docks, the lazy pace of life in the village, and Beals proximity to the rest of Downeast Maine (Bar Harbor, Eastport, Campobello, etc.)
