An amazing gem

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week in a stunning location. Six of us (a three year old, two 8 year olds, an 11 year old, and two adults) drove up from Maryland to spend a week here this past August. All of us had a great time and had plenty to do. We spent much of the time on the property- the kids spent hours playing on the rocks (both during high and low tide) - collecting seaweed and exploring tide pools while we either joined them or relaxed up by the house. There were wild blueberries all over so we collected them to make muffins and a cake. We took some day trips up north- Campobello Island (Canada) and hiked the Bold Coast (highly worth the drive) and went into to Machias a couple of times. Overall an amazing, peaceful, relaxing vacation in one of the most beautiful locations in Maine I've been to yet. Can't say enough good things about it and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful home and setting

  • 5 of 5

The home and setting are beautiful, the view breathtaking and very relaxing. Slightly difficult to get kayak down to the beach as well as beach access, however ultimately well worth the effort. The daily visit from the deer family special as well.

Peaceful & serene taste of downeast Maine

  • 5 of 5

Thank you April and Steve for sharing your beautiful home with us. The surroundings were exquisite. Peaceful, serene, and remote. Despite many houses in the area, they were all nestled well within the forest and could not be seen. We literally saw only one person in the area during the entire week. We had the entire area to ourselves including the wonderful cove where we spent a great deal of time exploring. We heard only the sounds of nature. No planes, no cars. Just the sound of waves crashing into the rocks, birds in the forest, insects in the bushes. A family of deer. The days were sunny and warm except for one day when it rained a little and the fog rolled in. It made for a more dramatic landscape and better pictures. Nights were crisp and cool with the sea air blowing through the windows, and you could see every star in the universe. No light pollution. The house was as described. Comfortable and inviting, and spacious enough for our family. The master bedroom had a g The Wi-Fi was spotty, but truthfully, I wish it didn't work at all. Cell service, too, was spotty, but that was also OK.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very favorable review. Your description of the property and how much you and your family enjoyed your stay give April and me great satisfaction. Mack Cove is a special place that we fell in love with at first sight. The house is really a home and we strive to keep it fresh by limiting the rentals. By the way, Fairpoint has finally replaced the router and wifi is running perfectly. We hope to host you and your family again. April and Steve

Positively the perfect getaway! We enjoyed the amazing views, gorgeous property, luxury home and privacy. The "remote" location is accessible to all the tourist hot spots (about an hour to Acadia), but you can easily never leave the cove... except to fetch fresh lobster at Mother Shuckers! We had our family of 4 adults and 2 boys and were very comfortable in the home (with a bedroom to spare). There was an eagle in the cove one afternoon, and a doe and her two fawns passed through the back yard. We kayaked, fished, and swam right in the cove. The boys raced their bikes along the long driveway and private road. Sunrise and sunset views brought the perfect beginning and end to each day!

Perfect, perfect, perfect sojourn!

  • 5 of 5

There are no superlatives to trump the other reviews! Everything was most enjoyable and the property was absolutely perfect! Words can't describe the tranquility and splendor of Mack Cove!! From the moment my family and I arrived, we knew we were at home and could relax. April was prompt, ever so courteous and helpful, and has brought an elegant vacation home to a great market. We enjoyed cooking in the more-than-fully stocked kitchen, and having the cove in our front yard. All of the coastal towns were at our disposal, and there were no hard driving days for us once there. I highly recommend hiking the Cutler public lands and Eastport, as well as Lubec and Machias. Tradewinds Charters in Eastport-MUST DO! As well as visiting Nadine at Mother Shucker's--lobsters! Our stay for a family of five was quite comfortable; everyone had plenty of comfortable space and there is more than enough room to stretch out at the cove or at Roque Bluffs State Park. We plan to get away here at Mack Cove again; escape the bustle and explore DownEast!
