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!

Great retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 10 yr old son, and I had a wonderful week at this beautiful home! The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in away from home and the grounds are perfect for relaxing! We enjoyed hiking the Great Wass Preserve and visiting Machias Seal Island preserve to see the Puffins as well as playing in the cove and relaxing out back.

This was our first time vacationing in the state of Maine and I couldn't be more pleased with how it all turned out.

First, April was terrific from the first bit of communication to the last. Her upbeat attitude and quick responses made my decision very easy to make the choice to vacation at her house. I have rented many homes through VRBO in many locations and my family felt this was the best choice I had ever made.

The area was just the way she described and the house was perfect. We arrived late on the day of our arrival, but April made sure the lights were on and we felt very welcomed the moment we stepped through the door. She was attentive too and made sure we knew about some other incidentals to make us very comfortable.

The weather was perfect which incidentally was not April's doing, but I'm sure she had a hand in making sure the deer appearing in the yard every morning was certainly her doing. The peace and quiet of the home was one of the best parts. Also, the dark, clear nights for great nighttime pictures of the stars was exactly what we wanted.

Only thing we felt would have been better was vacationing here for two weeks - one week is just not enough to soak in all that the area has to offer.

Thank you for a memorable vacation!!
