About the property

3-BR, 2-bath private apartment, handicap-accessible, on 3.5 acres, sand beach

Late June bulletin in a busy season:

One of our travelers has had to change plans, and we suddenly have the week of July 22-29 (checkout on AM of 29th) available.

Our only other remaining High Season week is the last week of August (starting 26th), through Labor Day.

We do have dates open in the fall--which is beautiful here on the coast, and less crowded--as well as other year-round availability.

Now here's the description:


Hello! Here at Fish Point we're unique in welcoming not only summer and fall vacationers, but also, year-round, business travelers or medical personnel needing a longer stay, and people desiring artist-retreat rentals: writers, visual artists, and composers/songwriters. *

While we know some travelers look for a stand-alone house, this is not "just an apartment." As one happy guest remarked when he first walked in: "You have a palazzo [a palace] here!" We're highly respectful of our guests' needs for peace and privacy. Meanwhile, we're available for special needs, or to help in emergencies.

Our home was built in 2002, on a 3-1/2 acre property with a fascinating Revolutionary War history. The house is right along quiet Fickett's Point Road, on the back side of Narraguagus Bay just minutes from Milbridge's center. It's a great road for scenic walks & biking. Cross the broad field behind our house, and you come to a footbridge leading to our own wooded peninsula, used only by our family and guests, which gives you 270-degree views of the ocean, bay, town, and spectacular sunsets across the water. Enjoy the sights from the trail, the benches, or take a meal out to the picnic table! Sunsets are spectacular out there.

A set of stairs leads you down to the beach, one of the rare sand beaches on the Maine coast--along with the large boulders characteristic of the area. We're near the town marina, and kayak rentals are nearby.

We live in the adjoining house, which we've made sonically and visually private from the 1300 SF apartment. The apartment is all on the ground floor, with its own private entrances, garden, and a patio/terrace facing the water. The facility is handicap-accessible, with wide doorways and hall, and flooring of tile, wood and low-nap carpeting--smooth surfaces for walkers or wheelchairs. We have a golf cart in which we can ferry less walking-abled guests out to the Point on request.

Bedrooms are large for this part of Maine. Two have queen beds, and one a double bed with electric comfort controls. One Queen BR has its own private bathroom with shower. The other two BR's share a bathroom with a large tiled shower. The fully appointed kitchen has excellent appliances, including dishwasher and high quality LP gas range/oven. And of course a lobster pot! The dining area is off the large living room, and the apartment has its own washer & dryer. Decor and furnishings are charming, restful--and unique, not off-the-rack.

Other amenities: New flat-screen television with Direct TV, Netflix, internet music programs and other bundled services. High-speed DSL. Most cell services work fine in our location. Access to landline on request. Small library, games for rainy days, etc.

Since acquiring this home in April 2014, we've been gradually restoring the lovely garden beds that surround the entire house. They combine native and wild plants with more formal plantings. The apartment has its own "secret garden" area, and private patio with a view across the fields and bay.

Though 2014 was our first year at Fish Point, we've owned a vacation cottage in Milbridge since 2008, and have rented to travelers since 2009. We've gotten raves from our renters at both properties! (See note about the other one in "Owner Story.")

Guests often tell us how happy they are about our geographic location, too, since we're about equidistant from Mt. Desert Island (Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor) and the farthest-east coastal towns like Lubeck and Eastport -- and Campobello Island! Do bring passports if you plan to visit Campobello, since it's Canadian. It's easy to make a day or half-day trip to these famous, fascinating vacation spots from our place.

2016 was the 100th ANNIVERSARY year of ACADIA NATIONAL PARK. The main part of the Park is on Mount Desert Island, about 50 minutes from us. But a less-known section, Schoodic Point, is just about 20 minutes away, and is quieter, fewer crowds, same breath-taking views. Schoodic Point, the part of Acadia that Mainers tend to frequent, also has a fine information and conference center and campground, and is near many art and craft studios.

* Our guests' vacation and retreat rental fees help to support the work of Sunrise County Arts Institute, the small Maine non-profit we founded in 2014 as a resource for quality music, theater, writing and visual arts activities in Milbridge and the DownEast/Acadia area.

About Danielle Woerner

We're seasoned vacation rental owner-operators-- have provided accommodations at our charming cape house across the bay to satisfied vacationers since 2009. Now we live in this beautiful area full-time.


NOTE: Our other waterfront property, VRBO 341321, is a home we plan to sell. Its current lovely tenants are hoping to buy it. But circumstances can change! And we'll know more about that status later in 2017. If you don't find the dates you're looking for at Fish Point, or if you're looking to buy a house in the area, inquire!


We began camping in Maine 20 years ago, working our way up the coast from York and Booth Bay till we discovered Acadia. In 2008, we bought a 3BR cottage in Milbridge as a vacation home; renovated it; and fell in love with the beauty of the area, the community, and the neighborliness of DownEasters.

In 2014, when we acquired Fish Point, we moved from NY's mid-Hudson Valley to live here full-time, and to open a small music & arts center for the area. We're a musician (singer, voice teacher, with a Bard B.A. and a Songwriting Master's from Berklee), and a retired IBM IT professional. We have over 20 years of DIY home renovation under our belts, too.

Danielle Woerner purchased this estate in 2014

Why Danielle Woerner chose Down East

We knew 10 Fish Point for over a decade before it became ours; it was previously owned by a good friend in the area.

This is an absolutely unique property, located so close to town, yet on a peaceful, scenic road, and on 3.5 acres with its own oceanside nature preserve and a sand beach, so rare in Maine. It truly is a paradise.

One feels in touch with the infinite here, in the most intimate way. Sunrises, dramatic cloud patterns and sunsets spread across the horizon. During the day, the water views go all the way out to sea; and there is the Point, and beach, right here on the property. Eagles, hawks and ospreys circle high above, gulls soar, songbirds chatter in the trees closer by. Wildlife includes foxes and bobcats as well as more familiar animals. To go outdoors on a clear night is to be surrounded by a bowl of stars, that become brighter and more numerous the longer you look.

The 5,500 SF Cape Cod style house was built in 2002 as a dual-use facility: a private home, plus an attached, flexible, handicap-accessible apartment that is a completely independent living unit. The house is conveniently close to the road for walking, biking, and winter access; while the broad field behind it has water views and provides a scenic entry to the footbridge that leads to the serenity of the Point.

When the property became available, it was perfect for all our needs and wishes now--including serving a community that needs and wants more resources in the musical and theater arts, for youth and adults. The facility includes a large studio and office space for our Institute, in addition to the rental apartment for visitors like you, and separate home space for us.

What makes this estate unique

For vacationers, this is a special opportunity.

- We make the apartment available for standard vacation rentals during selected weeks of summer high season and early fall. Then,

- From mid-September through mid-May, our priority is retreat rentals for writers, composers, songwriters and visual artists who want a working vacation, or residencies for teaching artists whom our Maine non-profit organization, Sunrise County Arts Institute (SCAI), brings in for special presentations.

- We also fit in regular family getaway, business travel and physician locum tenens rentals during low season on an as-available basis.

One special writers' retreat period is the whole month of November each year, when we offer special National Novel Writers' Month (NaNoWriMo) arrangements for participating writers, including optional support events. You can book just a long weekend, a week, or the whole month, as scheduling permits.

We're raising funds to enable SCAI to provide arts-activity scholarships for young people in this area. Many wouldn't otherwise be able to participate in the private music lessons and summer youth theater programs offered by SCAI. Rental fees from summer guests and artist retreats, beyond covering the property's operating expenses, help us provide these activities.

When we purchased this property and were renovating the building, we installed sound barriers between the living/studio spaces and the apartment, to keep that unit a quiet space for our guests. We're considerate about the scheduling of sound-producing activities.

Of course, if you'd like to make some noise of your own and have a voice lesson or two while you're staying with us--or a family singing workshop--that can be arranged!

We can also steer you to special music and arts events in the region during your stay. And we're developing eco-arts workshop activities. We provide all guests with a several-page list of our own favorite attractions, eateries, shops, etc., in advance.

Wonderful anniversary trip!

  • 5 of 5

Heartfelt thanks to Danielle and Claude for their hospitality! We had a wonderful stay at Fish Point and if I lived there, I'd spend nearly all my time down at the point -- absolutely gorgeous!!! Even though the water was frigid, off came my tennis shoes so I could put my feet into the water down on the beautiful little beach. Be sure to try to catch a glimpse of the little "church" with the stained glass window hidden in the woods down at the point. During our visit, we were blessed to be invited to attend a concert performed by Danielle and had a lovely song dedicated for our anniversary stay -- priceless. The list of have-to-see points of interest and restaurants provided by Danielle were invaluable -- we visited The Wrinkled Pickle twice. Her communication before and during our stay was great -- I felt like we were friends even before we met in person. Schoodic Point in Acadia (the locals' choice for visiting the park) will go down in history as one of my most favorite places to visit. I got so close down on the rocks that the water hit me from my feet to my knees!!! If you visit, you'll understand how awesome that is! :) And the stars up in the sky -- amazing. How many times I wish I could have captured that beauty with my camera. Such a wonderful stay. My husband and I have already talked about hoping to visit again some day and treat our kids to the hospitality and beauty found at Fish Point. Thanks again, Danielle and Claude, for the sweet gift of the wine upon our arrival and for sharing your home with us for one of our best anniversary trips yet.

Owner's Response: Sabrina, what a joy it was to meet you both and get to know you a little! and to be able to contribute something to the specialness of your anniversary trip. So many of the things you describe about not only Fish Point, but the area we live in, are exactly why we feel so blessed to be here too. (And yes, when I walk outside on a clear night, I feel as if I've stepped under a bowl of stars.) It was a privilege to share it all with you, and we'd absolutely love to have you come back with the rest of your family some day. Have a great year! Warm regards from us both.

Exactly as described...

Danielle was great to work with. The apartment was just as described. It's a short walk out to the private point of land with secure steps down to the waterfront. If you're looking for quiet and seclusion, this is the place for you.

A great apartment to rent.

  • 5 of 5

Fish Point apartment is clean, spacious and A/C is not needed. Just open the windows and feel the cool breeze and smell the salty air from the bay. The point is a nice place to meditate and just appreciate the beautiful scenery. Danielle and Claude are great hosts...very nice couple and they are there if you need anything. Their puppy named Pongo is just adorable. Our first family vacation in Maine was memorable and highly recommend the apartment.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly charming between the incredible view and the cozy yet spacious feel. The house was even more beautiful than the pictures and absolutely spotless. It was well stocked with all the amenities, internet, television, and a priceless view. We especially enjoyed our stay because of our wonderful hosts, and owners of the property, Claude and Danielle. They helped us find attractions and also provided detailed maps, things to do, and guides. They were very nice and genuine people who ensured our trip was very relaxing. Although they lived in the adjacent house they provided us with privacy and our own space. We would definitely recommend it and hope to come back again and again.

Brithday celebration

  • 4 of 5

My Cousin, her Mom and I were looking for an accessible house to celebrate her 79 birthday. We were so glad we found the Fish Point house owned by Danielle & Claude. The beautiful private cove accessed via a walk through the birch trees was great. We wanted something in between New Brunswick Canada & Bar Harbor and the house was perfect for our trip being about an hours drive to both. The restaurant recommendations by Danielle & Claude were great local places for Seafood, if you go to Pickled Wrinkle have the fish chowder, and you can get a small seafood dinner at Uncle Skinny's that is enough food for 2 had the best fried oysters I've ever had. We slept very well in the comfy beds and the one that raised was perfect for my Aunt! The towels were the big fluffy ones, not what you usually find in a rental. Danielle & Claude was so sweet to us and treated us like family ensuring we all had everything we needed during our stay. If I were looking for a place in Maine that would soothe my soul this house would be it!! Thank you so much Danielle & Claude for all the kindness you showed to us during our stay & sharing Pongo! You will not be forgotten!

The town of Milbridge is the entryway to the Bold Coast Regional Byway, whose scenic beauties, stretching all the way north/eastward to Campobello Island and the Canadian border, are unrivaled on the East Coast.

Milbridge's Main Street area has a supermarket, banks, pharmacy, Post Office, local shops, Historical Society, art gallery, 4 restaurants (including a superb Mexican eatery and a great seafood shanty on the edge of town), massage and chiropractic services, and much more. Saturday is outdoor Farmer's Market day. Boat tour companies offer either whale watching or local island tours where you can see the puffins up close in season.

About 4 miles from Milbridge center is McClellan Park, bequeathed to the Town by the Civil War General's estate, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the bay, rock formations and surrounding islands. (Though you can stay right on our own peninsula at Fish Point and enjoy similar views, plus access the beach directly!)

Cherryfield, a few miles inland of us along the Narraguagus River, has beautiful Victorian houses, events at historic Cherryfield Academy, the outdoor bandshell and the VFW; and shops including a General Store, antique stores, and River Lily, a great place to buy unique, beautiful gifts.

In nearby Steuben, you can wander the back roads, shop at Darthia organic farm, tour Bartlett's Winery, and hike and bird-watch at Petit Manaan Wildlife Refuge.

We're about 35 minutes past Ellsworth, the turnoff to Acadia National Park, and 20 minutes past the less-touristy section of the park known as Schoodic Point--where Mainers go for the same scenery and no crowds. The whole Schoodic area has a winding road off Rt 1, along which are many craft studios, antique shops, and delightful eateries like the Pickled Wrinkle--which in our opinion has the best fish chowder ever! plus an excellent Jazz night at least once a week. Schoodic Arts for All offers lots of cultural events, from bluegrass to classical music, and art shows and workshops, plus activities for kids, at Hammond Hall and its other facilities.

North and eastward beyond us along the coast road are Roque Bluffs, with a golf course and lovely public sand beach; and Jasper Beach, with sea-polished jasper stones, one of only 2 such beaches in the world. The other is in Japan! Detour off the main road to towns like Columbia Falls, Addison, and charming Jonesport, too.

As you head through Machias, a small city with its own goodly supply of shops and facilities, you'll find the local Farmers' Market on Thursdays, indoors below the Hardware Store. The hardware store itself is anything but just tools--you'll find natural remedies, interesting food items and more. Gluten-free pizza lovers will enjoy Pat's Pizza on the outskirts of Machias--there's also a Pat's parlor in Ellsworth.

The little town of Lubeck is an interesting fishing village. One of our favorite shops there is Dianne's Glass. The owner makes all the items in the store, from beautiful dichroic glass jewelry to other types of elegant gift items. From Lubeck (bring your passports!) you can cross the bridge into Canada's Campbello Island, home of Roosevelts, among others. Bring your hiking shoes too, and you can trek over to the lighthouse, a great place to bird-watch and pick up a little more local history.

After your visit to Campobello, if you continue along the coast road to Eastport you'll pass Monica's Chocolates. Do not pass! Go in and sample her wonderful candy, and her to-die-for hot chocolate, plus Peruvian clothing and other items. The tour of the Ray's Mustard plant nearby --the only place left in the US where mustard's made the old-fashioned millstone-ground way--is fun for adults and a good activity for curious kids. You won't believe the number of flavors they make, sold in the factory store.

Eastport itself, the closest coastal town in the US to mainland Canada, is full of lovely shops, good eateries, galleries, an art museum, and a very active Arts Center, where you might find anything from a new painting exhibition to a theater production or chamber music concert. If you want to avoid the longer boat trip from Milbridge to get to where the whales are, consider starting your whale watching ride from Eastport.

These are just some of the things we enjoy most about the Downeast and Schoodic area. We know you'll make your own discoveries and tell us all about them!

We offer 2 damage deposit options: the $99 insurance offered thru HA/VRBO, or a $300 refundable deposit to us.
