Down East Ocean Front Cottage - Spectacular View

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-6)

This comfortable ocean front cottage with a spectacular granite shore on the Narragragus Bay faces Trafton Island, a beautiful night haven for sailboats. Waves pound the black ledges and green islands spotting the horizon, which reflects brilliant orange and red at sunset. Visitors can explore three miles of granite shore which ranges from five to seventy feet above the sea.

Explore and pick up shells, snails, a starfish, or a mussel along the shore. Enjoy a full day of hiking on one of the many trails or swimming, canoeing or kayaking at one of the nearby lakes. Take a day off and relax on the screened in ocean front porch and watch lobster boats harvest their catch as well as boats dragging for scallops. Wake up to a spectacular sunrise or have cocktails and watch the water change color at sunset.

The homey cottage has been recently renovated with rustic pine walls, wood floors, a new bathroom with a walk-in shower, a modern kitchen, a dining room, a large family room with a wood-burning fireplace, and a screened in porch.

The cottage has one queen-size, one double, one twin bed and a pullout double size couch. The porch has an excellent view of the water, usually accompanied by a cool ocean breeze.

The beauty of the Maine shore does not stop when the sun goes down. After dinner, relax on the porch or in lounge chairs on the lawn and enjoy the moon’s reflection off the water. On a clear night, the sky is out of this world.

Our Maine vacation was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome vacation at Jack's House. The view, the otters, lobster boats, beautiful sunrises, and the cottage was perfect. Thank you so much.

Also, the screened in porch was a favorite.

We all 3 loved Maine.

Fantastic stay, away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and Ellsworth

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage in late July as part of an East coast tour. It was a relaxing place of serenity when we were able to spread out through the cabin, relax on the screened in porch and avoid the mosquitos, and in the morning, see if I could catch the sunrise while watching the latest lobster boats come out to pull in their day's catch.

The cottage is fully supplied with linens, toiletries, dish washing, cooking, and eating utensils, along with many spaces to just relax or spend time as a family.

If ever we come back to downeast Maine, and we plan to, we will look here first for our return trip. Thanks again!

A quaint cottage with a beautiful view on the water with lots of fun rocks to explore along

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant experience! Perfect if you are looking for a small cottage away from the hustle and bustle, near lobster fisherman, along the beautiful water. Close enough to a small town for any necessities, or fresh lobster to eat. Only a little over an hour from Bar Harbor and Acadia.

Delightful cottage with fabulous ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 45th anniversary here! It was very quiet and peaceful location even though it is close to the big house. The original cottage has been totally renovated very bright and cheery with new paneling and appliances(beautiful red) and was immaculate! The bed was comfortable.

The porch is wonderful to sit and relax..

The view was amazing...we enjoyed watching the lobster boats checking their traps. The night sky was incredible to view over the ocean was the moon rising reflecting on the water. We used the outdoor grill and outdoor picnic table.

We visited Lubec and the West Quoddy

Lighthouse and explored several Peninsulas with small fishing villages. Jasper Beach was a great place to find some special rocks! We visited Acadia National Park on the Schoodic Peninsula and enjoyed it much more than the park on Mt Desert island as there were much fewer people but still a beautiful loop drive.

McClellan Park was so close and a wonderful place to view the shoreline.

A wonderful memorable experience!
