Why Heather McCollum chose Jonesport
The McCollum Cottages date back to the early 1900's when their used to be around 8 of them. They are situated on a bluff above Moosabec Reach on McCollum Ln, overlooking McCollum Beach. Given this history - the McCollum's needed to get them back in the family and make them available for others to enjoy again!!

A way to step back in time
Loved the quiet simple way of life hubby would have liked a tv but we lived without it. Restaurants in area not the greatest but other than that it was great
Get away from it all!
My husband and I spent three weeks at this charming little cottage. It had just what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hosts Rick and Donna were so nice and gracious! We thoroughly enjoyed this working town, the views, the fog, the starry nights, the quiet, the lobsters, etc. etc. When it was foggy at home, we just had to drive 30 - 40 minutes inland to enjoy sandy bottom lakes with crystal clear waters. The daily tides were impressive. The lobster fresh as can be. The blueberries and raspberries wild and sweet. We can't wait to return.
Thank you so much for coming to stay in our sweet cottage! I'm thrilled that you had a great time. Thank you for the 5 star review too. You are definitely welcome back every summer : ) Heather
Peaceful Location for a Maine coast Getaway
Lovely little cottage, nothing fancy but really well-maintained and very, very comfortable. Simple and utilitarian, very nice for a couple.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Charming and Peaceful!
What a charming cottage! We had everything we needed, and Heather was accommodating and very helpful. The bay view/ocean is spectacular. We took daily walks on the beach and totally relaxed. We wanted a get-away that was peaceful, away from the city, and "just be" with nature. At the last moment, our dog sitter canceled, and Heather was kind enough to allow us to bring, "Rosie" our cocker spaniel. She too had a great time! :-). Heather's father, Richard and his partner, Donna, were friendly, helpful and generous to a fault of their time and friendship. Jonesport and Beals Island is a charming setting and people were friendly and non-intrusive. We will stay at Heather's cottage on a yearly basis. I highly recommend the Primrose cottage. Heather, thank you again!
