BEACH HOUSE nestled next to the Harbor. Surrounded by salt air and ocean breezes
900 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Maria
6 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms

Overview

Welcome home to the FRISKY FISH COTTAGE!

While most of our guests have been retired artists and musicians and dreamers, it's a great spot for solo vacationers, couples, two couples or friends traveling together or small families.

The space
THE BEACH COTTAGE:

THE GREAT ROOM

--Loveseat and two accent chairs
--Small drop leaf table with 4 chairs

FULL KITCHEN
--Large breakfast bar with four stools

For Kidlets -
We offer outlet covers, high chair and pack and play upon request.
We have board games and outdoor games like bocce and cornhole. We also have fun activities like scavenger hunts and ice cream makers. (However, the property is not childproofed and waterfront, so proper supervision is necessary, of course).

THE YARD
The yard is a waterfront, park-like lawn, meadow and gardens. The large, one acre yard also houses our glamping retreat, Camp From-Away, which sleeps a maximum of 2 people (opening summer 2020). Each cottage has its own yard space separated by a privacy fence. Generally, the only part of the yard that is shared is a six foot access path in between the two cottages to a sandy entry point to the water (the property also abuts a public rocky beach for additional access).
Depending on the time of year that you visit, the gardens may be in full bloom -- I'd love to take credit, but they were planted by the prior owner -- quite frankly, I'm surprised I've been able to, not only keep them alive, but actually thrive. Behind the old boatlaunch is an easy access to launch a kayak (shared access with the property next door).

All of our property is SMOKE FREE.

Guest access
This is a full house rental. Guests have access to the entire cottage (except the basement) and yard.

Other things to note
We have many guests who seek out our cottage, specifically because it's tidal.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO BE ON A TIDAL HARBOR IN DOWNEAST MAINE?

We are very close to the Bay of Fundy, in Canada, which has the highest tidal ranges in the world and is one of the seven wonders of the world. These extreme tidal areas are the reasons many tourists come to these spots- not only for the phenomenon of the extreme tides but also for the amazing bird watching as well as the sea creatures drawn to the area.

Twice a day, the water recedes almost completely from the harbor, and twice a day, water fills the basin. It’s fascinating to see the fishermen access their traps by driving their truck directly on the ocean floor in the middle of the harbor during low tide, just where boats had been a few hours before.

We have a ton of information on things to do in the area -- puffin tours, great pie, things to do with kids, etc. on our property website which can be found via internet search.

NEAREST BEACHES:

***Finn Beach -- adjacent to cottage - a short, rocky beach where fishermen launch their dayboats. Not really appropriate for swimming, it IS appropriate for pouring a glass of wine and watching the sunset.
***Jasper Beach - 1 mile
***Greys Beach - 2 miles
***Roque Bluffs State Park beach - 12 miles
