It was a wonderful vacation spot. Just what we were hoping for. Beautiful view. All of the necessities, plus extras. Beautifully decorated, clean cottage. We loved watching the lobster boats heading out to lay traps at sunrise. Absolutely nothing was disappointing, except having to leave.

Cottage by the Sea
August 23, 2010
The cottage location was perfect. Everything was immaculate. We felt very much at home and had a good amount of privacy. The only negative was the fact that we could not get the TV or VCR to work. Fortunately, we aren't big TV people. We brought good books with us and spent a lot of time out of doors.
In June my wife, daughter, and I had a marvelous vacation at the Watty's cottage in Jonesport. The house is on a bluff with an exceptional view of many offshore islands, one of which (Bar Island) is accessible at low tide. If seafood is high on your list, this is for you. There are mussels, clams, and periwinkles to gather at low tide and you can buy lobsters and Jonah crabs at the co-op dock in town. Norton's puffin tour is not to be missed, but you need to reserve early. Acadia Natl. Park is close enough for day trips. We saw 4 bald eagles living near the cottage, so you don't need to take a tour to see beautiful wildlife. We must also mention that the folks at Jonesport Realty were friendly and helpful in all our contacts with them. Overall, we had an enjoyable and memorable visit to Jonesport
The cottage was a perfect week away, like the tides across the rocky shore, our worries washed away. The week gave sunrises to ignite the soul. I recommend a walk on the beach early in the day. Roque Bluffs is an outstanding place to check out. If you like cheesecake, go to the White House on Rte 1. I don't want to leave! We've had a great week doing day trips to Lubec/West Quoddy, Campobello, Eastport, and staying here enjoying the sun! The eagles (every morning they'd be in their spots on Bar Island), finches, lobster boats (I'm an early riser), and even the fog ;-) What a welcoming, wonderful place you have! And yes, you've thought of all the amenities including the wonderful Peter Ralston book 'Sightings' - a joy to read while sitting next to the ocean. Your decor is quaint-essential Maine with the loons, moose, lighthouses, nad the details! - what fun to notice another new one each day. Thanks so much for sharing your place and heart for Maine with this 'Mainer'.
What a comfortable and restful place you have, so thoughtfully prepared and fixed for your guests! Enjoyed daily observation of 2 eagles atop trees on Bar Island each morning - in the wild - was a first for me! Like clockwork they arrived and stayed and often quietly disappeared. Both sunrise, sunsets, as well as moon rises were pictures worth 1000 words! Although our day trips were very beautiful, enjoyable - including beautiful shore walks on simple trails by Quoddy Lighthouse and Campobello - days at this cottage brought nourishing rest as we drank in the beauty of the sea, listened to the sounds of the seaside, and left all the cares of our homes behind. Discovering the delicious fare of chowders, stews, seafood, homecooked food and fresh raspberry pie w/whipped cream or chocolate peanut butter moose pie (at Joyce's in Machias) made cooking obsolete - though all we needed was here when needed. We found Jonesport and our stay here to be one we'll recall fondly.

Many thanks for the opportunity to experience Maine! Your quaint cottage provided us a wonderful and welcome home base and we appreciated all the amenities on hand at arrival. The awesome ocean view was especially beautiful during a day of rain - but we certainly appreciated the sunny weather the other days. Waking at 5:30 for sunrises was worth getting up early!
Morning walks on the nearby sandy beach and BarIsland started several days. Our main activities included: a visit to Campobello Island and FDR's home, a couple days at Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park (which included a stop at Atlantic Brewery). Also enjoyed golfing at Barren View Golf Course, Rte. 1.
Favorite eating spots: Jordan Pond at Acadia (lobster stew and popovers - even returned to bake our own popovers!), The Cove (on Rte. 1 at Sorrento turn off). We purchased and prepared fresh clams in Jonesport (at the end of Bluenote ST). Loved the fresh wild blueberries and the two pies we baked with them . I purchased one batch at Blueberry Hut - on corner of Rte 1 and 187 -good muffins there, too).
Our photos will provide us with great memories of the wonderful Maine coast and your picturesque cottage! Thanks so much!
Your cottage by the sea is a wonderful place. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats out front, the bird activity, a seal, some fog, sunrises, sunsets, and simply the action of the water.
Our day trips included Acadia National Park - wow!, Campobello Island, St. Andrews, NB...and just poking around in the area fishing villages. Several trips were made to the White House for pie, crab rolls or chowder. Mmmm!
Thanks for providing a very guest-friendly cottage
We had a wonderful time at your cottage in Maine! We took your advice and ate at Tall Barney's. Saw the "liar's table" and started talking with some of the lobstermen there. One of them invited us to go along on a fishing expedition the next day. What an experience!! When we got back he wanted to give us all the lobsters, but we told him we just enjoyed the trip so much, and he could keep the lobsters. He then invited us to his house and cooked the lobsters for us!
We visited many places while here, and rented some bikes which we rode along the coast.
Your cottage provided a wonderful, relaxing place to return to each day. The views are beautiful, and we had such nice sunny weather the entire week.
Thank you so much!
This was a great week! Sun everyday. A little different than last year - fog most every day. We had a super time visiting the beach with family. The men got to golf every day, and the gals got to sit on the beach and relax. Water is a little cold, but I did get in twice.
Bird watching from your deck is the best - morning coffee at sunrise on the deck is a little piece of heaven. One only has to look around to see how awesome God is - what a creation he put together. I personally think this place in Maine is the best.
I've been coming here for years. My father's family was from Jonesport. We have had many many memories. Some sad, most happy. This cottage is perfect. Cindy and Mike, you have created a perfect vacation spot, and I thank you for hsaring it with us. Thanks!
This has been an absolutely wonderful and amazing trip. Words cannot describe the beauty of Maine. The pictures on your website do your cottae and Jonesport's scenery no justice. We could not have picked a better place to stay in Maine.
During our visit we believe to have seen everything there is in Downeast Maine! We visited Lubec and Campobello the first day. It was gorgeous! We went to Acadia and Bar Harbor twice. Brooke loved the shopping in Bar Harbor! We toured the entire Acadia National Park and went whale watching in "Ba Haba". We went to Calais one day and were a little disappointed in that; however, it was still a nice trip. We played golf, went fishing, ate in, and ate out. We had a very memorable trip.
I proposed to Brooke on Tuesday as planned and she accepted. The stars and rising moon helped to make this a very romantic place.
The fog was heavy much of the week, but only one day did it put a damper on the entire day. We have left Maine without the opportunity of seeing much wildlife. When we hiked Great Wass it was too foggy to see the seals, but we did hear them. When we went whale watching it was foggy and we missed out on those as well. No moose were to be found either. Oh well!
Thank you both so much for the opportunity to stay here. If youever decide to sell the place, let me know. I will buy it!!! I hope your trip up here is an wonderful as ours. Thanks again!
Thank you for such a delightful cottage and terrific view. we were so pleased to have every thinkable necessity available and access to many sights in the area.
My husband and I love to watch and photograph birds, so we enjoyed Great Wass and Petite Manan. Chris was able to get beautiful photos of several varieties of warblers and I enjoyed hiking the trails in both parks.
We took the boat ride to Machias Seal Island with the Norton's. We had a beautiful day and saw many nesting puffins, razorbills, murries, and artic terns. We even spotted a very rare white puffin.
We did an $8, nine holes of golf (very reasonable) and then, the same day, headed to Campobello Island to see Roosevelt's home and hike/bird watch. Well worth it. After a quick visit to Quoddy Light we feasted on steamed lobster. Delicious! We found a nice place near Quoddy Light but I can't remember the name!
Yesterday we went to Bog Brook Flowage to canoe (north of Cherryfield). Saw many nesting osprey and a mother and baby moose - quite a treat!
Tomorrow we leave, hope to squeeze in one more canoe trip. It was a great week with good weather. We will be back to Maine. Thanks!
Unlike most guests of the cottage, we come from a town about this size. It is nice to "change your four walls" as my uncle likes to say entirely too much. It's good to know that small towns carry similarities even when the environment is completely different.
To those who come after us: Go to Quoddy Head! It is absolutely beautiful with peaceful trails, giant cliffs, and who doesn't love a peat bog?
Thanks to the Watty's for all the thought they obviously put into making this cottage have something for everybody.
