Set privately among the spruce and fir on the west shore of Narraguagus Bay, the cottage offers beautiful panoramic views of islands, marine wildlife and natural beauty. Kayaking, hiking, biking, bird watching, or exploring Acadia National Park and Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge are some of the activities available. Adjoining dock for access to the water. Once here, it is hard to leave. Peace beyond belief

“Right on the rocks”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2014

The ocean is feet from the deck at high tide. Wonderful. Comfortable living. Bathrooms and kitchen are small and by no means fancy but well-equipped. The "master" bedroom has two twin beds, and there are two small rooms each with two bunk beds, and two twin beds in the living room. If you know the coast of Maine, this is a classic "summer camp"--a house suited only for the warm seasons, but with a nice fireplace for cool evenings. If you used all the beds it would be crowded if it was raining, but a family with kids would be fine. You have to like bunk beds. There were two of us and we were very comfortable. There were no issues that marred the experience. No WIFi but could get a slow data connection from Verizon cellular. Milbridge has a grocery store, restaurant, ice cream stand, library (with Wifi). Obviously, you don't go to this part of Maine for the night life. You go for the seal swimming off the dock. Expect to do a bit of driving to get anywhere, or just stay put.

“River/Bay view cottage with all that you need”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2014

We loved this small but totally fitted out cottage overlooking the Harrington River and the Ripley Neck area of Englishman's Bay. The proprietor accommodated our flexible schedule, allowing me the chance to stay on an extra day, or leave. We cooked, slept, hung out, and worked on our film shoot in the living areas. Nice deck also an place to walk a dog or take a jog. Recommend for small family or work group. No internet, but the library in town is open 2 to 6 PM for those needs.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review. The view is actually of Narraguagus Bay but your fairly close. Hope you'll visit us again.

“Peaceful Retreat”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2014

Rented this little cabin for our " Sister"s Weekend" getaway. The cabin is nestled in the woods on a rock peninsula overlooking the bay. What a treat to wake up to the smells and sounds of the ocean and have our morning coffee experiencing a spectacular view. We tripped to Acadia one day, collected some mussels off the rocks for a dinner treat and enjoyed beautiful weather. The cabin is comfortable though rustic, has plenty of pots and pans, even some spices available. The table by the picture window is a good size and accommodated us well, though it was a bit wobbly and we had to be careful while eating our meals. For days after arriving home I missed the sunrise, and morning peace. I know I was not alone., thoroughly enjoyed our getaway!

Owner's reply: The table is an antique "trestle" type, and the wooden pins at each end need to be tapped back in to place occasionally to hold the table firmly in place. An item we will remind future tenants about. One of those things our family has been living with for 50+ years that we need to inform our visitors of. Thanks for the comment. Reg Elwell

We've rented this cottage for the past 6 years, and look forward to returning as soon as we pull out of the property on our return home. Visiting here is truly a vacation. We completely "unplug" from our daily lives when we are here. We enjoy every waking moment, from the moment the sun peaks out from behind the islands across the bay to the evenings when the loons call out to each other during the beautiful sunsets. Unlike some busier waterfront areas in New England, the bay here is mostly traveled by lobster boats, the quintessential New England working waterfront. If you have a dog, this is an absolute dog's paradise! We enjoy kayaking, seal watching, bald eagle watching, hiking on Pigeon Hill (awesome 270 degree view of Cadillac Mountain, Petit Manan, Narraguagus Bay, and much more), biking on Schoodic Point, and just plain RELAXING. Great fireplace to warm up to in the evenings, and nice screened-in porch for burying our noses into good books. We highly recommend this property. The owners are great to deal with and make our stay so worth the trip from southern New England. AAAA+++++!!!

As a Floridian I am almost inured with beautiful coast-line property. This, though, changed my mind. From the seals basking on the rocks nearby, to the porpoise swimming past, this is an amazingly wonderful site that only feels isolated. I rented it for the first time a few years ago, and have returned regularly since! Amazingly, it is only a few minutes from the local downtown with a small movie-theatre, grocery store, and many other amenities. There are few better things than waking up to watch a lobster boat glide across the glass-smooth water early in the morning. Sally (the other reviewer) is right, this is a dog's paradise! Also, though, it is wonderful for children! There are many tide-pools to explore, tidal flats to enjoy, and a nearby state park that is a wonderful walk down the wooded lanes. All-in-all, a definite A+ for fun and peace!
