We spent a wonderful eleven days over Christmas and New Year at this beautiful property! The northeast was engulfed in a deep freeze, but the house itself was wonderfully warm. Our children (10, 8 and 6) loved having the property grounds to themselves for sledding, playing in the snow, checking out the ice in the cove, and finding animal tracks. We loved the house, in particular for it’s beautifully equipped kitchen and outstanding views. Lots of great books, music and games also supplied.
Machias has some great places to visit (Helen’s Restaurant, Whole Life Cafe and Food, and the French Cellar), and the area in general had plenty of good day trips despite the winter weather (the stunning Acadia National Park, the Roque Bluff State Park, the West Quoddy Lighthouse and State Park, and Cobscook Bay).
Owner Maria was very quick and easy to communicate with.
Would love to stay here again if we could – a truly memorable place to celebrate our first ever white Christmas.
