Big Changes For Us…

moving to maine

We’ve completed our 16th season of vacation rentals and have nothing but gratitude for all of our guests — both the new ones who made their first trip to DownEast Maine and the ones who come back to stay in our rental cottages year after year.

We’re making some major changes this fall!

You may remember that we had announced that we were putting Featherbed Island House on the market for sale this past August.

Well.  Let me tell you what happened next.

Because we had received a ton of interest in the first week that it was on the market, we knew that the house was going to sell sooner, rather than later. So in mid September, I traveled up to Machiasport to pack up the items in the cottage that I wanted to keep.

I arrived on a beautiful afternoon – one of those autumn days when the sunlight is just perfect – you know those days — the colors are their most vibrant — the gold and green of the earth and the clear, clear blue of the sky.  The tide was high, with water lapping on the shore.  Immediately, I got out of my car and texted my husband… “We’re crazy”.

By the next morning, we were seriously contemplating whether or not we could actually figure out a way to move DownEast full time and impulsively decided to pack up our Cape Cod house and head north! It will be an adjustment, (with lots of penny-pinching as we figure out…life… DownEast) but we can’t wait!  Our target move date is sometime around the first of the year.

So what will that mean for Wicked Awesome Maine vacation rentals?  We still have the Frisky Fish Cottage (which has become our most popular rental — most of our summer reservations this year were from repeat guests) and we have our small, semi-off-the-grid cottage in Nova Scotia.  I probably will take a year off from managing rentals for others, until we get settled and get our bearings, but I’ll continue to blog and send occasional newsletters and I love chatting with everyone on my Facebook and Instagram pages.  In fact, I assuming that living on Machias Bay will be quite an inspiration and I’ll be posting even more.

I’m excited by the thought of living locally– possibilities abound for new services — like being able to meet our guests upon arrival, concierge services, grocery shopping, tour guide, etc.  The possibilities are endless — stay tuned as we refine them, we’ll update via newsletter and social media.

Mill Memorial Park – East Machias

Maine Vacation Rental

A great spot for a picnic!
East Machias’ town center rises on hills flanking both sides of a narrow, boulder-strewn stretch of the East Machias River. A bridge leads from the rail-trail to narrow Mill Park along the opposite bank. A sign lists successive mills that stood here, and old mill parts are displayed, sculpture-like. The village’s two bridges create a nice walking loop. As in neighboring Machias and Machiasport, wonderful federal and Victorian-era architecture is all about. Not to be missed: Washington Academy’s 1823 main building and the soaring 1836 First Congregational Church.
