Narrows Watch is a spectacularly simple cottage — straight out of an Andrew Wyeth painting.  The views and decor capture the very essence of a Maine summer house by the shore.

The cottage has been featured in several national magazines, as well as a book titled simply “Summer House”.  What could be more perfect than that?

It is nestled on a hillside in the tiny village of Machiasport, just a hop, skip and a jump from historic Liberty Hall and the historical society.  It overlooks the estuary where the Machias River meets the Atlantic Ocean and is just a short drive to Jasper Beach, Grey’s Beach or the town of Machias.

Because you should know before you go…

***The home itself is a true retreat.  The small gourmet kitchen features a commercial Viking stove, a double fridge and an amazing soapstone sink (but no dishwasher).

***There are three bedrooms upstairs — a queen, double and twin – sleeping 5 people comfortable.

***The three bedrooms are upstairs and the one bathroom is downstairs

***There is currently no internet at the cottage — the owners have been using their cell phones as mobile hot-spots and enjoy having the home unplugged.

***There is one small television in one bedroom that plays dvd’s only.

***There is no washer or dryer at the house — there is a laundromat about 4 miles away.

***The staircase to the bedrooms is fairly steep and narrow — as staircases often are in beautiful old homes.

***The bathroom has a wonderful clawfoot tub with a shower.

***The cottage is water view with access to launch your kayak just down the road at the public boat landing.
