À propos de ce logement
The house is a big, old, Maine seaside home, comfortable and clean, but not precious or elegant. From the eastern windows, one has a view of Passamaquoddy Bay and Campobello Island. A small deck provides a space to enjoy the breezes off the ocean. Air conditioning is provided by Mother Nature.
We are in a close, friendly neighborhood, with spaces for quiet reflection, yet we are just three blocks from the downtown with public pier, restaurants, and working waterfront.
Be sure to pack a sweater and long pants. Even in July and August, evenings are pleasantly cool. The main living room has a gas fireplace for rainy days and cool evenings. With 5 bedrooms, the house can accommodate an extended family.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests will have access to the entire house. The shared outside space includes a bricked patio surrounded by grape vines and beach roses to provide a bit of shelter from the sea breezes, while allowing a view of Passamaquoddy Bay and Campobello Island across the bay. The patio has a gas grill for guests' use, as well as a chimney to warm the evenings.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We live next door, and will be available to give guests conversation and suggestions, but will give them as much space and privacy as they want.
Eastport is not for everyone. We are not Bar Harbor, nor do we wish to be. Our home is clean, comfortable, roomy, but not elegant or quaint. People can relax and step back to a simpler time. There are a few good shops, a lively arts community, an award-winning lobster shack, and whale watching boats a few blocks from the house. But the greatest joys in Eastport are simply walking around the town, watching the working waterfront, talking to friendly locals, or perhaps fishing off the town pier. Shackford Head State Park provides miles of hiking trails, from easy to challenging-all with amazing ocean views.
This is a pet-friendly neighborhood, but the hosts would like to discuss pets with the guests before booking. Pets must be fully vaccinated and treated for fleas.
Guests will have one dedicated parking space next to the back door. Please be considerate of neighbors who share the parking space.
