A great getaway for reading books
Last year we rented this place for 2 weeks and again this year for a month. The house is roomy and comfortable. Although there is no mechanical air conditioning, none is needed in Roque Bluffs. The house sits directly on the ocean and the breeze across the cool waters of the Atlantic are enough to keep it all comfortable. Not far from the house is FDR's summer getaway at Campobello Island. Downeast Maine benefits from Nature's AC, and is the part of Maine where the wealthy retreated during the summer months, to escape summer temperatures in the big cities. When the urge to explore hits you, there's lots of sightseeing to do, hikes to take, salt & fresh-water swimming and sampling of freshly caught sea food. It's all nearby — this is the REAL, unspoiled Maine! This is a great getaway and wonderful spot for reading books you have been saving for such an occasion.
