    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.

    Peaceful Retreat perfect for getting off the grid!!!

    My husband and I traveled here to spend our honeymoon 3 months after the wedding - our goal - to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax in a nature setting. This vacation rental was everything that we were looking for and more. We really enjoyed the house and location. We were able to drive throughout the area sightseeing yet come back to a quiet, pretty, and inviting home. Beats a hotel by a million. Every convenience needed is in the house and you only need to bring clothes and groceries once your arrive. We cooked meals every day and had fun doing it. You can walk down to the rocky beach, play in the water or collect sea shells, sit on the deck and watch the lobster boats, or relax in front of the fire on a cold night. Perfect place to read a good book and dabble in a few hobbies. I recommend it for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle. You can drive an hour to get that if you need it.

    Peaceful, wonderful ocean views, terrific stars in the nighttime canopy and very restful.

    Peaceful, wonderful ocean views, terrific stars in the nighttime canopy and very restful: all apt descriptors of this treasured location. For anyone who is mobility impaired, the house is ideal—easily accessed via 2 steps from outside, with everything close-at-hand and easily navigated. There is no ramp, but once inside, there is plenty of space for wheelchair navigation. The house is a spacious open concept plan with numerous doors and windows that allow access to the outdoors from every point. Porches all around allow for great views, catching some rays and an evening cocktail. The Master bedroom & bath, main bath and guest bedroom on the first floor provide great space for 2 couples or a family of 4. There is a spacious open loft on the second floor, accessed by a central staircase that can be used as overflow sleeping space on cots or air mattresses for the young-at-heart. As an open loft, it is subject to any noise or activities that are happening on the 1st floor living area. For lobster lovers, a local lobsterman and his wife sell their fresh, live catch directly to the public—Mother Shuckers—and have the tastiest catch, ever—just 3 miles down the road! Previously mentioned, Roque Bluffs State Park offers both salt and fresh water swimming, enjoyed by our granddaughter; and Campobello Island Canada, are not to be missed (a driver’s license—not a Passport—is only necessary to go there and return). This is the part of Maine that most people never see: 20’ tides, reversing falls, harbors filled with working lobster boats sitting on a mud bottom at low tide, Eagles and naturally wild landscapes like the Great Wass Island Preserve. This is also where those succulent, wild Maine Blueberries grow. If you’re lucky, you can get some when you visit!
