    Great location in Eastport

    The cottage was very clean and cozy and had everything you would possibly need. Whether inside or out the views are beautiful and peaceful. Most important was that we were able to walk "downtown". Thank you Colleen, we hope to see you next Summer!

    The Enchanted Cottage on Shackford Cove in Eastport, ME

    Ideally located on Shackford Cove in Eastport, ME, this cottage has everything you need for a magical vacation on the water. Totally private, yet we could walk into town for shopping and dinner or spend hours on the wonderful porch and watch for whales or fishing boats go by. Our hosts, Jim and Colleen are the perfect hosts and have thought of everything you could ever need. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Eastport is a short drive to some of Maine’s best hiking trails and beaches. We will have memories to cherish until our next visit.

    Delightful getaway we highly recommend

    This was such a nice getaway. Our only regret is not booking earlier so we could stay even longer. It felt very private and cozy. Our favorite was sitting on the deck during late afternoons just watching the tide in the cove. The cottage is thoughtfully stocked with every tool or equipment you might need. Everything is in tip top shape and nothing feels old or second hand. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious, the shower had great water pressure, with quick and plentiful hot water. Honestly it felt like someone had transferred everything we had in our own home to a seaside cove and we lacked for nothing. The cottage is snug and toasty on those colder Maine summer days, but there’s also a wonderful breeze on those rare hot days. We often walked into town which is maybe 5 minutes away to pop into shops or eat. There’s a fun ferry to Lubec (and I’d stay in Eastport over Lubec, way more to do in Eastport!) Our dogs were happy and welcomed by Colleen who is really a wonderful and attentive host and always quick to respond, but never encroached on our privacy during our stay. We will be back if we can snag a booking!
