    Additional Location Information
    The Outdoors and Puffin Boat Tours: Heron View Cottage is just a short drive from Jasper Beach, with its expansive, half-mile-long cobble beach and surf. There are several hiking trails located in Cutler that are only a 20 minute drive from the house. The Bold Coast, Boot Cove and Hamilton Cove are spectacular trails along the edge of rugged ocean cliffs and have many scenic vistas. They are “must” hikes when visiting the Downeast coast area.

    Another “must do” while in the area is the Atlantic Puffin boat tours offered by Captain Andy Patterson of the Bold Coast Charter Company out of Cutler harbor. These beautiful and rare parrot-like seabirds only frequent a few of the rugged offshore islands along the Maine coast. Your destination of Machias Seal Island, only 9 miles off Cutler, is the largest puffin colony on the Maine coast, with thousands more birds than any other site.

    Lobsters and Whales: The cottage is only a short drive to the lobster wharf in Bucks Harbor where vacatione...

If you can imagine spending two weeks in and antique show room then you have the Heron Cottage.
We just finished ours and it was great. There is a bit of traffic noise as folks go to and fro to work. However what your you expect being in that 30 feet between the roadway and the river/tidal bay?
It was difficult looking after the tides to make sure they rose and fell when required and that the water foul got their fill. The eagles, osprey and heron all took their turn along with the myriad gulls, crows and ravens.
