We've been vacationing in this area for 33 years and at this cottage for four. This is a real "down east" lived-in home instead of the usual glamorous lakeside cottage. Jones Pond is full of fresh water bass and trout; and the sea with its gorgeous sunsets is just a four minute walk away. Our hosetess, Anne, has thoughtfully provided all the furnishings, equipment and extras that one needs, including row boat which is ready for your outboard motor, new canoe and several kayaks. The new improvements we enjoyed this year included a flt screen TV with HDMI connectors, a new queen bed and a front deck with weather proof rocking chairs. We thought the seafood restaurants in Winter Harbor, Corea, Sullivan and Hancock were better than ever this year. Well, we've already made our booking for next year. Can't wait!
While Bar Harbor is great - and busy - Tugwassa is quiet, serene, relaxing and close to everything, including awesome Acadia National Park. The canoe and kayaks were such a treat and while they may call it a "pond" you can spend the whole day canoeing or kayaking on this beautiful "lake". We bought fresh caught lobsta direct from the Corea wharf and had 3 awesome dinners in our home away from home - WAY better than a restaurant. Thank you Anne for sharing your peaceful and unique cottage and letting us see the real Maine right out our front window. The Fall colors were simply spectacular!
