We rented this cottage along with the cottage next door with our sister and brother-in-law. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet with wonderful views of the ocean and islands. We sat on the deck wrapped in blankets one cool evening and watched the moon rise over the bay. Sunrises are beautiful with lobster boats going out to collect their catches. Local people are welcoming and friendly. Not many places to eat in Jonesport in October but we did have excellent pizza from Jonesport Pizza one night. We had breakfast and dinner at Helen's in Machias. This restaurant has excellent food and seems to be recommended by all the locals. We brought more than enough food to eat at the cottage and the cooking facilities worked well and were suitably equipped. We hiked one of the trails at Great Wass Island. It was a workout but ended up at the ocean with views of Moose Peak Lighthouse on Mistake Island. Spent several hours hiking at Cutler Preserve near Cutler. An hour long hike was rewarded with great views of the Atlantic from 100 foot cliffs. The blueberry barrens in mid-October are amazing - they look like Monet paintings and stretch for ever. Definitely worth planning a trip at least once to see these amazing fields of color. We enjoyed our stay at Doug's cottages and would recommend them to any one looking for a break from the rush of every day life.
