Holiday Rental House
Situated in the heart of a small, lobster-fishing village, Bridge View is a stylish, 3 bedroom cottage with panoramic views of Western Bay, Jonesport and Beals Island Bridge. Built in the 1890s, Bridge View was recently renovated and decorated to reflect the nostalgia and aesthetic of midcentury Maine. While Bridge View is the perfect place to just unwind and watch the lobster boats go by, it's also ideal for experiencing Downeast culture up close. Each morning, go for a short stroll around the fishing village; breath in the salty sea air; photograph the sea captains hauling in their catch or buy fresh lobster straight from the pier. If you’re looking for more energetic pursuits, kayak Western Bay's countless coves or hike Great Wass Island, a renowned nature reserve connected to Beals ...Situated in the heart of a small, lobster-fishing village, Bridge View is a stylish, 3 bedroom cottage with panoramic views of Western Bay, Jonesport and Beals Island Bridge.

If you’re looking for more energetic pursuits, kayak Western Bay's countless coves or hike Great Wass Island, a renowned nature reserve connected to Beals by bridge. You can also take the lobster and shellfish hatcheries tour at the nearby Downeast Institute or sample New England’s #1 rated lobster roll at Bayview take-out. ('Best Lobster Roll in Maine/Massachusetts' - USA today). Bridge View and Beals are truly unique. The town of Beals is blissfully free of the tourist hoards that crowd most Maine towns in the summer and is the perfect base for visiting other popular Downeast destinations. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are just a little over an hour away. The opposite direction up Route 1 takes you to the historic coastal towns of Eastport, Lubec, and Campobello State Park (FDR’s beautiful summer home.) The towns of Machias (host to famous Helen’s restaurant) and Cutler (home of Captain Andy Peterson’s popular Puffin Tour) are both just 30+ minutes away. Wherever you go, you’ll never be far from Maine’s dramatic, rocky coast or boulder-strewn blueberry barrens.More

Thanks Kayla - You guys were a blast to host. Re Beals and Bridge View: The credit is all yours for passing up the prototypical, tourist-packed towns to the south to explore this unique part of Maine. We're glad you enjoyed your stay! Rich+Julie
