Machiasport, Maine
'When planning a family vacation, idealistic visions often precede your arrival: stunning silent mornings with a cup of coffee and a picture-perfect view; bald eagles diving for fish in pristine water; easy outings to explore wild woods and rugged coastlines; friendly shop keepers selling unique treasures to take home; lazy afternoons playing in the yard with the family while music streams through the open windows; time to read, to cook, to do a puzzle, to nap; laughing through a game of trivial pursuit after a bonfire of marshmallows and guitar….

At Featherbed Island, all these fantasies and more came true. This was a perfect vacation for our family. Maria’s magical spot of land is extraordinary — it is in a perfect location if you want to venture down the road and find an adventure, yet, the peacefulness an...

About the neighbourhood
Featherbed Island house is located at the end of the road in the charming and historic village of Machiasport, Maine. It is the absolute perfect central location for your downeast Maine vacation - away from the crowds of Bar Harbor, yet close enough for day-tripping. In fact, it's less than a two hour drive from just about all of the sights in down east Maine.
The house itself if very private - at the very end of a narrow lane, surrounded by water and wood, yet a mile from historic Machiasport (you can see the charming profile of the village from the property) and just three miles from 'civilization'. Located at the bend of the Machias River where it greets the bay, the tides will lure you to watch them ebb and flow twice per day.
Getting around
Whale watching... trips to Seal Island to see the Puffins... hiking the Bold Coast trail... biking the Sunrise Trail... Roque Bluffs State Park for swimming at the white sand ocean beach or in the 20 acre lake... the Pirate festival in August and September in Eastport and Lubec... Summerkeys... Band Concerts... Fourth of July Boat Parades.... Spectacular Jasper Beach in Machiasport...Sunset Cruises.... Shopping in Bar Harbor....Eat a lobster... Canoe and Sea Kayak trips...Visit the Fort O'Brien Historic Site....visit the lighthouses... Blueberry Festival...and on and on. Whether you are 8 or 80, there will be things downeast to keep you busy. No wonder Maine is Vacationland.
