Cliff-perched Home with Breathtaking Ocean Views

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Machiasport, Maine
Designed to evoke a ship, this stylish 2BD home overlooks the ocean and is surrounded by 50 acres of woods, wildlife, and area beaches. Complete privacy but only 17 min from town. Hike, kayak, BBQ, explore Downeast harbors, or just relax on the deck.

The Prowhouse was designed by Machiasport poet and sea captain Phil Rose to evoke the prow of a ship. The home's distinctive, angular 'prow' and its floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Howards Cove, a lovely crescent of ocean water and woodlands cupped in the north by unique Jasper Beach. The Prowhouse is perched atop a 130' cliff on the southwestern arm of the cove and is surrounded by pristine forest. In addition to the remarkable view, our guests enjoy complete solitude — there's only one other home remotely visible and it's across the cove about a mile away.

The previous reviews tell all. There is not a moment of disappointment while staying at The Prowhouse. Even the enveloping fogs mesmerize and add to the constant serenity. The sea and sky are in continuous motion and states of change. For the patient, bald eagles,...More

Perfect for a couple who want peace and quiet. My husband and I enjoyed every day of our visit. Our trip consisted of hiking Cutler reserve, Roque Bluff, the Yurts and a day trip to Campobello, but we found ourselves wanting to get back to...More
