The Frisky Fish Cottage

The Frisky Fish Cottage in Machiasport is one of the most comfortable, adorable, supremely located, full of everything you need, and a whole lot of what you didn’t know you needed, but upon discovery, you LOVED (like a record player, complete with incredible records, and that scratchy-take-you-back sound when you place the needle on the record…)! We LOVED this cottage. “We” included my husband and I (sleeping upstairs on the most comfortable king size mattress, gazing out on the harbor upon waking), and our good friend Jan (who slept downstairs in her own private, equally as comfortable, queen size mattress room). Jan and I spent hours sitting in the two incredibly cool and comfortable chairs by the windows looking upon the harbor (ALL the windows look upon the harbor!), drinking champagne and talking all evening, then drinking coffee and talking all morning. As it was November, it was a bit chilly to enjoy the outside amenities (but we saw they were plentiful, and can’t wait to come back!), but the cozy interior with all the windows allowed us to be warm and still feel like we were outside. The kitchen is beautifully stocked with everything, including champagne flutes, beer glasses, and yummy coffee mugs (I rate kitchens by the cups that get filled with all my favorite things!)! The art and attention to detail throughout the cottage was amazing. The childrens books, the games, the quotes upon the walls and on the beds upon arrival….just all so warm and welcoming, we could have stayed forever! And we WILL be back! Thank you! xo Em (and Jonathan and Jan)
