The Frisky Fish Cottage and Boathouse
The Frisky Fish Cottage is a beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed, fully outfitted house right at the tip of a piece of land jutting into Bucks Harbor in Machiasport, Maine … way up there in Downeast, surrounded by water on 3 sides. We loved how fully relaxed we became within moments of landing there. We enjoyed campfires outside at night and loved eating at the table right on the harbor. It was lovely watching the lobster fishermen do their thing every day … coming and going on their own schedule. We bought lobsters from the Lobster Trap just around the corner and had everything we needed to cook, crack and eat them at the cottage. The beds were super comfortable. The kitchen was very well-equipped. The shower was great. Laundry right there. Wonderful complimentary coffee. What a dream vacation. We ate at Helen’s a couple of times. Great food and pies. We also loved the Schnitzel Wagon … not your typical Maine fare, but delicious authentic German food. Both in Machias. Everywhere we drove, we saw stunning views of the water. If you are looking to kick back, relax, and take in the beauty, this is the place for you.
