The Frisky Fish Cottage

We loved the time we spent at the cottage. If you’re looking for somewhere just off the beaten path, this is your place. It was fascinating watching the tide come in and out and watching the lobstermen at work. There’s lots of beautiful scenery and short day trips to keep you occupied. All of the people we met were so friendly. Don’t miss a trip to the Maine Sea Salt company. It’s a great mom and pop business, and the owner is more than happy to give you a tour and explain how they harvest salt. We visited Jasper beach twice and only saw two people there. The sounds of the water hitting the rock beach was not like anything I’d heard before—so relaxing. The cottage was well appointed and there’s a nice grocery store in Machias, along with several stores and a Walgreens where you can pick up anything you may need. Don’t forget to eat at Helen’s Restaurant at least once. If you don’t have room for a slice of pie afterwards, take it to go. Much like your stay at the Frisky Fish cottage, you won’t be disappointed!
