vacation rental description

She sits high on the banks of the tidal waters of the St Croix River, overlooking Canada and historic St Croix Island, site of one the first European settlements of North America.  The quintessential coastal Maine two story summer cottage is wrapped in vintage shake siding of robin’s egg blue with decks on every level to enjoy the natural surroundings. Richly mellowed-down knotty pine paneling enhances the interior throughout.  A quaint but well appointed country kitchen with old beadboard cabinets, tile counters, and old copper sink is at each guest’s disposal. A fully enclosed glassed in porch graces the entire front with breathtaking views of the river.  And upstairs two bedrooms offer complete comfort with a double size bed in one room and a queen size in the other...both will provide guests  the experience of being kissed by the first rays of dawn in the USA.
Here is the perfect getaway cottage for peace and relaxation...a writers and artists paradise. Comfortably outfitted with an eclectic mix of quaint furnishings, Rose Haven offers antique decor in every room...some can even be purchased for the perfect take-home souvenir!
Nearby attractions can include beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, or hiking on the many well established trails.  Shopping, dining, farmers market, movies and concerts are conveniently located uptown in nearby Calais... or go exploring the Maritime communities of New Brunswick including Campobello Island and the most easterly coastal villages of Eastport and Lubec.
And one doesn’t have to go anywhere to enjoy this little piece of paradise...just sit and read...smell the salt lobster boats tending to their traps...listen to the  cries of gulls and ospreys...or experience a bald eagle swooping down right before your eyes...
Rose Haven will surely fulfill the dream for a delightful Maine vacation...and ensure wonderful memories....

traveler reviews for this calais cottage rental

Everything I wanted, and more!

Review submitted: June 26, 2013   Date of arrival: June 20, 2013

This perfect little cottage was everything, and more, than I had hoped for! Mary is the perfect hostess and extremely friendly and esay to communicate with. The cottage was so beautiful and peaceful. Perfectly decroated and comfortable, the smell of old wood and Christmas pine flowed through the house with the cool breezes coming in through the open windows. Every morning, the sunrise (before 5am!), painted a new picture even more beautiful than the morning before. The sounds of the birds, the creaking of the old wood as you walk up the stairway, the comforts of home cooking in adorable kitchen, made my vacation one of the happiest that I've ever had. I highly recommend visiting Mary and Rose Haven!!!!!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
