Comfy cottage right on the lake

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is steps from a sandy beach and a dock on Gardner Lake. I wish we'd brought a canoe or kayak. The cottage is not new or fancy but is homey, very clean and has everything you might need. The owner is next door, and unobtrusive but very responsive to a request we had. The location couldn't be more perfect... 20 min or so to the Cutler Bold Coast trail, (do not miss this!!!) and Jasper Beach and Roque Bluffs. Machias has everything you could want, and East Machias has the basics.

While I did like the cottage, it is definitely not set up for four adults. It sleeps 4 people, but the bunk beds are truly not adequate for adults. I couldn't sit up in the lower bunk and the upper bunk slats are not sufficient for adult weight. We put a single mattress on the floor which was fine for our needs.

Given all that, I would happily return.

Cute Lakeside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage for our Labor Day weekend. Clean, super quiet and super close to the beautiful lake. A great mid point for us to explore the Machias River, Pembroke and Lubec area. Would come back again!
