Welcome to Hearts of Maine’s Ocean Vista House, a classic Maine oceanfront seasonal getaway located in South Addison. This private three bedroom one full bath house boasts magnificent panoramic views of Cape Harbor, Nashes Head Light and the outstretched open ocean beyond.
The village of South Addison is nestled along shores of Cape Harbor, a small quiet and scenic fishing village with an eclectic mix of residents who enjoy friendly banter and helping their neighbors. Guests who vacation in the area love strolling the quaint village streets and purchasing lobsters and crabs at the local wharf at very affordable prices.
This house features a spacious master bedroom with king size bed, deck access and a wake-up-to-die-for harbor and ocean view. It also has two guest rooms with a queen size and two twin beds. The three bedrooms and single full bath all circle around the warm and homey great room, with its large ocean view glass windows, comfortable living area, dining area and cozy kitchen.
A great feature of this house is its large wrap-around deck that is perfect for family cook-outs, guest gatherings, harbor watching and just overall lounging and sun bathing. There is a harbor path that leads from the front of the house to the seashore, and is a great start to shoreline exploring.
The cottage also provides high speed Internet, satellite TV with DVD, radio/CD player, Ashley woodstove, firewood, all linens, cook-ware, place settings, utensils, washer, dryer, phone and gas grill.
The house is within 30 minutes of coastal hikes at Great Wass Island and at McClellan Park in Milbridge as well as inland mountain hikes at Catherine’s and Tunk Mountains in Township 10. Fine dining and family restaurants are located in Machias, Milbridge and Jonesport ,offering terrific seafood and local color within 20 to 40 minutes from the house.
Good fishing abounds in the lakes and ponds around the Machias and Cherryfield areas, or wet a line for trout in one of the nearby streams. Antique shops dot the many area coastal villages and Machias has a number of interesting shops for guests to explore.
A little further away in the fishing village of Cutler, Hearts of Maine recommends the coastal sightseeing and Atlantic Puffin tours to Machias Seal Island aboard the Barbara Frost with Captain Andy Patterson. We also highly recommend the whale watching and schooner cruises with Captain Butch Harris on the Sylvina Beal out of Eastport.
Whatever your interest in a rural setting we think vacationers will enjoy the laid-back atmosphere that this part of Downeast Maine provides.
