Situated right on Wallace Cove in Milbridge, the Seal's Rest Cottage gives you the opportunity to experience a classic Maine beach rental. This sweet cottage sits just feet from the beach and gives you the impression that you can just reach out the window and touch the sand.

If you want to step back from the hectic pace of life and just relax, then Seal's Rest is the place for you. This quaint, rustic cottage offers 4 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms to accommodate your family. There is a limit of 4 occupants in the rental, so everyone can have their own private space should they choose to.

On the main level of the cottage you will find the open concept kitchen/living room/dining area, two small bedrooms each with a twin bed, 1 ½ bathrooms and a game/puzzle room. Two separate second floor spaces house the master bedroom with a queen bed and a guest “bunk room” with a queen bed and 2 twin beds. Other amenities include a full kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, etc. The cottage also comes equipped with satellite TV, a gas/propane outdoor grill, hammock, outdoor furniture, bed linens, blankets, and bath towels. There are no laundry facilities at this property, but there is a laundromat located right in town near the grocery store.

The central attraction to this property is the beach at Wallace Cove. The Seal's Rest Cottage was originally a small, rustic camp called "Kampenuf" that perched just above the beach. The original camp still stands and houses the living room, kitchen and dining area. Improvements and upgrades to the camp were added over the years to expand the living area and add bedrooms and bathrooms. The "Kampenuf" sign still remains posted over the door leading into the old camp. It serves as a reminder of days gone by and lets visitors know that this special place is "just enough" to help revive and refresh you.

With the beach just steps away, you will want to spend as much time as possible outside and enjoying the sand and water. There is a nice stone path that leads from the lawn area down to the beach. It’s an easy port for your kayaks and the beach is a wonderful launching area from which to explore the shore. If you don’t have your own kayaks, you can rent kayaks from Sunrise County Canoe & Kayak in Machias. They offer rentals (with delivery and pick up) and guided tours.

The little town of Milbridge is one of Downeast Maine’s undiscovered gems. Even though it is a small fishing village, Milbridge offers visitors just about everything one could need. Most of the town amenities are located right along Route 1, so they are easy to find. If you plan to cook meals for yourself, the Bayside Shop & Save offers a good variety of choices from fruits & vegetables, meats, breads and even wine, beer and liquor. There is also a weekly Farmer’s market that sets up in the grocery store parking lot for you to enjoy. Fresh Maine lobster, fish and clams can also be purchased in town at Chipman’s Wharf. Buy lobster fresh off the boat, take it home and cook it yourself. What could be better? On Friday nights throughout the summer, find your way to the town wharf to enjoy an evening of music. There’s something for everyone from classical to country.

If you want to give yourself a break from “kitchen duty”, there are several options in town as well. The Milbridge House offers breakfast and lunch, and 44 North caters to the lunch and dinner crowd. There is also Vasquez Take Out which provides authentic Mexican fare and is a “must visit” when in the area.

The Seal’s Rest Cottage is located in a good jumping off point for traveling south to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park or north to Lubec and Eastport. Renters will certainly want to plan some time in Maine’s famous Acadia National Park. There is so much to see and do whether you plan to hike, sea kayak, shop, eat popovers at The Jordan Pond House, or go on a whale watch. The possibilities are endless and the scenery never disappoints.

If you travel north to Lubec, be sure to carve out some time to visit the Easternmost Point in the US – West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. You can visit the museum at the lighthouse and go hiking on beautiful shorefront trails. If the border is open, you can also travel across the bridge to Campobello Island, Canada and tour the sights there. FDR’s summer home – Campobello – is located there. Tours of the cottage are well worth your time.

Washington and Hancock counties have some of the most beautiful hiking trails. Experienced and novice hikers alike can find something that works for them. A few of our favorites include the Bold Coast Trails in Cutler, Pigeon Hill in Steuben, Tunk Mountain in Franklin area, and Petit Manan Wildlife Preserve in Steuben. Check out options online at the Bureau of Public Lands or use the AllTrails app on your phone to locate many different options. The coastline is rugged, rocky, and unspoiled. There is so much to explore.

Artists and photographers will find a bounty of landscapes to capture. You can set up right next to the cottage and paint the ocean vista or travel about to find the perfect spot. Many visitors discover the Schoodic Peninsula in the Winter Harbor area and marvel at the rocky, granite shores and sandy beaches. Are you a plein air painter? The landscapes in the area will astound and delight you, and will stimulate your inner artist.

After a day of exploring, come back to the cottage and put your feet up. Whether you decide to sit and watch the sunset or relax and watch a movie, you will not be disappointed. The Seal’s Rest Cottage has something for everyone. Come see what this area has in store for you!

Seal's Rest does allow well behaved, adult dogs (limit of 2/rental). No pets of any other kind are permitted at the property.

No smoking is permitted in the property.
