Lovely, wonderful, and the ultimate Maine vacation!
We came for lobsters, exploration, rest and relaxation. And that's exactly what we got. The Frisky Fish was a great home away from home and we enjoyed our stay immensely.
The true Maine experience
The Frisky Fish is located in the heart of all things Maine—from lobster boats to sheep you have idyllic scenery at every view! The cottage is well appointed with everything you need. We did day trip hikes to Quoddy lighthouse, Cutler, and Roque Bluffs. Returning back to the cottage to recline in Adirondack chairs while we watched the tide come back in made for a perfect evening.
If you want to experience a unique, relaxing, and beautiful vacation, this is a great place. You will have a bit of a drive to get to groceries or restaurants but the scenery is amazing and time passes quickly. We ate a lobster roll some place new every day! If you love the outdoors and don’t mind being off the beaten path, this is your spot!
The real Maine
This trip was a lot of fun. The manager of the property really lists out good things to do in the area which is really nice. Pretty much everyone in town is just super nice. I would definitely check out the sea salt factory. The man who runs it is a “real Mainer” so it really gives you an opportunity for some one on one conversation with a man from the area. He’s really nice and funny. You will probably not get to do much swimming because the water is so cold in Maine. 62 was the highest we saw and stayed in August. But there are several beaches to check out. When we went to grays beach which is partially sandy we had the whole thing to ourselves. We kinda ran out of things to do right around town but we were 45 minutes from New Brunswick Canada. That is a must see trip. Across the border is a chocolate factory museum. So we check that out and bought a lot of chocolate. We drove to a lighthouse up there and took pictures. It was cool because right across the water we were looking at Nova Scotia. It was not a far drive. New Brunswick also has a huge aquarium exhibit that my kids just loved. They let you pick up star fish and hermit crabs amongst other things. Plus they feed the seals which just tickled my kids. You drive through a moose national refuge to get to Canada which is super cool. You are about 2 hours from bar Harbor here which is a tourist trap. We made the trip down and it’s gorgeous down there. Lots of decent prices on shirts and other souvenirs. The sand beach is bar Harbor was the nicest we went to. It looked like a Caribbean beach with the color only way colder. Rogues bluff we went to and that was the nicest beach all sand near the cottage. It really is a good deal I thought for the cottage with the price and what you get. I felt like the manager was trying hard to make sure my vacation was great. I told her I was bringing young children and she went out of her way to obtain pack and plays so I didn’t have to bring them. It really is 5 star customer service. And that was free. So that’s the positive. It’s long lol. The negative is the bugs really come out at night. You need to have bug spray and a good amount of it. They really didn’t bother us during the day except at rogues bluff. Also the beds are super soft. More of a preference thing but if you have back problems beware. I like soft beds my wife doesn’t.
We woke up one morning and had a bald eagle 20 feet from our door. We saw a huge moose. Great trip honestly
Great place for relaxing and excellent home base for exploring!!!
We loved our time at Frisky Fish Cottage!. It is a quiet, comfortable, and soothing place to be with great views of the harbor, the tides, the activity of the lobstermen, and clammers. The kitchen is well-equipped and ready for cooking the fantastic lobsters we got from the lovely folks at The Lobster Trap just down the street. We enjoyed hanging out at the house and exploring the beaches that the host recommended to us. The cottage was also a great home base for exploring -- we drove to Canada twice to explore Campobello Island and the Kingsbrae Gardens in New Brunswick. The host and the property manager were responsive to all inquiries and made us feel extremely welcome. We are already planning our next visit.
Our week at the Frisky Fish was all we hoped it would be. Really nice accommodations, great scenery - lobsters traps and boats out the front and two sweet sheep out the side, and nice quiet nights. FDR's summer home in Campobello was just an hour away and Acadia Nat'l Park was just a little farther. We took Marie's advice and tried Helen's Restaurant in Machias, Mother Shucker's Lobster and also the lobster pound right down the street called The Lobster Trap. We would highly recommend all three. We cooked our own lobsters for dinner three times and it was the best we've ever had. We were introduced to "shedders" and now have a new favorite - so easy to crack and so sweet. Thank you so very much, Marie, for all your spot on tips and a great place to some back to each evening.
