    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Designed to evoke a ship, this stylish 2BD home overlooks the ocean and is surrounded by 50 acres of woods, wildlife, and area beaches. Complete privacy but only 17 min from town. Hike, kayak, BBQ, explore Downeast harbors, or just relax on the deck.

    The Prowhouse was designed by Machiasport poet and sea captain Phil Rose to evoke the prow of a ship. The home's distinctive, angular 'prow' and its floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Howards Cove, a lovely crescent of ocean water and woodlands cupped in the north by unique Jasper Beach.

We just returned from spending five nights at the Prowhouse. What an amazing property! The views from the house were spectacular. It was so enjoyable to just sit and take in the view, watch the boats and at night there was a beautiful full moon lighting up the sea with Machias Seal Island lighthouse blinking far out on the horizon.....absolutely... more
