About the neighbourhood
Featherbed Island house is located in the charming and historic village of Machiasport, Maine. It is the absolute perfect central location for your downeast Maine vacation - away from the crowds of Bar Harbor, yet close enough for day-tripping. In fact, it's less than a two hour drive from just about all of the sights in down east Maine.
The house itself if very private - at the very end of a narrow lane, surrounded by water and wood, yet a mile from historic Machiasport (you can see the charming profile of the village from the property) and just three miles from 'civilization'. Located at the bend of the Machias River where it greets the bay, the tides will lure you to watch them ebb and flow twice per day.
Getting around
What is there to do way down east?If you don't know, then you'd better come and find out! Machiasport and downeast Maine are a nature lover's paradise!
