Holiday Rental House
What are you looking for in a vacation rental? You want more than a hotel. You want a home. It should be inviting and warm. It should be comfortable, clean, with just enough amenities and special touches to feel pampered during your stay. You want a place to remember and want to return to long after your vacation is over. Welcome to the FRISKY FISH COTTAGE! The Frisky Fish is a small (two bedroom) waterfront cottage along with a SEASONAL boathouse/bunkhouse/artist studio located in beautiful Bucks Harbor, Maine. It offers a unique vacation experience in the middle a working tidal fishing harbor, surrounded by fishing activity.

It should be comfortable, clean, with just enough amenities and special touches to feel pampered during your stay. You want a place to remember and want to return to long after your vacation is over. Welcome to the FRISKY FISH COTTAGE! The Frisky Fish is a small (two bedroom) waterfront cottage along with a SEASONAL boathouse/bunkhouse/artist studio located in beautiful Bucks Harbor, Maine. It offers a unique vacation experience in the middle a working tidal fishing harbor, surrounded by fishing activity. It IS the perfect place for those looking for an authentic down east Maine experience and adventure. The lobstering and fishing activity is a fascinating pastime - there is always something to watch right from the property. ***IMPORTANT INFO*** THIRD BEDROOM (BUNKHOUSE) IS ONLY AVAILABLE WARMER MONTHS (usually July and August only). It is a separate building and has no heat nor bathroom. During July and August, the Frisky Fish and Boathouse sleeps FIVE total. All other times, the cottage alone sleeps only four. Watch the lobster boats come and go and unload their catch, directly from the front yard of our tiny cottage. The Frisky Fish is a unique and whimsical, squeaky-clean, and very comfortable home. THE BEACH COTTAGE: ** Great Room - soaring cathedral ceiling and windows on three sides for over-the-water ocean breezes. ** Full kitchen as part of the great room with full size appliances and plenty of cooking tools ** First floor bedroom - small bedroom with queen bed, dresser and closet. ** First floor bathroom - full bath with tub/shower combo and washer and dryer. ** Loft bedroom - king size bed with dresser and reading nook overlooking the cove. ** Small upstairs half-bath. THE BOATHOUSE/BUNKHOUSE/STUDIO During warmer months (usually only July/Aug/Sept), the rental includes use of the boathouse if you should want to use it (however, our occupancy can never exceed FIVE due to town regulations). There are three twin beds, lots of board games, outdoor games, a television, mini-fridge, and it's just a darn cute place to spend some time. It's been used as a bunkhouse, a music recording retreat, an artist studio, a quilting area. (There is, however, NO plumbing so no bathroom out there and no heat). All of our property is smoke-free .

About the neighbourhood
It's the perfect location for attending the Margaretta Days Festival in June, The 4th of July celebration and the Blueberry Festival in August and then returning to the cottage to enjoy a dinner of local lobster and clams on the back picnic table surrounded by water. The Frisky Fish is approximately 8 miles from the town of Machias with a grocery store, restaurants including the famous, Helens, known for their delicious blueberry pie , The French Cellar - a wine and cheese store, Whole Live Natural Foods & Cafe, etc. The nearest lobster pound is just around the corner and over the hill or visit 'Mother Shuckers Lobsters' in Roque Bluffs on your way home from a day at the state park and sandy beach.
