Way down east Maine, where the sun first hits the shores of the nation, lies 80-plus acres of pristine oceanfront property with breathtaking views of the Atlantic, a mile and a half of walkable shoreline, meandering paths through fields and forest, and a truly 'Magical By Nature' setting that you have only dreamed of. Rossport By the Sea Lodging and Retreats offers a one-of-a-kind Maine experience. Situated between Passamaquoddy and Cobscook Bays - where the 40-foot tides are the highest in the nation and the surrounding waters are an unforgettable royal blue, is an authentic backdrop for privately spaced, beyond extraordinary accommodations.
Owner Ross Furman has - over the last thirty years - infused his remarkable vision and stewardship onto this unique property, which offers cottages, converted and fully equipped barn cabins and lofts, a 1790's renovated farmhouse, a 60'x100' foot Red Barn equipped with a kitchen and game room, and sprawling views of gardens, hayfields, ocean, and forest for all to enjoy. Furman has been described as a super friendly and down-to-earth man who prides himself on hospitality, which has earned him a "Superhost" status badge on Airbnb. He truly has created a seaside paradise on this far eastern tip of our nation in down east Maine.
You won't want to miss watching the gorgeous Maine coast sunsets with their palette of burnt orange, goldenrod, cerulean blue, and magenta reflecting on the ocean in front of your cottage, or the smells of hayfields mixed with salt air, and then waking to the sounds of farm life as the coffee is brewed and belted galloways, pigs, and laying hens are all fed, gardens watered - and the tide comes and goes bringing the treasure of another beautiful day in Maine.

Whether you be honeymooners looking to wander and kick back, or perhaps you are seeking a wedding destination venue, family reunion, or retreat, our facilities provide a quintessential Maine experience, where guests can unplug from the daily grind of city life.
