Our stay in the Gardner house at Mic-Mac Farms was more delightful than anything we had imagined. Prior to arriving, our hostess went out of her way to accommodate my dietary needs without making any fuss. From the moment we turned onto the property we felt as if we were in a different world. The 1/4 mile drive passes under a canopy of birch trees, around a field trees and arrives at a quaint Maine cottage with weathered wood siding, with a garden of mixed perennials and wildflowers. The inside of the house is as quaint as the outside, full of early American antiques. Our hostess was there to greet us and showed us to our room which was separated from the family living quarters by a library full of old books, the main room and the kitchen. Our room was nice-sized with a private, modernized bathroom and jetted tub. The windows were open, letting the breeze flow in from the river. The bed was comfortable with layers of covers to accommodate warm and cool nights. Lighting was excellent for reading in bed, on the sofa or in a chair. Plenty of closet space made it easy to stow away luggage. Our sliding screen door opened onto a small deck with a view down the lawn to the Machias river. We could hear birds in the trees next to the house, watch the Osprey and Mergansers fish in the river, and catch site of harbor seals as they swam up and down the river. Down on the lawn – two Adirondack chairs awaited us.
Breakfast in the morning was very special – home-made blueberry scones, and cantaloupe. I took a walk through the property and found myself deep in the woods on a blazed trail. Our hostess offered other breakfast items, but we chose to stick with home-made blueberry pancakes, muffins and scones. Our hostess provided a key so that we could come and go as we pleased for sightseeing and early birding trips. We visited several state and national parks in the US and Canada – all within an hour of the property. It was truly a wonderful 4 days – we could not bear to leave.
We looked at the cabins on our way out - they were cozy, with matching decor and kitchenette. They too sat on the river, but shielded from the house by a stand of trees.

Very quaint and charming accomadations. Beautiful setting. We were treated to bald eagles in flight while sitting and relaxing along the river. Wonderful accomadating owner.

Room Tip: Private, quiet setting.

I highly recommend this Maine gem. I stayed in the guestroom of the main house, and was enthusiastically welcomed by the owners daughter! She immediately ran out to the garden and picked flowers for the breakfast table, where I was served blueberry muffins and a large pot of coffee the next day. I plan to return this september with my husband, and to stay in one of the cottages - where facilities to make your own coffee & breakfast are ample.
The view to the river is serene and lovely, and the main building itself a treasure of antiques and rustic beauty - it was very difficult to leave! Also, the price is very reasonable for what you get.
I look forward to returning!

Stayed here one night with my wife and the little cabin was clean, well provisioned with a kitchen and games, lovely furnishings, great view of the river behind, plenty of hot water in the shower. Spiffy clean. Everything's kind of far from everything in DownEast Maine, but the location was good enough considering that.

Now the caveats - proximity to the river means MANY vicious mosquitoes. Got eaten alive. Bathe in DEET if you go. Also, no wifi, despite what was advertised. Similar issue with breakfast - apparently (and the promotional literature is vague on this) you only get breakfast if you stay in the main house, not the cabins. Finally, although the proprietor was very nice, her information on things to do in the area was a little out of date.

All that said, we enjoyed the stay and might even stay there again.
