This romantic version of a ship captain’s home is nestled in the hills of historic Machiasport, above Machias Bay on the spectacular Bold Coast of Down East Maine.

Holding history in its walls, this 1840’s cape cod was recently renovated by an architectural historian and combines romantic historical nods with practical modern amenities – from smart TV to WiFi to smart speakers. It is the perfect getaway for couples or families who want to explore the rugged coastlines of Maine, or for lovers of history who simply want the experience of staying in a space that is part of Maine’s storied (and privateering) past.

Just 30 minutes from the Canadian border allows adventurous travelers (with passports) to explore the coastline even further north. For those who want to stay local, both land and sea are your (metaphorical and literal) oyster, as this home is within minutes of some of the most beautiful natural wonders.

And after a day (or seven) of exploring, Siren’s Song will call you home, where you can relax in front of the fire (either indoors or out – or both), or take in the sunrise with a view.
