Formerly Beach Front Cottages

Grand Manan is known for its warm hospitality, friendly Island people and carefree atmosphere. We invite you to come and rest a while. The natural beauty of nature and the unspoiled coast are yours to explore. Here you can discover rugged cliffs, picturesque lighthouses, weathered wharves, tiers of lobster traps and stunning sunsets. Enjoy the thrill of being in close proximity to a whale as she blows or relish an encounter with the comical puffins on nearby Machias Seal Island.

Hike on one of the Island’s numerous trails where there are spectacular views from 300-foot cliffs, or bring your bicycle and tour the Island at your own pace! The numerous beaches offer a treasure-trove of shells and driftwood for the beachcomber. Enjoy yourself on the Island’s nine-hole golf course or it’s challenging mini-golf course. Take in a game of tennis or swim at the public pool. Browse the quaint gift shops or visit the excellent, informative museum. So come on in and browse our site! Your ‘Grand Manan Vacation’ is waiting for you!

Thank you so much!

Pa’s Place, our family home, was originally one of the rental options of Beach Front Cottages.  We were pleased to operate and maintain the cottages for twenty-eight years.  Thank you to ALL of our patrons who made this a successful experience.  In this season of our lives we feel a desire to simplify in many different ways.    Consequently, we have decided to forego Beach Front Cottages and to retain Pa’s Place as our sole rental property.  We hope that you will continue to visit our beautiful island and consider our homestead to be your own while here on Grand Manan.
