Aquatic safari right outside your window

Whales, porpoise, seals, and eagles from your front window!! Not to mention the lovely private beach and cozy cottage. A truly beautiful spot. Owners, Dennis and Margaret are delightful and very helpful. Not a place for lots of shopping or nightlife, but the sunsets are entertaining enough and if you sit quietly you can hear the porpoise and whales breathing as they swim by. Now that's entertainment!! There is plenty to see and do in the nearby area, if you can tear yourself away from the Sea Urchin. Machias Seal Island has thousands of puffins until mid August. This was an amazing trip and tours are available from the lovely village of Cutler about 45 minutes from the Sea Urchin. Local whale watching trips are available and are really great fun. I would recommend Capt Riddle's just down the road. It's a fairly small, but safe, boat, not overcrowded and whales come up close. There are also many beautiful lighthouses nearby. East Quoddy Head is within walking distance. Restaurants on Campobello Island were hit or miss. We found this to be very surprising, but owners, Dennis & Margaret will steer you in the right direction, and Lubec also has a few good spots. Cohill's Inn is good, and definately the Home Port Inn. You can also buy live lobster, steam them at the cottage, role up your sleeves and dig in. Wonderful!! This is an outstanding place to stay if you love wildlife, nature, and natural beauty.
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: We were so pleased to accomodate Donna and her husband for her vacation on Campobello Island. If all of our tenants were as tidy and neat as Donna was we wouldn't need a cleaning lady!!
Donna was an excellent tenant and a perfect visitor to the Island as she was looking for unspoiled beauty and the charm and simple amenities of the Sea Urchin Cottage. Campobello Island is perfect for the eco tourist or someone wanting peace and quiet with unspoiled views of the ocean and the wildlife that passes by the cottage. We have 3 cottages located on several acres that are private from one another. If you want a nice vacation please visit our cottages.
