Located on Campobello Island, home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Summer home and International Park, the cottage offers spectacular and close-up views of whales, eagles, seals, porpoises, ospreys and other wildlife from the house or the beautiful screened in Gazebo atop a cliff overlooking the water.

The cottage is within walking distance of the most photographed lighthouse in New Brunswick and connected by bridge to the US mainland at Lubec, Maine. Head Harbor Wharf is within walking distance for Whale Watch and fishing trips as well as to watch the local fisherman at work. This cute house is fully furnished as a vacation home.

WHALE OF A VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We have rented both Whale of a View and also the Periwinkle Cottage from Dennis Haire. He is wonderful to deal with, the cabins are very functional and well turned out. There is basically everything you need here. Most importantly, this is one of the singularly most beautiful locations you will ever see. Whales, seals, eagles, and the beauty of Roosevelt Campobello International Park. The local caretaking is excellent and pleasant to work with. I cannot say enough good about dealing with these folks. We have enjoyed every minute of every vacation we've taken to Dennis' properties.

Owner's Response: The Johnson family have been excellent guests at our cottages. Always respectful of the property and leaving the cottage as good or better than it was the day they checked in. Welcome anytime to this undiscovered Paradise off the coast of Northern Maine.

5 STAR ACCOMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Perriwinkle Cottage adjacent to the cottage displayed, owned by the same. It was more than I could have asked for! So much more than I can write in this review. Highlights of our stay were definately sitting on the adirondak chairs just above the water when I seen my first ever whale (finback I believe). 3 times in one evening I spotted the whales, along with schools of porpoises and the many osprey. If you have ever heard the sound of a whale it is the most majestic and commanding sound I have ever heard. The island people will remain in our hearts, and this cottage on Campbello will definately be a yearly tradition now that we have found this gem. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner of the property who was the most gracious and kind gentleman we had encountered during our entire vacation. If I could sum up our stay in one word it would have to be...humbling.
