QUODDY HOUSE ON THE OCEAN

Lubec House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms w/ double bed each downstairs; sleeps 8 upstairs

As the eastern-most home in the U.S., this 1830's cape is next to Quoddy Head State Park. Scenic ocean view, including the town of Lubec and Campobello Island. Total privacy on 12 acres of fields, beach, and apple orchard with hammock. This spot is ideal for bird watchers and nature lovers. From the property, several Bald Eagles are daily viewed. Many ducks, woodcock, and deer are active. On the bay, fishing boats are daily on the move or at work. The night sky is just a dome of stars. Hiking trails of varying lengths are either right out the door or within a few minutes drive. Even though the house can sleep twelve, it is still very cozy for a couple. Quoddy House is an excellent location to host a family reunion or multi-family gathering. No smoking in this home.

Wedding Location: Quoddy House has hosted weddings and anniversary celebrations. This is a great location for a family reunion. One couple spent their honeymoon there, as well. This is a spectacular location for a seaside wedding or family gathering. The fields overlook the ocean and islands. There is ample room, on the land, to accommodate almost any number of guests. For a reception, large party tents can be erected either right by the ocean in a field or by the house around the apple orchard. There are two weddings and one family reunion scheduled for 2008.

QUINTESSENTIAL MAINE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Quoddy House. The 183 year old home was clean, comfortable and cozy. The twelve acre property with its wildflower meadow and rocky shore was alive with warblers, ruffed grouse and deer. We even spotted an ermine! We saw bald eagles most days and harbor seals swimming by along with loons, common eider and cormorants. We had glorious weather with temperatures never getting past 80 and one foggy day we didn't get out of the 50's! We hiked the trails of Quoddy Head State Park and Campobello Island where we saw minke whales, more harbor seals, spruce grouse, razorbills and scoters. Quoddy House on the Ocean is a lovely home in a beautiful part of Maine! Thank you Kate and Tony!

QUODDY HOUSE IS WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Since we arrived home from Quoddy House, we've been recommending it to any friend or family member that seems to have even a remote interest in coastal Maine. We were five adults (three sisters, two mates), there for a week in late June, and found it was the perfect place to have some time together. We've taken a number of sisters trips together over the past 15 years, and this ranked as the most serene.

The house is comfortable and homey, clean and well kept; and while it has only one bathroom, we didn't find that a problem. The comfy beds were a real plus. The location and property are pretty amazing -- we all lost hours to just staring across that large open meadow of wild flowers, with its mown paths, out to the water. And then there's the wonderful rocky beach that we could scramble down to, and where time likewise got away from us. I'm not sure I've ever seen our dog happier. The chance to be in a place that let one escape the electronic world (and where the impulse to turn on the computer didn't even raise its head) was refreshing.

On our second morning there, and the first clear day, we saw a whale breaching, several harbor seals, two porpoises and an eagle --- all from the back yard or beach! Mysteriously, there were no black flies, mosquitoes or biting flies at all -- so we were able to sit outside any time of day or evening without having to defend ourselves.

Campobello Island is both lovely to look at, from the house, and well worth visiting -- for the history, but especially for the trails. And there are endless other great trails in the area -- the Bold Coast Trail is especially spectacular, but the West Quoddy State Park trails (these start essentially right next door) we found plenty stunning.

Kate and Tony were traveling during our stay, so we missed meeting them, but Kate was great to deal with making arrangements, and she made sure we were well taken care of during our stay.

The area offers all sorts of good adventures, some quirky, some magnificent, and many of the small towns have their own very distinct personalities; but just staying home at Quoddy House and staring at the sea is a privilege. We absolutely loved it.

PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend & I just spent a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Quoddy House. Our goal was to find a cozy, waterfront, dog-friendly rental in a scenic area and this fit the bill and then some. The ocean views are spectacular and we spent a lot of time just sitting on the grassy field watching the waves, relaxing and spotting Bald Eagles. The house itself was very cute, comfy, clean and had all the amenities we needed. Lots of great Maine accents & decor, too. We enjoyed visiting Quoddy State Park (which was within walking distance) as well as checking out some of the local shops & eateries. "Monica's Chocolate" is a must!

One of the best parts of this trip was how easy it was to arrange the reservations and how incredibly accommodating Kate (the home owner) was. She gave us helpful tips & suggestions of sights to see and things to do, as well as answered all our questions thoroughly & promptly and in a very outgoing, friendly manner. She even checked in with us afterward to ask how the weekend went.

We would definitely highly recommend staying at the Quoddy House! Relaxing, quiet, serene & spacious. Not overly touristy, yet close enough to lots of great landmarks and areas of interest. Oh, and our dog had a blast, too!!

A GREAT SPOT FOR A RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
As a non profit in the Lubec area, we were able to use Quoddy House for a day long staff retreat. It was a perfect location. The stunning vistas all around the house provided us with a wonderful space to work together, to clear our heads, catch our breath, and relax. The house provided a beautiful sanctuary. We were surrounded by comforts, views, and all the touches that make a welcoming setting.

We highly recommend this location for anyone seeking to get away and relax. The views out every window are breathtaking. Thanks, Kate and Tony, for making this peaceful place available to us.

A VERY SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The pictures and descriptions on this site don't begin to do justice to Quoddy House. An absolutely beautiful and intact early cape right on the water....and caring, attentive owners....it really doesn't get much better than that....

We just got back from a week there and it was amazing....the views, the scenery, the wildlife, the kindness of everyone we dealt with---particularly the owners Kate and Tony! I've already made plans to go back next year. Our children (7, 9 and 13) absolutely loved it as well...."best trip to Maine we've ever had" said the 7 year old. The upstairs of the house can sleep quite a few people and was like a private utopia for the boys..... It is unusual in that while it could sleep a lot of people it would still feel cozy for a couple as well.

Charmingly furnished, It's set up with everything it would seem you could need----very kid friendly, lots of toys, books, games etc., fully equipped kitchen, nice full bath....

Truly a special place......we recommend it wholeheartedly....

QUODDY HOUSE IS A SPECIAL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We are headed back to Quoddy House for our third summer and couldn't be more happy to rent from Kate & Tony. The property is breath taking and the house is a perfect getaway for a few or a lot of people. We could stay at the house all day, exploring the 12 acres, going down to the rocky beach, etc. We saw bald eagles from the house at least 4 times during the week we were there.

The house isn't fancy, but it's very clean and well-equipped for those of you who love to cook and eat while on vacation. The beds are comfortable and there are ocean views from most rooms in the house.

West Quoddy State Park is a 10 minute walk from the property and has lovely hiking trails. Additional hiking trails are located an easy car ride and include many scenic ocean side hikes.

Kate is a wonderful hostess and is happy to provide information concerning local attractions including local farmers markets, whale watching tours, Campobello Island and Eastport. There is also a basket full of maps and brochures for the local attractions.
