VISIT DELESDERNIER HOUSE, HISTORIC SEAPORT HOME ON THE BAY OF FUNDY

Eastport House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 8: BR1: 1 queen; BR2: 1 queen; BR3: 1 full & 2 twins; Wifi & Satellite TV

Come stay at Delesdernier House during its 206th year. Built in 1807 by Lewis Frederick Delesdernier, Eastport's first customs agent, this Federal-style home housed British officers for 5 years following the War of 1812. Amid pines on a tranquil street, Delesdernier House is located a few houses above a rocky beach on Cobscook Bay (part of the Bay of Fundy). The completely renovated house enjoys a lovely view of the bay, with a spacious lawn and ample parking. It has three bedrooms (sleeps maximum 8), one and one half baths, living room, dining room, laundry room, kitchen, and a deck off the kitchen. (Additional separate studio (sleeps 2) on property is also available.)

IMPROVEMENTS

JULY 2013: New living room furniture & new washing machine.

JULY 2012: Wifi, satellite TV, and a new 42' flatscreen TV, tuner/DVD/CD player + 6 speakers.

AUGUST 2011: New wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedrooms and upstairs landing.

JULY 2010: Bay view widened by vigorous landscaping.

AUGUST 2009: New beds in all bedrooms.

Lubec, Maine: Lubec, Eastport's sister seaside village, lies three miles across Cobscook Bay by ferry, or a 45-minute drive around the bay. It is home to cafes, restaurants, B & B's, and art galleries. The weekly Summerkeys concerts in Lubec's hilltop Congregational Church are one of the delightful summer experiences of both towns. The concerts are free, the music is wonderful, and the free home-baked intermission refreshments in the church basement are tasty. You can drive to the concerts, or you can leave your car behind and buy a ticket for the Eastport-Lubec passenger ferry. You will hear music in Lubec, and out on the bay, you may see moon and stars or you may see fog - but you won't forget the unique experience of getting to and from the concert by sea.

Campobello Island, New Brunswick: On Campobello Island, visit East Quoddy Lighthouse, Herring Cove Provincial Park, and Roosevelt Campobello International Park. The Roosevelt Park, jointly maintained by the United States and Canada, includes the 34-room 'cottage' of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt, and many miles of walking trails along the bay. You can reach Campobello Island either by crossing on the bridge from Lubec, or by taking car ferries from Eastport to Deer Island, then Deer Island to Campobello.

St. Andrews by the Sea, New Brunswick: A lovely day trip is to weave your way among Bay of Fundy islands on two ferries between Eastport and New Brunswick, and then drive a short distance to St. Andrews by-the-Sea. St. Andrews offers seaside cafes, restaurants, and a wide array of shops on Water Street, along with numerous museums and the Kingsbrae Botanical Garden. If you want to extend your visit, you can stay at one of St. Andrews small hotels, or treat yourself to Scottish elegance at the old Algonquin Hotel overlooking the town. The Sunday brunch at the Algonquin is sumptuous. Your return is then an easy drive through St. Stephen, New Brunswick and Calais, Maine, and back to Eastport via U.S. Route 1.

Sea Glass Studio

  • Submitted: Jan 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
My wife and I were coming to Eastport to look at a home for sale. Though the rental was listed from Saturday to Saturday the owner was able to accomadate our Thursday arrival and the next Sunday departure. Since it was just two of us, we stayed in the Sea Glass Studio. With its separate entrance, it was just what we needed. The queen size bed was comfortable and the kitchen allowed us to have breakfast and some lunches there. The bathroom was adequate. It had only a stall shower, but that was fine with us. The apartment was very roomy and clean and there was a nice yard with water views. As we were there when Sandy passed through, we didn't make much use of that! Also, we were able to use the land line phone in the apartment for local and long distance calls. This is important in Eastport, because most of the time your cell phone will roam to a Canadian tower. Our only negative was the cable tv did not work. This was really only a problem because of the approaching storm. As an added bonus, on two different occasions we had deer in the yard that were fun to watch. I would recommend Sea Glass for a single person or a couple. The owner was very accomodating and where else do you get a bottle of "Sea Glass" wine with your stay?
Owner's Response: We were able to reliably correct the television (satellite, actually) problem. DISH customer service was extremely helpful in resolving this.
Also, since this rental, we have installed a new, larger refrigerator.

Eastport at it's BEST

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was large enough to accommodate numerous teenagers as well as two adults and a 7 year old comfortably. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The home had Wi-Fi and an impressive Satellite or Cable TV system *(not sure which) with numerous movie channels. The system also had a VCR and DVD player with a multitude of movies. This kept the teens busy when they would need a break.

The home is located close enough to downtown for an excellent stroll. The yard was large, and came with a basket of lawn toys, which went over well with all the kids. A very slight stroll down to the end of the street connects you with the ocean side and a multitude of sea-side treasures. Our host was extremely gracious and helpful. The dining room of the house was large enough to accommodate our whole crew each night for a family dinner.

We met some amazing people during our stay in Eastport, many owning businesses on Water Street. I would recommend the Pet Store to all pet owners, great people there, and Dastardly Dicks Coffee Shop definitely hit the spot every morning! The bakery had some amazing treats and Jim Levondosky's Art Studio is full of amazing pieces. A local named Russ on Washington Street builds and sells some incredible patio/urban garden boxes that are perfect for gardeners who do not choose (or can't) bend down to the ground for gardening. He even provides a watering system within the boxes complete with piping. They are excellent quality and come in an array of sizes. You can see them for sale in his yard. We stopped in and were greeted very well and learned so much from Russ.

We enjoyed hanging out at the dock and catching mackerel galore (and eating at the food shack on the dock was a must!!!) as well as doing a fair share of clamming. We took a sail boat whale watching tour from Captain Harris and was amazed at the multitude of whales, seals and birds that we witnessed. The lady running the tour was extremely passionate and informative during the tour. Her assistants and the captain were amazing, kind and knowledgeable people also. I would recommend both the Delesdernier House and Eastport to anyone looking for that special place they will dream of returning to the minute they leave! Thank you for our amazing week!

We spent two weeks celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary in my husbands ancestors house! The house is big, clean and fully stocked. The owners are caring, friendly people and listen to suggestions. We did miss no TV reception but upon our suggestion cable is now being installed. Internet can be found at many of the Eastport shops or at the local library.

If we weren't 2000 miles away we would go back every year. Loved the town and it's friendly people.

Owner's Response: Thanks to the suggestion from our June anniversary guests, we have installed wifi and satellite TV connections plus a new 42-inch flatscreen TV and tuner-DVD-CD player.

I stayed there the last week in July 2009, and loved it. It's very clean and well kept. It's also very well stocked with everything you need. It's quiet, and a nice walk from the water, and from town. I loved the town! I have read Sarah Graves' books, and that's why I went to Eastport. I am going back as soon as I can!

Great stay

History buffs will love this place! For 200 years old, the house is in great shape ... just don't arrive expecting new construction. Much has been done to update. It's wonderful to have a washer & dryer and not rely on the laundromat. Note: Both full size beds have been replaced with new and very comfortable queen beds. So absolutely no need to put mattress on the floor as indicated in the previous review. We did not notice any musty smell at all - it smelled like cleaning supplies when we opened the door.

Six people can share this space very comfortably; noting that there is one full bath with an excellent shower. It's close enough to town for an easy walk, but remote enough to be on a peaceful street.

The owners genuinely care about your stay and the comfort of your visit, as evidenced by the upgrading of beds and all the small amenities. We would not hesitate to rent again for a future stay.

Enjoy a Downeast vacation in the charming seaside village of Eastport. Located on the Canadian border, this Bay of Fundy community offers a quaint harbor, restaurants & cafes, shops, music, plays, movies, art galleries, whale-watching excursions, bay-kayaking, and ferry rides to surrounding islands. Nearby attractions include picturesque lighthouses, lakes for swimming and fishing, Lubec (Maine), and Campobello Island & St. Andrews By-the-Sea (New Brunswick). Experience the bayside environment, fresh seafood, sunrises and sunsets by the water, and Fundy tides that rise and fall 20 feet twice each day. SUMMER NOTE: If summertime weather where you live gets hot and uncomfortable, Eastport makes a great escape. Located on Moose Island, the last of 3 islands connected by causeway to the mainland 7 miles away, Eastport's climate is moderated by the surrounding bay, and July and August high temperatures average in the mid-70's. AUTUMN NOTE: The seaside autumn colors here are lovely.

Other Activities: Lighthouses, whale-watching, kayaking, hiking, plays, concerts, movies, Eastport Arts Center (The checklist above includes live theater; small-town Eastport has lots of live music, too.)
