Lubec Chalet Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 loft, 1 full bath, sleeps 5 well.

A renovated chalet-style home, maintaining its original Maine-woods character. The dining and living areas overlook Haycock Harbor, part of Downeast Maine's Bold Coast. The kitchen offers the convenience of a dishwasher and is fully equipped down to the lobster pot. The house has 2 bedrooms, one on the main floor and one upstairs, each w/a queen size bed, as well as a full-size sleeper-sofa in the loft. The loft offers a TV w/satellite-DVD, a built-in desk and shelves provide lots of space for your beach-combing finds. The main floor has one full bathroom, separate laundry room w/a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. The house sits back some 100 yards from the ocean's bold coast. Be the first in the US to see the sun rise while enjoying your morning coffee from the wrap around deck. From the comfort of the Adirondack chairs or the built-in deck seating, witness the northern skies' Milky Way, spectacular sunsets, soaring eagles, fluttering hummingbirds and other wildlife.

BEAUTIFUL, PRIVATE, CHALET, WITH AMAZING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
Deb and Jerry's Chalet was the perfect location and fit for an incredible week! The chalet provided amazing views both inside and out and outfitted with everything you could possibly need and more. Whether we were relaxing at the chalet or going on one of the many hikes, we found the location, view and atmosphere to be a perfect fit for our family. The chalet was neat and clean and set up well for a family. We explored the near by beach and harbor and spent time skipping stones, fishing, and just watching the lobster boats pass. We even saw a spectacular fireworks display!
We have been going to Lubec every year now since 2006 and the chalet is probably our favorite destination thus far. There is so much to do and see near by, one week just isn't enough. Our family had a blast hiking, exploring, watching the seals, whales, porpoises, and eagles, seeing local sites and shops. It was a wonderful week and we're hoping to get back this fall. Be sure to check out Deb and Jerry's shop "Northern Tides" as well for great Maine products, excursion advice, or even for a little friendly conversation.
Thanks Deb and Jerry for a spectacular week!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, and we are so glad to read that the whole family enjoyed their stay at our home as well as within Lubec. We do hope that you are able to visit us next year and explore some more the Bold Coast, Campobello Island, and the surrounding area. Take care and stay in touch, Jerry and Deb.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!

  • 5 of 5
We were hesitant to take a long car ride with 3 small children and rent a house but we were so happy we took on the challenge! The kids were even more excited with their "new home" than we were. So peaceful, comfortable, clean, homey-all with amazing views all day every day. Jerry and Debbie were so helpful leading up to our visit, and the house had everything we needed! It truly was like having a home away on vacation. We were so sad when our week was over. The kids still talk about "our house" in Maine!! Thank you for such a wonderful stay!!

Owner's Response: This is one of the best compliments that we could receive when children are calling our home, their "new Maine home." We were very excited to read that the kids (and parents) enjoyed themselves and the home everything they needed. We cannot wait to see you again, and if you have time, send us some Halloween pictures of the kids, we'd love to see them dressed up.
Take care and keep in touch.

A DREAM HOUSE FOR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is almost a perfect dream house for our vacation, providing exactly (more than exactly) what we want - complete tranquility and privacy, away from people (yet the drive to town only takes 15 minutes), beautiful scenery, viewing the starry sky including the milky way (depends on weather), seeing wild animals (we saw birds and hares), short walk to beach (though a rocky beach), comfortable home (bed, rooms, kitchen), spacious living area with natural lighting and unobstructed view, a large sundeck. What's more, the hosts are very friendly and helpful. No regret if you are looking for such vacation homes. A week is too short for us. Advice: Make sure to arrive before sunset!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for such a glowing recommendation! We're so glad that you were able to experience the tranquility of the home while spending your days exploring Maine's Bold Coast. It was wonderful meeting you all and we hope that you'll be able to return soon for an even longer stay. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience with us. We hope you enjoyed enough local lobsters, clams, blueberries and other Lubec treats to last you 'til you can return.

Sincerely,
Jerry and Deb

A PERFECT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
I work and live in Washington, DC and under constant pressure and stress at work for most of the summer. I was able to get a week off in August and was looking for a place where work could not get a hold of me and the temptation of checking email would be non existent. I love nature and being in the wilderness, however living in the city I often don't get that opportunity. Finding this house was a blessing and it fits my every desire. The house is well furnished, the kitchen is stocked with all the utensils and cooking tools i needed, there were towels and warm water for showers, it had everything and all I needed to bring were clothes and food. The view was just breathe taking and I was surrounded by forest and the sounds of nature. The pictures just do not do this place justice, its just amazing. There is also a quaint little town not to far that just has the best people operating small business locally owned. Unfortunately a week was too short, but I came back to work well relaxed and ready to start all over again. I cannot wait for my next visit!

THANK YOU!

  • 5 of 5
No Wi-Fi! No Cell Service! Just plenty of time to reconnect with our kids and for the entire family to unwind. Jerry and Deb provided a warm and inviting spot to read, watch the waves, hike, and enjoy the local seafood. Thank you for a wonderful week!

EXCEPTIONAL CHALET AND LOCALE!

  • 5 of 5
The visit to this rental and the surrounding area was an especially wonderful experience. The listing was totally accurate with respect to the locality, layout, amenities, and the overall experience. Upon arrival on 6/30 the property was spotless, well maintained, and well furnished. The owners were very diligent in ensuring a splendid and peaceful vacation; we were very comfortable with the level of service they were able and willing to provide.
While in the area, we took advantage of the numerous restaurants in the area, including Cohill’s Inn, Uncle Kippy’s, Inn at the Wharf (in Lubec), and the Chowder House (in Eastport). The lobster was fabulous and inexpensive. The wildlife was also exciting as well (we saw a moose cow and a deer in one evening on the return from Lubec).
We were aboard one of the schooners (Ada Lore) 3 times which sailed out of Eastport, for a whale sight seeing tour, sunset cruise, and to watch the postponed 4th of July Fireworks on 7/5. We also went mackerel fishing once as well, in and around Deer Island, Campobello, and north of Eastport.
The property is only 20 minutes from New Brunswick Canada, (Campobello Island), which was a most interesting place to visit as well (Passport required).
Other than perhaps the addition of a hot tub for chilly nights (even though the Midwest was experiencing 105 degree weather, the 4th of July temps never reached 70(!) there is nothing at all we would do to improve this rental. Generally, we had to run the quiet exhaust fan most days to keep the house from overheating from the sunshine that entered thru the large windows that faced the bay. The nights were pleasantly temperate.
The charm, history, and character of the Lubec/Eastport area is a gem on the eastern seaboard. I would recommend this location and chalet highly to all!
