COBSCOOK VIEW--A BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED HOME WITH A SPECTACULAR VIEW

Lubec House Rental Photos and Description

3BR Oceanview Vacation Rental Lubec, Maine USA

This three-bedroom/two-bath home is in the village of Lubec, Maine -- on a quiet side street that looks out over Cobscook Bay. It features a 160-degree view of over 25 islands -- the nearest of which is occupied by nesting eagles.

Cobscook View is a 1900-vintage house that has been beautifully restored with both traditional charm and all the modern conveniences. The most striking feature of the house is a huge deck (700 square feet) with spectacular views down to the bay, and over ten miles up through Head Harbor Passage into Canada.

A five- to ten-minute walk will bring you to the town landing -- with its breakwater (where a dozen seals often play in the tidal currents) and the SummerKeys Music program. It's a 15-minute walk (or a five-minute drive) to Roosevelt Campobello International Park, and the beginning of a shore trail that stretches almost ten miles along the coast. And several state, national, and provincial parks and refuges are within a 20-minute drive.

The main floor of the house has a living room, dining room, kitchen, a front porch, side porch, carport, and a deck. On the second floor there are three bedrooms (one with a queen-size bed, one with a double bed, and a very small room with a single bed), a bathroom, and a laundry room. Next to the deck there is a second living room that has a sleeping loft (with single and double beds), a futon-bed/couch, and another bathroom. Everything is in very good condition and we are constantly making improvements: a new deck, oak floors in the kitchen and dining room, and granite counters in the kitchen.

Please note that we only rent by the week (Sunday to Sunday) from May through October. In the winter we may be available for longer rentals ( two weeks or more). Please check the availability calendar before emailing.

At your request, we will gladly donate 10% of your rental to the Downeast Coastal Conservancy land trust to support their conservation efforts in the region.

Springtime in Maine

  • 5 of 5
The house was clean and well equipped, the manager was warm, professional and sincerely attentive to our needs. The house was large and set up for sleeping quite a few people with a nice kitchen affording jaw-dropping views even in inclement weather. My wife and I are from central Florida so we tend to avoid the typical tourist destinations and go to places that reflect the true history and culture of that region. Lubec was perfect for us! We would get out and walk around the town at least twice a day and we would make a point of greeting and making ourselves approachable to the locals. The Mainers' rewarded us by making us feel as welcome downeast as any place we have ever been. Beautiful people! The church on the top of the hill behind our place played brief but charming songs on the bells three time a day.....cool! We are already making plans to go back and are seriously considering moving to the Lubec area. Rusty and Teri

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed here two summers in a row. My family is from Lubec and I spent 15 summers there as a kid. Last year we brought two people with us, this year three others and, like everyone else who has ever been to Lubec, all of them are ready to come back. It is one of the unspoiled places, but with much to do and, strangely enough, several excellent restaurants [we are all fussy] (especially from mid-June to September when everything is open -- otherwise, it's a gorgeous place with not much to do and that can be really appealing also).
Cobscook's View is the best location in town, an excellent renovation with character and the best view in Lubec. Breakfasts and sunset cocktails on the deck are irresistible.
Although I do not know the owner personally, we have always found him and his representative to be quickly responsive to any questions and very friendly, unobtrusive but concerned. Perfect.
2 ½ hours from Bangor International airport [an extremely user-friendly place].
We’ll be back. Enjoy.

Peaceful, beautiful home away from home!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing week in Lubec staying in this beautiful home! The views are breathtaking and the house provided everything we needed to be comfortable and to feel truly at home. We left every day to explore the beaches and towns around Lubec and returned happily each evening to enjoy the sunsets or cocoon in the deck room. We loved the people we met in Lubec, as well, and can't wait to go back! Thank you for making this lovely spot available to us!!!

Beautiful, well-equipped, comfortable home, exactly as described (we've rented it several times). Perfect location -- in town, close to everything and still very quiet. A view that can't be beat.

Thanks for another great vacation!

Cobscook View -- QUITE the view!

  • 5 of 5
Cobscook View is all about The Views. The waterfully-beautiful little town of Lubec begins Morning before any other place in the country, and from this house you can savor the ever-changing views of sea and sky from the time you open your eyes in the the morning until you close them at night (especially if you have the master bedroom !! )

The house is oriented toward the water: large windows and
a huge deck let you enjoy every change of weather and tide. Sunrises are gentle, sunsets spectacular, with the
best colors coming after the sun is already down. And you'll see it all, if this house is your vacation home.

The owners were easy to work with and have property managers who live right next door, in case there are emergencies or questions. House was very clean (thank you !) and comfortable. The one thing prospective renters should know is that all the bedrooms involve some type of climbing -- either stairs to the 3 bedrooms on the second floor, or a ladder to the loft sleeping area above the family room. No bedrooms on the main floor. Nice laundry, great showers! (At least, mine on the second floor was great -- I didn't use the one on the main floor.)

Lubec is a wonderful little town to walk...sea air, a few hills for cardio workouts, interesting houses and friendly people. You'll have a range of dining choices -- casual or upscale. We tried almost everything, and found there
really are more dining options in Lubec than appear at first glance.

If you need a lawn for kids to play, this is not a house for you.

There's plenty of sightseeing, most of it focused on the
great natural beauty of the area. The owners provide a notebook full of suggested activities. If you're there in the summer, don't miss a Summer Keys concert. Check the bulletin boards for local events -- often much more fun than
typical "tourist" activities.

Take your passport. Living within sight of that bridge to Campobello every day, you'll wish you had it along.

Although Lubec seems out-of-the-way, you'll find most of
life's necessities: grocery store, bank, post office, gas,
library with Internet access, church choices.

If you want shopping and "attractions", wait to go until June -- in May, many things we wanted to do were not yet available.

By far the best reason to go to Lubec is the natural beauty of the peninsula, the sea, and the islands. It's a place for
relaxation and rejuvenation. No traffic tie-ups. No crowds!

Bangor International

Lubebc is the easternmost town in the United States and is surrounded by the waters of the Bay of Fundy and Cobscook Bay. It is a fantastic area for outdoor activities on the ocean and along the shores for people who want to 'get away from it all.' Downtown Lubec is a village where you can walk to shops and restaurants along quiet streets lined by historic homes.

Golf: There is a 9 hole golf course on Campobello Island, about 10 minutes drive away. It is very scenic but we are not golfers so cannot speak to how challenging it is.
