Lubec Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms (queen & 2 twins), 2 full baths, cooks kitchen, living & dining rooms
Channel View Cottage is a newly renovated (feels brand new inside) waterfront - the property is adjacent to a bird sanctuary and a lovely sandy beach is a short stroll away. This home features two bedrooms (1 queen and 2 twin beds), two full baths, a fully equipped cook’s kitchen with professional appliances, a formal dining room, and a comfortable and spacious living room. A large deck links the cottage to a charming art studio. The house is newly furnished and there are spectacular views from every room. Comfortable cotton linens and towels are provided. The cottage is conveniently located on the salt water near the West Quoddy Head Light . The Roosevelt International Park on Campobello Island is just a few minutes away, as are miles of spectacular coastal trails. The property is adjacent to a bird sanctuary and a lovely sandy beach is a short stroll away. Hiking and kayaking in the area provide the opportunity to enjoy the unique vistas of the area.
NATURE: This serene cottage is just a short stroll away from beautiful South Lubec Beach. The beach is wide and sandy and is known for its birdwatching as it is on the Eastern Migratory Pathway. A State of Maine Land Preservation area is behind the cottage and along the beach, making it an exceptionally viable place to watch migrating warblers, sparrows and shore birds.
Hiking trails abound in the area and you will not be disappointed with the 97 miles of shoreline in Lubec. Dramatic cliffs, sandy coves, several long beaches and spectacular sunrises will be a few of your vistas along with eagle sightings, seals and possibly whales depending on the time of year (July to October are the best times to see whales). Minke, Finback, Humpback and even the rare Right Whale visit our Atlantic waters.
ART & MUSIC: The area is unique and the last stretch of undeveloped coastline on the East Coast. Artists appreciate the area for its solitude and fascinating shifts of light. Music, art and photography workshops are offered in the summer. Summerkeys, a music school, offers excellent free concerts weekly in the summer. Your nearest neighbor to this privately situated cottage is a charming art gallery and studio.
REST & RELAXATION: There are no traffic lights in Lubec and really, no 'traffic' as we know it in the modern world. You will be swept away by the other world feeling of Lubec (we are often known as 'the other Maine'). The fog, the light, the quiet all give way to a sense of tranquility. Whether you come to explore for the week, write or read we think you will find Lubec to be the perfect interlude in a busy world.
