STUNNING VIEWS, SPECTACULAR WATERFRONT LOCATION ~ SLEEPS 4

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.

No question this is a perfect choice

  • 5 of 5
We're a married couple traveling with our daughter (who was running in the Bay of Fundy Marathon) and 6 year old granddaughter. The two bedrooms were perfect - the queen bed in one and two twins in the other. And TWO bathrooms - almost impossible to find.
The property was just as described - an extremely well equipped kitchen (large enough to easily work in) with a small table perfect for setting up a laptop (Wi-Fi is included). There's a dining room for six with a gas fire place and the living room is large with two couches.
The living room and the master bedroom have floor to ceiling sliding doors allowing a fantastic view of a salt water marsh (home to six Canada Geese) and the ocean and rock bound coast in the distance.
The cottage was very clean and everything worked as it should. There were a couple of chilly nights (it is Maine after all) and the central furnace kept us well warmed. There's no A/C but three of the rooms have heavy duty ceiling fans if needed.
There's a huge deck (with lounges and chairs) and a vast lawn area. The edges of the lawn are bordered by native untrimmed grasses, berry bushes and the like which really make you feel you're not hemmed in by neighbors. Which is why you chose this place in the first place.
Karen, the manager, was more than accommodating. Our trip from the South resulted in being bumped off a number of flights so we weren't really sure how we would get there let alone when. She said to just arrive when we could and if it was in the middle of the night she'd leave a light on so we could get in. It put us at ease knowing someone was looking out for us.
Karen also gave us good tips on watching the Marathon as well as shopping, touring and dining tips.
We only ate out once - at Killian's Irish Pub. Fantastic fish chowder and my favorite Shepherd's Pie. The kid had a really scrumptious burger.
We have no qualms recommending Channel View Cottage. It's a very nice property with a very nice rental agent/manager.
Be sure to take your Passport so you can go sightseeing on Campobello Island in New Brunswick. And the Ganong Chocolate Museum in St. Stephen.

Owner's Response: And the writer did not mention how well his daughter did in her first Marathon! She placed in the top 3! I just want to say that the fireplace is electric not gas and the pub in town is Cohill's (Killian's is a great beer however and I'm pretty sure they serve it at Cohill's).
The owner takes great pride in this property and it is very well kept. I enjoy helping visitors with their vacation to our splendid area. Thanks so much Pete and family! And run Jessica, run!

Lovely spot for nature lovers

  • 5 of 5
I was thrilled to find this cottage was for rent by the new owner. It is in an ideal location for those of us who are enchanted by the rhythms of nature. We could be endlessly entertained simply by watching the landscape transform as the tides rise and fall or the clouds and fog drift across the bay. And then there are the sky shows – sunrise, sunset, and the stars at night! Add to that the waterfowl in the salt ponds on the marsh, plus the nearby beach and other hikes and preserves within a few miles. The earlier reviews citing the immaculate and accommodating nature of the cottage and the property manager were 100% applicable to our stay too, so I won’t repeat them here.

Channel View

  • 5 of 5
It was another great visit at the Channel View Cottage. We had a small flight malfunction which caused our arrival to be 3am and Karen was very accomodating.

The place was immaculant! There is a new flower garden in the back and a lovely area to BBQ should you wish to stay in and cook outside. One of our favorite new additions was the music! We love music and travel with our CDs in the rental car, now there is a player in the house and music filled the rooms.

We golfed four or five times, lots of fun! Be sure to take the ferry to Deer Island and East Port and see the sights. Touring the islands is a wonderful time and there are plenty of shops, restaurants and hiking. Bar Harbour is only a couple of hours and a nice trip as well although "touristy". Arcadia National Park is in Bar Harbour and worth a day trip!

The sunrises from the cottage and the West Quoddy Lighthouse are spectacular and different every single day. I woke most mornings and watched the sun brighten the day. The beach access a block up is a great mornign walk as well.

Overall, we had another great visit at Channel View and are planning next year.
Thank you Karen for being a wonderful host!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5
After a long journey from New York we arrived at Channel View to find an immaculate, warm and inviting home. The house was a perfect size for the two of us, and we thoroughly enjoyed a little time away from the world (cell phone reception is spotty and we had no internet access, which was just what we needed!) The cottage seemed as if it had just been renovated, and could not have been cleaner. The bed in the master bedroom was incredibly comfortable, everything that we could have needed was provided. Views from both the living room and bedroom were spectacular, and our pictures of the sunrise from both our bedroom and from the Quoddy Head lighthouse have left everyone speechless. Despite her unexpected absence Karen ensured that we were well taken care of, and we could not have had a more pleasurable vacation. While our vacation in mid January left our options for heavy duty sightseeing limited, the lighthouse and Campobello island were both beautiful, and having the supermarket a stone's throw away and a well furnished kitchen made relaxing and cooking a pleasure. We would not hestitate to rent this property again! Thank you Karen for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: We always appreciate our guests. To come to Lubec in the off seasons can provide a truly unique and peaceful experience. Our uncluttered life here opens up a new world to visitors. With the incredible access to nature it's no wonder people are left breathless.

I want future guests to understand that we did have an interruption with the internet service and Fairpoint has repaired the problem. We also have internet TV at the cottage now. But you may never turn on the television with all the choices you will have for hiking, walking, beachcombing, bird watching, kayaking, cycling and simply relaxing in our peaceful atmosphere with a good read.

Thank you Cristina!

Channel View Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been visiting the area for the last 5 years. This is our first year at the Channel View Cottage and we are looking forward to next year. The cottage is extremely clean and comfortable and you can not ask for better views. The marsh is practically in the back yard and water birds come in numbers to eat and play in the tide pools.

One of our favorite things to do was sit outside on the porch and watch the sunrise in the morning or gaze at the hundreds of stars in the evening sky.

West Quoddy Head State Park and beach access are just a hop, skip from the cottage and highly recommended. If you love critters, you will enjoy the sites as well.

There are a number of places to go from here. Campobello Island is lovely and has a golf course that is wonderfully exciting. St. Andrews is not that far away and the Al Gonquin resort has a beautiful golf course as well! We did some antique shopping in Calais, Machias and even ventured to Baxter State Park (4 hours) to do some hiking and sight seeing.

Karen was wonderful to work with and a pleasure to meet in person. Thank you Karen for everything. We enjoyed our stay tremendously.

Channel View Cottage is THE first choice

  • 5 of 5
At first glance, the Channel View Cottage appears to be modest. But as soon as one opens the door you are greeted by a floor to ceiling view of the majestic salt marsh and bay, one swoons. The cottage is sited so that the adjoining homes are mostly out of view from that side of the cottage.

Let me say that his is the first time we’ve rented a cottage where I felt perfectly comfortable taking off my shoes and walking barefoot as soon as we opened the door. The place was hospital clean, and completely clear of clutter. The décor was very tasteful, but simple. For all the world, it appeared as if we were the first people to ever rent the cottage, though this is not so. No worn out hand me down furnishings or trite nick knacks. The newly renovated interior gleamed.

Great attention was given to the comfort of renters. The bed linen was crisp, clean, and seemed brand new. Towels the same. Kitchen appliances were spotless and fresh cabinets well stocked with just the right amount of matched dinner ware, pots and pans and glass ware.

The grounds were simple but well maintained. A tidy back yard is margined by a row of natural but low vegetation, ahead of the tidal marsh. At high tide, the marsh fills with pools and channels. Water birds come to feed by the hundreds. When the tide is out, limpid pools remain, forming a lovely foreground for the sea ahead. A long beach is reached by a near by road, and made for wonderful morning walks before breakfast. There a few quaint old apple trees in the yard, and we ate a few of the apples for breakfast, baked into a crisp. We stayed in mid October, so the central heating was a blessing. .

The cottage is very close to West Quaddy Head State Park, and an easy drive to several hiking trails. The walk down to the beach in front of the cottage can be made easily by all but the most infirm. We found some interesting sea glass and some attractive shells down there. One can see local clam diggers working.

The property manager lives right across the street, and dropped in to say hello on the first day, but we saw little of her after that. She made us feel very confident that if we had a problem, she’d be right there. She also kindly left us a small box of locally produced chocolate dipped apricots.

All in all, this is a great place to stay. We plan to come again and again.
