WALK TO LUBEC'S MOWRY BEACH & BOARDWALK AND DOWNTOWN RESTAURANTS, RETREAT HERE!

Lubec House Rental Photos and Description

Easy Walk To Beach, Lubec Restaurants, Shops, View Of Bay, Artists Welcome!

You will have a kitchen and extra room to spread out. We only rent 1 bedroom of this 3-4 bedroom home. (There is a single bed in the writing room if a second bed is needed). In the afternoon, the downstairs common room is operated as an art gallery so you can also enjoy the original art. We only rent this suite of rooms to one party at a time so there will be no strangers in the house. There is a pleasant backyard with your choice of seating areas to view the Lubec Sparkplug, the international bridge, and the Lubec Channel. Please note the kitchen is on the ground floor and the rest of this unit is on the second floor.

If you are an artist, you can use one of the bedrooms upstairs as a temporary studio space. We encourage long term summer rentals and offer nightly(3 night minimum), weekly, and monthly rates. Consider this lodging if you are a SummerKeys music student or SummerBrushes painting student! We love the area and are happy to share our knowledge and experience with you.

Please ask questions if something about this home or its policies is unclear. This would be a good home base if you are considering purchasing a summer home or relocating to the area.

This listing is only suitable for adults and we do not allow pets. There are no exceptions to this rule so please don't ask.

We do still have available dates in both July 2015 and August 2015 so consider booking now! However, my favorite months are June and September so consider those as well.

We try to provide everything for your comfort including potholders, coffee, coffee filters, teas, space heaters, fans, extra towels, and other items. If anything could be included that is not currently provided, please provide us constructive feedback to us in person and we will try to change the situation as soon as is possible.

About Trina Stephenson

We are artists and operate Friar's Bay Studio Gallery on Campobello Island and the Artists Retreat Studio Gallery in Lubec. We live in the Sedona, AZ area in the winter so we enjoy year round great weather for plein air painting. We also offer plein air painting workshops through SummerBrushes and Paint Campobello.

Trina Stephenson purchased this house in 2012

Why Trina Stephenson chose Lubec

Great downtown location. Walk everywhere and enjoy Summerkeys and Summerbrushes. Nature Conservancy Beach and Boardwalk just a few blocks away called Mowry Beach. You will fall in love with this quiet area of Downeast Maine. Lubec is central to a great deal of publicly owner waterfront with great hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

We have wonderful cliffside chairs in the back yard from which you can see the International Bridge and the Grand Manan Channel and the Lubec Sparkplug. The house is a traditional cape from the 1860's with a very nice floor plan.

House had the bare Essentials

  • 2 of 5
The property was clean and well maintained, but could have have had a few extra things like pot holders. The Lady was very nice, and welcomed us, answered all of our questions. The house suited our needs for while we were here, as we were out and about during the day while her gallery is open. But the time we did spend there wasn't very comfortable, as the house had no television, no radio, no heat, no washer &dryer.

Owner's Response: I have a portable space heater for guest use. Central heat is not needed during the months the rental is available. It was in the 70's and 80's when this guest was in residence in mid August. I informed the guests before they came that there was no washer and dryer and I don't believe this amenity is needed unless someone is spending more time in the area. I offered to do their laundry or they could have used my washer and dryer if it was necessary. A washer and dryer also is not listed as an amenity in the listing so please review the listing before you decide to choose mine or any accommodation to avoid any unrealistic expectations. The property is meant to be a retreat and we do provide high speed wireless internet. There is a small portable radio stored on the shelf in the writing room and 2 silicone pot holders are sitting on the counter in the kitchen. I wish this reviewer had asked me where they were when I was there rather than complain about it after the fact if they could not see them or did not know what they were. Television is not something that I personally own or believe in and again this is supposed to be a retreat from the world. News, weather and email and other forms of entertainment is available via the high speed wireless if you are so inclined. The guests that will be happiest in my accommodation are nature lovers who are coming to enjoy the public lands or artists, musicians or writers who want to use the extra space to do some creative work. Please ask questions if you are my guests. I am always happy to answer any and all questions about what you might expect to do in the area and what you will find in the way of amenities at the Artists Retreat. I answer all inquiries respectfully and in a short time frame. A bad review can be hurtful, and I do not believe this was warranted as the listing is as described. View each guest review on the site with healthy scepticism as I have personally been offered ten percent off my next stay in exchange for a good review. Thank you for considering my accommodation as an informed guest and I would love to host you in Lubec, Maine in 2015!

Roosevelt Campobello International Park across the international bridge less than 1 mile away. Lubec is the easternmost town in the U.S.A., in Washington County, Maine. Wonderful location for the photographer, artist or nature lover. Peaceful and quiet, no traffic lights, no franchises, restaurants with home cooking... Walk the beaches and collect sea glass, rose hips or driftwood. Visit artist studios or enjoy a wonderful hike. Cook lobsters or enjoy a lobster roll while watching the seals in the Lubec Channel cavort. Visit the 3 local scenic lighthouses: East Quoddy, West Quoddy and Mulholland lighthouses. Take a whalle watch or go deep sea fishing. Do some ocean kayaking, write a book or just read a book! Enjoy the peacefulness the area provides. Do not come expecting traffic, lots of nightlife, more restaurant choices than you could possibly ever try. There is a growing music scene here that you might want to investigate, however.
