Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at Laughing Raven! The house was clean, well decorated and well appointed! The beach access across the street was a huge-plus. From there you can walk out to the South Lubec Sandbar for some amazing bird watching. West Quoddy Lighthouse is at the end of the street and is a great place to visit and hike. Check the trail maps first if you have kids!! Some are more inland and some are literally on the edge and it can be dangerous. It's definitely worth visiting either way.

A few minutes in the car and you are at the border crossing to Campobello Island NB which is a must-see! From the international park system to the high cliffs, to the beaches there is so much to do. Right from shore you can see whales and seals and if you look up- eagles. I know the eagle sightings don't impress the islanders much, but we Americans just don't get to see them in their natural habitat very often, if at all depending on where you live.

Our hosts could not have been nicer or more accommodating! Alan promptly answered all my questions before we rented and showed up to personally welcome us. We've been vacationing in this area for the last 19 years or so and this has been our favorite place to stay so far. We already look forward to next summer.

Charming Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Laughing Raven. The location was ideal -- across from the beach (you need to walk a short road to get to it), within walking distance of a farm stand, 5 minutes by car to the center of town in one direction, and 5 minutes to the lighthouse and trails in the other direction. The cottage was clean and nicely decorated (we particularly loved the happy red kitchen and the art by Gretchen Mead). We are a couple with a teenage daughter, and the cottage had everything we needed. The wi-fi was fast and the porch was relaxing. Alan was a gracious host who stocked the refrigerator with necessities because we were arriving late; who left a binder full of good suggestions and brochures; and who answered all questions. The only downside I can think of was that the walls were extremely thin between the two bedrooms we used, so if you want to have private conversations that could be an issue. We would definitely return to Laughing Raven again, if we come back to lovely Lubec. I hope we do!

Perfect fit for us!

  • 5 of 5

Our family participated in the first Lubec International Marathon & 10k in June. Lubec hosted a great event and Laughing Raven Cottage proved to be the perfect fit for all 9 of us - 2 grandparents, 4 parents, and 3 adult daughters. The cottage is in a nice central location, was clean and very comfortable...the porch was delightful for breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights, exploring the nearby beach as well as Lubec and Campobello. Alan was very responsive to my email questions and went out of his way to accommodate all our needs (including early arrival). I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a convenient, clean vacation rental.

Great rental property!

  • 4 of 5

I am almost a year overdue in writing this review, but I really wanted to make sure to do it because we rented this house last year over the 4th of July in honor of my mom's 60th birthday. It was a family vacation with my parents, my sister and her fiancee, my husband and I, and two dogs. There was plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed meals on the deck, walks along the road, and trips across the road to the pebble beach to look for sea glass. There was lots to do in and around Lubec - shopping, excellent dinining, sea kayaking, whale watches, a trip to Campobello Island, and I even ran in the Cutler Hartbor 5K on the 4th. We felt right at home in this property and had an excellent stay. Our only (minor) complaints was the listing says it has a hair dryer so we didn't bring one but were able to find one, the washing machine had an odor from being closed up, and it got a bit warm upstairs in the bedrooms and there were not enough fans for all of the bedrooms. Other than that it was a lovely home and we would definitely rent again.

Victorian Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The rental property was spacious enough for 4 adults, very clean and well kept. The owners were gracious and the house had all of the necessities, from the kitchen to the bath. There was wifi service and a phone for any long distance calls. All appliances were in good working order. The description of this property was accurate. We would definitely return to this property and would recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the Lubec area of Maine.
