My girlfriend and I stayed in the Periwinkle Cottage for a week around Labor Day, and had a wonderful time. The cottage was cozy and clean, located on a quiet road not far from downtown Lubec. The large deck was a real plus -- great for sitting out in the sun and listening to the sound of the birds. While not "secluded," we felt we had all the privacy we needed, with neighboring houses visible, but far enough away that we felt neither intrusive nor intruded upon. The kitchen and bathroom were perfectly adequate (good water pressure), and TV/DVD player a nice plus. We found ourselves charmed very much by the area -- not just downtown Lubec, which has good eats (Kippy's, Frank's, etc.), a couple of watering holes (including Annabelle's; recommended!), and an awesome view of the bay with Campabello Island across the bridge, but the surrounding countryside as well. There are dozens of places to hike along the coast and inland, wildlife viewing opportunities galore, and, of course, a lot of very fresh fish to set into. We would definitely go back to Lubec, and happily stay again at the Periwinkle Cottage.
