Great view, quiet spot, house could use some attention

  • 4 of 5

The view is marvelous. The deck is splendid. The house could use a little sprucing up, especially the bathroom. Bring clothes hangers if you want to hang anything up (there were exactly four in the house when I stayed there).

Owner's Response: I am bringing hangers to the house immediately. There were more at one point, I should have noticed that they had dwindled. But as I had not, I appreciate the matter being brought to my attention. I will try to look at the bathroom with a fresh eye. I was so happy with the new medicine cabinet, sink and vanity that I may have overlooked other things. As always I appreciate the suggestions.

Beautiful location on Fundy Bay

  • 5 of 5

The Rocky Cove House is a beautiful quiet spot on Fundy Bay. We had fun using our kayaks and sitting down by the water enjoying the view. The location is close to taking side trips to state parks and Campobello Island. We came back with some delicious Raye's mustards and fantastic chocolates!

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

The house rented out by Bonnie in Lubec is lovely. The view from the back deck is wonderful and the location is great (we love going to West Quoddy Head, only 15 minutes away). Bonnie was very helpful and prompt anytime we had a question or if we needed anything. Thanks Bonnie!

The best vacation I've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

It's always been a dream to go to Maine, and Lubec and this property were exactly what I was hoping for. There are beautiful beaches all around the town, it's quaint, and amazing hiking minutes away. I honestly cannot say enough things, and Bonnie's home is peaceful and cozy. I will definitely be back.

Great View!

Right on the shore of Fundy Bay with beautiful sunrises from the back deck. Easy drive to Lubec and Eastport. Very comfortable cottage.

Perfect spot for exploring the area!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us - great location, large back deck with grill and access to the waterfront through the backyard. Our son spent most of his time down at the water, looking for creatures and sea glass. The owner loaned us her spotting scope which we kept on the deck and used to watch loons, cormorants, a heron, nuthatches, two pileated woodpeckers, and seals in the water. We launched a kayak from the yard for easy paddles around the sound. Fresh lobster and fish was available on the main road just a few miles from the house. There's a great old cemetery nearby and a farmer that sells special varieties of garlic down the road. The internet connection was very good, kitchen well stocked, the grill was clean, and rooms and linens clean and neat. Simple, affordable, and just what we were looking for.

Lubec has bold coastal cliffs, coastal rain forest, wildflower meadows, and several sandy beaches (rare this far Down East). The region is host to three state parks, a national wildlife refuge, and several nature preserves, all of which offer well maintained hiking trails.

Lubec claims the easternmost point of land in the U.S. and is home to the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. In fact, you can see and visit 5 lighthouses within a 10 mile radius of Lubec.

Local whale, wildlife, and puffin tours offer the chance to observe nature up close. Nearby kayak and canoe rental facilities and the many public boat ramps in the area also offer a chance to explore and observe. The area is rich in history-from the first naval battle of the Revolutionary to Maine's own 'Cannery Row' which lined the waterfronts of the Downeast coast. You'll find it all here-rich history, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, and friendly people.

Other Activities: hiking, world-class birding, whale watches, puffin tours, historical tours, museums
