About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3 with fold out cot

The Periwinkle Cottage is a charming cottage in the woods with a lovely ocean view. The Periwinkle Cottage is tucked in the woods above a cove one mile south of the northern tip of Campobello Island and within walking distance of the beautiful East Quoddy Head Harbour Lighthouse and the Head Harbour wharf where working fishing boats dock and Whale Watch Tours take on passengers. The East Quoddy Head Lighthouse is one of the most photographed in the world . At low tide you can walk on the ocean floor to go over to the island the lighthouse sits. The Periwinkle is a 2 room cottage with an expansive deck for bird and whale watching and a lovely view of the Pasaquoddy Bay. Enjoy dining alfresco with eagles and ospreys flying overhead and the sounds of whales feeding in the cove below. Easy, close-up views of whales are frequent in the summer and early fall. This is a private and charming retreat surrounded by trees and Adirondack chairs on the cliff overlooking the water

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was nice to come back to the Island since not being here since I was a little girl. This time I brought my own boys who explored almost every beach on the island. We found sand dollars, sea glass, sea urchins and beautiful shells. Eagles were nesting in the trees near the cottage. We also saw Peregrine, falcon, seals and porpoises and its been lovely to come back. The Periwinkle cottage was perfect and a quiet respite. Thank You

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Periwinkle Cottage. It was great to take a few days to relax and unwind. The cottage is exactly as described and the views were spectacular. We are definitely going to return to Campobello Island!

Periwinckle Cottage, Campobello Island

  • 3 of 5

The Periwinckle cottage is a small camp-like cabin tucked in the woods on the western side of Campobello Island. The view over the bay is directly to the west which allows for spectaculaqr sunsets. The private atmosphere and complete amenities is perfect for the two of us. We have been visiting Campobello almost annually for many years. It's our secret getaway. We're looking forward to staying at the Periwinckle, or one of it's sister cottages again next year
