Enjoy the ever changing views of the 20 foot tides, only 230 feet from the house. From the dining room table you will see seals at play in the current and the local fishing boats coming in with the day’s catch. This home has been completely refurbished and is decorated with charming period furniture. The house brings back memories of Lubec’s waterfront history, as do Lubec’s main streets lined with Victorian homes. Shops, restaurants, library, and boat landing are a short stroll from the front door. Lubec's public beach is just a short walk from the cottage. After a busy day exploring, what could be better than curling up with a good book by the cozy living room stove while the foghorns sound in the channel? If you are unfamiliar with the art of cooking lobster and steamers, the owners will order, deliver, and cook your lobsters, steamers, and mussels for you right at the cottage. And they'll show you how to shell and eat them 'Way Down East' style. Fun & relaxing after a busy day!
I could not have picked a more perfect location to spend my vacation. Lubec teems with serenity. Owners, Gary and Pat, could not have been nicer. Always available to answer questions. I bought the lobsters and Gary showed me how to cook them! Such a fun time. The views from Campobello Island were amazing! I had planned to read several books but found myself mesmerized by the seals, the gulls and the water. A very relaxing time. I truly did not want to leave. I was delighted when my flight home was delayed for 2.5 hours -- more time to spend in Lubec!
A perfect location for exploring this magical corner of America! Quiet, very clean, and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Our daughter enjoyed riding her bike, walking the beach, and making new friends so much that she didn't want to leave. I loved unwinding on the deck and enjoying the birds and seals. Campobello Island is just over the bridge and West Quoddy State Park is a must see. Thanks again Pat and Gary and hope to see you soon!
Never had a vacation as relaxing and enjoyable as this! Owners Pat and Gary live close by and gave us all the information needed to soak up the ambiance of this charming village. Campbell Island is a short walk over the bridge with great beaches, the Roosevelt Cottage and an extensive biking/running dirt road system. You won't regret staying there. It's clean, cozy and affordable. We can't wait to return in 2016.
This was the second time that my wife and I stayed at Fisherman's Cottage and we loved it both times. The house is very clean and comfortable and has a good layout, especially cozy with the gas fireplace for cooler nights. The location is perfect for exploring the village and the surrounding coastline, with Mowry beach and its abundance of wild roses almost at your doorstep. And the owners are incredibly nice, friendly people who are a joy to talk to. We are already looking forward to our next trip down east!
We could not have asked for a more charming place to stay in Lubec. From the time we arrived until we tearfully left a week later, we were continually delighted not only by the cottage but also by Lubec and the surrounding area. The cottage is comfortable, well-maintained, and more than adequate for three adults. The bonus of Pat and Gary (the owners) and Daisy dog made the cottage more like home than a rental. Pat and Gary answered our questions and then went about their lives -- leaving us to decide how we wanted to spend our time. Visits of Cohill's, Water Street Inn, and Frank's proved to be good choices for meals and Annabell's for an after dinner drink was a slice of local color! Our options included hikes, exploring the beaches, visiting Campobello Island, and blueberry picking all added to a rapidly building memory bank! We would visit again in a heartbeat.
From the moment we arrived until we tearfully left, we were enchanted by the special place that Lubec is. And, Fisherman's Cottage is the ideal place for a small group to stay. The cottage was exactly as described -- no surprises! It was comfortable and well maintained and being able to pick vegetables from the garden was a bonus!
We had great weather, met and talked with great people,walked and hiked, searched for whales, saw an eagle and her nestling, ate our way through a significant amount of seafood, and relished the memories we were making. We even met a woman who invited us to come pick wild Maine blueberries from her low lying plants, as she had too many! Thank goodness we have digital cameras, as we would not have been able to afford to develop photos the old fashioned way.
We enjoyed the Summer Keys concert and only missed the Thursday barbeque because we wanted to try the Water Street Inn -- having already fallen in love with Cohill's Inn, where we went back another night to listen with great enjoyment to a Country/Bluegrass concert!
One week was clearly not long enough. Our week was a twenty on a ten point scale! We look forward to two weeks or more in Lubec at the Fisherman's Cottage!
Lubec is about as 'Down East' as you can get. It is the easternmost town in the U.S. and home to the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. Whales, porpoises, eagles, osprey, moose and bear inhabit the region. Beach roses, wild iris, and beach peas line the pristine shoreline. In Lubec you will find sandy beaches (a rarity this far Down East), bold coastal cliffs, and wildflower meadows.
The Lubec area is host to three state parks, four lighthouses, a national wildlife refuge, and several nature preserves, all of which offer a variety of well-maintained hiking trails. Local whale, wildlife, and puffin tours offer the chance to observe nature up close from the water, as do local kayak and canoe rental facilities and many public boat ramps. There is a golf course and fresh water swimming near by. You'll find it all here: rich history, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, and friendly people. You won't find pollution, crowds, traffic jams, or glitzy souvenir shops.
Other Activities: 4 lighthouses within 15 miles, state and national parks, wildlife refuge, world class birding
