Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the home beautifully situated on the ocean, but I cannot say how much we valued the guidance from the owners. Our kids had a wonderful time on the beach, especially as we received specific directions on where to find the best sand dollars. The kitchen was well- equipt with the standard necessities, but also many spices, and a lobster pot! The town is lovely and we enjoyed the multitude of local restaurants. Border-crossing there is close to enjoyable- the officers engaged in conversation with the children! We were just a quick trip away from Canada and we enjoyed trips to St. Andrews, St. Stephen, and St. John. We had the most amazing whale watch from St. Andrews where there were 2 marine biologists on the ship educating both the adults and children. Don't forget Monica's in Lubec if you love good chocolate! We recommend without reservation :-)

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience with my husband and 2 teen children. We were comfortable, not connected to the world ( which we wanted) and had a fabulous time sea kayaking and walking all over. Everything was pretty much provided, and the views were fantastic for a price we could afford. Thank you

Private ,Beautiul view, Homey, and Very clean.

  • 4 of 5

The Robbinston home was a wonderful vacation for us. It was quiet and the views where beautiful. We saw seals, eagles, hawks, sea birds and of course the hard working lobster fisherman from the front window. There is stairs in the back of the property to take you to the rocky beach. The house was comfortable and homey. It was wonderful after a 12 hour drive to be able to crawl into a fresh lovely bed. We didn't need to take linens ot towels, everything except food was their for you. There is a lot to see in the area, and a lot of wonderful restaurants (the seafood and deserts are amazing!) Cell phone reception is very spotty there, but we didn't mind a bit. It was a place to relax and recharge ourselves. Kuddos to Jim and Sherry

Mainers in another world

  • 5 of 5

We are Mainers who spent a wonderful week on the coast of Maine, Great place for a family get together in a fully equipped house for seven. Beach combing is awesome. The owner is very honest. He thought we did not get a full security refund and sent a check to cover the credit card charge. We got the full refund and ripped up his check. Jim, the owner. is so thoughtful and just wants anyone that stays in his home to have a wonderful time. What more can you ask for?

A Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this quant house right on the St. Croix River and had a lovely time. The house is stocked with hundreds of VHS and DVDs as well as games and puzzles. We were looking for a quiet private place on the water for our vacation away and found this little bit of Heaven. It was so peaceful and we had a beautiful daily view of St. Andrews in New Brunswick, Canada across the river as well as enjoyed the impressive high and low tides right outside. While the household plumbing was stubborn at times it was nothing compared to the fabulous time we had. Ventured to Eastport one evening for yummy lobster and spend a day in Canada. Thanks Jim for allowing us to use your home and answering any question we had along the way.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay in Robbinston. And thanks for choosing to stay at our property. As for the plumbing, as it turned out there *was* indeed a problem. Something failed in a holding tank in the basement. A brand new one was installed this week. Sorry for any inconvenience during your stay but that particular item will not be a problem going forward. We're really glad you got to experience the peace and beauty of Passamaquoddy Bay. -Jim and Sherry
