Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Balcony, Fire Pit, Shoreside Sitting Area, Sleeps 5

Lubec Bay Cottage is a picture-perfect Maine seaside cottage with fabulous bay views, surrounded by 3 oceanfront acres of bird-friendly organic gardens and lush wildflower meadows in a peaceful, rural setting. Stroll down our Boardwalk to our private shoreside sitting area with fire pit/grill, which is adjacent to the renowned Sand Bar birding marshes. This enchanting cottage is situated in a breathtaking setting with spectacular sunrises and is beautifully furnished with fine antiques and coastal decor; a picture-book Downeast cottage that has kept its original character and charm, while having all the comforts to make you feel at home. Our expansive 400 square foot outdoor living area is a wonderful space for grilling, dining, relaxing around the outdoor fireplace, and taking in the views on our cozy swing. With a balcony just off the master bedroom, you have a bird's eye, 180-degree view of the ocean and can see the Spark Plug lighthouse and Campobello, Canada! Close enough for walking to South Lubec beach, our Cottage is less than 2 miles from West Quoddy Head State Park with Lighthouse and 4 miles from town and Campobello Island with its Roosevelt Park and East Quoddy Lighthouse.

Because our cottage is a Maine DEP-certified Environmental Leader implementing environmentally-friendly practices, you will feel safe during your stay. You can freely enjoy our gardens, lawn areas and meadow because they are organically maintained, and you won't have to worry about harsh chemicals because housekeeping only uses GREEN cleaning products.

Along with having an extraordinary cottage with beautiful surroundings we provide special touches that you will only find at Lubec Bay Cottage! Our cottage doesn't feel like a vacation rental - you will feel at home, like family.

We are very pet-friendly! Your pets will love it here. On the property, we have a lovely meadow and lawn area; are adjacent to the sand bar marshes; and are close to the expansive South Lubec beaches. We also supply pet food bowls. Not far away are numerous hiking trails for you and your pet to explore.

Lubec Bay Cottage is a special place you'll look forward to returning to after a day of adventure!

Romantic Getaway:

Lubec Bay Cottage is wonderful for honeymooners or for those celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or searching for a romantic getaway. In the morning, awake to a beautiful sunrise over the bay and sip your morning coffee or tea while relaxing on the balcony. While enjoying your lunch on the deck, watch the bald eagles flying over the bay. In the evenings, enjoy a fire either at the fireplace on the deck or at the shoreside fire pit; listen to the relaxing sounds of a fog horn; enjoy a romantic slow dance to your favorite song under the brilliant night sky. For indoor leisure time, play a game on the small-scale vintage tabletop pool table or choose one of the several popular board games; warm up to the fireplace while watching a movie chosen from our DVD library; read from our library of sea-themed and Maine-authored books. All this without leaving the property!

Artist's Dream:

You don't have to be an artist to enjoy Lubec Bay Cottage! But if you would like to bring your paints, brushes, and canvases for painting while on vacation there is a working studio for your use on the property. The situation is intended to complement the comfortable surroundings with an atmosphere of creativity. The Studio is an early 1900's rustic workshop that has been converted into a working studio with plenty of natural light, several work benches, a French easel with daylight lamp, drying rack, space station and cart, pack stool, designer's drafting table with ergonomic adjustable chair, and print rack. The picturesqueness and natural beauty of Lubec is truly inspiring and you will enjoy the luxury of having your own working studio. We only ask that the equipment not be used for children's play.

Birding Paradise:

Lubec Bay Cottage looks out onto the South Lubec Sand Flats, debatably one of the top ten places to bird in Maine. Migratory shorebird abundance and diversity is among the highest along the eastern U.S. coast. Whether you observe from the deck, the balcony or the shoreside observation area, you won't be disappointed. You may also access the Sand Flats from the property. A number of shorebirds have been spotted including the Short-billed Dowitcher, Black-bellied Plover, White-rumped Sandpiper, Bairds, Least Sandpiper, Dunlin, Semipalmated Plover, and Lesser Yellowlegs. The cottage is a short drive to other Downeast birding locations including Quoddy Head State Park overlooking the Grand Manan Channel, Carrying Place Cove Bog, Boot Head Preserve (notorious for its Spruce Grouse), and Campobello Island. For your use, we keep a copy of an excellent Maine birding resource, 'Maine Birding Trail' in our library.

Writer's Retreat:

Lubec Bay Cottage is extremely comfortable and so peaceful. It encourages inspiration in abundance. This classic, cozy cottage with its surroundings stimulates creativity, feeds your imagination and allows you to concentrate without distraction. It is a wonderful writer's retreat.

Lubec isn't another Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park - it offers all the beauty and adventure of those areas, but without the crowds!

About Catherine Mettey

Taking care of my Lubec cottage and guests and spending time in my gardens are my passions. Many of my guests return year after year because they miss Lubec, love the cottage, and trust that their time here will be as wonderful as it was during their previous stay. If you are considering a Lubec vacation, I'm certain that you would enjoy a stay at Lubec Bay Cottage.

Catherine Mettey purchased this house in 2008

Why Catherine Mettey chose Downeast and Acadia

Lubec reminds me of coastal Maine when I was a child - simple and carefree with beautiful scenery, plenty of things to explore, mouthwatering seafood, and friendly people. I have always had a picture in my mind of what my perfect Maine seaside cottage would look like - Lubec Bay Cottage is my dream that has become a reality.

What makes this house unique

I provide many special touches in hopes that you will feel right at home and have what you need to make your vacation wonderful. I want to make sure it's right for you. If you are celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or holiday during your stay please let me help with planning your special occasion! I look forward to hearing from you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was only a brief visit to the cottage, but so memorable. My artist friends and I painted in the mist and in bright sun. I especially enjoyed painting a panoramic view from the balcony outside my bedroom of the meadow and marshy area leading to the water . I was up at 4am just to see the starry sky and wished that I could have somehow captured the sight on my camera. I did catch the sunrise from its first glimmer to the last glow. I took a dozen photos of the cottage interior while the sunrise lit its absolutely charming interior in a yellow hue.



It is a vacation filled with memories that will stay with me for a very long time. Thank you Catherine, for everything. Carol

Lubec Bay Cottage is a wonderful place for relaxing after a day of activities. There are so many things to do: Bird at Hamilton Cove or take a Puffin Tour to Machias Seal Island Bold Coast Charter Co. in Cutler. Hike the trails of West Quoddy Head State Park and take along a picnic lunch. Comb South Lubec Beach for treasures; ride a water-taxi to Eastport; Geocach to over 221 caches in Lubec and the surrounding areas. Take a Plein Air Workshop with Michael Chesley Johnson, or rent a kayak or bike or take a whalewatching tour at Lubec's Inn at the Wharf. During migrations, site whales off West Quoddy, just down the road, or off East Quoddy on Campobello Island, Canada, just 4 miles away. Just remember to bring your passport. See seals feeding in Lubec Channel or in the bay behind the cottage. Meet local artists in their galleries or learn the local history at the Lubec Historical Society, McCurdy's Smokehouse and Roosevelt International Park. You must try 'Tea with Eleanor' at the Roosevelt Campobello Park or a round of golf at Campobello's scenic Herring Cove Provincial Park Golf Course.

There are also Summerkeys music concerts downtown during the summer months, two chocolatier shops, a wharf for purchasing local seafood, and a great variety of restaurants for eat-in or take out.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was great and the owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Catherine's pride for her house is evident the second you walk in. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast one morning using the ingredients she left us in a gift basket. When the fog lifted we were met with a beautiful view of the bay. It even made washing dishes enjoyable. Stairs were very steep and there is no downstairs bedroom so keep in mind if you have mobility isssues. Comfortable and plenty of room for the four of us. The only thing I would make note of is at this time of year we found out that the season is over and pretty much all the shops and restaurants were closed in Lubec and even across the border in New Brunswick.

Owner's Response: Hello Barbara, My goal is to make my cottage as comfortable and welcoming as I can - to make it feel like your home instead of a rental cottage. Yes, the stairs are steep for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs or for young children. After October 15 some of the shops and restaurants do close or reduce their hours, but others stay open all year. It is a quiet time of the year, but there is plenty to do if you enjoy the outdoors and natural beauty of Lubec. Thank you for choosing Lubec Bay Cottage. Sincerely, Catherine.

Super unique, everything 4 Texans looking for a Maine Autumn experience could want for!

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed; we were able to cook comfortably and relax outside/ inside. We did so much exploring didn’t need tv. We saw seals, eagles, bought fresh local lobster and cooked at home, went clamming and cooked chowder. So close to lots of amazing parks, lighthouses, endless options.

felt like we packed-in as much as we could outdoors and still really loved coming back to the cottage.

Owner's Response: Hi Lauren, Thank you so much for your complimentary review. I've received many compliments on how well-equipped the kitchen is! It has everything you would have at home - not like other rentals that don't even include the bare essentials. Yes, the cottage is centrally located to so many activities and it's a wonderful, cozy place to return to after a day of adventure! That's why my guests return year after year! Best wishes, Catherine

Fantastic place to stay -you will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the property- it is very well appointed and it seems as though the owner has thought of every little detail that would make guests more comfortable. There is nothing negative to say about this place! When we have the opportunity to visit the area again (which is really gorgeous) we will not hesitate to try and reserve this again. Thank you Catherine for your awesome creativity and allowing us to stay at this beautiful home! :)

Sunshine and Songbirds at Lubec Bay Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beauty, quiet, solitude, and ease of use were the hallmarks of our stay at Lubec Bay Cottage. The cottage is roomy and comfortable with a charming seashore decor and lots of windows to let in the glorious sunshine. The whole house is completely stocked, indoors and outdoors, for the comfort and enjoyment of guests. The large back deck has a patio table with comfy chairs, porch swing, and a Song Sparrow singing its sweet music. The balcony off the master bedroom looks out over the beautiful shoreline. Imagine waking up to a full view of the ocean and spectacular sunrises through the glass patio doors. The large kitchen and dining area also have views of the ocean. You supply the food - everything else you need to prepare a meal is there.

The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. We arrived to find a gift bag full of local products such as yummy jam and sweet smelling soap. We had very good communication with the owner. She even called us after a couple of days to see if we needed anything. Our full deposit was refunded promptly. We appreciated the clear, detailed instructions about what we should do before we left the cottage - where to put the trash, which specific lights to leave on, etc.

Lubec Bay Cottage was the perfect site for us birdwatchers. We walked down “our” private boardwalk to the shoreside behind the cottage and relaxed in the Adirondack chairs with binoculars. We saw Common Yellowthroats, Bobolinks, Yellow Warblers, Song Sparrows, and a Golden Eagle among others.

We enjoyed birdwatching, good food, & listening to the locals at the FIsherman’s Wharf Restaurant and Seafood. We saw several warblers on a stroll along the Mowry Beach Boardwalk in Lubec. Capt. Ralph of Downeast Charter Boat Tours took us out on the bays and showed us seabirds, bald eagles, seals, porpoises, and local folks digging for clams and harvesting periwinkles (a local delicacy). And, what an incredible sight to see when the tide changes in the Lubec area - it varies between 19-29 feet!

We spent a day exploring Campobello Island. Be sure to visit the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, including the homes and the numerous trails that wind through varying habitats. At the opposite end of the island stands the East Quoddy Lighthouse. We were the first tourists of the season to walk across the beach to the lighthouse that is only accessible for a short time during the low tide.

Lubec Bay Cottage was our beautiful, cozy home base. Thanks Catherine!

Owner's Response: Hello Julie, Lubec is known for its birding opportunities and our cottage is adjacent to the South Lubec Sand Bar, which is renowned for its migrating birds. Eagles frequent the shoreline behind the cottage and a variety of birds enjoy our organic gardens and meadows that surround the cottage. Yes, I fully equip my cottage to meet all of my guests needs - it's a wonderful home base to return to after a day of adventure! Thank you for choosing Lubec Bay Cottage. Sincerely, Catherine

They Thought Of Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We saw Catherine's place on line; it was only the second place we looked at and looked no further. Love at first sight, and just from the pictures.

The location is perfect, the areas are spacious and cozy at the same time, the unit is well-equipped in the kitchen and the bedrooms; they even provide the extra-large capacity washer and dryer with their own homemade laundry detergent. We'd planned to do some exploring in the area, and we did, but some days we just settled in with a hot tea and relaxed.

We're both chefs, and were impressed with the quality of the kitchen tools and appliances. Roomy fridge, gas stove, toaster oven, razor-sharp knives, coffee grinder (that's better than our own!), even a food processor. We ate in more often than we dined out.

The living room is equipped with a 44" flat-screen TV and, while there's no cable access (we didn't miss THAT!), the DVD library is well-stocked with a thoughtful array of movies including a vintage film from the early 1960s called "Sunrise at Campobello" which featured nearby Campobello Island. That one in particular, filmed on location and based on a true story, gave us a far more intimate appreciation for the history of the area. The sofa and easy chair were so luxuriously comfortable, we're looking for similar models here at home!

Situated a few miles down South Lubec Road, we might have seen or heard five vehicles pass by each day, so serene was our solitude. Sunrise came right outside our bedroom window and was brilliant each morning. The hanging bench on the back deck was a favorite spot; we could spend a restful hour just staring at the horizon, watching the boats steam by.

We didn't use the artist's studio, but any artist I know would enter that shed and never want to leave. Plenty of natural light, room to move around, tools for the work space, and there's even a small[ bed in the corner for those night burning the midnight oil.

Catherine places great attention on the environment and uses sustainable practices and products. We were happy to see a greater focus on recycling than in our own home state, and little notices placed tastefully and discreetly reminded us to be responsible in the use and disposal of this and that.

Catherine called us a few days in to ensure that we wanted for nothing, and the local caretaker also checked in to see if we needed any light cleaning done. We didn't, but appreciated the thoughtfulness. Professional.

So relaxing here. We'll be back.
