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 purchased this House in 2008
Why Catherine chose Lubec
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.

Great cottage, great location, great scenery! This place has it all. If you're looking to stay in the area, this is the place to consider! Very clean and cute decor. Feels like you're at home. Close to all the fun activities to check out while Downeast. Amazing deck views as well as beautiful gardens and large yard to play in. Hopefully we can make this an annual trip! Well worth it! (Even during a nor'easter)
Yes, my cottage is in a beautiful location and very convenient to all there is to do in Lubec! And Canada is close by, too! I'm so glad you felt at home- I try to make everything as comfortable and well-equipped as possible so you can thoroughly enjoy your stay. I look forward to your return! Sincerely, Catherine
Utterly Perfect In Every Way
Lubec Bay Cottage is, without question, the most comfortably and beautifully appointed vacation rental I've ever enjoyed. Catherine, the owner, thought of every single contingency, and the home is idyllic, serene, gorgeous and cozy. It has the most stunning view, two very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, so many different wonderful places to relax and settle in, a beautiful art studio and any information a guest could possibly need about the surrounding areas. AND Catherine had a basket of local goods, fresh flowers and an anniversary card and cake waiting for us! It was a dream and I'm already planning my next trip back.
Hello Meredith! Thank you again for choosing Lubec Bay Cottage for celebrating your anniversary - it is such a compliment! I'm so glad you enjoyed the cottage and all of its amenities. I especially enjoy sharing my gardens with you - they are a passion of mine.
I look forward to hosting you again in the future! Sincerely, Catherine
From the amenities to the little touches, this is the perfect place for a seaside getaway. The cottage is effortlessly cozy. We enjoyed the deck, the beautiful garden, the use of board games and DVDs ... it was simply perfection!
Hi Kathi and Leigh, Thank you for choosing LBC and your complimentary review. I especially enjoyed your photos posted on my Facebook page! I hope you return to Lubec someday! Best, Catherine
As advertised... clean and quiet
Hi Gerry, Yes I don't want my guests to be at all disappointed ... my cottage is as wonderful as it sounds in my advertised description and photos. Thanks again, Catherine
Peace and quiet
This home was everything it looked like in the listing. From the fresh cut flowers to the little goodie bag and fresh produce left at the door step, it was just stellar. This little town was so peaceful and everyone was so nice, we had a great time. Walked the beach and collected so many rocks and sea glass. Hiked for miles and ate some of the best seafood we’ve ever had. We would highly recommend this home and this town.
Hi Danielle, I try to make my cottage as welcoming and homey as it can be, and describe it true to form in my listing. Why wouldn't I - as you say, it is outstanding! :) And, yes the seafood here is scrumptious; there is so much to do; and the people are so friendly ! I look forward to your return someday! Sincerely, Catherine
Coastal Maine at it's best!
We made our choice to stay at Lubec Bay Cottage back in April, and were not disappointed in the least when we finally arrived and spent our 8 nights this October. The only downside I could see was that the weather was a little too cool to spend enjoying the nice deck and balcony and fire pit like we had envisioned. The cottage is wonderful, rustic, peaceful and cozy! We were so comfortable and felt welcome. The Lubec (and Eastport) areas were great to explore and the locals (and tourists) were friendly. There are so many State Parks, wildlife preserves, forests and shorelines that you wouldn't see (or do them) all in 10 years. And fresh seafood is readily available (and cheaply obtained to cook yourself), with reasonably priced restaurants around. We will be coming back again !
Hi Phil and Debbie, Yes, the area is full of places to hike, photograph, and explore, and my cottage is a wonderful home base to return to after a day of adventure in Lubec, Eastport, or Canada. The people are so friendly here and the seafood is spectacular! I thoroughly enjoyed being your host and look forward to your return in September! Take care, Catherine.
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.
