Overview

Lubec Cottage Rental Photos and Description

NO FEES TO BOOK!

Walk 100 feet from this cozy cottage to your own beach, or step out into the charming streets of Lubec down to the waterfront shops and eateries. Enjoy the remarkable, ever-changing light, and sunsets offered by your panoromic view of Lubec's famous Johnson's Bay. Put your kayak or other small craft into the bay directly from your beach. Or, simply enjoy the wildlife & fishing boats going by from the large rear deck or grass yard. The beach yields abundant sea glass and other treasures you may wish to collect. Ideal for 2, but can sleep 4. The cottage features one bedroom & a living room/kitchen combination, both with sliding glass doors that look out into the bay & open to the deck. Love seat in living room opens to a bed. The kitchen contains all you need to dine in. A small dining area, and a full bath are provided. Lubec is the real deal, a working harbor whose people still 'go down to the sea in ships.' Visit nearby Campobello Island, lighthouses, beaches, hiking trails, other unique towns such as Eastport and Cutler, & pristine lakes.

Also inquire about our Selkie House across the street from the cottage (year-round and long term availability) - Homeaway.com listing #4204649.

Loved Lubec

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Lubec and rented this cottage two weeks ago for our wedding anniversary. The cottage was the perfect size for the two of us...very cute and quaint and the view was spectacular! Linda was accommodating and provided us with information regarding places to eat and visit. Even though the weather was not the best we spent most our time travelling around the area, taking in the most beautiful land/seascapes we have ever seen. But at the end of each day, we always looked forward to coming back to the cozy little cottage! We highly recommend this cottage to those of who are looking for a place to "get away from it all". We hope to come back to Lubec soon and will definately want to stay here again!

GREAT LITTLE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

In some ways I am reluctant to give a great review.This will make it harder to find this house available.The house has everything you will need for a comfortable stay.The view from the rooms or the deck is a million dollar view. There is wifi ,cable tv and proximity to some nice places. Town is an easy walk. Quaddy state park has some great walking paths. Campobello island has equally enticing walking paths of different lengths.Take a boat ride with Downeast charters and see whales,dolphins and eagles. There are some nice restaurants in town.It is a much slower pace in an awesome setting.We will definitely go backJim and Sue were always available for any questions.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lovely cottage in late October with my 2 dogs. Not only were the hosts super dog friendly and accommodating, the cottage itself was perfect albeit small. The view was more than hoped for and the supplies perfect for what I wanted. I am in love with Lubec and hope to move there someday. I definitely will be back. Thanks for the amazing memories!

A little jewel

  • 5 of 5

Northern Lights is a lovely little cottage! We went to Lubec on vacation with my husband's family. They have been going to Lubec for about 10 years. When his aunt came over and went to the back yard she said, "This is a million dollar view". The pictures we have of Johnson's Bay at sunset are beautiful. It was the perfect size for us and suited our needs. We were blessed with lovely weather. Loved having my coffee on the deck. You can walk to Uncle Kippy's restaurant - well just cross the street really, and walk to the IGA and into town. Jim and Sue were a pleasure to work with. Prompt in returning emails and gave us lots of suggestions for activities. We are looking forward to our return this summer.

Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage by the sea. My husband and I fell in love with Lubec and its quiet unpretentious charm. We spent many nights just sitting on the deck overlooking the water and enjoying the amazing sunsets. Very friendly people everywhere we went - LOTS to see and do in the area. If you like hiking, lighthouses and seafood, this is the place for you. Very clean and cozy cottage - perfect size for two people. Jim & Sue are very friendly and have lots of tips about the area. We plan on making this trip again soon!!

Lubec, the easternmost town in the United States has a working waterfront. It is small and very quiet - no big city malls, no traffic, no pollution, no crowds - just a pleasant destination to visit and relax. Lubec has hosted the SummerKeys musical programs since 1992 and will return in June. Enjoy its free weekly concerts. You can enjoy listening to the musicians playing their instruments on the streets of the village or watch local artists with the brushes and canvas capture the beauty of Lubec. Visit our lighthouses, bogs, state parks, hiking trails and take long walks on a rocky beach. Vist Campobello Island - Franklin D. Roosevelt's 'beloved island' - go whale watching, birding, hiking, golfing, and much more. This is truly Maine - the way life should be.

Other Activities: private beach at cottage depending on the tides. Local area lighthouses, Campobello Island 3 minute drive from cottage
