About the property

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.

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.

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!

Spectacular sunsets with a private, quiet view

  • 4 of 5

This wonderful place is completely furnished with everything one could possibly need. The owners are very friendly and responsive. Although there are nearby dwellings, the views are blocked, so you feel quite private. Much useful information about the area is provided. Since the table really seats two, and so does the couch, I'd suggest that four people would be crowded. I also would not describe the property as having a beach. Yes, it is on the water but getting down to it is not easy. That said I delighted in the deck and the wonderful views from every room, just what I was looking for in a retreat from city life -- every sunset was truly gorgeous but different. Taking advantage in town of the Masonic breakfast and BBQ and the Summer Keys concerts helped me meet some local folks, all of whom were very friendly. You can walk almost everywhere in town. Take advantage of the hiking trails in the area; a visit to Eastport was rewarding, too (the lobster roll at Quoddy Lobster is wonderful - ask for melted butter). Stop by artists' places -- you'll meet even more interesting folks. And don't forget Monica's chocolates, Campobello (passport needed) and the lighthouse. (To get to the East Quoddy Lighthouse (Harbor Headlight) you'll need to be there at low tide.)

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Second time in Lubec, we fell in love with it even more!

My wife and I use HomeAway regularly and while we've always been satisfied with the places that we stay, this little cottage is our favorite. We really enjoyed staying in this place. Plenty of outdoor activities to do and at the same time; we looked forward to coming back home, lighting up the grill, and watching the sun set. The cottage has everything you need. Walking distance to the grocery store and to the town of Lubec. Jim and Sue are such wonderful hosts and we are very thankful for their hospitality. We feel like we had a great vacation and we would love to come back.

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!

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
