I am a retired school teacher, my husband retired from government

we have three children and two grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and a lot of relatives.I have traveled the world because of

my husbands work. Lubec is my favorite place to be.

PAT CASTELLA purchased this cottage in 1991

Why PAT CASTELLA chose Downeast and Acadia

we live in texas and our extended family lives in many different

areas of the country. I always loved Maine and my sister and I

purchased this so that we can all get together. It is close to

a bird sanctuary and walking distance to the water

Grand Mananisland is the view off in the distance You can see the lobster boats gooff in the morning.

my niece has just had a new baby and she will be the first of the

third generation to visit the cottage. We like to sit at the bbq pit

at night , telling stories, listening to the animals

and sometimes

not often you will get a glimpse of the northern lights

foghorns from the lighthouses nearby

you can view grand manan island from the house

The house sits on a hill and you can see beautiful scenery and

birds, wildlife, eagles

occasionally, a bear or a moose might be seen.

It is magical to me. Even when the fog rolls in It is like sitting

in the clouds.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace, quiet and as I have always seen it a place to save your

soul and renew your spirit a slower gentler and kinder way

of life It is like stepping back in time

rumphius cottage is named after the book Miss Rumphius,

a children's story. Walk away from the hustle and bustle

and live surrounded by nature and a town just a few miles

away.The air is sweet and every where you look there is great

beauty. You can step outside and hike. You can sit quietly

and absorb the view.

Soothe your soul.

  • 5 of 5

If serenity is what you are seeking, this is the place to be. Falling asleep to the sound of a gentle foghorn and waking to the most incredible views of the Bay of Fundy,wild irises on the road and eagles overhead, you will experience a little "Heaven on Earth". Don't be deceived by the reasonable price, the cottage is beautiful and well maintained.

City Dwellers Found Mother Nature!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Rumphius Cottage in late July and the weather was just perfect! The cottage was beautiful, completely clean, and had everything we needed for our stay (pots & pans, coffee pot, linens, etc.). There are neighboring houses but not so close that the cottage lacks privacy. The land around the house is beautiful and our dog loved running around and chasing the birds, frogs, and anything else she could find! Grocery store and restaurants are not too far away, and everyone we met was really kind. Be sure to visit Monica's Chocolates! Pat answered all of our questions before we left for our stay, and we could not be happier with our experience!

So beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! We had just gotten married and stayed for ten days as our honeymoon. Pat was so kind and helpful. The property was perfectly clean and set up for us. The ocean views and breeze were lovely, and the cabin was spacious and beautifully decorated. We loved it! I can't say enough how lovely the cottage and the property is. Close to good hiking, the town, the lighthouse park, and lots of fun things to do. And a good price for the quality. A quiet town and restful, relaxing atmosphere. We would stay again and would recommend this place to anyone who wants an enjoyable vacation.
