Notes on Wheelchair Accessibility: I have renovated this house to make the first floor fully wheel chair accessible, with universal design features that are both eye pleasing and comfortable for everyone. There are parts of the existing structure that limit the degree to which I can bring every feature up to the ADA standards for new public buildings, but I have come as close as I can in a private residence. This house is very comfortable and accessible for everyone, including people who use wheel chairs or other mobility devices. If you have concerns or specific requirements, you should contact me to ask for space measurements and features to be sure this house will meet your needs.

Relaxing Week in Lubec
We enjoyed our second week of a Downeast tour at Beach Glass Cottage. It was tailor made for our stay and play week in and around Lubec! The clean and spacious kitchen provided opportunities for us to cook meals before and after hikes around Quoddy Head State Park, whale watching in the bays, and sight seeing on Campobello Island. The chairs by the beach were used to watch the tides, read books, and enjoy morning sunrises with coffee. We enjoyed the second floor bedroom with its large window to enjoy the fresh breezes and the sounds of the shore. The first floor bedroom provided ample space for our teens. With bathrooms on both floors, we have plenty of elbow room. The living room provided comfortable furniture for reading, resting, and entertainment. The washer and dryer will useful for laundry batches. The location was so enjoyable for us. We were close to town, yet it was quiet as we faced the wonderful views. This is the place to rest and relax when you come and visit the Lubec area.
Quiet and comfortable!
We had a wonderful week at beach glass cottage. This is a relaxing, quiet and cozy cottage with a beautiful view. It was so nice to be able to walk across the lawn to walk on the beach. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. Enjoyed exploring the area with its lighthouses, hiking trails and the delicious food served by area restaurants!
Imagine this ...
The paints show a worn-out building, but do not judge a book by its cover. You'll be amazed to look at the interiors and most importantly - the kitchen. :-)
"What is the house like?", you may ask. "Peaceful?" "Serene?"
Hmmm.... Everything! Imagine sleeping under a starlit sky. Do you see where I am going? Imagine waking up to a crimson red sky and with sun and its reflection off of the sea all the way from horizon, uninterrupted. Do you see that? Imagine walking up to the shore right from your bed. Do you feel the sand under your feet?
Well, that's how it was - daily. Not just that - Imagine tides rising and receding; Imagine a dense fog that covers everything you see within hours... I can just brag on and on!
The kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary utensils, even a chef would fall for it! You also have a pressure cooker. :-) Just get your groceries.
Jody - All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better place. This was way over than what we had imagined our stay would be. You rock!
WONDERFUL WEEK AT BEACH GLASS COTTAGE!!!
We just returned from a wonderful week spent at this lovely cottage. From the moment we walked in and an Eagle landed on the waters edge to welcome us to Beach Glass we knew we would have a wonderful week. The cottage is so welcoming, warm, airy with all the windows to see all the wonderful views. The cottage is stocked with everything you can imagine and of very high quality. We enjoyed all the Beach Glass and shells that Jody has on display, her collections is amazing. Everyday the moods of the sky and the ocean was a sight to see. We enjoyed being able to watch the tides come and go, walk on the beach at low tide looking for beach glass and great shells. This is our second trip to Lubec and we enjoyed both times that we visited. The last time we stayed in Moose Squeak also one of Jodys cottages, that cottage was also amazing. Jody does a great job with these rentals and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Beach Glass to anyone, its truly a home away from home. We did a lot of exploring while we were there, Reversing Falls, Eastport, Campobella Island, both light houses, these are all in a days adventure away. We were sad when our week was over, on our way out we were excorted out by and eagle, flying ahead of us at windshield height, as to say Thank-you for visiting. Thank-you Jody for your lovely Cottage it was wonderful, Please visit Lubec and this homey Cottage, you will not be disappointed. Dave & Kathy Brooks, Ripley, NY - Dan & Kris Pothoff, Edinboro, Pa
This was our eighth year at the SummerKeys music program. Lubec is a very special place to relax and to work hard at our music. This, our first stay at Beach Glass Cottage, was absolutely perfect - the best views, most private, most well equipped, most homey, most relaxing place we have rented. The pictures of this house and its views cannot substitute for the experience. I especially liked the constant changes in clouds, tide, fog, wind and rain. Couldn't stop taking pictures. In addition to music classes, and just enjoying the view from the cottage, we managed to cook a few meals in the very well-appointed kitchen, and travel to Eastport, West Quoddy, and our favorite bog walk on Campobello Island. We hope to come back again.
Our family of six thoroughly enjoyed our time at Beach Glass Cottage. The views were nothing but spectacular! Sunrises are gorgeous, and we happened to have a full moon, on a clear night, with high tide! Just lovely! And waking up to look out on the ocean was so refreshing!!!
The kitchen is stocked with high quality cookware, so cooking with the family was great fun! The relaxing breeze while on the deck made even a warm day lovely. Everyone had a cozy place to sleep and space to relax. The amenities are accurately listed, and the cottage is clean and well maintained.
We walked the beach, built sandcastles, walked out to the lighthouse at low tide, and saw crabs, clams, jellyfish, sand dollars. Another adventure out to a different peninsula that appeared at low tide took us out to see seals!
We stayed close by to thoroughly enjoy the vast beach just outside the cottage, and then we ventured to Campobello Island for a day, West Quoddy is great fun at low and high tide, went inland Kayaking, and downtown Lubec is quaint and enjoyable. The restaurants were all delicious.
We would highly recommend Beach Glass Cottage as a place to rest, relax, enjoy some great outdoors and see some truly beautiful views!
Lubec is home to the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, at the easternmost point of land in the contiguous U.S. The Down East area showcases nature at her finest. Whales, eagles, osprey, moose, and bear inhabit the region. During migration season, whales pass close enough to be seen from shore! Local whale and puffin tours provide the opportunity to observe nature up close and personal. Beach roses, wild iris, and beach peas line the pristine shoreline. The area is host to three state parks, two international parks, a national wildlife refuge, and several nature preserves, all of which offer a variety of well maintained hiking trails. The area is rich in history—the first naval battle of the Revolutionary War was fought in nearby Machiasport. Maine's own 'Cannery Row' lined the waterfronts of Lubec and Eastport with sardine canning factories. You'll find it all here—rich history, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, and friendly people. You won't find pollution, crowds, or traffic jams.
