About the property

One-of-a-kind views showcasing the natural beauty of Downeast Maine

Imagine breathtaking, unspoiled natural beauty as far as the eye can see that will fill you with a sense of awe and wonder. Imagine a place where you can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and reconnect with nature – a place so magical and unique you’ll long to return. Welcome to the Seaside Sanctuary.

Privately sited on 5 wooded acres with 600’ of granite shoreline, nestled amidst mature spruce and pine trees overlooking a remote peninsula with captivating views of ocean, islands and tides. This special home invites you, your family and friends to share a one-of-a-kind vacation amidst the wilderness beauty of Maine.

Savor coffee on the deck as the mist burns off the water in the warmth of the sun’s rays. Have a seat at the elevated upper granite ledge sitting area with sweeping views of adjacent islands and miles of granite shoreline. Enjoy the warmth of the afternoon sun on the oceanside deck as you settle in for another dazzling sunset. Or, have a seat at the lower granite ledge sitting area and listen to the ocean lapping at your feet. With no other homes in sight -- only pristine natural beauty as far as the eye can see, you’ll quickly understand why the Seaside Sanctuary is your special place to appreciate nature’s splendor.

Built in an era before setbacks from the shore were increased, the close proximity to the water's edge accentuates a feeling of openness and communication with the beauty and solitude of rural coastal Maine. Inside, an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, and walls of oversized windows and sliding glass doors capture stunning views and natural light. Relax and enjoy good company and conversation on the spacious oceanside deck. Observe vibrant sunsets and abundant Maine wildlife (seals, deer, eagles and a variety of bird species.)

Accommodating up to 6 comfortably, the Seaside Sanctuary features a vaulted master suite with private bath and a sitting area with sliding glass doors for a commanding view of ocean and islands. Two additional bedrooms, a second full bath, and a fully stocked kitchen make for a comfortable stay. A grand fieldstone fireplace and living room window seat with expansive views enhance the quaint charm of this unique home.

If you're in the mood for adventure, you can launch kayaks directly from the property with easy access to the water. Included for your use and enjoyment are 3 single person kayaks, 1 ocean kayak and a 2-person canoe. Kayak for miles about the islands rich with Maine wildlife. Paddle amidst pods of curious seals, explore sheltered coves, and observe ancient estuaries. Rent mountain bikes and explore the dirt roads about the coastline of Lubec or Campobello Island, or day hike the Bold Coast Conservation Trail 10 miles away in Cutler.

This lovely seaside retreat is a true sanctuary for the soul and an outdoor haven for those who crave adventure or desire quiet, private solitude. Come enjoy this Down East Maine treasure today and prepare to fall in love. In fact, so many of our guests do, they return year after year.

About Stacey Trubee

We made our first trip to Lubec in June 2013 and knew instantly that this was EXACTLY where we wanted to be. The natural, unspoiled beauty of the area and the gentle, simplicity of life here are a welcome respite from the everyday world. It's a place to unplug, recharge your batteries, and reconnect with family and friends while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Stacey Trubee purchased this house in 2014

Why Stacey Trubee chose Downeast and Acadia

I have always loved nature and the outdoors and the minute we saw this property I knew it was what we had been searching for. The proximity to the water and views from within the home, on the deck, or at various spots around the property foster a strong sense of connection with nature. The enormous tides in the Bay of Funday create an ever-changing landscape that is captivating to watch evolve.

What makes this house unique

Total privacy and seclusion in a wooded setting

Peace and tranquility - no road or other civilization noise, only the wind in the trees and birdsong

Expansive shorefront with many unique nooks and vantage points to enjoy the breathtaking views

Access to the water from the property to launch kayaks/canoe (provided)

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival at this wonderful home we were amazed by the incredible views that grace this house and property! Miles of ocean, islands and wildlife. Just simply breathtaking! Lots of interesting sitting spots on the property. We especially enjoyed morning coffee down the path at the "Point Deck" where the sun comes up over the trees early and the lower ledge at high tide where seals come to visit in the evening. There was NOTHING disappointing about the entire two week experience at the Seaside Sanctuary and our return next summer is already planned. Frank's Dockside, Inn at the Wharf, and Cohills are all must do's for dining in the village. This home exceeded all of our expectations!

Loved it! Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Any day in Lubec, Maine is a beautiful day! We stayed here for two weeks last year, and we just got back from another two-week stay this year. Some days were rainy and chilly (great excuse to stay in and nap/read/watch movies) and others were warm and sunny (perfect for hiking and kayaking). The house itself is comfortable, inviting, beautiful, and plentiful with everything you need for your stay. We spent quite a bit of time outside on the decks and other various seating areas beautifully situated throughout the property. We saw bald eagles, seals, deer, and even a black bear (not in Lubec, but on the drive there from the airport in Bangor). What a relaxing, perfect place to be!

A Must See Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything as advertised. It was a fantastic get away for the entire family. The property owners were available by phone to help with what ever was needed. Saw seals, bald eagles and many other wild life. Looking forward to when we can return to enjoy the Seaside Sanctuary next year. (Kip)

Secluded, Gorgeous Views, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Lubec and stayed for two weeks in this beautiful house in its private setting on the edge of the world. The home is perfectly situated away from other people and your closest friends will quickly become the seals that occupy the cove (they love to follow you around when you're in the kayak). The beauty of the area is appreciated from the large, spacious rooms and picture windows inside the house. Outside, rolling trails take you from the back deck to several areas on the property perfect for relaxing by the sea and taking in the sunrise or sunset. Back inside the house, there is plenty of space to read a book, take a nap, or cook some freshly-caught lobster. The house is generously stocked with everything from extra bedding and towels to cooking supplies to books and movies for rainy evenings. OMG-- we will be back, for sure!!

Lovely Home/Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

Words can hardly describe our stay. A comfortable home, lovely views of the bay, peaceful. We stayed from 9/19-9/29 and wished we could have stayed much longer HERE for our first visit to Maine. We hope to be able to come back sometimes in the future if the home is still being offered. And last but not least the owners were wonderful. Thank You.
