Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Newly constructed in 2014 and located down a private drive, the house features an open-concept living/dining room and a modern kitchen with new appliances as well as a game area in a 6-sided turret on the 700 sq foot first floor. A curved-oak stairway rises to the second floor’s three bedrooms, capable of sleeping 6, and a large bathroom with a small washer/dryer. The master bedroom 6-sided turret area offers breath-taking views of Grand Manan , 6 miles away. Outside, covered porches extend the length of the southern (ocean) and northern (forest) sides of the house, plus an uncovered sun-deck off the ocean-side porch.

Enjoy outstanding oceanfront views either from the house or from the rocky point with small, spruce-lined coves on either side. A 10 minute walk on a forest trail down the island’s eastern shore takes you to Herring Cove Park with its 2 km (1 mile) long beach and 9-hole golf course. Nearly 25 km (15 miles) of hiking trails are available in Herring Cove Park and adjoining Roosevelt/Campobello International Park – a total of over 1,500 hectares (nearly 4,000 acres) of preserved parkland. Enjoy wildlife (eagles, seals, occasional whales and dolphins), island activities (hiking, golfing, kayaking, cycling, Roosevelt Cottage, whale watching), restaurants on the island or in Lubec, Maine, or just relax watching the 22-foot Fundy tides rise and fall..

Due to steep rocky cliffs,leading to our pebble beach, our home may not be suitable for renters with young children .

Perfect week, perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

Our week in the home on ocean side of Campobello Is. was just perfect. The house is everything promised by the owners. Peaceful, isolated and yet near the Roosevelt Park, clean, well-equipped kitchen, first rate linens, and a view to take your breath away. We had beautiful, warm, sunny weather for all but the last two days. We could hear the tide come in and out from the bedroom windows upstairs at night, and see the moon and stars. We had hours of viewing time on the wide porches around the entire house. We watched six bald eagles for over an hour, at dusk fishing for their dinner. One young eagle perched on the rocks in front of the house to devour its catch, while another young eagle sat nearby hoping for a bite. There are plenty of areas to walk nearby, and loads of hiking and carriage trails on the island. There is a grocery store on the island that carries almost everything you might need and the IGA in Lubec, ME is only about 15 minutes away. The border crossing on the bridge was almost no wait at this time of year.The owners were responsive to our requests. Although they do not have internet as of yet, and the cell phone service is spotty, they do have a land line, so a calling card worked well for us. The Community Center allows use of their internet during open hours, which worked fine for us to check e-mails every few days. I did have a few bars on my cell phone on the front porch and over most of the island. We really do plan to come back and use this home as a base to see more of New Brunswick next year.

Great cozy and quiet cottage with incredible sea view

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for some place away from the crowd, this is the place. Great view, very comfy and calm as well as spacious. It accommodated perfectly our group of five. Did I mention the view? The photos don't do it justice.

I recommend sipping your coffee on the cliff in the morning, watching the bald eagles playing hide and seek (more hide than seek). Please be careful, don't fall from the cliffs, that would ruin your trip.

The kitchen has the basics, INCLUDING a lobster pot that can accommodate 4 lobsters (or 5 depending on your Tetris skills).

We would come back anytime.

Suggestions:

-Bigger carpets

-Vacuum cleaner

-Steak knives

Beautiful modern home, with all necessary amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic view, better than the pictures! This is the 5 th time we have stayed on the island and this house was by far our favorite! It is in a very secluded location and the sounds and sites are breath taking.

Very quiet place, beautiful scenery, excellent place to rest from city life.

Whales, seals, and bald eagles can be seen from the porch. Excellent place for a nature enthusiast.

Just as described

  • 4 of 5

The house deserves 5 stars but only giving 4 stars because of VRBO....difficult to work with. We arrived late to fog and mist of the first night. Immediately walking onto the deck, you could smell spruce trees and hear the crashing waves. I knew we would like it. Although there is a house next door, you can't see it. You truly are removed from town. At night, the sky is filled with stars. Because the house was newly built, it is in good shape and clean. The bed was comfortable. The stand up shower worked well. There is plenty of room in all the rooms....not tight anywhere. Kitchen seemed to have the basics....we didn't cook except for breakfast. The owners were very responsive during the whole process. Fundy Drive and Owen Court are gravel so drive slowly as there were ruts on Fundy. We could not access internet from the house but some places on the island have it. As for things to improve: Provide a TV guide of stations. The remote took a long time to figure out and a paper copy would have been much easier to use, A table on the deck might have been nice to put a cup of tea on or to eat out. Install a walkway from the driveway to the front porch....it would create less mess in the house of cinders and wet floors. All in all, it was a great rental. Keep in mind, it does rain there....not beautiful blue skies every day....but during those foggy days, listen for the fog horns. It's the ambience for writers, thinkers and dreamers.

Great summer experience

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay if you like to be close to nature. Panoramic views from the house and porch are simply breathtaking. The house is in very good condition (pictures don't lie) and the owner is very responsive if you need help. We will definitely consider renting it again next year.
