About the property

Eagles' Rest Has 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6,

Eagles' Rest is a brand new cottage, completed fall of 2015. It sets on 9 acres of ocean front property. Eagles' Rest shares this property with the owners who also have a house on the property. The cottage has 1 king BR with private marble shower, 1 queen BR with 1 queen & 2 twin beds with private bath. Each BR has a built in iron board and wireless port. The kitchen has tile floor and stainless steel appliances with granite countertops and island. There is a full-size dining area, reading/ conversation area in front of stone fireplace and sectional sofa in the TV (42") viewing area. There are a full-size washer and dryer, and wireless and internet service provided. The cottage has a front porch and a rear porch with clear panels, so as not to obstruct the ocean view. The views from inside the cottage are maximized by the large windows. There is a high powered spotting scope in the cottage for our guests to enjoy the many birds, that call the ledges at Eagles' Rest home. The scope will allow the guests to view the seals that sun themselves on the distant rocks, at low tide. The gardens on the property put on an eye-catching display during the summer and fall months. Eagles' Rest is the perfect retreat for the writer, artist, birder, private vacationer or for the family with children who need the outdoor space to run, play and explore.

.PS. Don’t forget your passports so you can enjoy the beautiful island of Campobello, New Brunswick Ca., just minutes from Lubec. It is the home of both the Roosevelt Cottage, where Pres. Roosevelt vacationed, and the East Quoddy Lighthouse.

Review of Eagles Rest-Your Private Ocean Retreat

Denise V


Serenity on Th Bay

Left on Jun 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This brand new, clean and well maintained waterfront home exceeded our expectation. As we opened the door our NYC stress instantly began melting away as we looked out the many magnificent windows. The views of the Coastal Trail at the Quoddy lighthouse, Grand Manan island, Canada, and Carrying Place Cove just to name a few are amazing. The Bay is the backyard....We experienced a week of Serenity at Eagles Rest. The house has 2 bedrooms with comfy beds and 2 beautiful baths. The fireplace is perfect. Everything in this home is new. The location to the Quoddy lighthouse is a 3 minute drive, and to Campobello island in Canada about 15 mins the most. You must stop at Monica's Chocolate shop, in Lubec, were there's more than homemade chocolates. Have a lobster or lobster roll at the Inn at the Wharf, in downtown Lubec. There is an IGA Supermarket a few minutes from the house. We did a lot of exploring of the nearby towns and coves and the best view was right in the backyard!! The 10 hr drive from NYC NY was well worth it.... The very kind owners Rosemary and Ray, paid attention to every detail to make our stay stress free, comfortable and as if we were right at home. Unlike other places, these owners were reachable 24 hrs if needed. I have recommended Eagles Rest, already! A Very Beautiful location! Denise and Min NYC, NY Stayed May 28-June 4, 2016

Lobsters, Lighthouses, and Lubec... OH MY!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What an experience here in Lubec, Maine. Eagles Rest is an amazing place to explore, relax, and reconnect with the ones you love. We drove here from Marietta, Georgia as a gift for my son's high school graduation. We have had an amazing time here laughing, sightseeing, and eating great seafood. Campobello Island was amazing to visit and lots of history there. Eagles Rest is beautiful, spacious, well equipped with anything you may need, cozey, fantastic views throughout the house, and awesome land to explore. We have been to many places as a family, and Eagles Rest is by far the best place we have been to reconnect and enjoy. We will treasure this visit forever..... Will definitely have to come back!

An amazing place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th time coming up to Lubec and have rented various homes on the bold coast. Without a doubt Eagles Rest is the best rental experience we have had so far. The location and amenities exceeded all of our expectations. Once you arrive here you'll see what we mean. Rosemary goes the extra mile to ensure you have everything you need for a memorable vacation. If you want to experience the bold coast is style, this is the place you want to be.

Great Place to Stay for a true Downeast Maine Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently enjoyed a great vacation week at Eagle’s Rest in Lubec, Maine. It was the kind of vacation where you are pleasantly worn out at the end from a wonderful time and sad to be leaving. The house is everything you could want for accommodations. It has a well-stocked kitchen, relaxing seating with a warm fireplace, clean bathrooms, panoramic views from all the living areas and even a viewing scope for watching the seals and other wildlife. The grounds are pleasant for wandering with lovely gardens and a rocky shore to explore. The nights are dark which makes for great star gazing – one evening the Milky Way was clearly visible from the deck of the house. The hosts Rosemary and Ray are friendly, helpful with suggestions for activities if you ask and will ensure your stay is pleasant and problem free.

It is a great central location for launching your day’s adventure in any direction. We hiked to West Quoddy Light with the house as the starting point, toured Campobello Island twice, checked out Lubec (highly recommend the Scallops in Port Wine sauce at Frank’s) and Eastport, and the highlight – took the Bold Coast Charter to Machias Seal Island for their puffin tour. We thoroughly loved our stay and would highly recommend Eagle’s Rest for a fun, relaxing vacation.

Peaceful and beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The rental house is very well maintained and clean. All the towels and bed linens were top notch. We cooked several meals there and there was plenty of cooking supplies. The location was great. So nice to hear the waves and observe the seals through the telescope. Such a great relaxing vacation! The only down side was five of us went so my three teenage to young adult boys had to share a bedroom. There were enough beds, just not much privacy. Even with that, I would definitely return! Missed the ocean the minute we were home! Thank you Rosemary and Ray for giving us this opportunity to stay at your beautiful rental!

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Last week we stayed for three nights in the Eagle’s rest and it was just wonderful. The location on the ocean cannot be topped. We could have spent all of our time right here without getting tired of it. Watching the tides, the birds, the waves, the sunsets and more- it never got old, it was always changing and always beautiful. Out family of four (2 adults 2 teens) has traveled extensively all over the world and this is one of the most spectacular landscapes we have had the pleasure of experiencing.

The house is great, immaculate and well furnished. The décor is beautiful and the attention to detail is impressive. The information on the house and the surrounding areas are clear and plentiful, which was greatly appreciated. We played board games and used the game table provided for a lot of family bonding and fun. We even brought in a lot of our own food from the local IGA so we didn’t have to be far from that view!

This was truly a wonderful experience, and to add icing to the cake we were able to meet both Ray and Rosemary, who were not only friendly and helpful, but shared some interesting history with both my husband and myself. They are amazing hosts and we can’t recommend this property more!
