Property description

This is an authentic log home (1900 sf). While the look is rustic, it has all the modern conveniences you’ve come to expect. The entire first floor is handicapped accessible. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything a willing cook will need, while on the deck a gas grill waits for outdoor cooking. Watch a movie or game in the living room, while a sunset displays its beautiful colors just beyond the wall of windows overlooking the ocean. You can take the chill off an evening with a crackling fire in the fireplace. The master suite has a separate TV, private full bath, and optional private entrance. A washer and dryer are located in the half bath down the hall. On the second floor you’ll find two large bedrooms with two full beds in each, as well as a full bath - with tub. A loft with a cozy reading nook completes the upstairs hideaway. There is an ocean view from every room in this house.

Outside you can enjoy the view of the ocean from a rocking chair on the screened porch or the deck. A short 75 foot path makes access to the ocean and private beach easy. Swim on the beach (if you dare to brave the cool waters of Maine), skip rocks, rock hound, bird watch, look for fossils, or use the paddle boat or canoe to explore the quiet cove.

Area attractions include four lighthouses within 15 miles. One of them, picturesque West Quoddy Head Light with its red and white stripes, is the most eastern point in the United States. There are sandy beaches, as well as, bold coastal cliffs. Campobello Island, Canada (passport required) is only a 10 minute drive and well worth the visit. Like Hiking? The Lubec area has three state parks, a national wildlife refuge, and several nature preserves all with trails to see nature at its best. Chartered boat trips are available for viewing whales, seals, eagles, or puffins. And don’t forget the fresh seafood served in local restaurants or available for you to cook back at the ocean getaway.

Your perfect place to rest, relax, and recharge might just be our Ocean Getaway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I was born and grew up in Lubec and always loved the 'not too hot' summers and the clean smell of the salt air. However, jobs there are scarce, so I had to move away to make my living. I met my wife, Diane, in Connecticut and we now live in Georgia. My wife has fallen in love with Maine, too. We return to spend vacations there whenever we can. Howard Reynolds

Why the Owner Chose Lubec:
The 20 acres with over 500 feet of ocean frontage has been in our family for nearly 50 years. Diane & I bought it from my father in 1988. Since then we enjoyed the infrequent picnic here during our visits to my home town. In 2006, we decided to build our retirement home here - so we have built this log home with everything we wanted in OUR HOME. But unfortunately, right now we can only spend a couple of weeks here each year. In 10 years, when we retire, this will change, but for now we can share this beautiful home/property with others who appreciation what Maine has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We spend most of our time on the Deck. We love to have coffee there each morning while we watch the deer and eagles just a short distance away. We also love to have a fire in the fireplace each evening. We love the freshness of the seafood that we can buy inexpensively at local restaurants or at the docks to prepare at home. But mostly we love the solitude and peacefulness of our private cove. There are no other homes within sight of our home, yet we are only 4 miles away from the center of town.
