Lubec cottage description

Lubec Bay Cottage is a classic Maine seaside cottage with fabulous bay views, surrounded by 3 oceanfront acres of bird-friendly organic gardens and lush wildflower meadows in a peaceful, rural setting. Stroll down our Boardwalk to our private shoreside sitting area with fire pit/grill, which is adjacent to the renowned Sand Bar birding marshes.This enchanting cottage is situated in a breathtaking setting with spectacular sunrises and is beautifully furnished with fine antiques and coastal decor; a picture-book Downeast cottage that has kept its original character and charm, while having all the comforts to make you feel at home. Our expansive deck is a wonderful space for grilling, dining, relaxing around the outdoor fireplace, and taking in the view. Close enough for walking to South Lubec beach, our Cottage is less than 2 miles from West Quoddy State Park with Lighthouse and 4 miles from town and Campobello Island with its Roosevelt Park.

Because our cottage is a Maine DEP-certified Environmental Leader implementing environmentally-friendly practices, you will feel safe during your stay. You can freely enjoy our gardens, lawn areas and meadow because they are organically maintained, and you won't have to worry about harsh chemicals because housekeeping only uses GREEN cleaning products.

Along with having an extraordinary cottage with beautiful surroundings we provide special touches that you will only find at Lubec Bay Cottage! Our cottage doesn't feel like a vacation rental - you will feel at home, like family.

We are very pet-friendly! Your pets will love it here. On the property, we have a lovely meadow and lawn area; are adjacent to the sand bar marshes;and are close to the expansive South Lubec beaches. We also supply pet food bowls. Not far away are numerous hiking trails for you and your pet to explore.

Lubec Bay Cottage is a special place you'll look forward to returning to after a day of adventure!


Romantic Getaway:
Lubec Bay Cottage is wonderful for honeymooners or for those celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or searching for a romantic getaway. In the morning, awake to a beautiful sunrise over the bay and sip your morning coffee or tea while relaxing on the balcony. While enjoying your lunch on the deck, watch the bald eagles flying over the bay. In the evenings, enjoy a fire either at the fireplace on the deck or at the shoreside fire pit; listen to the relaxing sounds of a fog horn; enjoy a romantic slow dance to your favorite song under the brilliant night sky. For indoor leisure time, play a game on the small-scale vintage tabletop pool table or choose one of the several popular board games; warm up to the fireplace while watching a movie chosen from our DVD library; read from our library of sea-themed and Maine-authored books. All this without leaving the property!

Artist's Dream:
You don't have to be an artist to enjoy Lubec Bay Cottage! But if you would like to bring your paints, brushes, and canvases for painting while on vacation there is a working studio for your use on the property. The situation is intended to complement the comfortable surroundings with an atmosphere of creativity. The Studio is an early 1900's rustic workshop that has been converted into a working studio with plenty of natural light, several work benches, a French easel with daylight lamp, drying rack, space station and cart, pack stool, designer's drafting table with ergonomic adjustable chair, and print rack. The picturesqueness and natural beauty of Lubec is truly inspiring and you will enjoy the luxury of having your own working studio. We only ask that the equipment not be used for children's play.

Birding Paradise:
Lubec Bay Cottage looks out onto the South Lubec Sand Flats, debatably one of the top ten places to bird in Maine. Migratory shorebird abundance and diversity is among the highest along the eastern U.S. coast. Whether you observe from the deck, the balcony or the shoreside observation area, you won't be disappointed. You may also access the Sand Flats from the property. A number of shorebirds have been spotted including the Short-billed Dowitcher, Black-bellied Plover, White-rumped Sandpiper, Bairds, Least Sandpiper, Dunlin, Semipalmated Plover, and Lesser Yellowlegs. The cottage is a short drive to other Downeast birding locations including Quoddy Head State Park overlooking the Grand Manan Channel, Carrying Place Cove Bog, Boot Head Preserve (notorious for its Spruce Grouse), and Campobello Island. For your use, we keep a copy of an excellent Maine birding resource, 'Maine Birding Trail' in our library.

Writer's Retreat:
Lubec Bay Cottage is extremely comfortable and so peaceful. It encourages inspiration in abundance. This classic, cozy cottage with its surroundings stimulates creativity, feeds your imagination and allows you to concentrate without distraction. It is a wonderful writer's retreat.

Lubec isn't another Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park - it offers all the beauty and adventure of those areas, but without the crowds!

                      Car: Necessary

                      Lubec Bay Cottage is a wonderful place for relaxing after a day of activities. There are so many things to do: Bird at Hamilton Cove or take a Puffin Tour to Machias Seal Island Bold Coast Charter Co. in Cutler. Hike the trails of West Quoddy Head State Park and take along a picnic lunch. Comb South Lubec Beach for treasures; ride a water-taxi to Eastport; Geocach to over 221 caches in Lubec and the surrounding areas. Take a Plein Air Workshop with Michael Chesley Johnson, or rent a kayak or bike or take a whalewatching tour at Lubec's Inn at the Wharf. During migrations, site whales off West Quoddy, just down the road, or off East Quoddy on Campobello Island, Canada, just 4 miles away. Just remember to bring your passport. See seals feeding in Lubec Channel or in the bay behind the cottage. Meet local artists in their galleries or learn the local history at the Lubec Historical Society, McCurdy's Smokehouse and Roosevelt International Park. You must try 'Tea with Eleanor' at the Roosevelt Campobello Park or a round of golf at Campobello's scenic Herring Cove Provincial Park Golf Course.

                      There are also Summerkeys music concerts downtown during the summer months, two chocolatier shops, a wharf for purchasing local seafood, and a great variety of restaurants for eat-in or take out.
