Lubec house description

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 (harbor 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. Three 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.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2014

          About the owner: 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.

          Why the Owner Chose Lubec:
          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.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          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)
