Eastport condo description
Eastport, the easternmost city in the U.S., is an island community with a rich tradition and a bright future. There is so much to say about our wonderful vacation haven, we'll just share this feedback from former guests with you:
'The Tide Watcher Rental Condo at The Commons has been a wonderful haven. The cares and worries of life seem to go out with the tide and to melt into the moonlight on the water. Tension drips from the tips of my fingers and I feel lighter. Watching the boats come and go from the harbor, reading Sarah Graves, and napping all feel so luxurious; slowing the pace to organic rhythms. Your thoughtfulness in preparing this place for your visitors has made me feel cared for in every way.' Mary, November 2010
'It's almost like both time and Nature have stood still waiting to be noticed and embraced!' Chris and Ben, April 2011
'The combination of the beauty and comfort of the Tidewatcher Rental Condo, and the magic of Eastport will make an unforgettable impression on you!'
High summer honeymoon: August 2012, Barbara and Dave on their honeymoon:
'We want you to know what a wonderful time we had in Eastport, especially at The Commons. Dave and I could not wish for a more perfect beginning for our marriage! The rooms were divine; you ladies have thought of everything and done the condo with panache, to say nothing of our view! Dave saw a whale just out from the deck the morning we left.
And thank you too for the whale watching adventure – we have lots of pictures to add to our collection. Everyone we met in Eastport was so friendly and helpful. We intentionally stopped in [another coastal town] on our way to Portland Airport – and we are so glad we chose to spend all week in Eastport with the peaceful, small community flavor.
Thank you for all the memories. You have done so much for the beautiful town of Eastport – we tell all our friends about you! We’ll be back!'
September, the new summer month!: September 2010, Judy and Wayne:
'Have to tell you – we really enjoyed our stay in Tide Watcher. Your well-equipped kitchen was greatly appreciated and really put to good use. We certainly had our fill of lobsters and steamers.
I am so glad to have had the opportunity to get to know you all better. You make a great team! I was also glad that we were able to stay for 'Paint Eastport Day.' I was really enjoying the challenge of painting outside – then the rain came! Never would have completed those three lil’ paintings without your help. Thank you for allowing me to take over your back deck – and – providing a table too. You saved the day!
We are still salivating over those smoked salmon sticks! Have never had anything like them before. Delicious!! So thoughtful of you to remember the 'starving artist' and her 'instructor' on the back porch.
We look forward to returning to Eastport again next year. Thanks again for everything.'
Not only in summer, March 2012, Shirley and Gerry:
'We returned to The Commons to experience Eastport in yet another season. What better place to experience the transition from winter to spring than from this unique enclave above the sea, with its ever-changing views and spectacular panoramas! The comfort and convenience of The Commons (nothing has been forgotten!) allowed us to spend more time doing the things we enjoy here in Eastport. This idyllic place is not to be missed in any or every season!
Thanks again to the Women of The Commons for another wonderful stay! Please continue to offer this idyllic retreat to those lucky enough to discover it!'

- Eastport is the Easternmost CIty in the United States, located on Moose Island on the edge of the pristine Passamaquoddy Bay. We enjoy the dramatic tides, the starry nights, the first views of sunrise and moonrise, and a strong connection with nature and community. You can dine in more than a dozen restaurants, take a guided kayak trip around the Bay, go hiking in a local state park, or simply enjoy the solid comfort of our elegantly-furnished suites. Bring your passports so you can go to Canada by ferry or car and make it a two-nation vacation. The breathtaking views of nearby Campobello Island and Deer Island, New Brunswick, and their islet neighbors, will inspire even non-painters. Seasonal car ferries (late June to early September) make it easy to visit all of the Quoddy Loop. Eastport offers as much, or as little, activity as you wish. You can hike, go beach combing or whale watching, dine at one of our fine restaurants, or stroll to the local lobster pound for an award-winning, made-to-order lobster roll. We are home to poets, painters, writers, musicians, actors, quilters, dreamers and lovers of nature. Many of our residents fell in love with our magical town after discovering it on vacation - so beware, you might never want to leave ... You will be happy here....moreless

Fantastic sunrise/sunset views, walk to great dining, neat shops, quiet......simply outstanding. Almost hate to tell others of this gem for fear we will not be able to get another booking. The folks who rent this place are great, ever so helpful. This is the real Maine, with whales, great seafood, little shops and galleries, but not the tourist type tacky places in the overly commercial areas of Maine. I have traveled the world and this property is truly outstanding..........

Year Purchased: 2003
About: Four partners own and manage The Commons. We have a gallery of local art and artisan work on the first floor, and two fully-furnished rental condos on the second floor. We opened our doors on May 1, 2004 and are open year-round.
When it came on the market in late summer 2003, we acquired it in order to keep it in caring, local hands. We are very glad we made the decision to buy this historic 1887 building; we are open year-round to serve fellow residents as well as visitors.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
In addition to being right on the shore of Passamaquoddy Bay, you are at the center of Eastport's Historic District, just steps from restaurants, galleries, shops and the library. We have furnished these condos with everything you could want for a carefree vacation.
