The Sea Urchin Cottage is on the north end of beautiful Campobello Island, home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's beloved summer home and the museum and International Park which bear his name. Campobello Island is connected by bridge to Lubec, Maine, home of the renowned candy-striped West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, the easternmost point of the United States.
Within walking distance of the picturesque East Quoddy Head Harbor Lighthouse, the Sea Urchin sits on a cliff overlooking a sandy beach steps from your doorstep! With the woods behind the cottage, the Passamaquoddy Bay in front of the cottage, and the cliffs rising up from the beach on each side of the cottage, the Sea Urchin offers unparalleled privacy and seclusion and an unbelievably beautiful view. Whales and Eagles pass by often.
View whales, seals, porpoises, ospreys, eagles, and beautiful sunsets, whimsical sailboats, working fishing boats and huge cargo ships from your dining room table, from the attached deck, or from the screened-in tree house which sleeps three people! Camping pads are provided in the tree house, but you must bring sleeping bags.
Built by a boat builder, the Sea Urchin is compact, but can sleep up to six people inside the cottage.
We have two cottages available to rent side by side, each on their own 3 acres of land. Please inquire.
Have a large family? Rent the Whale of a View and the Sea Urchin next door! Both cottages are private and located on their own private 3 acres. They are connected by a trail along the shore through the woods. There is also a small 1 bedroom cottage located on the property which is private from both of these cottages that is available for overflow crowds for an additional fee. Please inquire.
