Property description

The Whale of a View Cottage is nestled in the woods sitting directly above the Passamaquoddy Bay. Located on Campobello Island, home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Summer home and International Park, the cottage offers spectacular and close-up views of whales, eagles, seals, porpoises, ospreys and other wildlife from the house or the beautiful screened in Gazebo atop a cliff overlooking the water. Enjoy sunbathing and the beautiful sunsets on the deck attached to the Gazebo. Watch sailboats, fishing and cargo ships pass right outside your window. The cottage, the gazebo and the setting make this a special and private retreat. The cottage is within walking distance of the most photographed lighthouse in New Brunswick and connected by bridge to the US mainland at Lubec, Maine. Head Harbor Wharf is within walking distance for Whale Watch and fishing trips as well as to watch the local fisherman at work. This cute house is fully furnished as a vacation home.


It is located on beautiful Campobello Island where the beloved summer home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt is open as a museum and sits surrounded by stunningly beautiful hiking trails and interesting beaches in the Roosevelt International Park. The Park offers a delightful and infromative "Tea with Eleanor" (Roosevelt) in one of the historic large cottages on the Park grounds. Campobello Island is connected by bridge to the US mainland at Lubec, Maine 04652 zip code.

The property has a flat lot so that a car can pull up to the entrance of the house, also the lawn is overlooking the ocean and is appropriate for tents for camping.

For overflow crowds, there is an additional quaint private cottage next door that sleeps 2-3 with a beautiful oceanfront view and large deck.

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. Also available for rental is a charming two-room cabin nestled in the woods between the Sea Urchin and the Whale of a View.
