The Periwinkle Cottage is a charming cottage in the woods with a lovely ocean view. The Periwinkle Cottage is tucked in the woods above a cove one mile south of the northern tip of Campobello Island and within walking distance of the beautiful East Quoddy Head Harbour Lighthouse and the Head Harbour wharf where working fishing boats dock and Whale Watch Tours take on passengers. The East Quoddy Head Lighthouse is one of the most photographed in the world . At low tide you can walk on the ocean floor to go over to the island the lighthouse sits. The Periwinkle is a 2 room cottage with an expansive deck for bird and whale watching and a lovely view of the Pasaquoddy Bay. Enjoy dining alfresco with eagles and ospreys flying overhead and the sounds of whales feeding in the cove below. Easy, close-up views of whales are frequent in the summer and early fall. This is a private and charming retreat surrounded by trees and Adirondack chairs on the cliff overlooking the water

Quaint and cozy
Quaint and cozy. Great location. Campobello is a real gem.
We highly recommend Ed to other vacation rental owners. They left the cottage in great condition and treated the cottage as their own. Hope they can return!

Cozy and peaceful
We had a wonderful stay at Periwinkle Cottage. The cottage is very small but has everything we needed and the screened in porch and deck are both great places to hang out when not exploring. It is extremely easy to cross the border into Lubec where we did some hiking and shopping. Campobello is such an interesting place and has miles of trails.
Thank you Becky for such a nice review. We are so happy when our guests enjoy one of our four private and unique oceanfront cottages. Campobello and these private cottages on Lighthouse Road are a great combination for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.
Becky treated the cottage as if it were her own and we highly recommend her to other vacation owners she may contact for future rentals.

Delightful location with everything you need to relax!
Sitting on the porch watching the whales go by is one of the most relaxing experiences we have had this year. Though there is satellite TV in the room, we never turned it on! The property was cozy, clean, comfortable and outfitted with everything we might need (except soap and shampoo - be sure to bring some). Dennis, the host, was warm and friendly - even going so far as to extend us an invite to his family & friend's party one night. Though there isn't much to do on the island besides being outdoors, we found it perfect for the relaxation we were hoping to experience. We are panning to return next year!
We loved having Scott and his family at the Periwinkle Cottage and hope they can return next year. They were wonderful guests who left the cottage in great condition when they left.

Clean, cozy - lots of places to relax outside
Lesley and her husband have stayed in several of our cottages on Campobello and they are always welcome. They brought their dog but you would have never known! Highly recommend these folks to other property owners.
Everything we had hoped for.
Cottage is rustic and cozy. It was equipped with everything we needed, and then some. The location is great; close to the lighthouse and restaurants. The property is very quiet and relaxing. We loved the screened in porch and the view. Periwinkle cottage is a great place to go to “get away from it all”. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Margaret and I loved having Larry and Jean as our guests at the Periwinkle Cottage. They took care of the cottage and when they left you could hardly tell they had been at the cottage. We highly recommend Larry and Jean to other property owners!
Please visit again!

Bring your binoculars because you don’t need to leave the deck to go whale watching.
That cottage was spotless and the hosts were especially nice. It’s small but don’t be put off by that. You will spend most of your time on the screens porch, deck, or fire pit by the water.
We were so happy to host Dennis and his wife. They love the cottage and the setting overlooking the ocean. They treated the cottage as if it were there own and I would highly recommend to cottage owners. We hope they return and get to stay at one of the larger cottages, The Whale of a View cottage, The Starfish Cottage or the Sea Urchin Cottage.
The Periwinkle Cottage is on beautiful Campobello Island, home of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt's beloved summer home and the museum and International Park which bear his name.
